Gabe values the client relationship above all else and is praised by his clients for his integrity, competency & negotiation skills. He took a risk and after the market crash in ’08 quit his job to begin Royale Vacation Rentals. Today, RVR is one of the valley’s leading rental companies managing approx. 80 properties.   In 2016, Gabe launched Royale Real Estate making one comprehensive luxury real estate solution. Gabe believes that success is not just about profitable businesses, it includes thriving relationships, spiritual wholeness, mental clarity, physical wellness, and emotional balance. Gabe achieves this by setting goals & giving back.


After struggling with infertility for nearly 4 years, Gabe and his wife went through Invitro Fertilization with one of the valley’s best specialists.  Nine months later, their first daughter, Miracle Joy was born.  Because of their fertility struggles, they adopted their second child, Selah Janae, from the Florida Department of Children and Families.  Their third daughter, Zyon Grace, was all a surprise and a welcomed blessing. Gabe, his wife, Shawnine, and their beautiful three girls reside in La Quinta.  When not selling real estate, spending time with his family or giving back through his local church, Gabe enjoys golfing our beautiful valley courses and hiking our spectacular mountains – including completing the famous “Palms to Pines” hike.
