A breath of fresh air
November 6, 2018
It isn't often that I feel pleasantly surprised from the first moment that I meet a salesperson at a dealership until the end of the transaction, however this time it was even more than expected since I wasn't really buying a high dollar vehicle. You would never had known that fact, I would have thought there were another set of zeros on this transaction as I felt as I had bought one of their better cars.
I entered the lot at closing time, on New Year’s eve to look at a vehicle just traded in that didn't even have a complete profile of the website (or correct color), as Greg was leaving for the day (year), he circled around and asked if he could assist me, I queried as to if the car I had found was the one referenced on their ad, Greg wasn’t sure but he said he would look into it for me, and meet me at the office.
As I approached the office, after closing, his smiling face told me that it was the vehicle, I asked if he would mind getting the keys, I promised not to ask for a test drive, just wanted a better inspection. Greg obliged, brought the keys out and I checked it out. I told Greg I was interested and would contact him first thing Monday, in the meantime he was to schedule the vehicle for a safety check…
before the dealer opened on Monday, I was there to take it for a test drive, as I walked into the showroom, Greg greeted me, and stated he would get the keys, a few moments later, he pulled up to the door in the car of choice, threw a plate on it and asked if I was ready to go….Yup.
Greg directed me through a nice country drive to get a feel of the SUV, and as we completed the test, I asked him to find out what the final price would be, he went to the sales manager, came out and we agreed to the deal. Greg told me he would put the car through the safety check and recon and let me know when it would be available; another surprise, a few hours later it was available for pickup.
I came back at 4:30 (I will mention that Greg offered to bring the car to me, a 40-minute drive to assist me if I needed a ride), we did a walk-around of the vehicle, put my new plate on and we went over to the main office to finalize paperwork & payment…half an hour later I was ready to leave, however I chatted with my new friends a bit as it became a very comfortable atmosphere.
As I only interacted with the other staff briefly, I cannot attest to their capabilities, however all were pleasant & friendly as I walked through the dealership.
A take away for those who have read this to here, ask for Greg, he is professional, courteous, & thorough and your experience should turnout as terrific as mine.
