I think the one thing I have found hardest in pursuing business ventures is being unable to find others who share the same level of tireless enthusiasm as myself. Not only does it add inspiration to us, but it also gives us an idea of what to expect and possibly how we should deal with it. I actually got to work with his 3 partners a few years back when I was doing business in the entertainment niche and I really respect what they were able to do with FUBU. The simplicity and specificity of the questions are still there. Daymond: Love the fact you mortgaged your house and turned it into a workshop because you knew it was going to work.

Nicely improvised. Thank you. At the time, I did what I had to do, and I was lucky enough to land on my feet. Hi Daymond, I love Shark Tank. I watch it every week. Is this possible? I have ideas, but need someone whom I can trust to show me how to get started.

I will read your book. I always love hearing the stories of determined people. The go getter attitude is very inspiring. I agree it is awesome to see a big company grow organically. You always think that big companies were always big companies but they always started somewhere. So motivating. Thanks to all of you for supporting me and Shark Tank. Thanks Tim, for the great interview!

You thought outside the box and allowed me to share some new information. Want to take 10 minutes of your time to talk to you about my business in the College Market. I sent you a letter handwritten on the plane to China. Met with your partner Christopher at Magic years back. You guys introduced me to your Sony factory manager and I was smooth sailing after that….

At the end of the day, a dream is fueled by the determination of the dreamer. I think having efficiencies, hacks for life and business knowledge help you stretch that determination further. Great story, great interview. I absolutely love when this question is asked, and those are two great books. Tim, have you read them? Excellent, poignant questions abound. Keep up the good work. Your points for entrepreneurs are spot on. Being able to hone in on the key questions an investor or outside consultant might ask, and then frame the business and its strategy as a response to those hypotheticals makes the venture more robust and helps set it up for market success.

The sort of due diligence you encourage is critical in taking things to the next level. Starting a company is not easy as I am in my second year in the personal training industry and we have grown at a good rate but definitely I have made mistakes but learn from them. I would love to one day interview you tim or daymond even if it is for five minutes.

Love Shark Tank! One of the best shows on T. Always sweat the small stuff and always know that you are a damned sight better then you think you are! I particularly liked the part about going from imagination to conception. I recently made the jump from idea to conception. Thanks for the inspiration! It definitely shows that with the right mindset you can achieve what you really want in life.

I wholeheartedly agree with many of these principles, but the one I resonate with most is going from imagination to conception, than taking more steps and overcoming more hurdles. Once again you give timely advise in short pocket size information bytes. Each byte has the explosive factor to make a reader think big in one small step at a time.

Daymond thanks for being so real and honest about your struggles. Crew, Microsoft, Major League Lacrosse and many more. In fact, 4-hour guest blogger Ramit Sethi spoke at our annual conference. There are several opportunities in addition to speaking, including our monthly newsletter and online social network. If this sounds of interest, please contact me at the email address below and I can offer you more details. Thanks in advance and I look forward to your reply!

I wish more companies knew how to utilize the true power of social media, without just looking at it to improve their bottom line. Sharktank is my favorite t. Great stuff- I remember when FUBU first came out and was getting big, I was in middle-high school and a lot of guys started wearing it. Then again, I just heard about Shark Tank about 2 weeks ago. Guess I need to catch up on my entrepreneur TV shows. Well, I no longer live in an urban area, so that could be part of the reason, but I just assumed the company died out.

Interesting to see that the founder has had continued success. What is next, Tim? Good stuff as always. That interview was really inspiring. Beyond the success of the big companies nowadays are struggles and thinking how the business works. The key to that is dedication, love of the craft and never give up. Believe in yourself. Thank you so much for sharing this insightful interview with one of my entrepreneurial idols. I am a huge fan of Daymond John, especially after seeing him on the Shark Tank.

