Hi there and thanks for stopping by, my name is Gail Nagele-Hopkins and I’m excited that you’ve clicked on this page to get to know me a little better!

There’s often a fine line between giving you the information that you want to know about my ability to help you, and me simply patting myself on the back and outright bragging.

All “bragging” aside, I want to personally let you know that my clients are gold to me and nothing takes priority over getting them from “Point A” to “Point B” as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Would you say that all real estate brokers are alike?  I certainly hope not.

What it boils down to is people, or rather the individual person, and the utmost professionalism and straightforward honesty that they bring to the table in being able to help you get your new home bought or your current home sold.

So, what do I bring to the table for you? 
Apart from all the “certifications”, “credentials” and a ton of awards hanging on my wall that I’m sure you have no interest in hearing about (that was a little bit of bragging, wasn’t it?), I bring what I would consider even more important, and that is:

*  “Native” Knowledge of the region from living in the Bucks County area my entire life,
*  “Hands-on Experience” in matching my clients’ needs to all of the different choices available to them in this very diverse county, and the
*  Unsurpassable Integrity, Professionalism and yes, Honesty that I spoke of above.  You can be sure that I’m a “straight-shooter” through and through!

There are 5 areas that I specialize in and they are as follows:

*  “Local Residential Sales” – Those Buying and Selling in our Local Market
*  Relocation Services for Corporate and Non-Corporate Individuals
*  Active Adult Communities for those over age 55
*  Historic Homes and Farms
*  New Construction, and
*  Investment Properties for Local and International Buyers

A large portion of my clients are repeat customers.  If there ever comes a time when a past client needs to either move-up to a bigger home, downsize to a smaller space, or make a lateral move, thankfully my name comes to mind as the one to help them do it.  The confidence that my clients have in me is not something that I take for granted, let me assure you.  I truly enjoy the experience of sharing in the continuum of someone’s life.

Relocation for both Corporate and non-Corporate Individuals is an important part of my job as a very active member of our nationally-recognized Relocation and Referral Team. I am certified on many levels of helping people either buy or sell their homes due to relocation.  This “Relo” group of clients has special urgency requirements that take on a life of their own at times.  They need someone highly experienced and adept at handling all of the necessary details for those relocating both from within the United States and from abroad.
As I speak Spanish and can also “make my way” in German, I have had incredible success in bridging the cultural gap for those relocating to our little corner of the world.

Bucks County is quite diverse in its demographics having lots of single professionals, students and families with young children, as well as the “more mature” crowd having found where the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow lies… in Bucks County!  I work extensively with the active adult communities of folks over the age of 55 and find great pleasure in assisting this growing population.

My university and graduate studies at University of Pennsylvania and Bryn Mawr College led to a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology, which explains my passion for historic homes.  This fascination has led me to live in and restore several historic homes personally and therefore, gives me the opportunity to share this knowledge with my clients who are interested in purchasing either an updated antique home or a “fixer-upper”, taking it from being neglected to being nurtured.

I have also spent several years on the new construction side of the fence, working for one of the leading homebuilders in the area.  Needless to say, this background has given me invaluable expertise in new home construction in this area for anyone who is planning to take this route.

And lastly, I have had the pleasure of working with several different investors who know how to spot a great deal and have capitalized on it within Bucks County.  Even now, in this “challenged” housing market, there are many opportunities for investors to purchase and re-sell homes.  Knowing and matching the needs of this empowered group has been exciting and fun, to say the least.

So, I hope that you feel more comfortable in knowing a little bit more about me and my work and exactly how I can help you accomplish what you need to get done with regards to the buying or selling of your home.

Again, I thank you for the opportunity and want to invite you to give me a quick call at 215-859-9304 or drop me a short email at info@MyHomeInBucksCounty.com with any and all questions that you may have.

I would be delighted to hear from you!

Gail

We couldn't have been more impressed with Gail from beginning to end of purchasing our home! Her knowledge through years in the business was such a help as she was knowledgeable about everything from Township codes, wells/septic, home structures etc. To even simple things that mean so much when being anxious from relocating from out of state! She made the entire process so much more pleasurable and stress free by handling the things that we were not knowledgeable about. We were very fortunate to have had her recommended from a friend in the area and are forever grateful for that because we couldn't have had a better experience.

