I am a Baltimore, MD resident who immigrated to the United States with my family from Kiev, Ukraine at a young age. We settled in Reisterstown, MD, where I attended Baltimore County schools, played varsity soccer at Franklin High School, and graduated from high school a year early. With an academic scholarship in hand, I pursued a degree in Business with a concentration in finance from Stevenson University (formerly Villa Julie College) in 2002.
As a motivated and hardworking individual with a passion for helping others, I began my career as a loan originator after college. I quickly rose through the ranks, holding managerial roles at companies like Community Mortgage Group and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage while maintaining my status as a top producer. Throughout my mortgage career, I funded over $500 million in mortgage volume.
In 2017, I transitioned to real estate, joining the #1 growing brokerage in the Baltimore Metro area at Keller Williams. Starting as an individual agent, I eventually became the team leader for the #1 team in our market, which consistently produced the most sales. In 2020, I founded my own team, the Gene Dru Property Group, which has since been ranked as the top producing team in our region and won several awards from local and national organizations.
Outside of work, I am a devoted family man with a beautiful wife, two kids, two dogs, and half a koi fish. I enjoy spending time with my family, tending to my garden, and watching my children experience the fruits of my labor.
