MEET CHAD ROFFERS

Chad Roffers is the Chairman of global luxury real estate company, Concierge Auctions. Chad Roffers initial passion for technology was what ultimately lead to his real estate career.

While pursuing an MBA at the University of Denver, in January of 1994, Chad Roffers served as the director of business development at US WEST.  After graduate school, Chad moved to Silicon Valley and worked for an auction startup, AdAuction.com, as their Vice President of Business Development. Chad’s experience at AdAuction.com put him in the center of tech innovation at a very important time. He was fortunate to work with the founding team of eBay in the time before the company went public, and it was his experience there which ultimately sparked a lightbulb moment for Chad. He became fascinated by the auction model and wondered why it hadn’t been used in real estate. During this time, Chad saw that real estate, at that point, really hadn’t adapted to new technology and there was a real opportunity there. Chad knew that in order to really make an impact in real estate market, he’d first have to understand the business from every facet. From there, Chad trained as a real estate agent from the ground up. In 2001, he joined Michael Saunders & Company, a Florida-based luxury real estate brokerage.

With his sales experience and extensive business training, Chad found himself to be quite successful in the real estate industry. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2002 and later became ranked among the top 10 percent of realtors nationwide. Once Chad had cultivated enough experience in closing high-value transactions, he went on to co-found SKY Sotheby’s International Realty in 2004, which he later grew into a large operation with over $500 million in sales. Following SKY Sotheby’s International Realty, Chad went on to cofound a real-estate-centric CRM company, Pulse Realty Software. Pulse Realty Software was later sold to Lone Wolf Technologies, one of the larger software companies in the real estate space.
 
Concierge Auctions was an evolution of Chad’s practical experience in the brokerage business, coupled with his time in the technology world. During his time at SKY Sotheby’s International Realty, Chad was able to start actualizing his dream of bringing the simplicity and transparency of the auction model to real estate. He found that there was an opportunity to use auctions as a choice for high-net-worth sellers who needed liquidity on their own timeline. His next challenge was to then merge his love of technology with the real estate auction world, which inevitably lead to the founding of Concierge Auctions.
 
Chad, partnered with luxury marketing expert Laura Brady, joined the Concierge Auctions team in June of 2008. Together, they’ve led the company’s growth to over $2 billion in real estate auction sales, broken world records for highest priced homes ever achieved at auction, and garnered activity across 40 U.S. states and 28 countries. The firm owns the most comprehensive and intelligent database of high-net-worth real estate buyers and sellers in the industry. Additional accolades include being named No. 38 on the 2018 Entrepreneur 360™ List recognizing 360 small businesses every year that are mastering the art of and science of growing a business in the areas of impact, innovation, growth, leadership, and business valuation; one of Inman News’ Most Influential Leaders in Real Estate; 20 marketing awards, including “Best Website” and “Best in Show” for print and film from USA TODAY and the National Auctioneer’s Association; “Best Overall Marketing” from Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate; and 23 film production awards from The Telly Awards. Concierge Auctions has contributed more than 200 homes to-date as part of its Key for Key® giving program in partnership with Giveback Homes, which guarantees that for every property the company sells, a new home will be built for a family in need. 
 
Chad is a member of the National Auctioneers Association. He has been quoted in the media on his insight into the luxury real estate market in top-tier publications including Barron’s and The New York Times.
