ABSTRACT
The article reports the real estate sales of Andrews & Robertson as of June 2008. Sales in Great Britain fell sharply, leaving more than half of the firm's inventory unsold. Sales were worth £14 million, two-third lower, as 54 percent of 171 lots failed to sell. Extreme caution on the part of buyers and difficulty in financing accounted for the poor sales, says auctioneer John Weatherall.
