09.12.13 by REELZ
After watching numerous episodes of the reality series Beverly Hills Pawn, it's clear that Yossi wants all of his customers to leave the Dina Collection feeling happy, whether they are buying, selling or pawning merchandise. He wants all the parties involved to feel like they made a good and fair deal. However it's also pretty clear that some customers have a knack for convincing the pawnbroker to pay a little bit more for an item. They may be few and far between, but every so often there is a client that gets the upper hand in negotiating with the master. By carefully studying these interactions, we've put together some tips to help anyone get the most money possible when selling an item to Yossi Dina.

Step 1: Be a beautiful woman. If you’re not a beautiful woman, find one who can broker the deal for you and give her this guide.
Step 1a: Wear an outfit that shows off your best feature.
Step 2: Invite Yossi to come to your home to see an amazing object that he'll be dying to own. Once he gets to your house, promise an invitation to your next party.
Step 3: Play dumb.
Step 4: Make sure he sees the item you're trying to sell, and tell him that you're not interested in selling that particular item. Show him a different item and insist that this other item is the one you called him over to see.
Step 5: Insist that the item he likes is really not for sale.
Step 6: Finally "give in" to his request to quote a price for the item in question, and ask for a fair price. Do your research ahead of time so that you know the value of the item.
Step 7: When Yossi asks "are you cwazy?" say "yes."
Step 8: Accept Yossi's offer, because at this point, he's surely offering the price you want.
That's how you get the best price possible from Yossi. To learn more bargaining tips and tricks, be sure to watch Beverly Hills Pawn Wednesdays at 9p ET/PT on REELZ.
