Just bought my second car from RAES Auto Sales. It was a great experience overall. Ray understood how important of an investment this was to me and was very fair and honest.

Outstanding! We got a great deal on a solid 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander. Couldn’t imagine getting better service and support from another car dealer in the area. Ray is a really genuine nice guy who brightens any room he’s in. He’s knowledgeable, generous and friendly — and the beating heart of this family business. If you’re in Barrie and the area or even in the GTA, and..

Recently had the opportunity to purchase a vehicle from Ray! It was an extremely positive and enjoyable experience! Ray was very informative and knowledgeable about the vehicles on his lot! Ray's prices were very reasonable, and there was no pressure to buy, at any time! I would definitely recommend my family and friends to go see Ray for their next vehicle
