This year marked sales associate
Hildebrandt's 21st year putting people
in their dream vehicles at
Safford of
Warrenton. A gift for sales must run
in Bill's blood--he's been at it since he
was nine years old, earning extra money
cutting neighbors' lawns and then selling
wares door-to-door as a teenager.
Bill says his principal sales philosophy
is simple: "Don't just sell the car. Build
relationships," he says. "If you truly
care about people,
the rest falls into
place." With this
approach to sales,
he says, customers
become part of a
larger "car family"
that benefits from
all the perks of a
healthy relationship,
l i k e t r u s t a n d
In addition to the
relationships he
builds with families
and individuals,
about 40% of Bill's
business at Safford
is in commercial
sales. Every week, he works with small
businesses and contractors to find the
right trucks they need for specialized
projects. Between both sides of his
sales role, Bill's mailing list has grown
over the years to include about 2,000
people. Throughout the year, he takes
the time to address cards by hand as a
way to stay in touch with all the members
of his car family.
As one would expect, Bill has learned a
great deal about himself and others after
two decades in his career. "Approaching
every sale with the goal to be helpful
allows people realize their ability to afford
the car they've always wanted," he says.
"Nothing is more important to me than
making sure every member of the car
family is happy. They are the reason I
can continue doing what I love. And I
hope the family continues to grow."
One of Bill's greatest pleasures is seeing
generations of families come through the
dealership doors. "I remember parents
bringing their children in to buy them
their first car, and now I'm working with
their grandchildren," he shares.
Whether you want to investigate a car
that has caught your eye, arrive already
knowing what you want, or you're simply
getting your vehicle serviced, Bill and his
easygoing nature make for a wonderful
experience from start to finish. Safford
works with banks and lending institutions
to help customers stick to a comfortable
monthly payment for a car that meets their
needs and exceeds their expectations.
Since leasing or
buying a car is
a c onsiderable
financial decision
that can create
pressure for car
buyers, Bill and
t h e d e a l e r s h i p
staff always work
t o c r e a t e a n
atmosphere of ease
and enjoyment for
all patrons. "This is
not a high-pressure
place, which is
why it's a good fit
for me and for my
customers," he
says. "When people
walk through the door, the staff here
wants to do the best we can to help them.
I have found that clear communication
makes everyone happy in the end."
If you happen to be in the market for a
new vehicle, Bill is excited to talk about
several new and newly redesigned cars
on the lot, including the new Dodge Ram
1500, a truck that he calls "a beautiful
work of technology, style, and function."
The Jeep Wrangler JL has upped its
technology game and is more user-
friendly than ever, and after the first of
the year, the dealership will also have
the newest Jeep Wrangler pickup truck
available. And if you're looking for a
car for your growing family, you might
want to take a look at the Chrysler
Pacifica, a minivan with plenty of room
to stretch and seats that fold flat into
the floor to accommodate luggage,
sports equipment, and the spoils of
Christmas shopping. To learn more,
