The Eide Chrysler team is always there to help their customers – as demonstrated by Lisa Horst, who earned the Employee of the Month and Salesperson of the Month in Pine City.
“She really committed herself to the Eide process throughout the month,” Tom Fischbach, General Manager said. “She really put her customers first and was dedicated to the team, including partnering with the accessories department. She went above and beyond, and we all appreciate that.”
Lisa didn’t come to Eide Chrysler looking to sell cars in July 2019. She came for an office job.
“They said, no, you can’t do that. You need to sell cars,” Lisa said.
Lisa has been in sales all her life – the selling gene runs in her family, with her father running a family business – and though she’d never sold cars before, she jumped into it.
“When I started, I didn’t know a lot, but I’ve learned quickly,” she said. “I had a team of managers and teammates who helped me out, and I’m grateful.”
The challenge of the job keeps Lisa going.
“There’s absolutely nothing typical about car sales,” she said, “but I like that. This is the first job where I’ve felt really driven. I never dread coming to work.”
Working with the team and helping people find a car they can fall in love with is her favorite part of being a salesperson at Eide Chrysler.
“It’s great helping a customer get into something that will get them where they want to go safely,” Lisa said. “I love that. I’ve gotten hugs and high fives and even tears, helping people get into a car they know is safe and reliable. That’s the best.”
Outside of work, Lisa loves going trail riding and raising litters of puppies in her home.
“We live on a lot of acres, so there’s always something fun to do outside,” she said. “It’s rewarding.”
To Lisa, being part of a team is what makes all the difference at Eide.
“We all worked so hard in January and did well as a team,” she said. “We help each out and support each other.”
When you’re in need of a new vehicle in Pine City, Lisa and the rest of the team at Eide Chrysler is here to help you.
