Realtor Gil Soares spent 7 years traveling the world as an international model when he was brought to the USA by his modeling agency. He spent quite some time in New York and Los Angeles before falling in love with the perfect weather, palm trees, people and lifestyle that California has to offer.
After spending 3 years living in West Hollywood and modeling full time, Gil decided that he was going to make the US his permanent home. Growing up in a small village in Portugal, Gil learnt the importance of being honest and accountable in a community. With a small population of 900 people, word travels fast and being an honest and kind man is an important part of living a small, tight-knit community. Fortunately, Gil never lost his humble roots and carried with him his integrity and moral reputation as he canvassed the globe working for high fashion brands, from walking runways in Milan, to shooting commercials in Paris.
In 2016 Gil passed the examinations and became certified as a NASM Personal Trainer, however he wanted to contribute more to the community and immerse himself fully into his new home country. It was then that he decided to take the California State exam to become a Real Estate Salesperson, and is now an associate with the long-standing and highly regarded agency, Ramsey-Shilling. Gil is mostly focusing his sales activities in his local communities of West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Toluca Lake. Operating since 1953, Gil truly values the reputation this boutique agency has established in the community. Its core values of creating and establishing trust, dedication, loyalty and experience is something very familiar to Gil and his hometown-village way of life.
Gil has obtained a deep knowledge of his local neighborhoods of having lived in both West Hollywood and Burbank and welcomes this wonderful opportunity in creating a strong presence in the Real Estate industry. Fluent in Portuguese, English and able to also speak Italian and some French, Gil prides himself in being able to communicate with many different nationalities. He looks forward to meeting you and sharing his knowledge, full service real estate assistance, honor and ethical business principals with you to help make your real estate dreams come to reality.
