Meet The UBI Staff

Matt Johnston

Owner / Operator / Auctioneer

I grew up in Troy, MO and graduated in 1997 from Troy Buchanan High School. After working for the school district, I moved into sales and quickly found my love for it. I thrived in the car sales industry and then became one of the leading sales consultants for Waterway Carwash Company. From there I was the General Manager for a full-service car wash in West County/St. Louis. I have also been an active member and volunteer on the Lincoln County Fair Board for over 30 years.

I began my Auction career in 2010, graduating from The Missouri Auction School in 2011. I have worked alongside many other auctioneers in the Midwest area throughout the years and continue to do so, while operating my own auction house. U BOUGHT IT was established in 2017 and has been growing since.

UBI is the preferred auction service for a number of realtors throughout the St. Charles, St. Louis, and surrounding counties. Lastly, UBI is the preferred auction service for estate liquidation for Lutheran Senior Services.
