My sales production within the Ford Showroom has been in the top 3 since I started at Towne Ford 12 years ago.

Prior to that, I was the top salesman at Jack Adkins Ford for the last 6 years they were open.

I still enjoy my job 24 years later. I truly enjoy making a stressful time not so stressful. If you want a nice easy car buying experience, call me and I promise I'll do what I can to help.
