We are as different (as are our many efforts and projects) as we are similar in our love for each other, our family, friends, clients and community.
Ypsilanti has been our home base since 1990 and our town continues to inspire us! We fell in love with it when we discovered our beautiful home and our Normal Park neighborhood. It has been the center of our universe for these many years and we have been blessed to share it and all our wonderful creations that have been produced within these amazing four walls.
As you wander through our site, you will begin to wonder how we have the time to have so many pursuits in life– a good question! –especially since our first grandchild has arrived. (See right!)
Those that know us have the answer to that puzzle, for others that are discovering the Basherts for the first time, please know that our thirst for knowledge is endless, and while we might not know all the answers we can guarantee our conversations will be interesting, lively and full of laughter as we swap stories.

I had some custom things installed on my truck and the guys in the shop did an excellent job with the installs and they charge a fair price. I found Dunning after I had a terrible experience at Victory Toyota in Canton. I came across a sales AD for an FJ Cruiser and decided to check it out and I’m so glad I did. That’s when I met Beth…

Sherri suggested a dealership that she saw advertised on her way to work. We stopped for a “quick view” and were pleasantly surprised. The mood was 180 degrees from our former experiences. Upon arrival at your dealership on Jackson Road in AnnArbor, Michigan, the receptionist was pleasant and courteous. She invited us to have a look around and she would have a sales associate answer any questions that we might have. Ms. Beth Bashert was the sales person that answered our questions.
