Most days I’m busy working deals and talking with clients and dealerships. But, it was weird. I got two calls in the same month from reporters doing stories on car buying, looking for an expert car negotiator or former car salesman. Of course, I was happy to take some time away from negotiating car deals to answer questions and contribute.
Actually, Amy’s thorough car buying series she called Car Buying Tips You Auto Know, was encouraging to me as I have been working to provide free content and car buying help to consumers who usually want to know how to beat the car salesman and get a good deal. Her and I connecting on this consumer report came at the right time for me.
I spend most of my time on the phone negotiating car deals and talking with my paid clients so it’s not always easy to step away and devote time to sharing what I do and how I do it. But through this experience, I found the confirmation I needed to devote time to consumers who aren’t interested in hiring a car negotiator or car buying advocate, like us at YCBA.
Which is totally cool, because our services are not for everyone. And we don’t have the time for everyone either. Car deals take time. Just ask my wife. Most days she has to remind me to turn on the DND (Do no disturb) button and shut down my phone for the night. Imagine dealerships calling and texting you all hours of the day. It gets a little nuts!
