Raised in Raleigh, NC, Gary's real estate career began over 35 years ago with clearing a lot for a local builder who happened to be a college buddy. Gary successfully developed his first subdivision in North Raleigh in the 80s and started his first real estate office in 1995 with 9 agents. Today, the Coldwell Banker Advantage family of companies has over 1700 real estate agents and 55 offices across North and South Carolina.
As a youth and young adult, Gary spent most of his free time at the "Y" on Hillsborogh Street playing basketball and making life-long friends. Growing up in a family-owned sporting goods company, he learned how to run a successful business and developed sales and people skills. Hard work, integrity and responsibility are the traits that have guided him throughout this real estate career. He thrives on helping others to achieve their personal goals and aspirations.
Gary is a proud graduate of East Carolina University with degrees in Accounting and Economics. With his wife of 40 years, Gary enjoys traveling, boating, and the fellowship of good friends.
