“Cartelligent reduced the stress in car buying for me. As a single, mature woman, I needed to bounce ideas off another person. Justin is learned in the car industry and was invaluable when I asked numerous questions in my car search He was never condescending and was an active good listener. I always felt that what I requested or asked about was acknowledged and validated.”
