Affiliated Auctions & Realty LLC was originally founded in 1994 by John and Lisa Whitworth as a custom travel business conducting antiquity digs and recovery tours throughout Europe. Fueled by an appreciation of world culture and an appetite for collecting, the company quickly evolved into a full-service antiquities and real estate auction business and is now licensed to conduct auction and real estate business throughout Florida and Georgia. In addition to on-site floor bidding, Affiliated Auctions & Realty LLC also reaches a worldwide audience through mail, absentee bids, phone bids, internet bidding, and social media.
Enjoying the success of most early pioneers of Internet commerce, John re-invested in talented, trained staff to help enhance his business. Newly acquired specialists under his skilled leadership fueled expansive growth across many avenues of collecting. A wide array of items ranging from ancient artifacts to modern sports memorabilia – and everything in-between (coins, firearms, jewelry, art, toys, furniture, glass, pottery, silver, militaria and more) have all been harvested and sold successfully through Affiliated. Owning their own gallery building and its surrounding shopping center allows for ample parking, lot security, and convenient loading/unloading for both consignors and winning bidders. The Affiliated Team prides itself in providing a "small town" feel when conducting auctions. Owner John Whitworth believes "little things make the difference" and bidder-friendly services such as the ability to pay and pick up while the auction is in progress, help with loading/unloading cars, taking time to educate new bidders, and even welcoming children into the gallery are all a part of what makes an Affiliated auction special.
Conveniently located in Tallahassee, Affiliated Auctions & Realty, LLC is just two miles from Florida's thriving downtown area which, in addition to the State Capitol building, is home to the Senate, House of Representatives, and Florida Supreme Court.
