du Plessis Auctions have once again written auction history, with their 3rd "White Glove" auction in a single year. In industry terms, a "White Glove Auction" is one in which 100% of an auction sells under the hammer. It is a very rare event, with Sotheby's which was founded in 1744, recording their 1st such event in September 2015. The contents of a fine College Park residence was auctioned by du Plessis Auctions resulting in a 100% clearance rate, and further cementing them as the premium property contents specialists.
Auctioneer, Marc du Plessis says "To be an auctioneer that conducts one white glove auction in their career is a really special milestone. This year has been a dream for me with my third in one year alone. What can I say... I had the best teacher possible, my father".
Marc has been in the family business for 33 years, and stepped up to the rostrum full-time in September 2016, to become du Plessis' principal auctioneer. Since wielding the gavel in this short period of time, he has broken auction World Records and now placed himself amongst a very elite group of auctioneers worldwide.
