I like that show a lot.  Have you ever met anyone from that show?  If so, was it at a storage auction?  Do those people always hang out at storage auctions or is it all Hollywood made for TV?

Most of them are real buyers, although some were obviously cast for their looks or comedic value. I've met Dan & Laura Dotson (in Vegas), Bubba Smith (at a local auction), Lisa Lewis & the producers of SW Texas (at a taping.) I spent about an hour on the phone interviewing Dave Hester. Mike Braiotta is member of this forum. It's a small world.

It really is a small world.  You really have met and talked to quite a few of them.  Did you ask them for any tips or tricks?  If so, what did they tell you?

Actually, I've got a pretty good amount of experience as a high volume buyer/seller. None of them offered any advice, but I probably would have listened had Dan or Dave offered any interesting tidbits.
