Default Two More Burt Dealerships Sold

http://www.denverpost.com/ci_14361436

Interesting note from the article. I didn't know Burt owned HM Brown and Associates, a local car broker.

Wow, the Burt organization is down to just one dealership.

I just dealt with someone from HMBrown today on a used unit...she never really got to the point, but I assume she wants to steal it...my first encounter w/ a broker of any kind calling on the normal sales line...

I really wonder what the future is for auto brokers? Given that most dealerships have active Internet Departments I doubt many customers will see any "added value" by using an auto broker.

Concerning the Burt organization, I wonder if the worst is over and they can survive from here? If they can, I've got to give them credit, at least they have managed to keep one store operational, unlike Bill Heard or Hecker.