Maybe Tim can weigh in on what an investor would think on the matter. No biggie really, I was just trying to be helpful. In my opinion you were actually taking away something from him…you say that in you last post, but not in the previous one. I never said you were incorrect, I was just saying that he can call it what he wants……based on his success. I focus a lot on Mr. Johns commentaries, interviews, and his decisions on Shark Tank. He is a great inspiration to all races, but especially to the black community.

I will definately be pitching my product to him in the near future. I think the biggest thing is to be able to just go out there and put yourself on the line. Mary has a Brain Tumor and I am paralyzed from the chest down. One day I noticed Mary having problems with one of her undergarments! In 10 seconds I had the solution , had her model a couple of different styles and drew them up freehand , added our Invention to it and the idea became an instant hit among the women in the facility!

From there we found an investor that had to do a little research of his own before he invested in our product!! He found very positive results and decided to invest! The best part about this whole idea is that it can be added at the end of the assembly line as not to impede the normal manufacturing process. We do have prototypes made and this invention would make things a lot more safe for women to carry credit cards , Money , MP3 players and other valuables out of site!!

I would love to go on sharktank and parter with Daymond, i know he would love my designs. I developed a special type of t-shirt that helps define the leanest of muscles on girls or boys. I may be the oldest white guy who has driven miles to listen to Daymond John speak as keynote speaker at 7Elven corporate headquarters a bit more than a week ago. Having attended my share of high profile events, with people like Donald Trump, Anthony Robbins, Raymond Aaron, let me tell you Daymond is in the highest standing in my book.

As a Graduate of the United States Naval Academy, I have heard the finest military, civilian and religious speakers in my 65 years on planet Earth. I felt 5o years younger after listening to Daymon speak, and would have benefited more in my life from his entrepreneurial story of his life than all the books I have read, or by listening to anybody who spoke on the subject of motivation. Thanks, and God bless and keep you doing great things. It is very exciting to be able to read such an inspiring story.

I became intrigued to know more about Mr. John after I became a fan of Shark Tank. John but after Shark Tank I am ready to do business with preferably him or someone he may recommend in the apparel market. I recently missed him when he did a presentation at one of our local colleges so I am reaching out to make a connection to him or someone who has connections to him. I am looking forward to the challenge of hearing back from this request. The following text is what I received in a letter from SharkBranding. Keep in mind that Mr. John created these special rates to help all businessmen and women looking to take their business to the next level.

Whether you have just a business idea, recently started a business, or are trying to take your brand to the next level, Mr. John will teach you business lessons that only someone who has created a multi-billion dollar brand from scratch could. Thank you if I have not thanked you prior to now. Second, I did acquire the information you posted, and have read the information provided, thank you very kindly. Have been quite engaged on numerous fronts, plus survivor now since skin cancer and am a bit more active now. Keep yourself healthy, and happy, and stay in touch, Very Respectfully, Willy.

Email SharkTankCasting yahoo. Starting a brand that fills a niche is only the beginning, next comes the ability to show others that it is possible and profitable to continue moving forth. Let me tell you Joseph. I drove miles to listen to Daymond John speak at the conference as he was keynote speaker. Having been to 75 countries, lived in 17 major US Cities, being over 65, white, having heard some of the best motivational speakers in the world, let me assure Daymond is in the top tier of speakers, beating Anthony Robbins, and Donald Trump.

Dear mr. Daymond john, my name is Benjamin L. I am really impressed with your work and your rise to success. This reading has really been an inspiration to me.

Lunches With Mr. Q by Kevin Nelson- Kjell Qvale

I think this new project of yours will succeed and you will find the right partners you need. I really enjoyed reading about how he understood what it took to make his company grow and always having vision. And the understanding of the global market. We've purchased three cars here and highly recommend them. This week I took ownership of my 5th Subaru Forrester, that pretty much says it all, however the experience at Roy Robinson Subaru with sales agent Kelly Rayson was quick and easy. So comforting to work with the same people over and over.

As an auto enthusiast who has bought nearly a dozen cars in nearly as many years, spanning everything from daily drivers to exotic weekend toys, I can say working with Ivan O. Car serviced promptly, washed and vacuumed. Waiting area large, clean, and comfortable. Employees polite and knowledgeable.

