    Sales Consultant

    J.C. has been in the Automotive business since he was 12....(working at his family's dealership). Providing customers with awesome service and a great vehicle is what you can expect from J.C.

    JC was so nice and helpful. He worked hard to accommodate my budget and went above and beyond to make sure that I got my new Jeep how and when I needed it. He's the best! TS 

    We purchased a truck from JC at Ruges. He actually made the experience fun for my son and I. My son bought the truck and JC treated him well as a young man and was honest and informative. Very friendly place, I recommend them.
