Chip & Mindee – Owner

Chip & Mindee – Owner

Chip has been drawing cars since the age of 8. He started in the car business in 1985 by leasing new automobiles to people with Multilease of Ohio. A career in information technologies contracted to both Ford and General Motors kept the automotive bug alive, joining Auto Assets in 1996 as a service advisor. An interest in Club, Historic and Vintage racing quickly developed Auto Assets into a large operation of “arrive and drive” automobile racing events. In 2001 Chip and Steve Southard drove to an impressive 23rd overall in the Sebring 12 Hours. Chip still competes in a 2000 Porsche GT3R and Lola 97/90 Sports Racer. When not working Chip spends time with his wife Mindee and their daughter Lilly.
Mindee owns Garage Massage with a studio located on the second floor of Auto Assets. Mindee is interested in “fixing” people that are broken in some way or another. If your massage therapist is letting you down or you would like to take care of yourself while Auto Assets takes care of your automobile, consider booking time with Mindee. Garage Massage – a different kind of “bodywork”

MJ - Detailer

MJ – Technician

Hello, there! My name is MJ, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share a bit about myself with you. With eight years of experience as a detailer, I’ve honed my skills and developed a keen eye for perfection. Recently, I made the transition to the role of a mechanic, leveraging my expertise and passion for automobiles to delve deeper into the inner workings of these remarkable machines.
While my professional journey has taken me from detailing to mechanics, there’s more to me than just my work. In my spare time, I have a few hobbies that bring me immense joy. One of my favorite pastimes is building Legos with my daughter. It’s a creative and engaging activity that allows us to bond and let our imaginations run wild. We also love attending Blue Jackets and Buckeyes games; giving me the opportunity to teach her about the sports and teams I love. Additionally, I’m an avid supporter of my daughter’s softball journey; I make it a point to attend her games, cheering her on from the sidelines and providing guidance to help her improve her skills. Seeing her grow and develop both on and off the field brings me great pride and happiness. Nothing brings me more joy than spending quality time with my daughter and parents, creating cherished memories together. They are my pillars of support and my biggest source of inspiration.
I believe that the key to success lies in the intersection of passion, dedication, and continuous learning. I am committed to delivering exceptional results in every aspect of my work, whether it’s meticulously detailing a vehicle or diagnosing and repairing complex mechanical issues. With a focus on professionalism, attention to detail, and a genuine love for what I do, I strive to exceed expectations and provide an unparalleled experience for our clients.
