About Us

Macor Associates Inc. was started by two guys from different times and different places, in Phoenix, Arizona in 1988. To these two, Phoenix was a new frontier. One came to establish a new career; the other seeking a way to supplement income. Both ended up as real estate licensed business salesmen with the same firm.

In 1989 MACOR Associates, Inc. was created with a hired broker who was paid a commission and we became a company determined to make the sale or purchase of a business a mutually rewarding experience with the commission as our reward.

The success of MACOR has been testimony to the validity of this philosophy. Ninety percent of our listings come to us as referrals. These referrals come from earlier buyers, sellers and from other professionals who are knowledgeable of our way of doing business and our success.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you. We are truly market-wide brokers, both by business type and price.
