Sam's Stellar Customer Service
Ryan was exceptionally helpful. He is likeable, very smart, and he maintained continual contact with us (yet never in an annoying way) - PSRyan was very patient, absolutely UN-pushy and completely straightforward about supplying all the info I needed to make an informed purchase. While he freely offered an opinion if I asked for one, I never got the feeling he was trying to sell me anything...which is pretty remarkable for a car dealer. As a mature female customer, I found hisnatural professionalism unusual and very refreshing.MM, Bearsville
Jenn is from Amherst, MA and has a degree in Marketing from Western New England University. She now lives in Kingston, but still loves the Patriots... (sigh). Away from Ruge's Jenn loves running, her rescue dogs, and enjoying the outdoors in the Hudson Valley.
Jordan, the newest addition to our team, was born in Rhinebeck, and attended Our Lady of Lourdes.
He worked part-time for his family's local Insurance Company, Palmiter Benefits Group, and also worked for UnitedHealthCare.
He is currently a part-time student at DCC.
Jordan has a passion for animals, the outdoors, cars and helping others. He has two cats and a dog and spends most of his down time with his family and friends at the lake in Vermont or at Long Beach.
Jordan was fantastic. If it weren't for him, we probably would have bought from another dealership. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and stayed overtime on two occasions. SA
Jordan was knowledgeable, friendly, and did not possess the "pushiness" that has led to me walking away from other dealers.
Jordan Palmiter wonderful. Friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. I felt like he wanted to help me find a car not close on a sale but so I would be satisfied and happy as a customer and young driver. He took the time to find a car that would fit my dog and set up my bluetooth. He truly shines!
Jordan was warm, personable, highly informed, listened to me when I told him what I wanted, and had several suggestions. I love the car I ended up with and I know he is there to help me any time I need as there are many new technologies in my new car. VS
Jordan was a pleasure to deal with: the opposite of a pushy, high-pressure salesman, which is way more persuasive, as far as I'm concerned. Instead, he was attentive, helpful, responsive & thoughtful. GF
