Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Working with all levels of buyers and sellers in Naperville makes being in real estate a dream job for Gail Niermeyer. After 29 years in the industry, Niermeyer, a broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, still loves making personal connections with all of her clients. She understands the emotions of a transferee who is forced to move often, is sympathetic to the needs of older clients who have to transition into more suitable housing and adores guiding enthusiastic first-time homebuyers step-by-step through the process.
Niermeyer sharpened her sales skills working for Xerox Corporation in the 1970s. She moved up to sales manager, allowing her to share wisdom with her employees, before a car accident took her out of the workforce for a decade.
Upon her return, Niermeyer knew sales was still the career for her, and real estate seemed to be a perfect fit. “The training I received from my career at Xerox selling and teaching sales enables me to understand the needs of my clients,” she says. “I work with all clients and enjoy helping millennials and seniors alike!”
The luxury market in Naperville has become extremely competitive, Niermeyer says, noting accurate pricing is key to a successful sales cycle. “I try to keep sellers abreast of what’s happening in their marketplace and in the industry so that they can make it happen.” The redevelopment of Naperville has allowed Niermeyer to work with some of the area’s top builders, relationships she truly values. She credits her success to the great support she receives from Coldwell Banker leadership.
Niermeyer is honored to be a founding trustee of the Coldwell Banker Charitable Foundation, which has raised more than $1.8 million since its inception. Her involvement enables her to have Coldwell Banker support 30 local charities. Niermeyer has also been in Coldwell Banker’s President’s Club since its inception in 2000. She is a trustee on the Edward Hospital Foundation and a major supporter of the Edward Cancer Center in Naperville.
Niermeyer enjoys spending time and traveling with her family, particularly to Kennebunkport, Maine and St. Bart’s.
