Just wrapped up the most incredible lease experience with Calvin @Calvin.MBFR . He got us a great deal, but more importantly his entire guidance, service, and delivery made the experience spectacular and even surreal.
As background, we were targeting a Q5 lease for my wife for about a month, but weren’t finding the right model/deal with local dealers. In particular, had a very bad experience with a local Audi dealer (not Beverly Hills) that was jerking us around and repeatedly flaking out after we thought the deal was 99% done.
About a week ago, we decided to shift gears and explore the GLC & X3. We test drove both and my wife fell in love with the exterior and interior of the 2020 GLC, especially AMG line. I immediately reached out to Calvin and he was incredible to work with. He guided us in exactly the right direction with options and model years. For example, he suggested we get the 2020 for the newer design and better tech, and the pricing would be comparable to 2019. This is the kind of honest advice that shouldn’t be taken for granted. I’m sure as a salesperson, he would prefer to unload outgoing 2019 models and have an entire year to sell the 2020s.
Calvin found us the perfect, dream model and gave us agressive pricing. Although we got a great deal, the Leasehackr score shouldn’t be obsessed over. You need to find exactly what you want and get the car you love. A few tenths in Leasehackr score doesn’t make a difference in your life/happiness.
After we quickly got a deal (around 1 pm on Saturday), the rest of the experience was a dream. We texted him our info and filled out an easy credit application. We were at home in LA the whole day and enjoying ourselves and running errands. It took a few hours for them to complete the paperwork and get a finance person. After a quick call with the finance person, the deal was done and Calvin arrived at our house in LA (about 60 miles away) with our new car in a couple hours. After a great chat and signatures and he was on his way. Wish we could’ve visited longer, but we had a party to get to.
I can’t overemphasize how quick and easy the whole process was. Revolutionary. I recently did an all-cash purchase at a top dealership in Beverly Hills that was 2x more difficult and time-consuming. And this was a lease!
Now my wife thinks I’m genius and can’t stop talking about how much she loves her car and how great Calvin this. Calvin is the best!
