Reviews on SMG Auto Brokers

 
Sam S. | 2015-04-24

I had a great experience here at SMG with Z (Zareh). I live in Las Vegas and the dealerships here all wanted a "Market Value Adjustment" over the window sticker on the car I wanted to buy plus I was told here that the exact color for the car and roof (it is a convertible) color combination just wasn't available. Z got me the exact car I wanted without a "Market Value Adjustment", if fact I bought the car several thousand dollars under the price on the window. Great job and I recommend them highly. I will probably buy another car through them for my wife at the end of the year for my wife.

 
Lindsay H. | 2015-04-23

Great company, great service! I cannot speak more highly of good ol' Z [aka Zareh] as he was ON the ball with everything. I even let him borrow the new car a few times... kidding, but I totally would.

Highly reco SMG!

Can't recommend SMG highly enough.  Arlen hooked me up with a great lease on a BMW 3 series.

I spent tons of time in dealers and online researching.  Called Arlen and he beat the best deals I found right away.  Not only that, but he went above and beyond to get the deal done.

Absolute straight shooter who puts all the numbers and information in your hands so that you can make a wise choice.

Don't waste your time with a dealer.  Call SMG/Arlen and tell him exactly what you want and he will get you a fantastic deal on it that you will not be able to get for yourself.

 
Sar A. | 2015-04-17

I had such an amazing experience with Arlen buying my Lexus today.  He made it sooo easy for me. I did not have to go from one dealer to another to get something  within my budget and deal with the headache.  One phone call he made it POSSIBLE.  Arlen's pure honesty and patience made me feel very comfortable to make a quick decision.   He made sure I got what I want it :).   Thank you again!!

Definitly looking forward to working with Arlen again :)

Great team at SMG!

Tony was my auto broker. He went out of his way many times to ensure I was completely satisfied with my car of choice, and payments. It took about a month, but I was finally able to decide on the perfect car for me; a 2015 is350.

Tony felt more like a friend, than a salesman. Never did I feel pressured into making a deal with him. He has an amazing personality and will always be my go to man for a car. Whether it be me, family, or friends I'll always have them consult with SMG before any other broker. I have 100% trust with the guys at SMG. Thanks again for the great deal!

 
Ben T. | 2015-04-12

Do you hate negotiating, being at the dealership for whole day, and getting the worst deal? Then I recommend going to this place to do the job. I just recently got an M4 from them and I am so thrilled! Z at SMG helped me get an amazing deal. You should definitely hit him up. Thanks SMG for all your help! I love my car :D

 
Jacko Y. | 2015-04-05

I've dealt with a lot of auto brokers in my day. I love cars, and I love buying them more! I got in contact with Arshag over at SMG through a mutual friend. He was super helpful, knowledgeable, and got me what I wanted and how I wanted it within a matter of a couple hours. Highly recommend SMG to all my friends and everyone in general that is trying to buy or lease a car.

 
Vered B. | 2015-04-02

My friend had a great experience here and told me I should contact them.

Alain got me a ridiculously good deal compared to what the dealerships had offered me. He was consistently polite & patient with me, and really remained calm & kind during all the negotiations.

SMG couldn't have known it was going to happen, but the dealership SMG worked with ended up selling me a brand-new car with non-functioning Bluetooth. So I had to bring my car into the service center right after purchasing the brand-new car - it was in the shop for 2 days before I was told it would be another WEEK before a new Bluetooth system arrives. The dealership (Puente Hills Nissan, which I would NOT recommend) was unprofessional and caused a ton of drama for me and for SMG. The Nissan dealership had no interest in making it up to me, even though everything should be working immediately in a brand-new car.

Rather than saying "tough luck," Clyde did everything in his power to make it up to me. It wasn't his fault that the dealership did not properly inspect my vehicle before selling it - yet he stepped up and did whatever he could to try to make things better. Clyde and Alain were sympathetic toward my experience - they spent a ton of time and energy on trying to alleviate a not-so-great situation, at their business's expense.

Even though I had a rough experience, I really appreciate SMG's business ethic. I think that's a rare find nowadays, and I will certainly recommend SMG to anyone who is seeking a great deal on a great car.

 
Moe G. | 2015-04-02

I have dealt with many car brokers before and my experience with SMG and Arlen were second to none.  Very honest and easy to deal with.  Definitely recommend!

 
Mehran A. | 2015-04-02

This was the best car lease experience I had, AL helped me find the best deal ever. I got a new 2015  Infiniti Q40 for almost half of what the dealers were offering, it's crazy, I was paying the same amount for my previous lease, a hyundai elantra. Everything was prepared and the whole process was smooth and painless, I never talked to a sales person from dealer and was not involved in any of negotiations, AL took care of everything. Thanks a lot AL, I will send all of my friends to you guys for awesome deals.

 
Samantha B. | 2015-03-31

I HATE BUYING a car at a dealership, like would rather jab my eyes out with pitchforks than deal with the experience,  BUT I LOVE having a new car like most people.  I saw that my old friend Aaron was working as a broker with SMG and thought, why not give it a shot and avoid the dealership.  Let's just say, I'm so pleased that I did.  I didn't have to waste a beautiful weekend day away from my kids or deal with haggling or icky car salesmen.  I got to give business to a friend and in turn got exactly what I wanted at an unbelievable price.  We handled most of the transaction through text and phone calls which was so nice for my husband and I. Today my new 2015 Toyota Highlander was delivered to my home.  I signed paperwork and was given a tutorial on all the amazing tech features the car has to offer. We'll definitely use Aaron, Clyde and SMG again!

