About Gary David Hall
Gary David Hall literally wrote the book on Real Estate CRM. Coming from a background as a computer technician and then computer operations, Gary started in real estate sales in 1987. When it became evident that the industry needed the technological efficiency he used in his personal business, he decided to share that knowledge with other real estate professionals. So he founded RE-ACT, LLC (Real Estate Automation, Consultation and Training) in 1999.
