Erica Holmes
Sales and Leasing Consultant
(205) 278-4853

I joined the Jim Burke family in April of 2020, as a member of the Hyundai team. I was actually a customer at the Hyundai showroom, and have been on the other side of the customer desk. I find what I do to be most rewarding when customers trust me with the process of purchasing their new vehicle, and when I am able to see the deal through to completion. My philosophy in life is to try my best to understand the differences in people and to always treat others the way I would want to be treated. After purchasing for myself I can truly say I believe in the statement of being Backed By Burke…
