Gary Bertorello, broker

Most people are forced to make the choice between doing the job they love and living in an area they love. And here I am, doubly blessed with both. ….a native of Montrose with a century of family history here in the Uncompahgre Valley….doing the job I want to do. I began my real estate career in 1993. Since then my transactions have ranged from residential to restaurants, apartment complexes, agricultural property, land development and new home construction. The keys to my success in this business are equal parts proficiency, constant attention to detail, and a healthy sense of humor. If you’re looking for a professional broker with enthusiasm and a knack for getting things done, please give me a call.
