Gabby joined The TAG TeamTM as a part-time as an apprentice appraiser. She joined looking to explore real estate appraisal as new career that would allow her freedom and flexibility. Gabby’s favorite aspect of the job is the learning about each of the businesses (in a commercial building), she enjoys hearing their stories of growth and change, as well as the privilege of meeting the business owners and managers. Gabby is originally from the western suburbs of Chicago, and moved to Lakeville MN, by way of Montana. Gabby loves fitness and sports – so much so that she almost graduated a semester early due to all of the physical education credits she took: rock climbing, springboard diving, sailing (on the Charles River), skating, broomball, and lifeguarding. Gabby first learned to drive an old manual VW convertible bug, she recalls sitting at a red light, at the front of the line, struggling to shift into first gear. It took her 5 cycles of red lights, but she eventually accomplished her goal – and still loves driving a stick shift. She uses this experience as a reminder that, if you put your mind to it, and focus, you can eventually accomplish anything.
