Never been more pleased

Sam is a stand up guy and this is my story:
My name is Christopher Reed and I have been dealing with crappy used cars for almost a decade. The reason you may ask for this is bad decisions in my younger days. Back in 2010, I had to file Bankruptcy and the car that I had a loan for was repossessed. This as you can imagine has made getting a good, reliable car difficult. Because of that I had given up on having something decent and that meant that I was relegated to purchasing “beaters with heaters” that were just as good as the couple hundred bucks in my pocket could purchase. This cycle of buying a crappy car and driving it until it died or I couldn't justify working on it anymore has been a constant headache for almost a decade...until a couple of weeks ago. My brother tells me that he knows a car salesmen that he actually trusts to be fair and honest and can probably help get me financed so that I can get a good, dependable vehicle. I laughed at my brother and told him that no one would finance me for a car that I would actually want and could believe would be a reliable vehicle. After some more “brotherly” back and forth banter, I decided I would at least go down to the lot and see what was available and hear Sam out. So I show up, look at a couple of cars, and meet Sam. Sam was open, friendly, reassuring, and actually listened to my concerns about why I didn't think I could get financed for anything nice. He then proceeded to actually sit there and run some numbers with me based off of what I believed my credit to be and what I believed I could reasonably afford: not any of the back and forth to the back to talk to his “manager” to see if he could come up with better numbers, just a straight and honest back and forth that I greatly appreciated after so many bad experiences with car lots trying to play their games. He then proceeded print off a purchase order for the car that i had decided I wanted to buy and handed me a business card for a local credit union and told me and told me to go talk to them and that this particular outfit had had great success in financing people with concerns like mine. He didn't give me and ot the “this bank will give you this rate or this bank will give you this rigmarole,” he just told me who to go talk to people that could best help me with my situation. I listened to his advice and proceeded to have the best banking experience of my life (and I am now switching all of my accounts to this particular credit union) and got financed for a car that I actually fell in love with and wanted; not my second, third, or fourth choice….the one that I actually wanted. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a high quality used vehicle.
TLDR version: Sam is a straight up guy that helped me get a car that I didn't think it was possible for me to get and gave me the single most pleasant car buying experience that I have had in 35 years. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
