News: Mark Jenkinson & Son tops region's results


Sales of more than £27m has seen Mark Jenkinson and Son record the best results in the whole of Yorkshire and the Humber for 2015, according to the latest industry research.

Mark Jenkinson and Son, which has offices in Sheffield and Chesterfield, beat off competition from more than 20 other individual auctioneers across the region with sales of £27,244,850 – more than £7.5m than the auctioneer ranked in second place.

The research by Essential Information Group (EIG), which analyses UK-wide auction data and is recognised as the industry standard, found Mark Jenkinson and Son also sold the most lots between January and December last year – 298 compared with the 248 of the firm's nearest rival.

Rotherham commercial properties going under the hammer with the auctioneers included the former bank premises on Broad Street, Parkgate which sold for £55,000 and has been converted into a pool hall.

Clifton Court, a Victorian building on Doncaster Gate (pictured) that was used as offices and previously owned by Rotherham Council, sold for £217,000 in February from a guide price of £125,000.

In September, the 1,800 sq ft offices at Milton House on Sheffield Road sold for £155,500. Burgess Commercial has since secured a deal with Enable Rail Academy that has seen the training provider take space to offer a wide range of railway industry training courses.

Adrian Little, head of the auction department at Mark Jenkinson and Son, said: "To have the sold most lots or generated the highest sales would each be wonderful accomplishments in themselves, so to be ranked so highly in both categories is doubly pleasing and a really significant achievement for us.

"EIG analyse all auction data and are held in high regard amongst the country's auctioneers so we are thrilled to be recognised as the top ranking individual auctioneer for sales in Yorkshire and the Humber.

"It means we have kicked off the New Year on a high and, as we are one of very few firms to hold auctions in January, we are looking forward to continuing and building on this momentum throughout 2016."

In the first auction of 2016, the historic building at 26 Moorgate Street in Rotherham town centre sold for £92,000. The flood-damaged former offices was sold a year previous and has planning permission to be converted into residential.
