The former Headquarters of the Lynn Daily Item sold at auction on July 15 for $800,000 by JJ Manning Auctioneers.
Auction direct mail piece for 38 Exchange St. Lynn, MA.
Dear Herrick Lutts, After understanding the auction process is a very viable option to selling property, JJ Manning came highly recommended to us; something we now whole‐heartedly endorse, too. Justin Manning, Paul Herrick & Peter Lutts went to work on our behalf and a building that had languished for a year and a half was expertly marketed and sold within 8 weeks. Remarkable! .... and a very satisfying experience to work with Justin and his associates.
I wish I had found JJ Manning to unlock the value of our century‐old building before we did; in retrospect, we wasted a lot of time with limited interest and price offers. Highly creditable marketing is Manning’s forte; a successful mix of traditional and multiple electronic site exposures lead to widespread interest and a successful auction. That, and the professional, thorough and courteous manner in which JJ Manning as a company conducted business leading up to a successful auction. It’s no wonder they are leaders in their field!
Very Truly Yours,
Peter Hastings Gamage,
President, Hastings & Sons Publishing Co.
