I have worked for Luther Brookdale Chrysler for just under two years. I was born and raised in Alaska, then lived in Oregon for about 12 years. I have been in Minnesota about five years and I live in New Hope. I own a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, and a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport. My first vehicle was a 2 door Wrangler Sahara with a 5-speed manual. I loved the 4×4 capabilities, considering I had two canyons to go through. I am expert level for Mopar, Jeep and Uconnect. My hobbies are mainly working on my rambler style house, and going out with my 2 dogs to parks and rivers for swimming and fun.
I have worked for Luther for over 4 years now. I started out as the receptionist and switched to sales about 1 ½ years ago. I love helping customers find the vehicle that fits their needs. I love baking, and every Monday I bring in treats for my coworkers. We own three vehicles: a Ram, a Pacifica, and my summer car, a Chrysler 200 convertible.
What I’ve learned in the car business is understanding the individuals needs to provide a great relationship with each customer to keep them happy and coming back to me for their future vehicle needs. Selling cars isn’t hard at all, its simply treating the guest as if they were a close relative or loved one. My greatest joy is to see that I have kept the customer happy and also learned something from each individual I sit in front of. My dad always told me integrity will take you a long way and that’s my promise to each and every person that my job is to help help help not sell sell sell.
I’ve only been in the auto business a short time but in that time a I have been able to consistently be a top performer in sales and customer satisfaction by listening to my customers and helping them select the proper vehicle with minimal stress. It would be my pleasure to assist you in your next purchase.
Buying a vehicle should not be hard! The simple act of listening to you about your vehicle needs, budget and lifestyle will help me find a vehicle that is just what you are looking for. No pressure, no gimmicks, just a transparent process that I can walk you through and in the end, you can leave with the car that fits your wants and needs. I look forward to meeting you! Mike
I have spent the past 10 years in vehicle retail, 8 years in the business office. My passions are music and motorsports. I currently own a 2018 Durango RT and a 2016 Challenger Hellcat. I was born in California but grew up in Northeast Minneapolis. I joined the US Navy out of high school, served the greatest country on the planet, spent some time in healthcare then eventually the auto industry. I can say that the car business is the most fun (job) I have ever had. We sell 800 HP cars, Jeeps, and sweet minivans with DVD’s in the headrests! You can’t beat that!!
