Buy here, pay here is the only thing sales professional Rico Brown has known during his 11-year career in car sales, so it only seems natural he is now the top salesperson for Chacon Autos, which has several stores in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and San Antonio, Texas.
King, Bill - October 2012
Monday, October 15, 2012
When Bill King was a sales manager at a large franchise dealership some time ago, he probably didn’t imagine he’d eventually decide to leave that position to work as a salesman, especially for employees he once managed at the car lot.
Langlois, Jacque - September 2012
Monday, September 17, 2012

Ramirez, Dave - May 2012
Monday, May 14, 2012
Dave Ramirez likes to stay busy, and maintaining his average of 18 vehicles a month while serving as a backup sales manager at Herbies Auto Sales in Greeley, Colo., certainly keeps him on the go.

Howell, Tim - December 2011
Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Nieves, Bob - November 2011
Monday, November 14, 2011
In his 30 years on the job, about the only thing Bob Nieves hasn’t done is deliver a baby on a test drive. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but at times it must certainly seem that way.
Buckner, Jim - October 2011
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
How a person overcomes adversity says a lot about that person’s character. When Jim Buckner Jr., a top-notch salesperson at Lithia Toyota of Abilene, wasn’t chosen for a finance manager position he applied for back in January 2011, he could have reacted a number of ways. He chose to recommit himself to his sales job and take it to the next level.

“Professional” is the word that best describes Ron Ouk, according to Rich Sargent, owner of Rich’s Car Corner, an independent dealership in Shoreline, Wash. “If he’s having a bad day … or he doesn’t feel too well, that doesn’t change how he sells cars. He’s going to give it 100 percent, 100 percent of the time,” said Sargent.
Brown, Leonard - August 2011
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
From franchise lots to buy here pay here, it’s safe to say Leonard Brown knows his way around the retail automotive business.
