Linford Berry

Linford Berry

Owner/General Manager

Linford has been intrigued with all things mechanical since he was a little child. Early childhood experiences included disassembly of all kinds of devices to see how they “work”. As a youth he worked on his grandparent’s farm and learned a variety of important skills. While still in high school he started his first business and went on to operate and manage a couple other business ventures in the following years including a landscaping business, turkey farm, and a manufacturing company. In 2005 he and his wife Judith started a used car dealership as a way to provide some income and flexibility that would complement his part time position as a pastor. Linford is a member of and has served on the board of directors as well as district president for the Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers Association. Linford’s day to day tasks and responsibilities include general business management along with purchasing and selling cars and helping out in the shop with difficult diagnostic issues or wherever else he is needed.
