Who Are We?
Gulf Breeze Automotive is a family owned business and we are conveniently located in the Tiger Point area of Gulf Breeze, Florida. The shop was opened in February of 2013 by Mason and Tracy Bragg, residents of Gulf Breeze, Fl. It was Mason’s lifelong dream to have his own auto repair shop since he started in the business in 1996. Our mechanics are ASE Master Certified, so you are getting top quality work on every repair. We provide every auto repair service your car might need. We service cars and trucks — most makes and models; including: Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevy, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jeep, Kia, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes, Nissan, Saab, Toyota, Volvo, Dodge, Saturn, Mazda, Mercury, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Scion, Subaru, Volkswagen, and more.
Meet the Staff:
Mason- Mason is the owner. Mason runs the day to day operations at the shop. Everything from garbage man to mechanic, he’s your man! (Somebody’s gotta do it.) It’s common to see Mason on the phone ordering parts, talking to customers, fixing cars, test driving cars, mowing the grass outside, giving customers a ride home, you never know with him. He sure keeps busy though! Mason has been an ASE Certified Master technician since 1996. It all started in a small garage in St.Cloud, Florida (thanks Roger). He is a gear head in the truest form. He spent 8 years working for a Saturn Specialist and also spent another 6 years honing his skills with Ford Motor Company as their Diesel Technician during their 6.0 days. The other time was spent working for an aftermarket shop handling various makes and models. His favorite challenges are the difficult to fix electrical problems and “my car is not running right” type of issues. Mason has the attitude that he can and will fix whatever comes through the door.
Ken- Ken is our general manager. He started at 16 years old in the business to pay his way through school to become an accountant. He figured out by the age of 18 that he made more money than he would as a seasoned accountant later in life, so he chose to stay as a technician. He became ASE Master Certified at the age of 21. He came to us in 2015 and we couldn’t be happier. He has God-given abilities, a true passion for what we do, and pride in everything he does.
Dana- Dana has been with us since 2013 when we first opened. She splits time between the shop and her 2 busy children and her husband. She’s an asset to our team here at Gulf Breeze Automotive. Chances are that you either have or will speak to her at some point in the process.
Lamont- Lamont is our lead technician. He has over 20 years experience in automotive and truck repairs. He is a very kind person who takes a lot of pride in the work he performs. You will not meet a nicer person!
Mike- Mike is a Master Technician. He has been in the auto repair business for over 20 years. Mike enjoys fishing anytime he’s not at work or spending time with his dog.
