Gary helped us short sale two homes. He paid absolute attention to all details, was kind, patient and supportive, and
helped us maintain a positive state of mind. I would trust him absolutely to get the job done, and can't recommend him
strongly enough. Lorrie F., Sarasota.


"I have known Gary for a number of years and was introduced via a mutual friend Tony Quirke. I am fully confident that
the services and expertise he offers can be of great assistance. I have on numerous occasions recommended Gary and
have never received one complaint. That kind of consistency cannot be achieved through luck but is testament to his
ability to get on with people, engage them, build trust, and of course offering them a great service."


"I chose 3 attributes for Gary as limited by LinkedIn and Gary is all of those things but so much more. He is a creative
thinker and places himself in your shoes so he can get the proper perspective. He's always punctual and burns the
midnight oil. I'm not sure Gary is ever "off the clock". If you are looking for a realtor, a friend or an honest opinion, you
can't go wrong with Gary."

“We met a woman on Siesta Key Beach who DID NOT buy or sell a home or condo with Gary BUT did highly recommend
him because he went out of his way to help her, a total stranger to Gary, with some great financial advice that saved her
condo! I took a chance and gave Gary a shot to help us find our Dream Home here in Sarasota. I believe it was "Divine
Intervention" that we found Gary and his lovely wife Nancy. We looked at multiple properties in Sarasota, Osprey and
Nokomis from April 2010 through March 2011. Gary was extremely helpful with everything we asked of him. Gary
exhibited a high degree of patience and integrity with us. His input and expertise as we evaluated properties was
incredibly valuable. We highly recommend Gary to anyone that we come across looking for his services!”
Thank you Gary!

Gary has been very helpful to my wife and I in our search for a retirement home in the Sarasota area. We particularly appreciate his
getting to know us and our needs and wants before choosing homes to show us. We recommend Gary to anyone seeking assistance
from a true real estate professional.

Gary went above and beyond to get our condo sold.  He made minor repairs, moved funiture around, and did a pre-listing inspection, which identified a failing water heater.  Gary staged and marketed our home so that it sold quickly and for a good price after we had wasted three months with another agent who got no offers for us.  Highly recommend Gary; he is the best!


Gary has been our real estate agent for purchasing a condo in Siesta Key, the sale of the same condo several years later, and purchasing a condo on Anna Maria Island.  He is very knowledgeable about the local property market and always goes above and beyond to bring the sale to closure to everybody's satisfaction.  He is a pleasure to work with for buying or selling real estate.

We lived in VA, and we came to Sarasota exploring options for a purchase of a home.  We met Gary while touring a home that was conducting an open house.  We were very impressed with the knowledge that Gary had of the Sarasota housing market, so we asked him if he would help us find a new home.  Gary listened to what we were looking for as far as the features that we wanted in a home, and he did a remarkable job of finding a list of homes that matched our profile.  In short order, we found our dream home in Sarasota County.
