B.A.B. INC. formed a Corporation in 2003, and opened BROOKS MOTOR COMPANY in January of 2006.  Bobby Brooks grew up locally in Dupo Illinois and has 33 years in the car business.

Bobby is also an owner at ARCHWAY AUTO TRANSPORT/ARCHWAY AUTO EXPRESS, which specializes in transport and shuttle of cars and trucks all over the lower 48 states.

Being a small business owner has given me the opportunity to build relationships with my customers and to be involved in our local community. I find that most customers dread the car shopping experience. I take pride in making it as effortless as possible, if it's a smooth transaction for my customer then I've done my job well. I specialize in offering great cars and trucks at a reasonable price. We service our cars, and make sure that you have a premium product.  With that being said, WE HAVE A 1 MONTH / 1,000 MILE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY.  I have learned along the way that if it's a fair deal for you, and a fair deal for Brooks Motor Company, then it's a great deal all around. As a small business, we take the time to provide the up most service even after the sale is complete. Please consider us on your next purchase. If we do not have what you are looking for, we will do our best to find it. WE ALSO BUY CARS, AND TRUCKS. DON'T TRADE YOURS WITHOUT CHECKING WITH US 1ST. YOU MAY BE LEAVING MONEY $$ ON THE TABLE. Thanks for looking, and thanks for considering BROOKS MOTOR COMPANY. I'm proud to say I have been doing this since 1989, and operating my own company since 2003. I take great pride in the fact that we have an A+ rating with the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU  (BBB), 5 Star Ratings with CarGurus, Cars.com, 100% positive eBay feedback, and a customer satisfaction level 2nd to none! Thank you for your business, and thank you for looking at www.brooksmotorco.com

I am a local girl, born and raised in Red Bud Illinois.  After attending Southern Illinois University in Carbondale I went in search of what I wanted to be when I grew up.  Over the years of working in banking, management, retail, and customer service I found that I appreciate both the challenges and rewards of working in operations and customer service.  In April of 2016 I started my position here at Brooks Motor Company.   I have 2 awesome kids, and couldn't be prouder of them and where I am raising them!

I am the Finance Specialist/Office Manager at Brooks Motor Company and whether its assisting with finance or deciding if an extended warranty or Gap insurance would be beneficial, my goal is to ensure our customers are informed, confident and comfortable during and after their purchase.  

On paper, I would tell you that I oversee the books, ensure our customers are taken care of and manage the daily tasks that comes with working in a three person office.  In person, I would tell you that I'm proud to be one third of what makes Brooks Motor Company an outstanding business to work for and with. ("she is the glue that holds our company together" Bobby Brooks)
