Kristina Kingsbury
Sales Professional

Born and raised in the fabulous state of Vermont. Kristina was brought up in the small town of Bradford and moved to Barre Town in her 20's. Kristina has always enjoyed the little things in life. Her parents both hard workers taught her that hard work pays off. As a child she spent many days working on race cars with her Dad or building houses, playing in the mud, riding her bike around the block, hanging out with the boys, and one of her favorite pass times was packing the car with pillows and popcorn to go to drive-in theater with her Mom. Kristina knows most of the back roads in Vermont and that prompted her love for traveling. She can show you how to change the oil in your car, or do just about anything around the house. She enjoys working hard and most often she tends to play the role as the job foreman!

She enjoys traveling, sports, spending time at her Lake House, and most of all laughing with friends and family. From a very young age, Kristina has been fascinated by cars and their mechanical evolution. She does not come from a car crazy family, but over the years her passion for the automotive industry has been acquired by her friends and family. You never know when Kristina rolls in what kind of a car she will be in.

Kristina's children all have paws of some sort. She has two dogs (Jagr & Obie) and two cats (Frankie & Emma). You won't find her attempting to climb Mt. Everest, as for her favorite vacation spot - anywhere warm, with a beach!

Kristina loves her job because she enjoys meeting people and helping them find the perfect car for their needs. Kristina takes pride in providing her customers with the very best service. PERIOD. Kristina believes in building long term relationships based on trust and integrity, and "Customer hospitality". Even though Kristina is passionate about cars, she is more passionate about people. Kristina is one of the newest members of our sales team, her upbeat positively, fine expertise, and commitment to a total customer satisfaction is a great fit!

Cody Barclay
Sales Professional

I spend my time off either cleaning my apartment, spending time with my sister, or playing disk golf. I had a handful of jobs, such as painting and custodial work, before I found my love for sales. I first started in the sales industry selling insurance and found that insurance just wasn't for me. I was bitten by the sales bug though and started in the car business the day after leaving my insurance job and I haven't looked back. I look forward to each new customer that comes through the door.
