The Net Worth of Ursula Stolf
How rich is Ursula Stolf? As of late-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $800,000, earned largely through a successful career on television, and through her storage container buying business. As she continues these endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
While Ursula was born in Toronto, she grew up in nearby Rexdale as her family moved there. She is the second youngest of four siblings, all of whom are women, however, her parents divorced sometime after the move as her father was dealing with a lot of personal issues. She mentioned that it was good that their parents divorced, as her father had some violent tendencies. After separating, her mother and the children moved to a housing commission apartment, experiencing some difficulties with the house, especially since it had only one bathroom. Seeing her mother struggle with jobs as she didn’t have higher education, Ursula wanted to pursue something better for herself. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled into Niagara College to complete her bachelor’s degree. After graduating, she then took up a master’s degree in Education at Mount St. Vincent’s University, and hoping to further increase her education, she then enrolled into York University, getting a second degree in Sociology, and took further post-graduate studies, completing a degree in human resources.
After completing her various educational pursuits, Stolf then discovered a great financial opportunity with storage containers. In various parts of the world, rented storage containers are auctioned off if they are not paid for after a certain period of time. Viewers are allowed to view the contents of the storage from outside, and not touch anything, but hoping to make a correct assessment of the value inside the lockers. The locker is sold to the highest bidder and the contents are then sold, hopefully for a profit. She started her own business called Ursula’s Locker Loot, her own store in downtown Toronto, and establishing a website which sold some of her finds.

Eventually, she was noticed by television producers who invited her to become a part of the first international spin-off of “Storage Wars”, called “Storage Wars: Canada”. The show focuses on people who make a business out of buying the contents of unpaid storage lockers, and making a profit from the contents. The prospect is very attractive for many, as one never truly knows the value of what he/she gets until a proper inspection of the locker is made. For other contents of value unknown to the buyers, they usually consult with experts to help with appraisals.
Storage Wars: Canada
The Canada version of “Storage Wars” started airing in 2013 at the OLN network, focusing on a set group of buyers who are business rivals of one another, and also started airing in the US under the title “Storage Wars: Northern Treasures”. Most of the cast members have associated titles, with Ursula called “The Knock Out” due to her capability of finding knockout prizes in her storage container units. She is proclaimed as the most educated among her competitors, but is still often dismissed by her fellow competitors, not thinking that she is a serious threat.
Other members of the show include Roy Dirnbeck, Cindy Hayden and Paul Kenny, and the cast is boosted by auctioneer Don Reinhart who has 48 years of experience, and Martin Yap who is the narrator of the show. Ursula stayed with the show for most of its entire run of two years, and afterwards continued to find success with her storage business and luxury store. She also tried her hand at acting, having an uncredited role in the television show called “Flix Software”.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Stolf is married – according to her, she’s known her husband since they were in school grade 10, and started their relationship young. However, they didn’t decide to get married until they reached their mid-20s. She’s mentioned that she doesn’t like alcohol, and had her first taste of it just before matriculating, got extremely drunk, and hasn’t touched alcohol since, as she didn’t like the way it made her feel the next day. She also mentioned that one of her goals is to be able to complete a PhD.
Similar to numerous television personalities, Ursula is highly active online through various accounts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, on which she still promotes her appearances in “Storage Wars”. She also continues to run her online business, and physical store. She has a lot of personal photos and videos online, appearing with family members as well as friends. She has a lot of fans and followers, online many of whom also admire her physical attractiveness. Aside from her personal Facebook account, her store also has an online account, displaying items for sale.
