~ I literally try as hard as I can to make every buying experience as fun, unique and informative as I possibly can. On Average…I receive 100+ emails and 40+ phone calls per day (7 days per week) and only 15% of those numbers are from prospective clients…the other 85% are Corvette enthusiasts looking for assistance in one way or another for their Corvette. As a Corvette enthusiast for 39+ years I enjoy helping every one…because it’s fun for me. I truly want all my clients to be 100% Completely Satisfied. Reality is not everyone’s expectations can be met and as hard as I try I know which folks I can never win over. I’m human and the 1 or 2 folks this happens with per year gets me down but it won’t stop me from helping everyone. So Corvette brethren…keep calling and emailing and thank you for doing so. You can also follow my delivery videos on my Facebook page CorvetteFurman.
~Anthony H. of Whitefish, Montana called me up last week seeking a Black Z06 with Black wheels and 7spd manual trans. I had exactly what he wanted in our 140 total new Corvette inventory. I appraised his 2015 Lexus F Sports Cpe with 8k miles over the phone and he made an appt. this week to drive away in his very first Corvette. He chose wisely! Here in Anthony’s own words.." I spent weeks looking for a 2017 Z06. I visited/called almost every major Corvette dealer in the Country. I met a lot of really good people but Mike Furman is BY FAR the hardest working, most knowledgeable and talented salesman I have EVER had the pleasure of working with! Thank you so much Mike! You’re a rock star!!" Anthony H.
