I’m Joe Harvey and I specialize in the sale of new and pre-owned Corvettes at Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe, Washington. I was born and raised in Edmonds, Washington and graduated from Shorecrest High School in 1993. I started my automotive sales career at Chuck Olson Chevrolet in 1996 at the tender age of 20.
It took me about two weeks to finally sell my first car which, ironically enough, happened to be a brand new 1996 white Corvette coupe with beautiful, bright red interior. I was instantly hooked on the emotion I felt to witness the amount of joy and excitement that the Corvette brought to the couple that bought that car. I think I naively expected every car I sold from that day forward was going to be that same outpouring of emotion. Needless to say I quickly realized those types of emotions are strictly reserved for one car and one car only: the VETTE.
In 1997 when our first C5 was dropped off at the dealership it was love at first sight. At that exact moment I knew I had to have one of my very own. So over the course of the next three years I saved every penny I could from every car I sold and in 2001 I took took delivery of a 1999 Navy Blue Roadster with a cashmere top and cashmere interior. I owned that car for about two years and then in the fall of 2003 I replaced the ’99 with a gorgeous 2002 Millennium Yellow Roadster. I had that car for about two years also until I reluctantly sold it to a customer that made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
All the while I immersed myself in everything Corvette and successfully steered most all of my sales toward new and pre-owned Corvettes. Since going to work at Speedway in February of 2002 I have been able to support the majority of my sales predominetly on Corvettes. I’m now not only one of the top selling Corvette salespeople in Washington State, I have one of the highest Customer Service Satisfaction ratings as well.
After about three years of not owning a Corvette I couldn’t stand it anymore so I recently bought a 2005 Machine Silver on Steel Gray Coupe with every available option offered in ’05. I, like so many of you, have a genuine passion for these cars that seems to grow stronger every time I get behind the wheel of the most superior sports car ever built.
I promise you that not only will I work my tail off to stay competitive on price, but I’ll also make your buying experience the most enjoyable it’s ever been. Believe me when I say I’d be honored to be your Corvette salesman.
Speedway Chevrolet opened the doors to its Corvette center in the heart of Monroe, Washington in the spring of 2000. The dealership has a state of the art facility which boasts 10 service bays, a well stocked auto parts department, and, of course, an enormous inventory of new and pre-owned Corvettes. No need to run all over the nation to find the right Corvette. I carry lots of Corvettes under one roof. If I don’t have the right Corvette you want, then I will find it for you.
