Gail is an exceptional leader. She is the reason I joined the Matthews office of Allen Tate. She is an excellent trainer and nurtures each agent to achieve everything they are capable of! Her kind spirit shows through in all her actions and she is one of the finest people I know. I owe my success to her!

Thank you,

'I had the privilege of having Gail as my BIC for many years. During that time Gail was a champion to all her knew her. Gail's calm demeanor and all hands on deck mentality resonated to our office having the best work ethics. I would not be where I'm today! Gail proved to be an enormous source for information and guided our team to be the best in real estate! If you've been lucky enough to be a friend, co-worker, or colleague, you have been blessed. '

Susie Verrill

'I have worked with the Allen Tate Company for 18 years. The last 5 have been with Gail Hurst as my Broker-in-Charge. Immediately upon moving to her office, I was adopted into the family....and she is the very charming & gracious Head of the Household. In her years in the real estate business, Gail has achieved a strikingly high level of Wisdom. ( remember...Wisdom is derived from experience, and some of that experience can be very frightening) As a broker, it is Priceless to have Gail available to "talk about issues and problems" that will inevitably be encountered in this industry. She will stop whatever she is doing and will Listen, not just wait for her turn to speak. Due to her experience-derived wisdom, her advice has always been well thought-out, worthy and greatly appreciated. You know that Gail "Has Your Back". One tends to sleep better knowing this.... Gail is a wonderful person and leader...such a rarity. '

Kinsey Cockman

She was always quick to respond to a question, request or situation. I knew that Gail always had my back and my best interest at heart. It was my pleasure working with Gail and I wouldn't hesitate to work along side her again. '

Dawn Crocker

I have known Gail Hurst for more than 15 years as my Broker In Charge, teacher, coach and a great friend. She is always there for her agents to help them succeed in their professional and personal life. Gail is a pleasure to know and work with as she is a good example to follow one who truly walks the talk!'

Sue Davis

I first met Gail as an agent and then later under her as her Sales Manager. I cannot imagine a better role model and teacher. Gail is patient, caring and knows real estate. The agents in the office love her and respect her which is a tough balance to strike. She is always fair and puts the agent first and always has their best interest at heart. As a BIC myself, she is my first call for complicated situations and her perspective is invaluable to me. If I were an agent today I would pray that I had this leader on my side to grow and lead me in my real estate business. She is nothing short of amazing!'

Sandi Salisbury

'I worked for Gail for almost 4 years. She is one of the main reasons why I joined Allen Tate Realtors and the Matthews/Mint Hill office. We have had many discussions regarding North Carolina and South Carolina real estate and I always enjoyed bouncing things off her. Regardless of your real estate experience, I highly recommend that you seriously consider a move to an office managed by her.'

Allen Valentine
'Gail Hurst is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and knows how to manage an office. She is an experienced leader, teacher and communicator, which allows her to help others reach their real estate goals. Although she is sweet through and through, she handles adversity head on and is an advocate for the agents in her office. She creates an office atmosphere that encourages friendship and helping one another. I have known Gail for years and I can't recommend her enough. '
