May 10, 2021 | Market Insights and updates from DAA Seattle’s Dave Blake.
We had the opportunity to celebrate our 8th Anniversary Sale Friday, May 7th. The sale was our largest consignment in over a year, and we experienced a slight shift in market pricing. Shifts in values and conversions are par for the course, but we continue to see higher conversions and pricing than we have in previous years. Our sellers continue to trust the first money being the best money as we witnessed successful sales from Honda & Acura Remarketing, Ford Motor Company, Hyundai Financial, and Ally Auto Remarketing. Our dealer consignors were not shy in releasing inventory; Korum Ford, Northwest Motorsport, RTA Direct, Younker Nissan, and Honda of Fife all participated.
DAA Seattle team is proud of what has been accomplished over the past 8 years. Returning to the Seattle market was extremely important to Bob and the McConkey family and although the McConkey brand and reputation are well respected and known throughout the industry, it took time to solidify our presence. DAA Seattle had to come into its own by earning the trust, respect, and confidence of this market’s dealer community.
Our team is extremely grateful for the relationships and support we have established with our customer base. We are confident, passionate, and enthusiastic about providing a competitive marketplace where our customers feel valued. As we evolve, our mission is to provide in lane, online and digital solutions for our customers that will support their success and meet them where they are. None of what we do is possible without you, our dealers keeping us on track by challenging, trusting, and supporting us.
Thank you for your continued commitment to do business with the McConkey Auction Group.
Hope to see you online or in the lanes this week!
Dave Blake, General Manager
