"Coming from an Investment Banking background, I am used to putting clients and their needs first. However, I was extremely surprised by the lack of a customer-centric approach during my car buying experience. I was very frustrated with constant pressure, haggling on the price, countless sales calls. Buyers deserve better, especially while purchasing the second most expensive asset beside a house. CarBevy aims to solve this and provide you with an exceptional car-buying experience. It is an honor to be a part of your car-buying journey."
