Gary Walters - General Manager/ Managing Partner
616-896-5227 - firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been in the Car business for 38 years with over 25 years of experience helping people rebuild and build their credit through a proven 3 step process. I have always enjoyed seeing people go from thinking they have no chance of getting a loan to 2-3 vehicles down the road buying their dream vehicle. They are then financially free of High interest rate and difficult terms. I have a unique following. I have been known as the Walking Man's friend! I am now taking this throughout the West Michigan market and would love an opportunity to help you and your family with either a custom auto loan or even a custom Jeep or Truck to your specifications. We will help you with confidence in a relaxed environment at one of our Three locations. I will help you get a dream in your driveway!

I've been in the Auto Industry for 28 years. I got into the business in Ohio when I moved my family down there for a job as an Electrician. When I showed up to work on Monday, the company that hired me closed, so I didn't have a job. My Uncle told me to go down to the dealership and see if they'd hire me. They did, and I never looked back. I love this business and I wouldn't do anything else. I have 4 Children and we spend as much time with each other as we can. I have a Boxer named Daisy. I've lived on Gun Lake in Wayland for 3 years now and LOVE it!! I love Michigan football! GO BLUE!!
