Default A long overdue post - Porsche Fresno

A while ago I cold called CJ Wilson. I have been following him on Rennlist and decided to offer him to buy some of my GTs. What followed was one of the best experiences with Porsche dealer I had. CJ offered fair prices for my cars and has found and offered fantastic trades. One of his sales guys Andy Truswell worked with me very patiently and overnighted all the documents, dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's. I am on the East cost and cars were in multiple locations, but CJ and his team have flawlessly coordinated all the pickups and deliveries (trade in) as well as the document flow.
One of the cars I have sold to CJ was a 981 Spyder. A few months in I had a seller's remorse and asked CJ to sell me back my Spyder. CJ was amused, but understood and asked if I'd rather have a different Spyder. I said that mine was perfect and the only thing better would be one in PTS. Lo and behold - CJ offered an immaculate Mexico Blue Spyder

I am a huge fan of 911R and for a while I was hunting for a PTS one. The only ones I have been able to find though were in some very strange light green colors. While it may be a good color on some other models I did not like it on 911R
So there I go again and ask CJ if he has heard of something on the market. Next thing I know he sends me the picture of the Mexico Blue 911R - a perfect match for the Spyder. CJ does not have the car. A private party owns it and thinks about selling it. So CJ goes ahead an connects me directly with the seller. Not only CJ does it for free he offered to CPO the car for me and found a blazing fast and reliable transportation to get the car to East coast.

There are some horror stories on Rennlist dealing with unprofessional and unscrupulous dealers. CJ and his team in Porsche Fresno stand in stark contrast to that. They know the business, value the customer and go that extra mile that is the difference between a good and a truly exceptional experience!

Congratulations and great story with a positive ending. CJ has a huge following due to his positive, humble attitude. He is a great addition to Porsche Dealerships.

Thank you Eric!

I guess I feel the need to just "be different" and my team here has been super enthusiastic to the process.

Next step is growing our PTS color combo!!

Wow, congrats on picking up both PTS cars...awesome. Not surprising that you had a great experience with CJ...he's had the good fortune to meet him and done business with him. Probably one of the best good guy dealers out there. I'm doing all that I can to help him grow his dealership so that he can get more GT cars. People who do business the right way should be rewarded with more business.
