    810-695-4400

    I started in the business 15 years ago as a Receptionist and quickly moved up to the Finance Office, where I work to guide clients through an easy and enjoyable car-buying process.  When a client leaves my office excited about their new car, it is the highlight of my job.

    When it comes to purchasing your vehicle, I make every effort to provide the best experience possible.  From offering the lowest interest rate available to making you knowledgeable of all of your options, my goal isn't to make a one-time sale; it's to make you a customer for life.

    Outside of the office, my husband, Greg, our daughter and I enjoy family excursions to our cabin up north.  We also spend most of our free time with family and friends (entertaining one 4-year-old in particular, our daughter, Savanna!)

    I look forward to seeing you at Grand Blanc Motorcars!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have!

  • Margaret Martin, Internet Sales Manager
    810-695-4400

    I have worked in the automotive dealership industry for over 20 years now. Here at Grand Blanc Motorcars for 5 years. Most of my time has been spent is the Accounting and Finance areas of the dealership and now I head the Internet Department. This new position has brought new challenges and excitement to both my professional and personal life.


    When I am not working, I like to spend time with my very large family. This includes my parents, numerous brothers and sisters, tons of nieces and nephews and most importantly, my daughter. My daughter and I enjoy traveling and are able to visit quite a few places with the family spread across the USA. I also enjoy participating in the Crim Festival of Races held every year in downtown Flint, volunteering at the hospital, painting and enjoying the great outdoors.

    I am very much a people person and Grand Blanc Motorcars has given me the opportunity to interact with people and help them with the purchase of a great BMW, Mercedes or Toyota.

    I was born and raised in Grand Blanc. Worked at my mom's ice cream shop that many around Grand Blanc know Ziggy's Ice Cream. I went to trade school right after high school and started with Dee Cramer after, did that for about three years. Most all of my family's been in the car business so I figured it's something I always wanted to try, went to Randy Wise for six months, then got an offer here I could not refuse.


    Most of my free time is with my family up north and boating. When it comes down to football season GO BLUE! I love the outdoors, traveling, and seeing new places.

    I've been around this town my whole life. My mom has a small business in the community and is very involved and I also help her with it. I love to meet new faces and keep on helping people and hey, when you see me at Grand Blanc Motorcars I give free ice cream for every visit!

    For more then two decades I have found fulfillment in the automobile industry.  I started in 1984 and have enjoyed it ever since.  The challenges of helping someone find the right vehicle and all that it entails have become a real comfort zone for me.  The excitement on a person's face as they take delivery and the confidence earned when they return to me for their future purchases or service needs is priceless.  Here at Grand Blanc Motorcars we pride ourselves in just that confidence.   Our brands are of the highest quality and so are our people.  These things make it a joy to be at work. 

    When I am not working, I find real grounding with my beautiful wife, Maria, and our two wonderful children.  Our children are not little anymore and have established themselves into adults with fulfilling careers of their own.  Our son, Ryan, is a professional photographer.  And our daughter, Nicole, is an acclaimed architect in the country of Dubai. 

    It is my personal goal to help you find your perfect vehicle, and I look forward to seeing the excitement that it brings!

    I have been in sales and customer service for over 20 years and have recently joined the Grand Blanc Motorcars team. The hometown atmosphere and family values have been very welcoming to me and I am sure you will feel the same. I look forward to many years here providing great service to my guest.


    I have lived in the Genesee County area most of my life and raised my son here. He now lives in Washington D.C. after graduating from the University of Michigan. This has left me with plenty of time on my hands. I use this time to enjoy the outside and all nature has to offer. Gardening is something I truly enjoy. I also like traveling the state and exploring new areas.

    I believe that great customer service is what should be expected and not the exception to the rule. When you come to Grand Blanc Motorcars I want you to feel like a guest in my home. I look forward to earning your trust and make you a part of our family.

    810-695-4400

    I have been working in the automotive industry for the last 2 1/2 years.  I started at Grand Blanc Motorcars as the car porter, and soon found myself getting to know our customers by name and vehicle, as well as I learned a lot about the vehicles we sell, by being the person that stocked in the cars as they were delivered. I got involved with Sales because I enjoy meeting new people.  I, also, enjoy being around the automotive industry.

    I will do anything to make sure I get the customers business.  By that I mean I will work as hard as necessary to get my customer the best price, great service, and have an ongoing good relationship that will last through the years and through their next new vehicles.  As a Sales Consultant for Grand Blanc Toyota I feel confident that I am selling the best automotive product that I can.

    810-695-4400

    I've been in the automotive service business for over 28 years, as a service advisor.  Over those 28 years, I have learned that when it comes to purchasing a new vehicle, customers aren't just looking for the right car, they are looking for the right person and dealership to service all of their automotive needs.  Here at Grand Blanc Motorcars, we firmly believe in the value of a strong relationship between the customer and the Service Department.  Our goal is to foster that trust, and leave customers confident that we are here to take care of them and their car. 

    I like to treat my service clients like that are family because that is how we  here at Grand Blanc Motorcars treat each other everyday.  Welcome to the family, and I hope to see you soon!

    From a young age I was fascinated by vehicles.  I took Automotive classes in High School as a Freshman and Sophmore, eventually working my way up to actually Teaching the class my Senior year.  I then attended MSU (Go Green!), for two years, where I continued my Automotive education.  I continue to love all the challenges that come with the Automotive business. 

    When I am not here at the dealership, I enjoy spending time with my wife of  23-years, Graciela, our five children, and our 16 grandchildren.  I also spend time everyday thinking of our son, Ricky, who is now in Heaven, after passing away at the young age of 25-years-old.  I take the grandchildren Hunting, Fishing, and boating.  Graciela and I spend a lot of time gardening, cutting trees, and chopping wood.  When I have some time alone, I enjoy watching old western shows. 

    My simple philosophy is to treat others the way I would want to be treated.  That is why when you come and see me in the Parts Department, for Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, or Sprinter parts I will be sure to give you a fair price and great service.  I look forward to seeing you at Grand Blanc Motorcars.

    Since breaking into the automotive industry in February of 2015, I have had nothing but great experiences. Through years of retail customer service it was imperative I treated every customer like I would want to be treated. This created a strong sense of honesty and integrity that I consider the best part of my character in and out of work. I always liked the phrase, "you have to take a leap of faith and the trust comes after." It is so important to me that I prove this to every customer that walks into the dealership. I have a feeling it will be critical to my success in the car industry because you know I will keep you informed without bias to help make the best decision possible.


    Outside of work I like to spend time outdoors. My favorite activities are fishing and golfing. The thing I like most about fishing is flipping my canoe and chasing after my gear. Perhaps it's untying fly knots on the side of the river, while watching fish surface in front of me. It may be an act of contrition but I still enjoy it. I won't say much about golf because I'm not quite sure why I keep playing. It sure isn't the 18th hole that keeps me coming back!
