Not ALL Bidders are Rude...
« on: November 10, 2011, 06:24:26 AM »
We did auctions in Central California, moved a few years ago to Texas and started doing them in the Dallas/Ft Worth areas the past year again. We know a lot of people do not want to give info out as far as finding auctions. We all also know that a newbie is treated pretty rude and gets all kinds of comments (said on the side and most of the time not to their faces), glaring looks etc. from SOME regulars. Well, we met one gentleman that surprisingly enough was very nice. At first we thought he was a BS'r because he was actually telling us a few places to look for local auctions but sure enough he was giving us good info. (We were doing a lot of searching on the internet and printing locations but still missing some.)  We saw him yesterday at a small auction and he told us again about a site that helps with finding auctions. We signed on and it has helped us a lot. We are not competitors with him since he buys for 3 stores and we buy mostly for smaller units.  But, I feel that's not why he helped us, I feel it's because he is a nice guy PERIOD! There are a few out there I guess.  :-\ That's my comment for the day, just wanted to share a good thing.  :D

I have been surprised how we have been treated as Nobs. It has really been good all around. Not all secrets are given out but the regulars treat us like we have been there for a long time. Could be we don't act crazy or like we are in front of a TV crew.. LOL I think a lot of how people treat you is how you act. So you must be pretty nice too.  ;D. We ran into what the regulars get mad about yesterday... bunch of people who have no idea what they are doing. People were Rude to the facility managers and the Auctioneer. I helped out a new guy the other day just a hobby guy.. He said his wife really wanted to come to one, by the end of the day he said I don't think she will like this. So not sure he will be back. He was really nice and so was I.  Good luck sounds like you are on the right tract.
