    After a little hiatus I am back at Freedom and excited for what the future has to offer! In total I have worked for Freedom Nissan for 9 wonderful years. When I am not at work I enjoy playing, watching and basically anything that has to do with poker. In addition I enjoy spending time with my Chihuahua and cooking with my friends.

    When I am here at Freedom I enjoy working with customers to help them find the best deal I can. I also enjoy the family atmosphere that we have created.

    My first car was a Toyota Corolla.

    I started in the automobile business 30 years ago, as a rookie sales person, and in 1995 my wife and I decided to move from Boston to Vermont. Since then I have become co-owner at Freedom Nissan where I pride myself on making both customers, and my staff, happy.  When I'm not at the dealership, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren.

    My first car was a 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

  • Kyle Nichols
    Business Manager
    (802) 846-0228

    I am originally from my mom's belly but have moved out and currently live right here at Freedom Nissan! In the winter, I love clearing the snow off the cars with my fellow employees, or as I like to call them friends. I have been here for about four cycles around the sun and couldn't imagine any where I'd rather work.


    When I am not here (which is a rarity) I enjoy snowboarding and dancing to EDM until the sun comes up. I have always loved to dance, and grew up performing both tap and interpretive.


    My first car was a Chrysler 300.

    (802)846-7400

        I am a born and raised Vermonter. Originally from Grand Isle but have resided in Colchester for most of my life. I entered the car business at the age of 20 with Freedom Nissan. Now going on my 22nd full year at the age of 22!

        Fun Fact!! My father worked here for 10+ years back in the 1990s and early 2000s. So selling cars is in my blood! I have been driving Nissan prior to my employment with Freedom.
        I love anything that involves the outdoors! Sports are a huge passion of mine as well. Before selling cars, I worked in the construction field doing concrete ever since I was 15. This is also where I first began my sales career.

        My first car was a 1997 Ford Taurus.
