In our over 30 years of buying new cars, this ranks as one of the most efficient, professional and painless transactions that we have had.  From the first emails of our request for an Acura TL, to taking delivery of the vehicle two weeks later, everything was done in a smooth and professional manner.  We were fortunate that our requested color combination with navigation was showing up at the right place at the right time.  We love the car, especially the navigation, XM satellite radio.  The hands free phone will be great, also.  Thanks again for your excellent service.  We hope to do business with you again in the future.

Darcy, anything that makes my wife happy makes me happy!  Again, thanks for putting this deal together and we will certainly refer people to you when they are looking for a car.  You did a great job.

   Dave and Jan - Minnetonka, MN


We told Darcy at AutolinkMN the type of SUV we were looking for and how much we wanted to spend. A few weeks later, they delivered the perfect pre-owned Explorer.

   Patrick - Saint Paul, MN

Our family has purchased 3 vehicles through Darcy. His service is terrific, from vehicle sourcing, to title research, to industry knowledge. The pricing and overall value is unbeatable.

   Mary and Mike - Saint Paul, MN

AutolinkMN found the truck we were looking for, put us in touch with the financing, reviewed and detailed the truck and even advised us on warranty options.  It was a great buying decision.

   Matt - Saint Paul

The pricing that Darcy at AutolinkMN offered helped us buy a car for less than the actual loan value.  We recommend Darcy to anyone looking to buy a car.

   The Johnson's - Saint Paul, MN 

Everyone knows how much runaround one can get at car dealerships. AutolinkMN stepped in as our buying rep and their experience made car buying a delight.

   Bob - Saint Paul, MN

Darcy helped us sell a car that we no longer needed. His work with us was very professional, honest and transparent. He helped us quickly resolve a minor mechanical problem, and gave us honest advice in selling it. I wholeheartedly recommend this man to help you with your car purchases and sales. His service ethic and response time is OUTSTANDING. Prior to this transaction, we had purchased two other vehicles through him as well.

   Pam and Kevin - Saint Paul, MN

Darcy, a thousand times THANK YOU.  This was a very good decision you made for me  :)  I absolutely LOVE that car. I drove 60 miles since I left your house and I got 50.8 mpg according to the screen. I took it down to the gas station to fill it up and it was only $23.16 instead of $38.00. I assume it just doesn't hold as much, but if I can still go the same number of miles or more, I'm way ahead. I'm anxious to see how long this tank lasts.  Well, I'm off to Mankato (I hope tonight isn't the night I hit a deer on the way home.)  I am one happy camper and one very grateful mother-in-law!

   Kathy - Le Sueur, MN

Darcy, I want to thank you for all your help and expertise in my search for a vehicle for my daughters.  I picked up the car from Jon on Saturday.  I was able to get 4 new 60 thousand mile tires (an off brand that starts with a Y) installed for $350.  We picked it up last night and Josie was thrilled.  She and Livvy are very appreciative of all your efforts, as am I.  Jim stopped by tonight and made sure I understood how big of a favor this was and that you really went out of your way to help him out and I am the beneficiary of this.  I am truly thankful for your kindness and concern.  I hope to be able to refer business to you in the future.  Take care and please let me know if I can be of help to you.

An email to Darcy's mom from one of her co-workers...

Subject line: I know you know this, but...

eMail text: You have a wonderful son.  P.S.  He had "my car."  :-)

   Elsie  - Chaska, MN

I love the car and my wife Kathy likes it a little too much!  I appreciate your help making it so fast and easy again in all areas.  If you every want a testimonial of appreciation or something let me know, I will be happy to write something.  Also, I'd like to say thank you for setting up the floor mats for the Hyundai, I got both cloth and winter mats and they were very accommodating at the dealership. Won't be long until I will need to put those winter ones in!

   Jim and Kathy - Apple Valley, MN

We have the new car in our driveway tonight!  Mike did a great job in delivering this to us.  Be sure to thank him for us. His service was sure appreciated.  Thanks for your service!  As I told Eric tonight this is the only way to buy a car. Not stepping into the pressure of a dealership, made this a most pleasing experience.  Thanks for being patient with us, it has been one busy start to the school year.  If anyone is looking for a new car up here you can be sure I will be sure to mention you.  Thanks again.

