Michael's expertise is in implementing a successful business model for dealerships, anchored in creating an unsurpassed customer experience with luxury and exotic cars.  In short, he has a passion for serving customers.

Michael speaks four languages including Italian and Portuguese.  He has fallen in love with Santa Fe and is calling it home.  The following testimonial speaks volumes about what he brings to the Santa Fe community:

 

"Years ago, I came to [a dealership where Michael worked] in search of a second car only to discover that they were already closed for the day. Michael saw me looking into the window and with great enthusiasm, invited me into the showroom. Everyone was gone for the day and I was very reluctant to come inside out of respect for his personal time but Michael was warm and inviting on a cold winter day. I came back later and ended up purchasing a vehicle that gave me great pleasure for years to come. It certainly comes as no surprise to read about his new venture, and to see that Michael embraces the concept of balancing socio-cultural objectives with financial objectives. Good for you sir!! I continue to be a huge fan!!"
