Woody Smith

Chris Sanders
General Manager

I have been in the car business since I was a kid. I would sit on a stool in awe and watch my dad at the auction buy and sell cars. When I got a chance at 13 years old to wash cars, I jumped at it. For the next couple of years I took any job they would give me to work at the dealership, wash kid, detail apprentice, sales assistant and finally one day I was able to become a full-fledged salesperson. Since then, I spent almost 3 decades taking care of customers with all of their automotive needs. I have a wonderful supporting wife, a son that is in the Military and Police Officer that I am so proud of, my wife and I have two amazing grandsons and precious granddaughter that we can't spend enough time with. Please let me know if I can be of service in any way.  

William Locke
Sales/Finance Professional

William is a guy you will want to meet when you are buying your car. He is professional and will do everything in his power to make sure you get in the right car. He has a farm and enjoys his horses. He likes spending time with his family and watching sports.

Austin Wedel
Sales Professional

I grew up in the small town of Dayton Idaho where I learned the meaning of hometown values and hard work. I have been here in Rexburg since 2014 and have been here at Woody Smith Ford serving the locals in all their vehicle needs since February of 2016. I always look forward to the opportunity to meet new people and continually see the smiles on their faces as we become more than just employees and customers but friends that I enjoy running into around town. I have a beautiful wife and two little sons that keep me more than busy in my time away from work. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and making memories that we will continue to talk about and laugh about for the years to come. 

Mike Socrates
Sales Professional

My name is Mike Socrates. I am 30 years young and I have a beautiful wife and two kids. I've been assisting Clients in the Southeastern Idaho Region since 2015; and all I can say is it has been a blast.  My favorite part about the work that I do is seeing the joy on people's faces when I am able to get them into a vehicle they never thought would be possible. I build dreams and memories with what I do. And I am proud to work here at Woody Smith Hyundai where I can continue someone else's legacy as well as continuing to build mine.

She knows how cars work and can pass her knowledge on to customers so that they fully understand why they need certain repairs done. She will almost always be wearing a hat because she loves them!
