Auburn, Kent, Covington, Renton, & Maple Valley are my personal stomping grounds. I live, work, play, & spend money here! SE King & North Pierce County Realtor(r) for Buyers, Sellers & Short Sales
I'm a Seattle native, have always lived the south Puget Sound area, and have moved around quite a bit within the region. As the mom of three grown (well, almost -- one is still at home) children, grandma to four incredible grandchildren, along with several four-legged critters and now a whole flock of chickens, I wanted to remain in this area and ground my children with the best of schools and the friendly warmth of the Pacfic Northwest.
Over the years, my husband and I have been heavily involved in Little League baseball, both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and just tons of school activities. And we're now the proud parents of two energetic golden retrievers, Hobbs & Bailey.
By the way, I believe heavily in giving back to the community in which I live, especially where children are concerned. A portion of every single transaction, whether a sale or a listing, is donated to the Children's Miracle Network. In this area, that means that this money goes directly to Children's Hospital.
Prior to real estate, I had a diverse, technical ... and art ... background. From managing law firms, to owning and operating the very first computer training company in the Pacific Northwest, to publishing "how-to" computer books and art materials, I've managed to accumulate quite a variety of skills that all lend themselves perfectly to both the big picture and detailed versions of working through a real estate transaction.
I absolutely love working with both buyers and sellers, and I've applied my technical skills to assisting clients -- whether individual homeowners, developers or builders -- prepare and market their homes too.
You deserve the very best representation when buying or selling a home. You're making huge money commitments -- and you deserve to work with an agent that takes your trust seriously. I promise to always do my very best to listen to you, communicate with you, effectively and skillfully guide you through your transaction, and negotiate on your behalf.
You absolutely deserve the best. I'm committed to standing up to your trust.
Areas of Expertise
In addition to knowledge and experience, today's complex market requires agents that have tenacity, empathy, and true desire to be of help. Working with folks that are in financial stress is challenging! Helping homeowners through the complexities of short sales and preforeclosures ... or just helping them retain as much of their equity during a sale ... is intensely satisfying and I look forward to helping you and your referral clients through the process.
There's a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience needed on the Buyer side of real estate, too! After all, getting all the way through the closing table is also challenging right now. And there's just nothing like sharing the excitement of first time homebuyers!
NAR Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Certified, Seller Representative Specialist, GRI
Voted Five Star Professional (2011, 2012) "Best Real Estate Agent in Auburn" by KOMO News and Auburn Reporter 2010.
"Thank you (and your son) for all your help and hard work. I will highly recommend you to anybody I meet who needs an agent. You were a pleasure and a gift to work with, making this whole stupid process so much easier. I wish you all the luck in your business, although I don't think you will need it with the wonderful customer service you supply. Thanks for everything," Denise Pedro, Covington & Seattle
"Working with Gabrielle on developing her new website, it was immediately impressed upon me how invaluable her clients find her. She has a talent for working out the trickiest of details in challenging transactions, ensuring her clients achieve a successful end when purchasing or selling their homes." Jennifer Juhasz, Owner, Virtual Staffing Team
"Gabrielle jumped in to help me purchase a home when I was relocating from out-of-state. I had been working with another realtor, who hadn't been able to hit the mark, but within one session with Gabrielle, we saw several homes that met our criteria. She was efficient and knowledgeable and was able to expedite our close and eliminate the need for intermediate housing. I would recommend her to anyone!" Beth Galliher, Edgewood
Tera & Nick, Bellevue, WA
"Her professionalism in all she does reaching out to the community is excelled only by her knowledge of buying and selling homes. If you want the best service in buying or selling, Gabrielle should be your agent." Ron Copple, RHU, LUTCF, Copple Insurance, Auburn
"Gabrielle, worked with my wife and me both in buying our new home and selling our existing house. She knows what she is talking about and was always there for us to answer our many questions. She made a stressful situation much easier. I tried several other agents prior to meeting Gabrielle and the experience was miserable. I can't think of anyone whom I would give a higher recommendation to."
--Dave Rackleff, Auburn
"We have worked with Gabrielle both on buy and sell sides of the business, and consider her a valued friend as well as a trusted service provider. She partners with her clients, and maintains that partnership far beyond the service one expects from a good realtor. I would recommend her to anyone needing any service or advice in the field; if your need is not in her toolbox, she'll find you an expert you can trust who can and will meet the need."
"Gabrielle is an excellent professional. Our business relationship lasted for quite a few months. She has excellent realtor skills combined with no less excellent customer relationship ones. She was very attentive and understanding to our needs and managed always to provide us with a plethora of real estate choices.
But our greatest appreciation ... occurred when we had to deal with a problematic seller. Gabrielle proved herselve to stand behind her client needs to the last point. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and encouraging. We managed to finalize the purchase, in my opinion, mostly due to her professional assistance.
Even after the purchase was finalized. Gabrielle continued to help us out with necessary tips and information. This came very handy as we moved to Washington from Tennessee.
We are very satisfied with Gabrielle Nemes, both professionally and personally. I shall definitely recommend her services at the first opportunity and for years to come."
