This website and it's products are a cumulative effort from a couple's past experience as auto wholesalers and brokers.

In their videos, they share their combined 15 years of knowledge in automotive sales and purchasing; including their personally learned wisdom from the collision repair and mechanical industry.

Paul worked the commercial side of the auto business; buying and selling big trucks, dump trucks, fleets of vans and so on. Tanja took on the more public side of the business, first specializing in buying and re-furbishing older Toyotas, Hondas and Nissans, some of which you can view on the lower half of this page. Her interests eventually included the newer imports like BMW, LandRover, Mercedes, Acura, Infiniti and Lexus that were still under full manufacturer warranty. Coined a 'personal car shopper' by many of her female clients, Tanja became the trusted auto broker/wholesaler for many Phoenicians when it came to looking for their next vehicle. Most were concerned with how to avoid buying a used vehicle with previous accident damage, especially if the car they wanted was only a year or two old; for certain accident damage would invalidate the vehicle's manufacturer warranty.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="right" width="800" el_position="first last"]People who know better never trust a dealership. Why would anyone make such an important purchase from someone who only cares about squeezing as much money out of them as possible? - They use an auto broker like Tanja, who saves her clients time, hassle and often thousands of dollars on a vehicle purchase. She is dedicated to finding that perfectly matched car for her client and has the knowledge necessary to educate and assist her clients in making informed choices.

Consistently sorting through the 'lemons' in order to find clients a clean and sound used car in 'like-new' condition, Tanja gained a successful track record with her customers and their referrals. Over time, many of her clients and fellow BNI members suggested she make her used car inspecting and buying skills available to the general public. There seemed to be a demand for honest and empowering car buying knowledge.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="right" width="800" el_position="first last"]Before I met Tanja, I hated the thought of buying a car. I would drive my cars in the ground, to avoid having to go through the rounds with a dealership. Tanja is outstanding at what she does and I hope she shares this with the general public one day. She has a keen eye for details; Details that most of us would just glance over and ignore. She provides an exceptional service, and has many delighted customers. It was a pleasure buying a car through Tanja. She not only works diligently to find exactly what you want, but she saves EVERYONE time and money. As business owner, time, money and energy are your sources of power. Utilizing her service not only made me look good and feel great, but also extended my resources dramatically.

Remembering her own first-time car buying experience at the age of 19 and how her ignorance around cars was clearly taken advantage of by a salesman at the Honolulu Honda dealership, Tanja gave it some serious thought. Spurned on by the horror stories that others shared with her and Paul, and her own 'first-time used car buying tragedy', they agreed that educational efforts in this area would be of good use to the general used car buying public. They proceeded to take a year off from the car business to create the videos found today on Towards the end of that period, they also managed to create other tools like the Vehicle Crash Tester, their eBook and the Vehicle Inspection Checklist & Rating System, to help people choose the right car for themselves, even if they knew nothing about cars or really how they work.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="left" width="400"]The info in your video program is good - so many things I never would have thought to look for -- in fact it just reinforces the need to have a vehicle checked out by a mechanic b4 buying. Thanks!

~ Wayne Carroll, Owner at Inspired Idea Solutions, LLC, an Intellectual Property Law Firm - Phoenix, AZ[/blockquote][blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="left" width="400" el_position="first last"]Tanja's products did a great job for us, and it even gave us ideas to recondition our Volvo so we were able to sell it for top dollar. I recommend her to everyone I know who is in the market to buy or sell a car.

Meet our Mentors

The autos you see below are a third of the vehicles that we bought and/or sold. At the dealer auctions, we learned how to take in a car with our eyes and feel it with our fingers, so that within a matter of thirty seconds to a minute, we were able to assess if it was a good buy or not. These are just some of the techniques we teach you in our videos.

Roll your mouse over the photos below and you will find that each car has its own story…
