The gathering will feature Jim McIngvale, owner of Gallery Furniture, as its keynote speaker.  Mr. McIngvale made national headlines for transforming his furniture stores into shelters after Hurricane Harvey for fellow Houstonians.  “Through his selfless act, Jim showed the world the meaning of paying it forward and taking care of each other during and after the storm,” said event organizer, Roger Thaxton.

Mark Woodroof, partner of Gary Greene, will address attendees on the short- and possible long-term impact of Harvey from a residential real estate perspective, providing insight for those whose homes were impacted by the storm as well as those looking to buy or sell a home in the coming year.

“The Harvey Financial Recovery Boot Camp is designed to help those impacted by the hurricane take a few deep breathes, and gain access to valuable resources to help them now,” Mark Woodroof said. “The recovery process is not a sprint, so don’t make sudden decisions for you and others, it’s a marathon and our hope is this boot camp will help people make the right decisions for their future.”

Several agents from Gary Greene’s 23 Houston-area sales offices will be on hand to answer real estate questions.  Also participating in the boot camp will be Gibraltar Insurance Services.
