Scrappy and determined, this Long Beach native fights tooth and nail to keep his business alive. He might not have the deepest pockets in the auction game, but he has heart like no other, and is labelled as the “Underdog”.
He is the co-owner of the Now and Then Second Hand Store with his hard-nosed, sharp-tongued wife, Brandi. With Jarrod being more of a risk taker with his bidding, it is Brandi who questions his decisions, making sure Jarrod knows that money doesn’t grow on trees.
Whether it’s in the office or out at the auctions, Brandi will always state her case in their business. And with his business and family on the line at every auction, every bid is crucial.
“I have to turn around my scores quickly because they pay for the next auction. If I don’t flip the items, I can’t bid again.”
Though it may seem Brandi wears the pants in the family, Jarrod is no slacker. Easily fired up and sly as a fox, Jarrod is a master strategist and capable of playing head games with the best of them.
