Heartland Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram in Excelsior Springs, Missouri is thrilled to spotlight a well deserved employee for a job well done. Heartland CDJR has a sales staff of 7 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram certified product specialists. Of the 7, we are proud to share that 3 of them are experienced and hard working sales women who have all earned their spot in this primarily male industry.
Chandelle Ballinger, an Excelsior Springs native, is no exception. A key piece of our team, Delle, has been named the "used car queen" as she took the first place spot in the number of vehicles sold in August of 2019. Delle started in 2016 and has over 4 years of automotive experience specialized in the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands. Prior to joining the automotive industry she pursued her certification as a licensed cosmetologist. Delle was a hair dresser for several years before leaving and pursuing sales. When asked why she made the choice to pursue a career in the challenging automotive industry with longer hours she responded:
"I wanted to challenge myself in ways that I never had before. Being a single mother, I knew that I had to make a choice: either spend more time with my daughter and live paycheck to paycheck cutting hair - OR - believe that I had it within myself to do something more. I wanted to learn, grow and succeed and that is exactly what I have done here. I have bettered the quality of life for my daughter and have grown in so many ways personally. I am a stronger person now and the decision to join this fast paced, energetic, challenging and competitive industry is something I will always be grateful that I made."
Many of Delle's customers find her very helpful and informative. She is a go-getter and her personal life makes her relate-able among her customers and co-workers. Delle's favorite thing about her career is that she able to help people in bad situations purchase a vehicle.
"I get so many customers who walk in hopeless. They don't believe that they can purchase a vehicle. Regardless of their situation, I try my absolute best to help them in the best way I can; where many sales professionals across the nation wouldn't even bother. Helping someone in need, is so rewarding to me"
The Heartland Team is very proud of Delle Ballinger for being the top sales person last month and we are even more proud to have her apart of our team.