Great company! I was leary about finding a truck on the internet but scheduled a test drive with Brandon, he called me in a timely fashion after my request was made. I went in and drove the truck and liked it so I agreed to purchase. The whole experience was very laid back and comfortable for me and my husband.

Brandon was very knowledgeable and kept me up to speed during the whole process. I will definitely buy from here again! Bought a used vehicle here. We were looking for a vehicle with specific features and they let us know when the right vehicle arrived at their lot. Unlike other dealers, they were willing to work with us and our budget. The vehicle did need some repairs, but they followed through on their commitments and got everything fixed as we requested. Great car shopping experience! Wesley went above and beyond in helping find the right car for me. His 'no pressure' sales style was perfect!

He really paid attention to things I said and showed me as many cars as I needed to see, even suggesting a few in the price range and styles I wanted, for me to be sure of my choice. We even drove one car between lots Roy Robinson Chevrolet and Subaru to check other styles before I decided. I really appreciated his care and attention to the details I mentioned and really made me comfortable and happy to be shopping. I found him to be honest, straight-forward, kind, and really wanting me to be happy with my choice.

The financing part went really smoothly as well. I would definitely buy a car from Wesley and Roy Robinson again. I am a repeat customer, and he solidified my decision to continue! They have great service and I got a super good deal! Huge shoutout to Kyle M he helped out so much with this deal and was so patient , kind and a good listener. Definitely recommend coming here for a car. I needed a car for light commuting to and from school; Peter Granath did a great job of asking what I needed and showing me some viable options within my budget.

Ended up finding an '07 Ford Focus for a good price. Everyone here is really friendly and I felt I could trust their mechanics too - they charge the sales dept for any needed repairs, so they are motivated to find any and all issues with the cars. I appreciated greatly the transparency I found here and I will definitely return next time I'm car shopping.

Troy was excellent on the phone before driving over to Marysville. The visit with Troy was just as good! Troy was great at listening and explaining everything. Finance was efficient and took time to give my son praise on his responsibility of his credit at his young age. Definitely will give them my business again! I just bought a new to me vehicle from Roy Robinson.

Their sales staff are friendly and inventory is huge. Brandon was my salesman and he did an outstanding job getting me the deal I wanted on my car. The team was fair and willing to work with me to close the deal. I've bought other cars from Roy Robinson in the past and will be back again in the future! I had the best experience possible here all thanks to Ivar Mejlaender! Ivar not only snagged me a deal that I never expected but he also took the time to give me a bit of guidance with the car buying process.

Ivar covered everything and became a spectacular source of knowledge for me! I drove away more confident and comfortable with the process of buying a new vehicle! And I am extremely pleased with my purchase! It is a rare occasion to find a car salesman that takes the time to care about your wants and needs while shopping for a new vehicle! I will absolutely return here in the future as well as send anyone I know in the market for a new vehicle to Roy Robinson Chevrolet. Thanks again Ivar! Good buying experience, Jonathon was a new salesman and had several questions for the sales manager but was always attentive and professional.

The truck we bought needed some add on things at the service center and were told that we'd be contacted to schedule an appointment.

I really thought I'd end up needing to call on my own but was pleasantly surprised the next morning when the service center called and got me later that day. Very impressed with the sales and service of Roy Robinson. Yet to buy, but impressed with how we were treated during our visit. Very helpful and not pressured at all. Thanks Flip! Service and Part Dept very kind and helpful. Was in and out for Oil Change and Part quickly. Great service, clean, nice waiting room. Free popcorn,coffee, and water. Very transparent in their pricing etc. Great job on our car and was nice and clean when we got it back.

Jim Cudney was my salesperson. I have owned Class A and Class C motorhomes and a small travel trailer so have had extensive experience in purchasing RVs over the years. I will say unequivocally that our experience with Jim was the most pleasant purchasing experience we have ever had. Knowledgeable, kind, friendly and fair would describe his approach. We felt no pressure in making our decision and readily came to terms on a deal. His follow-up post-purchase on several operational questions was amazing - timely and helpful.

