The “First Lady” of Auctioneering

COOKIE LOCKHART IS ALL ABOUT SUCCESS OF AUCTIONS! Cookie was the first woman ever to be inducted into the Colorado Auctioneers Hall of Fame (2002) AND the first woman ever inducted into the National Auctioneers’ Hall of Fame (2007) — her proudest accomplishments to-date!   Cookie is recognized as “Auctioneering Royalty” and is quite flamboyant and captivating. Her diverse knowledge and expertise brings forth unequaled success to each and every auction she embraces.

Cookie is currently focusing on Colorado Auctions, selling estate, real estate and fund-raising auctions. In the past, she has sold several millions of dollar auctions for businesses, banks and private parties including a liquidation of a multi-million dollar oil company involving auctions in 22 states taking 3 years for completion. She has been featured as a guest auctioneer at numerous auctions for Registered Livestock, Big Equipment, Real Estate and Fund Raisers in various states and has been publicized in multiple books and magazines, as well as appearing on various TV shows and making radio commercials. 

Cookie travels the United States auctioning, speaking, inspiring auctioneer graduates at commencement, and helping with fundraising events, 4-H clubs, and rodeos. Cookie has been described as “A Rock Star in the Auction World” and “The First Lady of Auctioneering ”.  She has received many accolades and people are drawn to her big personality, sparkly demeanor and humble character.  Cookie’s trademark fashion (big) hats and (sparkly) glasses are as much a part of her as her distinctive voice. She says, “If you’re gonna wear glasses you might as well wear good sparkly ones!” and that hats have always been important in her family.

Cookie is one of the fortunate few who found a job which is also her passion-
and she sure is passionate about it! She has several mantras by which she lives, including:

When you make other people feel good, you feel good. You have to look successful to be successful … and you need to be dressed for the part.” Says the infamous Cookie Lockhart!
