    Greetings and a big "Hello!" the 'Paris of the South'!

    I've lived here in Asheville since 2007. My love of theatre brought me here, but my love of the mountains kept me here. I so enjoy a quiet hike on a beautiful day or a quiet walk by the river with my dog, Carson. I am also a performer by trade. Since I was a little girl, the stage called to me and I found I had a knack for entertaining people.

    In fact, before arriving here at Prestige Subaru, I was a performing tour guide on the LaZoom Comedy Tours. It's the big purple bus in downtown Asheville. It's always full of folk laughing and having a great time and I'm proud to say that I was a part of that for 5 years.

    With my performance and touring background, I enjoy meeting and talking with new people and I can't wait to meet you!

    Feel free to bring along any fur babies you may have. I would love to meet them and animals are always welcome!

    Hi there! I'm Kim Richardson. I look forward to learning about you and your vehicle needs and helping you find a vehicle you'll love. My focus is giving you an outstanding purchase and ownership experience.

    I've driven my 2005 Forester over 163,000 miles and it has comfortably and reliably delivered me through snow, ice, rain, and mud. I love my "Rooster." My four-legged friends appreciate the rear seats folded down so they have prime sniffing position from the windows. I appreciate the moon roof everyday and the heated seats on chilly occasions.

    I traveled many of those miles touring as a professional singer/ songwriter. I've released three cds and am always working on new tunes. I love getting outdoors and exploring trails & waterways. Whether on foot, two wheels, or by kayak, nothing beats getting my toes in the grass (or water) and the sky in my lungs.

    Being a Prestige Sales Consultant affords me the opportunity to be of
    service to you, helping you find the right vehicle for your needs; one
    you'll be proud to own and excited to drive. Come say hello, let's talk
    about what brings you joy, and find the vehicle that fits your life.

    An Asheville native, I enjoy all that being in Asheville has to offer from the food and music scene to hiking and mountain biking. I spend my "off time" with my daughter and our fur babies, Zeus (a Lhasa Apso) and Tubby (an orange tabby).

    Being a long time Subaru owner myself, I was excited to join the Prestige Subaru team and help others find the perfect vehicle that fits all their needs and lifestyle! With over 20 years experience in the automotive business, I strive to put my experience to work for you. Whether this is your first time buying a vehicle or your hundredth, I believe that every customer deserves a level of customer service and professionalism that will make their next purchase a pleasant one."

  • Jason Wicks
    Internet Sales Manager/Digital Marketing
    828-738-1593 or 828-280-1270

    My name is Jason Wicks. I thought I would tell you a little bit about me, why I love what I do, and some of the things that make me passionate about life and Western NC. Before joining Prestige in October 2013, I worked in the newspaper industry for 15 years. My love of Subaru started in 1990 with my first car, a 1982 Subaru GL. Since that time, I have owned a total of 8 Subarus, including a 1998 Outback with over 248,000 miles. Four of these vehicles were purchased from Prestige. As you can see, the Subaru brand has been much more than a car for me, it's been a friend and part of the family.

    I am married to Lisa and we have 2 girls, Greta and Afton our sweet dog Olive (Yellow Lab) and Tucker the orange tabby cat. After growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I moved to Western NC in 1992 and fell in love with all the mountains can offer and have been here ever since. I enjoy mountain biking, trail running, camping with my family and I recently finished my 6th half-marathon.

    Thank you for learning a bit about me and I look forward to meeting you!

    I have lived in the Asheville area all my life. I worked as a Automotive Technician for 20 years. I also had a towing company for over 15 years and during that time, I only had to tow in three Subaru's.... so now you know why I love the product.

    I enjoy traveling, time at the Beach, Snorkeling and spending time Outdoors!

  • Sean Fitzpatrick
    Sales Specialist
    828-785-4404

    A native of Long Island, I moved to Asheville in 2005 along with my wife Melissa. A year later we found our home in Hendersonville as well as the first new addition to our family. An abandoned Shitzu mix we found on the side of the road during a snow storm shortly before Christmas. We named him Oliver. A few years later, a trio of feral kittens found our home. It took a long time to gain their trust, but now they are the most loving house cats. 