 
Inga O. | 2015-03-30

I called SMG and a few other auto brokerage companies to help me find a new car to lease. I was surprised to how thorough SMG was compared to the other companies I called to get quotes from. I got the privilege of working with Zareh who was so nice & helpful from the first phone call! Since I have never worked with an auto broker before he was kind enough to explain to me as to how they work to get me the best deal. I really liked that.  He listened to exactly what I wanted and was so great about following up and keeping me updated during the process. Thanks to Zareh & the SMG team I was able to get my new BMW earlier than anticipated and I couldn't be happier and more comfortable with the deal I got. :)

 
Natalie E. | 2015-03-24

Yet another satisfied experience with SMG!! My husband and I got a new car, it was so easy because of Edvin Yeroomian. He was very patient with us and openly listened to all of our wants/needs (even though they would change on the hour!) he was very patient and helpful. He showed genuine concern in making sure we are happy with our purchase and get exactly what we want! This was such a pleasant car buying experience due to Edvin! Thank you!

 
Stacy K. | 2015-03-22

Great experience.  Steve found the perfect car for me and I got an amazing deal.   I would definitely recommend these guys.  I didn't have to deal with any Dealership BS.  Thanks Steve!

 
Sameer P. | 2015-03-18

I am officially done dealing directly with Car Dealerships.  Using SMG Auto for your next car/lease is a NO BRAINER.  Staff is beyond friendly and knowledgeable about the space and are truly interested in getting you in a vehicle, even if it is not with them.  However, for me, they are the ones that will always be the ones that get me into a new car.

Tony @ SMG was great from beginning to end.  Even dealt with my somewhat amateur questions and took the time to walk me through step by step.  He was a man of his word through and through and was able to put me in a car of my choice with certainty and speed.

Looking forward to working with these folks again.

 
Janeane A. | 2015-03-17

Great experience! Edwin was so accommodating and nice. The rep from Longo Lexus was great too! Edwin got me what I wanted and I would highly recommend SMG and Edwin. No nonsense too which I love.

 
Cynthia D. | 2015-03-16

Edvin Yeroomian is so amazing. I hate shopping for cars. I knew what I wanted, but I just didn't have time to deal with car sales BS.  I told Edvin what I wanted and by that afternoon he had 3 options for me that we're all great deals.  He found me a car that I love and it was an awesome deal.  Thanks!

 
Karen M. | 2015-03-14

based on the reviews i read, i was expecting someone who would really help me get the best deal and figure out which options were the best on financing - lease or loan.  this was not the case.  the follow through has not been good. i prefer to have all the information emailed to me so i can evaluate my options but Zareh prefers instead to call leaving voice-mails to call back. It is almost impossible for me to make calls during the working day as I am in conference calls non-stop until late in the evening.  When I do talk to him, it's either the accurate numbers is on his desk and he will get it for me and when he does, it is missing some other information.  The info has been bits and pieces and incomplete.  How am I supposed to make a decision when I still don't fully understand leasing and it's implications at the end of the term if I wish to purchase. It has been 4 days and I am still waiting for an answer to a question. He does not listen well and does not followup with the information I need so I can make my decision.  Zareh's agenda is more like this - present 1 car and position that as the best deal and hope I will go ahead.  He kept insisting that a lease was the best for me w/o finding out what my real situation was and my options.  He also steered me away from Mazda even though I know at that time, Mazda was offering 0% financing.  I had to keep insisting on that before he mentioned that it usually is only for people with good credit.  So here is the classic example of not taking the time to understand your client.  If he was any good, he would have taken time to understand my circumstances better.  I have excellent credit. I have also found out more information by researching it myself including better pricing.

 
Jason T. | 2015-03-09

Originally left a 3 star over a misunderstanding and was immediately contacted by the gentleman I was working with and the owner himself, Clyde.

After getting some more insight I realized I had misunderstood the situation and decided to update the review to reflect my thoughts. Great company to work with and you can tell they are an honest company to work with. The reviews really do speak for themselves. Highly recommended. I might just end up getting a car through them after all.

 
Trice H. | 2015-03-04

After spending all day at the dealership trying to get a car for the price that was comfortable for me I left there with nothing. I was referred to "Z" at SMG Auto Brokers by a friend. When I tell you this was the best experience of my life. I called "Z" on Monday afternoon he  explained to my what a brokers does and how he could made it happen. He heard the uncertainty in my voice and told me not to worry. He asked me what type of vehicle I was looking for, my price range and if I had any down payment. On Tuesday evening "Z" called and gave me the best news ever, I qualified for a 2015 BMW 328i. On Wednesday my car was delivered to my house by Edwin with a BMW repentative. I will never ever go back to a dealership again. I will continue to go back to SMG for all my future car purchases. I will like to thank  "Z" and the whole team over at SMG for making my dreams come true.

 
Vannessa T. | 2015-03-02

I went to a very good friend zareh at SMG auto brokers hoping he can find me the best deal after going to so many dealership and he did just that he hooked me up with my C300 mercedes for such a good price Took care of all the paperwork and delivered it the same day to my door within hours of me calling him that's what u call the best.. I didn't have to move a muscle besides picking up a pen and signing ... Thank you so much zareh and SMG for really hooking it up ... I had my car ready for Saturday night detailed and all .... Definitely recommend SMG for the best deals

 
Andrew N. | 2015-02-22

Had a spectacular experience with SMG Auto! No hassle, very professional did all they said they do, plus more and delivered the car to my house!
Zareh (Z) Injergholyan is one best Sales person, I've deleted with will do everything he says and goes beyond that!

 
Anthony M. | 2015-02-22

Best guys in LA! I cant recommend these guys high enough. I got referred to SMG by a friend of mine who used them. Clyde got me a lease on a new Porsche even though I had only been in the country for a year with a short credit history.

Thanks again everyone at SMG!

Al Z. | 2015-02-17

Zareh and Edwin did a great job finding me the car I wanted. I didn't even have to step into the office. It was quick and affordable. Im glad I didn't waste at the dealership. These guys are the best!

 
Angelyn M. | 2015-02-16

I recently relocated from NYC to Los Angeles and not having owned a car for over 10 years, car shopping was an intimidating prospect, to say the least.

