Doug Rushing founded Doug Rushing Realty in 1974 in Tylertown, Mississippi. Doug founded Doug Rushing Realty at that time with a laid back Southern style of helping people and to this day Doug’s vision of helping people is how we approach your real estate needs. Doug touched many lives during his business career and mentored many young business men. Doug will always be missed but always remembered in the way we handle your unique real estate needs, like a friend.
Originally from New Orleans, I’ve been working in real estate in the Southwest Mississippi area for 30 years. I moved to Southwest Mississippi when I was 15 years old. I can sense the clients’ pleasure of making that move up here because I am one of them. I think it’s wonderful to help people fill those needs and build dreams of being up here. I cover a wide radius from Hattiesburg to the east, the Mississippi river to the west, the neighboring Louisiana Parishes to the south and as far north as Jackson. No matter the size from 1 acre to 1000 acres I would be honored to help fill your real estate need.

Max was born and raised right in Southwest Mississippi and is a graduate of Tylertown High School in Walthall County Mississippi. Max made his living off the land his entire life. Brought up in the cattle, farming and construction business, Max became his own boss in 1980 and added a dairy operation in 1986. In 2007, Max joined the Doug Rushing Realty team as a salesman. Since then, Max has strived to further his education in the Mississippi Real Estate industry and have received his Brokers’ license as well as being licensed by the state of Louisiana. Max’s history in the land business gives him a unique ability to understand what a Buyer is looking for and be able to match them up with the ideal Mississippi or Louisiana property. It also enables him to help Sellers in determining the highest and best use for their property and price it accordingly. Mississippi Homes, deer and turkey hunting camps, farmland, wooded and timberland have all contributed to his success in bringing new clients, referrals, and repeat business to Doug Rushing Realty.
Jacob Cantrell was born in McComb MS in 1983. Jacob is a graduate of the class of 2002 from Parklane Academy and went on to attend Southern Mississippi University. Jacob is fortunate enough to have been a part of the Rushing family since 1999, when my mother married Doug Rushing; making me Doug’s stepson. Having had the privilege to observe Doug’s work ethic and his desire to help people, I was convinced that working under his tutelage was where I wanted to be. In 2006, I received my licensure from the State of Mississippi to sell real estate and received a salespersons license from the State of Louisiana. I have serviced Southwest Mississippi and Northeast Louisiana ever since and have worked diligently building my credentials as a solid Mississippi and Louisiana real estate agent with an emphasis in land sales. I’m honored to walk in the footsteps of a not just a stepfather, but a mentor who has shaped the image of who I want to be. I’ll walk that extra mile for you.
McNeil Mitchell is from Tylertown, Mississippi. McNeil has been a Mississippi realtor since 2002. While in high school and college McNeil never imagined that he would later enjoy a career in Mississippi Real Estate as much as he has enjoyed his here at Doug Rushing Realty. It’s truly an honor and a privilege to be a part of a company that carries itself with such integrity as well as one that puts so much emphasis on honesty and dependability. Whether it’s deer or turkey hunting land, wooded or timberland, commercial property, or the dream home on beautiful acreage in the country, I really enjoy showing all types of real estate and helping you find the property that best suits your needs. Meeting people, showing them properties, and knowing I was a part of them buying the real estate they have always wanted, or getting a listed property sold for a client isn’t the biggest enjoyment of my job. To me, it’s developing friendships. That is the true reward of my profession. I’m here for you 7 days a week. Please let me know how I can help you.

A lifetime resident of Southwest Mississippi, I love to travel, I would not dream of living anywhere else. Southern hospitality, food, football and hunting…. what more could a girl ask for? I have been a licensed Mississippi Real Estate Agent for 2 ½ years, joining the Doug Rushing Realty, Inc. team in 2015, specializing in residential, commercial and recreational properties. While I enjoy all aspects of being a Mississippi realtor, being a buyer’s agent and being able to share in the excitement of a client when we find them the perfect Mississippi home, dream business or fun filled recreational property, is the most rewarding.
My name is Blake Bridevaux, I am the son of Alan Bridevaux. As a kid growing up, it was not uncommon for me to spend the entire day with my dad (Alan Bridevaux) or my grandpa (Doug Rushing) showing or looking at land and houses all over Southwest Mississippi. I didn’t expected at that time that I would join the family real estate business but as I grew up I gained a respect and an enjoyment in seeing pictures of kids with the first deer they killed off of a tract of land they bought from my father or grandfather. Many great friendships for both of them came from clients they met in Mississippi Real Estate and growing up in the real estate business, I felt I would be a natural at it. I graduated from Parklane Academy in 2013 and went to a Southwest Community College in Summit, MS called Southwest Mississippi Community College and then later attended the University of Anchorage Alaska. After living so far from home and fending for myself I knew I wanted to get a job and buy a home for myself. I love meeting people in my real estate business, I also love being outside and being around people that enjoy the outdoors as well. I hope to enjoy my next day of work helping you find exactly what you are looking for, weather Mississippi land or your dream home for the best price and under the best terms. My name is Blake Bridevaux and I approve this message.
A trademark of my success as a Realtor is my professionalism and dedication while keeping my clients informed every step of the way. “My goal is for all parties in real estate to have a pleasant experience that is handled efficiently.” Many of my clients know that I will go the extra mile to provide them with the quality of service that they deserve. My objective is to make sure every client is 100% happy with their sale or purchase. So far I have accomplished that objective with outstanding results…..”I care to be there for my clients.”
During my free time I enjoy hanging out with the children and playing with my beagle Koda. I also love gardening, flower arranging and socializing in the community, oh! and definitely shopping.
I believe that successful real estate transactions come about from hard work, enthusiasm, clear communication and mutual trust. When not busy with real estate, I enjoy spending time with my four children and their many activities. Interests also include bowling, outdoor activities, volunteerism for North Pike schools and church activities.
In her practice of real estate for 30+ years, she has been known for her great customer service. Her strong client base and loyal repeat customers is a reflection of her work ethics. She believes it is her job to make a transaction a positive experience for all parties: sellers, buyers, and cooperating agents. Gail is the proud mother of two sons and a grand dog, Cole. She shows her love of God, not only in her personal life, but with her commitment through the years in Lion’s Club, Relay for Life, and Community involvement. In her free time, her favorite thing to do is gardening “digging in the dirt and watching things grow”.
