Eric & Ricky launched CarWise in the summer of 2018. Having gone through the traditional process of buying a car at a dealership and having experience in car sales, the pair became frustrated with the stress and hurdles they were faced with; they quickly realized they were not alone in their experience. They launched CarWise with the mission of providing its customers with a better car shopping experience while also educating them to make informed financial decisions. Since then, CarWise has rapidly grown to help over 450 clients all across California.

Prior to launching CarWise, Eric worked in finance and project management at Northrop Grumman. He holds a bachelor's degree in Political Economy from UC Berkeley. Ricky worked as a sales consultant for Kia Motors where he learned the ins and out of the car business.
