Gail DeMarco, "Death, Divorce, Downsizing", Broker Associate at Turner DeMarco powered by eXp Realty, shares her story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #216
Gail DeMarco is one of the top agents in the state of California. She came into the business after having a motorcycle accident which did not allow her to pursue her profession at the time of a highly sought-after commercial and wedding photographer. However, when she first came into the business, she realized her skill set of seeing things others missed made her incredibly successful. She has become a great friend, and she shares incredible wisdom in this episode.

Empathy. Experience. Connectedness. Commitment: Gail's clients know that her greatest strengths lead to their windfall during real estate decision-making. A #1 ranked agent in El Dorado County with roots in the Bay Area, Gail is known for her creative solutions to real estate's puzzles.
It’s one thing to be awed by Gail’s marketing and negotiating skills or by her suite of pre-listing services that result in shorter market times and higher sale prices. At least as meaningful is Gail’s deep grasp of what drives real estate success in El Dorado County.
Having begun her luxury real estate career in the Bay Area’s Palo Alto before relocating to El Dorado Hills in 2015, Gail understands, firsthand, the particular factors motivating buyers in El Dorado County.
And when she partnered with Val Turner in 2018, Gail and the entire market quickly realized how the team’s combined expertise puts each of their clients in a position of strength. Through the partnership, the team gained Val’s marketing communications expertise and her knowledge of working with investors.
When people speak with Gail’s clients and meet her industry partners, they are reminded how important it is to work with an experienced, connected agent who thoroughly understands the nuances of the local market.
Gail’s consistently high rankings indicate far more than her production volume. Being the #1 team in El Dorado County, with Gail as #1 ReMax agent in the region, reflects the fact that Gail is consistently embedded in the market. She has developed and earned the respect of industry partners and tradespeople who know that her expertise, efficiency, connections, and service-minded approach translate into results. And she shares her network and knowledge with the clients she represents.
When you start working with Gail, she will be in touch regularly, often answering questions before you think of them. She gives you the reasons for every suggestion she makes and devotes herself to ensuring that everyone always knows where things stand. There are no surprises on timeline or on what to expect in the days and weeks to come.
In addition, each member of The Turner-DeMarco team not only has their clients’ backs, but they support one another in exceeding every client’s needs and expectations. That means that, when working with Gail, you have access not only to her knowledge, expertise and connections, but to the resources and knowledge of her entire team.
It means that, when something comes up, you’ll receive immediate feedback and sound choices about how to address the decision-making process.
And it means that, when you’re ready to move to the next chapter in your story, Gail is ready to listen, learn and exceed your needs.
