Fred L. "Skipper" Garrett III

Realtor, Shaheen Ruth, Martin & Fonville Real Estate

About Skipper

Growing up, Skipper had a dream to work in his family’s business. Today, that dream has come true (sort of). Skipper owns his own business, Harborside Storage, a boat storage company, and is an active realtor with Long & Foster Real Estate in Essex County, Virginia. But as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, Skipper has found a place in a family business: the Primis family. 

He has previously served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Primis’ predecessor and has served as a director since 1982. As a local business owner and a successful realtor, Skipper brings to Primis a strong sense of changing economic and market conditions in the Company’s market areas. 

But what all of his experience has truly taught him is his life’s philosophy: “What goes around comes around.” When he’s not running one of his businesses or attending a board meeting, you may find Skipper at home enjoying his favorite rom-com, “Pretty Woman.”
