Gabe is a Principal and co-Founder of Alchemy Real Estate. Born and raised in the Baltimore Metro area, Gabe’s first career was in the restaurant business where he landed a job at the age of 13. At the young age of 18, Gabe had worked his way up from a chef to co-owner of a restaurant. After running the business for a few years, Gabe sold his portion of the business to start a new life and career in Seattle.
In 1997, Gabe entered the real estate world and spent his first year in the business with a small local independent agency. He then moved on to Windermere Real Estate where he discovered and grew his niche as an urban land broker. After a few years there, Gabe moved to Re/Max where his success continued.
In 2007, he co-founded Alchemy Real Estate Group with Jay Miller. At this point in his career, Gabe had established himself as Seattle’s premier Land Broker. Combined with their experience and deep understanding of the market place, Gabe and Jay built Seattle’s first full service builder developer brokerage services company. Eleven years later, Alchemy has five departments and is currently a team of 34 people. Those departments are land acquisitions, new home listing services, entitlement services, new construction buyer’s agency and retail commercial listing services. Having represented around 175 builder/developers in 800+/- land acquisitions, Alchemy has sold around 5,000 speculative housing units.
Gabe lives with his wife Kenda and two children, Kellan and Luka on Mercer Island.
Jay is also a Principal and co-Founder of Alchemy Real Estate. A Pacific Northwest native, Jay graduated from the University of Washington in 1994. Since then, he has practiced in all areas of residential construction and development. In 1995, Jay began as a construction manager for several multi-family projects. In 1995, Jay obtained his real estate license credential, adding a layer to his service platform. From 1996 to 2002, Jay ran residential new construction projects in the capacity of: finding the raw land, working with the architect, permitting, superintending, and listing the completed units. It is this vertically integrated approach to development that Jay brings to marketing.
Jay is passionate about development and the Pacific Northwest. He is constantly curious about what makes our real estate market tick. From new single family homes to new construction and converted condominiums, Jay’s knowledge and depth of understanding this market is communicated in a way that adds value. As an apartment owner/investor and as a general contractor, Jay is able to approach the market from many angles when viewing how to best serve the needs of his clients.
Award winning service centered around the client is the foundation of Alchemy Real Estate. It is the company’s vision and commitment to excellence in adding value that drives the company everyday. The greatest testimony this company has received goes well beyond a rate of return or the successful sellout of a project. Alchemy Real Estate is in the business of creating lasting relationships with those who can directly benefit from the unique approach we take. Honed by Jay since the beginning, this approach is based on a simple philosophy that we are all partners in what we do. Relationship above all else is what we value.
