Gernie is a Palm Beach County native. He was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, and grew up in WPB when almost everything west of what is now I-95 was swamps and sandy pine forests.
He graduated from Forest Hill High School, Palm Beach Junior College, and The University of Florida. He then enrolled in Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta, Ga. where he received his degree as a Doctor of Dental Surgery. During the Vietnam War era, he served as a Dentist in the US Army Dental Corps. After completion of his Military Service, he returned to West Palm Beach, where he began his 47 year career as a Dentist specializing in Restorative Dentistry.
Gernie has been blessed with six great children and six beautiful grandchildren. He has resided in suburban Lake Worth and Wellington, Fl for most of his adult life. As a lifelong Floridian, he participated in numerous real estate transactions in Palm Beach County. He also enjoys playing golf and poker as hobbies.
After his retirement from dentistry, Gernie recognized that he wanted to be part of the rapidly growing business in Florida real estate.
He joined Weichert Realtors in 2019, and is available to help with both residential and condominium markets.
