About Us

Born and raised in North Carolina and a graduate of East Carolina University, Gloria began her real estate career in residential real estate acquisitions. Having over 25 years experience as a business owner and negotiator she has been an entrepreneur since the age of 26 at which time she started her first business and started investing in real estate. With a degree in Physical Therapy and a drive to succeed in whatever she goes out to accomplish, Gloria independently started a Physical Therapy private practice only five years after graduating from college and developed it into a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation agency, Matthews Rehabilitation Services, Inc. That business offered Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language Pathology services at a time in which she was the only female in business in the medical field in her home town of Rocky Mount. She owned and operated this business for 21 years and sold it to a national company. In 1999 she moved to Pinehurst and married her husband, Ed.

As a result of her desire to assist other people in real estate acquisitions and sales she obtained her North Carolina Real Estate License in 2004 and started Gunther Properties, Inc. Being a real estate investor herself for years means Gloria brings a wealth of personal knowledge and experience to the table. Her dedication and commitment is reflected in the services she offers both Buyers and Sellers in residential, land and commercial real estate sales.

Gloria is a member of the Pinehurst Southern Pines Area Association of Realtors and the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors. Designations & further education include the GRI (Graduate Real Estate Institute) and ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative). With the GRI designation she is in a select group of N.C. real estate professionals with nationally just 19% of Realtors having finished the course. The ABR designation is the benchmark of excellence in Buyer representation. It is awarded by the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC), an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.

Having completed The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing course Gloria is trained and experienced in marketing high-end homes and estates. In networking with other agents and contacts around the country she has developed many resources of finding Buyers. Both Buyers and Sellers of luxury properties greatly benefit from her abundance of knowledge.
