BRETT ALLEN ROES - BUS & MOTORCOACH INSPECTION AND APPRAISALS

Brett Allen Roes

Brett and Becky Roes started Eagle Christian Tours after serving for many years in Christian ministry. The idea for Eagle Christian Tours came about in 2008 when Brett helped organize a motorcoach tour to New England for the senior’s ministry in his home church. Having grown up singing gospel music and driving entertainer-style motorcoaches from a very young age, Brett jumped at the chance to share with the group some of his favorite out-of-the-way places in his home state of Maine. Without any prior experience, Brett and Becky planned their very first trip by traveling the way that they liked to travel…a touring recipe that would soon propel them into the motorcoach touring industry.

Soon thereafter Carson and B.J. Roes, Brett and Becky’s two oldest sons, joined the growing staff at Eagle Christian Tours. Since that time the company has expanded to include charters, educational tours for public and private schools and colleges, musical groups and marching bands, corporate travel, and family vacations. However, the largest segment of growth has been in collegiate sports travel. Eagle Christian Tours has served over a hundred teams in both public and private high schools, colleges, and universities and continues to grow in the South East Region of the U.S. as a premier sports travel provider.

Brett specializes in Eagle Model 15 & Model, Prevost XL & H model motorcoaches. Brett’s honesty and integrity have earned the respect of everyone that has with him.
