Living & Selling The Villages
Hello, my name is Gary Gompers. Though born in northern Virginia, most of my life was spent in an area of coastal Virginia known as Hampton Roads. More than twenty-five years ago, I began my career in the moving and storage industry, working for organizations with nationwide carrier affiliations and for an independent carrier firm. My responsibilities included move coordination for both commercial and residential clients. This large client base allowed me to work with real estate agents, property managers, and countless contractors. The company with which I spent the largest portion of this career had a very large ‘mature’ client base, and it was during this time that I first learned of The Villages. For the last ten years of my time in Virginia, more than 75% of my residential client base were 55+. This exposure provided me the opportunity to develop specific customer service skills appropriate to the needs and concerns of baby-boomers. I sincerely enjoyed being part of this industry and was proud to earn a Certified Moving Consultant designation.
I am a current full-time resident of The Villages, living with my wife in the village of Pine Ridge. Our dream of moving here started in 2010 following a long-weekend trip during which we visited more than 15 active adult communities. We made the mistake of making The Villages our first stop – nothing else could compare. For six years after that time, we made numerous visits here, each time being more assured that this was where we wanted to be. In 2016, I received a job offer with an Orlando-based moving firm which allowed us to make our permanent move in December of that year. This job offer had a single requirement – to develop business in The Villages. Only due to my extensive experience with the 55+ generation and my decision to be a full-time Villages resident was I lucky enough to be chosen for this position.
We have a son who lives in Chicago with his wife and our two precious grandsons. I still have family in Virginia, so my wife and I do make multiple trips each year to both locations.
I sincerely appreciate the opportunity given me by Realty Executives and look forward to a successful career. My wife, a licensed interior designer and stager, will assist me with administrative duties and serve as a valuable resource as needed. I look forward to working with all of you.
