Early Life and Education
In 1988 she became a professional auctioneer, and several years later met her future husband Dan; apparently, she was at one of his numerous auctions looking to buy some restaurant material, and since then started working together, and also fell in love. Joining Dan in his American Auctioneers company, Laura soon launched the company to new heights and gradually increased the number of successful operations. Laura has also set-up the StorageAuctions.net website, that offers self-storage auction listings in the US and Canada. Dotson’s company is handling over 3,000 auctions and appraisals per year, which has certainly helped to increase her net worth. Thanks to that success, Laura and Dan were chosen as cast members of the new A&E reality series “Storage Wars”.
