Buying or selling a home is a pivotal point in your life, and you deserve to work with a Realtor® who puts your needs first. Whether you’re hunting for the dream home you’ve earned after years of hard work or trying to find a cozy getaway where you can escape cold weather, I’ll help you get there.

The luxury residential real estate market in southeastern Florida is unique. This area is where elegance and charm blend seamlessly with modern amenities and easy access to some of the Atlantic’s most relaxing beaches.

Our most sought-after areas include Intracoastal waterfront communities such as Lighthouse Point and Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, as well as the Oceanfront towns of:

  • Hillsboro Shores — East Pompano Beach
  • Hillsboro Beach
  • East Deerfield Beach
  • East Boca Raton
  • Highland Beach
  • Delray Beach

These remarkable communities offer the best of modern living and the luxury homes you deserve, and I’ll be happy to help you find exactly what you’re looking for along southeastern Florida’s most beautiful shoreline. Since I’ve lived and worked here for more than a decade, I can put you on the inside track to the home of your dreams.

Commercial Real Estate in Palm Beach and Broward Counties

Bustling communities, booming population growth and prime commercial real estate for sale all combine to make Palm Beach County and Broward County the perfect place to set up shop. Commercial Investment properties and businesses of all sizes thrive in our friendly communities, and I can help you tap into the benefits this area offers.

As a consultant to savvy business owners involved in property acquisitions and dispositions, and as a former executive management consultant with IBM and KPMG Management Consulting, I have the background knowledge required to find and identify the right property for your needs. My structured, hands-on management consulting experience supports rigorous economic analysis and project case and decision-making.

Experience, Skill, Value.

I believe that successful client service is achieved by offering the best client-specific opportunities that meet or exceed expectations. Part of the value I offer is offering the greatest tangible and intangible benefits to each of my clients.

My commitment to your happiness starts the moment you pick up the phone to call me—and it never ends. I’m there for my clients every step of the way.

A Word on Where I’ve Been

My extensive experience has given me the ability to sort through your concerns, prioritize your needs and find the perfect property for your family or your business.

As a former Manhattan resident with a graduate degree from Columbia University, I left New York’s frigid winters to live in breathtaking and sunny South Florida 15 years ago.

I’m committed to helping you find the perfect home in Broward County or Palm Beach County because I believe everyone deserves a comfortable haven—a place to relax, enjoy family time or just get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday stresses.

From the moment that you call or email me to the time that I watch you place your signature on the final paperwork, I’ll put your needs first and watch out for your best interests every step of the way.

Client Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Gary, last December 2012. I contacted Gary, and he immediately began the process of marketing my condo. He quickly arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures of my property. The pictures were well done & truly showed the beauty of my home. Within days, we had our first showing. Gary was always the ultimate professional & gave me 24-hour advance notice of prospective buyers that were scheduled to preview my condo.

Within three weeks, Gary had sold my condo for the price I wanted. I was extremely pleased with my real estate experience with Gary from the 1st phone call to the last. I highly recommend Gary and would suggest to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate to contact him. I know you will be pleased with the service & help he will provide to you.”

Cheryl R., Boca Raton, Florida

“Gary, we can’t thank you enough for handling the process for us. We are amazed how quickly and efficiently everything was handled by you; we would never hesitate to recommend you to family and friends alike; thank you again.”

Donna F., Westchester, New York

“Gary sold my beach condo on Hillsboro Beach in December 2012. The whole process took less than 4 months from original listing to closing. And all the while, I was living in Chicago. I got the selling price I desired and couldn’t have been happier with Gary’s service. I would definitely use his services again and have referred him to a family member who’s looking to purchase a home.”

Josh T., Chicago, Illinois

“We had very specific needs in acquiring a vacation property in South Florida when I contacted Gary. His market knowledge was extensive and as such, this avoided the problem of having to spend needless time looking at properties that would not meet our needs. Within a couple of weeks he found the right property, negotiated down the selling price and assisted us in transitioning into our East Coast vacation home. I found his professionalism and communication skills to be outstanding. We highly recommend him!”

Jim N., Los Angeles, California

“I found Gary to be a highly focused and very professional. It was with his patience and assistance that I found the right oceanfront condominium to buy. Coming to Florida from out-of-state presented geographic and time management issues, however, with Gary’s high degree of professionalism the process went very smoothly and alleviated any stress that I had anticipated. I say with great certainty that I would strongly recommend him as your Realtor®.”

Iris B., Smithtown, New York


“We contacted Gary regarding a property he was advertising in the Sun Sentinel newspaper. Upon speaking with him initially, I sensed that his command of the local market, pricing and comparative market understanding was deep. He was loquacious but to the point. I expressed my interest in purchasing the property and he give me a tight price range where he estimated the seller would accept an offer. I subsequently purchased the property and am very pleased with my decision. I would strongly recommend Gary and his team to anyone seeking to purchase [or sell] a property along the oceanfront in Broward County.”

Kenneth L., Geneva, Switzerland


“I contacted Gary when faced with the dual challenge of selling one property while at the same time searching for another property to purchase. The selling of my condo presented some rather unique challenges and after we discussed Gary’s approach to marketing and pricing my property, I was convinced he could get the job done. At the same time, my search for a property to purchase came with a very specific set of criteria and the search encompassed a wide geographic area. Gary’s broad market knowledge and his understanding of property valuation proved to be not only invaluable but afforded me the opportunity to acquire a property that exceeded my expectations. Within in weeks I sold and purchased both properties, all while living out of state.”
