  • Ashlee Aguirre
    Sales & Leasing Specialist
    (503) 525-6230


    With a love for all things food and wine, it is no wonder that Ashlee finally landed in Portland. She has previously resided all over the country from Maui to Chicago, Illinois, and finally landing here at Mercedes-Benz of Portland. Though her experience in the automotive industry is just shy of two years she has always worked in customer service, whether it be in the hospitality industry or sales, she is always up for the challenge of learning new things. In her spare time she runs a food blog, tries new up and coming restaurants, is reading some form of book, or cheering on her favorite sports teams(Go Cubs!), sitting still is not something she is good at. Her love of food and addiction to yummy snacks makes her desk the perfect one to stop by, she always has something yummy hiding.

  • Lindsey Self
    Sales & Leasing Specialist
    (503) 525-6241


    Being a small town girl from Newberg, OR, I Recently moved to Portland area last year! I've been around the auto industry my whole life. My father being the biggest inspiration I have, his hard work of owning an auto repair business gave me the love and passion for automobiles. At the age of 14, we restored a 1986 Mercedes-Benz SL560 which became my very first car.

    Don't let these nails fool you, being raised in the country, I love taking the time to be outdoors any chance I can. Whether it's riding dirt bikes in the dunes, relaxing over candlelight dinners in Europe with a glass of red wine, snowboarding on Mt. Hood, or having fun in the sun snorkeling in the Costa Rica. I purchased one of the first CLA's in Oregon and forever was hooked into the Mercedes Benz family. I've always worked in customer service, most recently as a bartender. Having that outgoing interaction in meeting new personalities, I love sharing the same enthusiasm for Mercedes-Benz.
