Dan Dotson and Laura Dotson

Fast-talking auctioneers, both Dan and his wife Laura are MCs, conducting 1,500 auctions a year together.

Hailing from a long line of auctioneers who date back to the 1940's, Dan has been performing auctions since he was 11 years old.

He and Laura run American Auctioneers, a company whose profits are based on percentages of the bids. Having been in the business for 37 years, Dan takes pride in his heirloom “auction chant” (the auctioneer’s rhythm of speech), which he has taught Laura.
