Our history

LSH launched its national property auction service line in 2010, with a team who had successfully been running auctions for 30 years. Oliver Childs joined as national head of auctions in 2011 and developed the team’s presence throughout the private and public sectors.

Our Northern Ireland team was formed in 2014, following LSH's acquisition of BTWShiells and has an enviable market share, regularly conducting sales in Belfast for many of the major banks and regional property companies.

The combined Lambert Smith Hampton team has grown to become one of the most experienced property auction teams in the UK. Our annual turnover (by £ volume sold) has increased by over 150% over the last three years and we have a reputation for having one of the highest sales success rates in the industry - averaging 90% over the last 3 years against the wider market’s average of approximately 75%.

In 2015, LSH acquired ES Group, including its outstanding plant and machinery auctions team – a perfect complement our growing LSH property auction team which has resulted in a truly comprehensive auction service.

We now have a proven track record in the machinery and business asset field and have successfully disposed of plant and machinery for clients in both private and public sectors over many years. Regular disposals throughout the UK using both conventional and online sales methods, provide a constant flow of data that keeps us up-to-date with trends in the marketplace.
