Eluid Villarreal

 Hello my name is Eliud Villarreal!

I was born in Oklahoma City in 1990 and raised in Yukon my whole life. I graduated from Yukon high school in 2009 and then attended OSU-OKC to become a criminal justice major.

While going to college I began a job at Joe Cooper Ford of Yukon as a car salesman after asking the manager what sort of credentials you needed to work there and all he said was that I just needed to apply. At the same time they hired 10 other sales people to see who was best fit to continue with the job.

I was fortunate enough to be one of the top two that they selected. After a few months of being in the car business I realized that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life so I changed my major in college to business. Selling cars came very easy to me because I was passionate about what I was doing, I was infatuated with cars and my customers could tell so that positivity turned into sales. Not to mention that people preferred to buy from a younger salesman that didn’t have the stereo type of a older typical used car salesman. I worked for the Cooper auto group for five years before being let go. I then took some time off to myself to reflect on if staying in the car business was the way to go.

I decided to get a job at Fowler Honda as a used car manager. I realized very quickly that I didn’t have the passion that I once had due to the fact that for the most part Hondas are basic transportation other than a few models that are very unique. So after three months I took the used car position at Metro Ford. After a year of working there I got the opportunity to go work for an awesome group of people out at Carter Chevrolet in Okarche as the finance Director/ Used Car Manager.

It was right before going to Carter that I was at a crossroads on whether or not I wanted to stay in the business. I was just getting tired of the typical dealership lifestyle of working super long hours and dealing with the image that most people had about car dealerships. Carter was different, they were family oriented, family owned and were growing so I enjoyed being a part of their story. At the beginning of 2018 my brother-in-law Braiden and now business partner had the idea to start an exotic car dealer. I didn’t think he was serious until he began to send me places to lease.

In summary at the beginning it was not something that I wanted to do just because of the fear of being in business on your own and the possibility of not having a steady income. However I feel like the Lord laid down opportunities and helped move things into action that made it clear to me that this is what I was called to do. With that being said I now see that he uses our platform to help reach car enthusiasts to come to know him and for that I am forever grateful! We have now been in business for three years and have been blessed to have awesome customers and friends that help us thrive!!
