WELCOME GARY SCHAEFFER


Gary is a market maker.  With a deep background in stocks and securities, he is skilled in reading the product and finding the consumer.  As a seat holder and former member of the New York Stock Exchange, and as a board member for The Securities Industry Automated Corporation, Gary led the team to a switch in fiber optics technology to automate the NYSE and supporting networks.  As the chairman of the NYSE Educational Committee, Gary was in demand as a senior Speaker for business school graduates.  He took this skill further when called upon to act as a NYSE Floor Official to adjudicate member disputes and trading floor activities.  

Equally at home on both sides of the Hudson River, Gary recently moved to northern Bergen County.  He calls Upper Saddle River, New Jersey home.  “I was attracted to the strong schools, beautiful surroundings, acres of parkland and trails, and the proximity to every amenity imaginable. Whether dining, hiking, networking…it is all here.”  

Proud of his roots, Gary was raised in Brooklyn and out on Long Island, before moving into New York City. “ I am a proud alumni of the University of Michigan and never miss a game!” 

Attracted to the stellar reputation of Terrie O’Connor Realtors with over 30 years of local expertise in the real estate industry, Gary found the relationship with Luxury Portfolio International and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World provided the strongest marketing with a reach to real estate professionals across 70 countries.  “It is not enough to market the property, one must understand the consumer- their needs, wants and desires. We pride ourselves on understanding the consumer first and then find the property.” 

Market maker. Skilled negotiator. Educator.  Gary is all of these.  Let Gary put his business skills to work for you in your next real estate transaction.  When buying, selling and investing, reach out to Gary first for the information you need to make the best decision.  

You can reach Gary Schaeffer at the TOCR Saddle River office by phone 201-934-4900 or via email at garys@tocr.com.  Call or text him on his cell at  908-202-1166.
