“Helping dealers sell more cars and make more money has been my main focus over the years. I am a real car guy who gets it. I get a superb return on investment with their Internet sales, floor sales and marketing back to their owner base with their CRM and other marketing solutions. I am very aggressive in giving dealers real solutions to sell more cars, make more money and take care of their customers. People buy cars from people they like, that is what it is all about.”

correct process is put in place.”
