"Phenomenal experience "
Recently my car was not operating at optimal efficiency and I felt like at some point it would effect my job in which I am on the road a decent amount. I originally was referred to De Paula and Patrick by a friend of mine, who said they had an experience with him that they haven’t received at any other point in their car purchasing experience. I actually went to another Chevrolet dealership in the area because there was a model I really liked that they had. After visiting the dealership and attempting to make a deal I felt like I was almost being hustled. Although I wanted a new car ASAP I managed to leave without a purchase and the next day went down to De Paula and was in contact with Patrick. Although he seemed to be a fresh, young face in the car industry, he opened my eyes to what a real car buying experience should be like. He didn’t even begin to talk about any of the vehicles, he just started off by figuring out what was important to me. We ended up finding a 2018 used Malibu that Had everything I wanted, but was also the perfect car for my job. Now I know why I received the referral and will without a doubt be referring my friends and family to Patrick, as well as buying my next car from him.
"Best experience at a dealership ever"
My whole world fell apart a few weeks ago when another car recklessly crashed into mine and completely totaled it. Being young and just starting out like most I don’t have a ton of disposable income and owed more then my car was worth so I had no trade in or much money to put down towards a new vehicle. I needed something affordable but still wanted all the options. After hours of searching online sites and talking to not so friendly and down right sketchy other salesman from other dealerships I found some really amazing deals at Depaula Chevrolet’s website. I was really stressed out and frustrated and tired of looking at cars but figured I’d go to one more place before I just really gave up. As soon as I walked into DePaula I was greeted by the Sales Manager who I later found out was Patrick’s brother and he had Patrick down to help us out. Right away my anxiety and frustration was at ease as he seemed to be more interested in hearing what I wanted and needed rather then what he wanted to sell me. Also when I told him my budget he wasn’t intimidated and was sure he could find something that would work for me. It was late so I only had time to test drive one sedan that I didn’t care for it was too small for me. I told Patrick I would come back and he made himself available for whenever my schedule would allow. When I returned a few days later he had the other car we had discussed ready and waiting for me. It was good but I still wasn’t 100% sold. He told me he would show me every car on the lot if needed and when I mentioned a Chevy Equinox I had seen he pulled that right over! As soon as I got I’m I knew that was my car and being an avid fisher and outdoors person it was exactly what I needed! He remembered everything I told him about what I needed and help me find the best fit for me. I have never had a better experience at a delearship and with a salesman. Patrick is an outstanding representation of what the perfect salesman should be. I will be back when I can afford the Chevy Silverado of my dreams. Thank you Patrick!
Patrick was very helpful professional and a great salesman. He guided me through the process of buying my new car. He was a delight to work with.
Another great experience with the buying and delivery of a car, they made the process easy, efficient, and explained the car fully at dekivery and were ready for me when I arrived.
"Not just a salesman, becomes a trustworthy friend"
I am not a patient person, & not trusting. All salesman are alike. Well not with Damien. He said be patient and trust him. Yes hesitant at first. But he was fun, real and no bull. He worked it & listened to me. It was about me, not him. Always checked in with me while I decided what to do. Never pushy. And he became trustworthy, became my friend and my salesman for life. You know what you want & he makes it happen, miracles, lol. I am thankful for bringing him to me. Thank you DePaula Chevrolet
"Would recommend to everyone!!!!"
Professional and helpful!!! Extremely supportive!!!! I was very impressed at how quickly Patrick got back to me when I had a question, he went above and beyond to make me comfortable with the whole process.