I was so relieved to discover SMG and meet Arlen, who in essence became my personal car shopper.  I got expert advice on the cars I was interested in and which models would afford me the best deal. He even spent a full day taking me to different dealers to test drive and ultimately helped me decide on the right vehicle, negotiating a deal way better than I had seen published anywhere else.  I can't say enough good things about the exceptional client service.  Arlen even checked back in with me after a few weeks to make sure everything had worked out.  I can't imagine how I would have ever gone through that process by myself and besides that, he even made it kind of fun!  Based on my experience I would absolutely recommend SMG.

 
Rubik O. | 2015-02-16

I purchased a company car through SMG for the first time. I have always dealt with brokers to avoid the unpleasant dealer experience. My previous rep moved to a different state so I no longer have a preferred broker of choice until I ran into Zareh through a good friend of mine. Zareh is an amazing individual that truly cares about his customers & most importantly he really loves his job! Zareh made my car buying experience smooth & efficient. I am extremely impressed and pleased with both Zareh & Edwin''s customer service. Edwin you really showed your professionalism with outmost courtesy during the delivery of the vehicle. Thank you so much for listening to a customer and delivering what's needed and wanted this really means a lot to our company! I will certainly refer my business colleagues along with family and friends to you.

 
wilson w. | 2015-02-11

Best way to buy or lease a car. Arlen was awesome. Got me a great deal and was in and out. Didn't have to spend 8 ours haggling at the dealership. Just stop by their office signed and drove off in 30 min. Can't beat it

 
Chris P B. | 2015-02-07

Im in the carbiz, so i've decided to check these guys out and drop some of my businesscards. Without really knowing who i was ( customer or vendor) , Clyde the CEO invited me in, offered coffee and talked about cars. I really had a good impression of these guys and their service. They have a unique system to find the best deals and they can even get you out of current leases and find a better program.
This is an independent review, no one asked me to write it!

Henrik S. | 2015-02-06

Had the pleasure of leasing a Vehicle from SMG a few months ago. I was refereed by a friend who had used their services before and was very happy. I can say that Zareh and the team at SMG made the entire process very easy and saved me not only alot of time but alot of money as well. He beat all of the other quotes I received and the car has turned out to be great.

Looking forward to doing business with them again.

 
Jose Z. | 2015-02-01

Hands down the greatest & easiest experience I have ever had when getting into a new car! I have to say that ARLEN was amazing at getting me exactly what I needed. After just 2 days, Arlen called be back to let me know he had found my exact car (communication with him was an A++++++). I had done my own homework and the price that he quoted me was much, much lower from the down payment to the monthly payment. I even went to my local Ford dealership and got asked by the salesman what kind of a deal I was getting. After I told him the details he shook my hand and said 'you are getting a hell of a deal'. That was the last time I ever step foot on a car dealership lot.
Thanks again ARLEN and you will be hearing from my friends and family real soon!!!
Keep up the great work!!!

 
Jay C. | 2015-01-15

Got a 2015 s550 from smg. Clyde save me 3000$. He even personally drive me to the dealer to pick up my car. If you don't want to get rip off by the dealers. Call Clyde.

 
Ken L. | 2015-01-14

Arlen helped me get into a 428i Gran Coupe today, and it was a very seamless transaction. He was very cool, and I truly felt that they were there to represent me and protect my interests. I got a very good deal on the car, and I am 100% certain I could not have gotten that number for myself. Best of all, he did all the research, and actually picked something I really liked. Being that I am very picky, I'm pretty amazed at that. I am a firm believer in letting professionals do what they do, and these guys are pros. He even offered me a sandwich when I went to pick up the car!

 
marjorie l. | 2015-01-10

Arshag is awesome!  Got us the car we wanted at a great price and stayed late new years eve to deliver the car!  Signing the paperwork took less than 5 minutes!

 
Nitin A. | 2014-12-22

Awesome Service!!! I was trying to gift an Acura mdx to my wife.

Tony not only got the best price (I price shopped before calling him) but also drove 5 hours to deliver the car to me on the day I asked for. There was one small hiccup on the actual car dealer side but tony negotiated with dealer to 'pay' for his mistake and got him to be even lower - All of that before delivering the car to us.

So in the end I am extremely pleased with Tony's service and highly recommend him!!!!

 
Alex S. | 2014-12-22

Man! What can I say? The Guys over at SMG are awesome! Very kind, helpful, and VERY knowledgeable about buying cars for less. They made me feel like one of their own and I am very thankful for that! It was very tough for me to find my S63 with red interior at a good price. But lo and behold, Clyde found it for me! Now im enjoying my ride with a massive smile on my face! Thanks again Guys!

 
Vic S. | 2014-12-21

To All,
I am a long time friend of the owner, and I hope you don't think my review as a bias one. I am proud of what my friend has created, and I can say that because I am a client. I am driving around in a $60k car for a monthly payment you wouldn't believe. The best part is they told me they were upset because they could have gotten me a lower payment two months later. I don't care. I loved that my quote was given with tax, and I signed a contract with the same price that was quoted from the beginning.

I am in the credit industry, and any reviews stating severe decreases in their score after working with SMG is not feasible. Inquiries make up 10% of your score...you do the math.

Thank you, SMG!  I love getting into my car everyday!

 
Tal T. | 2014-12-18

Ive dealt with brokers before but this has by far been the most pleasant experience. Edwin was honest and patient from the get go. Listens to what we were looking for in terms of options to the vehicle with a budget we had. Just a few short days later I as driving my car home! I'm a happy girl! Thanks SMG!! And thanks Edwin.

