Hello Buyers and Sellers:
My name is Gail Sabato and I became a Realtor in February 2020.
I was raised in the Deep Creek area of Chesapeake and lived there from 1956 to 2014. My family took me to the Outer Banks every year for one or two vacations. I fell in love with the Ocean and everything about the OBX. So when I finally knew I could be a Realtor, I chose "My Happy Place".
I have two children, a daughter Christy and a son Johnny. They are both married and I have 4 grandchildren, Ariel, Alora, Dyante, and Hannah. I have one great granddaughter Avi that will be 2 in August. I could just eat her up!
I have always wanted to be a Realtor, but was afraid to venture out because I was a single Mom for 24 years. I decided it was better for me to obtain a Government job where I knew I would have a definite pay check every two weeks.
In my first job, I was a Certified Property Manager (CPM) for the Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority. I set up the first Section 8 Rental Housing Assistance Program in 1976. I worked for HUD for 6 years before I had the opportunity to be hired by the Federal Government. I took a job in Contracting for the Government in December of 1983 and rose to be the Director of Contracts and I retired in August 2014. I stayed unemployed for two year and lived on the Chowan River in Edenton. My husband and I moved to the Outer Banks in August 2016. I received a call in October of 2016 from the Coast Guard asking me to come back to work for the Government as a consultant. I took the job and continued to train Contract Specialist until August of 2022. I am now able to devote all my time as a full time Realtor.
Since becoming a realtor, I have received the Million Dollar Sales Club Silver Award 2021and the Million Dollar Sales Club Bronze Award 2022
Thanks for taking the time to read my story. I am dedicated and I go above and beyond my responsibilities to help my buyers and sellers.
Have a great day!
