In the past few years AuctionAZ.com and Cunningham & Associates, Inc. has sold over $200 million in real estate and industrial and commercial assets at auction. George’s goal has always been to make buying and selling real estate and personal property assets as efficient as selling a publicly traded stock; to create a marketplace where buyers and sellers can exchange assets at a price determined by fair and competitive bidding.

The business was started 67+ years ago by his father in Eastern Arkansas.  Bob grew the business in Arizona by forming relationships with banks and Trustees and became well known for handling bankruptcy auctions.  He thinks he may have also written the first real estate auction contract in Arizona while working with Tom Fannin Realty back in 1977.