 
Arshag A. | 2014-12-16

Excellent is an understatement! Getting my car from SMG was a walk in the park, and I did not have to do anything but wait for a call from Emil at SMG Auto Brokers. I called him asking for an Infiniti and within a couple of hours he got me a phenomenal deal. I was speechless on how fast and what a great deal he got me. I was there the next day and so was the car. I went home with a new car, and new crew to help me get a car for the rest of my life. PLEASE GO TO SMG!!!! Ask for Emil because he has the hook ups on any car.

 
Rhiannon W. | 2014-12-15

I was referred to SMG through a friend of mine who has worked with Clyde for years. I was deciding between 3 cars depending on price and I ended up with the my first choice for a great price. The service was exceptional and I couldn't be happier!  My work schedule was very demanding during that time and they even delivered my car to my house on a Saturday night and we did the paperwork in the comfort of my living room. I never once was haggled or had sit around a car dealership for 5 hours to still get ripped off in the end. SMG truly opened my eyes to a whole new car buying experience and I look forward to working with them again!

 
Avik A. | 2014-12-15

This is the second car I'm leasing from SMG. No dealer nor any other leasing broker was able to beat the price for the new S coupe. I absolutely appreciate  this place for the professionalism and service they have provided me and my family the last few years. I wanna thank Clyde and the crew for being the best in the business. Top Notch !!

 
Ara B. | 2014-12-15

Best service ever!!!  I will never step foot into another dealership as long as SMG is around.  We agreed on a price and the car was delivered to my house the next day.  I highly recommend their services.

 
Michael Z. | 2014-11-24

I had a great experience with Clyde and the SMG Crew! I had to get a car rather quickly as the lease on my mercedes was coming to an end. Even though Clyde is extremely busy, he handled my car search personally and got me a great deal on a new porsche carrera. All I had to do was let him know my budget and what options I wanted and within a matter of days he got me exactly the car I wanted at a great price! I was too busy to pick it up myself so he even delivered it to me personally! What more can you ask for? I will never be going through another dealer to buy a car again and will definitely refer my friends and family to SMG.

 
Elijah F. | 2014-11-15

Arshag hooked it up big time. First of all, unlike a lot of reviewers I wasn't really sure what car to get. It's my first car so I didn't really care to go nuts..  Arshag was super patient and laid out all my options. Finally after working with him for about a week I was still having a hard time deciding what to go with.. I told him I felt like I could probably get a little more bang for buck and shell out a little more cash for a nicer ride. As patient as ever, he quoted me on a 2014 BMW 320i for an amazing price. Because I was car-less he even picked me up so I could go and test drive my options.. We went to a regular BMW dealer pretending we were interested in leasing, mainly so I could get in a test drive. Arshag posed as my friend(not my broker) and the first price they quoted me at was TWICE as much as what the SMG team was giving me. I was sold on the 3 series, super happy with the price and process. SMG is dope.. see them for a car if your looking.

 
yelp M. | 2014-10-21

I was in contact with this place numerous times in regards to getting a car. Clyde is the rep that assisted me. Unfortunately I can't recommend this place as it was extremely difficult to make contact with him. Everytime I called he was unavailable or would call me back. I never heard back from him until I had to call back again numerous times after he did his research. He was supposed to call me back with the prices etc. but never heard from him again. I wouldn't recommend this place as it was just a waste of time and I never got a solid price or deal from the brokerage.

 
Gadget K. | 2014-10-19

I had a wonderful experience leasing a new car through SMG, specifically due to my interaction with Ara Basil. Ara was very helpful throughout the entire leasing process - he answered our questions in detail, was knowledgable about the various  features on the cars we were considering, and ensured we would get the best deal possible. We had a limited amount of time to work with but he made it happen and for less than other leasing companies were quoting us. He arranged for the car to be delivered to our front door the day before we needed it. No hassles, no hidden fees, no headaches! I have no reservation or hesitation about working with Ara again to lease our next car.

 
Gurp S. | 2014-10-13

Arlen is the man... He worked very well ...everything on his own... I submit my Credit application and rest of all...he worked with Acura manager to get me best deal out..even though 2015 Acura TLX is the brand new car and there are hardly any promotions.... He helped me get to tier 1 lease pricing... Definetly come back to them again...! It really worked very well for myself.

 
Signe B. | 2014-10-11

Julie is the absolutely best! She made my life so easy and got me the car I wanted for the price I wanted without any hassle. I will recommend SMG to all my friends!

 
Prajwal R. | 2014-10-07

Buying a car isn't a nightmare anymore with SMG taking care of virtually everything. 2 days is all it took for Ara at SMG to find me the right car. SMG is the way to go for anyone who hates negotiating with the car dealers.

 
Paul Q. | 2014-09-26

All I can say is, Edwin made it happen!! 2 days from searching for the right car to driving it home is all it took, and Edwin took care of it. Only took five minutes to complete documentation. Everyone else has to be doing this because if not, you're not getting a deal. I will never negotiate with a dealer salesman again as long as Edwin @ SMG is around, believe you me.

Million Thanks Again Edwin!!!

You are the Man!!

Shanley W. | 2014-09-22

This was my first time getting a car on my own and I literally had 2 weeks to get out of my current lease and into something new. I had do idea what kind of car I wanted I just knew how much of a down I had and what I expected my monthly payments to be. I contacted SMG and Arlen was a complete lifesaver! I'm pretty busy so he was able to text me all the info I needed and when I decided on a car he met me at the dealership so I could test drive it. Of course I change my mind halfway through the appointment, but he waited patiently with me at the dealership for over 4 hours and helped me get into my Lexus ES 350. I got a great lease for 27 months and I am already excited about working with Arlen again once this is up and getting my next car. I found this company on Yelp and they truly live up to all their 5 star reviews. Thanks Arlen and see you in 26 months!

