Summers Rocky Mountains Motors first opened in 1996 by owners Hagle and his wife Linda Summers. A tiny little gravel lot in Montrose Colorado is where it all began. Hagle Summers loved the auto industry and had big dreams of having his own family owned dealership. Hagle and Linda's son Steven, at a very young age learned all the ropes when it came to every important aspect of the auto industry. They have always been about WHATEVER IT TAKES to not only make the customer HAPPY & SATISFIED but to have them coming back time and time again. Soon they realized that the dream of their family owned dealership was coming true! That little tiny gravel lot was just too small and the name Summers was big on the Western Slope. It was time to expand and find a location that was perfect for the new Summers Rocky Mountain Motors. The Home of Summers was found in Delta Colorado only twenty miles north of Montrose. Doors opened at the Delta location spring of 2001. Summers Rocky Mountain Motors has YEARS of four county reputation for fast, friendly, and reliable service & help. Now in business for 20 plus years, Summers continues to stomp the competition with number one customer satisfaction. Also putting the most reliable preloved automobiles on the road.

I was born in Glenwood Springs Co and at the age of 9 my parents moved to Montrose to start their second small business. This is when I realized my parents had children for employees (jk).My Mom and Dad started Summers Rocky Mountain Motors in 1996 and this is where I began my career in the car biz. I started out detailing, then mechanics, sales, financing and now owner operator. Small business has been imbedded in my brain and my father always told me small business is a blessing to help others. I enjoy working alongside my mother, father, sister and wife. Working beside the people you love most is the best joy any man could have. My wife Casey and I have two boys Trenten 7 and Dalten 3.My boys keep me busy and I enjoy watching them grow. On my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. I love taking my boys fishing, camping and riding dirt bikes. This business has given me the opportunity to meet new families that enjoy all walks of life. Helping people reach their dreams in nice reliable vehicles has been the best part of the business. Our family would love to meet your family.

Joni Tims - Asst. Sales Manager

I was born in Illinois but have spent most my life in beautiful Colorado. I am a single mother of 2 boys that I try daily to get to listen to me...not funny. They are 4 and 7 years old. I know some of you single moms can relate! I will do just about anything fun from sky diving, 4 wheeling, and seeking extreme thrill rides, to singing, reading and being a home body. I love being close to family and partnering with my brother in the car industry. I have been around cars the good part of my life and started detailing when I was young and washing the cars on the lot once a week. I moved into being a title clerk, then into finance and car sales. I love all aspects of the company and business from cars of course to the people that we come in contact with, friends we make, and relationships we build. I look forward to meeting you, your family, and friends and becoming the go to place to buy your next vehicle and the place where you will want to send anyone you know and to share your pleasant experience with. Thanks for taking the time to visit us online and to get to know our staff and company better. 

Cassandra Summers - Carwash Operations Manager

I was born in Delta Colorado and raised in Peagreen Co 5 miles west of Olathe. Yes, am from around these parts. My name is Cassandra but many of you know me as Casey. I am energetic and outgoing and often told I have the ability to make everyone smile. I met Steve Summers at the age of 17 and remained great friends with him over the years. When It came time to purchase my next vehicle, my dad told me” we are going down to Summers and seeing Steve”. Who would have thought that the guy selling me my car would be my future husband. In 2010 Steven asked me to join his family business .I started in the office answering phones, filing papers and greeting customers. Then soon made my way to sales. Steve and I worked hand in hand selling cars for the next two years. I love being part of the special moments when customers drive off in a vehicle of their dreams. I have had many job titles at Summers over the last 6 years. Sales, financing, marketing and carwash manager. I have watched my husband over the years have so much passion for his family owned business. He has taught me everything I know in giving outstanding customer service. I absolutely love being a part of his team. Some ask me,” how can you work for your husband’, and a simply say, “easy I get to see my best friend everyday”. Steve and I have two amazing little boys 3 and 7 that bring us joy every day. I love spending time with my family. On our off time we love fishing, camping and riding dirt bikes and four wheelers. When it comes to this family owned and operated business, I’d say the best part is meeting great people and working with family. Making people smile is what we do here at Summers and I look forward to your family meeting mine.

Having lived on the Western Slope of Colorado for all my life, except for four years spent in Florida going to college ,I can honestly say I love the mountains !What a privilege to live where all the outdoors you could ever want is only minutes away! Twenty five years ago I met the love of my life and life has been a great adventure ever since. Mark and I are blessed with two children, Makayla and Marshall. They both caught the wonderful work-ethic of their dad and have great jobs. I had the opportunity to stay at home and raise the kids, but once they were grown I came to work for Summers Rocky Mountain Motors in 2013 and work in the office. The Summers have a way of making everyone feel like family and have a genuine concern for each employee and customer. I look forward to coming to work each day but….how can you consider it “work” when you get to see some of the finest vehicles roll through here. Come see us; we’d love to share in your joy of finding the perfect vehicle.

I was born oversees. My dad was in the Marine Corps. which gave me the opportunity to travel to many different countries and have acquired many different cultural and language skills. I have now been in the Western Slope Area of Colorado for 26 years and in my spare time I love to keep up with football and anything to do with the outdoors. Living in Colorado I can drive any direction and find an adventure to fill my day. I also love to BBQ and spend time with my family. I am beginning my 4th yr. at Summers and have found out that working with a Mom & Pops store with a reputation of serving the community for so many years is the only way to go. I was a customer first and truly had a car buying experience that was above par which is unheard of. Now that I am a part of the Summers family I intend to extend the relationship to you and yours. I am a professional in customer care and would invite you to enjoy buying your next vehicle! Come see me!

I was born and raised in Montrose. I enjoy the simple things in life and love spending my free time with my wife. I've worked with Summers just under 4 yrs. and feel like I've found a happy place to be. They are a family owned business and they make you feel like part of the family. I love cars, driving cars, getting acquainted with new models and features, and meeting new people. I bought a truck from Steve Summers and felt like I had really made a friend. So I kept in touch and now am happy to be part of their team. I have confidence that you will have the same positive experience and look forward to meeting you and your family.

I was born in New Orleans and raised most of my life in the south.When I finally made my way to the Western Slope about 13 years ago, I was completely sold. I had never seen such beauty, and never had met nicer people than I have here. I’ve been driving big rigs in Colorado for about 12 years and have seen so much awesome countryside. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. We love spending time outdoors.Camping, fishing, hiking, swimming, and just enjoying everything the Western Slope has to offer. Now that I have joined the Summers Rocky Mountain Motors team, I look forward to meeting more of the fantastic people and helping them take advantage of our incredible selection of vehicles. I feel very blessed to be a part of the team, and look forward to helping you find the perfect car, truck, or suv of your dreams!
