As a fierce advocate for his clients, colleagues and the LGBT community, Dave Gervase is constantly working toward a goal.

“We are working for a world without housing discrimination,” said Gervase, 2023 Past President and Chairman of the Board of the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance. “That’s our big audacious goal.” 

Leveraging his multiple board of directors positions, Gervase is pushing for national and state real estate groups to endorse political candidates who support diversity, equity and inclusion programs as well as private property rights. The 54-year-old said he will not rest until the Equality Act becomes law.  

“It’s not only time, it’s good for business,” he said. 

Gervase also serves on the board of directors for the LGBT Housing Initiative, an upstart organization with a mission of building LGBT home ownership rates while getting at-risk queer youth off the streets.  

A Keller Williams agent since 2006, Gervase’s Reside Oceanside team was No. 1 in sales volume and units sold in the Fort Lauderdale Market Center in 2020 and third in 2021 and 2022.  

A native of Ohio, Gervase moved to Florida in 1994, where he met his husband of 26 years, CBS News’ Ted Scouten. The couple call Hollywood home.