Excellent customer service. Kelly waited for us to drive from tacoma for over 2 hours on 4th of July weakend.. Thank you Kelly. Literally took 15 mins to find, apply, finance and purchase my new Subaru. It's always a good sign when the longest thing you wait for is them to clean your car for ya! No pressure, no tricks, just good service. Thanks Jeremay and Roy Robinson Staff! I had an amazing experience purchasing my 4th car from Roy Robinson Subaru. Ivan was a great sales person to work with as there was no pressure to buy and was very knowledgeable.

I am a repeat customer for a reason at this dealership. Each person I dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and seemed to be rooting for me! Thank you Roy Robinson for yet another great experience. I highly recommend Brandon Bakemeyer in sales he will do everything he can to meet your automotive needs. We had a very pleasurable experience.

Brian Russell sales manager is a season of professional that will do all he can to find what you are looking for. Ivan was amazing. Relaxed and rested me like family. I appreciate that I was not stressed out from this experience and it was because of Ivan! This is a great RV company. The Service Department kept our latest RV in top shape for 12 years, and we felt like they knew us and our needs.

Their work was outstanding, their integrity unquestionable. We have sold our RV, but we will always have fond memories of the great Service Department, as well as the Sales Department who took our RV on consignment and sold it in less than three weeks. Fantastic experience with this dealership. Nate was personable and knowledgeable, Eric the new car manager went to work finding what I was looking for and worked miracles with the deal and Brandon was phenomenal at showing me all the bells and whistles on my new truck.

No one was pushy and they went above and beyond with their customer service unlike the majority of dealerships. I will be back for any future purchases and will be sending people their way. Best Chevy dealership from Seattle to Bellingham and worth the drive!! We went to two dealerships based on good reviews for a great customer experience and low pressure sales - Roy Robinson and Bickford Ford. When we walked in the door at Roy Robinson, Peter Granath was there to greet us and is who walked us around their various used non Chevy vehicles, as well as a couple of newer Chevy models.

We opened the inside of at least 7 different vehicles as we walked around. He also offered a test drive right out the gate, but we declined wanting to check out their Subaru side of the lot. Peter drove a separate vehicle and met us at that lot, we picked out the vehicles we wanted to see inside and he literally RAN inside and back out with all of the keys. The entire process probably took 2 hours. We told Peter we would think about it and be in touch, as we wanted to check out other dealerships. He was friendly, provided his cell number and said he hoped we found the right fit for us, whether it was with Roy Robinson or not.

We went straight to Bickford Ford where we walked in and the receptionist at the front desk didn't even look up to say hello. An employee towards the back paged a salesperson for us and we followed him to the desk. He told us to walk the lot and text him if we found something we wanted to see the inside of. We left to scour the lot of something we liked, to then search the 4 page sheet to ensure it was in our price range. We decided this wasn't the dealership for us and to return to Roy Robinson the next day to test drive the vehicles we liked.

Peter met us before they even opened Sunday morning, ready for us to test drive all the vehicles we previously mentioned. He was patient as we went back and forth, asked for my opinion on how the vehicles drove, didn't push to get us into something we couldn't afford and was overall personable, friendly and a pleasure to have as a salesperson. We ultimately decided on a vehicle slightly out of our original price range, at only our doing, and Peter worked to get us a great deal. Again, he was patient, friendly and determined to get us into something we really loved. We had a terrific experience with Roy Robinson and an even better experience with Peter.

He was no pressure and definitely made what I was sure to be a traumatic, complicated and drawn out experience into something enjoyable and efficient. I was able to get a great feel for a variety of cars, pick something I love without wasting a lot of time. We will definitely be returning here for our next car purchase. We can not recommend Roy Robinson and Peter enough- thank you!!! Doug and Susan were super professional and helpful. Every step in the process was smooth and painless from negotiation, test drive and signing the final documents.

