I established Hollis Ford (formerly Juniper Mercury) in 1977. Over the years the business has grown from 4 on staff to 40. My success over the years has been primarily due to hiring people that love the auto business and who maintain a great relationship with our customers. Please contact me personally if you require assistance with any of your automotive needs.
