My family and I have lived in the Pacific Northwest our entire lives and wouldn’t dream of moving anywhere else. I‘m married and have 4 children.  I’ve spent the last 15 years training people in the art of customer service as a call center manager.  I’m a recent addition to not only the Dick Hannah dealerships, but also the automotive industry, I’m looking forward to growing with Dick Hannah dealerships and the opportunity to show customers a great way to purchase a car.

Customer Reviews

Greg made this an easy and great experience! He really provided me with great reasons to by from Dick Hannah and worked hard to earn my business. Would highly recommend!

Michael Jackson

Buying a used car can be a frustrating process, but our salesman, Greg, made it easy and found me the perfect car. When there were some issues after the deal was done, Greg and Ricky were very helpful and worked really hard to get them resolved.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have spent 12 of my 30 years in the food industry where I was a dish washer, bus boy, lead server and finished as a bartender. I joined the Dick Hannah Family 2 years ago. I am friendly, outgoing and aim to find the perfect car for my guest. The majority of my sales now are from repeat and referral customers! When I get some free time I enjoy Disc Golf, Hiking and Archery target shooting

Customer Reviews

So far, I have had nothing but the best of service and assistance from the fine folks at Dick Hannah Volkswagen at the Vancouver Mall location. Starting with my sales person Nick Blystone, who was more than excellent! Very informative and catering, listens well to specifications and knows what you’re looking for almost before you know it! Even after returning a year later to get some service, he has always been friendly and even remembers my name! As for the service; quick, efficient, and professional. All I wanted was a little check on a wiring issue I was having; and they did a full inspection and found several issues I was unaware of. Just an overall excellent experience. It’s nice having peace of mind when it comes to your car. Especially when you drive out of town every day for work

Skyler Lopez

Our car had been totaled so we had to purchase a car quickly. After some disappointing experiences at other lots we connected with Nick at Dick Hannah VW. We found the car we wanted but just weren’t ready to finalize it yet, we needed to sleep on it. We were assured that the offer would be valid for 24 hours assuming the car was still available. The next morning we decided to accept the offer. After a quick call to Nick and a few signatures we drove away in the perfect vehicle for our needs. We never felt pressured or pushed into making a decision before we were ready. Thank you Nick!

Born into a family of 6 from the Soviet Union- I’ve always had to work hard and help out where I could. I’ve never stopped. I always work hard to live out my life with a heart of gratitude for the blessings I was allowed by moving here and being granted my citizenship. Knowing how things can be- I try to pass on the favor back to my community through great service and upright business ethics. I went to Clark College, I’ve run both the Portland and Vancouver Marathons, and I love to rock climb. I strive to put that same persistence towards helping my clients finding the perfect car!

Customer Reviews

Dimitry was excellent to work with. He was very professional and did everything possible to give us what we asked for. I definitely recommended seeing Dimitry and all of the other kind staff at Dick Hannah Volkswagen Vancouver!

Kevin Stolle

Dimitry was awesome!!! He was very patient as I made my decision and he really worked hard to find a new car that would fit within my budget. He is very customer focused and genuinely cares about the customers needs. Keep this guy on the payroll

I am a native of our great Pacific Northwest having grown up and graduated in Gresham, Oregon. I have been a member of the Dick Hannah Volkswagen team since 2012 and am a Master Certified Volkswagen Associate; a long way to say that I can answer most questions about our current and many of our past models. During my free time I enjoy exploring our outdoors via hiking, and various outdoor sports. I am an avid basketball fan and enjoy a friendly match during my off hours. I look forward to assisting you.

Customer Reviews

This was my 4th purchase from a Hannah dealership, and my 3rd from this VW Dealer. I’ve been lucky enough to have the same salesman the last 3 times. Javan Alibabaie is his name and he’s awesome. Knowledgeable. Doesn’t push. Understanding when you want to look around. Great experience.

Michael Grimm

After two days of test drives and some very uncomfortable, high pressure sales tactics at other dealerships, working with Javan Alibabaie at Dick hannah Volkswagen was a refreshing change. He was polite, knowledgeable, and listened to my needs. He helped me get the payment I wanted and I love my car. I would be happy to buy another from Javin and the Hannah family of dealerships.

