Sales Consultant

How long have you been in the automotive industry?
Since 2012

What do you enjoy doing on your day off?
I enjoy being with my wife and kids (Shannon Benjamin & Reese Meghan). As a family, we enjoy going to parks and hiking, fishing, swimming and, playing sports.  

What can customers expect while working with you?
Customers can expect that I will have the knowledge to answer any of there questions.  They can also expect a relaxed, low key, and honest buying experience.  I like to go at the pace the customer is looking go.  Sometimes it takes time to make the right decision and I will be there to assist them in there buying process.  

What made you want to sell Toyota/Volvo over other manufacturers?
The thing I love the most about Toyota is they are always pushing to have the most advanced safety features.  That is the most important thing with purchasing a car truck or SUV.  I personally own Toyota's and I have never worried about putting my family in them.  Second, there quality and performance are never in question.  They last and last and you can own the same car for 15 years or more without repair after repair.  One other important factor that I love about Toyota is they will stand behind there product.  In the event something is wrong they step up and fix it.  

What is your favorite place to travel?
Rockwood Maine (Moose head lake region)
Luray Virigina  & OC NJ.    

What customers do you enjoy helping most?
I enjoy working with someone who is new to buying a car.  I like working with this type of person because I have the patience to show them multiple vehicles and not be pushy.  When you're buying a car it does not need to be a race.  Let's take the time together and figure this out.   

What is your favorite quote?
"Treat other people the way you want to be treated."
