Excellent expereince! (Arash Sadraee)
November 5, 2018
I don't usually take the time to write reviews for anything, yet my genuine appreciation compels me to write one on this occasion. I recently made a lifelong dream come true and purchased my first Porsche (911.2) from Arash Sadraee at Porsche of Arlington. As I anxiously await delivery in June, I am reminded that this has been the best car buying experience I've ever had. From the first day we met, he was not pushy at all — which was hugely important to me. He actually listened to what I had to say and only gave thoughtful feedback. Arash genuinely understood that I only wanted to buy a Porsche if it was going to be a precise build with all of the options that I wanted and at a great price. He didn't keep trying to push a car he had in inventory on me over and over again like other dealerships typically try to do. We must have gone on at least six or seven test drives. Each time I'd pop in unannounced, he was genuinely happy to see me! After I had placed the order, I asked him to test drive with my wife with only a few hours notice. He was not only accommodating, but truly ecstatic to meet her and show her all of the cool things the car I had ordered came with. It’s almost as if he was as excited for me as I was for myself. Speaking of test drives, his test route is an experience itself! A couple of times before the final purchase, I'd stop in without telling him, just to check a few things out without bothering him. I thought he might get upset if I took up any more of his time without placing an order, but that wasn't the case at all. He'd jump out of the dealership with a big smile and urge me to test drive it again. He'd ask me about what new information I had picked up from the blogs and was always happy to compare notes. I would politely tell him that I was close to buying but not on that day and that I didn't want to waste any more of his time. He'd reassure me that I had never wasted any of his time at that if it was about something I cared about, then he cared about it as well. I couldn't believe I had found a salesman who loved talking about Porsches as much as I did. Arash was very knowledgeable about all of the Porsche models and never gave me an answer he wasn't 100% sure of. We'd look up anything we both had questions about together or he'd run and grab someone (like someone in service or his floor partner Chris Dunham) who he thought may be able to help. On the day I was ready to buy, he went and grabbed his GM Sami, who turned out to be a terrific guy, and got me the greatest deal on both my Porsche order and my trade. They negotiated a significantly better deal than I was told would be the best deal on the Porsche forums, or the offers I got from other salesman at nearby Porsche dealerships. Arash Sadraee made everything fun and amazing from start to finish and I urge anyone who wants to buy a Porsche to see him at Porsche of Arlington.
