I am an attorney by profession and have my own practice so I did not have time to visit numerous dealerships and spend my valuable time which is a very scarce commodity in my line of work. So I sent emails to all my local area dealers in Washington D.C. and Baltimore metro area. I was shopping for a specific model with certain options and wanted to pay an amount I had budgeted for and no more. Initially, I contacted all the Washington D.C. and Baltimore metro area dealers. Even though I was very direct and to the point in stating my needs I was given the run around on pricing where they kept going back and forth on the telephone followed by “when are you coming to our dealership to test drive a car and we can put you in one”. It was almost as if they did not hear what I was saying, “give me a price that I can hang my hat on!”. Next, I would receive verbal prices or vague prices in an email that were within my budget but could not get these metropolitan area dealers to confirm these prices in writing in a buyers order. Finally, quite frustrated I expanded my search and decided to contact dealers 150 miles north and south of where I live. Doing this led me to discover Mercedes Benz of Hagerstown. In retrospect, I am glad I had not given up on my search for my car. I spoke to Mr. Richard Paden on a Saturday afternoon and had finalized the price on a particular car by that evening and received a signed buyers order. Of course later on that weekend I looked at the dealership inventory and liked another car with more options. So the following Monday I spoke to Mr. Paden and asked him if I could purchase this other new car in their stock for a specific price. Mr. Paden called me back in five minutes and gave me a purchase price very close to my offer which he confirmed in an email. I really liked the fact that Mr. Paden understood that I knew what I wanted and did not keep going back and forth on pricing. He understood without my stating that if they could sell me close to my budget I would buy the car right away. As I live in southern Maryland getting to the dealership was an issue. Mr. Paden solved this and said he would have a driver pick me up on the day of delivery. I was really overwhelmed by this exceptional service that truly went beyond what is expected. I ordered the car on a Saturday, changed my mind and switched to another car on Monday with no problem and picked up my new car on Tuesday. Working with Mr. Paden and Mr. Austin Shemon (finance and insurance manager) was a breeze and a true pleasure. The best part was Mr. Paden and Mr. Shemon had my paperwork ready for review and signature on the day of delivery so I spent my time very efficiently and was done with the purchase formalities in a short time and on my way home. Did I mention that both Mr. Paden and another young gentleman by the name of Adam spent their precious time helping me understand how to work the various features in my new car. I recommend this dealership very highly and definitely would recommend them to my friends and family. Furthermore, if you reading this review and are a potential customer please definitely contact this dealership because they will surprise you very pleasantly. If you fail to contact them it will be a missed opportunity on your part that you will regret. Simply put if I gave you the winning lottery numbers for tomorrow you would buy that lottery ticket, right!. Dealing with this dealership equates to winning a lottery ticket. Internet and web with easy access to information has leveled the car market which makes selling a totally different game, a fact Mercedes Benz of Hagerstown understands, and this is reflected in their approach top down. A business that is in sync with the world today is easy to deal with and a pleasure to refer anytime. Mr. Paden, thank you for your terrific, fantastic and excellent service.
