Back Story :
The Journey of LL Auctions
In 2004, Lisa laid the foundation of LL Auctions, nurturing it with dedication and vision. Fast forward to 2016, a pivotal year marked by a unique opportunity brought to us by a good friend and mentor, Chuck Gussler. Seeing a perfect fit, Chuck recommended that James take over the reins of LL Auctions.
James and Kristine prayed if buying LL Auctions would be best for them and their future.A moment of clarity came during a road trip to a wedding, as an Andy Stanley sermon resonated with them, providing the peace and reassurance they needed to move forward with LL Auctions.
Now, as we stand in 2023, we look back at seven fruitful years and over 400 successful auctions. LL Auctions has flourished—growing, relocating, and expanding in ways we had only imagined. We’ve streamlined our processes, widened our reach, and have more exciting plans on the horizon.
We owe a heartfelt thank you to our loyal customers and consignors who have been instrumental in our journey. Your trust and support fuel our motivation to maintain a business rooted in integrity and transparency. We’re here to make your buying and selling experience easy and confident, ensuring that choosing LL Auctions is always the right decision.
Who Started It All
James graduated from Texas Auction Academy in Dallas, TX and Texas A&M Maritime Academy. He is a license ship captain, but has hung up his captain's hat for the exciting life of auctions. James and his wife, Kristine, took over the reins of LL Auctions from former owner Lisa Gay with the core values in business of integrity and giving 110%. James's joy for entrepreneurship started at a young age of only six with selling pecans he cracked himself and convincing his middle school friends how necessary it was to buy one of his locks for their lockers. He then went on to excel at buying, remodeling and selling Cars, Trucks, Boats and Motorcycles for profit. Together, James and Kristine are building a legacy to pass on to their two children, who you recognize from LL Auctions’ Facebook and Instagram pages. In every chapter of his journey, James’s heart has been anchored in the reliance on God, the thrill of opportunity, and the fulfillment found in each entrepreneurial voyage.
Kristine is James’ wife, mom to Graycen & Laurel, Co-owner and is all-things-behind the scenes at LL Auctions. She received her Doctorate in Pharmacy from the University of Texas in Austin College and was recognized for her international efforts through the Excellence in Patient Care award. Those international efforts started as 25+ Medical Mission trips in college which later developed into founding her own 501c3 nonprofit, Be the Change Global Outreach, Inc.(BTC). BTC provided free medical and dental care to the Philippines and Myanmar through medical missions and a full time diabetes clinic in the town she was born in the Philippines. However, the tides of time, marked by the global sweep of COVID and the joyous arrival of her children, prompted a pause in operations. She works part time as a pharmacist and is constantly learning how to wear many hats in life (marketing, business management, accounting, etc.) She is not afraid to dive into the unknowns in life because she knows God is guiding every step. She has traveled all 7 continents, cherishes time with her husband & kids, loves listening to audiobooks, thrift shopping & traveling.
The Original Founder, Lisa Gay, a graduate of Southeastern School of Auctioneering in South Carolina and holds Texas Auctioneer License. She serves on the Board of Directions as Texas Auctioneers Association President (the female President in the 52-year history of the Association) and is an active member of the National Auctioneers Association, serving on the "Auctioneer" Magazine editorial board.
