Read what people are saying about Gail.... 

There were two phrases that came up often during the search for our new home.
They were: "It's my pleasure", and  "not a problem".  Many people may use these phrases,
but Gail really means them when she says them!! We could not have made the move to
Orlando without the outstanding assistance that Gail provided for our family. She has been
an immeasurable blessing to us.  Her professionalism and knowledge were outstanding, yet
we felt like we were out looking around town with a long-time friend.  She has earned our
lifetime respect and business. Glen and Lauren Vander zalm

We had mixed emotions about selling our home. We not only found Gail Higley to be very knowledgeable, professional and responsive, but sensitive and accommodating.  She set us up for success by explaining what to expect and providing expert advice which made the transaction as painless as possible.  She was definitely our "friend on the inside."  Gail has our utmost respect and unequivocal recommendation.  Rio and Sherri Nelson, Orlando, Florida

We've known Gail since 1998 and used her to both sell and buy new homes.  In between we
moved out of state and even called her again when we moved back to Florida.  Why?  Trust! 
There's no better reason to enlist Gail's expertise than you can trust her to help you with some of the biggest decisions of your life.  Her guidance, experience and knowledge make her assistance invaluable.  I'm confident in saying that she has always had my family's best interests at heart!   I've referred her to many family and friends whose experiences mirror mine.  Gail has not only assisted us in finding the place we call home but also in making excellent real estate investments!  
Lisa Riccardi, Orlando, Florida   

When Susan and I thought we would give up looking for a house, along came Gail.  Immediately after meeting Gail we knew that if anyone could fulfill our needs, it was her.  Gail listens to the needs of her clients.  It isn't what Gail wants, it's what you want.  Her work ethics are impeccable and her experience in the Real Estate Market is invaluable.  She is always there when you need her. Gail never misses an appointment and she was with us to the end.  Gail has become a great friend and never forgets us.  We would highly recommend Gail to everyone!  Burton and Susan DeWitt, Ocoee, Florida

We were relocating from another state and needed someone we could rely on, and Gail came highly recommended by a friend. Boy, were they right.   From the very first phone conversation to this day, Gail has been fantastic. I called her office out of the blue one day and she took the time to ask me many questions about our wants and needs and made me immediately feel comfortable. She included my 12 year old daughter's feelings and even got to know our family dog, Hunter. She met with us on several occasions (even playing taxi service to and from the airport) and made sure that we got the house that we wanted. She was honest, fair and open with us and we trusted her completely. We knew that she was in this to find us a great home that we would be happy in and for no other reason. We closed on our home 7 months ago and still we receive helpful information and little notes long after her "official" job was done. I would not hesitate to use Gail in any future real estate dealings and highly recommend her services.  Diana Gebhardt, Orlando, Florida

Gail Higley is simply as good as it gets in the real estate business.  Not only does she provide top notch service, she seperates herself from the rest of the pack in the intangibles.  After sitting down for ten minutes with her I felt like I had known her forever.  Right from the start I could tell that she would do whatever it takes to make sure she found the right home for me.  There was not a single moment where I felt pressured into making any decisions.  She was always right by my side every step of the way.  This was very important to me as she helped me purchase my first home.  In addition, Gail made herself available to answer any questions and or to drive out to the other side of Orlando to make sure a prospect house was "good enough for me."  I truly believe she makes you feel like you are royalty whether you are looking to buy a $90,000 home or a $3 million home.  Gail Higley is my realator for life.  Thank you Gail!  You are truly amazing!  Jason Skinner, Orlando, Florida

We purchased our home with the wonderful help of Gail.  She was so professional, but most of all, she had the best interest of our family the whole time.  It has been 6 years since we purchased our home and she never misses a time to drop a note and even delivers flowers.  She truly cares and has a deep passion for what she does.....Gail, you're the best!  Chris Bernatavitz, Ocoee, Florida

To us there is no better real estate agent in central Florida than Gail. Gail's expertise in the market enabled us to find the perfect house. It took time but Gail always looked after our best interest in not only showing us properties that met our requirements, but advised us on any offers we made.  It was always about our needs and not pushing a property on us that did not meet our needs. She was always there for questions, re-negotiations and home inspections. Without Gail I do not think we would have found and purchased our "perfect house".
We have recommended Gail to everyone we know and she has provided the same service, to our referrals, that she provided to us. Gail will definitly be our agent when we decide to purchase our next house.  Michael Thompson, Orlando, Florida
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were skeptical about working with a realtor. However, when we realized how complicated the process can be, we were relieved to have someone as thorough and knowledgeable as Gail to guide us.  She took the time to learn about our lifestyle and tastes and searched the neighborhoods that fit our budgets and geographic needs.  I'll never forget the day we found our new house.  As we left Gail's office she enthusiastically announced "We're going to find you a house today"!  Sure enough, after looking at 4 houses, we were racing back to the office to put a bid on our favorite.  Gail then helped us through every step from inspections, to paperwork deadlines, to the final signing. She even came over to pose for a photo of our new home!  We continue to enjoy Gails monthly newsletters and highly recommend her to anyone searching for a new home. Gail is friendly, intelligent, detail oriented, and always treats her clients as she would treat members of her own family.  I am proud to call Gail Higley my realtor and my friend.  Christie Hale, Ocoee, Florida

A few years ago my wife and I decided to look for our dream home. We have been married for over 30 years, the kids are grown, and we decided that it was time to upscale.  It was time for our “Dream Home.”  Unfortunately, we weren't sure what we really wanted. We went looking on our own almost every weekend, we searched the internet, we looked at new homes and old homes, and finally contacted Gail Higley to help us in our endeavor. Together, we spent nearly nine months looking at re-sales but were unable to find exactly what we wanted. As my wife put it, “I’ll know it when it jumps out at me.” Gail was so patient with us throughout the search. We eventually decided to build and Gail helped out immensely. We now have our 4800 square foot dream house and Gail guided us through the purchase from start to finish.


