Santa Fe Auto Showcase is a hands-on Boutique Dealership that buys and sells only the very best pre-owned vehicles. We handle no more than twenty to thirty vehicles at one time and sometimes may decrease that to a lesser number in order to keep control of the quality of our inventory. In addition to offering a variety of cars that we pre-select, we also offer an auto locator service to assist clients in finding that special vehicle they have been looking for. Note that we are also new car brokers, allow us to give you a price on a new vehicle of your choice. We market our inventory both on the Internet and from our showroom at 3201 Rufina Street in Santa Fe, NM.
In order to insure only the best in customer service, a call to Santa Fe Auto Showcase will usually be answered by the owners, Paul and Susan Proestos. “We personally take care of you, one on one, and work to accommodate your schedule”. An associate will be assigned to you after you speak with Paul or Susan and decide mutually to do so. We strive for perfection in all that we do for you, which we feel works best in a small operation such as ours. We have found that in larger dealerships, it becomes very difficult to retain the quality control that we demand. We conduct a search for inventory, and price our vehicles using very specific criteria.
1. Car Fax and AutoCheck We scrutinize each vehicle's CarFax and AutoCheck report to make sure it has never been in an accident nor has any other issues of concern. Every one of our vehicles comes with a CarFax and AutoCheck report that our customers can study and keep once the vehicle is purchased. Both reports are also available complimentary on our website for our potential customers to view free of charge or print before they approach buying the vehicle. The entire vehicle history is at your command to enable our customers to make the correct decisions without wasting their valuable time. We offer both reports as they can represent and report different issues.
2. Service Records Another important criteria is the extent of the vehicle's service records. We prefer to offer you one-owner vehicles with complete service records. We do not sell cars whose service history cannot be traced back to its origin. If, however, we find an exceptional vehicle and see a clean trail of service records that indicate the vehicle was well maintained, we will consider a vehicle that has had more than 1 owner.
3. Appraisal Every vehicle comes with an independent appraisal by a qualified automotive source such as Kelley Blue Book, NADA and CarFax History-Based Value. This eliminates the guesswork in our vehicle pricing, both for cars we sell and for cars that customers bring in to trade. Before a vehicle is finally added to our inventory, it undergoes our very strict multi-point inspection. If it needs service, maintenance or parts replacement, we do it, simple as that. We choose to work only with professional ASE certified automotive experts that specialize in their chosen field of interest. As a result of the inspection and correction process, we insure that our customers can enjoy their purchase from the first day, without a concern.
In addition to insuring mechanical integrity, we detail each vehicle from the engine compartment to the interior/exterior. If paintwork is needed to repair minor scratches or blemishes, we do it. Each vehicle is pristine before it is offered for sale. Customers are welcome to view all historical service records, as well as those initiated by Santa Fe Auto Showcase to prepare the vehicle for sale. All previous and current service records along with the CarFax and AutoCheck are given to our customers in a prepared folder to keep and add to for the duration that they own the vehicle. Copies of all the service records also remain with Santa Fe Auto Showcase.
We encourage potential buyers to have our vehicles inspected by their own trusted mechanic or repair shop. We even go the extra mile and will reimburse your pre-inspection fee if the vehicle is not what we say it is. We know each vehicle will sell itself.
Paul's experience with the automotive industry is very extensive and the only career he has been involved with in 40 years of business. Paul owned dealerships in New York before relocating to Santa Fe 10 years ago with his wife, Susan. Susan has recently retired from 30 years in Executive Hospitality to assist Paul in their business. Paul loves NFL, Soccer and keeping fit which is good as Susan loves cooking, baking and gardening. Both are involved in their church, St Elias The Prophet Greek Orthodox Church in Eldorado. "We came to Santa Fe and now call it our home. This is our community and our customers are our neighbors. We are here for you.
