Steve Craigmiles, Sales Consultant

WHAT IS YOUR AREA OF EXPERTISE?

From sales to finance, I can help with most all the customers questions and needs.

WHAT PROMPTED YOUR INTEREST IN THIS PROFESSION?

I truly enjoy helping others solve problems and fill their needs. It is an amazing experience to watch a customer drive away satisfied and happy they worked with you.

WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY?

It’s natural to make excuses for why things didn’t go the way you wanted. But that won’t do you any good because it won’t solve your problems. Instead of making excuses, focus on solving the problems.

WHAT KIND OF CHARITY INVOLVEMENT DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN?

We have put together several charities from filling trucks for flood and fire victims to doing toy drives. Recently, we were involved with the American Cancer Society.

Tracy Winslow, Sales Consultant

WHAT PROMPTED YOUR INTEREST IN THIS PROFESSION?

I have always been a people person, and this field allows me to come into contact with varying aspects of people, as well as problems to solve.

WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY?

Car buying can be a traumatic experience to some, and I like to take the edge and apprehension of this away and get down to a manageable, fun time picking out options and colors.

WHAT MAKES YOU AND YOUR COMPANY STAND OUT FROM YOUR COMPETITION?

When advertising, we show our price that is one we will honor without the need to qualify for. In today’s world of internet sales and price shopping, it has allowed us to make sales from Alaska to Florida.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD?

I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three great kids that support each other in any endeavor and an employer that wants me to succeed.

FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM:

Mizzou Sports and St. Louis Cardinals.

My areas of expertise include Jeep, Ram, and Uconnect product knowledge.

WHAT PROMPTED YOUR INTEREST IN THIS PROFESSION?

I worked for the State of Missouri for almost 10 years and was ready for something different. I always had an interest in cars and had never worked in sales, so I decided it was time to give it a chance.

WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY?

My business philosophy is to provide our customers with the best service possible. I don’t want to sell my customers “just” a vehicle, I want to provide them a service. I want my customers to feel like they are my only customer.

HOW DOES YOUR PROFESSION BENEFIT THE COMMUNITY?

My profession benefits the community by saving them money. When you come to Jim Butler, you can count on getting the best price the first time.
