H. Stephen Gross
Stephen worked with us between 2004 and 2006, at which time he earned his real estate license, and rejoined the team in 2014. With his outgoing personality, professionalism, and commitment to his clients, Stephen is already a rising star in real estate. Before rejoining the team, he spent almost a decade abroad, where he accumulated a wealth of experience that serves his clients well. In London, he did research consultancy for Private Bankers and Wealth Managers. Before that, he was based in Prague but spent his time doing business development in over 40 countries for Project Syndicate, a provider of economic and political commentary.
In addition to working as a Sales Agent with the Gross Realty Group and helping to grow the Group's business, Stephen has also earned a Graduate Certificate in Real Estate Finance and Investment (MSRE) from New York University's renowned Schack Institute, the nation's leading real estate finance program.
Stephen is passionate about real estate, economics and politics and thus spends a lot of his (limited) free time reading and researching these areas. An avid athlete, he does a variety of sports depending on the season; foxhunting, climbing, biking and running ultra-marathons. Stephen lives in the Unionville countryside with his wife and son.
With his high energy and ability to find a solution for every problem Stewart is excited to bring his enthusiasm and optimism to Chester County. Most recently, Stewart worked as a Real Estate Agent with the largest independently owned full-service real estate company in Boulder County, Wright Kingdom Real Estate located in sunny Colorado.

Previously, Stewart spent seven years living, playing, and showing his dedication to Crested Butte Mountain Resort as a department manager in Crested Butte, Colorado. He put his exceptional service-mindedness to work while managing the mountain resort’s lodging properties, hotels, staff, and guests. His keen sense for guest satisfaction positioned him to work on special services to attend to VIP guests like celebrities and politicians who vacationed at the resort.
Obtaining a business management degree from Gettysburg College helped to set the stage for an exciting future in Real Estate.
As a professional mountain biker, Stewart knows all about persistence, discipline and hard work; all traits that are advantageous in the real estate business. While competing in a 100-mile mountain bike race in his native Pennsylvania in 2015, he observed the family working collaboratively. He decided to move back to join the family business together with his wife Stacey, a nutritionist. Currently, he is sponsored by Bike Line in West Chester, PA and Griggs Orthopedics in Crested Butte, CO. When not working with real estate, Stewart can be found on his bike, exploring the trails and roads between the Schuylkill and Susquehanna.
Herb came to real estate after a forty year career in the information technology field. It included working 9 years for a real estate investment company with over 250 properties from Pennsylvania to Florida. Subsequently he worked for a major food processing and distribution corporation for 23 years. As the IT member of their international business startup team, he worked in 9 countries throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America.
Herb's love for Chester County began in 1968 when he purchased an 1862 farmhouse in Westtown Township. After restoring it and raising a family there, he and his wife purchased and restored a circa 1860 townhouse in the Borough of West Chester where he lives today. He has been a volunteer for Chester County Day and served as one of its committee chairpersons since 2000.
