Terry Davison Auto Imports on RM 2222 near H-E-B recently sold to Apple Sales & Leasing. Apple owner Scott Crossett is excited to do business in the Four Points area, though it’s not his first time to own a dealership at that location.
Crossett and Davison have a long shared history in the auto business. Davison bought his RM 2222 location in 1995, then sold it, then Crossett bought it from that owner in 2000. Crossett then sold it back to Davison in 2002, where it became Terry Davison Auto Imports.
In addition, Crossett owned Apple Sport Imports on RM 620 N, a location he first purchased from Davison in 1998. There he sold the used cars from his business Apple Leasing, a lease facilitator.
“We were leasing lots of cars. But as the leases started maturing… I’ve got these really, really nice used cars. So I thought, why don’t I get a used car lot,” said Crossett. “That was my first business deal with Terry.”
One of Crossett’s employee partners at the time wanted the opportunity for ownership, and in December 2007 successfully purchased the Apple Sport Imports dealership from Crossett.
Now for his newest venture, the Four Points Apple Sales & Leasing lot, Crossett says there will be some positive changes. Customers will be able to purchase or lease used inventory.
