Greg is extremely focused on making sure we have ... good, high quality, low mileage pre-owned Audis. Greg and his team work very hard to make these cars available to clients all over the US by getting these cars online as quickly as possible.

This month, Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta was proud to accept the award from Audi USA for selling more Certified Pre-Owned Audis than any other Audi dealer in the US in 2009. General Manager, Tracie Dean credits her team, the Jim Ellis culture, and the quality of the Audi product for her success.

It is no secret that 2009 was a tough year for the automotive industry. It was a tough year economically for just about everyone, but the credit crunch, and the flailing US automakers cast a particularly bleak shadow over the auto markets nationwide. Atlanta, too, saw job losses, and a defunct GM plant in Doraville still waits for resale and zoning.

But the outlook was not completely bleak for everyone. Some people still want to buy cars, and larger numbers of people were buying used cars than ever before. Naturally, if buyers are looking for an affordable luxury vehicle, they are also going to want the quality and guarantees that come with a dealer-certified pre-owned car or SUV. And of course, the savvy buyer wants to look for a dealership with all of the credentials to stand by their certified pre-owned vehicles.

Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta is an ongoing member of the elite Audi “Magna Society”, which means that this dealership sets the standard in customer service, customer satisfaction and strong business practices. “Magna Society is a measurement of the best of the best Audi dealers in the USA.” says Dean, “I am extremely proud of my team for achieving this award for 4 years in a row!!”

Dean gives her Pre-Owned Sales manager, Greg Townsend, a great deal of the credit for their record year in 2009. “Greg is extremely focused on making sure we have the right mix of good, high quality, low mileage pre-owned Audis. Greg and his team work very hard to make these cars available to clients all over the US by getting these cars online as quickly as possible.”

“We check each vehicle against a 300+ Point Certified from the Audi, including things like tire wear and the overall upkeep of the engine.” says Townsend, “and we are careful to only buy and sell the best Audis for our CPO program. These cars do not just have to meet the Audi Certified Standards, but also the Jim Ellis standards.”

The other thing that Dean says she banks on for record sales is the Jim Ellis culture. “Atlanta knows what the Ellis name stands for.” She says. “This company is based on giving our customers as much information about the vehicle purchase process as possible. It’s a pleasure to work for a family that values honesty, and to see those values pay off.”

“Tracie and her team at Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta continually set a high bar of performance for themselves as well as the rest of the Jim Ellis family of dealerships,” says Jimmy Ellis, vice President and COO of the Jim Ellis Automotive Group. “To achieve the prestigious Audi Magna Society award as consistently as they have speaks volumes of their commitment to excellence. I’m very proud they are part of the Jim Ellis Automotive team.”

While the Jim Ellis Automotive group is a household name for most Atlantans, Thrashers fans might be even more familiar with the name of Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta, thanks to their “green moments” and sponsorship of the 2010 home games. The promotion with the Thrashers will run through March 25, 2010, culminating in the giveaway of a clean diesel Audi A3 TDI during Green Week at Philips Arena. Contestants can enter to win the free 2- year lease on the TDI at Thrashers games, and via the Thrashers website.
