Tweetable Quotes:

  • “Auto owners, the trips are great. We love the company we’ve been. We can track our history with auto owners all the way back to the 30’s through several different ownership situations here at the office.” – Jason Verlinde
  • “What I’ve started to do is try to take 10-15 minutes to scroll through that every day, and comment on things as the business. So, especially if you have one that has a lot of activity with other people commenting, you can get in there and you know, local people that see.” – Jason Verlinde
