"Finding Lucy Lou"
After 13 years with my Nelly (my Yukon), the time came that I had to replace her. :( I was looking for my first "me" car. Not my "taxi", like my Nelly. Not "my husbands choice for me", like the car before. I was looking for the first car with just me in mind. I researched cars for months, and KNEW this is what I wanted. Without saying any of that, Kris KNEW that was the case. Maybe it was my smile, twinkle in my eye, who knows. Kris made SURE that I didn't leave with anything but THE one that I wanted. He was sooooo kind, welcoming and just made us feel like long lost family! He made the whole car buying process so painless for me.
I can not thank him enough for helping me find my "Lucy Lou". I am so glad the he was my salesman, and even though I tend to hold on to my vehicles forever, I can honestly say that I have no intentions of car shopping anywhere else in the future.

This is the 6th Mazda that we have purchased since our first in 2004, and several (almost all!) of these have been through Kris Morales. I trust him to tell me the truth and not to try to sell me things that I don't need -- he's honest with me and I'm honest with him, which is HUGE. It's so refreshing to have that kind of relationship with your car salesman, instead of the cliche' that we're all used to! As always, he was a pleasure to deal with... friendly, funny, honest, knowledgeable. AND he sold me a fantastic car! I will gladly drive the 90 minutes from Baton Rouge to Houma as long as I can buy from Kris. He's not just the guy who sold me some Mazda's... I also consider him a friend!
Everyone at Barker was genuine, helpful, and friendly. Will definitely recommend to friends (already have!) and will buy from Kris/Barker again! :)

After extensive research regarding safety, handling, looks and reliability I came to the conclusion that I wanted a Mazda CX 5. I inquired thru the internet about a particular CX-5 and Kris got back to me immediately. He was informative, pleasant, congenial and completely "non-pressured". He was patient & friendly as I test drove several different trimmed vehicles. I felt that I was in capable hands. He found the right CX 5 and fit for me. James was also a pleasure to meet and deal with (Geaux Saints!!)
Really enjoyed getting to know Kris. He was very knowledgeable and was able to thoroughly answer any questions. Our paperwork took a while but Kris kept us entertained!

My wife and I decided to reward our Daughter for all her hard work in school, we researched the safest rated affordable vehicle on the Market , which led us to a high school classmate. We explained to Chris exactly what we wanted and he delivered literally!!! Chris wasted no time located our request with exceptional professionalism.Chris and Dick Baker make a winning time when it comes to that very important first car purchase!!!
Thanks Chris and the Dick Barker Team.
I had a great time doing business with Mark, Chris and James. They really explained everything to me and treated my like family. I enjoy going back just to visit.
"Great experience "
Buying a car was not one of my favorite things to do until I met Kris. He makes it easy and stress free. The dealership was friendly and comfortable. Even the finance guy, James, was nice. The drive to Houma was totally worth it. This is my 2nd car from Kris. He is the Rockstar of car sales.
"Another wonderful experience with Kris!"
I wouldn't normally drive more than an hour to buy a car, but to get one from Kris I would!!!
The reason for that is Kris makes an experience that I usually dread, quite easy.
I had not been to this dealership before, however, I found all of the people I encountered there
very warm and welcoming.
Glad I made the decision to work with kris he made the process super easy to understand and go through he made sure that I was informed about everything there was to know and was willing to answer any question I had 10 out of 10 would work with him again
Kris was awesome from the very first time we spoke. I found a car up to the Internet and inquired about it, he called me immediately. We quickly found out that he seem to of had the perfect car for me and drove an hour and a half just for me to look at it the next day ! Felt like a friend I had known all my life, he definitely was a part of making it the "most fun I've ever had getting in debt" with my new navigator ! 😃 first class experience from start to finish, thank you Kris!
