Welcome to Moore's Hillje Auction


We are a family owned, full service auction company.  Our story began over 20 years ago, when our founder caught the "auction bug".  James Moore was a Teacher and Coach by profession and a collector at heart.  Upon his retirement from coaching, he needed something to feed his competitive spirit, so a new game began.  He would spend each weekend checking out garage sales, flea markets, auctions, etc for his deals -- you see the game was "how little can you pay and how much can you sell it for?".  We have laughed about his planning trips around yard sales, and every vacation he came home with much more than he left with.  So in 1996, when the previous owners of Hillje Auction decided to sell, James jumped into the ring.  He was the face of Moore's Hillje Auction for over 18 years and truly enjoyed the years he spent as an auctioneer and the friends he met along the way.  Upon his death in 2014, Moore's Hillje Auction was left without an auctioneer, prompting James and Maxine's oldest son, Kirk, to obtain his license, in order to continue the family business. 
Maxine, Kirk, and the Moore Family have continued to conduct business in the same spirit as James ---- Honesty is always the best policy.  We strive to have happy clients, whether consignors or buyers, and to provide  everyone with a enjoyable auction experience.  Moore's Hillje Auction hopes to continue serving the Coastal Bend area for years to come.

We're Back!

Howdy Auction Friends and Family!  We have been rather quiet over the past several weeks, but not without good reason.  Some of you may know that Maxine had been dealing with some heart issues over the summer.  After trying several options to settle her heart rate, the decision was made to insert a defibrillator/pacemaker to help regulate her heartbeat.  This was done at the beginning of October and she has been on restricted activity since that time.  The timing of this procedure, combined with Kirk being in the middle of football season has proved to be challenging in getting an auction ready.  Trust us - we have plenty of stuff to sell, just not enough time to get it together!  That being said - we have FINALLY got this one together!  So - opening tonight and running through November 18, 2020 we present MAXINE'S BIRTHDAY BLOWOUT SALE! (her birthday was in October so maybe it should read Belated Birthday Blowout) but anyway.  Check it out at the link below and keep checking back because I still have lots to enter -- This is a good one!
