About the owner, Fred
As a child, many of those close to me considered me to be a car buff. What started with a fascination of Matchbox cars later developed into a career in the automotive industry. In high school, I worked for a local dealership in the service department with the desire to go into automotive sales, but management prevented me due to my age.
Determined, I left the auto shop for a sales role at another dealership. After one month, I returned to my previous dealership with invoices for the cars I sold – I was immediately hired as a sales consultant. At the end of my first year, I was both the youngest and top salesman at the dealership – earning the Gold Master Sales Award with Buick Motor Division.
I soon left the industry to help grow a family business. Years later, after developing strong relationships in the community, I returned to the automotive industry. This time, however, I went into business for myself.
I have always viewed myself as an honest person. As a boy scout, I was instilled with life skills that proved to be critical to both my development and character. My dad was a significant role model and truly displayed passion for his work. His customers adored him for his work ethics and integrity, and I grew up wanting to emulate the traits that made him successful with both business and people.
The auto sales profession has changed dramatically since I first started. As time progresses, the traditional trips to the dealership become less common, and online auto searches is defining the norm. While our approach centers highly on the traditional model – it differs in a variety of ways.
I let all my customers interact with the purchasing process from “soup to nuts” and have full disclosure, removing all of the unwanted pressures and fees that are associated with other establishments. Our flat fee approach is not only ethical, but puts the customer (for once) in the drivers seat. Come by and see what it’s all about.
