I was born and raised in Oxford County. As a life-long resident of the region, I understand the market and know the value of rural property – whether it’s a single-family home, hobby farm, commercial farming operation, or vacant land.
For me, real estate is not just about making a sale. It’s about finding people a property they love, and supporting them through the process of turning their dream into a reality. My work ethic was instilled from a young age. Growing up on the family greenhouse farm, The Floral Express, I helped out after school in the greenhouses, spent two years working at a hog farm, and took summer jobs in the construction industry.
As a teen, I sold fruits and vegetables at the farmers’ market, eventually handing over my stall to a younger brother so I could focus on building the family flower business. As Sales Manager and Director of Marketing for The Floral Express, it was my job to develop new markets. After visiting almost every flower shop in the Maritimes, I successfully built a strong market on Canada’s east coast, and The Floral Express is still proud to serve Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia as well as Ontario, Ohio and Michigan.
A few years ago, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a real estate agent. My brother took over the family greenhouse operation and I launched my new career. Today, I help people buy and sell residential, commercial, and agricultural properties throughout Oxford County, Brant County, Norfolk County and beyond.
With more than 17 years of experience in customer service, I love meeting new people and helping them find their dream property. I am committed to going above and beyond just making a sale, and work with a team of trusted professionals – lawyers, home inspectors, mortgage agents, accountants, builders and developers – to ensure that every purchase or sale runs smoothly from beginning to end.

Thank you Gary for your dedication and truly caring about us as clients! If you want your house SOLD call Gary Overbeek Go Platinum!"
Dave & Debra Phillips
We found our new home through Gary, and knowing we had to sell our home in less than a month we were nervous. But Gary made sure that our home was conditionally sold in less than 72 hours and above asking price! We could not have been happier with his service and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell! This is an honest, true-to-his word man that works extremely hard for his clients. His team is an absolute pleasure to work with as well."
Our sincerest thanks,
Tom, Lori, Tiana and Natasha Olchowecki
"I couldn’t have been more pleased. Gary sold my home for 100% of asking price, dealing with Gary really is a no brainer. He communicated very well with me and kept me informed regarding all showings and feedback. There’s just no other agent that even comes close. I would most definitely recommend Gary as a realtor as he was great!! If I ever needed another realtor he would be my first call."
"Working with Gary was stress free and easy. He explained everything we needed to know about buying our house, what location was good, and what the techniques were to buying. Before we bought and following the sale he was always there for us with any questions or concerns, right up to signing with the lawyer which was great as we were first time buyers. And not only did we get our house before it even went on the market, Gary let us use his moving trailer when we needed to move in. It's all a win win with Gary. Thanks again to Go Platinum"

"We used Gary for both listing our home and purchasing our new one. With his help both processes were made quick and easy, I would highly recommend him for all your future real estate needs."

"Gary and Marie were great throughout our entire experience working with them. As first time home buyers, we had sooo many questions which we felt free to ask at any time and we always received prompt and helpful answers. not knowing what we were getting ourselves into I'm glad we stumbled across Gary and his team, they fought for us and went way above and beyond the call of duty when we needed it most!"
