“Gabriel possesses a wealth of local and global experience in the real estate arena. Originally with an international tech company, he left to become a relocation specialist, serving corporate transferees, moving from across the globe, to New York City, Connecticut, Long Island, and most often, Westchester County. He had the ability to zero in on a transferee’s ideal home, based on phone conversations and emails, leading to his high level of success, and earning the trust of companies and clients. Naturally fluent in English and Spanish, his international and operational exposure led him to seek an industry that was more tangible. He could not find a better fit than as a Real Estate Professional, utilizing his ability to analyze and empathize with clients and their needs. Gabriel places high value on finding a client the right community, the right home, and at times, the right paint color or style of furniture.
Gabriel was born in Manhattan and grew up in Northern Westchester. These urban and natural environments had a complementary imprint on him. “While growing up, I worked alongside my father, an architect, who inspired me with a keen eye for interior design and the arts. My insight on cost effective practices, relationship building and community involvement stemmed from my mother’s work as a self-made entrepreneur, her active practices of working in good faith and being mindful of subtleties.”
Gabriel’s wide range of skill sets from past experiences have translated well into his real estate career. Additionally, he remains current in the latest technology and marketing techniques, an asset to a client selling a home. This winning combination has maximized Gabriel’s success as a Real Estate Professional, and enabled him to assist his clients find, buy, sell, maintain, and optimize the value of their homes and buildings.
