“As a professional real estate advisor, I focus on client satisfaction,” says Gar Finnvold, who handles luxury residences and condos in all price ranges in East Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and other South Palm Beach County communities. An award-winning top producer, he attributes his success to very basic principles: he’s real, he’s honest, and he works hard for every client.
Whether a client is thinking of relocating or wants to sell a home, Gar's insider knowledge and experience can make a huge difference. He knows the ins and outs of the city and surrounding areas. “Having been born and raised in the area,” he says, “I can provide a lot of history and unique information that most other agents aren’t aware of.”
“My wife and I have one word for Gar: fantastic,” comments one former customer of his online. “We had some issues with our pool and lawn, but knowing we were out of town, Gar took it upon himself to line up great people to do the work so we wouldn’t have to think or worry about it.” Says another appreciative client, “Gar’s follow-up and attention to detail are great. He pushes when it's needed but does so in a way that makes both parties feel good.”
As a pre-med major on an athletic scholarship at Florida State University, Gar excelled at baseball — including pitching in the College World Series — while earning All-American and Academic All-American honors. Following eight years with the Boston Red Sox, he entered the real estate market in 2000. “Sports and real estate both require hard work and dedication,” he says, “and I believe mastering those traits as an athlete set me up for success in the real estate industry.”
In his free time, Gar enjoys spending time on the water free diving and fishing, and loves coaching baseball and sharing his knowledge and experiences with young athletes.
