Linda Radue with Burnsville Volkswagen doesn’t keep a running total of how many cars she’s sold. She works hard, takes care of people and finds out later.
After her best selling month, she found out 59 1/2 cars had passed through her hands. “I didn’t even know until the end of the month that I sold that many cars,” she said.
Radue was also surprised when she learned she was named a Businesswoman of the Year by SunThisweek newspapers. Her new and used auto sales are tops in VW’s Midwest region, and her goal is to lead the nation.
On the back of her card, prospects read, “Don’t ask about me, google me.” What they find are some 300 reviews on DealerRater. Customers have been seen reading them in the parking lot.
Radue came to VW seven years ago, and started in service. After a sales manager noticed she was bringing many guests to the showfloor, he insisted that she join the team and worked with her one-on-one.
