I’m Orlando and I’m originally from California. I came to Arizona 30yrs ago for two days and it was SO HOT, I told myself never again. But, about ten years ago I did move here and make my start in the auto industry. I live with a home full of women from 1yr old to 55yrs. My mission in life is helping people and finding their wants and needs. The thing I’ve always wanted to do most is become a missionary in some foreign land.

I have been in the business for a little over a year and 9 months now.  I was born and Raised in Durango Colorado and my first job in the car industry, was in the service department of a dealer in Houston Texas.  I love talking to people and showing clients all the features on vehicles, which is why I switched to the sales side. I worked my way to Arizona to be closer to home.  I couldn’t have found a better place to work than Brent Burge’s Riverview Toyota. I have a passion for cars and being able to pass that to others is part of the reason I chose to be a part of the #1 customer satisfaction Toyota Dealer in Arizona.  Outside of work I am always with my family, also playing all types of sports, or  off-roading.

Please don’t hesitate to call; I’d love the opportunity to take care of you the Berge way.
