Jason Enos: President/Owner
Hi. My name is Jason Enos. My wife, Jamie, and I are the owners of Smart Choice Auto Sales in Godfrey Illinois. We have two daughters and are residents of Godfrey. We opened our business in July 2007. After working for two large dealerships in the area as a detailer, salesman, and then a sales manager I wanted to open an automobile dealership of our own, but on a smaller scale. I visualized owning a dealership that offered 1 to 2 year old, clean vehicles that could save a customer thousands of dollars. At the same time providing professional, honest, service.
This is how it happened. At the age of 18, I was hired to work as a detailer for Roberts Motors in Alton, IL. I worked there as a detailer for over 2 years while I attended Lewis and Clark Community College. After receiving my associate’s degree I was still uncertain of what I wanted to do for a career. I asked Roberts Motors to allow me to become a salesperson while I took a semester off school before transferring to SIUE. I really liked selling cars and did this for two years before being promoted to pre-owned sales manager. I was in charge of purchasing inventory, appraising trade-ins, newspaper advertising, and making sure the pre-owned inventory was reconditioned. I worked for Roberts Motors for 8 years. In 2004 I was recruited by Weber Granite City Chevrolet to be their pre-owned sales manager and I worked for them for 4 years prior to establishing Smart Choice Auto Sales in 2007. Both Weber and Roberts were great dealerships to work for and taught me a lot about the business.
I now have over 20 years of experience in the automobile sales industry. I operate my car dealership with honesty and integrity. I truly believe that buying a pre-owned vehicle that has already depreciated is a smarter choice than buying a new vehicle. We do research before pricing each and every car and I put the prices of our vehicles. They are both advertised on many websites and on the windshield of each car. I promise that you will receive honest, professional, advice and service before and after the sale. It is our goal to not sell you just one vehicle, but for you to refer us your friends and family and to be back for your next one too.
