One week ago today: If you are looking for a quality used car for a fair price and no pressure sales person go visit Stan Hall at Emerald Coast Motor Cars in Destin. He is honest, upfront, and a true Southern gentleman. I believe it was no accident that he sold me my “Dream Car ” and I am sure we will be friends for many years to come!??

Randall Graham - 1998 Porsche Boxster

We had Stan market and sell our Porsche. Within a week, and with no hassle, the car was sold and all the “details “ taken care of by Stan. My kind of service. Whether you are buying or selling, ECMC is THE place to go.

Mike - 2007 Chevrolet Colorado

We bought a sound vehicle at a reasonable price. It was a good experience. If you are in the market for a good used vehicle, I would not hesitate to check the inventory and see if you can find what you need.

Lora Phillips - 2017 Ford Mustang GT

We put our car on consignment. Stan made this a great experience. He kept us in the loop the whole time. Luckily, it didn’t take long for our car to sell even with it being the Holiday!!! We have bought many cars over the years and honest sales men are far and few between but Stan is one of those rare ones. He is fair, honest and just overall a great person to have in your corner when buying or selling a car. We are so glad we were recommended Stan at Emerald Coast Motor Cars to do business with. We could not have asked for a better experience. Sincerely, thank you so much Stan and Emerald Coast Motor Cars of Destin.

David Waterson - 2013 Lexus CT200h

Hands down, one of the cleanest and most enjoyable car selling experiences I have ever had. We needed to sell a car for someone and after contacting Stan, we received a very fare offer (we did online research). He immediately set a meeting, looked at the car, and bought it from us at the price that was offered.

Stan is a fair man who sticks to his word. One of the last “handshake” salesmen. We enjoyed working with him so much, we sold a golf cart to him the next day!

Great guy – honest, nice, polite, and he even loves dogs. Would call him again in a heartbeat.

Joseph Cloutier - 1996 Nissan 300ZX

What a wonderful experience. We found our dream car and Stan even took care of some issues after we left. He is amazing. A true man of his word. Kind and considerate. He was like a long lost friend from the day we met. We recommend everyone to buy from him!

Preston Hoffman - 2007 Chevrolet C2500HD

Great experience here with Mr. Stan! Great truck we got! And a car! Very nice place and great atmosphere! Thanks for the service????

Teresa Fabian - 2003 Chrysler Sebrine

Stan went out of his way to work with my busy schedule and couldn’t have been  nicer and more professional. He made the whole process quick and easy. My convertible sold in the winter as quickly as if it were the middle of a Destin summer! We will definitely work with Stan again! I give him a 5 star rating!

Hope - 2011 Hyundai Sonata

My experience at EC Motors was so pleasant! I got a 2011 Hyundai Sonata for a great deal. Feels so good buying a car from a trustworthy, genuine, reliable dealer! Awesome experience ??

Susan and Floyd Longfellow - 2003 Chrysler Sebring

What a pleasure it was to deal with Stan and find a beautiful ride at good price. He is top notch. No high pressure sales. He went out of his way to accommodate us on his day off. I would highly recommend this business.

Jamie McIntosh - 2014 Ford F-150

Absolute pleasure working with Stan on another vehicle purchased from Emerald Coast Motor Cars Destin! I would (and do) recommend to others!

Elizabeth - 2003 Mercedes-Benz M320

The vehicle my father purchased was accurately represented, clean, recently serviced, and ready to drive away. Stan provided a Carfax report and recent service records. An experienced car dealer, Stan easily took care of all necessary paper work & registration; so within an hour of test driving, my father was driving away in his “new” 2003 Mercedes M320. In the days following the purchase, Stan willingly continued to provide support and answer questions as my father became familiar with his new vehicle.

Steve Crain - 2007 Chevrolet C2500HD

We were looking for a work truck and found exactly what we needed at a good price and in very good condition. Really enjoyed meeting and doing business with Stan. I would recommend all my friends to him.

