Kia Optima

December 30, 2016

My Husband and I have been looking for vehicles for the last month or so, and he told me about the radio ads that he had always been hearing of Southeast KIA. We went to possibly trade our existing vehicle for a newer one, and Brandon & Spencer Williams greeted us and sat down with us to discuss our options. We were able to work out a deal, and both Brandon and Spencer were totally honest with us and treated us with tremendous respect throughout the entire process from start to finish. Thanks to Brandon & Spencer we were able to drive away with a much better deal and vehicle than we had imagined. Thank you Spencer & Brandon and also thank you to the rest of the Southeast Kia crew, you made the process seem pretty easy, and I am so happy with our car choice, a moss green 2016 Kia Optima FE. You have made my husband and I into repeat customers, and we can't wait until we can go back there in a couple of months to get my husband a new car for himself. Thank you for everything!
