Today we’d like to introduce you to Gary Ismail.
Gary, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I got started in real estate at a young age of 21 and started my journey with Coldwell Banker United Realtors located in Greenway Plaza and fast forward 16years later I have my own luxury boutique firm specializing in communities close to town ironically also located in Greenway Plaza. I just love the central location and easy access to freeways.
Has it been a smooth road?
No, this business has been a roller coaster ride and a good one, to say the least. It’s an extremely competitive business which keeps me on my toes at all times. One of the biggest struggles, in the beginning, was creditability and having one to trust you with probably there most expensive transaction in their life. Hard work and persistence has its rewards and I feel like its paid off at this point in my career.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that our city is so diverse and has such affordable housing for everyone compared to some of the other cities out there. I also just love the spirit of the southern hospitality down here. Everyone is so nice and willing to help which was recently proven by how the city came together after hurricane Harvey. #HoustonStrong.