Harry P Pastuszek Jr. -      

Stan has been a God send.
I used Autotrader for a month with no results in trying to sell my car.
Stan had a buyer for my car within a week

Ken & Penny Parmer -      

Stan was able to sell our SUV fast and for a great price. Very professional and thorough taking care of all the details for us.

Stan is a straight shooter.

He finds nice cars and sells at a good price.

The 1997 Lexus 400 is a killer car and a great find / price.

Highly recommended.

Francine Tustin -   Ford F-150

Never before have I dealt with this kind of courtesy and customer service. Will be contacting Stan when we start looking for next vehicle. 5 star!!

Emerald Coast Motor Cars is a class act. I have purchased many cars in my life but Stan Hall is in a class all his own. You will be treated fairly and with great respect.

Joe Llewellyn Realtor-GRI - 2014 Audi  

Hey folks, met Stan Hall thru FB about 3 years ago! Saw his sign when showing property as I am with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate! 850-621-7100! So been following him all this time looking for that cream puff. Saw this Audi SQ7 Prestige BLK/BLK with ventilated seats front and rear on Monday! Checked all my boxes! Came in shook hands and picked car up today! Best experience ever! 5 stars! Check here first before you buy! If he doesn’t have it he can find it! Joe.

David Holden - 2016 Land Rover Range Rover

Unbelievable service! Stan is the man to buy from!!! Outstanding follow through!! Thanks Stan love my Land Rover!

Paul Schmitz -   Toyota FJ Crusier

The car I was looking for was very rare, a yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser in mint condition. I saw online that Emerald Coast had one. I sent an email on Sunday morning not expecting to hear back until Monday. I got a call back on Sunday morning and I made a 5K deposit with my credit card over the phone. Stan said he would ship the car directly to me but he wanted me to wire all the money first. I was a bit skeptical about wiring 25K to someone I did not know for a car that I had never seen. I read all of the reviews and I decided to wire the 25K. The car arrived on time and exactly as represented. I will definitely do business with Stan again.

Stephanie Corso - 2017 Ford F-150

Stan took all the stress out of car buying for us! He was honest and found us exactly what we were looking for. Having patience and trusting Stan saved us thousands of dollars!! I’ve bought a lot of cars and this by far was the best experience yet!! Thanks Stan!!! We appreciate you very much!!

Gina -   Mercedes-Benz  

My fiancé Tony & I are very pleased and surprised with the one on one personal service from Stan Hall. He’s the only honest car dealer I’ve experienced. You would be foolish not to use Emerald Coast Motor Cars in Destin for your next car buying experience. Thanks again, Stan!!!

Dawn Danjean -   Land Rover Evoque

Stan is a gem…. thank you so much for everything!

Brent Chandler - 2017 Land Rover Range Rover

Wonderful service, sold the vehicle very quickly. Highly recommend you use them to buy or sell your next wheels!

Debby Wier -   Hyundai Genesis

Stan was an absolute joy to work with. He’s an old school gentleman and a man of his word. In today’s fast paced society, it was refreshing to deal with someone who views the customer as a relationship rather than a number. I would give Stan the HIGHEST possible recommendation and look forward to working with him for all my car buying and selling needs.

Peter Kotite -   Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Stan was true to his word, went above and beyond. Made the entire process of selling my car fast, simple and hassle free. Would definitely use again.

Ian DeCosta -   Dodge Caravan

Stan could not have made the whole experience any simpler or more convenient. As someone who has had more than their fair share of dealings with car dealers in the past, Stan has been a breath of fresh air. He has been nothing but honest and upfront and I plan on doing business with him and Emerald Coast Motor Cars for many years to come.

Hope Lovelace -   Nissan Armada

Stan ROCKS! I ?? My Armada!
I hugged & kissed it the minute I saw it. Stan got exactly what I wanted. Not only that, he had it immaculate & ready for me BEFORE I got to town. No waiting. Everything was perfect. I drive it with a huge smile everyday. Stan makes the whole process effortless & fun. He’s a super cool guy that goes over & beyond to make your “any car” wish come true…..
in only one stop.

