Is a catch phrase you can hear Jeff repeat around the shop on any given day.

Greg Pheasant

Greg Pheasant

Greg is the son of the owners of A Master Mechanic.  Following in his father’s footsteps, mechanically speaking, he had a wrench in his hand at a very young age.  Around age four, he was working on his bicycles and a couple years later, helping dad in the home garage.  Quickly picking up on the art of auto repair, he has helped start the family business, leaving briefly to work for a local dealership.  Greg has held his emissions testing license since the age of 17, has become ASE certified, and when at the dealer he became dealer certified with specialist training on rotary engines.  Recently, Greg and his wife have two children and only time will tell if Greg’s son follows in the family automotive repair tradition.

He is a certified Toyota, Lexus, Subaru, and ASE technician as well as an ASE Certified Service Consultant.

When he’s not working on one of his cars, Marty loves being outside with his family, mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, snowshoeing, well… you get the idea. Marty feels like he has found his home in Reno and at A Master Mechanic and no longer has plans to move back to Utah.
