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.

I am not a big participant on writing reviews but rather just give the STARS review; but this will be well worth the review and read. If you're looking for a SUV that is not luxury, I recommend Nissan- specifically Ray Brandt in D'Iberville, MS! My husband and I originally wanted to see a Rouge in person, that I saw online (A surprise gift for my Mother-in-Law by the way). However, that specific vehicle was sold out that day we came in. Kevin Payton, my salesman- also Sales & Business Manager, recommended another SUV within our budget- we test drove the vehicle and decided that we wanted the vehicle; however, with minor cosmetic repairs and cleaning (being that it was a used Certified vehicle) A few days later we went to pick up our SUV, but it was not up to our standards. We spoke out our feelings with disappointment and Mr. Payton can just see it in our eyes and hearts! He then called over the General Manger, Philip Pogue, (poor guy, it was his FIRST day!) We expressed how disappointed we were with our agreement on the repairs and cleaning. Well Mr. Payton and Mr. Pogue promised to get it right for us- still we left the dealership with disappointment and hope that the next visit it will LOOK great and FEEL great. A week later, (Yes, I will have all the patience it takes to get this SUV in a perfect demeanor for my Mother-in-Law), we went to pick up the vehicle and I have to say, it was BEYOND what I expected- it looks like a certified BRAND NEW stinking car!! Both of these fella went above and beyond our expectations and provided a FANASTIC customer service and made certain that we are HAPPY. I even notices a little extra add-on's that just made it the best vehicle purchase experience I ever had! So with that being said, y'all go see Mr. Kevin Payton- he will definitely make sure you're content, 100%. Not to mention, he's super honest, friendly, patient, humbly, and TRUSTWORTHY!! This shows me he's not there to make it a SELL, but a CUSTOMER SERVICE satisfaction. Thank you, Mr. Payton!

I look forward to doing business with Ray Brandt as this is my first time to purchase a vehicle from them. If their service department is as awesome as Patrick is they will be a keeper and I will certainly be back to buy another vehicle from them!! Would love to thank Shannon and Brian for all of their attention to my car.... They were most informative regarding my vehicle and kept me informed as much as possible in a timely fashion. I would just like to thank them for their efforts!! Also Patrick Oriol is the reason I switched to this car dealership. As long as he is there I will be doing business with Ray Brandt Nissan of South MS!!! Thank you all again!!! Merry Christmas!!!

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.

Not having much knowledge about buying a car, I would have to say I am thankful I went here as they were most helpful, and assisted me. Unlike most dealerships, I never once felt harassed, cornered or pressured, and was asked several times if I understood everything rather than just shoving papers at me. I doubt anyone is ever happy about paying a car note, but at least I know I made a good purchase I am confident my wife will be safe in. Thank you Jason and Mrs. Caroline, for making a typically unpleasant experience, educational and enjoyable.