Nathan Hall -   Porsche Cheyanne

Working with Stan at Emerald Coast Motor Cars Destin to help sell my car was a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. He sold my Cayenne in just a few weeks and all I had to do was drop it off at his office. Every other aspect was taken care of! One of the best experiences I’ve ever had dealing with buying or selling a car! I highly recommend his services!

Debra McMullen - 2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

What an easy way to buy a vehicle. Tell Stan what you are looking for and he will find it at the best price. He makes car buying fun!

Melissa and Don Hill -   Toyota Carolla

I am thrilled with our purchase and beyond satisfied! The whole process was simple and quick and Stan went above and beyond to clean up the car and make it as perfect as possible! I usually steer clear of “small dealerships”, but I’m so glad I took a chance on this one! Thank you so much, Stan!

Randal Haase -      

Stan is very accessible and friendly. Very straight forward and keeps his word.

Shawna - 2015 Chevrolet Corvette

Stan is the MAN!The BEST car buying, selling experience I’ve ever had! Stan takes care of everything! He sold my car in 2 weeks, found the perfect buyer, handled all the paperwork while I was out of town and the car looked brand new the day after I dropped it off. I will recommend him to everyone who’s even thinking about buying or selling…don’t do it yourself, let Stan.

Nancy Moss -      

Working with Stan Hall and Emerald Coast Motors is the best experience I have had with any car dealership. Stan found the exact car I was looking for and gave us a very fair price on our trade in. I recommend that anyone looking to purchase a vehicle contact Stan for his help and expertise. -Nancy Moss

Marsha Franklin -      

I’m from Baldwin County, AL and was contemplating driving to Destin to see a car when Stan offered to meet me in Pensacola.  That’s what we did and I came home in a good looking Lexus that day.  Bought it right there in the parking lot at Joe Patti’s.
What an easy way to buy a car!
Thanks!

Andy - 2015 AUDI Quattro

Stan was great to work with. I bought my 2016 S4 sight unseen after getting an inspection then having the car shipped, and everything was exactly as described.

Amber Wiebe - 2002 HUMMER H2

Stan did a wonderful job selling our car and doing the legwork to get it sold in less than a week! Very professional and courteous. I will definitely be a repeat customer as I appreciate his expertise and efficiency. Thank you Stan!

Brett Overton - 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Stan helped us out in a tight spot by storing and arranging for shipment of a 2001 Mercedes CLK430 Cabriolet from Destin to Chicago. He took great care of the car and followed through with all his commitments.

Thank you Stan for your help.

Lori & Stephan Karian - 2015 Dodge Challenger

We had gone to several dealerships and couldn’t find what our son was looking for. Stan listened to what we wanted and searched everywhere for us. We got an even better car than what we wanted at a better price. And Stan handles everything!  It was the BEST car buying experience we ever had!

Michele and Steve Wright -   Cadillac Escalade XL

We have bought a car and sold a car through Emerald Coast Motor Cars! Stan was awesome to work with! Excellent service! Very fun and pleasurable experiences! Highly recommend this business.

Stan Is the man in Destin to help anyone with their automobile needs. He does what he says, when he says and does so with integrity. Thanks for your help Stan.

Avery Henry -   Mercedes-Benz E-Class

My parents and I had the most amazing experience with Stan at Emerald Coast Motor Cars Destin. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the cars he is selling and the business but is greatly kind and fun to be around. Stan sold my parents a beautiful, practically brand new car for my mom’s birthday and we could not be happier. He has the best inventory on the beach, and we will definitely return for future cars!

Daniel Fox -      

Working with Stan Hall was a pleasure.  He took the time to listen and advise, and ultimately made all parts of the transaction painless.  I highly recommend Emerald Coast Motor Cars!

Sara -   MINI Cooper

Mr. hall was wonderful! Made my purchase fast and easy. Would recommend him to anyone!

