I’ve bought and sold a car to @oarfish18 and the experience was exceptional. I’ll say yes she gets busy and is sometimes hard to reach. But that’s because she’s hustling and taking care of the clients in front of her.
Sorry you had a bad experience. Misunderstanding I’m sure. But trust me it wasn’t an intentional bait and switch. Just an honest mistake. Glad you were able to find a vehicle you liked regardless. Enjoy your new car.
I second this. I worked with @oarfish18 before and the service was exceptional. I did briefly consider the EQ and reached out to her and I realized she was busy, but despite that, the communication was always clear, frank and no BS.
I have nothing but mad respect for her
Worked with her. Traded car, leased one. Got better numbers than originally sent - I guess they are a little fluid. Overall glad we have a dealer in the area who is LH friendly. She is a bit inconsistent with her response speed
I’ll also chime in… leased my first ever Mercedes with oarfish. She’s easily the sharpest internet sales person I’ve ever encountered. She’s probably working 6+ deals at the same time all day. She’s a walking lease calculator and isn’t afraid of LH-aggressive lease targets since she knows what is on the table and what isn’t. So you’ll know in a matter of minutes if a deal can be done.
She’s most no-frills sale I’ve personally experienced or witnessed (I used to work corporate auto in sales finance).
I think one problem is the dealership she’s at has like 300 in stock new cars and 100 cpo. So it’s too easy to get down a rabbit hole of what-if options. Some buyer can easily say “what is the DAS and monthly on this car” then suddenly pivot to “what about the deal on this other car”.
I have not bought the car from @oarfish18 but so far my interaction with her has been good.
Yeah, i haven’t bought car from @oarfish18 either (couple of cars she posted got taken before me… it sucked that it happened 5 minutes into posting) but i did like her directness. She didn’t beat around the bush.
The other issue is that while they have a lot of stock, the website is hopelessly out of date, so people are looking at cars that are already gone.
Seconded about working with oarfish. We all say we want dealers to work with leasehackers openly and honestly without BS, well that is what she does. She openly posts prices better than most brokers on this site. We appreciate you!
thank you so much for all of your kind words and support on this forum. Truly have been so grateful for it.

EQB300 is at a pretty good price, even lower than EQB250. I wish I could wait ~2 months back in July.
Oarfish is the real deal. I leased an EQS 450 from her and got an amazing deal. She is a busy bee and sometimes you have to be patient.
It was scary to do a deal via text. But once I arrived in person all the numbers remained the same. and I closed that day.
She’s the only call I’ll make for my next Mercedes.
I met oarfish today, and she’s every bit as awesome as she seems. I had ordered an EQE SUV from my local dealer back in January, and when it finally arrived last Tuesday they quoted me some… eyebrow-raising rates. On Wednesday I found this forum, on Thursday I texted Oarfish about three cars I was interested in, she returned quotes the same day. I should have done the test-drive on Fri/Sat but life got in the way.
Instead today (Tuesday) I test-drove my favourite EQS580 of the three and brought it home a couple of hours later, leaving them my W213 as a trade-in, and all for significantly lower monthlies and upfront than my local clowns were asking for a car with msrp 2/3rds of this one! Everything was super smooth. Thanks, Oarfish!
But y’all, try to be prepared when you work with busy folks. I had pulled down the nationwide inventory of EQS580s, filtered it down to the 80 cars that had the options I wanted before I contacted anyone, and it made it really easy to see who had the cars I was interested in. If more dealers had a presence on here I might have shopped around more But instead my first text to oarfish on Thursday included the VIN of the car I wound up bringing home today, and her second text back to me on that same Thursday contained the exact price that I paid today. It felt good!
Do you have any Amg Eqe Suvs?
Oarfish made my entry into an electric car and lease process the best experience possible! She communicated clearly through text and had no surprises with pricing and the process the entire time. Without hesitation I would recommend her for anyone that’s in the market.
Leasing a car is often a big decision in one’s life, and my experience with Chau at Mercedes-Benz was nothing short of exceptional. It was back in June of 2019 when I first walked into the dealership, and Chau, who was relatively new to Leasehackr at the time, became my point of contact. I must say, this review is long overdue, but it’s important to share the outstanding service I received.
From the very beginning, Chau stood out as a beacon of professionalism and honesty in a world where car dealerships are often associated with tricks and hidden fees. What truly set her apart was her straightforward approach. She didn’t beat around the bush or engage in any unnecessary sales tactics. She told me exactly what she could offer, and that’s precisely what I got when I arrived at the dealership. No games, no surprises—just a transparent and straightforward transaction.
At the time, I was a 20-year-old, fresh-faced and eager to lease my very first car. Needless to say, I was nervous about the process. However, Chau’s expertise and guidance made it a seamless and reassuring experience. She patiently walked me through every step, ensuring that I understood the terms and conditions of the lease, as well as the intricacies of the vehicle I was about to acquire.
Chau’s dedication to her customers is truly commendable. She not only secured me an excellent deal but also provided me with peace of mind during a pivotal moment in my life. It’s often said that the first car you lease is a milestone, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this journey.
So, I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to Chau for being amazing at what she does. Her commitment to transparency, her friendly demeanor, and her ability to navigate the complex world of car leasing with ease make her a true asset to Mercedes-Benz and a trusted partner for anyone looking to lease a car. Chau, you made my first car leasing experience memorable for all the right reasons, and I’m forever grateful for your guidance and professionalism. Here’s to you, Chau, and to the outstanding service you provide to your customers. Thank you!
Damn I didn’t even finish the query yet and chatgpt killed the response.
(I’m sure these are real experiences but couldn’t help it; the writing style is blurring lines for me)
What is the additional monthly on the 500 and 580 (sedan if it matters) for 10K, and 12K?
