About Me/Profile of yourself: - Please add your Brokerage Company name also!
Mr. Benjamin of Hook and Ladder Realty, was born in Taiwan to American parents who later settled in the State of New Jersey. After high school, Gary attended Central Texas College and University of Maryland while serving in the United States Army. While in the military Mr. Benjamin served his country in many foreign lands and specialized in electronics. Gary received (3) three Army Commendations Medals and retired with an honorable discharge, and a 10% service related handicap.
Mr. Benjamin used his United States Army training to open an electronics company specializing in controlling Air Pollution. The business began in New Jersey but later moved to the State of New Hampshire. The small business became a multi-million dollar enterprise. This allowed Gary to form more than (17) seventeen businesses over the course of a decade.
After (13) thirteen years of operating the air pollution control business, Gary and his wife decided to move to Florida. In a very generous way, Mr. Benjamin sold the company to his employees and it is still operational today. Once in Florida Gary became a residential realtor and soon thereafter a Licensed Real Estate Broker. In late 2005, Gary owned a franchise Real Estate Business and by 2007 ranked in the top 10% nationwide.
Gary is now a Certified Licensed Real Estate Instructor, the highest designation achievable in the State of Florida and teaches classes to other realtors as well as being a real estate broker.
With Mr. Benjamin’s wealth of experience in the business environment and his extensive worldwide traveling, he is an invaluable asset to the operation of our law firm and our Short Sale Clients. Gary has been the primary person responsible for the negotiations of the short sales that come to our office over the last 2 years. He is able to handle this business while still instructing classes, and performing real estate services. He has completed over 200 short sales himself from start to finish. His designations include “Certified Distressed Property Expert”. If the need ever arises it is good to know that I can have this person in my corner.
