I am a seventh-generation lifelong resident of Ocean County, making me extremely familiar with the local area. I am a mommy to two young boys, as well as a loving wife to their daddy! Aside from practicing real estate, I have been a very active member in my community, serving with both the local volunteer fire department and volunteer first aid squad. I am also currently an active member of the New Jersey Forest Fire Service.
My name is Richard Gato, and I am a Realtor with PECORA Realtors. Perhaps you have seen my signs on local waterfront properties, or my advertising in the various real estate ads, magazines or trade journals as well as the local Beachcomber or Asbury Park Press. Although my primary business is here in Ocean County, I am a member of the Monmouth County and Middlesex County Multiple Listings Boards. In the past, my buyers have come from throughout the state and as far south as Florida, west to Michigan and north to Connecticut with rather large contingent from State Island.
I retired from the Fort Lee Police Department in 1994 and have been active in Real Estate ever since. I continue to be a Top Producer for Pecora Realtors and have the distinction of being a member of their, “Million Dollar Sales & Marketing Club,” and Monmouth/Ocean County “Circle of Excellence.”
