Meet The UBI Staff

Matt Johnston

I am a full time auctioneer and owner at U Bought It. I grew up in Troy, Missouri. I am a graduate of Troy Buchanan High School Class of 1997. I have also worked for the school district before moving on to new car sales. I quickly found my love for sales and became a service consultant at water way car-wash where I soon became one of the best consultants in the company. I went on to be the General Manager of a full service car wash in west St Louis county. I have attended and graduated from The Missouri Auction School in the summer of 2013. I have been in the auction business since the summer of 2011. I am very well respected in the auction community, having sold near $400,000 in consignments in U Bought It’s first year in business. I like to hit the ground running with both feet, working day and night, to make my auctions the best in the Midwest for the buyers and the sellers!
