Greg James Loratonda
Sales Consultant

Hello drivers everywhere. Greg James here. My journey as an Ohio native, beginning a 
number of years ago, has most recently led to the  doors of Miracle Motor Mart .

After majoring in marketing at Ohio State University, I embarked on a continuous 35 years 
of sales and entrepreneurial pursuits with a good degree of success, satisfaction and adventure.

The last 20 years has been spent in the Columbus area with my wife, and my son, who after 18 
years made it out of the house and off to school at OU Athens.

My  past  includes a spectrum of activities including  flying aerobatic airplanes, sky diving,   flying paraplanes,  
scuba diving,  sailing the Caribbean, water snow skiing, hiking the Rocky Mountains,  bungee jumping, 
white water rafting,  spending time  as a recreational flight instructor, and  traveling the southern US in a 
band.  During these memorable times I could  be found living  in  Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, 
Maryland, Georgia, and of course, good ole Ohio.

If, as they say; "experience is the best teacher," I have had my share to draw from. The take-away is
a lifetime of challenges, learning moments, and gut-feelings that can be drawn upon to understand and 
relate to  anyone who walks through the door at MMM. So now that you know a little about me, come on 
in and  let's have a conversation about you. Let's see what we can do to make your life a better one by 
finding  the perfect  car, SUV, truck or van that will meet your needs. Once you're here you'll know you've 
made the right choice.

Rodney Cook "RC" joined the Miracle Motor Mart Team in March, 2008. "The Car business is a fascinating opportunity to explore so many aspects of the human experience that it has held my attention for over 20 years! No ceilingno floorjust an open door to step through every day and let your imagination soar! Hard work pays off in the car business and smart work rewards you even more! If the customer wins then you win! A simple formula my folks impressed upon me long ago works great when you apply it in the business of sales, namely, if you help enough people get what they want, then you'll get everything you want out of life! At Miracle Motor Mart the Golden Rule is our maxim: 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' My parents' formula and Miracle's maxim have served me very well in my sales profession, being the foundation for countless experiences of personal joy.  I've felt when the client says"Great job!" with a heartfelt "Thank you!".  At Miracle Motor Mart we are truly winning with people and our formulas for success apply to work and home alike! A well balanced life pays off both at home and in the office, so we are closed on Sundays to help give our employees quality time with their families. Come check us out today and join the Miracle Family. Miracle Motor Mart is your Miracle Motor Place to put on the top of your List!"
