Robert Alexander, Principal Broker & Auctioneer

Principal Broker & Auctioneer

Robert Alexander became a real estate agent in 1977 and began successfully selling many fine properties by private treaty. However, the market became very stagnant due to high inflation rates and even higher interest rates in the late 70’s & early 80’s. Good quality well located properties were listed for months- often averaging 15 to 20 months and more. During this time Robert encountered many sellers that needed to sell as soon as possible and discovered a professional real estate auction service was sorely needed in this area. He already had a love for auctions since he frequently attended auctions with his dad as a little boy and on into adulthood. Robert admits with a grin taking a very special date (his wife Jeanne) to the local auction barn in downtown Paducah on Saturday nights.

Robert researched selling Real Estate at auction across the United States. He graduated from auction school in 1983. Shortly after RARE- Robert Alexander Real Estate transitioned and Robert Alexander Real Estate Auction Group came to life. Today it is well known as RARE Auction Group, Robert Alexander Broker & Auctioneer.

RARE Auction group has been awarded countless auction marketing awards (as recently as 2 weeks prior to this writing).

Conducting 1000’s of successful auctions in the 5 state area RARE Auction Group has evolved into a 2 generation auction company. Robert’s daughters, Ashley & Staci, grew up in the business, graduated from Murray State University, and are now both licensed professional auctioneers.

They head up RARE Auction Group’s Online Auction Marketing Department. This includes live simulcast Real Estate Auctions. With their extensive national research & marketing they have opened our auctions up to the world recently drawing a high end buyer as far away as Seattle, Washington. They have a “born into it” love for auctions.

Saying that we love the auction business is an understatement. We recommend buying & selling at auction without reservation. We buy & sell real estate through auction almost exclusively. Robert purchased his first home at auction and all the homes he and his family has lived in and enjoyed throughout his auction career, as well as countless investment properties. The same goes for selling. Robert has sold all of his homes by simply picking up the phone or on the auction block exclusively. Ashley and Staci also bought their first homes at auction. We believe in what we do, we practice what we preach—we invest in real estate and buy and sell at auction.

"Dear Robert, I was personally touched by the generosity you showed New Pathways over the sale of our house on Briarcliff. Not only did you provide us with exceptional and professional auction services, but you also blessed our children by covering our fees which helps us more than you know. Your generosity helped to put us on the right foot financially to move forward in reaching out to more children. We are blessed to be able to do this ministry and are only able to do so because of people in the community like you. We hope to stay in touch and will always remember your services if we need them again in the future. Thank you again and God bless! Sincerely, Dr. Ricky Burse Executive Director" New Pathways for Children

"Dear Mr. Alexander, Mike and I want to take a few minutes to thank you for taking care of the auction of our Kentucky Lake Home. After living in the Western Kentucky area, we learned through the years that you were the premier auctioneer for all of Western Kentucky. We had a great deal of apprehensions initially, but after meeting with you we felt very comfortable in your hands. We also appreciate the fact the closing was less than 30 days from the date of the sale. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking for quality service. Again, thank you to you and your very capable staff. Mike and Pam Stamper Murfreesboro, TN"
