Jeff Wilkinson - Owner
Always loving cars, Jeff has been known as the "car guy" since a young age. Knowing that he wanted a profession in cars, he started his career at a local Pontiac Buick dealership in Lincolnton. There he rapidly promoted his car profession to General Manager. By 1993, he chose to chase his dreams and pursue his own small pre-owned dealership in Lincolnton, NC. Jeff's Auto Sales was officially born.
During a 20 year span that small dealership grew from one person to eleven full time employees. With that growth it led to building a new facility. In 2008, Jeff's Auto Sales expanded into a new location on East Highway 27, Lincolnton, NC.
Jeff states, "The success to our business has been in always checking the cars out before we sell and treating every customer with total respect."
Jeff's 25 plus years in the car industry has always resided in Lincoln County. As an active and supportive member of the Lincoln County community, Jeff is very involved with local charities and cherishes the moments he can give back. Having a locally owned and family operated business is important to him. He is proud to have six of his eleven employee's family members.
