      Patric Von Drashek - el habla espanol

      My name is Patric von Drashek. I am a trained, master certified Volkswagen sales consultant who has been working at Schmelz VW since October of 2005. My training is unique from one of the most intense training programs in today’s USA car industry. They allow no previous auto sales experience into their training program as they do not want learned bad habits undermining their process. Honesty and integrity with customer satisfaction both during and after the sale are stressed throughout the training. I have brought this early training forward and have improved and refined it over the years. I wish to make your car buying experience the best you have ever had.

      Ralph Ludden

      Hello, my name is Ralph Ludden and I have been at Schmelz since April 2009. I love meeting new people and my favorite thing to hear is that my customer loves their new car. Cars are too expensive to drive something you do not love. I live three minutes from the dealership and I have the world's greatest commute. I married my wife Sue in October 1996 and we now have two girls who both want Beetles when they turn 16. When I am not working I enjoying spending time with my family and I am a golf nut.

      Hi! My name is Kim and I love Volkswagen models! I drive a bright yellow Beetle that I love dearly, and I love driving it down the road blasting old rock music! I am fluent in Spanish and in my free time I enjoy reading and playing the piano. Nothing makes me happier than finding the perfect car for all of my customers!
