Jerald Zwak Broker/Owner
As an Army veteran, I had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people daily from around the country. Representing buyers and sellers in Clarke County – home to the University of Georgia – brings such a variety of people into the area. It is the largest employer in the area. Athens, although a college town has a small town feel to it also. This continues to add to the beauty of our state. Georgia’s beauty, people and space are why Lynne and I chose this as home 27 years ago. Some of our family is in Georgia, and the rest are spread around the country. And the rest of our counties? I love having space after living in a congested area most of my life. Lynne and I moved to Georgia in 1990. Most people who look for homes in these counties don’t want to be part of an HOA or have people on top of them. Great neighbors are great – they are even better at a small distance! You can find a lot of historic homes, properties that can be renovated, or new homes. Acreage varies from 1/3 acre to 20+. If it’s lake life you want, there are several nice lakes to choose from. All price points. Being able to offer our clients breathing room, value and a spacious quality of life keep us charged up to match home seekers with their next home. I take my firm’s transparency and my qualifications seriously. Be assured our firm is Liability and E&O insured. I am also Res.net, Equator and NRBA DMS certified. Continuing education keeps us current on trends, tools and the ability to provide the best service to our clients. The only way to stay relevant and ahead of the competition is to provide the best service and resources for our clients. I have been a member of the National REO Brokers Association since 2007. Through this organization’s membership, I’m able to pull resources from around the country to help buyers move here from other states, stay on top of changing legislation that could benefit our clients, and keep the transaction smooth and in full compliance which prevents delays and hiccups – both emotionally and financially. We look forward to helping you in your next real estate transaction, BPO, asset listings and more.

My Husband and I highly recommend Gemstone Realty, Not only were we first time home buyers, but also just had our 2nd child. Mrs. Lynn and the whole Gemstone Realty team went above and beyond to help us with a very complicated purchase, financing arrangement and closing. If you are looking for a team who goes the distance Gemstone Realty is it! Thanks to Lynne and Jerald we will be moving into our amazing new home with no regrets.

Gemstone Realty recently handle a rather complicated purchase for us. It involved an unusual financing arrangement, a remote closing and they even suggested repair professionals that kept us on budget. This transaction would not have happened without the Real Estate Pros at Gemstone Realty. Highly recommend this group for and any and all your Real Estate needs. Thanks Lynne and Jerald for your help.

We recommend them highly. We purchased a home from them a few years ago. They were very helpful through the whole process. We recently sold our home through them and they were very patient through the whole process. They are now helping us to find another home. Very nice people. You would all like them.

We handled a few transactions under the advice and guidance from Gemstone Realty. We could always rely on Jerald's advice, and there was no "stupid question" to ask. Most impressive was that Gemstone Realty was ready at any moment we stumbled upon a property that we wanted to see - they made it happen. Right away. And, regardless how many we turned down, Jerald was always ready to help, show, present the next one. Morning, afternoon, evening and 7 days a week. Each visit was followed up by similar properties in the area forwarded to our email. Access to information was not an issue, and it was placed right in front of our eyes so we can effortlessly review it. Mr. Zwak is always prepared. When a deal came to fruition - everything was ready. If we missed doing something, we got contacted and reminded to go back on the procedure's track. Very comforting. Very easy to work with. One place we did not need to "hawk watch...". Making it easier to focus on other details of the complex transaction. For future investments, we know we are going to use Gemstone Realty, hands down!
