Today we’d like to introduce you to Gabriela Delano.
Hi Gabriela, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My family and I moved to Kansas City when I was nine years old. I had moved around a lot as a kid and instantly fell in love with it here. When I was about nine years old, I started dancing and doing shows around town, which eventually led me to study musical theatre at Oklahoma City and then move to NYC where I found an agent. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in NY, Chicago, across the country, and across the world. This past year I was scheduled to play Julie Jordan in Carousel at Musical Theatre Heritage at Crown Center when the pandemic shut us down two days before opening. New York was the epicenter of the pandemic, and all of my roommates got sick. I knew I couldn’t go back just yet but wanted to keep moving forward.
The pandemic re-established the meaning of “home” and led me to get my real estate license. I’m currently working out of the Reece Nichols Leawood office with the Koehler Bortnick Team (#12 in the nation) and love it. I’ve worked on selling homes across the KC Metro, Liberty, and Lawrence. I do a great job advocating for my clients, negotiating, and getting my listings sold fast.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I had always known I was going to move back to Kansas, but the hardest part was feeling like I didn’t have control over “when” because of the pandemic. Performing came to an abrupt halt and I was juggling with “what now” as so many of us were. Real estate was an unexpected change, but I have found so much joy in finding people their “dream home”. I still perform on the side, and that continues to fill my cup.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I currently do real estate at Reece Nichols as well as teach voice lessons and perform in musical theatre. Most people know me in Kansas City for performing, but I am very proud about how quickly I’ve been able to find success as a realtor. I think what sets me apart from others is my ability to listen and effectively communicate with others.
