About Curran Miller Auction Realty & Past Client Testimonials


"Curran Miller Auction/Realty, Inc. continues to grow as a family-owned and operated business, based on the same principles of excellence, integrity, and empathy on which it was founded. Our team strives to render a service that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of both buyers and sellers."

Our Story

If experience and knowledge count, then Curran Miller Auction/Realty definitely has it! In 1936, Curran Miller graduated from auction school at the age of 19 and established a fledgling auction company during the difficult years of the Great Depression. Selling everything from horses, cars, and wagons to houses and farmland, Curran built the company upon the desire to obtain the highest dollar value for the seller and represent the property being sold in a fair and honest manner to the buyer.

Over the years, his expertise grew and his company thrived. A few years later, Curran’s son, Hugh attended auction school at the age of 14 and joined the family business. Since graduating from the Reppert School of Auctioneering, Hugh has dedicated his life to advancing the auction profession. He is a Past President and Hall of Fame inductee of both Indiana and National Auctioneers Associations. In addition, Hugh is one of the founders of the prestigious Certified Auctioneers Institute, which is recognized as the symbol of excellence and professionalism in the auction industry.

Today, Curran Miller Auction/Realty, Inc. continues to operate as a family-owned business in the Tri-State and around the country conducting over 150 auctions per year. Hugh’s daughters, Wendy Miller and Stephanie Miller-McKinney, also play an active role in the business. Wendy continues to grow the company’s expertise as an Auctioneer and Real Estate Broker. Stephanie works as the backbone of the company serving as both Secretary and Treasurer.

By maintaining the values and ethics that the company was built on while embracing the latest technology and fresh marketing concepts, the CMAR team provides the highest quality service to both buyers and sellers.

Our Clients Say it Best


"Your team of professionals did an extraordinary job in liquidating a very challenging estate belonging to my late mother!"  

Ted Troyer

"I have the greatest respect & appreciation for Curran Miller and the work they did for me and my family. Wendy Miller and her staff tackled a huge job that seemed nearly impossible to me, and they managed it beautifully.  Everyone went out of their way to be helpful, coming up with ideas & solutions that made my life much easier. They were professional, responded quickly to any questions and concerns I had, and were truly delightful to work with. From our first meeting until the completion of the online auction, Hugh and Wendy thought outside the box to make our estate and real estate sales great successes. I recommend Curran Miller wholeheartedly and only wish every business did such a stellar job."

Janet Whittington

"Thank you to everyone at Curran Miller Auction / Realty, Inc. for achieving an over-the-top price for our land.  Mom and Dad must have been smiling down on the sale saying to each other "We did good for our kids!"   
Mr. Kenneth Christy & The Christy Family Heirs

"We received an offer on our land prior to the auction.  We didn’t accept the offer and proceeded with the sale.  We’re sure glad we did!  Our land sold for significantly more at auction than the offer.  We learned that if you’re going to sell land, sell it at auction and if you’re going to have an auction, use Curran Miller Auction/Realty, Inc."
Mr. Jarrell & Mr. Cleon Effinger  

"We want to extend an extra "Thank You" to you and your staff for all the help, support and advice you extended to us.  We know this is your J.O.B. but we feel you all went beyond what is required by the job description.  You all made this stressful situation easier to deal with and we will miss having contact with you after the sale is completed."
Harold & Claudia Schenk

"The Team at Curran – Miller are great to work with.  Hugh and Wendy Miller take the time to get to know their client(s) and you can feel confident that they are going to do a great job in representing your estate.  I would recommend Curran Miller for all of your estate auction needs, large or small."
Tricia Vaupel
