Respect and reflection describe Garys’ foundational principles for the service to others.
Over the last several decades Gary has had the privilege to represent more than one thousand clients or friends and achieve success in real property sale and acquisition management.
Prior to his career in the Real Estate industry, Gary attended the FBI National Academy. He qualified for and attended the National Labor Relations forum where he was exposed to interactive workshops in mediation, problem identification, and contract negotiation. The skills acquired at the Academy have contributed to the continued success of Garys’ clients, and taught him that being an attentive listener equals a goals oriented result.
Excited to utilize his knowledge from the Academy for the public good, Gary proudly served three terms as a locally elected Council Person, Mayor, and elected City Treasurer. This political arena expanded his base knowledge of local zoning and municipal laws. While serving as Treasurer, Gary focused on budgets to fund critical public services and infrastructure needs. While Mayor, the council was praised by local environmental groups for the success in the use of Federal Super Fund money to reduce water pollution in the Santa Monica Bay. The same council was privileged to bring reduced density ordinances to fruition. These ordinances successfully reduced building density and lessened the burden of over population. In concert with a local Congressman the council successfully defeated the Secretary of the Interior in his attempt to allow oil recovery in the Santa Monica Bay.
Such accolades caught the attention of then Governor Pete Wilson. At the end of Garys’ terms at the local municipal level, he was asked to join the Governors’ appointed staff in an effort to better manage California historical records and other historically significant objects. As chairman of this commission Gary focused on becoming the voice of all Californians to provide a California State Archives repository which would be accessible to all.
