It’s Elms’ 25th year working in the auto industry, and his go-to mantra for making his job work is to take away the stress from the vehicle-buying process and use his power of laughter to keep the customers at ease. 

“If you come to visit me for a vehicle consultation and you don’t leave with a smile, I feel like I haven’t done my job,” Elms said. 

His dedication to ensuring every customer leaves with a smile is a testament to his commitment to making their experience with us as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Furthermore, Brian Elms firmly believes that experience brings a broader perspective, revealing that there are more solutions than problems. Guided by this principle, he navigates challenges that may arrive with confidence, always seeking a way to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.

When asked about his happy day at work, Elms said a productive day means spending time helping people in some constructive way. This approach allows him to build trust and lasting relationships with all our customers.

Life Outside the Dealership 

Outside of his professional life, Elms is a devoted family man who cherishes spending nearly 90 percent of his time with his loving wife, four beautiful children, and a large extended family. His summers are filled with adventure, with time spent at the trailer and various outdoor activities. During winter, he plans at least one trip to warmer climates.

My Dream Car(s)

When working in a car dealership, it’s nearly impossible not to have a dream car. When we asked Elms about his dream car, he said that 20 years ago, he would have dreamed about a Corvette, but as he got older, his more practical side came out. Today, it would have to be the Sierra Denali Ultimate.
