I came to this country from Lebanon on October 13, 1969 at 2:30pm, that’s when the plane landed. My older brother was here. He helped me; he’s always helped me and my brothers and sisters. I went to Northeastern University. We purchased our Route 9 location together before I took over in 1978. My son Omar runs the business with me now. My brother is still my best friend. We own homes next to each other in West Roxbury. My wife, Laurde’s is the youngest sister of my brother’s wife. Our two families children are more like brothers and sisters than cousins.
We’ve grown over the years to 2 service stations and a used car business. The Brookline community has blessed my life over the years. Many of our early customers have become lifelong friends, as has their children and in some cases their children’s children. Our staff has been with us many years and has become part of our family. I was raised to be a citizen of my greater community. Helping those less fortunate than myself through my role with organizations like the Brookline Rotary, Brookline Education Foundation, and Artsbridge; has become a meaningful part of my life.
Over the years we’ve kept pace with the ever-changing technology, always keeping our knowledge and our equipment up to date. But one thing I’ve learned over the years is the technology may change but the people don’t. It’s all about trust and caring and being consistent over the years. We do our best for our customers because their cars carry their most precious possessions, their family.
We are so thankful to the people of Brookline and neighboring communities for letting us serve them for the past 36 years. We plan to be here for a long time to come. We hope you will come and see us.