   Allen and Deb - Pine City, MN

I picked up the Ridgeline today. It's so awesome!. Dave was great. I didn't work with him much because, well, the deal was pretty much done, but, I really enjoyed having ZERO pressure from him.  I didn't get to see him before I left, so please, if you could, thank him for me and tell him I really appreciated his time.  And YOU!  Thank you Darcy!  I really appreciated your knowledge and no pressure approach as well.  I'm really happy with the deal I got.  If you don't mind, I'm referring you to as many people as I can!  I've already had two buddies ask me for your info, and I know of two others that have been talking about buying in the near future.  So, thanks again.  You really impressed me.

   Scott - Rockford, MN

I love it!  The size, the color, the gas mileage...it's just great!  It did take me a little while to figure out where the latch anchors were for the baby's car seat, but other than that, everything has been just fabulous.  Thanks for all your help, Darcy.  I have bragged to my colleagues how easy it is to buy a car with your help, so I'll definitely be passing your name along to others.  I look forward to working with you in the future, but hopefully not for another 7 or 8 years. :)

   Alison - St. Louis Park, MN

Darcy, I absolutely love my Lexus.  It is such a quiet, smooth ride.  The kids really enjoy the DVD player.  I know have to stock up on kid DVD's.  Thanks again!

   Jean - Luck, WI

Have set up a trapeze and the whole family is flying around!  The car is beautiful.  Gorgeous color.  Drives like a charm.  No 50 miles per gallon, but I have my trusty little Prius for that.  The guy at the dealership was was super too.  He drove the paperwork over to Steve’s office so we could get the deal done there in the parking lot, then drove me over to the rental car agency so I could get rid of that bucket of bolts and drive home in the new baby. Was incredibly helpful and delightful to deal with.
Happy doesn’t begin to describe the feeling when I put a neat magic marker line through BUY NEW CAR on the old never-ending to-do list.  Thanks very much, D.  Happy Camper!

   Nancy and Steven - Minneapolis, MN

Darcy, thanks so much for your help!  About 30 minutes to do paperwork and another 30 to get a tutorial on the truck and we were out of there.  Greg even threw in 4 free oil changes and a set of rubber floor mats!  My wife loves her new truck!  Thanks again for creating an absolutely painless buying experience!  How are you with Mercedes?  Regards!

   Chris - Plymouth, MN

The beast is in my possession.  Now I just need to get the damn work day over so I can go have some fun!!

   Josh - Eden Prairie, MN

Buick is great.  Carol was great.  Between you and Carol you make it very easy to buy a car.  And Carol just sent fresh cookies!  Thanks.

   Dick and Mary - Spring Park, MN

Darcy, I just wanted to say thanks for all the work you did finding my car and taking my old one.  You made everything so much easier and I really appreciate it.  The car is fabulous and I love it.  I am really happy with it and I've already gotten tons of compliments on it.  Thanks so much for all your help.  If I know anyone looking for a car I'll be sure to send them your way.  Thanks again.

   Mallory - Anoka, MN

Darcy, the pleasure is ours!  You really need to market the phrase "we make leasing a vehicle enjoyable."  Hopefully we can hook up for a beer on me one of these days!  Thank you.

   Troy and Sara - St. Michael, MN

My New Sonata is beautiful!  So far, I love it.  And thank you for taking care of the drop off, etc.  I sooo wanted to go out and play with it after lunch.  Unfortunately, I still had two classes to go!  Thank you for your attention to detail and your advice through this.  It really was so much easier for me to go through you.  I will definitely give you a call before the lease is up to look at buying verses leasing again.  If all goes well with this one, I must may continue to lease for a while.  Being by myself, it just doesn't make sense for me to drive a car until it is old and gray.  Too much to worry about.  Anyway, I will definitely recommend you and your services to friends looking to buy cars.  Thanks again Darcy.

   Deb - St. Louis Park, MN

Hi Darcy.  Well, we picked up my mom's car yesterday morning and she loves it.  I can't thank you enough for all of your help.  You sure made the car buying process extremely easy for me.  It is a terrific car, and she feels safe.  Thank you again for all of your help.  Have a terrific holiday season.

   Susan (& my mom Annette) - Chanhassen, MN

Mornin' to you Darcy!  
The new Suburban is exactly what we were looking for...Suzy LOVES the interior much better than the silver one.  Can't think of any questions at this point...thanks again for all of your help, and Brad's and Barb's help as well.  It's a real pleasure doing business with all of you.  Don't forget to put me on the calendar 2 years out because I'll be looking for another one!

