Gail has been working with Properties of The Villages since 2016.  A native of Florida, Gail was born and raised in Miami and attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree with emphasis in Real Estate appraising.  Coming from a long lineage of real estate, it’s in “the blood”, and was the likely career area choice for her.

Gail’s career has included owning and managing, Akin Realty, which specialized in new home sales, working just out of college as a real estate appraiser, and several years in general real estate.  Having been married to a real estate broker, and raising three children, Gail’s career transferred into higher education and workforce training.  She earned her Masters Degree in Business Management later in life, which supported her higher education goals. She has been recognized as a top producer for Maronda Homes, and earned several awards for excellence in the Community College setting.

Gail raised her family in Ocala, FL, and has watched The Villages come from a small manufactured home park to the exemplary community it is today.  Gail’s uncle, a longtime resident of Tavares, FL, used to sell manufactured homes to Mr. Schwartz many years ago!  The phenomenal growth, and now the privilege to be an integral part of The Villages, is considered a major blessing in Gail’s life.   

Being awarded the “Rookie of the Year” award in her first year was a goal that Gail set, and obtained.  Also on her bucket list was to leave a “permanent legacy” in Central Florida for her children and grandchildren.  In 2017, she was awarded the honor of earning a street named for her “Akin Way”, which will be in the upcoming Village of Chitty Chatty, which was the achievement of this goal!

“The honor and privilege of assisting the amazing residents and friends of The Villages realize their retirement or investment dreams is cherished.  I dedicate myself to excellence, service and building a trust with my customers that they know I will help them with any need, and am here for them for years to come.   The Villages is the friendliest hometown in America, and I make sure my customers feel that!  This is my lifelong dream come true job!”