I began my relationship with Gail Nagele-Hopkins when considering selling my home about four years ago. She was professional and responsive providing a detailed proposal for the sale, provided advice on the market place, and ideas for staging my home. Although we decided not to sell Gail has remained my real estate agent of choice and recently represented me on the purchase of an investment property. She showed me different option, listened to what I was looking for, and navigated some potentially difficult sellers with ease and professionalism. The overall result was very positive and financially a good solid outcome for me. She is very knowledgeable about her business and is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Gail to friends, family and my professional colleagues for any of their real-estate needs. April Ann Bohmler

Gail is great to work with. A realtor whom we knew in another state recommended Gail to us. Prior to that recommendation, we had started to work with another realtor who we were dissatisfied with because of lack of attention. Gail was the opposite of that realtor. Right away she listened to us carefully and started working to find properties that fit our requirements. She did an outstanding job of clarifying what we were really looking for.

She was fun to work with, too. She has a great sense of humor, and a directness and honesty that we noticed and appreciated. Like us, she is a bicyclist and knew where to direct us through the covered bridges of Bucks County. We recommend Gail to any buyer without hesitation.

Gail was so professional in every way. I feel so fortunate that Gail was my real estate agent. She gave me her opinion on a subject if I asked but left final decisions up to me. She was always prompt for appointments and I could reach her at any time. Gail knows the real estate market and how it operates and that is what we all want when it comes to buying or selling real estate. I highly recommend her as an agent and you will get the results you want. She is a truly professional real estate agent and person. Doris Morrill, Gorham, Maine formerly of Doylestown, Pa.

Gail is wonderful to work with. She is very knowledgeable about Bucks County and knew exactly what it would take to sell our house quickly. Her pricing strategy was right on. Her suggestions about how to stage our house definitely paid off. The professional photographs that Gail arranged and the property description that she wrote almost made us wonder if we really wanted to sell such a great house! We had the extreme good fortune that the couple who ultimately bought our house viewed it the day after it went on the market, and made an offer within a few days. While there was certainly some luck involved, we are indebted to Gail for pricing and presenting our house in such a positive light. When the buyers' initial offer required some tweaking, Gail was an excellent negotiator who worked with the buyers' agent to achieve a compromise that was acceptable to all parties. Because of Gail's expertise, we sold our house quickly and couldn't be happier in our new home.

While Gail is certainly excellent in all of the above categories, local expertise is where she especially shines. My husband and I were moving out of Philadelphia, looking for a home that we could grow into as we start our family. We were also looking for an older home with character and were pretty picky about layout. We wanted Bucks County but were worried we wouldn't find that charming home on a big piece of property in our price range. As soon as we had our first conversation with Gail, we gained confidence. Gail has enormous stores of knowledge about homes in general and the housing stock of Bucks County in particular. She understood our desires immediately and was able to hone in on what was possible within our budget. Her focus was excellent, so she never wasted our time with a home that wouldn't work for us. She provided excellent guidance and advice throughout our house hunt while always respecting our opinions.

One of the most important roles Gail played was guiding us through our negotiations on the first home we made an offer on. We fell in love with a cute home on a great piece of property and she helped us get an aggressive offer accepted. Then there was an inspection issue on which we just couldn't come to terms with the owners. Gail guided us through it with compassion and wisdom, letting us know we were sure to find a home we loved even more. And, of course, we did! In the end, my husband and I bought a big, beautiful home on a great piece of property in exactly the area we wanted. The house needs very little work and fit right in our budget. I think the reason we got the incredible deal we got was that Gail truly understood what our priorities were -- this house might not be perfect for everyone, but it truly is perfect for us. We feel so fortunate to have found Gail and would recommend her to anyone!

I was just back to living in the States after living abroad for 10 years
and wanted to finally settle down and purchase my first home. Gail was
recommended to me by an acquaintance and boy, was that a great
recommendation. Not only did she have a firm grasp on what it was like for
me to live abroad and move back, due to her own international experience
(her son lives abroad), but she has lived in this area her whole life and
could give me details about neighborhoods and certain homes that I'm
positive no one else could have known. I thoroughly enjoyed her personality
and professionalism and would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a
home in the Bucks County region. Thanks Gail!
