Career Development Officer
Gary Davis began his professional career in Tallahassee as teacher after graduating with his degree in elementary education from Florida State University. Over the course of the next 12 years, Davis taught grades 3, 4, and 5 and truly loved every minute. Eventually, desiring a change, Davis decided to test the waters of real estate and realized he had found his new calling. He began his new career with Coldwell Banker Vanguard and has never looked back.
Davis was a multi-million-dollar producer his first year in the business and has earned awards for his production each year since. Davis prides himself on putting client relationships above anything else in his business and believes continuing to learn, grow, and better oneself is truly what makes a good agent great. Davis believes strongly in giving back to the community that has helped him build his business and he does so through his community Facebook pages, website, and charitable events organized by him throughout the year. “Just forget you’re a real estate agent and focus on helping people; that’s the most important part of the job” is a favorite quote of Davis’s and one he feels sums up his mission as an agent and community advocate.
In addition to being a full-time agent, Davis is also the Career Development Officer and Director of Agent Education and Training for the Mandarin and St. Johns offices. Getting to help buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, while also teaching and training fellow agents on how to be the best real estate professional they can be, is truly a perfect career combination for Davis and he is thoroughly enjoying all the hats he wears.
