Since the 1950s and long before the ritziest shops graced South Beach, Ocean Cadillac has been selling luxury on Miami Beach. Today, the dealership remains a special place, offering the finest American luxury vehicles to discerning clients, who come to Ocean Cadillac from throughout South Florida for an unparalleled sales and service experience.
The dealership was acquired in 2014 by Brickell Motors, the local dealership group which now boasts nine dealerships in Florida and Illinois. Led by owners Mario Murgado, Rick Barraza and Alex Andreus, Brickell Motors brings a longstanding track record of success and exceptional customer service which perfectly complements the tradition of high-touch service that has always been a trademark of Ocean Cadillac.
The day-to-day operations at the dealership are led by general manager Marc Collins, who has been served Ocean Cadillac customers for more than 18 years.
“Brickell Motors has a tradition of ensuring that its managers are very accessible to customers,” said Collins. “We truly to strive to run our Cadillac store like a neighborhood ‘mom and pop’ location. You can find me in the service drive and on the sales floor each day. It’s one of my favorite parts of the job, and I’m proud to represent Brickell Motors and Cadillac in this way.”
Collins points out a number of other benefits being part of the Brickell Motors family that helps Ocean Cadillac customers.
“Our dealership group represents a number of other brands which gives a distinct advantage on non-Cadillac trade-ins,” said Collins. “We will always be competitive on trade-ins as Brickell Motors understands the market for many different manufacturers. And while we always want our customers to drive away in a new or pre-owned Cadillac, we also can make great referrals if need be.”
Ocean Cadillac’s Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) is one of the highest in Florida, and the dealership’s sales and service teams are constantly looking for improvement. According to Collins, they will go to nearly any length to ensure that customers get the vehicle they want at a great price. Many customer experiences begin online and many others end with home delivery. Making the purchasing experience easy and enjoyable is a priority.
“We have sourced vehicles in other states and even delivered cars to customers as far away as Connecticut,” said Collins. “We want our customers happy and excited, and we will go the extra mile, or even hundreds of miles, to make it happen.”
Bringing Cadillac’s signature service to Miami Beach is another of the dealership’s hallmarks. Every Cadillac sold receives roadside service during the term of the warranty and staffed by a Cadillac-certified mechanic. If a customer needs gas, has a flat tire, has an issue with a dead battery or virtually any other problem, a roadside technician is dispatched 24 hours per day and seven days per week. One of Ocean Cadillac’s roadside technicians, Eddie Bronicki has been with the dealership for more than 20 years. Cadillac doesn’t expect its vehicles to break down, but if it happens, the dealership has its clients covered.
Cadillac has an impressive line of new vehicles for 2018, offering a great automobile for nearly any customer.
