Sara is the Administrative Assistant for The Gatas Team at Keller Williams Realty Buffalo Northtowns. She has been working for the team since November 2015. She has an array of duties ranging from inputting listings into all of the platforms, scheduling appointments for buyers and once we have an accepted offer on a home, making sure all deadlines are met to make sure the targeted closing date is met.
She has been married since 2004 and has 4 wonderful children. Her and her family love taking road trips and visiting different museums and while at home, love having movie nights.
I’ve been in the real estate industry for 13 years now. I began as a receptionist and quickly moved into the office manager position. After 2 years, I obtained my real estate salesperson license and gained experience with listing and selling properties. I then gained 6 years of knowledge and experience as a COO & CFO. I was also the founder and President of Keller Williams Young Professionals Buffalo Chapter, the first of it’s kind in New York State. In 2017, I took everything I’ve learned over the years, narrowed down what was needed in the Buffalo real estate market and started my own company. I currently offer transaction management, administrative training and social media marketing to Keller Williams agents.
