    AutoBuyersPro.com - Advocacy – Buyer’s Agent for Car Buyers

  1. Established in 1986
  2. Not a dealer or like a dealer: Licensed to work exclusively for you since 1986
  3. Over 25,000 customers served.

  4. Mission:

    New Cars:
    To provide a price for the vehicle you want that is lower than most anyone could negotiate on their own by eliminating the dealer’s middleman markup (usually $1,500-$3,500), and charging a simple flat fee that is kept separate and transparent from the sale. The fee we charge is a fraction of the normal dealer/buying service’s middleman markup.

    Used Cars:

  5. (1) to help you find the vehicle you want for less money than you would otherwise pay or
  6. (2) to help the buyer find and purchase a better/lower mileage vehicle that meets their requirements than the buyer thought they could afford

  7. Different: Uniquely licensed and bonded to represent the buyer, not a licensed dealer calling itself a “buying service”, “auto broker”, “leasing company” or “club”. Specializing in:

  8. New cars that you buy as if you were the commercial account, not allowing any dealer/broker to add the typical $1,500-$3,500 of markup to the lowest fleet price we secure.
  9. New car leasing: We control the numbers. Therefore the lowest fleet price we can obtain is converted into the lowest lease payment. Everything is done with total transparency.
  10. Used cars: Specializing in finding the highest quality, lowest mileage vehicle you want that stays within your budget. For people with budget of $5,000-$150,000+. Unique scrutinizing process to give you reasons to feel assured that you are buying a truly exceptional vehicle of the highest quality.
  11. Trade ins: We have a process to maximize the real cash value of your trade in, without allowing the dealer to create any illusions by manipulating the price of the car being purchased.
  12. FREE over the phone consultation to discuss your vehicle interest, reliability and safety histories of vehicle’s considered as well as to determine general affordability of desired vehicle.
  13. Let us pre-arrange hassle free test drives at dealers in your area. So right from the start, you do not go out on your own, as we attempt to eliminate the risk of your experiencing an unpleasant start to the process.
