“DreamFleet was established in 2006 to introduce a unique buyer experience focusing on quality, transparency and convenience – a passion of mine,” Helstab said. “We launched the business at an event in the historic Distillery District in Toronto. We first operated as more of a virtual dealership, developing a specialty in remote selling with most of our clients in the Greater Toronto Area.

“As our business grew, we enhanced our bricks and mortar experience to serve our growing local clientele. We broke ground on the construction of our new home at 2878 Carp Rd. during the summer of 2017 and celebrated our grand opening on June 23, 2018. Our customer experience and facility continue to get rave reviews.”

Helstab grew up in the automobile industry. His father opened a VW franchise in 1952 in Niagara which the family operated for 36 years. Helstab pursued a career in design and technology innovation but always had a passion for automobiles.

Helstab says one of his favourite holiday traditions was passed on from his parents to him.

“As a child, you would put your shoes by the fireplace on Dec 5 evening,” Helstab said. “St Nicholas filled them with nuts, marzipan and chocolates. We carried it on with our own children. Perhaps they’ll do the same.”

Helstab says one of the things he loves about the holidays in Carp is how the village looks the part.

“It’s a peaceful and friendly environment with clean white snow covering the trees and landscape,” Helstab said.
