Remembering the Langston Hughes poem "Dream Deferred" asking "What happens to a dream deferred?", I am Ray Gales and I would like to be your ultimate real estate professional to help you realize that your real estate dreams have become a reality. I am originally from Cleveland/Shaker Hts., OH, then later moved to Columbus/Whitehall, OH where I graduated from Capital University with a BA in Business Management with Marketing emphasis and Psychology minor.
Having a strong work ethic and leadership skills were embedded in me through sports. I excelled on the football field, which landed me the titles of Capital University's two-time Team Captain and All-Time Leading Rusher (2002- present). I also became the All-Time Leading Rusher for the Columbus Xtreme, a former minor league football team (2003-present).
My professional profile includes Assistant Leasing Manager with Triangle Real Estate, Store Management with The Kroger Co., and Product Marketing and Innovations Coordinator with Alliance Data, where I began as an Auto-Dial Collections Representative collecting over $1 million in my 1st year of employment. I also received the 2007 Alliance Data Star Award for excellent contributions to the business. In 2008, my "Dream Deferred" of moving to Florida became a reality. Living and working in Madeira Beach has provided me with local knowledge about waterfront property that could make a big difference in your buying or selling experience.
My greatest accomplishment is becoming the proud father of two beautiful children Samira and Rayshaun II. I also enjoy music production, sports, traveling, and performing motivational speeches.
