About | Gary grew up in Washington State. He graduated from the University of Maryland (1979) with a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Art. He taught drawing, painting and art education at the University, before venturing into a 20+ year career as an art dealer. He is an accomplished equestrian and horse owner, and has lived in the Washington, DC area for 37 years. In 2002, Gary became a Realtor. In 2006, Gary achieved the status of “#1 Top Producing Agent” in one of the top 10 offices of the largest privately held real estate company (243 offices, 16,000 agents) in America, Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. He is consistently in the top 100 agents company-wide and is honored as one of the top 5% of Realtors in North America. Gary is a certified historic properties specialist and sees enormous similarities between historic homeowners & art devotee’s, both understand and relish the intangible nature of things. Gary believes that... "A historic home's true value can only be ascertained with specialized marketing that shares its virtues and benefits in a manner that compells a prospective buyer to act. It is the understanding of the unique nature of a historic home that bonds the buyer to it. When asked, most historic home owners will tell you that they fell in love with their homes at first sight. Successful historic home marketing has to facilitate and amplify that experience, while minimal traditional real estate marketing does not even begin to satisfy that need."
