I believe that the friendship that evolves from helping others find their dream home or sell their existing home is the most rewarding aspect of being in Real Estate. 

I came to Gainesville 1984 to attend the University of Florida - Go Gators! and received a Bachelors of Science, Masters of Engineering and a Degree of Engineer in Computer Science Engineering from the UF. I worked as a Sales Consultant and then as a Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Barr Systems, Inc. - a great, local Computer Company - for 13 years and enjoyed every minute of it. 

I am married to a wonderful husband and have two amazing children that are the center of our world. We are excited that they both decided to follow in our footsteps and are pursuing degrees in Engineering at the University of Florida. 

My husband's business as a general contractor instigated my enthusiasm for Real Estate. So I eventually got my license and joined the best brokerage firm in town. I love every aspect of real estate from getting to know the buyers and sellers, to evaluating the homes, to all stages of construction or remodeling, and owning and managing several rental properties.· 

As an active member of the community, I have been involved with School Bands, School PTAs, Boy Scouts of America, Buchholz Volleyball, Vision Volleyball of Gainesville and Community HOA by holding several leadership roles and being a member of the board. I was nominated the 2008 Volunteer of the Year for Talbot Elementary. 

My Credentials include: 

- Licensed Broker 
- Consistent multi-million dollar producer with over $22.5 Million in production in 2015 
- International Diamond Society - Top 8% of all sales associates internationally 
- Consistent top producer at MM Parrish Realtors 
- Member of the Gainesville-Alachua County Association of Realtors, Florida Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors 
- GACAR Top Producer Award winner 
- Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI) 
- Certified New Home Specialist (CNHS) 
- Residential Construction Certified (RCC) 
- Fluent in Arabic and French

I don't believe in giving five stars to too many, but in this case it is deserved. Rana comes across as a professional and almost immediately I was sold on her expertise. She was also very calm and relaxed as to how she provided her services. Many find buying a house stressful, this is the lady to assist you in buying a home and she enjoys what she does. Rana has a welcoming demeanor and you will find her accommodating to your questions. She is not a 20 million dollar plus sales person for no reason.


03/05/2018 - TAR2009

Rana was helpful every step of the way in the search for our house and with taking care of details once we found one to purchase. She is very knowledgable, always ready to answer any questions we had, and very patient! I would highly recommend working with her.


03/28/2017 - cyclegirl52

Rana is very experienced knowledgeable and compassionate about the work she is doing . You can tell she enjoys what she's doing and cares genuinely about the people that she is working with. No matter how many houses we wanted to see or what kind of information we requested she was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our needs were met. I really felt like she had our best interest in mind every step of the way. We were living in another country during our search and she had a previously planned vacation she went on but not once was she out of reach. Email or phone call she got back to us immediately when issues or concerns came up .
A perfect example of her caring and concern, four months after we purchased our home I received an email from Rana reminding me of the deadline date to file for Homestead exemption, to me that show someone who cares about the people. We have, and will always recommended Rana to friends and family.


03/16/2017 - havirdj

Rana did not approach us with any issues without already having solutions, typically more than one. Her predictions prior to listing proved true and the house moved quickly and for the price we discussed.


03/15/2017 - user6120497

I have really no words to describe Rana's services. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. She is very knowledgeable, has lots of connections, knows who fixes everything, and she will make everything she can to help you buy, sell, or rent a home. We have done it all with her! Rana is awesome and you will love working with her!


02/21/2017 - MANUEL054

Rana is an invaluable agent. Always cheerful, and very responsive,
from first contact to closing. Did an excellent job preparing our purchase offer, securing us some benefits we never imagined.


02/21/2017 - asmith idif

We had a fantastic experience working with Rana. What we appreciated the most is that she took the time to get to know us. She understood our requirements and needs and she was highly efficient in showing houses. She is very professional, and I wouldn't recommend anyone else. In fact, I've recommended her to several of my coworkers already. We loved working with her. Our house hunting trip was the easiest experience we have ever had in our lives because of Rana.

Rana Schafer is simply an amazing Real Estate Professional. I recently moved from Chicago to take a new position here in Gainesville. I have bought and sold a number of homes in various places across the United States and have never experienced the quality of support I received from Rana and her firm. Rana is warm, authentic, and knowledgeable and tailored her approach to my needs. For example, she has a background in engineering and generously educated me on infrastructure items that were very important to me. Early on, Rana discerned and filtered the market offerings so that I viewed only those homes that were a fit with me. Her knowledge and skills were consistently superior across all phases of the "home buying" process. Most importantly, I quickly developed trust in Rana because of her knowledge, style, and genuine interest in meeting my needs. As a result of her wonderful support, I have a home that I absolutely love. Thank you RANA!!!


05/28/2014 - morgan ash pap

Rana was great to work with every step of the way! A coworker referred me to Rana when I was looking to buy my first house. As a first time home buyer (and now owner), I was pretty overwhelmed by the whole process. However, Rana made the entire experience much easier. She was able to answer all of my questions and I felt like she truly looked out for me in the process. Her network of lenders, inspectors, insurers and repair men is incredible and so helpful, especially for someone new to home ownership or new to the area. And her service doesn't stop after closing; Rana was even available when I had questions and needed assistance after I bought the house. It's obvious she cares about her clients and truly wants to help them find the perfect home. She is an absolute pleasure to work with!


05/13/2014 - bjlutz54

Rana is the BEST. She worked with us on 2 listings and sales. First, last May (2013) Rana helped us with selling our house. She was extremely professional and responsive -- she gets things done! We had a good offer within a couple weeks. Rana helped us through the inspections, arranged for the minor repairs with a reliable contractor at a reasonable cost, and assisted with closing -- negotiating with the buyer's agent and advising us.

In February of 2014, my elderly mom decided to move to be closer to us. We highly recommended Rana as her agent, especially since we lived in another state. Rana took great care of my mom during the process. She had a full price offer within 2 weeks. Rana patiently went over the paperwork and details of the offer/sale with my mom, arranged for the inspections at times that were convenient, and (with my mom's permission) kept us informed every step of the way. We have bought and sold several houses in our many years and Rana is the best agent we have ever worked with.


05/02/2014 - mary hudalla

Rana was everything we could have dreamed up in a realtor and more! She made our relocation from Chicago to Gainesville absolutely seamless. She was extremely responsive to all forms of communication and worked with our limited visiting schedules to help us select the perfect home for our family. Rana's assistance didn't stop there! She helped coordinate all inspections, remote closing, and contracting to make our home perfectly move-in ready the day we arrived (She even had all household essentials and started filling the refrigerator and pantry for us!). We cannot recommend her enough if you are looking to buy a home.


04/30/2014 - user2789399

Rana is very professional, knowledgable and fun. She was always ready and open to listen to our needs with good guidance and advice in return. We will totally recommend her as a realtor. You will find what you are looking for!


04/30/2014 - KathyAndersonLeverence

Rana helped us find the perfect home from across the country. She is professional, knowledgable about the community and she was prompt and available. She made our move so much easier.
