Mr. Cole's appraising and consulting experience centered around various types of income-producing properties including office buildings, apartments, shopping centers, free-standing retail, mixed use developments, as well as a variety of residential properties including single and multi-family, condominiums, and subdivision developments. His primary region of experience is the Southeastern United States, but has also included several other states.

Mr. Cole passed away on September 26, 2014 at the age of 65, following a long battle with cancer. Through his years with the disease, he led both a personal and public fight against cancer, staying at the forefront of the latest in research and treatments, and raising awareness and advocating for early screenings. He always maintained a positive and humorous attitude, infectious to all around him, and he was always eager and willing to give of his time and knowledge when it came to helping others with their diagnosis and battle with cancer. He was also a founding member of the Triad chapter of Golfers Against Cancer. Gordon will be forever missed by his friends and family here at JMA.
