About Us

Welcome to the Spikes Auction Company website!

Spikes Auction Company is owned by Gabe Spikes and wife Darla Spikes and located in Bowie, Texas. Gabe was reared in Stoneburg, Texas, loved the farm life, and enjoyed attending the local cattle auctions from a very young age. At the age of 18, he attended Missouri Auction School and has been a licensed auctioneer in the State of Texas since 1991. In the fall of ’91, Gabe held his first estate auction in Bowie, with a mere $200 PA system, and lots of help from family. He had big dreams for the future as an auctioneer and has not stopped. Since that time, Gabe has been the lead auctioneer for many Livestock Auction Markets in Texas and Oklahoma, and has conducted hundreds of auctions for estates, farm equipment, business liquidations, antiques and collectibles, purebred and club sales and all kinds of general merchandise.

 

Gabe has been a contestant in the World Livestock Auctioneer Contest several times through the years and has been in the top ten twice, competing against the “best” in North America. He has been a full time auctioneer for twenty years and currently sells for four Livestock Auction Markets.

 

Gabe and Darla have three children still home on the farm, Casey, Maci, and Maggie. The family lives on a small farm outside of Bowie where they raise Dorper Sheep and a few Herefords. The Spikes kids show cattle and sheep across the state and stay involved in school and sports.

 

As a family operated business, during the last twenty years, Spikes Auction Company has held many auctions from small to very large and takes pride in their service to customers, no matter of size or dollar amount. Spikes Auction Company personnel are well trained and experienced in total sale management from advertising to sale prep to auction day. The Spikes family believes the auction method of business is a smart choice, whether it be livestock, general merchandise, or personal property. Through dedication to honesty, integrity, and satisfied customers, Spikes Auction strives to give both sellers and buyers exactly what they want in their auction.

 

Please feel free to contact Gabe or Darla to discuss and learn about the auction way of merchandising and how they can help you obtain the highest dollar and dispose of all your items or property at one time.

 

Every auction is different and fees vary, but Spikes Auction will be happy to offer a free consultation and put these many years of experience to work for you.
