Testimonial from Carole Goodman

Carole Goodman
Bridgton, ME

Tim helped me get a much $$$$ better deal.

I hired Tim and he spent time with me and listened to my needs. He began to educate me, but then took it further...He helped me find the car I fell in love with and then helped me negotiate with that dealership. He told me he may be able to get a better deal, but it will take a little more time.

While I was waiting, Tim called around to other dealerships that sold that brand. Within a day, he found the car I was looking for and got a much $$$$ better deal.

  Thank you Tim for:

  1st. The education

  2nd. Putting in the time and effort

  3rd. Getting me a better deal.
