Under new ownership, a longtime Rancho Santa Fe dealership is continuing the tradition of being the best place in the neighborhood to buy, sell and consign luxury and highline cars.

New owner Adam Holeman purchased Rancho Santa Fe Autos (formerly Rancho Santa Fe Motors) in January 2015. The store has been located in Del Rayo Plaza for more than 15 years, and it’s the only licensed dealer in Rancho Santa Fe.

The store now carries more than 20 cars and is looking to expand its inventory in the near future. Holeman said they are actively looking for a local warehouse or indoor storage facility to store cars offsite.

While they specialize in luxury and exotic cars, they do carry quite a few cars under $20,000.

“We are one of the largest consignment stores in San Diego County. Rancho Santa Fe residents have been allowing us to retail their cars for years. Most of our clients have multiple cars, so most of our cars are lightly driven and well maintained,” Holeman said.

“We usually have several exotic or extremely rare cars due to our relationship with Rancho Santa Fe residents who allow us to sell their one-of-a-kind cars for them.”

RSF Autos also prides themselves on listening to the needs of their customers and making the car-buying or leasing experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.

While Holeman said the showroom is full of special cars, they do have some unique wheels, such as a 2015 Bentley with 500 miles on it and a 1974 Lotus Europa.

They are selling Ferraris, Bentleys, Mercedes, Aston Martins, Porsches and Land Rovers.

Holeman said what he enjoys most about working in Rancho Santa Fe is the people.

“Everybody I’ve met has been more than welcoming,” he said. “And they have great taste in cars!”

Rancho Santa Fe Autos is at 16077 San Dieguito Road. The showroom is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, and by appointment only on Sundays. For information, call 858-759-7723.
