The Man Behind the Brand

Hi my name is Donald Prevost-Hart and I believe that one of the scariest things about buying a car is dealing with the stranger behind the desk. So I want you to know a little bit about me and hopefully alleviate some of that fear and make you feel comfortable.

My Sales Philosophy

I've been in the sales profession for over a dozen years now with the last five being in the heavy machinery and automobile industry.

I've been lucky to have some great mentors who have taught me a lot. But the most important thing I think I learned was told to me by Art Mohr, who had been in the used machinery business for over 50 years. He told me that I never had to pressure someone into buying, that my job wasn't to sell them the machine I had, but the machine they needed. The machine I had would be sold to the right person, when the time was right. Thanks Art.

I have brought that mentality with me to auto sales. I don't need to pressure you into buying a car. I need to work with you to make sure we choose the right car.

I believe the saying that you should not judge a salesman by the answers he gives you, but by the questions he asks you. I want to ask you the questions that will insure we put you in the right car or truck for you.

So let's talk and let me put you in the right vehicle for you.
