Hi, I’m just I am MS Born and Raised. Grew up in a small town in Mid Mississippi and moved to the MS Gulf Coast in 1989 to Assist a Local Mission which I later formed into a Church. Began my Family here and decided to make it home. I chose The car Business after being urged by a Manager in the business at that time. It was perfect to assist with Ministry and to support my family. So for 30 years now I have made it my profession. I was with Pat Peck Nissan for over 24 years until this opportunity with the Ray Brandt Organization arose. I assisted in the opening of this New Site. I Proud I made the move. I’m Grateful. I Love Out Doors, and Horseback Riding. I Enjoy meeting new people and assisting them with their dreams and seeing the smile because it became a reality. I look forward to meeting you. Contact me if I can assist.

Hi, my name is JB. I am a native of the MS Gulf Coast, New Orleans LA, and South Louisiana(bayou country). I was born here on the Coast, but raised between here, and Louisiana. I have a couple of passions in life including cooking, fishing, painting, and music. I can play a variety of high brass instruments as well as the piano and drum-set. Even though I fish both salt and fresh water, I prefer saltwater fishing. I can cook almost anything I set my mind to. My specialties are steaks and seafood. When it comes to painting, depending on my mood, I love to paint outdoor scenery, to abstract. I love what I do, and I never meet a stranger.

Hi Jeannie, I am sorry that Josh, your sales manager, acted like a xxxxxxx by dismissing us the way he did. It worked out to our benefit though. We ended up buying a Kia Optima S at Pat Peck. It is twice the car, with gap insurance and a much better warranty, and came in under the 400.00 payment that I was looking for. This was the 2nd time Josh drove away my business, he needs to find a different line of work. You did a good job and I think you could go far in the business, if you had a sales manager that was people friendly. Thank you for your time with us and best wishes in your future endeavors. Sincerely,
