Chad Roffers: Accelerating outcomes in all business environments

On this week’s episode of the Power House Podcast, HousingWire CEO Clayton Collins talks with Chad Roffers, founder of Concierge Auctions. Chad discusses the early stages of his career in real estate sales and brokerage leadership, his launch of SKY Sotheby’s, and the difficulties of building a technology business during the 2009 Financial Crisis. 

These early entrepreneurial ventures set the stage for the massive success Chad has found with Concierge Auctions, a business he founded in 2008 and continues to lead today. Chad’s entrepreneurial journey includes multiple launches and exits, and he shares the wins and losses that developed him as an entrepreneur and executive.
