About Gavin McNeal

Originally from the small city of Newport, VT, Gavin moved to Fort Lauderdale in the fall of 1998 to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Animation.  Although it was never his intention to stay, it didn’t take him long to realize that Fort Lauderdale was the place to call home. After achieving his Bachelor’s Degree, he spent much of the 2000’s working for Visual FX and video game companies. He has contributed work to over 30 published video game titles which include Intellectual Property owned by Disney, ABC, WB, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Lucas Arts, and more. Gavin’s list of accomplishments also include the founding of Reel Ten Inc., a video game company in Fort Lauderdale that has three video games published to date, including two based on real estate. The combination of Gavin’s passion for computer graphics, business, real estate and South Florida resulted in the real estate video game Renovate & Relocate: Miami produced by Reel Ten Inc., and ultimately the realization of his goal to become a Fort Lauderdale Realtor. Gavin is an expert in the Fort Lauderdale area, bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate. With technologically savvy computer & graphics skills, Gavin designed and built to provide all the tools necessary for both buyers and sellers in the real estate market. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need a Fort Lauderdale Realtor you can trust for up-to-date information.

"If you're in the market for a new home, a "snowbird retreat" or maybe just a little "bungalow" to escape to, Gavin is the agent for you. His professionalism, efficiency and "down-to-earth" charm make him very easy to relate to. His strong work ethic drives him to excel and satisfy all his clients' expectations. His prompt response to our email landed him the job as our agent. With little time on our hands, Gavin quickly rounded up several possible showings and what shall we say "the rest is history". Today, with the expert help of Gavin, we are the proud owners of our own little "bungalow", a feat 3 years in the making. So, if you're thinking of exploring the housing market in the Fort Lauderdale area, give Gavin a try. Rest assured you'll be glad you did. We are. THANKS GAVIN!."

"When we needed to purchase our home, we went to Gavin at Living Las Olas. We had an excellent experience from beginning to end. Gavin was able to answer all the questions that we had. I would recommend Living Las Olas and Gavin to anyone buying or selling in the Fort Lauderdale area."
"We had our home on the market for a long time. Over a year later we met and listed with Gavin McNeal. We were finally able to sell our home at Parkland Golf & Country Club Estates just a few months later. Thank you!"

Questions For Real Estate Broker Gaving McNeal

On A Personal Note

What do you do when you’re not selling homes?

I have a long list of activities that I like to do when I have the free time. But most of the time you will find me on my mountain bike, either riding down Las Olas and along the beach or at various parks around the area that have mountain bike trails. It’s a lot of fun and is great exercise.

What is your favorite neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale?

As a Fort Lauderdale Realtor, this question is a touch one! First off, as long as I’m in Fort Lauderdale I’m happy. Second I prefer the East and that pretty much goes without saying. Who doesn’t want to be as close to the Ocean as possible. With that said, I would have to say Idlewyld in the Las olas Isles Neighborhood. It’s a smaller community and it really feels like a small town neighborhood when your walking, driving or biking through it. It would be a nice place to call home. Although, I think most people would say Harbor Beach or Rio Vista.

Are you a sports Fanatic?

I enjoy watching sports on occasion, but I wouldn’t call myself a fanatic. I watch the NFL sometimes and I do have a favorite team. I follow the NHL a lot more since I grew up playing hockey and try to watch as many of the playoff games as I can leading up to the Stanley Cup Final. Whenever possible, I also enjoy watching both the Summer and Winter X Games since I was a Motocross bike racer when I was young and of course, growing up in Vermont, I was riding snowmobiles in the winter.

What are your favorite NHL & NFL teams?

Who ever wants to know will have to ask me in person! As a Fort Lauderdale Realtor, it would be safe to say the Florida Panthers and Miami Dolphins!

Where is your favorite vacation destination?

I had always wanted to go to Italy and recently my girlfriend and I made that happen. I loved it there and wouldn’t hesitate to go back. The one thing I regret is not making it to Venice. Since I’m a Fort Lauderdale Realtor in the Venice of America, it seems appropriate to go there for a visit… A perfect excuse to go back!

What’s your favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale?

There are so many great restaurants around, so it’s hard to say. I would rate them on my overall experience, to include the food, service, décor and atmosphere. That said, I would have to admit that Café Europa, on Las Olas Blvd, is one of my favorites.
