Home » Elite Dealers Service


25 Years of Professional Service : Elite Sales & Marketing was first started as Coast Automotive Group in 1986 by Jeff Franco and Ray Navarro in San Fernando Valley, California.

Experience that Counts: Represented over 150 dealers across California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Moving the Industry Forward: Mr. Franco served three terms as the President of the Arizona Collision Craftsman Association, and eight consecutive years as Board of Directors Member for the California Auto Body Association, Palm Springs, CA Chapter; and continues to be heavily involved in the promotion of original parts in the collision/repair industry to major insurance providers.

New Partnership for the Future: The untimely death of Mr. Navarro left Mr. Franco with a void to be filled. In 2010 the befriending of a young and hungry marketing and business professional was the beginning of a bright, aggressive future for the re-branded Elite Sales & Marketing Group.

Expertise Where it Counts: Elite professionals have a diverse background to maximize the sales and marketing potential of their clients
