VICTORIA, Texas -

Victory Auto Smart in Victoria appears like any other place to buy a car, but when customers come into the dealership, they quickly learn it is more than a regular dealer.

Victory Auto Smart salesperson Laurynn Nichols says customers are often surprised to find out the dealership is entirely run by women.

"it's usually quite a surprise," says Victory Auto Smart sales manager Jessika Peninkofer.

The dealership shuts down the longstanding stereotype that selling cars is a job for men.

"I like to prove them wrong" says Nichols. "And show them it's not just a bunch of women here trying to sell cars and not know anything."

The female team behind the dealership believes they have a softer approach to everything they do. They also say their customers can sense a feminine touch.

"These women are pretty laid back and they do a good job helping you find a car that you like," says Johnnie Patterson, a Victory Auto Smart customer.

The woman behind The Victory Auto Smart say they are ready to break the stereotypes that most people have about woman and cars.
