Ron Barber Holz Motors

A customer review of Holz Motors and of sales consultant Ron Barber

By Aaron S. Robertson

Recently, I purchased a 1988 Lincoln Town Car from Holz Motors in Hales Corners. Yes, you read that right. See, I absolutely love the Lincoln brand, especially the big boats of the 70s. I once owned a 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V. I blame my fascination with Lincolns on watching too many mob movies growing up as a kid. Cadillac? Fuhgeddaboudit!

It seemed like it was a match made to happen. I was driving down S. 108th Street (Hwy. 100), about to head to the gas station to fill up my '09 Lincoln MKZ, and there she was, parked on the corner of the lot where Hwy. 100 and Janesville Road meet, where all the world could clearly see her. The car caught my eye right away, and instead of heading to the gas station, I immediately turned into the lot. I got out of my car, started my walk-around inspection, and that's when sales consultant Ron Barber came out to talk with me.

Ron told me the story behind the car. It was purchased brand new at the old Cherek Lincoln-Mercury dealership on S. 27th Street in Milwaukee. One owner - a couple in their 90s that had done business with Holz for many years. The husband had recently passed away, and there simply wasn't a need any longer for the vehicle. The wife didn't think twice about where to go with it. The body was in solid shape, the interior looked brand new, and everything was mechanically-sound. Very low mileage. It spent its time down in Arizona all these years, so it never knew winter. I knew it had to be mine.

Ron and I worked out our deal, and what I really appreciated about him and the team at Holz was the level of patience, understanding, and dignity I was shown. See, this was an off-the-cuff purchase for me, and I didn't readily have the cash sitting around for it. A lot of it was locked up in investments and such. So it took about a week, a week and a half or so, for the cash to start coming together to make this happen. And Ron and the team were there every step of the way for me. They saw the look in my eyes when I realized that car had to be mine. A simple $100 held the car for me while I worked to line everything up.

I highly recommend you start with Holz Motors for your next vehicle purchase, and in particular, I recommend sales consultant Ron Barber. He is truly a class act. I later realized that he had sold my folks a Buick in recent years, and they appreciated their experience with him, as well.

Within a few days of driving the car off the lot, an envelope arrived in the mail for me. Ron had sent me all the original paperwork he had on the vehicle - original sales receipt, options price list, etc. What a cool throwback in time to see some of this stuff.

Go see Holz Motors, and ask for Ron Barber.
