Gayle Harvey, born and raised in Central Virginia, has always appreciated the natural beauty and lifestyle that the Charlottesville area land offers. After receiving her degree in Economics from Sweet Briar College, Gayle, desiring a life outdoors, began managing a commercial fruit and beef cattle operation. Later, she moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan to manage the marketing department of a large U.S. apple operation.
She has been active in various agricultural committees both nationally as well as locally. It wasn’t long after moving to Michigan, that Gayle realized what she had left behind and longed to return to the Central Virginia area. As a prelude to her departure she turned her sights away from agriculture and towards technology. She completed a degree in Information Systems and a MBA in e-commerce, which she believes greatly enhances the services she can offer her clients. Gayle now incorporates her technological abilities into her real estate career; “We live in a fast-paced world where people do not have time to visit 50-plus properties before making a selection. I want my clients to feel that they have made the best selection for themselves and I utilize technology to help achieve this goal. "
Taking care of the details and following through have always been Gayle’s motto. She remarks that, “Many times this simply means communicating with my clients frequently so that they know where they stand." When not selling real estate, Gayle can be found with her dogs or studying.
