Kim Bray

My experience began at The Family Ford Store. My family owned the dealership 60 years ago from 1927 until 1987 and they sold Model T’s door-to-door with a photograph. Today, I am selling cars differently but still enjoys selling quality vehicles with a personal touch like my family did 60 years ago.

Along with 39 years of experience, I am also certified with GM, Ford and Chrysler but my specialty has always been trying to understand the pulse of the customer. The Auto Center has a great professional staff that understands what our customers want. We have a saying, ‘A car’s history is no mystery.’ We operate with the same high-standards as Lake Michigan Credit Union and realize that it is not enough to just be moving cars off the lot. We want you to come back because you received an excellent price on a quality pre-owned vehicle plus an enjoyable experience.
