With over 30 years of experience in the car industry, Linda settled into Winter Chevrolet 10 years ago as the Internet Director. Linda has many repeat customers and has built a large referral clientele. She says that her favorite thing about working at Winter is, "the people." Many customers and co-workers can be found in her office stealing a piece of candy from her candy bowl, which she keeps filled to the brim. She is especially proud of her relationships with many local police officers and has a collection of police badges displayed in her office from many past customers and friends.
Linda has remained in the Bay Area all of her life with her Dad living close by and raising two girls who are now 26 and 29 years old. "Can't beat the weather", she explains of her admiration of the Bay Area climate, although she does love vacationing in Hawaii when she finds the time. Most weekends she enjoys spending with family or with her horse, Misty. She and Misty often volunteer their time for Hippo-therapy, giving young disabled children therapy through horse back riding.
Out of the large Chevy lineup of vehicles Linda's favorite is without a doubt the Tahoe. "It does everything! Hauls people, horses, everything. Drives well. It can handle snow. It can do anything and is so comfortable."
Come by Winter Chevrolet and meet Linda, if you haven't already, and be sure to grab a piece of candy!
January Employee of the Month!
Brian Vargas came to Winter Chevrolet in October of 2009. Born and raised right here in the Pittsburg area, Brian often celebrates his Portuguese heritage with his large family. Having a father who was in the Auto Industry for over 34 years, made it an easy decision to follow in his foot steps. Brian and his father sold cars side by side for nearly 20 years. During that time some of the best advice he says his father ever gave him was, "Don't ever lie to anybody. Tell the truth because in the end it's the better way to go. Even if they don't want to hear it."
Brian currently drives a 48 Chevy Fleetmaster and says that he is a "Chevy guy all the way!" Besides his love of Chevy's new and old, he enjoys time camping with his family and having big family celebrations where they enjoy their homemade wine. With 7 vines of Zinfandel grapes, they make 20 gallons from their backyard vineyard. Brian still has the wine press and barrel his grandfather once used.
Come by and introduce yourself to Brian and ask him about his homebrew, 48 Chevy or his dog named Buddy!
