Customers Talk About Car Sales Consultant Barbara Goodman


“I never thought buying a car would be an enjoyable experience.  Not only did Volvo of Wellesley have exactly what I was looking for at a good price, but Barbara Goodman made buying the car an enjoyable experience.  Her approach to selling a car is different than most people.  You never feel like she is a salesperson, you feel like she is a friend who knows the car and tells you how to use the best of the car for your purposes.  She knows she is selling to smart people who can read about the basics of the car, but want to know how the car works.  She went over every element of the car in a pleasing and thorough, but quick way, so when you drove off, you would know what to do.  She is amazing with her knowledge of every element of the car, and she had answers to all of our questions.  Never any pressure and I felt like Barbara would do the right thing and sell me the right car for me and for my budget.  She made everything easy and made sure I was comfortable with the car and w  ith the process.  An exceptional person and salesperson.  Don’t bother going anywhere else.  My prior looking around turned out to be a waste of time and I never felt like I was getting attention, except when I came to Volvo of Wellesley.  I hope to be a repeat customer, as I can’t imagine an easier car buying process.”


“Volvo of Wellesley”

“I purchased a Certified Used Volvo V60 .The Salesperson was extremely helpful and easy to work with(Barbara Goodman) as well as knowledgeable of the product. Steve Page was also great to work with on the business end.. Steve S”


“Very pleasant buying experience.”

“We recently traveled 2 hours each way to Wellesley to look at a preowned Volvo S-80, and were very glad we did. From our initial contact with Alfonso Romano, it was a very positive experience. Barbara Goodman, our Sales Consultant, is very knowledgeable and extremely enjoyable to work with. There was no pressure to purchase the vehicle, but we did. It was just as advertised and exactly what we had been looking for. Steve Page is equally as knowledgeable. He reviewed the various programs we might be interested in, but again there was no pressure to purchase anything additional. We really liked the no pretense, no pressure attitude of the dealership and would definitely return. The car was delivered to us in NH within the week.”


“excellent service”

“Barbara Goodman was easy to work with and VERY knowledgeable. Steven Page was also excellent to work with. Very friendly team at Volvo of Wellesley. I will go back”‘



“We have been leasing Volvos for years, and recently leased two new Volvos. We worked with Barbara Goodman, and Vadim, the Manager, handled the signing of the lease documents. Both Barbara and Vadim were just wonderful to work with. Barbara is knowledgeable, thorough, and on top of every small detail. All we had to do was sign the documents and drive away. We have put our trust in Volvo of Wellesley and they have never let us down. We frankly couldn’t imagine taking our business anywhere else. Thank you Barbara and Vadim!”


“Great customer service & no pressure!”

“I had a great experience at Volvo of Wellesley! I worked with both Sales Consultant, Barbara Goodman, and Business Manager, Steve Page. They were both great to work with. Barbara was quick to make us feel welcome and provide a test drive. Steve worked closely with us to find a good finance option. All of my questions were answered thoroughly and I never felt any pressure during my experience. I love my new-to-me car! I am so thankful for the good experience I had with Barbara, Steve, and the entire dealership. On pick up day, Barbara provided a gift as a thank you for purchasing at the dealership… it was such a lovely touch to the experience!”

“nice experience”

Very comfortable atmosphere, and Barbara Goodman was wonderful to work with. She advocated for us and made sure our certified-used car was ready and looking great when we picked it up — even delayed us one day because she saw some scratches on the rear bumper and insisted that it get completely buffed and repainted. Overall a very good experience.

“Barbara was wonderful to work with through this process. She was very knowledgeable as well as understanding and supportive to my process and my goals. I never felt “managed” in a bad way but thoroughly supported. She doesn’t have any of the “in your face” sales approach that can make a trip to a dealer a nightmare. She felt like a “buyers agent”..consulting and helping me to think through what was most important to me as I consider two separate cars. At the time of delivery of my new car, Barbara spent as much time as it took to ensure I was thoroughly trained on ALL of the wonderful features of it…and since my car was fully load…there were many! I would be happy to buy a car from and recommend Barbara and Volvo of Wellesley to anyone.”

Exceptional Service in All Aspects”
“We recently bought a 2015 Volvo S60 and were impressed by the friendliness, professionalism, and knowledge that Barbara Goodman exhibited. She made the car-buying experience stress-free and helped us secure a great deal, and we highly recommend her and Volvo of Wellesley. Steven in the Biz Dept was also helpful and knowledgeable. Superlative service!”

“Highly recommend Barbara real down to earth person!!”
“Barbara Goodman was a real breath of fresh air. I have not purchased many vehicles nor do I enjoy the process of buying a car. To be honest who does. But I consider myself a good judge of character. Sure every sales person has a corporate line. But what made my buying experience at Volvo of Wellesley great was Barbara! She is genuine and a person I enjoyed taking a nice fall drive with. At one point she made the comment “now isn’t this nice”. I replied “Yes this car is very nice”. To which she replied “No I mean the scenery”. lol. If your looking to buy a car and not feel pressured, rushed or intimidated go see my friend Barbara.”
 “I contacted the dealer via email about a car they had for sale. Their response was prompt, courteous and instantly assured me that I was working with professionals. Vadim Kelly, Sales Manager, and Barbara Goodman, my sales associate, were fantastic. No pressure, no silly sales pitches, just a great all around experience. They knew the brand, the vehicle and made me comfortable at all times. I feel good about the process, feel like I got a great deal, and genuinely liked everyone I met. And I can’t say that about every other car I’ve purchased!”
The following is a response to a Volvo Cars of North America survey.
“Thank you, but we are being very well taken care of by Barbara Goodman at the Bernardi auto group in Wellesley MA..  She’s the best sales person we’ve ever dealt with; she’s knowledgeable, has a delightful personality and remains in touch to make sure all our questions are answered.  We’ve had two meetings with her – post purchase – and will schedule another in the next day or two.  We’re in good hands with Barbara, have filled out the Volvo satisfaction questionnaire, and further contact re our purchase, satisfaction, etc. isn’t necessary.”
“Barbara was extremely friendly and very helpful and efficient in helping me process my purchase, as was her support crew. Very positive experience, would (and will) definitely recommend her. Only negative was number of dealership follow-ups within 24 hours after the first visit (and they’re receptive to comments!).”
“Barbara thank you for taking care of my daughter, and thank you for having the strength to come through the storm you faced with your health. You are inspiring to many. Siri sent me this email about you, I believe she is with you now. If or should I say when you see me again it may be to buy a car, but it will certainly be to give you a big hug.
