    Sales Associate
    DIRECT: 616-249-8875 or CALL/TEXT CELL PHONE: 616.889.2467

    My name is Justin Schipper, or "Skip" as most people call me.  I have been happily employed at Borgman Ford Mazda since September of 2012.  My career began in Mazda Sales and not long after, I was offered my current position in the Ford Showroom.  I am now certified in New Ford and Mazda Sales, as well as Pre-Owned Sales.  The most exciting, and fun part of my career is the plethora of different people that I have the opportunity of meeting, working with, and getting to know.  My desire is that all of my customers feel comfortable and know that I am someone that truly cares and has a passion for customer service. I truly enjoy the process of helping people find the perfect vehicle for their needs and giving them the most honest, upfront, and fair pricing.  At the end of the day, my #1 goal is to provide one-of-a-kind service for all of my customers.  When it comes time to take your vehicle home, I want our relationship to be so comfortable that we can consider ourselves friends, not just a salesman-customer relationship.  Taking delivery of your new or pre-owned vehicle does not mean that I am done working for you, to me it is just the beginning.  I am always here to help with any issues, questions, concerns, or anything that involves you, your vehicle, or anything related to us and our team here at Borgman Ford Mazda. I make a promise to all of my clients that I  will never run from, or hide from you, when unforeseen issues arise.

    Please feel free to reach me anytime during normal business hours.
