"Jessica has a contagious energy and a real honest passion for life that no one can ignore; she has a real gift of encouragement and shares her positive optimism with us - every day, all day. She is the Jimmy Fallon of the Automotive Industry. She loves people, all people, so much that she positioned her office to be in the middle of all the action - right on the show floor - if you get the chance, or have the time, sit down with Jessica so you can experience for yourself what we love about her. She is one of the most driven individuals I have ever worked with, though her schedule is often demanding, Jessica always makes herself available to her team and customers. She helps push us outside our comfort zones, even though it's not always fun at the time, we know she is helping us develop new levels of professional success. Her coaching style and approach allows us to - on our own, identify the areas we need to focus on and/or modify, to help us turn bad habits into good habits and a lot of this occurs through self-discovery - she's never one to just give us the answers, but asks strategic questions to help probe us to challenge our own thoughts and actions. In her words "We are not problem conscious, we are solution conscious - there's always a better solution and/or better outcome if you're willing to put in the effort." Every day she in one way or another helps stretch us closer to reach our full potential, and she does so in a fun and outgoing way. We know that she really does care about each of us on both a personal and professional level; she consciously will avoid words like "staff," and/or "employees." This may seem minuet, but it has a big impact when developing and maintaining a team culture that is built from trust, and a lot of hard work. She exhibits great leadership skills in positively motivating, coaching, and mentoring us to change our thinking. She has taught us to think deeper and become problem solvers, with all of the changes a store experiences during construction, we have the mentality that nothing will stop us. With Jessica's leadership we all know it's just a matter of time before our store is one of the top performing stores in the country, we are just glad to be a part of the journey."

I love West Side Perk in Bloomington off Old Shakopee road and Bloomington Ferry Road's nice neighborhood coffee shop right next to Zekes restaurant. I loved Breaking Bad and now need another show to entertain me on those long winter nights. I am a single parent with custody of my 2 wonderful teenagers that go to Jefferson HS. Love to read mainly fiction and fantasy, yes I am a book nerd. I love dogs and have always had at least one. I love to go up north and chill by a lake and fish and in the winter go to somewhere with beaches and sunshine. I love classic rock and all sorts of live music. I get the most enjoyment from my job when a customer leaves telling me this is the best experience buying a car they have ever had. I work at RB Honda because the GM Tim Carter personifies the best type of person to work for. He wants customers to be treated as I believe they deserve. As your neighbor and/or your friend. Protecting them from spending their hard earned money in an unwise way.
My name is Brian Kelly and I have been with the RB Honda sales team for 6 years. I primarily deal with Leasing, which I thoroughly enjoy.
"Fred, he will always make you smile. You can hear him laugh and sneeze from a mile away. Fred is a MN Homer? every year he thinks the Gophers are going to the Rose Bowl, the Twins are going to the World Series, and the Vikings are going to the Super Bowl, he's still enthusiastically waiting for a new MN Trophy. Fred is a gentleman; in the middle of winter he scrapes off and warms up his fellow female team members vehicles. He has an amazing memory, he can memorize absolutely anything including - but not limited to the sequence of license plate numbers correlating with the time-frame a vehicle was purchased?weird right?!? J When Fred is away from the store, he enjoys riding his bicycle and maps every turn on his route. He enjoys traveling all around the world. Fred is a meat and potatoes kinda guy who really enjoys having fun in life. You will not find Fred taking life too seriously; he can truly find humor in anything. His clients love him, and we are all glad he is a part of the RB Honda family."
I would have to say the highlight of my life is my family, Merry my wife of 37 years and my two children. Samantha is a Senior at Bethel University majoring in International Business, Spanish, Minor in French and Leadership. Scott, my youngest is a Freshman as UW Stout majoring in Business. My favorite time of the year is fall and the start of pheasant hunting season. Stop in and see a picture of Max my Golden Retriever, he has been my faithful partner in the field and around the house. Now that Max is 13 years old, I will have a decision to make on to replace him with a new dog for the field. He is still a great friend, and he has earned his retirement, but can no longer handle the rigor of the hunt.
I am new to the car industry and love the guy next door attitude that R. B. Honda has. The look on customers face's when they leave and hop into their new Honda says it all. I get great satisfaction in helping prospective customers into the correct vehicle at a great price!
My name is Bridget Quinn-Engstrom and I have recently chosen to be a part of the RB Honda team.
My husband, Pete, and I were Residential Remodeling Contractors for many years. When the economy started to decline, I decided to try selling cars for a few years while business was slow. That was 10 years ago.
The placard on my desk says it all "Enter as strangers. Leave as friends". It has always been my goal to treat everyone the way I want to be treated and I have built many friendships along the way as a result. I have achieved Master Certification in Cars and Trucks to keep up on the latest technologies so you don't have to. You can trust that I have your best interest at heart.
While my guilty pleasure is some version of dark chocolate with sea salt and nuts (which you can usually find in my desk drawer)... I get the most pleasure spending time with my kids. My daughter, Riley, is a student at UMD. She is a creative cook. She continuously surprises me with sugar-free and gluten-free recipes. My son, Quinn is a student at Burnsville High School. He keeps us busy attending his Football & Baseball games. My youngest daughter, Delaney is a theatre girl who continuously makes me laugh. I had the honor of being in Footloose the musical with her last winter. What a blast that was.
I chose RB Honda because this dealership believes in creating customers for life! I truly enjoy helping people find that "just right" vehicle. I have families that I have sold several vehicles over the years...... that is my biggest compliment! When the focus is all about you.... we all win.

Tony's favorite car is one that a woman he dated drove: a Yellow 1985 Corvette. Tony lives in Apple Valley and has five kids who help him stay young. His favorite song is Slow Ride by Fog Hat, he's always willing to sing this song on spot with a BIG smile. When Tony isn't at work he is enjoying quality time with his family up North as his cabin. His favorite television show is MASH - seriously. Something that may surprise you about Tony is?he has a 2nd degree black belt in Martial Arts.
