About Eric Knudtsen

My Story

Eric has lived in Coeur d’Alene his entire life and still thoroughly enjoys it! He is a co-owner of Knudtsen Chevrolet in Post Falls with his sister Eve, and they are celebrating 82 years in business. 

Eric graduated from Coeur d’Alene High School and went on to get his associate’s degree from Northwood University in Midland, Michigan, in Automotive Marketing. 

He has been married to his wife, Shari, for 12 years and has two daughters, two stepdaughters, and a stepson. When he isn’t running a successful automotive empire, he enjoys boating and riding Harleys.

I am transitioning from the car industry to real estate to help my wife with her business and make it possible for my niece to continue her ambition to carry on the family legacy into the fourth generation of Knudtsen Chevrolet.
