Woman quit job to start Auto Consignment

She found a problem and made a million dollar business out of it Leslie Vander Baan turned selling her 1997 Jeep Cherokee into a million dollar business and she isn’t even 30 yet.

Four years ago, Vander Baan, who’d been around cars her entire life, found selling her vehicle a headache. She had to find time to meet with potential buyers after working long days at an auto auction. She had to sneak related phone calls during busy work hours. But she did all that because she knew she’d get more in a private sale than a dealer trade-in.

“It took several weeks. I remember the agony of my time … sitting on a curb while (the would-be buyer) drove it to a mechanic and they worried about my title and I worried about how they were going to pay me,” said Vander Baan, 28.

There must be a better way to sell a used car, she thought.

Maybe a consignment shop. She pictured a car lot where sellers could drop off their wheels and pay her to find a buyer.
