ProStar Auctions Opens Real Estate Office

LAKE OZARK, MO--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Three experts in their fields have partnered to offer a new alternative in the way real estate properties are marketed and sold in the Lake Area.

Tonia Grein, a leader in the Lake real estate industry, along with William C. Shively and Robert A. Shively, who bring more than 30 years of professional management and real estate auction experience to the table, have formed ProStar Auctions, LLC, a highly professional and pro-active real estate auction firm that promises to deliver a time-and-date-certain sale of property.

"We live in a society that is continually evolving, yet, until now, the methods of selling real estate have basically stayed the same for decades," said Robert Shively. "However, that's about to change. Clients will now have an accelerated marketing option."

He said ProStar's innovative time sensitive marketing approach will handle real estate transactions in an entirely different and tremendously more productive manner.

William Shively added, "Within the next five to seven years, the National Association of Realtors' data projects that more than one-third of all real estate will be sold by auction."

Grein said, "First, a real estate auction asset specialist will tour the client's property. After an agreement has been reached, a date for the auction will be set from 30 to 45 days out. A marketing campaign will begin immediately that includes brochures, email blasts and strategically placed advertising. All interested parties will be invited to inspect the property during a four-to-six-hour period weeks prior to the auction. Then on the day of the auction event, which can be held either on or off site, the entire process will be streamed live with both audio and video on the internet so bidders anywhere in the world can take part."

Auction bidders must be prequalified and the property will be sold with the guarantee of a clear and marketable title with no contingencies. "When the auctioneer hammers the gavel and pronounces the property 'SOLD,' it's sold," according to Robert Shively.

The trio agreed, ProStar's accelerated marketing method will result in a winning scenario for everyone who uses their service, including Realtors, buyers and sellers.

ProStar Auctions offices are located on Business Highway 54 at Crossing West Drive.
