Blessed Beyond Belief!!!

I am one of those who will search the world over seeking an amazing deal on an automobile to the extent that I have no problem purchasing an airline ticket and traveling across country to find the right vehicle.
Living in lower northern Michigan it is hard to find anything that has not been consumed by rust, so bringing one back from the lower states benefits me.
Usually I purchase my vehicles from private parties, so when I came across the perfect vehicle and found it at Dream Car Chicago I was a bit skeptical, at first.
As a teen I quickly learned if you want to know whether or not an automobile was cared for, or anything for that matter, invest time into getting to know the person selling more than the vehicle. For me, character of the soon to be previous owner was, and is, the most important part of any sell.
I called Dream Car Chicago and before asking much about the vehicle I spoke with Erick and got to know him. It did not take long before I found myself laughing and joking with him. He made me feel comfortable as he told me about Dream Car Chicago , how it began, and how much care they invest into each vehicle they purchase and sell.
After a good while, of “soft” negotiations, we came to an agreement. This is not a normal way to deal, but again, Dream Car Chicago and all their family and family like constituents are not in the business of selling just cars, they truly want you to have your dream—car.
Long-story-short, a friend and I drove to Chicago, finalized the deal and left—after a much enjoyed time meeting everyone. Once home, the first thing I do is to bring it to a dealership and have everything possible on a preventative basis done to it. The dealership stated that it was one of the cleanest cars they have ever seen. This from another dealership is one more feather in Dream Car Chicago cap in my opinion.
After investing several hundred dollars getting her prepared for a long life with my wife and me, I drove home, handed the keys to my wife who was on her way to a ladies meeting at the church. On her way home she hit a deer. Yes, it was totaled. ¿¿After weeks of estimations and conversations with my insurance company, we agreed on a payoff. I MADE $2000.00 after all was said and done.
The moral of the story is that Dream Car Chicago knew what they had, yet chose to sell it, sharing the good deal they received—a far cry from most any dealership I have EVER dealt with in the past.
Dream Car Chicago, and everyone I met, is one of the most character-based, morally rewarding establishments I have dealt with. I am so grateful for the time and effort they take to make sure they, and us as customers, receive the deal, care, kindness, and time we all deserve.
Thank you, Erick and Dream Car Chicago, for making me a believer that chivalry has not yet gone to the wayside.
If you choose to go there, ask for Erick. Tell him Rodney sent ya, please! There is a “birddog fee” that does not affect your purchase price.
And please know, it has absolutely nothing to do with this review. My word is my life…literally.
