Low Country Motors was founded by Michael A. Cody in 1996. Mike the youngest of five brothers and sisters grew up in Pennsylvania, watching his father a former Navy man work extremely hard and raise his family. His father fell victim to the harsh reality of big business and was cut short of his position and in effect forced into early retirement. Knowing the pain this caused his father and family, Mike vowed to make sure he was never in the same position and was able to control his own destiny.
Born in New York City and later raised in Pennsburg, Pa. Mike was a great athlete in High School and went on to attend Kutztown University. He attended the university for awhile and then took it upon himself to interview at a car dealership and got the job. He quickly found his natural talent of being able to open the lines of communication between himself and his customers to meet their needs and not only sell them their vehicle but retain their business for years to come. This talent did not go unnoticed and quickly turned into a management position for him at Red Hill Ford.
Mike was certainly enjoying his rise up the company ladder but was still wanting more, he found himself looking for the next step. This next step ended up being the start of his family and also becoming the General Sales Manager at Hans BMW. This proved to a catalyst to his love for Imports and also developed the knowledge and skill to be able to find the value in vehicles that his customers wanted. Mike spent a few very successful years at Hans but was still looking for his next great opportunity. Which just happened to be laying in the Automotive news on his desk one morning. Hilton Head BMW was hiring a salesperson with management experience and sales skills, sounded like the perfect fit.
This had been a far reach from his previous job change that was only 20 minutes down the road. This would mean a complete relocation of his family from Pennsylvania to South Carolina. With his love for boating and the beach Mike decided this was the place for him and the time to try it. Knowing full well anything could happen he packed up and headed south!
Accepting the position at Heritage Motors he was able to get to know the island and this new way of life. He also was able to see the need to provide customers with quality pre owned vehicles both import and domestics at fair prices, with a Straight Talk, No Hassles attitude.
Mike still knew that he wanted something more and was looking for the right opportunity. He was patient and was working hard and a top Salesman for the BMW store the entire time he was there. He did not realize it but soon he would be selling a car to a customer that would in turn present the opportunity to make his dream of owning his own business and controlling his own destiny a reality. Ernst Bruderer a good customer of Mike's told him that he was such a great salesperson that he should own his own car lot. Mike in turn said he would love to but doesn't have the capital to get started the business he envisioned. As luck would have it Ernst and Mike would have a few more conversations on the topic and here now I sit working with Mike and looking out the windows of Low Country Motors getting ready to celebrate it's 25th year in business!
Wherever you are on Hilton Head Island or in Bluffton you will always remember his voice and the famous Low Country Motors tagline, "And Remember, Everybody Drives A Used Car."
