  • Shaun Vigers

    Director SVA Property Auctions

    Shaun Vigers has been working in various sectors of the Scottish property industry for over 34 years, with the focus for the majority of the period, being the sale of property assets by public auction.
    In 1983, British Rail Property Board had a requirement to hold an auction in Scotland and Shaun was part of the team that, after a gap of over 20 years, re-introduced large scale commercial and residential property auctions to the Scottish property market. Having “re-invented the auction wheel”, in a Scottish context, he graduated to the rostrum in 1992 and went on to form his own company, SVA Property Auctions Ltd, in 1999.
    SVA acts for a broad range of public and private sector clients, all with equally diverse portfolios of surplus property assets. Shaun has worked on numerous projects to actively decrease client’s redundant asset portfolios, successfully finding new owners for sometimes difficult to sell properties and at the same time maximising best possible value.
    In recent years this work has involved providing an increasing amount of pre-auction advice and assisting with preparation work, prior to bringing the property assets to the market.