The next time we need another vehicle, I will not hesitate to see these guys again even though we live all the way in Puyallup. Thank you Roy Robinson Subaru! Great experience buying a new Subaru from Ray Robinson Subaru. Kelly Rayson was very helpful and patient during the whole car buying process, and went over the car features and controls in detail once the paperwork was complete. Definitely recommend this dealership.

Would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone interested in a Subaru. Troy is very professional, patiently answered all my question, very accommodating and easy to work with. Just want to mention that everybody working in this place is super nice. I had such a wonderful experience car shopping at Roy Robinson Subaru with Dan. He wasn't pushy, explained all of the fun details of the car and then threw me the keys to test drive. I loved that I was able to get a feel for the car by myself without having someone watch me drive. I ended up not purchasing the car at that time due to an appointment I had, but I came back the next day.

When I came back, he already had the keys ready for me to test drive again. The whole process of purchasing the car was seamless. He worked with me on pricing after talking to him the day before about me being a recent graduate, what my budget was and the fact that I had also used Costco Auto when I was searching. I also loved that a manager didn't come out and have to 'close the sale'. Earlier in the week when I was at another dealership, 3 different managers came out to try and pressure me into the sale. I love the confidence that the managers have to let their staff do their own selling.

The finance gal I forgot her name, sorry! She did a great job explaining to me the different things I could add on to my plan and she was just fun to chat with. Dan was so wonderful and I would absolutely by a car from him again. My boyfriend was upset that we hadn't check out this dealership 6 months ago when he was car shopping. He said it was the best experience he's ever had at a dealership, and I agree! My husband and I were referred to the Roy Robinson dealership from good friends and we couldn't be more pleased with their service.

We worked with Nate, who was friendly, knowledgeable and genuine from the very start - never pushy. Not to mention, the test drive came with a great tour experience, full with recommendations of the best spots in town - we'll let him fill you in on that little secret :-P! Nate, Brian and Lina from Roy Robinson Chevrolet definitely made our shopping experience worth-while, enjoyable and comfortable from start to finish.

Thanks for everything! I was helped by Adam Tensley, a really nice young salesman.

The was really great and so was everyone. This is the third car we have bought from Roy Robinson and probably won't be the last. Thank you, Carol P. Just took my Subaru up for a recall fix and their service department is fantastic! Salesman Steve Donley and the staff were very friendly and not pushy. Steve showed us some class A's based on my price range but we did not find one we liked.

We noticed a used Winnebago and Steve made us the best deal ever! He followed through with down to earth facts about pricing and even valued my trade higher than I thought, in the end it was his style that made us feel we were safe in purchasing. Thank you very much. This is our latest vehicle we have purchased through Roy Robinson. Always great service and good deals! Definetly will come back for future vehicles. My experience at Roy Robinson Subaru was fantastic.

Ian was patient with all my indecision and helped me pick just the right vehicle without pressuring me into anything I didn't really want. Buying a car is one of my least favorite things to do usually but this experience was great. Thanks to Ian and Roy Robinson Subaru. Ivan was great! Wholeheartedly recommend him. Straight forward, got the job done. Love our new Denali!

Staffs are friendly, service department always take good care of me when I get my car service. I'm blessed to have walked away from the wreck and to be able to get a new car. Thanks Father in heaven and our salesman Peter. This is the 4 car that we have purchased from Roy Robinson. Great establishment. Great service. Faster then any other car purchase I have made. Nate Peterson is the man. I have always been treated well here from vehicle buying to having service done here.

I own a Colbalt that I bought new and other then maintenance and new brakes I just put on last year it has always ran great. He made my whole year!!!! The service and selection on vehicles is absolutely superb. Been going to this Roy Robinson's dealership for over 15 years and any time I look at another dealership they remind me why I stay with Roy Robinson. I would like to point out some of my favorite people to deal with, Rousseau's is a hard working person that will find you the car that meets or exceeds your wants and needs. Eric is top notch his experience in RV and knowing what is needed wanted or too much goes a long way in helping make the right choice for your recreational vehicle.

