I have been married for 28 years and we have two children and our first wonderful grandchild. In my spare time, I enjoy in going to the family lake cabin at Maple Lake. I don't get to watch much TV, but always enjoy a good UND hockey game. My favorite thing about working here are the people that I support. I've never run into a better group of employees at a car store than I have with Valley Imports. My favorite quote for the company is "It is the policy of Valley Imports to conduct our business with integrity and efficiency, towards the goal of providing quality products and service to our customers". In our line of business to many customers have been taken advantage of, and it does not make sense to me. If you want to build a business and build customer loyalty, you need to treat people well, charge a fair price for your products and services, be honest, and when you make a mistake, admit it and fix it. The only problems I worry about are those that I don't know about, so if you ever have any issues with a pre-owned vehicle purchased at Valley Imports, please let me know about it and we will make it right!
