So my job is to develop relationships within the dealership community and provide a source in which local franchise dealers, or other maybe banks, entities, a source for them to get rid of their aged inventory or their wholesale. Otherwise they
would need to get rid of that a local auction. You know honestly I was I was kind of lost. I was getting out of the
military, wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. Just knew that I wanted to be
somewhere in the sales customer service
department because that’s just kind of the environment I always seem to thrive in. When I was approached about this job
even though my initial reaction was “no way” because I didn’t want to deal with the headaches of an auction. After I looked into it and I got an idea of the concepts and really how it all works, man it it really took off in my head and I got no no regrets. I love it. It’s like any company ever worked for before. I have a lot of control of the way
the territory operates. You know compared to previous auctions that have worked for, or previous companies that I’ve
worked for, you’re treated like a teammate, not just like a number. Treated like family or they give you a flexibility to be able to kind of control your
own destiny and do your own thing as long as
you’re doing what you need to do right. So Austin is a really nice place. Tons of places to go hiking. It’s a beautiful area very scenic. Real foodie place, there’s tons of
places to eat, live music everywhere. So that and hanging out with my wife that’s what I do.
