Jimmy began his career as an auctioneer in 1974 but his interest in being an auctioneer goes back to his childhood; he always wanted to sell things at an auction sale.I've never attended a school to become auctioneer,? Jimmy said with a smile, "I?ve always wanted to do it and it began as a hobby. I just kind of picked it up." Jimmy received the Virginia State Auctioneering Championship in 1981 competing against 23 experienced auctioneers.Prior to beginning his own company, Jimmy had 16 years auctioneering experience with Ownby Auction Company, Richmond; Bradner Auction Company, Keysville; R.B.

Shelton Auction Company, South Boston.Carwile Auctions was started in 1988, backed by years of experience and offering competitive commission rates and personalized service in the auction of estates, real estate, antiques, households, farm equipment, etc.
