Gretchen Cabaniss is a third generation Realtor who entered the Real Estate market at a time when many agents where leaving due to an economic down turn.  She new if she was going to survive and be successful she needed to be aggressive, competitive, and knowledgeable.  She began her career as a Mortgage Loan Officer learning the “ins” an “outs” of the lending market. After having her son and wanting more flexibility she transitioned into RE Sales.  Today Gretchen has a successful record of closing transactions ranging from residential and rural land to the traditional residential sales that also include foreclosures and Short Sales. 

Gretchen has a long history in Real Estate. Her father was a commercial contractor, her mother was in New Home sales working in San Diego and Orange County for over 30 years and both her Uncle and Grandfather were Real Estate developers.  Gretchen offers a wealth of professional and personal knowledge and the experience that buyers and sellers require from their RE professionals.

Gretchen was born in Southern California and raised in San Diego. She is extremely excited to be part of the HomeSmart Realty Team and looks forward to working with you on your RE needs.

I am glad you are in Real Estate. The business needs agents with integrity, like you. I’ve seen my fair share of the opposite.

Good Luck,
