Law School Expansion: Just over a month ago, auctioneers Sheldon Good & Co. announced that an Irvine Spectrum site would go on the block, the first property in the office park to be sold off. That raised immediate speculation about who might be the successful bidder. The 6.6-acre site had once been pegged for an office development but, through a foreclosure, eventually ended up in the hands of First Fidelity Thrift & Loan Assn. in San Diego.

"If you have a Rembrandt to sell, what do you do with it? Take it to your local art gallery? Or call Christie's for auction? Valuable horse flesh is sold at auction, just like wine. And what is the stock market? One big auction." So says Darrell Hoover, president of R. Thomas Ashley, a division of Hoover Financial Group in Newport Beach. Hoover also said that by the year 2000, up to 30% of all real estate sold will be sold at auction.
