Over a period of four years, Gary and I have bought and sold a total of 12 properties, all at substantial profits. We have rented, flipped, and he has helped friends and acquaintances buy personal residences at substantiality discounted commissions. Recently, we leased a commercial building, and we negotiated excellent terms. The most recent sale was a townhome, rented for three years to the same tenant, and then sold for substantial capital gains. Oh, and he answers the phone. Currently, we have our commercial building listed, and we are getting traffic almost immediately. We now look to New Horizons for opportunities in a changing market.

Gary helped me to both sell a home and buy a new one. He is top notch. Without question the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. He understands real estate markets and really cares that you get a home for the right price, even if it means his commission is less. And if he sells your home you will get a great deal because his listing commission is low. He also supports the sale 100% -- including helping you find contractors to make repairs, answering all sorts of questions, sweating the details. I love this guy and you will too. Less ... More

Gary sold my $500+ house on the golf course in less than 90 days. Not only that, his listing commission was 1 percent (as opposed to the usual 3) AND he sol the house himself with a 1 percent commission), saving us four percent of the total sale price? PLUS he recommended several contractors to do a needed roof repair, hurricane window installation and bath remodel. The ones I selected from his list were all excellent and keen not to let Gary down. The guy is incredibly attentive to detail, relaentlessly honest and straight-forward - and lives in College Park, so knows the area as his own backyard. At the last minute, he even found me a very reputable hauler to remove junk from the garage the day before closing. I would give Gary SIX STARS if I could as both a real estate agent and honest businessman. His slogan is correct, "Gary works for you." Less ... More

I am sorry to see that you only have five stars because this man is truly extraordinary. My first interaction with him was two years ago when I rented a property he managed for my family over Thanksgiving. Not only was he zealous in making sure that the property owner's interests were well-represented, he also kept in touch during the week to make sure that we had what we needed to enjoy the holiday and our family. The second time was in the last month when I called him in desperation because my son needed an apartment immediately in a specific neighborhood at a specific price with specific requirements. Gary went to work as if we were related. Within two weeks, he found the apartment, got it painted and cleaned, and coaxed the landlord into replacing the A/C. Quick communication, honesty and a good sense of humor. In short, the total package. Less ... More

As a first- time home buyer, I was nervous about the entire process, but with Gary's help and guidance I was able to purchase my home without any bumps in the road. He took the time explain every element and at no time did I ever feel rushed into making a decision. He always made me feel that his primary concern was to make sure I was was happy. Gary is a man of word and I would without a doubt reccomend him.

Two years ago I was trying to find a house in Atlantis to rent with my kids. Gary was the property manager for the house we found... he made the process seamless and easy. We have now been there for 2 years and every time I had any problems it was addressed and fixed right away. We are getting ready to sign another 2 year lease and wanted to take a minute to address how awesome it has been working with Gary and one of his properties! Thank you Gary for all you do you go above and beyond the call of duty and it is very much appreciated!!! Less ... More

I have been professionally involved with Gary for 5 years . We started out just finding tenants for me . Then when we saw an opportunity the aquire properties at rock bottom prices . Gary's real estate and extensive financial background proved to be excellent combination for negotiations and assessing profitability of each purchase . We bought 15 single family as we'll as condos .Some were flipped but most have been kept and managed by Gary and his very capable staff of tradesmen to keep the properties up to my standards and to keep the tenants happy . In 5 years we have managed to keep 97% occupancy rate . Thanks Don Schaab New horizons properties of south Florida Less ... More

Gary is the most impressive real-estate agent I've ever met in more than 30 years of buying homes. After two hours with him, my wife and I had the same thought: What an amazing experience. Most agents are professional and courteous. They have to be. That's their business. Gary was that and more. He connected all the dots -- and was honest and thorough to boot.

My wife and I came down from New York in search of a home armed with nothing more than what we had learned on Zillow. Meeting Gary changed that. He patiently guided us through the process of searching for and finally buying a home that we love - and he did so with an integrity that in my experience is not common among real estate agents. I have found him to be honest (sometimes brutally so), dependable, and meticulously professional. If you are looking for a highly competent real estate professional, Mr. Ferrara is your man. Less ...

I found Gary here on Zillow and decided to pick his brains and see some of his properties. We became friends because I somehow knew I could trust him. You could tell he was looking out for me and my best interest. He was not pushy and had great patience. We eventually found my dream home and he was so helpful in many ways leading up to the closing. I would recommend him highly and use him again when ready to purchase or invest. He's a straight shooter, trustworthy and efficient guy. And I know even though the sale is over ... I can always call him with questions pertaining about my home. ( He's great at remodel ideas also! ) A++ Less ... More

Gary sold my home quickly, professionally, and for half the commission other agents wanted. There were no extra fees, the closing was done by a local real estate attorney efficiently and cheaply. He told me he thought it was good business, and I couldn?t agree more. I believe I got a very good price, but the savings were substantial.

Gary has assisted us with the purchase of several investment properties in the Lake Worth area. We find him to be quite knowledgeable about the area and dealing with the intricacies of short sales and foreclosures. We recommend him to anyone needing an agent in the area and we will use him again either in buying new properties or selling any of our existing portfolio.

My wife and I needed a small place to retire into, and I had used Gary Ferrara before. We knew the general area we wanted to be in. He daily reviewed the computer listings, providing us with current data. With him, we looked at several houses and came upon one very close to our daughter. The price was negotiated by Gary to our satisfaction. The closing went smoothly, with Gary checking on the details as progress was made. Gary makes it a point to always be available on his cell phone. There is none of this, im busy call back. Gary is there. Gary has expanded his view of selling real estate to include home repair and property management. He can arrange for virtually any service you need. Gary is kinetic, knowledgable, and responsive. He monitors the availability of houses in the various areas for you. On top of all of this, he is pleasant and jovial. A solid citizen. Less ... More

I have never dealt with a more honest and enjoyable realtor than Gary. He knows the business and goes right to work for you. Gary is reliable and is right on top of the realty market. In this market he was able to get our house sold in 10 days while other homes sit on the market of months. I couldn't have asked for a better selling experience.

Gary Ferrara has been a blessing to my husband and I from 1000+ miles away. My husband and I re-located to Arizona and have begun the process of home ownership. Gary's ability to explain the market in Lehman's terms has decreased a considerable amount of the fear some of the Realtors here in Arizona have instilled. The beginning of our journey to home ownership had been rough and Gary was able to help smooth the waters and point us in the direction of a Zillow agent here in Phoenix. I would recommend Gary without hesitation. If I could have afforded to fly him out here, house him and feed him, I would have had him find our forever home!! Less ... More

Hi everyone, spoke with Gary last night and I was very impressed not only with his knowledge but with his honesty. I fell 100% comfortable working with Gary about properties even though i live in the greater NYC area. Gary seems to be honest and have GREAT intentions about real estate. Looking forward to working with Gary for a long time. Adrian.

Thank you!! I'm flattered. I think real estate investing can be a win win situation, and you display that attitude. I did this for myself in a different life, but it remains the same. Plan what you're doing, and where you are going. Respect your tenants, and yourself. Once in a while, you'll get a pie in the face. That's life. But, over time, this is a wonderful investment in the most perfect of times. You have the right attitude. Quality, respect, integrity. I think you'll go far. I hope to be able to help. Less ... More
