    IF you want to hear great bid calling, you should check out Wendy Hendrix Rierson, She is a Southern Auctioneer with deep roots in NC and someone should really do a story about her. She is of a Rare breed when it comes to getting the top dollar !! I hope someone discovers her soon for a story. She definatley deserves it !
