IAM Sold won two impressive golds for Residential Auction House of the Year and Supplier of the Year: Services and Products at The Negotiator Awards 2017.
Who are IAM Sold? Launched in 2009 by Ben Ridgway and Jamie Cooke, IAM Sold had ambitious beginnings. This drive to succeed paid off – between September 2011 and 2012, IAM Sold doubled the number of sales they had made, and by May 2013, 500 Estate Agency branches were offering their services.
Fast forward to December 2016, and IAM Sold reached a key milestone with £1,000,000,000+ Capital Value Raised. Since then, their impressive growth has continued – they had a great breaking first quarter to this year, with 854 lots sold and £96m total capital raised. This compares with 632 lots and £69.8m capital value for the same period in 2017.

Judges’ Comments: “An outstanding entry, hugely impressive and detailed, setting out exactly why the gavel should fall right in front of them… An extremely strong financial performance demonstrates the power of this excellent additional ‘bolt on’ service for traditional agencies.”
Debrief – Jamie Cooke, Auction Managing Director: “We were absolutely delighted to win the two Gold awards at The Negotiator Awards 2017, which is one of the most prestigious award schemes in the industry. This was a collective effort and all the credit goes to our staff and partner agents, as without their dedication and hard work it wouldn’t be possible. The strong partnerships we have are core to our success and it’s important that all of our stakeholders have been recognised through this award.
“The award helps support staff morale; it makes them feel proud, and helps them understand that they do play a significant role in a highly successful business. I think the awards are a great way to show the power of a cumulative effort, and how your day to day role can really contribute to our outcome. It also enables us to continue to build our brand recognition and reputation, so more property professionals become aware of us and our products and services.
“It’s a great selling tool for our business to say to customers and suppliers that we’re a multi award-winning business, and for our partners to be able to provide an award winning auction service to their clients. The award also generated trade media coverage which strengthens and reaffirms our position as a market leader of auction solutions. I would definitely recommend The Negotiator Awards as a platform to showcase your success.”
