Melissa Chase – Review on the All New 2013 Lexus GS350

As promised, I finally caught up with Melissa Chase from 103.7 the River to get her review on the all-new 2013 Lexus GS350 and here’s what she had to say.

I challenge you to come by Lexus of Richmond today to experience this magnificent vehicle and others in its class! 

P. S.  Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!  Our showroom will be opened on Monday!  I hope to see you.

The Evolution of Technology – That Was Then!

Dinosaur!

Remember the day when we relied heavily on facimiles, copy machines, carbon paper, postage stamps, typewriters, newspapers and paper maps!  I think back to those time, and I shake my head!  Unbelievable.  We were the modern day Flintstones living in the stone age in comparison to the conveniences of today.

Now with iPhone, iPads, emails, text messaging, PC’s, digital advertising and navigation (GPS) systems, I cringe at the thought of having to change a ribbon in a typewriter!  Seriously?  Not even!  The only use I would have for a typewriter would be as a decorative piece used for starting “remember when” conversations, along with the house phone. 

When I took on the role of Technology Specialist for Lexus of Richmond, my Director of Fixed Operations shared this Lexus video with me.  Hilarious!  Made me feel a little nostalgic.  Watch this video with me as we travel down memory lane!

Sales Consultant of the Month – Robert Norton

Sales ConsultantIt is with pleasure that I introduce to you Lexus of Richmond’s SALES CONSULTANT of the MONTH for both March and April of 2012, the one and only Robert Norton!   I sat down with Robert on yesterday for an exclusive interview and here’s what he shared.
   
Robert how long have you been in the automotive industry?
“I have been in the automobile business since October, 1982.” 
 
 How long have you been with Lexus of Richmond?
“I have been with Lexus of Richmond for 6-years and 3-months”.
 
Robert, you have earned SALES CONSULTANT of the MONTH for 2-consecutive months.  What do you attribute your success to?
“There are several things I attribute my success to.  I keep in touch with my previous clients.  I have a good relationship with so many, that they remember me for their next car purchase.  Because I have such good relationships established, they refer others to me.  I sincerely try to serve the peopole I work with, educating and informing them without a lot of hoopla.  People know when you’re truly interested in helping them in any business.  I set goals every month for myself in writing.  I believe something happens when you reduce a goal to writing and then you are willing to put forth the effort to make it happen.”
 
Robert, what is in your opinion, the best selling Lexus model?  And why?
“In my opinion the LexusRX350 is the best selling Lexus model.  It has such a proven track record.  The styling, comfort, smooth ride, dependability, technology, and the resale value is absolutely the best in today’s market.
 
Robert thank you for the interview and congratulations again on your achievements.  I’m certain you will do equally well in the months to come.
“Thanks for this Kim.  I am humbled.” 
 
The pursuit of perfection continues!  Please come by and meet Robert Norton and our staff of friendly, competent Sales Consultants at Lexus of Richmond today!

 

Lexus of Richmond “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting March for Babies

Thank you to everyone who came out to our “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting the March for Babies on Saturday!  The fundraiser was a HUGE success–we were able to raise an additional $3,700 towards our Lexus of Richmond team goal!  Click here for more photos.  Lexus of Richmond employees pulled together as a team and donated lots of gently-used items for the sale–everything from furniture and TV’s, to new and used baby items, clothes and more!  We also had a bake sale and car wash to add to the festivities.  We look forward to walking together as Team Lexus of Richmond on Sunday, May 15th in Monroe Park!  Look for our final donation annoucement (we’re still collecting here!) and pictures of the walk next week!  For more information about the Richmond, VA March for Babies walk, click here