Sherry and George Landis -      

Stan was very easy to do business with. We were from out of state and Stan worked out meetings and had all the facts and figures readily available. He represented his vehicle fairly and was equally fair with our trade. No pressure. No hype. Highly recommend his car acumen and his personable demeanor. George and Sherry Landis.

Aaron Fogarty -      

I normally don’t write reviews but i figured everyone should know about the great service Stan provides. My Father had passed away and we needed to sell his truck. We posted the add online and got nothing but spam and lowballers. We took the truck down to Stan for consignment and within a week he sold it and gave us a check for the amount we originally agreed upon. If you would like an honest car buying experience from someone that does what they say they will do Stan is your guy. Thanks

Shannon Cook -   Porsche Cayenne

Purchasing my Porsche from Stan Hall was the BEST car buying experience EVER! Thanks for taking such great care of me!

Regina Spitty -      

Whether you are a local, or new to the region, like us, just moved from the UK to Florida, Stan is the perfect person to find the right car for your individual needs and budgets!
He was so good, that we went back twice, “he found us two cars in one week!!”
We are very happy with our family car and a great truck!

We will definitively be back when our daughter needs her first car.

Well done done, Stan!

It was a pleasure meeting and dealing with you!

Lyle Allamon -      

Stan is wonderful to work with.  We recently bought a new car from him for our daughter (it was her first car) and Stan makes the process smooth and easy.  He is able to find reliable, nice, low milage vehicles and sell them at a fair price.  No pressure sales is also a perk AND he actually cares about what he is doing and wants you to be happy with the purchase.

I will definitely keep him in mind for any future car buying.

Isaiah -      

Couldn’t be happier with our Mini Cooper S convertible. Great car buying experience. Stan was awesome and this was the most fairly I’ve been treated ever when purchasing a vehicle.

Kay -      

Stan gave us a fair price and sold the car in 4 days. Consigning with Stan freed up my time and was a no worry process.

Logan McGee -      

By far the best experience you will have on the Emerald Coast! The one on one person touch is unparalleled and there’s no funny games here! Couldn’t recommend Emerald Coast Motor Cars enough!

Michele and Steve Wright -      

Emerald Coast Motor Cars is a great company to sell or purchase a vehicle!  We have done both.  Reasonable prices on their cars and wonderful customer service! Stan Hall makes buying and selling a car a pleasant experience with unsurpassed customer service! I highly recommend ECMC!

Gary Meredith -      

Stan made buying a car an enjoyable experience.  His transparency was most refreshing.  I was planning to spend the day in Pensacola running the used car gauntlet, however, I found a car perfect for my needs 5 miles from my home in Sandestin.

Adam -      

Was my 1st vehicle purchase, Stan made it a great experience. my family will definitely be back in the future to work with him again! Love my new Tacoma! Thanks Stan!

Joy Segno -      

Wow! all I can say is Wow.  My husband and I recently purchased a car from Stan Hall.  We have bought many cars over our married life, but never has it been easier or more satisfying.  Not only did Stan find us the perfect car at the perfect price, but he made the transition from our old car to the new one effortless.

Stan is the man when it comes to buying a car.  I heartedly recommend him to everyone who is in the market for a new car.

Thanks again, Stan.  God bless you.

Mike Frady -      

We were treated like five star Customers so I give Stan Hall five stars

Yordan Hristov -      

You will not get an idea of the “no hassle” policy Stan has until you buy a car from him! You basically just get the keys and start enjoying your new ride! He does everything for you. I’ve had harder time buying a bubble gum than a vehicle form Stan!


Bridget Carnley -      

Stan Hall, EC Motor Cars, helped me thru a bad car experience with an out of town auto dealer and personally found me an amazing replacement in the same model. I want to thank him and would recommend to anyone looking to purchase a car; Stan will make it happen. Look for him behind the new Destin ER. It will be worth your time.

Patrix -      

This was by far the best and easiest experience I have had buying a car. Stan and his team have a great selection of quality vehicles at very fair prices, and I was able to choose a car that met my exact needs. Stan helped me with everything and went above and beyond to help me get the right car as I transitioned back to the U.S. I know that my family and I will be return customers anytime we need a car!

