Sansone, a second-generation car dealer with a diverse portfolio including dealerships, technology and banking companies, shares his journey and the innovative approaches he’s taken to enhance his businesses and contribute positively to the community.

Sansone relates how his success in retail car sales laid the foundation for his other business ventures, all designed to make car selling more efficient and profitable.

Recognizing the growing Hispanic community in New Jersey, Sansone has made concerted efforts to make his dealership Hispanic-friendly, accounting for a significant portion of his sales.

Addressing the challenges faced by customers with less-than-perfect credit, Sansone developed Dealer Controlled Leasing, offering a lease-here, pay-here service.

Sansone shares insights into the future of car sales and financing, emphasizing the importance of adapting to market realities and exploring new revenue streams like his leasing company, which promises significant profitability with minimal staff.