 
Nicki G. | 2014-09-17

What a disappointment. If I could give NO STARS I would. After reading all these amazing reviews we were really looking forward to working with SMG, as we'd never used a broker. Sadly, our experience was nothing like the others. When I talked with our rep he assured me the buyer (us) would pay nothing, all fees are directly from the dealer to the broker. Then I didn't hear anything. it took five days to hear back from our rep, and when he did respond it seemed to be only after I asked for an update.  He'd come up with only one option, claiming that he'd gotten the dealer "down to the best price." Then he added that this dealer doesn't work with brokers, so we could TIP HIM directly.  He provided a VIN and details about the car, but not the dealership info. My husband, suspicious of the "tip me directly" idea did a 30 second search online and found the EXACT SAME CAR on about 15 different websites for the EXACT SAME PRICE the broker claimed he'd "negotiated." We'd seen the car before but thought, because of the other Yelp! reviews, that SMG could do better. Apparently they can't. At least we'll save the "tip."

 
Sam Z. | 2014-08-31

SMG really helped us find the right car & provided a service that has changed our mind with how we buy/lease our future cars. We definitely will procure all our future cars through them! They made the process truly effortlessly for us. Not only did they find the car at the payment we were looking for but even better priced.

We would like to outline that there was a concern initially with the dealer but Ara not only made things better but went out of his way to really ensure we were more than excited about our new car. He worked over and beyond his call of duty to see it through working through his weekend and beyond!

Ara is truly a jewel in SMG corporate crown and we definitively recommend him as your only method of purchasing/leasing a car...

Thank you SMG and thank you very much Ara for all your help.

Sincerely,

Artineh

Ara at SMG is amazing! He found the car i want at the price i want and made the whole leasing experience so effortless. He is great at what he does and exemplifies amazing customer service.  I highly recommend contacting Ara with any questions.

Thank you Jay Johnson @ SMG for hooking me up with my Toyota Corolla. I had been searching for a good deal on a car for over 3 weeks. Let's just say it was a REAL NIGHTMARE, but Jay saved the day! He knows his cars and made buying through SMG a real breeze. You have a client for life!! Keep up the good work :)

 
Todd H. | 2014-08-09

Top to bottom a great experience. Got me the exact car I wanted at a great price, no hassle, no bs. And the service has been first rate.

I ALWAYS read Yelp reviews. It's my go-to source for figuring out which businesses to patronize. I've been using Yelp for almost 10 years now.

However, I have never ever once written a review before. I readily admit to being lazy and a free-rider in all of this. I have received great service and terrible service many times over but was never motivated enough to write anything about my experiences.

Well, that's about to change now.  I received such first-class service from SMG Auto Brokers that even despite my incredible laziness...... it would be outright criminal for me not to write about them...... because they deserve the praise and recognition.

Before I went to SMG for help, I had personally called up every dealership in town. I also hit up all the swap leasing sites scouring for the best deals. All told.... this represented 2 or 3 weeks worth of work...... in total maybe about 30 hours of calling, meeting people, and test-driving cars.

When I finally figured out the best deal I could possibly get, I thought what the heck..... give SMG a call and see if they could beat it. I didn't expect they could or would.

So I called SMG, told them the deal I had, told them what I needed, and asked them if they could beat it.

Sure enough..... within 3 hours they called me back telling me they had found a deal that was cheaper. Moreover, the car was better in the sense that it came in the unique and rare color that I wanted but found elusive in my search.

If that wasn't enough, they then drove out to pick me up at my house and took me to where the car was located. They stayed with me at the dealership the whole time to make sure everything went smoothly.  And then after I had signed, they walked me through the car and showed me all the tricks and gimmicks that came with my car. And then they threw in a free tint job.

It's been a couple of weeks since I signed the lease, and they have followed up with me a couple of times to make sure I'm enjoying my new car.

SMG is first-class all the way! No doubt about it.

To think I could have saved myself all that trouble if I went straight to SMG from the get go.

Ask for Arshag or Clyde. Either of them will treat you like a king or queen.

After two weeks of horror stories at every Toyota dealership in Los Angeles, I gave SMG a call and within a couple of days, I had the Prius I wanted, delivered to my doorstop at the price I had asked for. David was easy and professional and straightforward - couldn't be a more stark contrast than the incompetence and lies from every Toyota dealership (Hollywood, Culver, Santa Monica etc.) in LA. One dealership had us drive their way only to show us a 2013 Prius rather than a 2014. Others would said they had the car only to reveal it wasn't the right interior. Some would offer us tire protection (btw that doesn't exist on the Prius) and on and on and on. I'll be a customer with SMG for awhile. -Brian and Dani

 
Ashley D. | 2014-08-01

Before I found David at SMG I literally was about to give up on finding a car before my current lease was going to expire. I was looking for a deal that was basically impossible to find for the types of cars I was looking at (Lexus, Mercedes, BMW and Audi). No one was calling me back from other brokers and every time I would call them they would change what they initially said to me. I didn't go to any dealerships because I hate dealing with them so I knew I had to find the right broker.

The second I found David everything turned around for the better. He assured me that he would handle every detail and told me that he was going to find me the best deal I would find. Within three days I went from a phone call to my dream car and he got me an even better deal than what I was looking for. Anytime I needed answers he would write me the most thorough responses via email so that my dad and I could both see the numbers. I was only interested in the actual numbers based on my credit score and previous payments (which were all excellent) so when David got me that info and was so straightforward with everything I never had to wonder about hidden fees or anything that was going to be pocketed.

I'm driving a brand new 2014 Mercedes that I LOVE and it came just in time for my birthday! He delivered it right to me and is even going as far as helping me get a reimbursement on my previous registration which has nothing to do with him but just shows you how helpful he is. He offered to bring me to drop off my old lease as well and told me whenever I have any issues with my new car that I can call him anytime and he will handle it. This just never happens with brokers, dealers etc. but David and SMG looks at each client as someone who will be a lifelong client. I have already referred two friends to him and definitely give this experience 5 stars! Thank you David!!!!

