Select praise for NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions

“You cannot compare NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions to other auctioneers. They are auctioneers and attorneys, so they manage the whole process through closings and excess proceeds. This saves a tremendous amount of staff time. Selling tax deeded property is their specialty. They create a professional webpage and advertising which attracts motivated buyers. Once the auction is advertised, they field the large volume of phone calls and questions, further saving municipal staff time. We have used NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions for multiple auctions and generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue.”

Conner MacIver

Town Administrator (Barrington, NH)

“The Town of Bethlehem used the services of Weston and Rick Sager, co-owners of NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions, for our town tax deeded property auction. Bethlehem had not had a property auction in over 5 years and the properties included in this auction were the most complicated to sell. Both Rick and Weston were fantastic to work with, explaining the process, and responding to numerous public inquiries, which made the process much easier for the town. The Town of Bethlehem will continue to use the services of NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions!”

Mary Moritz

Town Administrator (Bethlehem, NH)

Hiring Rick Sager and his team was a great success when we were having our town auction for disposing of tax-acquired property. He and his team were extremely professional and handled all aspects of the auction which was a tremendous help for our small staffed office. As a former Town Administrator I would surely recommend NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions to anyone!
Cassandra Pearce

Former Town Administrator (Tamworth, NH)

“Rick Sager and his team at NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions conducted an efficient and effective auction of the City’s tax deeded property, handling all aspects of the sale from notice and advertising to closing.  The City’s goal of returning the properties to the tax rolls while recovering a sizeable portion of the unpaid taxes was realized, with the added benefit of the positive experience working with Rick and his staff.”
Jane Taylor

Former City Solicitor (Claremont, NH)

“Our experience with Rick and NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions was exceptional.  From start to finish, the process was handled thoroughly and professionally.  We highly recommend the services of NH Tax Deed & Property Auctions and will be using them again in the future!”