   Steve - Golden Valley, MN

The following letter was sent directly to a VP at one of our largest credit union partners:

I understand that you supervise either or both Tim and Matt.  I wanted to send you a note of commendation on my recent car buying experience through the credit union. With Tim's services as my auto advocate and Matt's arrangement of the financing, my entire experience was an incredibly easy and forthright task. Tim maintained excellent communication with me through the process, including a few calls back and forth on the weekend, was patient with my questions, and did not try to push specific cars or features. Financing through Matt was also a pleasure. While I have a good credit history, there was a minimum of fuss with again, a very straightforward presentation of the conditions of financing. I particularly liked the close communication between Tim and Matt where the right hand knew where the left was during the entire process. In short, I was very leery of buying a car and arranging financing sight-unseen, from 200 miles away. I had approached our local dealer with the stated intention of buying a car locally and offered to pay several hundred dollars over the quote from Tim to do so. Our local dealer would not negotiate their price and so I went through the credit union and saved over $700 dollars. There could have been many pitfalls but Tim and Matt were exemplary in their performance. I am recommending the credit union to those I talk to about car buying.

   Doug - Bemidji, MN

The new car is GREAT.  The people at the Acura dealership were awesome too.  And most of all, thanks for all the hard work on the trade-in.  Really, really appreciate it.  
Thanks Darcy! You are the best.

   Shelley - Apple Valley, MN

Tim, I just want to thank you for all of your help.  We met with Mike at 10:00 yesterday and were on the road by 11:00.  Everything went very smoothly.  I was very impressed with Mike and I really appreciate all that you did for us.  I will definitely recommend your services to other people.  My wife actually let me drive the car from the Toyota dealership to Monticello.  I think she was a little nervous about driving out of the cities.  Anyway, the car handled beautifully.  My history is to keep my cars for 10 years and I suspect that this vehicle will be with us ten years from now.  Have a good day!!  Thanks again.

   John and Carol - Fergus Falls, MN

Tim, I'd like to thank you all for all the work you did to help me get through the whole car purchasing process.  Everything went smoothly yesterday and I picked up the car last night.  I am incredibly excited and still can't believe it's mine.  Once again, many thanks!

   Chris - Minneapolis, MN

I have to say this was a very positive experience for me.  I also asked Jim at the dealership and he was impressed with the process also.  Thanks again - the RAV4, so far, has been fun.  I'll pass your name along.

   Corrine - Faribault, MN

Good Morning, Darcy.  Just a quick note to thank you for getting us the RAV4. We picked it up last night and love it. Monica did a great job in finalizing everything...and, small world...Steve works with her dad at Target!  We have not been Toyota owners before but think we will really enjoy having the RAV4.  Thank you very much for your help.

   Steve and Mary - Fridley, MN

Thanks for your professionalism, Tim.  Everything went very smoothly with no issues at all.  I have spent more time shopping for a shirt then it took to sell my old car and buy a new one - amazing.  I was in and out in 40 minutes.  Mike was very efficient.  Thanks again, I appreciate all of your help.

   Bjorn - Minneapolis, MN

Tim, thanks so much with all your help getting our new car.  The car is great.  We had great service also with Mike.  He got us in and out in a very short time even with giving him short notice on picking up the car early.

   Don and Brenda - Lake Elmo, MN

Darcy, I got everything squared away with Greg at Lupient today.  He was a nice guy and service oriented and I will pick the car up on Saturday morning.  I am glad I was able to finally work with you.  It was quick, easy and no hassle.  Look forward to future dealings!!!  Thanks.

   Pete - Savage, MN

Darcy, I have a beautiful new blue Highlander Hybrid - thanks for all your help in getting it for me!  Monica was great to work with and Trisha was, too!  This is a much better system for purchasing a car for me!

   Marilyn - Avon, MN

Darcy, I am having a ball!  Jeremy at VW was great...everything went smoothly.  No big deal about black interior...it's fine.  The car is super cute.  Patty comes home today and I can't wait for her to drive it.  I think she's going to like it more than she thinks.  David absolutely hates it.  Oh well, he's not driving it.  Megan, of course, thinks it is cool that we have a "slug bug" and she gets to ride in the front seat (she is very curious about the air bag safety features, wanting it explained to her again, and again...  She loves the sunroof and that her window goes all the way down...a first for her.  Tom is happy because I love it.  It's fun and I feel like it's familiar and reminiscent of my youth (can't get too much of that as far as I am concerned).  Thanks for doing the leg work and setting us up with such ease.  You rock!!

