The Industry’s Leading Expert on Real Estate CRM is Gary David Hall
Many consider Gary to be the industry’s leading expert on Real Estate CRM. He started using it as an active agent in 1988 with a DOS program called Real Estate Specialist (RES). When his sales took off as a result, he was asked to teach it at the Montgomery County Association of Realtors at round tables in 1989.
He discovered he liked teaching! A lot!
In one of the testimonials you will see a statement to the effect that Gary is an exciting speaker because he is so obviously passionate about it. He left a very lucrative career in real estate sales because he discovered his true passion was teaching technology in Real Estate.
Gary then spent two years as the roving technology consultant and technology trainer for the SEPA & DE Regional RE/MAX offices. In 1999 he founded RE-ACT, LLC to share his knowledge about technology. For the next eight years he honed his speaking skills as a real estate continuing education teacher.
Now after spending over three years as the VP of Customer Success as the fourth man in, in a startup real estate CRM, there is no aspect of real estate CRM of which Gary has not been a part.
For a very detailed list of his background and experience you can go here.
It’s rare to find someone who understands both the Real Estate business and the intricacies of CRM software. Gary excels at both and has written the definitive book on selecting a CRM for our industry! Positively a “must read” before you invest the time and money into a CRM
Hi Gary – Because I’m a good student who listens to the instructor :>), I created the activity plans you recommended while I was taking your class. And I’m thrilled that I did. As you promised in the class, my stress level is dramatically reduced. I’m juggling 9 transactions at the moment, and don’t worry about a thing because my CRM tells me every day what needs to be done. If some unforeseen event needs to be scheduled, I just add it to the plan. I love it!
Following are some of the more popular topics about which he speaks.

“Excellent & exciting! As a college teacher for 20+ years, I can really appreciate the value & experience of high quality instruction, coupled with an engaging and entertaining personality. I’ll be signing on for more of Gary’s courses in the future.”
“When Gary talks about technology in Real Estate he lights up. His passion for the topic is fun; he has a great sense of humor; and he keeps everybody involved…”
“Thank you for a most interesting, informative, well prepared, structured, course. You have managed to make sense of a very confusing issue (Technology). As instructors rate, I give you an A+. You captured 100% of my attention, and that is not easy!
“We thoroughly enjoyed the classes you held at our office. Both the agents and I felt the material presented was of a significant value and will help us in our day-to-day work activities. Being more efficient and managing time effectively will only continue to grow in importance in our industry. Having a knowledge of and being able to use technology is an absolute must in today’s business world.
I especially appreciated that fact that you took the time to present an outline to me prior to the class so that we could custom-tailor it to our agents. So many times people take classes where the speaker / teacher never investigates the level of sophistication of his or her students and consequently a significant amount of time is wasted going over items in which the students are already proficient. The agents also appreciated you allocating time for their questions both during and at the conclusion of the class.
Bringing educators like you into an environment like ours provides tangible evidence of the value we as owners and managers provide our associates. As you know, both classes you gave were complete sell-outs with waiting lists. I am looking forward to having you back soon!”
