I am a full-time REALTOR® and have been in the business for just over 7 years. Real estate is my passion because I get to be the trusted advisor in helping my clients achieve their real estate goals, while also building a deep relationship with my clients. Real estate isn’t just about serving my clients; it’s also about serving my community and our industry. I currently serve as the local REALTOR® PAC trustee, which is a culmination of my love of real estate, politics, and serving others to make a difference. I love volunteering with our local, state, and national associations and being part of making a positive difference in the real estate industry. Outside of real estate, I love spending time with my boyfriend, our families and close friends. I am a huge dog lover; we have two dogs, Chloe and Nora. As an 18–year cancer survivor, I love being able to give back to others in their greatest time of need. When I was battling cancer, those people were essential to my survival and victory. I enjoy regularly volunteering at the Ronald McDonald house and cooking dinner for residents. I also love gardening, being outdoors, traveling, and creating and living a fulfilling life. I look forward to the opportunity of serving our association and I am grateful for your vote!

Gaye Shumaker

My name is Gaye Shumaker. 35 years ago, fresh out of college with an English degree, and dreading a life involving punching a time clock, I followed a friend to a Real Estate Licensing class. That day, I found my calling. After six exciting years with a Metzger Map and desk phone, I took a break to raise three kids & all their pets, and to volunteer for countless hours. Then, 18 years ago I made it back to my passion of real estate and every day is a surprise. I am a big picture thinker and I love strategy. Creating win-win situations, making friends, and constantly learning from new situations are some of the highlights of my career. I would be honored and thrilled to use my experience and win-win nature to serve you on our SR Board of Directors.
