Gayle Jenkins Managing Broker, COO

Gayle began her real estate career in the New Orleans area by learning from experienced agents and brokers who underscored the value of being client- and agent-focused. Fully immersing herself into this business, she took real estate courses at University of New Orleans to further her knowledge in the field. As opportunities arose, both residential and commercial property management became another area of expertise to increase her brand recognition. In 2003, Gayle successfully launched Monarch Realty Group with a select group of collegues focusing on client focus and brand development. Throughout this endeavour, Gayle has built residential homes, townhomes, and a condo complex. Recognizing the changing tides in this industry, in 2016 Gayle merged Monarch Realty Group with globally-recognized United Real Estate Partners.

Today, Gayle is focusing on the United brand and her agents, promoting the same vision and core values instilled in her throughout her 40+ year real estate career. As the mother of 2 and grandmother to 6, family time is a precious commodity to her - not to mention the time spent with her adorable fur-babies. Whenever she can, Gayle devotes her spare time to aid in the animal resuce effort, taking photos to help raise money and awarenenss for adoptable pets.
