Nice to meet you, we’re Mac James Motors! 

 

Les Bartlett

Position: Internet Sales Manager

I started out with Mac James Motors as a customer. Damaged credit, no chance to get prime financing, and no idea how to make it better. Jason Fry was the Sales Manager who helped me finance my first MJM vehicle.

Then I was hired here at MJM as a Lot Man, (by Jason Fry)…then became a Sales Associate, then the Red Deer Sales Manager and now I work as Internet Sales Manager and have had (and still do) the opportunity to work in many different areas within the company.

Almost 11 years on I’m still here and can attest to the credit rebuilding first hand.

I’ve lived the experience.

Today I have a few toys, a few credit cards in my wallet and a good credit score. My family and I have a more financial security. My phone doesn’t ring with collection agents looking for me. Talk about stress relief!

It didn’t happen overnight, but the fact that I’ve bought 4 vehicles with MJM now and paid the same rates as our clients shows me every day that the process works!

The MJM way is a great way to help rebuild your credit!

1. How long have you been working with MJM? 

10 years 7 months.

2.What kind of car do you drive? 

Dodge Durango and motorcycles.


3. Do you have any pets? Do you let them in your car?
 

Yes a dog and a cat, and yes.


4. Why would you recommend Mac James to your friends and /or family?

6. What’s your favourite car on the lot of your location right now?

7. Do you have any advice or hot tips for folks looking to buy a used car?

    • Types of vehicles/age: Will it hold an end of financing value?
    • Finances: Higher rates with shorter terms are not a bad thing compared to some lower rates over longer terms. Learn about daily interest and how it works!
    • Condition of vehicle: Do your research.

      Know about recalls or TSB’s or accident history/how much will it cost to insure? What are repair costs and parts availability like? What will be its value at the end of your loan term?
