Outside of work I am living the Asheville dream, hiking with my wife and Fox Red Labrador, enjoying the local breweries this area has to offer and still keeping up with football (soccer) at the local bars. Come and see me so we can find the perfect vehicle for you!

    Hi, my name is Max Bradley and I’ve been with Hunter Subaru over 3 years, a little under a year as a technician and the remainder of the time as a service advisor. I’m originally from Colombia, South Carolina and decided to make the move up the mountain. My time here has been awesome thus far, from jumping off waterfalls to newer hobbies such as jiu jitsu, having said that I’ll never turn down a good video game session from my friends back in sc.  When I’m not doing those things you’ll probably see me trying to get someone to laugh usually when i shouldn’t.
