Meet the Staff of AutoRama Pre-Owned Cars
Tom Mitchell - Owner Operator
(770) 638-7233 - email@example.com
I have been in the automotive industry since 1983. I worked for the Neal Pope and started in sales and worked my way up to GM and stayed with the Pope Organization for over 12 years. I then worked as a GM for Buford Auto Plaza for another 2 years prior to opening Autorama in April 1997. Mark Gillespie and I opened this store and worked here by ourselves for 3 years before adding additional employees. We have come from 15-20 cars in stock to now having $1.5 million in cars at any given time and a large arrange of lenders offering rates as low as 1.9% depending on car credit of the individual. I personally buy all the cars we have in inventory myself. I am originally from NJ, born in Camden and moved here with my parents when I was in the 5th grade. I went to High School at Berkmar, across the street from the Dealership here in Lilburn, then off to college at West Ga. I work here with my wife and father along with others that have been with me for years. We have 4 great children and we are proud of the family type business we have developed. I look forward to meeting you when you come see us. I love the automotive industry and I strive to be the best I can be and help as many people as I can with their credit and getting them the car of their dreams. I take pride in the A+ rating we have with the BBB and mine and my wife's involvement with different charities in the local area. Please feel free to come visit us and say hello. - Tom Mitchell Sr.

Gretchen is the for all intense purposes is the REAL BOSS here at Autorama. Although she had to sleep with the owner to get the job she has really done great things here. She only works 10am-2pm and then has to go to her second job “The family’s Children” TJ, Drew, Trent, And the Lovely Tori and all their activities as well as the GLUE to keeping the family as one.
