Capitalizing on decades of individual experience and combined capabilities, a top-level team of real estate development, auction, sales and marketing specialists has formed Dreyer Real Estate Auctions.

“Bringing the best in the business together to represent the finest in real estate is an exceptional advantage for property sellers and buyers. Our distinction as a firm goes beyond a well-run auction,” said Charles Dreyer. “We’ve brought together a group of experienced professionals focused on producing a premier level of sales-driven strategic marketing, expert auction planning and execution, thereby streamlining the client’s decision to accelerate a successful sale that exceed client expectations.”

The breadth and depth of experience held by Dreyer Real Estate Auctions brings into play some of the most distinguished executives in the industry.

Utilizing his remarkable talents for negotiation, sales and auctioneering, Dreyer is a sought after resource, particularly with luxury caliber property assets.

Bringing uncompromising operational quality to the new firm is DREA President Michael R. Engle.
