Pretty good buying and service experience, so far.

Salesperson was reliable and returned calls. He helped with setup. The buying process and meeting with the closer took a few hours. She pulled out all the stops to get me to buy the extended warranty and paint protection. I declined, then suddently everything was half price, then I declined again and got a bit deeper discount. This is frustrating and I'd prefer to be quoted a fari price with 20% markup rather than offered something for 300% cost theny get it for a decent price only because I bargained and would not get ripped off.
Service department folks were nice. The waiting area is no frills, very different from the BMW dealership, but that's ok.
I shopped every Chevy/Buick/GMC dealer in the south sound from Kirkland to Mckenna in search of a Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon. I found several vehicles at different locations that fit my criteria, but didnt quite find the combination of price, financing, and trade allowance that compelled me to make a deal until I shopped at Gilchrist. I found better value and outstanding friendly, courteous, professional customer service working with Dave and Jeff and came away with the exact truck I wanted at the best price available. Funny, Gilchrist is the closest dealership to my house, I could have saved a lot of time had I visited there first. Satisfied that I found the best deal for me at Gilchrist. love my new truck!!!!
I was shopping for a new car online and comparing prices, and this dealer had the best price on what I was looking for. I stopped by early one morning to verify they actually had the car on the lot when I was greeted by Paul, who in no way was pushy and just wanted to see if I needed any help. I came back 2 days later to test drive, and working with Paul was great. He even helped get me into the color I wanted, which meant having the recall done by service before I could drive it, but that was fine. Everything went great, and I'm off in my new car in a couple days in the color I wanted.
Outstanding sales person award should go to Haley Botz . I saw one truck online and she pretty much had a deal together before I left for a 4 hour drive . She did so much work negotioting for me without even knowing if I would come buy the truck. Then when I got there I saw another truck that caught my eye , she was amazing with her attitude and went back to helping me with negotioting a fair price for us and her company . She has a way of creating a deal with out the" pushy sales pitch " because her attitude was amazing I would definitely go back and buy another vehicle from her .
We have purchased a new 2013 Cadilac CTS and a new 2017 Buick Envision from Brotherton over the past few years. We not only had great experiences, but we also made friends. Very honest and fair.
My Service Representative is Lindsey who is extremely professional. She set up my appointment and monitored my car throughout the service process, updating me throughout. Her excellent automotive knowledge made me feel comfortable that I brought my car to the right place. My car was taken in on time, and completed at the estimated time, including a car wash and vacuum. Thank you.
