Gary’s Personal Background
Gary’s passion for service began in the Air Force where he worked as a medic and earned honors from both the military and the American Red Cross for life-saving actions and exemplary duty. He also was selected to serve as a member of the USAF Base Honor Guard. Towards the end of his tenure in the military, Gary’s father introduced him to real estate and he knew immediately that it was a good fit – he got his license and started selling real estate in 1987. He began with the well-respected DeWolfe Company and is now a broker with REMAX On The Charles.
Gary entered the real estate profession in tough economic times but his military background, and his appreciation for teamwork taught him how to overcome obstacles to succeed. In his first year, he was awarded the DeWolfe Company's 'Rookie of the Year'.
