During the start of his career in the early 1990s recession, Gary focused on assisting banks in the disposition of their real estate assets. He was successful in selling a high percentage of the distressed commercial assets in the Sacramento region during that period. Toward the end of the 1990s and through the beginning of early 2000s Gary was instrumental in identifying and acquiring turn around properties for his clients which led to him being asked to become involved in the partnerships themselves. Gary not only identified and underwrote the assets but set up the partnership structure and provided the presentation packaging for the equity and financing sources to fund the acquisition.
In 2014, Gary Gallelli left Voit Real Estate and started Gallelli Real Estate. He has successfully recruited the top talent in the industry as Managing Director and continues to be a top producer across the region.
