“Erin helped me when I decided to sell my Toyota dealership. We had several bumps in the road, but none that became obstacles thanks to Erin’s knowledge, experience and ability to navigate difficult situations. I am very happy with the deal we put together. I don’t know if we would have gotten it done without her.”

– George McCall, Toyota Central

“Erin represented me when I bought my Mercedes, BMW, GM, Volvo and Subaru dealership. It was great having someone on our team who has handled hundreds of auto dealership transfers. She was able to help us coordinate all the manufacturers, landlords and lenders, and deal with several road bumps we encountered along the way.I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a dealership!”
