I started selling hybrid cars in 2006.   At first it was just a hobby.  I love cars and I love shopping for them.  So when friends had trouble finding a new Prius, or didn’t want to deal with car dealers, I was happy to help.    It wasn’t long before I realized this could be a business…

I am now a licensed car broker, specializing in hybrid vehicles, and the Prius in particular.  That means I deal directly with the fleet managers at dealerships and locate cars on your behalf, saving you the hassle of searching around for just the car you want at a good price. You can pick up your Prius directly from the Toyota dealership that has it or from our offices in Fremont, CA (whichever is more convenient for you).  Either way, you save yourself the 4 hour dealership ordeal, and get the car you want at a good price.    Usually, the broker fee is paid by the dealership, which is standard practice in the industry.   Occasionally, when market conditions are tight (the car you are looking for is in short supply), you may be asked to pay a small broker fee.

My Philosophy:

Priusfinder.com is my way of sharing knowledge with the community, and yes, promoting my services.    I am not a car salesman.   Car salesmen try to get you to buy one of the cars on their lot so they can meet a sales quota.   I don’t really care which car you buy (although I do believe in the Prius).   I see my job as being your trusted advocate in the car purchasing process.    I’ll listen to your needs and desires and make recommendations.   When you decide what you want, I’ll locate the car for you and negotiate a good price.    I’m here to save you time and money, and make your life easier.     Since 2006, I’ve sold over 300 Prius, both new and pre-owned.  I don’t do any paid advertising and most of my clients come from referrals from happy customers.

Feel free to email or call with questions or to discuss your needs.
