Mishler Auction Service
Since 1944 Mishler Auction Service has been conducting auctions in western PA for over sixty years. Merle started auctioneering at the age of fourteen. The initial intrigue was sparked by attending local auctions with his father. Those auctions were conducted by two auctioneers, both eighty-year veterans, Leslie Holsopple and Dave Marteeny. What began as a whole lot of practicing around the hundred and twenty-five acre dairy farm, turned into a community-wide "pretend auction." Merle sold all of the family possessions, livestock, equipment, and grain. After hearing the buzz of the mock event, Marteeny took the opportunity to put Merle on the stand at the next auction. He was quoted as saying, "That's the loosest tongue I've ever heard." So it became a popular site in Cambria and Somerset County to see the eighty-year old and this fourteen-year old in action. Establishing the reputation of being honest and obtaining top prices, was the key to the longevity and success of the organization. Through the years, Mishler and Shetler, Mishler and Claycomb, Mishler and son, and the present-day Mishler and Associates are as entertaining as they are respected as professionals. Merle has been voted "Simply The Best" auctioneer every year that the category was voted on since it's inception in the Johnstown Tribune Democrat.