   Shannon, Tom, Patty, David & Megan
   Rosemount, MN

Good morning, Darcy.  Thank you very much for making this so easy - my husband really appreciated being spared the "shopping experience".  I drove the car home on Saturday and I love it!  Thank you again for handling the process so quickly and professionally and for tying all the loose ends together.

   Heddy - Park Rapids, MN

Good morning and happy Monday, Darcy!  Not sure if you've been made aware by now but everything went very well on Saturday and we're really happy with the way it all worked out.  You've been very helpful through the whole process and we'd like to say thanks for making what we thought would be a bit overwhelming into a super smooth and easy experience.  We can see why you guys are so highly recommended!

   Sal and Mia - Golden Valley, MN

TIM!!!!!  You were fantastic.  Our credit union member actually cried at the end of the closing.  She (and I) appreciate all the hard work. Thank you so much for working with her, she is a very special member.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you were able to get her the rebates that you did. She will be so thrilled.  Thanks again for going the extra mile for her.  Have a good weekend as well and I hope you feel better soon.

   Jessica at the credit union - Saint Paul, MN

DARCY, YOU ROCK!!!  Just a sincere thanks for all of your help.  I have to mention that on our web site, there is a name of another auto broker listed without a phone number, but when I called the credit union to get the number, the person I spoke with highly recommended a broker she and her husband had used in the past and just raved about the great service provided.  She also stated that she and her husband would use the broker for future needs as well.  As soon as she gave me the name and number for that broker (Darcy), I told her that I had also used you in the past and was incredibly pleased.  So, I contacted you on Thursday, and by Friday my daughter was driving a used Nissan Altima at a price she could afford!!!  I just wanted to send a note of sincere thanks for not only finding a car within her price range, but Darcy, you also provided a car of such high quality that additional maintenance (other than normal wear and tear) would be minimal.  This is very comforting for a parent of a 19 year old who is paying for the vehicle herself and won't have a lot of money to spend on constant repairs.  I know I'm babbling on and on and on, but I want you to know that your excellent service is greatly appreciated!!!

   Ci Ci - Minneapolis, MN

We picked up the car and my wife absolutely loves it.  Once again, thank you!!  I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again for my next vehicle purchase.  Don't be surprised if you get a few referrals from me.  Thanks again.

   Joe - Hudson, WI

Hello, I just wanted to extend a thank you to the staff at the credit union.  I just purchased a car and used your auto buying program - which was absolutely wonderful.  Jessica, who handled my loan, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and we were put in contact with Tim to assist in the car purchase who was absolutely a pleasure to work with.  He even stopped by to examine my car for a trade in value.  Finally, when I stopped in at the credit union to sign the papers for the car loan, I decided to deposit a check as well.  There was quite a long line so I decided to just do it later and another employee (who looked like she was about to leave for the day) asked if I just wanted her to deposit it and send me the receipt.  Of course!  So she took my check and sent me the receipt in the mail.  Wow!  I was amazed!  Every person I have encountered at your credit union from Caty to Jessica to Matt to Tim and everyone in between has gone way above and beyond for me.  Thank you so much for your service - I'm happy every time I leave your credit union. 

   Shelly - Saint Paul, MN

Darcy, I'm very happy!  Got to drive my new car in a snow storm this morning, pretty cool!  I really want to thank you for everything. You made this process very easy for me and I really do appreciate all you have done and the patience you have had.  I will be sure to refer my members to you and will fill them in on the great experience that I had! J  I really enjoyed working with you and I love the car.  Thanks again!

   Angela at the C.U. - St Paul, MN

Hey Tim, I just want to say thanks for all you did to get me my new car.  I really like it and I know I wouldn't have found it if it wasn't for all your work.  Thanks so much!

   Anna - Saint Paul, MN

The car is here.  The deal is done.  Nice service.  Thanks for all your help.

   Roger - Stillwater, MN

Darcy, you made two people very happy yesterday.  Andrea (who bought my BMW) and myself.  I appreciate the speed at which you found me what I wanted.  Happy holidays!

   Glen - Stillwater, MN

Thank you for all of your help.  This has been a great experience and I have recommended your services to a few people already.  My fiance will need a car within the year and I will look forward to working with you again.  Thanks. 