    I have always worked in customer care. I began working the counter at my father's deli when I was 12. As a young adult, I was fortunate to join Home Depot as they were growing. I never expected to still be with them over twenty years later. Over those years, my role changed, and customer contact was no longer my primary focus. I really missed the one on one personal care, which prompted my career change. I was most recently representing Ford, but leapt at the opportunity to join the Prestige Subaru family.

    It is truly an honor to be a representative for a company known not just for the excellence of its product, but also for its commitment to its customers.

  • Josiah Gonzalez
    Sales Specialist
    828-544-8552

    To whoever may find their way to this bio, you are reading about a very passionate car enthusiast who's main aspiration is to rise in this industry for the love of both automotive culture and the well being of their community! My name is Josiah, I am now 20 years old but have been working in or around dealerships since I was 17! My journey into this field began at a very young age with a passion for cars.... Sports cars, usually. I was obsessed with the idea of exotic cars such as the McLaren F-1 and the Lamborghini Murcialago but as time went on and as I matured over the years, that translated into an appreciation for all cars, regardless of top speed. At first, the idea was to apply my automotive prowess in the engineering field but it only took a couple semesters of college before I realized that I wanted to go bigger than that - I wanted my own dealership. So what did I do and what was my plan to achieve this? I dropped out and started working for a used car dealership and have since moved to Prestige as a salesperson working diligently to provide A-1 customer service to new and experienced car buyers alike. Look no further if you're looking to work with someone who's in this thing for the greater good of the customer and who's in it for the long haul.

    Hi Friends! My name is Anna and here is a bit about myself. I moved to the Asheville area when I was nine and have been hiking the trails ever since. I love being outdoors doing just about anything, but if there is a waterfall it's better! I am energetic and outgoing, I love my job as a sales consultant here at Prestige getting to know all different types of people, and I actually bought my first car from Prestige years ago! I have always loved Subaru's so joining the team here is a thrill.

    I have a wonderful husband and two children as well as three dogs and a cat. I thoroughly enjoy life and would love to help you find the vehicle that best suits your needs!

  • Jeffrey Rutledge
    Sales Specialist
    828-678-6020

    My name is Jeffrey but I also go by Jeff. I grew up in the wonderful state of Oklahoma where it was more common to see a horse standing next to you at a red light that a Subaru Outback. In 2012 I moved with my family to Asheville and left the tornados and dust storms in my rear view mirror. Thankfully Asheville has no lack of interesting people and culture, especially when visiting the drum circle on Friday night. 

    I enjoy the outdoors, especially camping and fishing, after all, I did grow up watching Man vs Wild on the discovery channel so that basically means I'm a survivalist professional. I do most of my outdoor adventures at Lake Fontana and the weekends I'm not out there, I'm walking around downtown Asheville, sampling the food and drinks. 

    The Subaru life is new to me, but has already been a blast being involved with. I can't wait to answer any questions you may have or go on a few test drives.

9. Enjoy a different experience going thru the Prestige Adventure Center showroom/facility. This location is where our Internet Sales Department is housed as well as additional service bays. The Adventure Center showroom is quite different from your normal dealership showcasing the latest outdoor gear all sourced from local manufacturers. On display in this large showroom you will find outdoor gear from Liquid Logic, Sylvan Sports, Watershed, Outrider USA, and items/brochures/information on countless more. So stop by, sit back, relax enjoying a locally sourced coffee or hot coco on us while you peruse the gear.

 



10. At Prestige we look for long term relationships, we don't want to just get you "in and out". The staff,  here at Prestige, have many of the same interests as our customers...  Hiking, Biking, Kayaking, a love for animals, Woodworking, the list goes on.  While buying a car or getting your car serviced; connect with our staff. Something that sets us apart, and keeps clients coming back, is the people that work here and the lengths they will go through to ensure their customers are satisfied.


11. At Prestige we not only treat your personal information with the utmost confidentiality but we also go to extra lengths to ensure it's securely destroyed once it's no longer needed.

 

12. We listen to our customers!  We have significantly expanded our operations to provide additional levels of service with expanding service bays, detail operations as well as inventory storage. This will provide a better customer experience for parking & navigating our facility.
