The Landmark Family
Lee sold his first car when he was 13 years old. After retiring as a petroleum engineer who travelled across the world, Lee started working in the car business. In 1992, he opened Landmark Auto Sales Ltd. With up to six locations at one point in time, Landmark is the longest continually running family owned used car dealership in Victoria. Lee has sold over 20,000 cars in this time, and loves it every day.
Carey truly is a member of the Landmark family as he and Lee are actual cousins. With over 50 years experience in the automotive industry, Carey is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to finding you the right vehicle. Having owned multiple dealerships, such as the original Colwood Car Mart, and the first Suzuki Dealership in Canada, Carey's earned his reputation as one of the best in the business. His kind and courteous manner got him to the top manager position of Metro Lexus Toyota, where he eventually retired. We are fortunate to have him here with us. His confident easy-going attitude makes customers feel instantly at home.
Lee's second son, Brodi aka “The Bull” spent his youth excelling in a myriad of sports including lacrosse, hockey and football. Brodi played for the Victoria Rebels and was recruited to University football. Brodi chose a different path and has returned to us after winning the World Men’s Super Heavy Weight Sumo Wrestling Championship at the US Open and finishing a successful pro sumo wrestling career as the only North American in the elite Japanese Professional Sumo Wrestling League (Google Canadian Sumo).
Having spent most of his life around the car lots, Brodi first helped with washing cars, and gradually worked his way up through his youth to stamping contracts, delivering cars to various detail and automotive repair shops, appraising wholesale units, general sales, and now finally management. "The car lot is second nature to me; it's home. I love what I do and the people I meet."
Kolton, or "Hoss" as he's known by friends, also played hockey, football and lacrosse here in Victoria and is currently in his fifth season with the Victoria Rebels Football team as a starting offensive lineman. He is the youngest child and his Dad still calls him ‘Little Hoss’ even though he now stands about 6’3” and weighs 305lbs! Probably the kindest and nicest kid you will ever meet (off the football field), Kolton will soon be heading to Simon Fraser University to complete his degree in Criminology and begin his RCMP career. Kolton handles all of the online advertising for Landmark, including photography, write up details, and featured savings events. In addition to this, Kolton washes and details cars, maintains the lot exterior and the shop.
While we are bragging……Lee’s oldest child, daughter Victoria is now DOCTOR! Victoria Lee Henderson! ......and eldest son Kodi is a successful member of the gain automotive group. When Lee starts getting grandchildren he may never shut up! LOL!
Landmark Auto Sales truly is a family-built business. Our goal is to provide people with safe, reliable, and affordable transportation, to meet great people and to make some friends along the way. With prices ranging from $888 to $14,888, the majority of our cars priced between $2000 and $5000. We are one of the few remaining dealerships that still maintain that much needed low-cost inventory. If we don't have what you want, we will try to point you in the right direction. All of our cars are road tested and safety inspected by an independent fully-licensed mechanic. Our $285 documentation fee covers car-proof, lien checks, any out of province registration costs, damage claim reports, a full safety inspection and a detailed bill of sale. “Victoria’s lowest doc fee” is clearly posted in the window of every car for sale. Transparency is our focus.
We have relied on happy customers and word of mouth to stay in business for so long while so many others come and go. It is this kind of care and attitude that has kept us rolling in Victoria for over 27 years, where we remain Victoria’s longest continually running independent used car lot. We don't have flat screen TVs, espresso coffee makers, leather seated lounge areas or wear thousand dollar three piece suits and $500 Gucci shoes. We keep our overhead low so you can afford to provide these things for you and your family if you want them. We are not all fine and fancy but we do provide a written inspection report sheet and a 3 month bumper-to-bumper service warranty, (ask for details) on every car we sell. For your peace of mind, we also offer Lubrico Warranty coverage for up to 8 years that cover you all across North America! We are happy to answer questions, and try to find the car that best suits YOU and your budget. Please stop by and give us a chance to meet you, make new friends and perhaps provide your next “perfect” used car!