Cassidy Lyons Pickens -      

Stan saved me so much time and worry. He found the exact car I wanted and had it delivered within the week. He was pleasant, professional and super helpful!  He made what would have been a very stressful experience actually enjoyable for me.  If I ever buy again, I’m calling him first! Thank you so much Mr. Stan!

Ed McMullen Jr -      

Thank you Stan Hall and Emerald Coast Motor Cars for allowing Miss Destin to have such a nice sleigh ride today.

Jim 'Babbitt' Cordeiro -      

Stan was great to work with…answered all my questions…assisted me greatly in getting vehicle ready for service for my company “Aloha Limo Destin” and did exactly what he said he would do to make my experience easy on me. I would advise everyone to stop by and see Stan he has a variety of vehicles in great condition at the best price…” THANKS STAN”

Tom Buck -      

Stan has been true to his word at every turn. He told us he would find us the exact vehicle we were looking for and come in at a better price than the competition. When the vehicle arrived Stan and I both thought the tires were a bit too worn so we agreed that we would split the cost of a new set of Michelins. They have already been installed. There were a few very minor dents and dings that Stan has also already taken care of. Stan is a gentleman and the kind of person you would only HOPE to do used-car business with. We rate the quality of his service and caring for our needs very highly and would confidently recommend him to any of our friends.

Dr. Barry Carpenter -      

Stan Hall was so helpful to me in selling an automobile. He takes the hassle out of selling and buying. Unbelievably simple! He does everything he can to accommodate his customers. I really appreciate his approach.

Steven Dewar -      

Wow! Awesome, Stan has sold my family 4 cars in the last 6 months. No pressure, no hassle, and can have you in/out in an hour. Stan makes the car buying experience fun.  I highly recommend you check out Emerald Coast Motor Cars for your next set of wheels.

Gary Anderson -      

Stan had the very car I was in the search for. The miracle seller as I lost all hope I could find my Porsche in Destin that I wanted.

It’s a pleasure to buy from someone like Stan, who is not a push and pull salesman but wants to see the potential buyer get a great deal.

He also connects the buyers to an Incredible car mechanic that charges a very fair labor charge.

Leta and Roland Kok -      

Stan was a pleasure to work with.  He followed through with all of his commitments in a timely manner.  We highly recommend him and we would certainly purchase another car from him.

Barry Skipp -      

Stan the high end used car dealer man was awesome. I came in in my work clothes and boots and was treated like a five star customer. No haggling back and forth to get to a great deal we made the deal and it was great. I would highly recommend Emerald Coast to everyone in the market to purchase a well kept low mileage vehicle. Did not know there was an honest car salesman until I met Stan.

Ryan Eiland -      

I have purchased 3 cars from Stan. Great customer service, He handled all the paperwork getting tags, title and made trading cars seamless and with ease.

Very professional and best car buying experience compared to typical dealer. Highly recommend.

Ben Balden -      

This is the best car buying service I have ever seen. Stan has gone out of his way to make sure that the service we receive is the best. During the time that I have worked with him, I have seen him give this same high level of service to many other of his clients. This is a man who is passionate about what he does!

David Fang -      

These guys are incredible. It’s a whole new way of buying a car that for me, makes a ton of sense. Think of them as your car buying concierge. You tell them what you are looking for and for what price, and they scour the country finding the perfect one, handle the paperwork and deliver it straight to your door. The fact that they stand in line at the DMV for me is what seals the deal. Love this company!

Ben Joyce -      

Great guy, great cars. He really takes pride in both what he sells and how he treats people. He gets you what you are looking for the right price. What more can you ask for?

Bill Brock -      

Absolutely the most honest and energetic concierge I have ever experienced! They will find you what you want and take away the anxiety of car shopping! Super company!

Kevin Dwire -      

Super helpful, found my car for the lowest price around!! What an amazing type of way to buy a car!!
