After selling hot wheels for the likes of Aston Martin, Bugatti, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce for more than 14 years, Melissa Perry has stepped into the driver’s seat to launch The Perry Group (theperrygroupllc.com), an O.C.-based luxury brokerage and concierge company that will deliver the exotic ride of your dreams directly to your door.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I moved to Orange County about 3 ½ years ago to help run Rolls-Royce Motor Cars OC as its brand manager. During that time, I unfortunately became very sick, where I was constantly in and out of the hospital and had three lung surgeries. A lot of things changed during and after that time. My drive to sell and succeed never left my mind but my perspective on life and my dreams did. So, in June 2019, I decided to step out on my own and pursue my dream of having my own company.
What is The Perry Group all about?
We find or source the exact car a customer is looking for, then negotiate the most aggressive lease, finance or cash purchase before delivering the car to their door. We have relationships with dealers across the United States and know the exotic and luxury car industries inside and out.
In your opinion, what are the most coveted rides of 2020?
Definitely the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin Vantage
Who are some of your most notable clients?
Ellen DeGeneres, Kylie Jenner, Tyrann Mathieu and Aqib Talib