 
Arek A. | 2014-07-30

I was helped by a young gentleman named Arshag...he was extremely helpful..he helped me pick out the exact car I want..got me a great deal..and even delivered the vehicle to my house free of charge. Everyone at SMG is very helpful and knowledgable about all vehicles...no other dealer or auto broker could find me deals as good as SMG. I recommended this place to all my friends..and urge anyone looking for a car to go hear. And yes ask for Arshag.

 
Ara A. | 2014-07-24

First time going through a broker and it was awesome.  I will never go to a dealership again after my experience with SMG. Great service, no haggling for hours with sales men, they find you exactly what you want and bring the car to you! I was referred to Clyde and he did a fantastic job. I will definitely be referring them all of my friends and family.

 
Raffi K. | 2014-07-12

5 stars is too little for the deal I got. Clyde is the fastest and most efficient in what he does. He got me the car the same day, for the best price.  You simply can't ask for any better service.

 
dion d. | 2014-07-12

Just got my new Carrera from the guys at SMG. Edwin took amazing care of me. Not only does he know cars, he enjoys what he does. He went way further than I would ever expect from anybody. Aside from getting me an AMAZING deal!! We went back and fourth, at first I was confused and didn't really know what I wanted to go with. He spoke to me, figured me out, asked me what I do for a living. Kind of figured me out and told me what the best bang for the buck was!!  It was kind of like a consultant figuring out the best scenario and what I would look best in and what would represent me the best in my business!! I'm locked, I will recommend everybody I know to this company. Awesome office BTW, very comfortable and inviting experience. Much better than EVER EVER EVER going to a dealership!!

 
Seth O. | 2014-06-09

Let me start by saying that Clyde is the man!!  If I could give them 100 stars that still wouldn't be enough.  This is my second car that I've leased through them and I am absolutely amazed at their dedication to customer service.  He not only beat everyone's price but I didn't even leave my office.  He dropped my new car off at my doorstep.  I wish all businesses ran an operation like this.  Don't waste your time going to a dealership.  Just call Clyde and he will handle it for you from A to Z.  God bless SMG!!

 
Loris M. | 2014-06-09

Best service and they find you the BEST deals out there. The entire staff is helpful and a pleasure to work with. I'm never going anywhere else to buy or lease a car. Once you work with SMG, you will never want to work with any dealers or any other auto brokers.

 
Louie C. | 2014-06-04

Wow Clyde and SMG is amazing!!! I've had experience leasing with Mbenz, BMW, Audi and after my experience with Clyde this guy will be only guy I and my friends and family will be going to for all our automobile needs.

I was looking for a Cayman S and already been shopping around for 2 months.. Most of the dealer gave me a quote of $1250 monthly for a 72k monthly. Clyde got me an amazing deal and my monthly is WAY less than the what the 5 dealerships quoted me on.

What I love is he didn't even run my credit until we found the perfect car. It shows that he wants you to be happy vs getting a sale and he took the time to really haggle the dealers down to as low as possible!!!

Super easy and painless process.  I was wearing my board shorts grilling burgers next thing you know Clyde shows up and makes the day even better. He delivered the car to my house and we signed the papers at my lobby on Memorial Day.

I promise you that if you work with you Clyde hes the only car connection you will need. Screw the delearship! Just go to the dealership test drive your dream car and send it to Clyde. Watch him do his Magic and Wala!

You won't regret it!

My New "Car Broker Forever and Ever" - David Kaye @ SMG Auto Brokers is awesome.
This is my 1st 'brand new' car purchase and he made it happen like butter.'
My previous car was totaled in an accident...so the past month for me has been very TRYING -to say the least.

SO HERE I AM : CAR- LESS IN LOS ANGELES.

My progressive car insurance DID give me a rental car...BUT I RETURNED IT LAST WEEK B/c TOYOTA OF HOLLYWOOD LEAD ME TO BELIVE I HAD BOUGHT A NEW PRIUS!!!!!  Weird right?!?!

I signed a billion papers and gave them $3000 at 1030pm on a Thursday.....after negotiating for 2 days - getting 0% Interest And good monthly payments. I thought WE HAD COMPLETELY SEALED THE DEAL AND I WOULD BE GETTING MY NEW WHEELS The following Wednesday......DONE! I did it!!!! YAYYY CAR BOUGHT!!!   WELL - THAT IS WHAT THEY LEAD ME TO BELIEVE.

The day AFTER I was expecting to pick up my car I got the phone call from my salesman,  not to tell me that my Prius was ready for pick up- but that "TOYOTA" wanted another $2000 security deposit.

Now- I had been without a car for a few days at this point. I was spending a lot of money on Zipcars - while it seemed to me that "the Salesmen in charge of my deal" had their 2 days off and didn't want to come in or something- it was all very confusing and they could've had me by my desperate balls- the ones that absolutely needed a car. But I felt like I was getting scammed....and I live for Justice.
I received my $3000 back and did what I should have done in the 1st place: I CALLED MY ATTORNEY - John McMahon.

I'm new to all this business crap - I like conducting myself straight up. So for me- I benefit greatly from having Mr. McMahon ( m.yelp.com/biz/law-offic… )
On my team.

John recommended to me "SMG Auto Brokers" by doing my homework and guiding me in the right direction.

After that David took over the show and got me The car I wanted at $125 less a month and NOOOO "extra $2000 security deposit".  ANNND I think he's driving it to my house tomorrow morning with the papers all ready to sign- b/c he knows I've got a crazy full day starting at Noon.. David said it will take 20 minutes to sign the paperwork and were done!

I'm so relieved.
The whole car buying experience at Toyota Hollywood made me so upset, frustrated and really kinda sick.

....And David Kaye at SMG Auto Brokers was my Superman.
Dorky thing to say but so very true indeed!!!!!

