Valerie Martel

Top Notch Repairs LLC 1060 3rd Street


Age: 41

Years in business: 15 years

Background: “I run the business with my husband, Marcel. We are in our third year of business in Pahrump. My husband and I moved out from Montreal. We came to Nevada, visiting Las Vegas and liked it out here. We came out here because of the weather. My husband has always had an interest in muscle cars since he was little. We collect them and my favorite is our 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s like the car in Fast and Furious.”

First job: “My first job was working at a gas station as a cashier.”

Personal: “My first love is driving the muscle cars we have. I just have a passion for cars.”

Business Climate: “There are six or seven body shops in Pahrump and it is highly competitive in our field. We would like to think we are the best body shop out here. We are so busy here during the week that we always have at least 35 to 40 cars out here.”
