    Jim earned his PhD in Psychology in 1995, but has worked extensively with all types of people in different counseling and educational settings since since 1980.  He joined the Basswood family in March of 2017 to transition into a career as a sales and leasing consultant.  Thoroughly enjoying his transition into sales because he "still gets to help people", Jim has several goals when working with customers.  They are as follows:

    1. To help people feel at ease and have a completely different sales experience than they've ever had before, 
    2.  Educate them about each step of the car buying process and
    3. Diligently work to help people accomplish their objectives regarding a vehicle and their budgetary expectations.
     Let Jim put his extraordinary experience with people and problem solving to work for you so you too can have the joy of vehicle ownership and exceptional customer service.
