Gary J. Dempsey is, first and foremost, an LA Boy. You could even say he was bequeathed this city. His family opened an inn and Fish ’n Chips shop in Los Angeles when they first arrived here from Scotland several generations ago, and Gary has had the life of this city running through him since he was a child. From playing baseball in Burbank, to eating tacos in Korea Town (Chato’s Taco Truck is his favorite), to pub- crawling in DTLA or biking on the Santa Monica Beach, Gary knows the city inside and out.
A professional entrepreneur, Gary was first introduced to the world of real estate when he was presented with the opportunity to learn Marketing for the industry in the late 90’s. The real estate industry fascinated him, and he began work as a loan officer in 2000. He ran his own show for several years as a loan officer and escrow specialist before obtaining his real estate license in 2005. He subsequently worked for Zip Realty and Re-max in Manhattan Beach. Ever the student, Gary also became a financial consultant during this time, a service he still offers his clients today. He went on to open his own brokerage, Dempsey Real Estate, in 2012.
Gary has since joined forces with Harcourts Hunter Mason Realty in 2018. Harcourts functions off of a revolutionary marketing and sales platform that protects both the buyer and the seller, something Gary is passionate about.
Harcourts also utilizes an innovative auction platform, a tool the brokerage has developed and perfected for over 120 years. Gary uses his knowledge and experience to guide his clients through the home buying process from start to finish. He approaches his work not just as a realtor, but as an entrepreneur, finance coach and and loan specialist.
When Gary isn’t entrepreneur-ing, you might find him traveling the world with his wife Yvette and their family and friends. Gary is also an avid volunteer for city projects, sporting events and patriotic causes. He also donates to veterans’ programs whenever possible.
