Elva Padilla
Internet Sales & Leasing Director
(951) 354-4122

My relationship with the Automotive Industry started in 2006 and I am still excited to represent the Lexus brand and Lexus of Riverside. We do more than sell vehicles. I get to be the liaison to the community of organizations that help build this great city. We are a member of the Military Council which supports March Air Reserve and Naval Surface Warfare Center. We partner with the Universities in Riverside and are advocates for the first S.T.E.M. High School. I also enjoy the Internet Department in keeping us competitive in this market and continue to represent Lexus hospitality named Omotenashi, "Anticipate our guests needs, Pay Attention to Detail and show Gratitude."

Previous to joining this team my background was in telecommunication for 10 years which has served me well. It did not take long for me to get promoted within my first year into the Internet Department. I am Lexus Master Certified and was top sales in 2018 and 2019 and received the most Customer Satisfaction Index surveys. My spare time is devoted to my lovely wife, 4 children and 2 black labs. I have found my true passion in life, here at Lexus of Riverside in selling the world's greatest automobiles, delivering superior service and helping all my guests to "Experience Amazing". Call, text or email me with any questions or schedule a visit. I am here to help!

Victor Rincon
Internet Sales & Leasing Manager
(951) 354-4164

My professional career started at a large bakery that produced goods for large national retailers at the age of 18, by 19 I was their Warehouse Manager. Working hard and moving up was a valuable lesson and soon after I transitioned to Costco Wholesale. My love for the Lexus brand started growing as I would see them displayed at our warehouse. I purchased my first 2013 IS 250 and I never looked back. This paved the way for me to be at a job that I am truly passionate about. With the tools Costco gave me and knowledge Lexus instilled, I help people get their dream car and am able to provide the greatest customer experience designed around your needs. At Lexus of Riverside my ultimate goal is to provide you with an experience as memorable as mine was when I purchased my first car, even if it's your 5th purchase. Please feel free to call and ask for Victor.

I have been in retail sales for over 20 years. Most of my working career was done at Nordstrom where I was twice voted as a "Customer Service All-Star." I have used the same customer service approach in my car selling career. I recently came from CarMax for 4 years. I chose Lexus because it is a superior product to other brands. In my time off I enjoy lifting weights. My passion is writing weekly encouraging messages that I send out via email going over bible scripture. I am fortunate to have been happily married for 18 years. I have 3 children from 2 to 22. I look forward to meeting you.
