Thanks so much for sharing your experience with raising your credit score. I'm even more impressed that the finance person was giving you tips. I've never heard of that before but great that he was willing to give you specific advice that helped. It would be great if all car finance professionals did the same thing.
I'd love to hear about about your story and the impact of all of the changes you made? What was your credit score originally when you bought your car? And how much were you able to raise it after following each of the steps? Congrats on being so diligent with improving your credit score and great to see that there's been some additional benefits, like with future employers, that have been an added plus with raising your credit score.
