Eddie Hale & Greg Reine

Eddie Hale - Neighborhood Autos (Decatur) and Greg Reine - Auto Liquidators (Dallas)

Eddie Hale has been in the automotive industry for over 30 years. In 1988 he started working for James Wood Auto in Decatur, TX focused primarily on the franchise side of the business. In 2006 he moved over to the BHPH operation for the auto group and became manager of Neighborhood Autos. Today he is the CEO of Neighborhood Autos with 4 locations, and they sell over 1200 vehicle annually. Eddie is considered one of the foremost authorities when it comes to operating a BHPH operation.

Greg Reine, owner of Auto Liquidators, dove in head-first to the BHPH industry on his own in 1991. He has experienced many ups and downs, and significant changes in our industry, including inventory, customers, and regulations in the last 31 years. His operation has currently grown to 3 locations, with 2365 active accounts, delivering approximately 1400 units annually, and maintains a frontline inventory of about 200 units among all locations with very minimal leveraging.
