Gary James is a Realtor, but with a background unlike many others.  What began as a  military career turned into a lifetime of unusual jobs within the military and the private sector.  

Gary joined the Army following in the footsteps of his father and uncles who served in the Army, Navy and Marines.   However, over the next several years, he developed a special set of skills  that proved useful within the Special Operations community.  After years protecting our country, he moved on to a private military contractor and eventually to the Department of Defense where he worked as a DOD civilian within a Special Operations Quick Reaction Team.  

Retirement didn’t last long and soon after moving south, Gary started a new career working for a private military contractor before taking a position with a National Education Foundation that concentrated on National and Economic security. Nearly a decade later Gary finally decided to realize a lifelong dream and entered the real estate arena.   

“I held my real estate license years before, but can now focus on this as a career,” Gary says.  “I know that my experience with the military really prepared me for a career in real estate. I’m trained to be well disciplined, detail oriented, and dedicated to doing things the right way, not halfway. I’ve traveled throughout six continents and uniquely qualified to interact with many cultures".
