Florida Fine Cars’ Island Adventure!

MIAMI – Florida Fine Cars sales consultant Kelly Wallace grew up in the U.S. Virgin Islands so when a customer from St. Thomas called to inquire about a vehicle, the pair immediately hit it off.


Florida Fine Cars sales consultant Kelly Wallace, originally from the Virgin Islands, sold a vehicle long-distance to a customer there, then got a photo of him with the vehicle when she vacationed there.

Wallace, who is also from St. Thomas, explained the car buying process to customer Jalaunie George, sent the paperwork to him in St. Thomas and then sealed the deal on a $20,488 2015 white Ford Transit van. The vehicle was subsequently shipped to the Virgin Islands.

St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, is located about 1,200 miles from Miami.

But the story doesn’t end there. In fact, it picked up again 1,200 miles from South Florida when Wallace met the happy customer face-to-face when she was home in St. Thomas on vacation.

George, a taxi driver and police officer for the Virgin Islands Port Authority, picked Wallace and her mother up at the airport in his Florida Fine Cars used transit van.

“We kept in touch (after the sale),” Wallace explained. “I wanted to do a delivery photo.”

And she got one, of herself with George in St. Thomas standing next to the used van she sold him.

“I think I was more excited than him. It is really an awesome moment in your career to see one of your vehicles travel so far to its new owner,” she noted.

“It was nice to meet Kelly,” George said in an interview from the Virgin Islands. “The van runs fine.”


Magen’s Bay, in St. Thomas, is a popular tourist attraction.

St. Thomas is the gateway island of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. The beautiful island is known for its beaches, snorkeling and sportfishing.

Wallace, who has been selling used cars about a year, said the experience was satisfying. She was thrilled to get a ride in the vehicle she sold George.NewFCCLogo

“Mr. Jalaunie George turned out to be a taxi driver who scheduled me and my family’s pick up at the airport in the van we sold. Super cool moment!” Wallace said. “He uses the van daily to trek up all the crazy mountains and shuttle tourists around the scenic routes of the island.”

And the service she got was second to none.

“He took us to the other side of the island where there’s a ferry so we could continue island-hopping,” Wallace added.

Florida Fine Cars offers nearly 1,500 quality used cars for sale priced thousands below retail at its three locations combined. Florida Fine Cars dealerships are conveniently located in West Palm Beach near Palm Beach International Airport and just off Florida’s Turnpike in Hollywood and Miami
