About Us

MilitaryByOwner Advertising, Inc. Company Info

MilitaryByOwner Advertising was founded in January 2000 by Dave and Sharon Gran.  

The website provides advertising for homes located near military bases as well as resources related to real estate, homeownership, and military life. MilitaryByOwner.com has become the "go to" site for military families finding, selling, or renting homes near military bases.

Dave proudly served in the Marine Corps and retired after 21 years. Early on, Sharon was in the education field as a math/software consultant, then later worked in the real estate field. Dave and Sharon combined their passion for supporting military families through PCS moves with their knowledge of real estate and the emergence of the web. They have four children, four grandchildren, and when time allows they enjoy relaxing on the water in their trawler.

The company is located in Stafford, Virginia just outside Quantico Marine Corps Base,  about 35 miles south of Washington, D.C.
