The people at this dealership go above and beyond the call of duty to help me. The entire facility is top-notch. My best guy there is Gary Wright but... everyone does a good job.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this excellent review David!
Porsche Marin, formerly known as Sonnen Porsche, is truly the best place to get your Porsche. The whole buying experience is critical to me -- I don't... want to feel bad parting with my money, and one little misstep is all it takes to ruin the whole experience. After a few experiences with Porsche Marin, I can confidently say that I will not trust anyone else with my dreams. Now, having said all of this, it's worth noting that Brett Payne is my Porsche guy. Period. He is a die hard enthusiast, just like me, and is not a sales guy -- he operates more like an agent, in that he facilitates my transaction, he never "sells" me anything (I walk in already sold on what I want). His sense on building cars is impeccable, as well. He's often steered me away from bad (options) choices, or towards good options to add -- I know a lot about a lot, but it's hard to truly know everything. Brett makes it all easy for me. In terms of guys I've worked with or interacted with, there are many other top notch guys on the Sonnen team: Emil Rustamov (Finance Director), Bill Lamphere (General Manager), and Mr. Peter Sonnen himself. All are class acts. I'm heavily biased in that I've had many positive experiences at Porsche Marin. Hopefully yours are equally positive, but obviously like anything else in life, your mileage may vary. Drop Brett a note (his email is on their staff page on their website) and have him help you with your dream -- just don't be an annoying client, please! Otherwise, I'll regret recommending him. ;)
Always courteous, Kept me updated with respect to repairs. No complaints. They worked up all the air and codes and ultimately recommended a battery replacement... with no pressure.
Thank you for the great review!
The sales team, especially Stephen Poulden, makes it an experience to remember. They listen and get right to the point, but also take time to educate the... customer on the product and process of buying a Porsche. The finance guy, Emil Rustamov really knows how to make the customer feel at ease and get through the paperwork in record time. Thank you Sonnen Porsche
Car was no longer at the lot when I the dealer contacted me from the Cars.com email sent to them. In fact the car showed available on Cars.com for over... two weeks after that when it wasn't.
First class treatment all the way. Prompt reply to my online query, detailed information on the car, absolutely beautiful 997 in great shape. Good price...could... not have been easier.
Having spent sometime in the car business as a saleswomen and having bought many cars from dealerships, I know the business a little more than most. It... is not too often that one runs across a salesmen who has a high level of integrity, the depth and breadth of knowledge and a genuine desire to help in every way possible to accommodate a clients needs. I consider myself to be very fortunate to have found ALL of that and much more in Andrew Proaps. He is truly a one of a kind! I met him about 4 years ago when I walked into an Infiniti dealership. I had a ton of questions about the IPL I was considering buying. He had a ton of patience with me and never once did I feel the pressure "TO BUY NOW"!!!! I bought my car about 9 months later and I returned to him and ONLY him. Fast forward, I found out he was transferring over to Porsche so I called him up, took a test drive in a 2012 997 Turbo S and said "where do I sign"!!! I will follow Andrew wherever he goes and will buy my next car from him. I tease and say if you ever decide to leave Porsche,I hope you go to a Ferrari dealership and NOT a PRIUS - toy dealership. Andrew has a two little boys that he absolutely adores and a lovely wife. As I said, one of a kind! Thank you Andrew!! I am very grateful I found YOU!
It was nice to go back to Sonnen Porsche after they remodeled the Mill Valley facility. I was greeted warmly by familiar faces and the place looks great.... There is a new customer lounge for refreshments while I waited for my Boxster to get washed after a service. This dealership understands customer service and I will continue to send my friends there. The new building is spectacular, and what can I say about those cars. There is no substitute
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Sonnen Porsche. We appreciate your business, and are happy to hear you enjoy our the new remodel!
Initially, I went to the Sonnen location further North in San Rafael, not realizing that their original Porsche showroom (by Strawberry Village) had just... completed their remodel and re-opened the week before. I found the staff at what is now Sonnen's non-Porsche Used Car location very nice & helpful, even calling ahead to let the Sonnen Porsche dealership know that I was driving over, they told me to ask for Andrew, which I did. By the way, the newly remodeled Sonnen Porsche showroom is MUCH bigger than it used to be, easily housing maybe a dozen cars inside, it's very sleek, with clean & simple lines and materials, very German. When I arrived, I showed Andrew the car I saw online (on my phone). Andrew apologized & told me that that particular car had already sold, actually a couple of weeks earlier, and it somehow had not yet been taken down from their website. Unfortunate, yes, but in my mind that was surely out of his personal control. He offered to show me similar cars on the lot, and we walked around, took a couple out for test drives & talked about the differences between models, features, upgrade options, how the convertible worked, warranties, etc. - I had a zillion questions, which he patiently answered. I did find another car which I liked, took some pics and left to think it over. Within a 1/2 hour, Andrew sent me a text that it was a pleasure meeting me - and to let him know if I had any additional questions. I sent him a text back a couple hours later - and asked if I could put a down payment on the car that afternoon, to hold it while I headed out of town to work for the next week - that I wanted to pick it up when I returned the following weekend. Andrew said sure, they could make that work - so I drove back to the dealership to do the paperwork that afternoon. As I was admiring what would become my new baby out front before I went in to do the paperwork, a friendly man with a German accent asked if I was buying it and I said "Yes!". He very sincerely followed up with a "thank you for your business, I'm Mr. Sonnen" and shook my hand. I have to confess that I absolutely HATE buying cars and I have had some horrible previous experiences. That was not at all the case at Sonnen. The sales process was a breeze, everyone was super nice, sincere, patient, helpful. Even the financial/contract part was painless & pretty quick. Andrew paid awesome attention to the details - with near immediate follow up on my texts/calls/questions. Even AFTER the car was sold - when I asked how to order an after-market front license plate bracket/holder (via Parts), Andrew even made special arrangements so I could pick it up on a Sunday when the Parts Dept is closed - and later, when I texted him more questions about the phone/cable connectors in the console. My Sonnen Carrera GTS purchase was a GREAT buying experience - THANK YOU Andrew!
Wow thank you so much for taking the time to review our dealership on Cars.com. We appreciate your business, and enjoy that GTS - what a great car!!
I recently leased a Boxter S at Sonnen and was extremely pleased with the entire process and especially with Andrew. I have dealt with Andrew many times... in the past and he has always been terrific. He is very knowledgeable and fun person to work with. I was treated very well by everyone involved and I highly recommend this dealership!
We adore Andrew too! Congratulations on the Boxster S, and thank you for taking the time to review our store.
