    I am a younger female who was looking to find a reliable car, that was in my price range, that had all my wants, and wasn't going to put me in the mechanics... everyday. Which I know sounds impossible. Sherece A. Mad six was absolutely the best sales rep I have ever encountered and I am so thankful I had her. She was so caring and understand towards my wants, needs, and price range. Not once did she try to pressure me into any thing nor did she try to get me to go "a little higher". She understand what I wanted. Not only did she act this way the first day, she continued searching for me after my first time there. Called me and emailed me asking me my preferences. The second time I went in, she had the exact car I wanted. Not only did she go out of her way to find me a car, she found one with exactly every little thing I wanted, low miles, just out of a lease, in my price range, etc. I could go on for days about how helpful Sherece is. She also reassured me about any mechanical problems and provided me with all information. My experience with buying the vehicle, the repair shop, facility everything was absolutely great. I don't think I will ever go anywhere else When I buy another car in the future 110% best believe I am going to find Sherece Maddix for my purchase because I would not be as happy and confident if it wasn't for her. Thank you Kia for an awesome experience, for once In my life I enjoyed buying a car and it was not stressful at all.

    Executive Kia truly makes it easy to purchase a car. I was returning my lease and did not want another lease or new car. I wanted to buy used and Mike... Crespo (who got me into the original leased Sportage) helped me. The type of car I was looking for was not available from Kia but he still went above and beyond to find the car I did want and the transition from leased to purchase went very smoothly. The Sportage was a nice car, but my circumstances just didn't warrant a car payment. I didn't feel super pressure to by Kia or get into another lease which was wonderful. He listened to what I wanted and went with that. Due to this, he got another sale from me and probably will in the future too!

    I had an excellent experience at Executive Kia! My 2015 Nissan Versa had a 112000 miles on it and a blown transmission and they gave a me very fair price... for it on trade. In addition to that they got me approved for a brand new 2020 Kia Forte even though my credit was less than favorable. I'd like to give a Special thanks to Ouafaa Kouhaila who was so helpful in getting me this new car! I highly recommend Executive Kia!

    Great team! I told Kristen that I wanted to speak with someone that will "make it happen". Rob and the team made it happen, through my worries, indecisiveness,... questions & not the best credit. We came home with a new car and overall...peace of mind. Thank you Rob, John, Joe and Kristen.
