Greetings. I’m Hollis C. Gaynor. I’m the son of two great parents, brother to 3 wonderful sisters, father to 3 awesome kids, and grandfather to 4 beautiful grandchildren. As a transplant to North Carolina, from Upstate New York, I bring with me 5 years of real estate lending experience as a Mortgage Banker, 3+ years of real estate investing experience as an active Remodel/Resell Investor, and 12+ years as a US Army Officer in various leadership positions serving our country in Iraq (2003-2004) and Afghanistan (2012) to assist you in all of your real estate needs. I am also a proud member of the North Carolina Army National Guard.

I approach service to my clients, the same as I do with service to my country. With loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage as my core values, I operate on the basis of offering outstanding service to my clients while creating a win/win atmosphere for all involved. I think of myself more as a Transaction Engineer. A Conductor, if you will, bringing the adventurous journey of the meeting between Seller and Buyer to a successful completion.

With having experience as a mortgage banker, real estate investor, and 20 years of military service as an Officer and enlisted person gives me good insight into the thought process of bankers, investors, sellers, and buyers alike to aid in finding the right fit to suit their particular situation. Serving in Afghanistan, as a Base Closure Assessment Team (BCAT) Leader, afforded me the opportunity to engage with Senior Level Commanders, and High-end Volume Contractors to coordinate complex real estate and logistical operations. That tour gave me the experience needed to present, and interact, with clients from all facets of the real estate market. From first time homebuyers searching for their piece of the American dream, to High Net-worth Investors searching for good Real Estate Investments (REI) that will help achieve their overall financial goals and objectives.

So, if you or someone that you know is thinking of buying, selling, or investing in Real Estate, I hope that you would give me the opportunity to be of service to meet your real estate needs.