After closing on our new home we contracted with Gail to sell our old home. Gail secured a contract in less than a week and we closed without a hitch in just three weeks!  Thanks Gail.

Bruce and Elaine Smith, Orlando, Florida


Gail was extremely helpful with the purchase of our new home two years ago. She was with us every step of the way as we had our new home built. She inspected our house on a regular basis as it was being constructed and kept in contact with our builder. She really looked out for the best interest of our entire family. We would highly recommend Gail to anyone searching for their perfect house. 
Peter and Cindy Cook, Winter Garden, Florida
I have known Gail since 1978.  Gail has always been driven to serve others. She works very hard to make sure everything is just the way you like. As a young child, my mother worked in a real estate office and eventually became a realtor. As I recall, she didn't last very long because it was very demanding work that took alot of time to cultivate and work properly.  Gail definitely makes it work!
I bought my first home on my own 2 years ago as a single mother with 2 children. I was very nervous about what the future held for me, but Gail was there to make sure the deal went smoothly.  I had no concerns that she would take excellent care of me when it came time to do the final walk-through and then sign on the dotted line. Thank you, Gail. Many blessings to you, Rick and the kids!  
Sandy Cawn, Sorrento Florida
Gail is simply the best real estate agent there is. She is very patient, responsible, and understands that finding the right home can take some time. Gail kept us well informed and gladly answered any questions or concerns we had, in a professional manner. We are very satisfied and extremely happy with our home. We highly recommend Gail to those looking for an agent you can depend on and trust.  Roger and Alicia Concepcion, Orlando, Florida
As a first time homebuyers, we had no idea how to begin.  Fortunately, we met Gail.  I honestly don't think we would have ever found a home without her.  Gail showed us every house in our price range on both the east and west side, and was extremely patient as we struggled with the decision making process.
Gail was extremely pleasant and enjoyable to spend time with.  She definitely became a friend to us, and made the process much easier.  Gail had great advice and knew an incredible amount about the areas we looked in.  Normally a very stressful time, the negotiating and closing process was effortless, and we moved into our fabulous new home with no problems.  I would recommend Gail to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home!  Chelsey Croskeys and Miguel Garcia, Ocoee, Florida

Gail was amazing. She had several places for us to look at and if we didn't like them she had more to show us. She was great fun too, had a blast looking at different places and she gave her thoughts as to what would need to be done before moving in. And if we didn't like it we didn't spend a lot of time on it just moved onto the next one. She made the whole process fun and kept us up to date on what was expected of us and what we could ask for in return.  I will definitely be going back to her when and if we get ready to sell and buy again!

Invaluable resource!
I live in Orlando, but own a rental property in Atlanta. Gail was able to connect me with someone in the Atlanta market who knows the ins/outs of the neighborhood surrounding my property. She connected me and advised me on how to proceed, whether to sell or continue to rent. I am well informed and have a clear plan of action.  Neither Gail or her colleague in Atlanta profited from the work they put in for me. There is no question in mind about who to work with in the future. I highly recommend contacting her first if you have ANY real estate need. Amy G.

Gail represented us through a new home build process in Laureate Park and we are very happy. Her knowledge, experience, professional demeanor, and availability gave us insights and confidence that we wouldn't have had if we went through the process on our own. Throughout the 10-month building process, she would frequently check in with us and even stopped by the build site to evaluate the progress. Additionally, her vendor recommendations were all top-quality professionals. If we buy another home in the Orlando-area, we're definitely using Gail again.

Our experience with Gail was absolutely amazing!  We were relocating from Washington DC so most of our initial contact was via email.  She was incredibly responsive and helped us narrow down our early search results.  When we were finally able to make the trip down to actually look at homes she had a day FULL of listings for us as time was obviously a factor.  She had a good mix of older and new construction homes.  We ended up going with a pre-spec new build.  We thought we were in for a pretty simple new home purchase given the fact it was brand new and already spec'ed, but we were so wrong.  The split second things with the builder didn't seem right, Gail jumped into action.  The amount of things she took care of and times I had to realize that, I didn't know what I didn't know, was astounding.  I don't even want to know how much more time and money I would have wasted if Gail hadn't been there. I absolutely recommend having Gail in your corner no matter how straight forward you think the process may be.  Jesus V. 

Gail was very helpful with suggestion during the purchase of our new construction home.  She provided us with advise with add-ins that would increase the value of our home and those that could wait once we were in our home.  She found more stuff during our final walk through than we did which was great because we really didn't know what was normal and what would need repair. Thanks Gail for your help through the process of purchasing our first home!  Erika J. 

We were fortunate enough to use Gail for both purchasing a home and then selling the same home 5 years later.  Not only is she very professional but she was also very caring about our daughters safety and making sure she was in a nice and safe neighborhood.  When it came time to see the home, it was sold in less than 24 hours.  YOU ROCK GAIL!!!!!  She felt more like a guiding light for our daughter and was even able to recommend an insurance agent for her (since she moved into Orlando from out of state) as well as a physician.  Look no further.....Gail is who you want!!!  Shari G.
