Dan Dotson Net Worth $5 Million
Dan Dotson was introduced to auctioneering at a young age; his grandfather Sam Fancher worked as a farm auctioneer, and Dan joined him in his ventures. Starting at the age of 11, his grandfather taught him how to act as an auctioneer, and for the next four years, the two held various auctions together, with Dan even missing school for more practical lessons. The basis of his net worth was established very early.
In 1983, Dan started his first business venture, American Auctioneers, which specializes in various areas of auctions, such as estates, business inventorie, and equipment, and also appraisals as well as fundraisers. Currently, American Auctioneers host two auctions per day, six days a week, which is the main source of Dan’s net worth.
Further to his success, during the 1990s, Dan also ran an auction house, which was focused on pottery, porcelain, furniture and dolls which were made available for auctioning. Taken together, all these different auctions have successfully sustained Dan, and vice versa, over 40 years of net worth growth.
In 2010, Dan was first introduced to the reality TV show “Storage Wars”, in which four buyers and their teams compete to buy storage units which are in default. Dan took over the show quickly as its lead auctioneer, alongside his wife Laura who frequently acts as the ringman, however, they often switch roles.
Dan`s diction as an auctioneer has been described as slurred multi-syllabic filler, which is rattled-off very quickly, as opposed to Laura`s as she tends to keep her auction chant at a slower pace. Since his first appearance in the show, his popularity has grown immensely, which eventually led to several media interviews, and also other TV appearances. He has been interviewed by magazines such as The Washington Post, TMZ, and USA Today, and regarding his TV appearances, he has been featured in “Fox And Friends”, “Hot In Cleveland”, “Sports Center” – in which he announced the best 50 sports plays of 2013 – and “The Home And Family Show”.
When it comes to his personal life, Dan has been married to Laura since 2000. The couple met in 1996, and she immediately became his business partner. However, there are no records of the couple having children or not. In 2014, Dan suffered a double brain aneurysm, and underwent major surgery, but has since recovered, recuperated and resumed his auctioneering activities.
