Biography

Gabe is a Principal and co-Founder of Alchemy Real Estate. Born and raised in the Baltimore Metro area, Gabe’s first career was in the restaurant business where he landed a job at the age of 13. At the young age of 18, Gabe had worked his way up from a chef to co-owner of a restaurant. After running the business for a few years, Gabe sold his portion of the business to start a new life and career in Seattle. In 1997, Gabe entered the real estate world and spent his first year in the business with a small local independent agency. He then moved on to Windermere Real Estate where he discovered and grew his niche as an urban land broker. After a few years there, Gabe moved to Re/Max where his success continued. In 2007, he co-founded Alchemy Real Estate with Jay Miller. Combined with their experience and deep understanding of the marketplace, they built Seattle’s first full-service builder developer brokerage services company. Nineteen years later, Alchemy has five departments and is currently a team of 25 people. Those departments are land acquisitions, new home listing services, entitlement services, new construction buyer’s agency and retail listing services. Having represented around 175 builder/developers in 800+/- land acquisitions, Alchemy has sold around 6,000 speculative housing units.
