Meet Virginia

Meet Virginia. No, not the popular 90’s Train song. Virginia Wirtz of Riata Ford. She’s been working with us for six years now and we couldn’t be happier to have her on our team. Luckily, she really likes working with us too! Though Virginia is having her consecutive six year work anniversary, if you count the two year break she took in between, she’s actually worked with us for nearly thirteen years. She tells us she loves her job as a billing clerk and that loving what she does “Makes the day go by faster.I learn something new every day.” She also tells us she enjoys the people she works with and that there’s “never a dull moment” at Riata Ford. (Something we all love about working here!) When Miss Virginia isn’t at work, she enjoys spending time with her grandkids, boy/girl eight-year old twins and a twelve year old girl. “They’re my life” she gushes. She has one child of her own, telling us that after growing up with nine brothers and sisters, she wanted a smaller …

Customer Highlight: Meet JoAnn

    Meet JoAnn Wolf– Proud owner of this snazzy buy, recently purchased at Riata Ford in Manor, Texas. This isn’t her first purchase from Riata, but rather her third in TEN years. She’s a longtime fan of our dealership, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have her as a loyal customer. But this dedicated buyer loves more than just the Fords she buys from us. She boasts that she has not only four grandkids (ranging in ages from 15-34) but also four great grandkids, and we can tell that they keep her busy in the very best way possible. And as if she hasn’t got her hands full enough, JoAnn bought this spacious vehicle from us for a very special reason. A dog lover and owner of three border terriers, JoAnn proudly tells us that that she will be taking her pups to and from dog shows in her new Ford. We at Leif Johnson are so grateful to have so many unique and fun customers with so many interesting stories and from so many different …

Learn all about Bryan Beltran (And watch him perform at Riata Ford!)

  Bryan Beltran of the Manor Marching Band has an inspiring story. For the first ten years of his life, Bryan knew no English. He tells us that learning was a challenge for him, but one that he overcame by being around his English-speaking classmates at school. He now speaks both English and Spanish fluently. But what Bryan really likes to talk about–in either language–is his passion for music. “I love music, I love hearing it, and playing it. Ever since my dad gave me a guitar in middle school, I have enjoyed exploring music. I taught myself how to play that guitar. I enjoy that you can create your own type of music and emotional connection.” Bryan tells us, and his excitement is palpable. Bryan’s father was his inspiration for his love of music, and even has a band that both Bryan and his brother take part in. He loves watching his dad perform, and says he can just see all of his struggles melting away as he plays his instruments. “Growing up in Mexico, my dad was the …
