"Melissa deserves 10 stars if I could give that many?"
My story, sad but true, about a gal named....sorry, got off track. Aynyway what was sad is that I responded with my email, zip code, phone # and other contact info on a few web sites and was continually spammed from dealers even outstate ones. Big mistake, I was vetting many crossovers, and finally got my list down to a Lincoln MKC, or an Infiniti QX 60.
I briefly looked at the Mazda CX-5. Mellisa Garvey did not pressure me, and out of all of the sales people, manages, etc., from a huge # of dealers, I had to stop the noise, and deal with one person. This after she nudged me to look at option packages for the CX-5. With her help I finally settled on the Grand Touring model with the premium package. She was perfect in her timing, approach, knowledge, and on and on.
No other rep came even close to her style and approach. I retired as a co chairman of the Mpls office of AJ Gallagher & Co. They purchased my Commercial P & C Agency, the Towle Agency, for my extensive book of commercial real estate accounts, which included multi million $ commercial property's located all over the US, and most all of my clients were large banks, property managers, foreign owners of US commercial real estate, etc. My largest clients included JP Morgan Chase, the Royal Family of Dubai, UBS bank, Citibank, etc. I built this portfolio myself, and spent about one week a month servicing my clients in NYC.
I mention this to add credence to Mellisa's ability to sell cars, through her natural saleswomanship to gain clients trust, like mine. I've been in sales all my life, and knowledge, approach, sales skills, personality, all in good measure, result in trust, and that ultimately seals the deal.
She's a keeper! Don't lose her. Garvey Auto may some day compete with the likes of Luther, Morries, and the other mega dealerships in the Twin City area.
Anyway, thanks Mellisa, love the car, and finally have a trusted auto specialist to rely on during the balance of my life on this planet.
p.s. BTW, i insured Brookdale Shopping Center for a number of years, when it was managed by Shearson, Leaman, Hutton. Remember them?
