As a licensed broker for The Turner Team, Ray Gardner has built a reputation as someone who always goes that extra mile for clients interested in Oregon and Washington real estate. Often described as “young and hungry,” he’s equally comfortable working with first timers as he is with investors alike. Ray enjoys bringing a sense of calm to the often-tumultuous real estate ride by guiding customers through every step of the process, clearly communicating next-steps and staying the course through bumps in the road—all to ultimately facilitate winning transactions! Ray is hardworking, professional and honest with demonstrated skills in property marketing, staging/showing and strong negotiation.
Ray was born in Chicago and raised in Newberg, Oregon. So, he’s quite familiar with what makes this area of the country so special. He attended college in the Bay Area and Los Angeles before becoming a head basketball coach at just 22 years old. Always involved in sports, Ray draws on his experiences as a coach when the need to stay positive arises in both his personal and professional life. He also spent time working as an umpire. Ray completed the Reach the Beach bike race and enjoys softball and camping.
