Gary Mann Ephrata: A True Story of Central Washington Real Estate Professionalism

Hello everyone. Jim Weitzel here. The “Old One” here in our office.

ephrataAs the “old one”, I would like to tell you the story of our past here at Gary Mann Ephrata.

In 1972 I was selling farms and land out of George, Quincy, Ephrata and Moses Lake while farming. Even sold some homes, businesses, and commercial. Kinda liked it! Got my Broker
license and started Preferred Farm Lands in 1982. Got a good sized office in 1986 and expanded, even went to a Coldwell Banker franchise. Meanwhile, in Moses Lake, two nice guys bought out an office in 1983 and started Gary Mann Real Estate; Gary Mann and Dan Eilers. Dan Adair went in with them. Well, the Old One and Dan Adair got close through us teaching real estate classes at Big Bend Community College. In 2000, my Ephrata Coldwell Banker office sold to Gary Mann Real estate and we became the local branch, with Jim as the office broker/manager/partner. Gary kindly started building new custom homes in Ephrata, Moses Lake, and anywhere we could sell in the area. So now we specialize in about everything, including lake lots, restaurants, large and small farms, commercial buildings. Sixty agents including Ephrata, Moses lake, and Team-Up office (virtual office). We are larger than the Coldwell Banker local office, Windermere, and the rest combined. Nine agents with over 130 years experience in our office at
