GARY GILMER began his career in 1987 by renovating homes in the elegant Buckhead neighborhoods off Northside Drive. A few years later, Gary began buying and developing lots for residential homes in the Brookhaven area, an older, established neighborhood with wonderful mature trees and sidewalks. While no less convenient than Buckhead to all of the ambiance for which Atlanta is famous, the Dekalb County section of Brookhaven remained largely undeveloped in the late 80’s. In 1992 Gary was featured in Georgia Trend Magazine for the impact he was having in the Brookhaven area. As you drive the streets off of N. Druid Hills Road, Gilmer’s signature style is readily identifiable.
