Matthew S. Hurley, founder and president of Hurley Auctions in Greencastle, PA, has been a successful auctioneer, appraiser, and broker since 1996. He realized his passion for the business when he was just five years old.
Some boys dream of becoming a policeman or a firefighter when they grow up, but Matthew Hurley had his sights set on being an auctioneer. Not only did his boyhood dream become a reality, but his devotion has allowed him to reach several milestones in his profession. In 2016 the Pennsylvania Auctioneers Association named Hurley as Auctioneer of the Year at its 68th Annual Conference in Harrisburg, beating out over 3,000 auctioneers. The winner was selected by statewide peers based on leadership, high ethical standards, a willingness to share with others, participation in community affairs and outstanding contributions to the PAA and the auction profession.
He has also received the title of Pennsylvania State Champion Auctioneer as well as the highest honor awarded to bid callers in both Pennsylvania’s "Champion of Champions" and Florida’s “Sunshine State Bid Calling Champion”.
