As president of Soloma Auto Sales, my goal is to serve you and our community by providing a wide array of used quality vehicle's at flexible and affordable prices. In my past car shopping experience I noticed and witnessed first hand, the struggle of needing a vehicle and not being able to find good people who genuinely cared about my needs and expectations. This why our philosophy and mission is "To provide the best service and experience possible for families & young adults in our community who need help finding a reliable vehicle, while adding a special family touch to their car buying experience."
God has blessed me with a wonderful family. I am a father of 6 and happily married to my beautiful wife. I have been in the Business & Customer Service industry for more than 35 years. Ever since I was a child, God gave me the graciousness of being a business oriented individual, and with his guidance I started my very own small business at the age of 10. I was born and raised in a family of good Christian principles in Soloma, Huehuetenango, Guatemala. At a young age, my parents taught me how to manage a small business, and keep it running. I started off selling ice cream on my own -with my very first ice cream cart- which later helped me make money to sustain myself and help my father out with our family expenses. By the time I was a teenager I owned and managed a variety of different business's which I started from the bottom and grew. I arrived in Lexington, Nebraska in 1995 and later moved on down to Grand Island, Nebraska in 1996 where I began working for Manford Enterprise. In 1999, My wife and I, opened a variety store called "Novedades La Solomera", which we ran for over 15 years. In 2007, we decided to open our current auto dealer "Soloma Auto Sales" and earlier last year "Soloma Auto Sales 2". God has blessed us greatly with these years of service in which we have learned to serve our customers better professionally, with respect, and Honesty. I look forward to working with you, my staff and I will work hard for your business, and will go out of our way to find the vehicle that fits your needs.
