Manage episode 302826231 series 2798799
This week on the Millionaire Car Salesman Podcast, Sean V. Bradley, CSP interviews Karen Rodriguez, the Director of Operations at Doral Automotive Group, a 3 rooftop automotive group in southern Florida. Their first store, Doral Lincoln in Doral, FL, is the 3rd largest volume Lincoln dealership in the nation. This location paved the way for their growth, and two and a half years ago they purchased Ford of Kendall in Palmetto Bay, FL.
Since then, Karen and her team turned the store into one of the top 50 Ford dealerships in the nation. Then, less than a year ago, Doral Automotive Group opened their third location, Lincoln of Cutler Bay in South Miami Heights, FL. Today, the three stores combine to sell about 800 - 900 vehicles each month.
Joining them on today’s interview is Kelly Koliopulos, the Sr. Director of Sales for CallSource, as a subject matter expert on CallSource’s call tracking, lead management, and business analytic solution. They discuss how CallSource became Karen’s secret weapon and helps her automotive group sell an additional 60 units per month and generate over $5 million in additional revenue each year.