They are both honest dependable you won't be disappointed. Let them know that Marty B sent you in. Happy shopping Great dealership with a sterling reputation. We were treated fairly and honestly and the staff was great. The salesman, Ivan, was straightforward and worked to get me a great deal! Came in for airbag recall service. I was originally scheduled in October they are now booked out thru November, btw! Check in process was friendly and efficient. Got a loaner overnight they seem to have a HUGE fleet of them , and my car was ready first thing. Checkout was equally smooth.

Can't comment on them "overall" but this single visit was definitely a five star experience for me. Jeremy made the process extremely simple and exceeded all of my needs from a consumer perspective I would and have recommended him and the subaru dealership to other friends already. On June 2, my son and I went to Roy Robinson Subaru to look for a a used car and when we arrived we met a very nice sales man name Ivar Mejlaender who was very helpful and understood that I couldn't spend that much on a car. I told Ivar that through the years I have purchased several used cars from Roy Robinson and was happy with the cars I purchased.

My son and I looked at a couple of vehicles and ended up being able to purchase a Mazda minivan for a reasonable price. Thanks Ivar for the friendly service my son and I received. I definitely will recommend Roy Robinson Subaru. Fantastic service Cory was great, I totaled my car and had to find a new one quick and what a great experience with them will go back for sure. Wonderful experience getting my son a car. Our sales person was Iva Mejlaender. He was great, and always made us feel like he we were family, and that he had our best interest art heart.

After this experience I can't say there are no good car salesperson anymore. Cory sets the standard, no amount of time spared even after the sale was completed. Ivan Osorio was an incredible help. Best sales person we have ever delt with. Very professional and gave us a great deal on our new jeep. Salesman was quick at finding all the options I had in mind. Ivan was super knowledgeable about what was in the lot. Good place to get your car serviced. Good customer service too. Got a call from Doug Patchett shortly after, stopped in, and it was smooth process from there on. I traded my old car in for the Crosstrek and was given a fair trade in value according to Kelley Blue Book.

I couldn't be happier with my new car. Would highly recommend Roy Robinson Subaru. I just bought my wife and I a new Chevrolet Silverado. Jacob and Brian did a very fine job. I have to start out with I absolutely undeniably HATE the car buying experience, especially from dealers. The whole process is a giant waste of time, unpleasant, and overall skeezy. Nate Peterson made the process actually fun! We stopped in just to "look" Nate made it bearable by NOT being one of those skeezy salesman, not BS-ing us, and trying to get us in and out on a hot Sunday afternoon, even got water and cookies for our hot pooches and let them come in out of the sun and lay under his desk.

The entire team actually was very accommodating having good credit helps , even the spiel about buying all the "extras" went quickly. Overall a not too bad car-guying experience. My wife and I just purchased a Subaru Outback from Roy Robinson and are extremely happy with how everything has gone down. We had been shopping around a bit and landed on an outback - but had a pretty lame experience at another dealer selling a used on that we were interested in.

We decided just for fun to check out buying a brand new one at Roy Robinson, realized how much better of a deal this would be and decided to buy. Our sales person Michael is a solid dude. He was super nice, super knowledgeable, and not pushy at all. He laughed at my lame jokes, and put up with our screaming toddler. He is a trooper for sure. He worked with us and helped up stick within our budget, which we greatly appreciate.

We really loved his nice demeanor and laid back approach. He didn't feel the need to put the hard sell on us, and just used his personal experiences, product knowledge, and just overall friendliness to help us figure out which car would be best. Subarus sell themselves for the most part - and a lot of us Subaru loyalists are going to be back for more regardless, so it was nice having a sales person who is so in touch with that and didn't feel the need to give a rehearsed pitch. You can tell Michael is there because he digs these cars and is objective about them.

