How We Got Here

How Nutt Auction Company became one of the largest live & online auction houses in the Texarkana Market

The Nutt Auction Company started in 1992 by John and Roy “Bud” Nutt. Growing up John went to car auctions with his Grandfather which instilled his passion for the auction industry. He had always been interested in the auction process. When he was 28 years old, he went to Missouri Auction School in Kansas City and shortly after, The Nutt Auction Company held their first consignment auction in Texarkana, TX.

Our company has continued to grow throughout the years and by design we pride ourselves in taking an active, hands on and personal approach with each client. With each live or online auction, we meet with our clients and strategize on how to achieve the best outcome. Whether it is a live auction, live with simulcast bidding, online only or sealed bids, we strive to help our clients get top dollar for their assets.