   Jim - Oakdale, MN

Darcy, I wanted to send a note to let you know how much I appreciate the experience I have had in buying my new Honda CRV through you.  This was my first experience not working the deal myself, and going through a service like yours.  It was too easy.  I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop.  You did a great job finding the color my wife wanted and getting it here to MN.  I thought I would have a bunch of miles on it due to bringing the vehicle in from another state.  I was very surprised to look down and see that there were only 4 miles on the car!  Your man at Brookdale Honda was excellent as well!  He actually took the time to drive thirty miles to pick me up in Shakopee to get me to the dealer so I could finalize everything and get the car home.  Great service, great people, great price, great experience!  I will never buy a car without you again!  Best regards and thanks!

   Marty - Shakopee, MN

Everything went fantastic!  The people were great to work with at the dealership and the Highlander is everything we expected and more.  They mentioned the service contract but not rust proofing.  We had one for the Jeep and it worked out pretty good.  There were several things done that were covered by the service contract that saves us enough money to pay for the contract so they are a good thing to have.  If you can let me know the cost for the service contract and rust proofing I would appreciate it.  I'm telling everyone who asks about the Highlander how and why I went through AutolinkMN and that anyone who is looking for a car should be using your service.  Working with you and John made it the best car buying experience I've ever had.  Thanks for everything!

   Bill - Plymouth, MN

Hi Darcy!  I just wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in finding the Grand Am for me.  It was certainly a painless process and I think we were at the dealer for only about 45 minutes to sign the paperwork.  We absolutely LOVE the car and we will definitely be in touch with you in the future when we are in need of another car.  Our Chevy has over 125,000 miles on it so you can probably count on a call in the next year or so!J  I will continue to refer your service to friends and family in the future.  It is the best and easiest way to buy a car hands down!!!  Mark was also wonderful to work with at the dealership.  He had everything ready to go before we arrived so it was just a matter of signing the paperwork.  He then showed me all of the different functions on the car and also offered us a test drive.  The whole process was outstanding!!!  Thank you again.

   Michelle - Hudson, WI

The car (excuse me, truck) is absolutely beautiful and the whole experience working with you was just terrific.  I would never buy a new car any other way.  Thanks for ALL your help and for your patience as I went back and forth on my way to my final decision!

   Joanne - Edina, MN

​In our over 30 years of buying new cars, this ranks as one of the most efficient, professional and painless transactions that we have had.  From the first emails of our request for an Acura TL, to taking delivery of the vehicle two weeks later, everything was done in a smooth and professional manner.  We were fortunate that our requested color combination with navigation was showing up at the right place at the right time.  We love the car, especially the navigation, XM satellite radio.  The hands free phone will be great, also.  Thanks again for your excellent service.  We hope to do business with you again in the future.

   Rich & Claire - North Oaks, MN

Good morning Darcy!  Just wanted to say thanks so much for helping us find this FABULOUS car!  We love it... and couldn't stop cruising the town all weekend long.  In fact, my dad was so impressed that he wants to talk to you about possibly comparing some prices for my brother as he is trying to find a Jeep Cherokee (or something of that nature).  Would you just like him to email you?  Let me know what the easiest way is for him to reach you.  Thanks again and speak with you soon!

   Alyssa and Ray - Saint Paul, MN

Thanks for your help... Connie called from her cell phone while driving down highway 494... telling me how great the Pilot drives... much better than she remembered from the test drive... she loves it !!!  I will continue to pass out your name... will see you next time we trade cars!  Thank you.

   Dave & Connie, Chanhassen, MN

I love my new car!  Thanks so much for making this such a smooth experience.  Chung always had great things to say about his experience, but now that I have gone through the whole process, I understand why.  It was so stress free and there was no haggling with sales people!  I was satisfied with the $500 for the Saturn, she has seen her better days!  Thanks again for all of your help!  I really appreciate it.

   Cari - Minneapolis, MN

Thank you so much for your hard work in finding me a decent bid for my trade and for getting me the exact vehicle I wanted.  I picked up my new van this evening and it's everything I hoped for!!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You were so much more pleasant to talk to (and work with) than the salesman I originally spoke to on my own.  I will forward your name to all of my friends here in MN.  I wish you the very best!!!  Thank you.

   Lynn and Scott - Buffalo, MN

Thank you so much for your work in getting me a great bid on my trade!  I pick up my Honda Odyssey tomorrow at four.  I already called Dinie and have an appointment for Friday to have the rustproofing done.  Thank you so much for helping me get such a great deal.  I'll tell anyone who is looking for a car about your service.