Michael is that dude. Seems like Roy Robinson is taking good care of him too, or at least that is how he described it. Now on to Shawn - the finance dude. Like Michael, super nice, super knowledgeable. He didn't shy away from any tough questions, tracked down answers for us about warranties, and was just a pleasure to work with.

Shawn also was very nice and helpful when dealing with our toddler who was clearly done with the dealership. I didn't ask if he is a parent or not, but he seemed to know how to help keep our kiddo distracted, which is a great skill. His patience and care with our deal really made the experience complete. Michael and Shawn made a great team and we will definitely point our friends in their direction!

We absolutely love the car - and are excited about how close the dealership is in terms of bringing it in for service! This was a great experience and I hope that the dealership can offer Michael and Shawn some formal recognition for a job well done that totally exceeded any previous car buying experience we've had before. Seriously - we definitely took our time with the test drive and asking a lot of questions but when we were at the business end of the visit - it was SO quick and efficient.

We really appreciate everything! Had a great experience here with Nate Peterson, buying our new Suburban. He's a new sales rep, with a great attitude. Made the whole experience an easy one. We just purchased a , Subaru Outback 3. Our journey began 18 months ago by exploring the Costco Buying Program that connected us with Michael.

We exchanged emails about questions we had and Michael checked back in with us every few months, not pressuring us but just to let us know changes in inventory and the like. Finally, we were ready to make a decision and wanted to go and see for ourselves what the cars were like after doing lots of reading about similar size options of other makes. It wasn't hard to sell us on Subaru, we've had four, but the experience mattered. Had that experience been stressful or had we felt pressured, we were in no hurry and would never have come back.

Michael's encyclopedic knowledge of the car was impressive. He has one himself! We went away another two weeks until the timing was just right financially. We couldn't get to the dealership until pm and despite staying past their 9pm closing time, the team stayed with the process until we drove out.

There no tricky, expensive surprises, we had been told pricing and options up front, in fact, we were given some nice addons for no additional charge. Everyone was pleasant and helpful despite a really long day. I would gladly recommend them for the buying process. Cody Laverdure was my Salesmen. He was very helpful and courteous. He has called me to followup on my purchase to make sure i was happy. We liked his enthusiasm which we appreciated.

Return customer. No pressure sales experience. Salesperson Dave K a pleasure to work with and spent plenty of time explaining all the automotive features during and after the road test. Very nice people. Explained everything to me without judgement. No sooner we parked and there was already a salesman ready to pounce.

Book Review: Lunches with Mr. Q

Cory listened and waited for us to lead the way. One model or trim was not better than another, it just served a different purpose. What about pre-owned? Here they are. Back to new ones? This way. From white to silver. Back to white, no worries. Perhaps it was a slow day surprising for the day before mother's day , but Cory spared no effort to help us get the car we wanted.

Roy Robinson Chevrolet has once again proven why I wont shop for a new car anywhere else. Adam made it painless when it came to the negotiation on my new Blazer. I walked in with high expectations and Adam and the crew met them and then some. Great customer service from Adam in sales and Dee in finance.

Two good guys. Thanks again Adam and Dee! Roy Robinson Chevrolet has once again exceeded my expectations. This is my 4th vehicle that I've purchased from Roy Robinson Chevrolet and Dok and his sales team provided outstanding customer service and a low stress experience. Dok's follow through after the initial purchase assisting me with their service department also demonstrated excellent customer service. I couldn't be happier with my experience. I am so thankful with those guys they really took care of me! Thanks a lot Ivan for helping the most that he could always from the side of the customer!

Always fast and friendly, willing to help any way they can. Great dealership, i had my forester XT seat replaced here and they did it quickly no issues, washed my car and gave me a loaner in the mean time. I went in a couple days ago to buy a used car. My budget was hard to hit. I was very picky in what I wanted as well. Wesley and Brian picked out a couple cars and helped me find a price that worked for me. These guys are awesome. Wesley is an amazing dude, he made buying a car one of the funnest experiences I could have had. Never felt pressured, he did everything he absolutely could to ensure I was taken care of.
