Holly Bender

Realtor®, Listing Agent for Betsy Pepine



I have spent 35 years in the Hotel and Hospitality industry! I have moved throughout the northeast with my daughter; each time relocating to a new school district, most moves selling and buying a home. I understand (and empathize) with the seller and the buyer, because you’re not just selling or buying a house, you’re leaving or making a home.

However, making a place home is as much about finding the right house, as it is about getting involved and connecting with the community. In Gainesville, I am a member of the Gainesville Rotary Club, a Board Member for the Gainesville Fisher House, and an Advisory Council Member with the Ronald McDonald House. I volunteer my time with many of the charities in town.

When I am not helping clients with their real estate needs, you can find me enjoying the sun golfing or gardening. Additionally, I love cooking and travel. Even better when I get to fit in a cooking class and wine tasting while traveling.

My husband Mark, works for Philips, my daughter Hayley, works and lives in New York City. I am pleased to join my friend, Betsy Pepine at Pepine Realty. Real Estate allows me to use my skills to support you as you sell or buy your next home. I look forward to working with you and to helping you with your real estate needs!
