A Tale of two Families.
Everette Sharpe was born in North Carolina where he met Sandy. They married and moved to Florida. Everette was an auto body apprentice, then advanced to an auto body technician. He worked his way up to being the Service Director at Boniface Chrysler Dodge (in charge of service, parts, auto body shop). Once he reached that plateau he kept striving- he decided he and Sandy would open their own shop. In 1983 they founded Quality Collision Repair. Because of Everette and Sandy’s hard work and professional attitude, Quality Collision Repair is still a very successful body shop. Quality Collision Repair founded The Brevard Auto Body Association, dedicated to educate and unify Brevard auto body professionals. The Sharpe’s won the Sam Walton, “Business Leaders” award. Quality Collision Repair won the “Small Business Award”, presented by the Cocoa Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. Quality Collision Repair restored The Brevard Zoo Train engine and co-ordinated the restoration of the train cars through the Brevard Auto Body Association.
