Gary Uftring has been a fixture to central Illinois car buyers for many years, including before the acquisition of his first dealership in Washington. Mr. Uftring began his automotive career on the wash rack at a small dealership in Minonk, Illinois. Armed with the determination to succeed and the desire to become a top salesman, he took advantage of opportunities as a “fill in” sales consultant when the store was short staffed. When he turned 18, the owner of the dealership agreed to let him sell cars full time. Because he was so young, Mr. Uftring focused on exceptional product knowledge and a passion for cars – two traits that serve him well to this day. Over the years, Mr. Uftring has developed an/or acquired multiple dealerships in central Illinois. However, his focus has always remained on great customer service and a commitment to giving back to the community.
I’m originally from Pekin, IL, and currently live in Mapleton. My lovely wife, Dani, and I have one son, Finley. When I’m not selling, I enjoy family time, golf, and both going to and watching movies. I’m a fan of any Chicago team besides the White Sox, and I try to catch a game up there at least once a year. Working at Uftring has been great because of my coworkers, the company as a whole and what they stand for, and the overall atmosphere I get to work in every day. I was in the Air Force for nearly seven years, and it’s nice to say I work for a company that offers a military discount. My favorite brand to sell is Jeep, so it’s nice to represent that here in Pekin. I love to sell because I feel I am giving back, and helping new customers begin a journey. When I see the look on their faces once I put them in a new car, I am reminded ultimately of why I’m in the line of work I’m in. Come see me today, and I’ll help you find the car you’re looking for.
I’m from Pekin originally, but currently live in Green Valley. I have a lovely wife, Jessica, and we have two kids, Caleb and Jenna. My interests include golfing, hunting, and fishing. If it’s outside, I love it! I also enjoy watching the Chicago Blackhawks with my family. Uftring is a great place to work because of the upper management and my coworkers. The atmosphere here is amazing, it’s a fun place to work, and I am constantly surrounded by great people. Seeing the customer satisfied is the main reason I love selling. I look at all of my customers as new friends, and I will always make sure I put you in the right car. I love to sell Wranglers especially, but I will put you in what you want! Come in and see me today.
I’m originally from Peoria, but I currently reside in Creve Couer. I have a lovely wife, Emily, and together we have a daughter named Brinkley. I love watching The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and The Chicago Cubs, and I am also a big car guy. What I love most about Uftring is the family atmosphere. Everyone helps one another, and no one is better than anyone else. I really enjoy working on new cars, and helping people find their fit. I will take what you’re looking for, provide my knowledge and experience, and let you choose with my help. Out of our selection, my favorite car is the Chrysler 300, but I’m happy to put you in any of our others! Come see me today.
