Gabby joined Elyse Harney Real Estate in 2018 when her enthusiasm and sparkle at her previous job caught our eye and seemed like a wonderful fit for our busy office. Her energy and drive quickly helped her to learn the ropes here in supporting our nearly 30 agents and 5 offices with all of the behind the scenes office support. She is an integral part of the team and there is no challenge she can’t conquer! In addition to her vast knowledge of nearly everything and “can-do” attitude. It’s Gabby’s contagious smile and charismatic wit that win us all over, even in the grind of the busiest of seasons.
