Joel is completely committed to finding solutions for you.  He is a certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence as a technician and a service advisor.  This means that he is trained not only to fix cars, but to listen to you, and more importantly, to communicate your information to the technicians and then back to you.  Ill let him tell you more about himself.

“Hello my name is Joel Sarantos. I have been a service advisor at Advanced Auto Pros since August, 2007. I have always been interested in automobiles. Even as a young guy I was into racing remote controlled cars. My interest grew as I got older and I attended Front Range Community college, for the automotive technology program. I started out as a technician in the shop here. Now I have the privilege of working with the people of Greeley and helping them solve their automotive problems. Outside of the shop I like to spend time with my family and play guitar.”   Joel definitely has a passion for getting problems solved. I’m proud to have him as a cornerstone of our organization.

Steve and Dawn

Steve Lapp ASE Master Certified Technician - Advanced L1 diagnostic certification

Steve is by far the most conscientious and hard working person I’ve ever met.  He has been an integral part of Advanced Auto Pros for well over a decade now.

As a Master Certified Technician with Advanced L1 diagnostic certification, there is no doubt that he can fix cars.  But what’s more important in his current position is his concern for people.  As a family man he understands the importance of keeping your family’s cars safe and dependable.

After 23 years in Colorado and 12 years at Advanced Auto Pros he and his wife Dawn decided to spend some time at the beach.  He moved to Bradenton Florida where he continued to work as an auto tech.  He enjoyed his time there and the nice sunsets on the gulf, but after two and a half years it was time to come home; he and his wife missed their youngest daughter too much. As a company, and personally, I can’t begin to tell you how much we missed Steve.  In March of 2013 we were thrill to have him back at Advanced Auto Pros.  Steve and Dawn continue to enjoy the volunteer work they do in the ministry and now Dawn is able to volunteer full time while not being required to work.

Steve is an extremely positive person and you will find him really easy to work with, I am honored to have him as a yet another cornerstone of our organization.
