Jim Anthis is the founder and President of Evia Auto Sales Inc. Jim founded Evia in 1996 opening his first store in Glens Falls.
The goal in establishing Evia was to sell quality, affordable used cars. Jim quickly realized that many people didn't have enough savings to purchase a used car and lacked the credit the banks required for a loan. Wanting to help his customers, Jim offered second chance financing as a "buy here pay here"store.
Wanting to offer more to Evia's customers Jim partnered with Credit Acceptance Corporation in 2001 which enabled him to offer Guaranteed Credit Approval. Not only could Evia deliver a newer vehicle with less down, but every vehicle was quoted with a minimum 2 year or 24 month extended service contract.
Evia has sold more vehicles with Credit Acceptance than all other area dealerships combined.
Why does Evia out perform all other area stores? Our commitment to the program as well as our relationship with Credit Acceptance. Jim's experience with Credit Acceptance includes serving two years as the National Dealer Partner Council's co-chairman. No one else in the area has that kind of experience.
In March 2008 Patrick Wright was hired as sales and finance manager. Pat's experience includes over twenty five years in the local auto industry.