   John - Plymouth, MN

I have the truck... they delivered it this morning.  What service... I just wish I could see my dad's face when he sees his new truck.  Again, I can't thank you enough for all your help and please forward a thank you to MaryBeth.  I wish the best for all of you and a Merry Christmas, too.

   Heather at C.U. - St. Louis Park, MN

Our new Expedition is just great - we couldn't be more happy.  Thanks again for a job well done and we'll never buy another vehicle without your help!  I think this is the fifth vehicle my family has bought using your services. There's no other way!  We both really like the Sirius radio.  We listened to it last night and it is great.  The dealer did a real nice job installing it - you can't tell it wasn't done at the factory.

   Dave - St. Louis Park, MN

I was a bit nervous driving home - this 4x4 Crew Cab Dually is a big truck!  Today I drove it over to Mankato to give my mom a ride in it and amazingly, it drove a lot better than yesterday.  I don't know if it was the truck or the driver that had to get broke in a bit!  I truly enjoyed driving it today.  I know you talked about spraying in the bed liner but I can't remember all the details. I am convinced that this is the way to go so let me know who to contact to get it done.  As I read more of the information, I will be calling you about the extended warranty, etc.  Thanks again for all of the help with making this the most pleasurable and least stressful purchase of my entire life!

P.S.  I think Sara was more excited than I was yesterday.  Thank you for remembering her...

   Dave and Linda - Waterville, MN

Things went without a hitch, right up to the moment I locked both sets of keys in the truck in the driveway Friday morning.  So I had another cup of coffee and called AAA.  Seriously, things went very well.  Chad and the team from the Ford dealer were timely and easy to deal with.  For people who know what they want, I would certainly recommend giving you a call.  You're easy going, easy to deal with and direct and to the point when appropriate.  I look forward to our next meeting.  Thank you.

   Dane - Minnetrista, MN

Yeah!  I got my new Vette and NO speeding tickets, although there was a close call this morning.  The car is beautiful.  As soon as the weather clears up I will take some pictures of your satisfied customer and his new car and send them to you.  Thanks again!

   Gary - Albuquerque, N.M.

Yahooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!! Hello Darcy, I picked up my new Highlander this evening and it was "WONDERFUL"!!! I met David for a brief minute and then did the final paperwork and payment with Larry.  Thank you for taking me through a painless and new way (for me anyway) of buying a new car.  You were kind, considerate, and easy to talk to regarding my needs and vehicle specifications.  If you talk to Mike, tell him I thank him very much for giving me your number.  I have spread the word about you at work and my supervisor wants your number.  She will be trading her Jeep Cherokee for a new vehicle. You may hear from her soon.  Again, thank you for all you have done.  

   Dan - Minneapolis, MN

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you helping me with this.  I couldn't be more happy with what I got and the color is perfect, it matches the interior nicely.  Also, I'll give you my address to send me some business cards so I can give one to everyone I know.  This could have been an extremely stressful experience but with you it was a breeze.  I'm pretty sure I will be driving this car for quite some time, but there is no doubt in my mind every car I buy after this will be bought through you.  Thanks a million.  
 
   Matt - Coon Rapids, MN

The switch has been made.  The turn in went very well.  Monica was very, very nice when I dropped the Corolla off.  Her first impression about the condition of the car was fabulous.  I will let you know if there are any issues with the bank regarding the condition, etc., and maybe you can help me with them like you did the last time.  She waited with me until Jay came to pick me up.  He was very, very nice also.  He said had been a broker prior to this job as fleet manager.  My new Honda Accord is beautiful!  It is HUGE! compared to the Corolla.  He walked me through every detail on the car.  Jay agrees that using people like you is the way to go.  Everything went really well.  Thanks again for everything, I really appreciate it.  

   Dee - North Saint Paul, MN

Darcy, anything that makes my wife happy makes me happy!  Again, thanks for putting this deal together and we will certainly refer people to you when they are looking for a car.  You did a great job.

   Dave and Jan - Minnetonka, MN

Hi Darcy, I got the 300C and I just love it.  It is just sweet.  Everything went fine at the dealership, the front license plate bracket and dealer marking was left off as requested.  I also got the $1,000 Chrysler financing discount.  You did a great job and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for a new car.  I see you have some used cars on your website.  As an auto broker, do you do anything different when it comes to buying a used car - any advantage to going through you?  I assume there is but it would be helpful to know.  When I get back, we can schedule the other work and get the extended service contract handled, etc.  Thanks again!

