Kyle Dykes was born and raised in Killeen, Texas where he grew up on a small ranch. He became interested in auctioneering at a young age, for he often attended cattle sales with his grandfather. In 2011, just after his freshman year at Texas A&M, Kyle graduated from the Texas Auction Academy in Dallas, Texas. In June of 2013, Kyle won the Texas State Champion Rookie Auctioneer title at the annual Texas Auctioneers Association convention.

While working for the IBBA, Kyle also worked to grow his auction business, Kyle Dykes & Associates, LLC. In October of 2016, Kyle became a full time auctioneer and currently works weekly auto auctions across the state of Texas. In addition to auto auctions, Kyle enjoys working and conducting a wide variety of sales, including estate sales, livestock auctions, benefits, and consignment sales, to name a few. In May of 2017, Kyle was named the Texas State Champion Auctioneer at the Texas Auctioneers Association’s 60th annual convention.
