    After graduating cum laude, with a major in accounting and a minor in law, Mr. Gecht was recruited by one of the big six national accounting firms and practiced as a Certified Public Accountant for seven years.  In 1979 he became a full-time Real Estate Broker. He originally associated with a “traditional” national commercial real estate firm where he represented both landlords/sellers and tenants/buyers and was a continued recipient of the Salesperson of the Year awards.  Alan then spent five years as the Vice President in charge of leasing operations at a commercial real estate development company.  He gained tremendous insight into better understanding the real estate process from the landlords’ perspective and through this experience recognized the need for tenants/buyers to have professional and competent representation.  In 1990 Alan committed to and has practiced with this philosophy in mind: successfully protecting and representing only commercial tenants/buyers both locally and nationally.  His diverse real estate related knowledge, coupled with his financial background, brings distinct capabilities to the table; ultimately proving beneficial during the entire negotiation process. Mr. Gecht has been actively involved in both Toastmasters International and ProVisors since 1993.  He is known as “The Office Leasing Doctor” and has shared his craft many times as a lecturer, panelist and radio show guest.  Alan is also committed to and actively participates in the business and civic community.
