About Gunning and Company
A Main Line Estate Sales Company

Michael G. Gunning
Michael Gunning is an originating partner in the business.
He has been a fine art and antique collector, buyer and seller for more than 40 years.
Michael grew up along the Main Line of Philadelphia PA, attended Villanova University, and spent many years working in the high-line automotive industry.
In 2000, his passion for collecting got the best of him and he started an eBay business as a hobby that grew into Gunning and Company. It was a natural extension to begin offering moving and estate sales services.
Mike’s strategic thinking, attention to detail, and strong business sense ensures you get maximum exposure and benefit from the sale.
