The small community of St. Helena in the heart of Napa Valley is rooted in a deep sense of history and tradition. Its pioneer lineage and its current place in California's wine industry have given the town a distinctive character, one which St. Helena Real Estate (SHRE) strives to honor. Like its unique location, SHRE is no ordinary real estate company. Providing professional service while keeping the character of the town and valley it serves, SHRE is the only 'Modern Boutique' real estate firm in northern California's wine region.
The office in downtown St. Helena features a selection of large prints owner Gail Morgan Lane inherited from her ancestors, illustrating the history of the town and flavor of the valley dating back to the late 1800's. The office also features a lounge area, complete with flat screen television and plush leather furniture creating a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Another unique feature found at SHRE is their beautiful backyard garden complete with stone walls covered in greenery with Michelin starred Terr Restaurant beyond. The company's balance of beauty and function as well as the team's dedication to their clientele make them especially suited to represent the niche of properties in the Napa Valley that include vineyards, wineries adn upscale estates.
Gail's years of experience both as an agent and broker have culminated in this new vision which has allowed her to grow the company slowly and in her own way. Starting out nearly 25 years ago and growing beyond anything she ever imagined, Gail decided in 2000 to get back to what she loved the most - a small yet influential real estate frim with a team of carefully selected top producers. The result of which is the creation of a sales team that truly enjoys working together, "We're all independent contractors, yet we thrive off each other's success. We know one another's listings as if they were our own and it's not uncommon for us to help each other out," says Gail. "We don't have a receptionist, by design, with the goal being that all calls to our office will be answered by an experienced, licensed and knowledgeable broker or agent."
