Garden City Realty was established in 1973 when Eugene (Beau) Forshee, Fred L. Wilcox and M. Murray purchased Martin's Real Estate Company and changed the name to reflect the office’s location at the corner of Dogwood Dr. and Atlantic Ave. in Garden City Beach. In 1978 Garden City Realty moved to its present location on Atlantic Avenue in Garden City Beach.
Since 1973 rentals have grown from 18 properties to more than 450 resort homes and condominiums today. In 2001 Garden City Realty bought By the Sea Realty and its on-site office in the oceanfront Surf Master by the Sea building. Then in 2009 Garden City Realty purchased and merged Condotels with its vacation rentals department.
Lee Hewitt, Broker-In-Charge of real estate sales, has been with the firm since 1981 and Dennis McElveen, Broker-In-Charge of vacation rentals, has been with Garden City Realty since 1977.
The sales department includes ten sales professionals, a sales and relocation coordinator, and an advertising coordinator. All of Garden City Realty agents are multi-million dollar producers who are actively involved with the local, state, and/or national real estate associations by attending classes, maintaining memberships, or by serving as officers and members.
In addition to extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, Garden City Realty can assist real estate needs worldwide through its affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®.
