Gail DeMarco Licensed Real Estate Professional

+1 (916) 220 5700


As longtime Sotheby’s Sacramento professionals with experience across Northern California, you’ll find that the members of the Gail DeMarco Team are different from other professionals.

With us, you get the passionate efforts of a group whose reputation is built on service, dedication and results. We believe in openness and transparency and we consider you an important member of our team effort.

When it comes to helping sellers achieve their goals, I rely not only on my strong marketing and negotiation skills, but my firsthand knowledge of who is buying in communities like El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Folsom, Granite Bay and the newly re-gentrifying East Sacramento.

I not only know how to reach them, I understand their mindset. That’s because, before moving here, I lived in Palo Alto, where I started in real estate with Sotheby’s. The insight I have about these buyers is as helpful in finding buyers for the homes I list as it is for finding homes for buyers I represent. I have firsthand understanding of the needs of buyers and sellers entering and leaving these markets.

I am committed to navigating the entire sale process for you, taking full advantage of my affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty and my eagerness to collaborate with buyers’ agents looking to meet their clients’ needs. It is my pleasure to provide you extraordinary attention as I represent you in the sale of your home for the highest price possible in the shortest time.
