Gary Lundholm began his real estate career in 1987 and quickly established himself as one of the most successful REALTORS® in Hampton Roads. Lundholm has been a consistent recipient of the Hampton Roads REALTORS® “Circle of Excellence” Award, with multiple Platinum level awards during his career. Lundholm’s career has run the gambit in the world of residential real estate, from resale and new construction to short sales, foreclosures, and REOs. He also has significant experience in the areas of land acquisition and development. In 2003 Lundholm and business partners Joseph Auzenne and Steven Edwards co-founded The Real Estate Group, which in 4 short years became the #1 full-service real estate office in Hampton Roads. Today, The Real Estate Group enjoys multiple locations strategically positioned to serve all of Hampton Roads. Convinced that the real estate industry was in the midst of a major paradigm shift, Lundholm and his partners set out to replace “old school” methodologies and mindsets with innovative practices designed to create a real estate company for today’s market place: one in which both the agent and client experience the highest level of service and support. Always an agent at heart, Lundholm committed himself to providing associates with a business model that maximizes company support by utilizing the very best in real estate technology, training, and business solutions. The company is also dedicated to community involvement and supports a number of local charities, including EDMARC Hospice for Children, the beneficiary of the firm’s annual Toys & Trees for Kids holiday event. In addition to his mandated responsibilities as Principal Broker, Lundholm oversees the development of new systems, marketing resources, and technology platforms for the company. He also directs the firm’s business growth strategy, which includes the development and implementation of company branding programs and the recruitment and retention of the high-quality, career-minded agents that make up The Real Estate Group. Outside of The Real Estate Group, Lundholm serves on the Board of Directors for the Real Estate Information Network (REIN). He is a 10-year Navy veteran who originates from Detroit, Michigan. He has chosen to call Hampton Roads home since 1986 and resides in Chesapeake with his wife Mary Lou, also a successful REALTOR®.