Darcy, I am happy!  We picked up the new Lexus on Saturday and it exceeds my expectations!!!!!!!!  The rims and tires make the truck unique and hot looking and I am grateful to Matt for the research and energy he put into this for me.  He does not seem like a car dealer, but is human and enjoyable to work with.  It was sad when we picked up the truck as this leg of the journey with him is over.  The financing was easy with Barb making the payments super cheap at the credit union, although for the rest of my life...  Let me know when you are at your office and I'll bring the finished product by so you can see what all of your hard word helped us get.   I can't thank you enough for all you did to make this work.  Thank you!!!!!!!
David - thank you for connecting me with Darcy.  He was easy to work with, had lot's of helpful resources and make the transition to Lexus fun.  He sold my RAV4 for an OK price and set me up with great financing at a credit union for my new car.  He got me a new Lexus with special options to personalize it.  Everyone he referred me to was pleasant and met my needs.  Again, thank you.

Darcy, I have a wonderful new car thanks to you guys!  I surely appreciate all the work and trouble you went through to get me my "desert sand mica" Camry, with just the options I wanted.  The background details of the dealership communications and the different strategies you were trying for the dealer trade were incredible!  Thank you for all you did.  I will inquire later as to accessories - we want to go through the brochure and get accustomed to the vehicle first.  Thanks again!

Things are great with the new Odyssey and thanks for trackig the minivan down for us. We love the extra space and it's pretty cool to have the DVD player.
Thanks for everything.

I second that - thanks so much Darcy.  The van made our drive down to Iowa this past weekend much more enjoyable and convenient.  Wow - it is so easy to pack up now.  You made the whole process pretty slick once again!

And to save one of the most entertaining stories for last...

We dropped off the truck and got the new Sienna.  Everything went fine and we really like the van.

As a side note I thought you'd enjoy this story:

We pick up the van and return home, planning on going to the state fair later that day.  So around 1:30pm it starts raining like crazy here in EP.  I look at the radar and it appears to me that the storm cloud is going to rain hard and then pass on by in an hour or two, like they usually do with these summer storms. Later on it is still raining but we decide to head to the fair anyway as again it looks like it should keep moving and pass by eventually. Little did I know the rain was going to sit and spin over the entire metro area all night. 

So my pregnant wife, 2yr old daughter, pregnant sister in law, brother in law and 3 yr old nephew all pile in the new van with my wife's parents following us and we all head over to EP mall to take the bus to the fair.  The rain didn't stop so after a pretty lame time at the fair, soaked and tired, we catch the 8pm bus back to the EP mall. 

The story of that motley crew heading to the fair in the pouring rain is ridiculous enough.  Now here's the kicker:

Just as we're getting loaded back into the van, the hail comes... and pretty hard.  At this point I can't even believe it.  I've had the van for literally 9 hours and I'm getting hailed on.  After getting pummeled by pea to marble size hail for a few minutes we manage to pull under a parking garage at the mall (along with swarms of other people trying to escape).  We wait about 10 minutes and it looks like it slows a little and the hail quits so we head for home.  We get a little further and the rain starts coming so hard that other drivers are almost stopping in the middle of the highway - and the hail starts coming again harder than before.  Again, I am stunned that this storm will just not quit and keeps coming at us wave after wave. 

We plow through it with hail clanging off the top of van (all the while I'm teaching the youngsters language they shouldn't know) and stop under the last overpass and last refuge before driving the last unprotected mile to our house.  As I sit there I try not to think about what I'm going to find on the van - if and when we finally get home.  Again after several minutes it lets up a little and the hail appears to stop so we make the final dash for home.  And again the rain gets harder the minute we start going but with only taking a few more hits from small hail we make it into the garage.

Whew.  Unbelievable.  Even more unreal is that it continued on throughout the night and into the morning!  My neighbors that live down the development from me woke up to their back yards transformed into lakes. 

The end to this already too long story is that although it was loud, as far as I could tell today, none of the hail was big enough to do any damage. So nothing hurt but the ears of my nephew due to my inability to restrain myself.  I hope you enjoyed that and I hope you kept out of the way of that storm as well.

Thanks much for all the help, Darcy!  I'll probably be talking to you again in the next 12-18 months if we decided to move our RX300.
