Rick was the top salesman at Acura of Bellevue, Infiniti of Kirkland and Landmark Motors. Recognizing the ownerships of the dealerships need to make money to stay in business, his philosophy is not to be as concerned about profit as it is about building and maintaining relationships with his customers. He will ensure you drive away feeling good about working with him. As he often says, “Park Place is a local, family run business that allows me to take my relationships with clients beyond simple sales person and customer like you will find at other dealers, and to treat them in a way that makes them feel like part of the Park Place Family, too. We go above and beyond.”
Rick is a graduate of the University of Washington with a bachelor of arts degree in Urban Studies and post graduate teaching degree. He taught school locally for 4 years before moving to commercial real estate where he ran his own company for over 25 years focusing on Puget Sound area properties. He sold that business in 2007 and transferred his business acumen to the auto industry and has been attempting to augment and change the attitude forward ever since.
Rick has owned over 70 vehicles over his life and has owned many of the types of vehicles sold at Park Place Ltd. Owning and driving one of these vehicles, whether a classic or new, is a pleasure and he has the experience to help you select the right vehicle for your needs. Come on in and see him.
