One of my friends had worked with Richie to find his van and he highly recommended him. I’m not sure I would have picked someone off of a website but I trusted my friend. He sure was right! I’ve never felt comfortable buying a car since I’m never sure I’m getting the best deal for my money. Richie was able to find me a late model used Subaru Impreza with all the bells and whistles! He did all the negotiations with the dealer — even for the extended warranty. All I had to do was test drive the car and sign the papers! Working with Richie was an effortless and even enjoyable experience. Proof is that I have told everyone I know about Richie and my boss has already bought a car through him. I will continue to share my great experience with others looking for a car.

When you’re in the market for a new car (or newer), hire Richie! Everything you hate about buying a car, he loves! He knows all the ins & outs as he’s been in the business over 20 years in sales. For a flat fee, he finds what you’re looking for, negotiates the price, arranges financing and more! And just think of all the phone calls you’ll avoid from various salesmen trying to get your business with a car you don’t want! He’s a Gem!

Although driving is a privilege, owning a car is another matter. Finding one can be stressful. The Auto Buying Assistant is your best solution.

I have known Mr. Axelsen for over 20 years. His knowledge of buying, selling and trading cars surpasses any dealerships. I try to “up” him with offers going on in the area and he rises to the occasion by providing me information about the company, the make of the car and other issues occurring behind the scenes. He floors me with amazement. His true knowledge about vehicles makes him FULLY trustworthy! Richie also has the gift of true human qualities.

He shows you great respect, understanding and compassion to your unique situation. He has exceptional concern and genuine care in regards to your needs and lifestyle. When I had an accident, he helped ease me in getting back behind the wheel again. I admire him for this.

“I have used Richie Axelsen to purchase two vehicles this year and he makes the process a breeze! He does all of the leg work- from locating the vehicle that you want to negotiating with the dealership to keeping the car salesman at bay. I would highly recommend Richie and Auto Buying Assistant.”

I recently purchased a car for my daughters through Richie. I told him, Richie, I want to wake up with a car in my driveway and all the paperwork done. It was almost that easy. Richie brings new meaning to customer service and satisfaction. My daughters are thrilled, the price was great, and it took about an hour of my day. I can’t imagine ever buying a car without ABA again.

d us twice with the trade and purchase of new vehicles. Because of his hard work and expertise, we got the best possible deals on all fronts and it was completely hassle free. His professionalism is impeccable. Dealerships respect and want to do business with him. Can’t recommend ABA highly enough.

I have nothing but praise for the services provided by Auto Buying Assistant. It was a pleasure working with Richie Axelsen. He is highly knowledgeable and made the process of selling our old vehicle and purchasing our new one stress-free. We will definitely use his services in the future and have already referred a number of our friends to him.

I was referred to Richie by my dealership when I needed to ship my vehicle across country. I am very glad I was! He was very good with me, considering I am a tad OCD and worry a lot. He remained reachable whenever I needed him, was very kind and down to earth, kept me posted through every step of the process, and found me a great deal! I would recommend him to anybody with plans to do the same.
