Lake Geneva Estate Sold at Absolute Auction for $5.885 Million

LAKE GENEVA, Wis. (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

Industry leader Grand Estates Auction Company, with an unsurpassed closing success rate for luxury real estate auctions, sold a stunning six-bedroom waterfront estate in exclusive Lake Geneva., at absolute auction on May 19th. As a result of an intensive international marketing and public relations campaign, the elegant estate situated on 1.82 acres along Geneva Lakes shore generated more than 55,000 unique website visits from 11 countries including the United States, France, Italy, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Portugal, Serbia, Mexico, and China; received more than 430 inquiries; was previewed by more than 75 groups in a five-day period leading up to the auction; and had 16 registered bidders on auction day. The winning bid of $ 5.885 million is the second-highest price for a single-family home in Lake Geneva in more than 5 years according to MLS data.

We were able to attract interest from a large pool of interested buyers from throughout the world resulting in this record-breaking sale, stated Grand Estates Auction Company Director of Sales Development Stacy K. Reich. A Grand Estates absolute auction combines one-of-a-kind properties, extensive marketing, thorough due diligence, and the air of excitement that only live auction can create. Contracts are signed, earnest money is in escrow, and both the seller and purchaser look forward to closing within 30 days.

Sellers of luxury properties in particular are looking for ways to distinguish their property in the marketplace, and are increasingly turning to specialists like Grand Estates Auction Company that provide targeted advertising, direct marketing, public relations and social media marketing to attract a qualified global audience. Unlike traditional listings where local traffic is the driving factor, live auctions attract a select pool of qualified and highly interested bidders nationwide and beyond.

The Grand Estates team was extremely professional and expertly managed a successful auction sales and marketing campaign, stated Diane Taillon of Arbor Crowne Properties. The absolute auction process generated tremendous interest that far surpassed the activity level of a traditional listing and resulted in obtaining true market value for the property.

Absolute auctions require no minimum bid or reserve price and are growing in popularity with buyers and sellers of luxury real estate throughout the world due to their timeliness and transparency. There are no contingencies, no lengthy negotiations, and timelines for closing are already established.

I was so impressed with the Grand Estates Auction Company team, stated Loretta Rosenmayer, a bidder at the Lake Geneva absolute auction. You were all warm, welcoming, gracious, unpretentious, playful and yet very professional and informative. Collectively you fostered an atmosphere of comfort and support.

The Starting Line **SOLD OUT** – Beach Slang, Like Lions

The Starting Line **SOLD OUT** – Beach Slang, Like Lions
Event on 2014-12-26 19:30:00

The Starting Line

Ken Vasoli: Vocals, Bass Tom Gryskiewicz: Drums
Matt Watts: Guitar Mike Golla: Guitar

On The Starting Line's aptly titled debut, Say It Like You Mean It, the Pennsylvania-based quartet began where the best bands leave off–with a fully realized sound all its own. Now following the remarkable success of Say It Like You Mean It, the band, responding to fan requests, is releasing a six song acoustic EP titled The Make Yourself At Home EP.

In just over a year from its release, Say It Like You Mean It sold in excess of 300,000 copies. Quite an accomplishment in itself, made all the more remarkable by the band member's young ages and that they did so at a time when the chart tops and airwaves are overridden with grown men trying to pose as kids by wearing shorts and backwards baseball caps.

Even the band's formation seems unusual to those not in Gen-Y — the band started via email… Subject header: "Jamming And Shit."

Message: "My name is Matt. I live about 20 minutes from you. I checked out your AOL profile. You like a lot of cool bands. I was wondering if you knew anyone who would be interested in singing for my band."

"I was like, 'What the fuck is this?'" recalls singer-bassist Ken Vasoli, the email recipient. Fortunately, he hit "reply" instead of "delete." Soon after, he was rehearsing and hanging out with his future bandmates. The chemistry between the four musicians was instantly apparent, even if the goal at the time was simple.

"We just wanted to have fun, and rock out with friends," says Matt of the band's original vision. But like many relationships sparked in the anonymity of cyberspace, things were not what they initially appeared to be.

"Ken lied about his age when he first started hanging out with us," Matt reveals with a laugh. "He said, 'I'm like 15.' And we thought, 'That's cool. He'll be driving soon.' But we didn't catch on to the 'like' part; he was actually 14."

Not a problem–unless your dream label happens to phone wanting to sign you and send you out on the road with a few of your favorite bands. By 2000, The Starting Line had caught a small indie label's interest through touring and grass-roots internet marketing. Recognizing the band's immense potential, that indie label passed along the band's demos to Drive-Thru's brother and sister team Richard and Stefanie Reines.

"They called me at work and told me they wanted to sign us," recalls Mike. "We all freaked out."

"That was the biggest excitement I've ever had in my life," says Ken. "I heard the news and I did not believe it; I thought it was a joke. I was smiling for weeks after that."

Living up to its name, The Starting Line was moving fast, and the band's members had to accelerate along with it. For one, Ken was still in high school, while Matt was working his way through college. Fortunately, Ken had understanding parents–they understood he needed to finish his education before hitting the road. With the help of a hip guidance counselor, the singer doubled up on classes to graduate early. The downtime also gave Matt time to finish his degree.

"I didn't leave the house, and just did school work," Ken recalls. "But it was only for a semester and a couple summer classes."

Free to focus exclusively on music for the first time in its career, the band experienced a growth spurt. The results are apparent on Say It Like You Mean It and the stripped-down follow up The Make Yourself At Home EP. The first three songs of the acoustic EP were written while touring in the summer of 2002 and were recorded by Bob Jones of The Prize Fight in his bedroom. For convenience, the three songs were recorded acoustic and accompanied by beats from an 80's Casio keyboard. The EP also includes an acoustic version of "The Best of Me" and two new songs, one of which was recorded in Ken's basement in March 2003 and the other was recorded on the band's tour bus this past summer. It was a great experience for the band to create this album as independently as they did.

Lingering good-byes and songs of loneliness are the inevitable by-product of the band's non-stop touring schedule, which has included extended stints with Drive-Thru labelmates New Found Glory and Finch, shows with Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday and Good Charlotte, a jaunt through Europe, as well as this summer's Warped Tour, and the headlining slot on this fall's Drive-Thru Records tour.

Not surprisingly, the full itinerary has turned an already dynamic live show into a display of breathlessness. Straps break during heroic leaps. Skin shreds on strings and sticks and post-show bruises appear in unlikely places. That commitment to putting the music across has established a strong bond with fans.

"As soon as I saw kids singing along to our songs, I said, 'I want to do this forever,'" says Matt, who first experienced the sensation in the band's second home, New Jersey.

Drive-Thru's Stefanie recalls the point at which Ken first vocalized that feeling. While on the road with New Found Glory–one of his early favorite groups, whose members have since become his friends — Ken suddenly realized how far The Starting Line has traveled in the past three years.

"Wow," he said, shaking his head and thinking out loud backstage. "I'm supposed to be a senior in high school."

Then he hit the stage and kick-started the dream all over again.
