Meet Edgar Arias and Varinia Castillo of Roxbury Motors in Roxbury

Today we’d like to introduce you to Edgar Arias and Varinia Castillo.

Edgar and Varinia, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It was a dream I had, I owned a mechanic workshop and a tow truck I used to carry vehicles for different people with dealers to the local auctions, it started to excite me the idea of selling cars and decided to speak with a friend to let me buy and sell cars in my workshop, then in 2011 I saw the opportunity to buy this used car dealership which had another name, was a big project to raise this dealer because it was losing customers, the first year was very hard but with the help of God we are today where we are, It was Me, my wife my brother-in-law and an employee, it was and it will always be a family business.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Competing with a large market of used cars in the area, dividing our family time with work is a bit problematic, sometimes we take the kids to participate of the activities to share with them on weekends as always. Those are the obstacles that challenge and prove the ability of good business owners.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Roxbury Motors – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
This is a used car business that tries to give our customers a satisfactory service, we specialize in the financing of used cars in very good condition, we offer an easy and quick process of financing in our large inventory, We have a great diversity of customers, the approval is guaranteed no matter how is your credit, Community help, involve in the community, we participate in several events such as sports religions, modeling, walks etc sponsor them as well.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We still need to grow more, we want to be in the best option when the community decide to buy a vehicle. The purpose of our business is to create a customer who creates customers, for the future we want to open another branch in a different city.
