Our Leaders

Brandy Gaiser-Bleiman
Brandy Gaiser-BleimanFounder
Brandy has been actively involved in the community and non-profit organizations for 15 years. Because of this experience, Giving Tree Realty, was founded in 2010 and is built upon a foundation of giving back. They donate to charity on each and every home sold through Giving Tree Realty. Together with her husband, Bruce L. Bleiman, they have discovered this approach is a sure-fire way to create a lasting impact and to become successful – in more than simply the profitability category – by building a legacy of compassion and charity. They created Giving Tree Charities and Toys for Our Troops, both 501(c) (3), to give back to the Charlotte and surrounding communities.

Brandy has been a full time real estate professional since 1997 and has a background in new construction, luxury homes, land sales, short sales, HUD homes and REO/Bank Foreclosures.

Bruce L. Bleiman
Bruce L. BleimanFounder
Bruce has a passion for non-profit organizations, community service and helping those less fortunate in need. He has a special interest in assisting our wounded heroes and has been involved in military charity work for close to two decades.

On a professional level, he has been in the real estate, building, development, and real estate investment industry for approximately four decades. With a variety of experience in new construction (commercial/residential) building, renovation, land development and design, he has completed projects that span over nine states and two outside countries. His firms have completed thousands of renovation projects and we have sold thousands of residential homes and he has sat on the boards of multiple businesses (for profit and non-profit) throughout the years. For Bruce, success is measured in many more ways than dollars and cents. He believes that the greatest legacy you can leave is what you have been able to do for others that are less fortunate.

It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
