Meet Your Auto Ambassador:  Trent Murphy

Ever since I can remember, I have had an interest in cars and trucks. Fast. Old. New. Classic, Luxury. I lived on a farm growing up so I started driving at a very young age. My first car, however, was purchased when I was fourteen. Once I was in college, I started buying the next newest thing I could afford and sometimes traded them too often…not because I did not like the one I had but because I liked something else better. I always lost money and the dealer made money. I didn’t have wholesale equity. People always ask me what my favorite car is…. “It’s the next one.”

I have owned a variety of cars over the years and have enjoyed them all. However, one thing I did not like was the wheeling and dealing that seemed to be required to get the best price for the trade, the lowest price for the new car, or just the spread between the trade and new car. I also spent a lot of time searching from one car lot to another. When the internet came along, I began searching all night long from one site to the next. I loved it. I learned more and more about cars that held the most value, had the longest warranties, and had the least maintenance difficulties.

Recently, I have had to search for cars for our children. Many friends were also looking at the same time but seemed to settle for less than what they were looking for both in cost and quality due to the lack of time that they had to search. Thus, I decided to get my dealer’s license in February 2017 and help friends and family get wholesale equity.
