Is there a way to find out what the lowest bid on a house for sale is or was?

I am looking at house that I really like and it is very nice but the asking price it too high, it is an estate and two sons of the owner are selling it . The realtor for the property has said there have been offers but they were all rejected by the sons as “ridiculous”. I know that the realtor won’t and can’t tell me what the lowest offers were, but I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to find this out. The house was custom built by the owner in 1955 and it is truly well built but I also feel that the sons are being too nostalgiac about the worth of it. I have gone on Zillow for it’s assessed value and it is much lower than the asking price. Can anyone help me? Thank you for answering!!!
