    An affinity for expensive autos has come in handy for Greenfield, who often is called upon to do car shopping. But it can backfire with unrealistic clients. "I told a client he shouldn't buy a Tesla," he says. "I wanted him to buy a Prius or a Chevy Volt, but he said he couldn't deal with driving a Chevy. See what we have to put up with?"