My name is Jacob Treacy, I was born and raised in SW Washington, both of my parents are local real-estate agents. I middle child with 2 sisters and 1 brother. I attended and graduated from Camas High School. I am an avid VW enthusiast as I currently am driving a 2016 GTI. On my free time I enjoy the outdoors primarily snowboarding or spending time on the water.

Customer Reviews

Jacob Treacy was wonderful. Caring, quick, professional and courteous as was the rest of the staff. I was impressed across the board with the ease of the car buying process. I might actually go back and get another from them myself, but in the meantime I’m urging anyone that’s buying a car to, at the least, check them out. :-)

Daniel T.

Jacob (saleman) was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make my purchase seem less, and weren’t t pushy and overall listened to why I was buying a car. I will buy from this location again in the near future and tell my friends too.

I had a very pleasant experience here! George Chiong was an awesome salesman - super helpful, kind, and honest. I’ll definitely be leasing again from Geo

Sammi Bieber

Considering the whole TDI emissions scandal, me and my boyfriend Jonte were hesitant on purchasing another vehicle through vw until George, a sale rep for Dick Hannah VW, contacted me and worked out a deal to get me into a 2016 gti. The fact that he was so understanding of my concerns with VW, he did not make me and my boyfriend feel pressured into buying a car. George was so laid back and made me feel comfortable with the purchase I was making!

I had a wonderful experience with Enzo and Travis today! I came in apprehensive because I have had difficulties in the past with having poor credit and being so young! I got a great prince for a used 2015 VW Jetta and it was all handled quickly and I got to leave with it the same day! :D super awesome guys, keep up the good work!

Kendra Mapes

I worked with Enzo Essathi this and he was very professional and helped me through the process of getting my car. He was knowledgeable about the product. I would work with him again.

Customer Reviews

Larry was very friendly, quick, and helpful! He made me feel very comfortable and answered any questions I had. Definitely would recommend him for any of your vehicle purchase needs.

Jessie Leone

I do not like sales people at all and I really dislike being pushed or rushed into making a decision. That is why, at first, I was looking to buy from a private owner, but I am very glad that I took my friends advice and went to Dick Hannah! I’m also a very cautious person and I do lots of research before making any big decisions. Since it was my first time buying a car I had many questions about loans, financing, and other things I did not understand. Mr. Larry Llorente wa...s so patient with me! Not only did he answer every single one of my questions, but If I didn’t understand something he would discuss it with me until I did. I got a very genuine feeling about his nature. He was never pushy, very kind, and very knowledgable. I could tell that he really wanted to go to bat for me and do whatever he could to help me get into the truck of my dreams. I never thought I’d be able to afford a Toyota Tacoma and now I can all thanks to Larry at Dick Hannah! I never thought I’d have something good to say about a dealership, but this place is honest, fair, and has good people working there that don’t just care about putting money in their pockets. I highly recommend them!

We had a difficult situation with our 2012 TDI Jetta. Making a deal work out for our situation, was nothing short of a hard worked for miracle on the part of a very kind and patient salesman. Austin Pounders was all that and more. We are very glad that the 3rd vehicle we purchased from Dick Hannah, over the last 25yrs, was handled with the kind of care we began with. Consistency of quality care is key! Thank You, Austin and Dick Hannah

Tina Lusk

Just wanted too thank Austin Pounders for an excellent job in getting the car I wanted...Everyone at Dick Hannah Volkswagen in Vancouver Washington...They went too above and beyond their job description, I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience and service they provided me. Will be a repeat customer for years too come...Thank u!!!

I had a wonderful experience buying a car at Dick Hannah!! My salesman Ryan went above and beyond to get me into a car! He went so far as to come and pick me up personally when my car broke down on the freeway when I was on my way to the dealership to meet him. He’s very patient and was very attentive to my needs. If you’re in the market for a new car, Ryan is your man to get the job done!

Renee W.

I was recently browsing the lot and had a good experience, which usually isn’t the case when car shopping. The salesman, Ryan I believe, was very knowledgeable about the models I was interested in and seemed like cool honest dude overall... Definitely worth the trip, way to make car shopping stress free!
