Before becoming an automotive writer and journalist I spent almost a decade in the retail auto industry, buying and selling new and used vehicles, and managing sales teams.

Buying or selling a vehicle is one of the biggest financial transactions many people get involved with after buying or selling a home. It's important then you get it right, and I'm here to help you out.

Remember, no matter how good you think you are at buying and selling, dealers do it every day of the week, while you probably do it once every few years.

Whether you want to know the best way to finance a new or used car or what you can do to get the most money for your current vehicle, the mission of this website is to help you out.
