About Gabrielle Enfield, Founder, Working Magic at Living Room Realty:
I grew up in Woodland, Washington, and live in the wooded hills of Bridlemile, where I’m raising my family. #boymom. Today I am the #1 agent at my brokerage – which is Portland’s #1 real estate office – and consistently rank in the top 1% of more than 8,400 brokers in the Portland metro. I love what I do and it shows.
Before real estate, my career spans two decades of expertise I’m fortunate enough to apply every day. These experiences range from being a TV news anchor (visual storyteller) to helping develop some of the world’s beloved brands like Xbox and Dave’s Killer Bread (strategy and engagement). I was on the forefront of integrated media and managed events that took global stage.
I was practically born to sell Real Estate: my Dad is a retired custom home designer and builder, my Uncle is an architect and my Grandpa was a Realtor and developer. I am an active listener, have a keen eye for “good bones”, and solving my clients’ real estate needs in a creative and often unexpected way brings me joy. Plus, the lasting relationships formed are cherries on the sundae! Please give a call – I’d love to see what it would be like to partner with you. For a look inside my everyday life, be sure to follow along on Instagram.
Gabs is in a different category. I've bought and sold 2 homes and a condo before working with Gabs, and while I've never had a bad experience with my previous brokers, working with her makes me realize that there are different levels to this profession.
In every step of the process, Gabs brought something I’d never seen to the experience. She didn't just look our home and make recommendations for what things we should renovate before selling, she gave us separate tiers of renovations we could do, and described the different potential results we could realize with each tier of investment. She didn't just look at a few comps in the neighborhood and guess where our selling price should be, she showed up with complex data analysis; explaining all the sales, inventory, and seasonal trends to us in language we could understand. And she handled everything: staging, marketing, social PR, photography, videos, even the contractors who helped get our home in the shape it needed to be in to sell. When it came to the actual sale, she negotiated for us like a champ. I don't have to tell you that the results were far beyond our expectations. I couldn't recommend anyone more. She's simply the best, most professional broker you can work with. And just a good human on top of it.

Highly recommend Gabrielle!. I did a lot of research about the real estate market before deciding to hire an agent, and I interviewed four agents before selecting Gabrielle. I am so glad that I did. She helped me get the house ready for market, and her contacts with contractors was critical. With the listing, her photography and marketing were far superior to anything else; she made my house look great! She has a great eye and knows how to highlight a home’s best features. She answered dozens of questions and helped walk me through the process. I have already recommended her to several friends, and I don’t do that lightly. She is worth every penny and her upbeat enthusiasm helped buoy me through the stressful points.
Gabrielle is top notch, and I recommend her to all my friends. We found out about her through my son and his wife. She helped them buy their first home. She represented us when we sold our home, which we had an offer in 3 days, and sold for $50,000.00 over asking! She also helped us find a home that was better than we had hoped. She’s a go getter, she knows her market, and she knows how to sell real estate. She was hands on, but what impressed me the most is she treated us like family. If I could give her 10 stars I would. She’s the best!

After completing 14 real estate transactions with various agents, I was finally lucky enough to meet Gabrielle. ...the Realtor I have always hoped to meet but never thought actually existed. Gabby is a creative/marketing visionary and an absolute delight to work with. An open and personable communicator, she has been a fantastic partner in developing go-to-market plans and recommending pre-listing projects to maximize ROI based on our budget and appetite for the scale of work as sellers. I was lucky enough to find Gabrielle through a personal recommendation, and she has far exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend her to represent sellers and buyers after working with her on both sides. I am looking forward to a future opportunity to partner with her and her team again in the future.
Gabrielle is exceptional… She shoots at a different hoop than any other broker you will find out there. I've bought and sold several houses in the past and have an extremely low opinion of all real estate brokers, commercial and residential. It is a field void of creativity and vision ripe for disruption... an unneeded service, that typically consists of well-paid goofballs, who provide little value for the commission they get paid. and with the exception of Gabrielle... I still believe this! Gabrielle is incredible! She is a creative problem solver, consultant, and business person. The type of person you want to overpay, because of all the value she brings. If you are lucky enough to work with her, do it. It is a decision you won't regret.
Gab is fantastic and we feel so lucky that we found her. She was incredibly detail-oriented and gave us direct instructions on what we needed to do to get our house into shape. She's also a marketing wiz and has such an eye for staging, decorating, and telling a story. This was evident by the 50+ house tours we had over the weekend. Within 48 hours of being on the market, we received 10 offers for well above our asking price. Thank you, Gab! You rock!
We were first-time home buyers and Gabrielle was such a huge help through the entire process. She was dedicated from the get-go, helping with the house search and giving us a lot of helpful perspective on the Portland market and what we could expect in our price range. Once we decided on a property, she immediately went to work--got us help from the sellers on closing costs, got us under the asking price and got all the necessary work from the inspection covered and completed before our closing date. Not only that, but Gabrielle has been extremely supportive emotionally, understanding that this endeavor can be stressful, and helped answer any and all of our questions (no matter how small) quickly and thoroughly. We just closed this week and, while we hope to be in our new home for a long time, would definitely work with Gab again and would absolutely recommend her to our family and friends.

Gabrielle was a delight to work with!. She was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very hard working. She listened and really cared about our needs and requests. She made sure all our needs were met and all our questions were answered! She made the whole home buying process easier and enjoyable and she went out of her way to make sure everything was done correctly and promptly. I would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Gabrielle for going above and beyond for us!

I thought that you could buy a house on Zillow, instead it took a lot of diligent work by a devoted professional like Gabrielle to help me make this purchase possible. She is a great friend and greater ally to have on your side. Thank you so much Gabrielle!!!
Paul W., Client
After buying our 1st home, we still have no idea how hard it is to be a 1st time buyer in Portland. We heard stories, we were warned and discouraged, we read the depressing articles and opinions. But going into this we had a huge advantage, Gabrielle. After about a year of scavenging the websites, driving by homes and checking out neighborhoods without an agent or financing lined up, we found THE house. Fortunately, we were referred to Gabrielle by a friend that same night we drove by the house and fell in love. From there things happened so quickly and smoothly. She got us into the house right away and within days our offer was accepted. Gabrielle and her team handled and explained everything, coordinated with our mortgage team and we really had no stress through the entire process. Now perhaps we should have called her sooner, but when we did call she got down to business immediately, she made our dream happen and she made buying a home an easy and pleasant experience. We understand our experience is very rare here in Portland, but again, our deck was loaded with Gabrielle. We would recommend her to any and everybody to help you with your dream. We could not be happier. Thanks Gabrielle!
Michele P., Client
Gabrielle worked some magic for us when buying our dream beach house!. She was very attentive, proactive and professional during the entire process. There are always little hurdles when buying a home and Gabrielle handled those we encountered with quick and decisive action. We beat out a higher offer due to her knowledge, patience, warmth and by creating a great communication bridge between us and the seller. Gabrielle is highly recommended and I would refer any home buyer to her in the future!
Lee D., Client
Gab is absolutely AMAZING!. She is my favorite! She is very knowledgeable & very responsible! She is there whenever you need her, and takes very good care of your needs. And she really works hard to make things happen for us! Furthermore, she did an awesome follow up after we got our house. We had a wonderful experience working with her and developed a friendship together.