Best of luck to all those buying a new car! Do yourself a HUUUUUUUGGE favor and call David @ SMG. It's theeee way to buy/lease a new car .... BOTTOM LINE!!!

 
Eric N. | 2014-05-27

Given all the positive reviews on yelp, I contacted SMG Auto Brokers when I was in the market to lease a BMW. Clyde contacted me promptly with a quote of the exact car I was looking for at a price significantly lower than my local dealer's bottom line. The color and model that I wanted turned out to be very popular but Clyde and his associate, Dan delivered exactly what I wanted within a few days. Contact them first before you step foot in a dealership!

 
Tom T. | 2014-04-22

I leased my cars through the Costco auto program in the past, and recently I heard about SMG through a friend/co-worker.  So I contacted the agent at SMG, Sebastian.  We exchanged a few emails and phone calls, and yesterday, Sebastian and a representative from the dealer came to deliver the car to my home.  We went through the car's features and options, signed the leasing document and I was done in about 30 minutes.

Compare this to the Costco program, I had to visit the dealer, they went through the dealer's cost, invoices and started negotiating the leasing program, and I spent about 4 hours from the time I left my house to the time I drove the car back to my home.

Not only did SMG gave me a BETTER deal than Costco, I received a VIP experience, saved time and avoid the hassle of going to the dealer, which is like going to the dentist.  It doesn't matter if the dealer give you gourmet coffee and free hot dogs, I would rather spend my time with my family.

 
Raj K. | 2014-04-17

Found out about SMG through a mutual friend. Steve Kindle contacted me about helping me search for a car. I wanted something very specific, a manual BMW, something you can't find too many of these days. Steve took down exactly what I wanted, and didn't want in the car i was looking for. He kept in touch while he was searching for the car. He found a few I didn't really like, but he kept trying. Then he found it, a white 328i in 6spd manual! He gave me the price, and it was exactly where i wanted to be. I did some other research to double check on the price (because i wanted to make sure), I talked to a few sales guys at the dealership and they even said it was a great deal.

All in all, Steve Kindle did a GREAT job in helping me find a car! i HIGHLY recommend you call and ask for him specifically. He went above and beyond with finding the perfect car for me. I highly appreciated it.

 
Linia B. | 2014-04-06

I would never recommend any other place to even waste your time/energy! These guys helped me make my dream come true by hooking me up with the best deals yet friendly attitude in less than half a day... Contact them for a free quote and knowledgable advice!  I am confident that the circle of people who they work with won't disappoint you.

 
Tara B. | 2014-03-18

Thank you Sasha for helping us to get our new car .
I highly recommend Sasha and SMG auto brokers and again thank you Sasha for being super helpful and easy going throughout the process.

 
O B. | 2014-03-18

I was in the market for a new 2014 Lexus is 350 and i checked with two other brokers in LA Area .after talking to  Sasha barsamian who had  the 2 best price (which later on i realized was the  Real #1 price). the reason i went with him is because other brokers told me they can get me a lower monthly price rate , just to lure me to apply for finance . where Sasha was upfront and honest and he delivered exactly what he said .

I did filed the credit application with another broker, who promised me the lower payments .later on i  realized he lied and increased the payments even though i was on a tier 1 credit and that's how we based my payments.

Bottom line, by going with Sasha from SMG AUTO BROKERS you will get a straight shooter no b.s person who follow up on his word .

Thanks sasha

 
Daniel L. | 2014-03-16

Not sure why I didn't hear about brokers before..but this makes life so much easier when looking for your next vehicle.

Usually I have to contact a bunch of dealers, pick one and then haggle for hours before getting a price that I think is a good price only to find out that maybe it wasn't.

Tony, my broker from SMG was courteous, accommodating and diligent. He has a personality and style that makes you think you've known him for years.

He helped me get an awesome price on my new Benz, and really went above and beyond with customer service. ( I had given him a long list of cars I was interested in and he gave me quotes on all of them after contacting the dealers for the best deals).

I hate writing reviews, but I had to for Tony and SMG.

Thanks!

 
Tom P. | 2014-03-15

Initially was a bit skeptical about using an auto broker but with a family member's recommendation proceeded forward.  Hate going to car lots anyway, and as a salesman myself was in no mood to deal with pushy autosalesmen.
So have to admit I was very pleasantly surprised; Sebastian Wolski of SMG came through - found me just the right vehicles - actually more than I expected - and it really was easy with just one stop at one dealer to finalize.  Plus got extras thrown in and a great price to boot.  And all in a week or less.  Could I have done it myself?  Perhaps, but it would have been long and drawn out, and I might not have done as well - anyway am a happy new car owner - so it worked out well - reason enough to recommend going this route. Could probably go 5 stars - but hey gotta keep 'em on edge.

 
Kleez M. | 2014-03-05

At first I went into dealerships and tried to get a good deal on a car. This cost me a few hours at each dealership and in the end I got what I now realize were pretty crappy deals. A friend told me about SMG Auto and I figured I'd give it a shot even though I thought adding a middle man would probably increase the rates... Man was I wrong. I got into contact with Sasha and he found me a great deal much lower than any dealer and I ended up getting my favorite color with all the options I asked for.  I'm definitely coming back here for my next car.

 
Lander V. | 2014-02-28

I got in touch with Alex Hill from SMG Auto Brokers a couple weeks ago through a coworker. I had been planning on getting my first car for a while now, but was intimidated by the amount of information I didn't know and my lack of experience with car-buying. I knew I wanted a lease, but had no idea what car to get.

Alex was able to assist me from step one and was incredibly helpful, friendly, and went out of her way to explain to me what things I needed to consider to get my money's worth. She truly was open to any inquiries whether it was about different cars, deals, or payment plans. She was professional, timely, and most of all, patient with a hesitant, inexperienced car-shopper. And best of all, she took away all the hassle of dealing with pushy dealers who are looking to take advantage of new buyers.

