Paul and Lyn relocated from Maryland in 1979 for Paul to take a service manager position at a Volvo dealership in Richmond, Virginia. Two years later, they opened Paul’s, “The Volvo Specialist”. The Chester, Virginia couple have three children, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Lyn says that “God is so good and we are blessed in so many ways-especially with family.”

They are very grateful for their employees and customers. Business has been good to them since the day they opened the doors more than thirty years ago. They believe that when you treat customers with respect and honesty, they will remain loyal. Their motto is “If you are happy with our work, tell others. If you are not, tell us.”
