As an attorney who initially planned to practice international law in Washington, D.C. , Garrett worked for a judge in the nation’s capital before realizing that Pennsylvania’s capital had all he really wanted. In 2001, Garrett opted for a change of pace and place when he and his wife Jola, who Garrett met while working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Poland, had their first child. They returned to the midstate in 2001, with Garrett securing a post at the prestigious law firm of McNees Wallace and Nurick in downtown Harrisburg.
Seeing the contagious enthusiasm with which his father and brother approached real estate , Garrett decided to join RSR, REALTORS in 2003. He soon ranked as one of Central PA’s top producers year in and year out. Garrett became the broker of record at RSR, REALTORS in 2012, overseeing the activity of 35 agents, a complement that he hopes to someday expand to 100.
Beside his intellect and training in the law, Garrett believes the secret to his success is his desire to build enduring and meaningful relationships, treating people well, and being open to unforeseen challenges and opportunities every day. Averaging about 100 transactions a year, 80 percent of which are residential, Garrett works hard on the relationships he has built with the area’s finest builders, representing them on many popular projects.
A graduate of Penn State University Catholic University Law School in Washington, D.C., Garrett also plays bass guitar in a rock band called Very Americans, and his clients are often in the audience, cheering him on.
Garrett and his wife, Jola, a native of Poland, are the proud parents of three: oldest child, Sofia, is 10; son Teddy is 8; and Cece is 2. As one of the owners of the company and a committed family man, Garrett hopes to someday sell homes to his clients’ children and grandchildren
