Kevan MacRae has over 20 years of sales experience, and for many of those years his preferred product was vacuums. About six years ago he decided it was time for a change, and he started thinking about cars. A few of his friends worked in the industry, and it fit well with his hobby restoring classic cars and motorcycles. But he didn’t jump in right away.
“I looked at all the major brands before making my decision. The quality of the products at Chrysler was very impressive — it was a brand I could stand behind.”
“I’ve been extremely happy here. O’Connor’s has great people and great products.”
Finding the perfect match
Kevan sincerely enjoys helping customers find the perfect car, matching their needs to all the great choices at O’Connor Chrysler. Some customers browse online and come into the dealership with a clear idea of what they want, but Kevan says many still shop for cars the old-fashioned way.
“Some people come in with no idea what vehicle they should buy — they don’t even know if they want a truck or an SUV! It’s a lot of fun to learn about their wants and needs and help them find the perfect vehicle,” he says. “Some customers are very loyal to our brand, and others you have to win over. But I do enjoy the challenge.”
Kevan says it’s a great feeling when a customer tells him they’ve found the perfect vehicle: one that suits their needs and lifestyle. And putting the puzzle together is enjoyable.
“Most people seem to be more excited about getting a new car than a new vacuum for some reason!” he laughs.
Enjoying the open road
Since he started working at O’Connor Chrysler, Kevan has fallen in love with the Jeep line — he bought a Jeep Wrangler about five years ago, and recently upgraded to a new Jeep Gladiator. But on his days off you’re more likely to see him on his motorcycle, riding with the Chilliwack chapter of the Goldwing Road Riders Association or towing a tiny tent trailer for a camping trip with his wife of 30 years.
