Referring to the House Auction listed for Monday 27 August 2018...I've had a lot of contact with HotLotz over the past couple of years and have both been a buyer and an observer. The buzz in the Auction room - when a live auction happens is nothing short of electric. A Lot of the Auctions these days are conducted in a virtual Auction room online. It is a sophisticated system and allows you to bid anytime of the day from anywhere as long as you are hooked up to the internet. Congratulations to the founders and the team who bring this all to life.
