Meet The Owners, Lee and Julie

Lee and Julie Hardegree are fully embedded in the North Shore community. Lee grew up in Skokie and Julie in Wilmette, and they raised their children in Northbrook and live there today. With over three decades of automotive experience, Lee is considered to be a leading auto technician. Both Lee and Julie strive to make a positive impact on their local community by regularly hosting local initiatives and family events to give back to the community that has supported them for so long. 

And, it just so happens that the shop is located in Morton Grove right across the street from the school where Lee learned to drive.
