This is one way to unload a few homes quite quickly. At one time Baseball Hall of Famer “the big unit” Randy Johnson’s once priced $25 million dollar pad and Villa Paradiso a privately gated estate in the heart of Paradise Valley once priced $27.5 million were the most expensive listings in Arizona and are up for auction. Randy Johnson’s luxury pad has been on the market for over 1500 days while the other has been up for sale less than a year. Both these sellers have decided to change things up and try their luck at auction.
