Rogers Realty & Auction has announced that the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has hired Rogers Realty to conduct auctions, brokerage and marketing services to sell surplus real estate in Catawba County, N.C.
House Bill 501 gives the NCDOT authority to sell residue properties by auction, brokerage, sealed bids and direct negotiation. Residue assets are properties that are acquired for highway improvements. When portions of the acquired lands are left over after road improvements the lands are called residue. Rogers is the exclusive real estate and auction firm chosen to provide sales disposition services in Western North Carolina. “Our firm has monitored and lobbied for the North Carolina legislature to consider selling residue assets for seven years,” according to Bracky Rogers, who personally made many trips to Raleigh, N.C., in hopes this concept would become a reality for his firm.
“Our initial efforts will focus on properties in Catawba County and will begin in March,” said Mark Rogers, the lead realty specialist for the NCDOT project. When available, a list of assets will be posted at www.rogersrealty.com.Rogers will manage these services out of its Mount Airy, N.C., office. Rogers Realty has an additional office in Stuart.
