President and principal broker of Blowing Rock Properties, Inc., Gail is a native North Carolinian who grew up in Rutherfordton, NC arriving in Blowing Rock in 1970. She attended Wake Forest University and graduated magna cum laude from Appalachian State with her degree in psychology.
After several years working as a counselor with Vocational Rehabilitation, Gail sold her worldly goods and headed out for a 6 year adventure sailing the Bahamas and the Caribbean in an old but seaworthy Zeeland yawl. It was during this time that she had her first “sales” position – working as a top producing sales agent for a local tour operator in St. Thomas. Returning to Blowing Rock in 1986, she entered the real estate field and, in 1991, opened Blowing Rock Properties.
Gail’s interests include travel, nature and conservation efforts, green building, dogs, ACC basketball, hiking, collecting pottery and keeping up with her 82 year old mother’s busy schedule. Her daughter, Kimberly, lives and works in the Blowing Rock area. Gail feels fortunate to have such a stellar group of agents associated with Blowing Rock Properties—a cohesive partnership of professionals who bring an array of individual talents to the company and enjoy working together.
With her 23 years experience in all facets of the real estate business, Gail has listed and sold all types of real estate, and also been involved in her own land development projects, investment properties, and vacation rentals. She currently serves on the Professional Standards Committee for the High Country Association of Realtors and is a licensed general contractor.
“I can’t believe it’s been almost 24 years—I still love what I do and this special spot on the planet. As much as I enjoy traveling, nothing is better than coming back home to the North Carolina mountains!”
“Whether you are buying or selling property, let me put my expertise, experience and enthusiasm to work for you.”
