How long have you been with Buerkle?

I am very happy to say I have been with the Buerkle organization for 30 years, starting in 1986 as a Buick salesperson. After the first year I transferred to used car sales. Five years later, I became the assistant used car sales manager. In April of 2000 I was given the job of used car manager and remain in that position to the present.

What do you love about working at Buerkle?

I have enjoyed the many years of being a part of a close knit organization. The open door policy that the owners have makes the work environment fun to show up every day.

What is your special expertise?

I believe I am a great advocate for the salespeople. I realize without them we would not sell the vehicles.

I work hard at being a good listener and use common sense when making the decisions I have to make as part of the management team.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I have a wide array of interests, from music to going out to dinner to spending many days at our annual State Fair. All of these things I enjoy doing with my wife of 35 years and my family.  The 9 grandkids have a way of making life very interesting. I am an avid Scuba Diver and enjoy doing underwater photography. I also still have the pleasure of playing on an organized softball team.

I started at Buerkle in 2015. The family atmosphere and good intentions of the people around me are what keep me motivated day after day. We are constantly working to improve and provide the best possible experience, and it’s my privilege to let our customers know about everything we have to offer.

Outside of work you can find me at one of the regional lakes or rivers, up on the North Shore or, inevitably, driving.

I started at Buerkle Honda in December of 2015. I come to Buerkle with over 8 years of selling Hondas at a different Twin Cities dealership. Anyone who looks me up on Google and Dealerrater will see that I take care of my customers better than anyone (I for sure try to!)

I am truly honored that my customers have followed me over to Buerkle. I understand that people buy the salesperson more now than ever and the great experience that I provide for them before, during and after the sale makes the difference. They can buy a car anywhere, but I sincerely believe that the “guy next door” experience my customers get is a long lasting relationship builder!

What I love about Buerkle is we have a group of people that are amazing at taking care of their customers as well as I do. Our managers are there to help customers and salespeople alike. As a customer, you will never run into a manager or salesperson at Buerkle who does not have your best interest in mind.

Out side of work, my family is everything to me. My wonderful wife of 18 years, Patti, is awesome. I have a son Jack, a freshman Student/Basketball player at Lakeville South HS and my little girl Mia is a 4th grade student at JFK. I can not even come close to explaining how much of a lucky guy I am to have a family like I do.

I’m currently beginning my third year here at Buerkle Honda.  My background is in music education and the hospitality industry.  Providing a top notch customer experience has become a passion of mine and working at Buerkle has given me the opportunity to pursue this everyday! My customer service does not end when you make a purchase but continues on throughout your entire ownership of the vehicle. Feel free to call me at any time for assistance.

Outside of work my faith and family keep me busy and living with purpose.  In my free time you will find me spending time in the outdoors, playing the trumpet, cheering on the Gophers, and playing poker.

I have been helping my valued customers with their car purchases at Buerkle since late 2012. I love being able to meet new people, and I get real joy out of helping my guests get the car they want. Car buying can often times be a nuisance and it is exciting to make that process easy and fun.

When I’m not at work I enjoy time with my wife (Stephanie) and 3 kids (Siarah, Gage and Lelaina). We’ve been a Honda Family way before I started selling them! Thanks for considering Buerkle and I look forward to helping you make the best decision for your next vehicle.

I’m a lifelong resident of the Twin Cities and proud to call this area home.
I’ve been working in the car business for over 20 years and know all about how new and used cars are priced, how to find the exact vehicle you want and how financing works.
I love spending time with my family, riding my motorcycle or up north snowmobiling in the winter time. I have three beautiful girls.

What do you love about working at Buerkle?
I’ve been at Buerkle Honda for since 2014 and am looking forward to many more years here – Buerkle is a great place to work. I love being able to sell a superior product in a brand new facility.
It makes my day knowing that when a customer buys a car here they’re getting into a safe, reliable vehicle. I also believe that knowing your product is very important, so when my customers leave the dealership I make sure they’re comfortable and knowledgeable driving their new car.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I grew up in White Bear Lake playing baseball and hockey so I’m still involved in sports.  I also try to spend as much time as I can on the lake with family and friends.

I have been helping customers with one of the most important purchases in their life -a new or pre-owned vehicle – for 9 years. I started here at Buerkle after a 15 year career as a real estate appraiser and never looked back. Helping, guiding and making people happy with their choice gives me satisfaction that I’ve done my job well and my designation of Gold Master in the Honda Council of Sales Leadership proves that my customers feel the same. When I’m not busy at work I enjoy spending time boating on the river, golfing, dining out and watching my kids play hockey and figure skate.

I love working for Buerkle because it’s a privately owned establishment that treats employees as a person and not just a number.

What makes my day is that when a customer buys a vehicle from me, it’s not just a sale but a relationship that will last for years to come. The smiles on their faces make the job more enjoyable. I love knowing I made them happy and that I have helped them shop to find the best vehicle that fits their needs.

My special expertise is make customers comfortable when selecting a vehicle. I am laid back and easygoing and take the pressure off customers. I like to lay out options rather than make a customer feel they are stuck with just one option. Every customer knows when they will buy a vehicle; I’m just here to assist through the process.

Outside of work, I like to exercise and stay in shape. I love the outdoors and try to spend most of my time being in the sun. I like to travel and on my down time I like writing a script or a story to fill my imagination.

I am proud to say that I have been the Buerkle Customer Service manager for nearly 30 years. I was hired in 1988 to follow up with our customers after service and to see if sales shoppers had gotten all the help and information that they felt they needed. My duties and titles may have changed over the years but my primary focus has not.

Being a part time employee, I was afforded the flexibility to raise four children and now that joy has doubled, being grandma of eight.

Please reach out to me if you have any feedback about your customer service experience! I would love to hear from you.
