About McCormick Real Estate and Management


Veteran Owned Business

McCormick Real Estate & Management is a Veteran owned business founded by Gary McCormick in July 2013.   While we specialize in the commercial real estate market, we also market residential real estate from time to time. Gary received a Liberal Arts degree in Journalism from Duquesne University where he was also on the diving team.  While employed as a head hunter recruiting for executives in the real estate, company management, asset management and property development industries, Gary developed a strong interest in the real estate industry.  He obtained his commercial real estate license in 1990 and his broker’s license in 2000. Gary brings more than two decades of commercial real estate experience in the tri-state area to McCormick Real Estate & Management.  

Throughout his career, Gary has utilized his expertise and experience to compliment his professionalism which has allowed him to establish successful relationships and extraordinary results for his clients.  Gary understands the commercial real estate market intricately and is passionate in the pursuit of cost savings for his clients through excellence in service.  After working for Kossman Development and Prudential Real Estate, Gary saw a better way to support clients and manage their individual needs leading to opening McCormick Real Estate & Management in July 2013.

When Gary is detached from his headset, he enjoys kayaking and spending time with his family. Gary comes from a large family and is one of 9 children.  Family is a very important part of Gary’s life.  Outdoor activities rank the top of Gary’s list.  He enjoys swimming, hiking, biking, skiing, white water rafting, canoeing, and kayaking.  In 2004, Gary had the opportunity to kayak the Grand Canyon; “a very Memorable Trip,” said Gary. A veteran of the United States Air Force, Gary combined his love of the water and kayaking with his desire to help wounded veterans by joining Team River Runner.  As a volunteer with Team River Runner, Gary takes wounded veterans kayaking twice each month (weather permitting) during the summer months.  This adventure allows veterans to forget about their injuries for a few hours while enjoying the adventure of whitewater and kayaking.  In addition, kayaking helps them improve their health, strength, and connection with nature.  For more information about Team River Runner, please visit their website at http://www.teamriver.org.  Gary is also a member of and serves on the board of Three Rivers Paddling Club,  a local kayaking organization.  For more information, please visit their website at http://threeriverspaddlingclub.org.
