Gary was introduced to the Hudson Valley in 1988 as a weekender from Manhattan. Captivated by its beauty and quality of life, he decided to live here full time within a year. His love for antique houses began with the renovation of a converted church in Tivoli. It was published in House Beautiful – Jan. 1994. Fueled by his own frustrating home buying experience, he decided to reinvent himself from musical theatre actor to Realtor. He got his real estate license in 1990 and opened his first office in the then undiscovered Village of Tivoli in 1993. Having grown to 5 offices with a commanding presence in the Hudson Valley, Gary DiMauro Real Estate partnered with Four Seasons Sotheby's International Realty in 2021. Gary and his wife Kathryn completed a 12 year renovation of their 1830’s farmhouse in Milan. It was published in Country Living magazine in April 2012 and Upstate House magazine in 2013.
