When Gaston Rossato was 9 years old, he bought and sold his first car, and made a profit. Having a father who worked in the automotive industry meant that he had always been exposed to cars, but the skill of making a profitable sale at such a young age is truly a gift. It is this gift, and the integration of modern platforms that have allowed The Barn Miami to grow exponentially since its conception.
For the last fifteen years Rossato has been purchasing and selling cars on a local and a global scale.
Till 2008, Gaston worked as a full-time dealer for his father’s car business - after graduating from college he worked at an insurance company and dealt cars out of his one-car garage as a side hustle. This side hustle turned into a full-time work opportunity for Rossato when it began expanding from his one-car garage to his friends and family’s garages - until he finally secured a space and founded The Barn Miami. For the last fifteen years Rossato has been purchasing and selling cars on a local and a global scale.
Currently, The Barn Miami’s inventory adds up between two to three million dollars and boasts antique finds like 1948 Mercury Eight, as well as high-end modern cars like a 2017 Ferrari 488 - offered at a whopping two hundred and twenty thousand dollars. When asked about his entrepreneurship journey, Rossato explained that when he was operating out of his garage, he would search for cars online, buy them, and then sell them with better marketing.
This method is what paved The Barn Miami’s road to success, since it set it apart from the rest of the dealerships due to its unconventional and modern take on the market. In the future he plans on expanding the space and providing a wider array of services, making it a one-stop-shop for all sorts of specialty car needs.
