One of Wales’ best-known property auctioneers, Marc Morrish, has become the new face of Wales’ fastest growing land, commercial and residential property auctioneers – Auction House South Wales.
Mr Morrish, aged 41 from Penarth, is a regular on the Welsh language property show, Ar Werth, where he was seen successfully auctioning a Cardiff property for £1.6 million – still the largest single property sold by a Welsh auctioneer, beating the record that he already held.
With more than two decades experience in estate agency and property sales, including the last nine years as an auctioneer, Mr Morrish brings huge expertise and professionalism to the auction room of Auction House South Wales.
Specialists in both residential and commercial properties, Auction House South Wales combines the strength of a national brand with on the ground, detailed local knowledge and expertise. It is the fastest growing auction house in the area, with a conversation rate of around 70% and completing sales totalling more than £12million in 2018 – a 47% growth on the previous year.
Marc Morrish, director and auctioneer at Auction House South Wales, said: “Auction House has become a major player in Wales very quickly and I am excited to be joining the business both as a director and as its auctioneer. The auction room is at the heart of a good auction business and I am looking forward to introducing myself as the new Auction House auctioneer on 11 July. My immediate focus is to further strengthen our position in Cardiff from our office in Mount Stuart Square.”
Welcoming Marc to the team, Auction House South Wales managing director, Mick Haywood said: “We experienced fantastic growth last year. Marc’s appointment will cement our position as the place to buy and sell residential and high street properties, building on our strength as a property auctioneer.”
