Gabriella Schaefer is an accomplished real estate professional with 12 years of experience and a proven track-record in multi-million-dollar residential sales in NYC, specifically Manhattan and Brooklyn. With a degree and prior career in Accounting, Gabriella offers an in-depth financial perspective grounded in financial modeling, economic drivers and cost-benefit analysis. She believes the value of a real estate professional lies in guiding her customers through the process, fiercely negotiating the transaction, protecting their best interests and saving time and money. This approach has built her a business primarily predicated on repeat and referral clients.
In this era, information is more than ever readily accessible. Yet, what makes residential sales still a bit archaic, is that there are no true checks and balances throughout the purchase and sales process outside of your broker & attorney. To err is human. This backdrop underscores, now more than before, the important role the right broker plays in delivering value. In addition to going above and beyond, what has helped Gabriella succeed and serve her customers' best, is her intuition, judgment, strong listening skills and attention to detail.
As a New Yorker who speaks fluent Portuguese and Spanish, she also sets herself apart from other professionals by her extensive experience in renovating homes. She has worked with properties that needed structural work, obtained various buildings' Certificate of Occupancy's, as well as satisfy other Department of Building Open Permit requirements. Gabriella graduated from Rutgers University, cum laude, with a BS in Accounting. She worked at Deloitte in Audit & Capital Records in Private Accounting prior to transitioning into real estate. She also spent four years in commercial real estate where she represented customers such as Mind Share, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, Mintz Levin LLC, and MTV.
