I don’t usually write reviews, but this time I’m making an exception. I just closed a deal for a used Volkswagen GTI with John DeLoach of Village Cadillac in Homosassa, FL. The reason for the exception is that the experience was unbelievable, and I mean that in a good way. The process of buying cars, especially used cars, tends to be unpleasant at best, and at times can get to be downright brutal. I can remember the first used vehicle that I purchased; I had no idea what I was doing. Two veteran salesmen saw me coming from a mile away, grabbed their cudgels, and got to work. I paid for the beating that I received that day for years. I’ve come a long way since those days, which makes me appreciate the qualities that John DeLoach of Village Cadillac in Homosassa, FL brings to the table all the more. Outgoing and ever-genial, John was born to sell cars. He loves his job! He is himself a car enthusiast, so he knows his facts. He knows why the manufacturer has made certain decisions and what the implications of those decisions are for the buyer. Raised in a military family, John is respectful, patient, and astonishingly honest, almost to a fault. John has a pleasant demeanor, is quick to laugh, is never mean or biting, and never misses a beat if your behavior should slip a bit during negotiation. John realizes that your time is valuable and he doesn’t waste it. All of these qualities together made the negotiation for the GTI a pleasant experience, instead of the usual dread and loathing. When the deal was closed, I walked away pleased, not only with the final terms, but because of what John brings to the table, I actually enjoyed the process! Highly recommended!
