Bill has truly grown up with his customers, from generation to generation. In turn, many longtime customers know the Probsts’ two girls, and have watched them grow up as well.

Today, Bill has 43 years of auto repair experience—mostly hands-on in the shop—and he also attended Denver Automotive & Diesel College at the beginning of his career. As business owners for 15 years and counting, he and Chris pride themselves on quality auto repairs and great customer service, delivered with honesty and compassion.

    I moved to Colorado from Illinois fresh out of high school as teenager. I came to Colorado to further my skills as a mechanic and attended Denver Automotive and Diesel College back in the day. I immediately fell in love with the Colorado mountains and have been here ever since. Man, how time flies! I enjoy reading (Chris says I have WAY too many books, but can you ever really have too many books?!?!), football and baseball (I might even be passionate about it!), the Colorado Rockies and the Denver Broncos (despite my love for the Broncos we somehow ended up with a daughter who is a Steelers fan), the outdoors, riding my Yamaha VStar 1100.

    I absolutely love being a dad to our 2 daughters Kirsten and Jordyn. Many of you have seen them grow from infants and may know them from the frequent appearances they have made while on school breaks.

    Many of our customers know me from when I worked for the previous owner for 25 years and have been with us that long. When the previous owner retired my options were to take over the business or go find another job. With over 40 years of experience being a mechanic is really the only thing I’ve ever known. Many of our customers have seen me grow into the man I am today and have become family. It is that family that keeps me going and I am forever grateful for the kindness and love they have given me.

    Originally, I’m a Jersey girl. everyone always says at times they can still see the Jersey spunk come shining through! I’m unique! What can I say?!?! I have been in Colorado for about 26 years now and have come to call it home. While I do miss the ocean, the mountains amaze me. I enjoy sketching the Colorado scenery, painting the sky, and writing under the phenomenal star filled sky that I find so inspiring. Riding my Yamaha Vstar 1100, Swimming, and skiing are some of my favorite things to do! 

    My family (including my 4 legged kids and finned friends) are the light of my life. Many of you have met our awesome daughters Kirsten and Jordyn in the shop (where they have helped out on breaks), and some have watched them grow from infants into the beautiful young women they have become. 

    If you would have asked me 20 years ago if I ever thought I would be the partner in an automotive repair shop I would have laughed and said no way. My dad was a big rig mechanic growing up and the grease was just well… YUCK! After meeting Bill 23 years ago, we decided Bill’s Crestmoor Automotive needed to happen for 3 reasons: the customers Bill had come to know and love, the trade he had come to enjoy, and my passion to bring honesty and quality to the industry. I absolutely adore each and every one of our customers and consider them a part of my extended family.

    I moved to Colorado in October 2020 after having spent 30 years in Texas. Still adjusting to my new surroundings, but Colorado is growing on me fast. I grew up in South Jersey and joined the United States Army in 1988, serving as a Combat Engineer. I did three tours in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait during the initial Desert Shield / Desert Storm battles. In 1994, I discharged from the Army and began my next chapter with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. In 2020, after 26 years of service with TDCJ, I retired as a Warden.

    Although I am new to Colorado and Bill’s Crestmoor Automotive, I have a leg up because Chris and Bill are my sister and brother-in-law. I have watched Bill and Chris take Bill’s Crestmoor Automotive to heights unthought of when the doors first opened. Chris’s passion for running an operation that treats it’s customers and employee’s like family is nothing short of remarkable and Bill’s ability to diagnose and repair vehicles astounds me.
