    Internet Sales

    I've worked in the Auto Industry for 20 plus years. I know the Office and Financial aspects of a Dealership, but now it's time to learn the Sales end. Although i have just been working in Sales for a short time, i absolutely love it!! I get to meet and talk to awesome people everyday, and help make buying a car a fun experience.
    A great Dealership starts at the top. Not only do the Giles respect and make their guests feel special, they also treat their employees that way. When an employee is happy on the job, it's easy to pass that on to the customers.
    If you want to meet great people and buy a great car, come on in and see me.

  • Kelli Basilone - Sales
    Vehicle Upgrade Specialist

    Hi I'm Kelli! I am new to the Motorcars family and am really enjoying the welcoming I've gotten, the vehicle upgrade position, and the personalities of my new co-workers. Thank you all for making me laugh and smile! I live with my nine-year-old daughter Mara and our silly, sweet little dog Meadow in Macedonia. On Halloween night, I became engaged to a wonderful man who happens to live in Florida and will have to give up his beach to move back to Ohio. Might be a long engagement because let's face it: that's a hard sell. Whatever it is, we are in it together. I love my friends and family, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the whole Cleveland experience, music, working out, learning about cars, wine and great food but also just basic comfort food like pizza, macaroni and cheese, and popcorn. My favorite sound is hearing my Mara spontaneously plug-in and play her Fender Telecaster guitar. She's amazing!

  • Jay Fistek - Service
    Service Advisor

    HI! My name's Jay Fistek, and I've been with Motorcars for almost 4 years now. Boy, time does fly! I'm a native Clevelander, but have lived in Baltimore, New York, Chicago, and Indianapolis…whew! I love my Tribe, but am on the fence about the Browns these days. And now that good 'ol what's-his-name is back with the Cavs, I may just go back to being a basketball fan. In my spare time, I like playing golf, and tennis, and going for long walks in our Metroparks. My "teammates" here at Motorcars are like superheros, and make each day an adventure. So I guess that kinda makes me a superhero too, which is very helpful since I'm a single dad of 3 little boys (my superpower? the ability to sleep anywhere). I stand sentry at the Express Maintenance desk, and look forward to seeing all our new Toyota family members and helping them with their express maintenance needs!
