Gary’s clients have found that every step of the process in buying or selling residential real estate, from negotiating the contract offer to negotiating repairs, reflects Gary’s strict attention to detail and his commitment to seeing his clients benefit financially. The fact that Gary has been a recipient of the Austin Business Journal’s Residential Top Producer Award – EVERY year (since the inception of the program), a 2013 & 2014 Platinum Austin Top 50 Award Winner, a 2014 Five Star Professional Real Estate Agent as recognized in Texas Monthly Magazine- is a testimony to his 31 year reputation as as skilled professional who conducts his business with integrity. Gary’s involvement in community affairs also serves clients by making him a great source of pertinent information regarding local schools, future highway plans, neighborhood development and zoning, environmental issues and other factors that could influence home purchase decisions and future appreciation of value. Gary was recently awarded the Rotary Family and Community Service Award for many years of service to Southwest Austin. He is Past President and a current member of the Board of Directors for the Austin – Oakhill Business and Professional Association.