I was incredibly grateful and excited when I was able to land a great deal on an Acura ILX and I absolutely love my car now. I highly recommend Alex and SMG Auto Brokers if you want an easy, friendly, money-saving experience!

 
Lucine G. | 2014-02-14

If you are looking to buy a car you definitely need to go to Sasha at SMG Auto. My husband and I were looking to purchase a new car, however did not want to go through the headache of having to make a deal with the dealership. Speaking with Sasha, he made us feel very comfortable to do business with him. All we did is tell him our budget the car we wanted and what options. Next thing we know we got a call that the deal is set and the car is ready. This was the quickest and easiest lease of our lives. I have told all my friends and family about SMG. GO SEE SASHA ASAP FOR YOUR NEW CAR!!!

 
Jeff T. | 2014-02-13

Jeff and Clyde are awesome!  I called them to get a price on a new Lexus IS250.  They blew away the dealers price.  They worked really hard to make me happy and were really nice to deal with.  No attitude at all, which is really rare when dealing with car dealers.  

I would recommend them to anyone and feel confident they would be taken care of.

 
Stu T. | 2014-02-07

I got a great deal, and i love my new car!! Clyde is the best! These guys were recommended to me by my friends. All of my mates were really happy with them, and their new cars, so I checked them out. Everything couldn't have gone better. Clyde went above and beyond! The service was exceptional. I can't recommend these guys enough!

 
Ryan S. | 2014-01-17

Within the last 3 months, we leased 2 cars with the help of Ara at SMG. With both cars, we weren't sure what we wanted to get. We had a set budget but weren't really excited about any particular car. Ara spent countless hours getting us quotes on various cars. First we thought we wanted the new Lexus IS250, but weren't that excited since we'd had 2 of them already. Then in the last minute, Ara found us a beautiful Audi A5, fully loaded for an amazing price and we are extremely satisfied with the car and with Ara's dedication (and his ability to put up with our ever-changing mind).
Then we wanted to surprise my Mom with a car for her birthday in October. After weeks and months of torturing Ara with quotes on more than a dozen different cars, we went with the Acura ITX and it ended up being a NYE surprise. She is very happy with it too.
Dealing with Ara and SMG is a great experience. It eliminated the bad feeling of walking into a dealership and walking out feeling like you just got taken for a ride. And not in a good way.
They are passionate about what they do, and they do it well.
About to get a car for my Dad in a month, and Ara's already working on that.
Give them a try. You'll never walk into a dealership again.

 
Ralph J. | 2014-01-09

SMG is unlike any other auto broker company I have worked with ( and I've worked with a few on the past), they go above and beyond to satisfy their customers. They searched high and low and got me EXACTLY what I wanted at the exact price I wanted to pay all the meanwhile doing it in the most friendly and professional way I have ever experienced. If you are in need of a new car don't even think about going anywhere else. These guys will be in business for a long time because they know to put the first! Great job guys, keep it up!

 
Raffi M. | 2014-01-09

I have negotiated numerous car deals in my life, and take great pride in always being able to get a deal that most other dealers cannot match.  For my most recent car, however, I decided to give Ara at SMG Auto Brokers a shot, since I had heard so many compliments about his service and the deals he was able to get.  Quite frankly, I was "testing" Ara and SMG Auto Brokers to see if they could actually get me a better deal than what I could negotiate on my own.  Much to my surprise, he in fact was able to get me a better deal than what I had (even after contacting 6-8 dealers directly).  I was waiting for the time to come where the deal would "fall through" due to a "surprise" that was not brought up before, since the deal sounded too good to be true.  Guess what? That time never came-- the car was delivered to me and I literally only spent 5 minutes signing the paperwork.  Not only was Ara able to get me a great deal, but his service was simply amazing.  He was quick to respond to any and all of my questions and concerns (no matter what time of day), always made himself available to me, and never made me feel like I was bothering him (even though I asked him tons of questions).  I cannot imagine a simpler or more efficient way of leasing/buying a car, and will definitely reach out to Ara for all of my future cars.  I highly recommend that you give Ara a shot and then you'll understand what a difference it really makes!

 
Annik D. | 2013-12-27

SMG is absolutely amazing!!! They got me the most fantastic deal on a lease on my dream car - the SLK Mercedes.  Woohooo, and I am loving my brand new SLK.  Thank you sooooooooooooooooo much SMG!  This was the easiest and best car lease purchase EVER.

 
Kristina N. | 2013-12-18

SMG got me an amazing deal!!! Way better than any independent dealership or other Auto Brokers that I have contacted. SMG guys have great customer service and surprisingly quick! I had signed a lease within a couple of days!!! If not the SMG guys I would be paying a lot more per month on my Mercedes CL250 and would have cashed out bank on the down payment. I would definitely do business with them again and recommend them to all my friends! Thanks Arlen & Clyde!

 
Taylor M. | 2013-12-11

Clyde was really helpful in finding me a lease. He worked within my budget and found me the exact car that I wanted within a matter of a few days. I absolutely love my car and wouldn't have been able to get as good of a deal on it without SMG!

 
Alejandra S. | 2013-11-28

I am very happy I found this place. Looking to lease a new car like I was, Arlen is the man to stop in and see. He found me the best deal in town, I didn't want to go 20 different dealers, I knew that much, so went to SMG because somebody told me SMG auto brokers could do that work for me and they did! Arlen got me super deal on my BMW 328i price was perfect for me and  process seamless. Thx again Arlen.

 
J R. | 2013-11-27

So my lease was up and I needed a car ASAP. SMG was recommended by a friend and I decided to call them. Shortly after I called them I got a call from SMG stating they had a car ready for me . After talking to them for 15 mins they got me the payments I wanted and my car was ready the same day. It took only 10 mins to sign some paper work and I was on my way ! Thank you so much guys for the superb customer service and a special thanks to Arlen who went above and beyond to get this deal done for me.
