Derrell Brushaber Sales Manager

I started selling cars when I was 18 @ Toyota, most of that time in sales was spent in the internet department. From there I moved into finance, then the role of Sales Manager. My goal in each of those roles was to make things simple and easy for my clients. It may sound crazy, but I learned early on that if you treat people with respect and take care of them, you will see them again! After all, the best compliment possible is repeat or referral business. I was reluctant to leave Toyota because I loved the die-hard fanaticism and cult-like passion my clients had for the brand. Little did I know that Porsche owners are on a completely different level. Their passion and knowledge of the brand are unrivalled, and I couldn’t be any happier about it.
