About the Goldsmiths
After college, he turned in his saw for a sail and joined the US Navy. Serving his country for four years, Gary returned to pick up his saw, and the rest is history.
Embarking on the business end of the construction field, Gary held supervisory positions with FA Gray Painting Contractors and The Wentworth-by-the-Sea Hotels, where he had the privilege of working with the English craftsman, Mr. Turner. Under his direction, Gary studied furniture finishing and learned high-end stain and paint finishing techniques.
Additional studies included courses on blueprints and building design. His Real Estate license fresh in hand, Gary’s first transaction was a project for which he acted as designer, builder and sale negotiator, an office/meeting complex for a regional Tupperware franchise.
In the early 1980’s The Goldsmith Company was formed and began successfully building custom homes in the New Hampshire seacoast region.
By the early 1990’s, New Hampshire was experiencing a significant market downturn, so Gary made the move to New Jersey and opened The Goldsmith Company’s second location in 1998. The New Hampshire branch has now closed and Gary, along with his wife Karin, devote all of their time to their New Jersey clients.
