As far as a favorite type of sale, David enjoys selling toys. "Selling toys, farm toys, that's a real interesting business. I think I like it so much because I have a genuine interest in it," he explained. However, whether or not the sale is loaded with toys really does not matter, David simply enjoys the business. He said, "The type of sale honestly doesn't make a difference, whether it's real estate or filled with $2.00 collectibles, they are all fun." Working with different people in the public everyday is what David likes the most. "I like dealing with people. Everyone looks at something different," he said. "It amazes me, every situation is different. There is no ho-hum with auctioneering, it's always changing." As far as the staff, David says Hundertmark Auction Service, as a whole is only the best because he works with the best. "Our friendly, experienced personalities make Hundertmark Auction the most qualified to handle your personal belongings and collections," firmly stated David.
