Harcourts Prestige Properties REALTORS®, Brandon and Lindsey Gates, are listing a property through Harcourts Auctions out of the Kensington neighborhood.

In 1930, this property was sold successfully through non-distressed auction, and Harcourts is restoring its original method of sale through their non-distressed auction platform.

The vintage, 5-bedroom property lies in Talmadge Park District and resembles an old castle structure. It is scheduled to appear at the Harcourts Live Auction Event in San Diego on February 22nd, starting at $900,000 bidding to start from price.

“The home is truly breathtaking with incredible original features that many historians and astute restorative investors would certainly appreciate,” discusses Lindsey Gates.


When Brandon and Lindsey Gates mentioned the Harcourts Auction Method and the success it has seen in the US market, the property owner of 20 years was immediately open to the process.

“Listing this property through our auction platform was an easy decision. Since we are not capping ourselves with a sales price, the entire marketplace can come visit the property and see for themselves what it is worth,” mentions Brandon Gates.

One of the primary purposes of Harcourts Auctions is to have the ability for buyers to see their competition in real-time on each property.

“The Harcourts Auctions process allows buyers and sellers to make an accurate assessment of the marketplace while providing them with a comfortable and transparent environment,” mentions Director of Harcourts Auctions, Ben Brady.

Harcourts Auctions continues to grow at every live event, with large crowds and results proving the strength in their process. In their last Live Auction alone, Harcourts sold over $5,000,000 worth of real estate on the night.

Harcourts USA holds monthly Live Auction Events, all open to the public. The next Live Auction is scheduled for Thursday, February 22nd, at the brand new Del Mar location; 445 Marine View Avenue, Suite 260, Del Mar, CA 92014.
