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 moved 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 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 owing 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.

09/24/2019 - bharat balakrishnan

We moved to Gainesville in August 2018 and were introduced to Rana by a colleague. And we believe this has by far been one of the best decisions we have made (i.e.), to have Rana help us rent a home. Rana truly stands out in terms of her professionalism, work-ethic and incredible knowledge of the local market. More than anything, she went above & beyond and helped us through the entire journey, even after we rented the house. She has been one of our most trusted advisors and an honest friend. We believe that she is a true role-model for customer empathy - we have learnt quite a lot from her. We fully recommend her without batting an eye-lid ! She is quite simply the best !

My husband and I recently came to Gainesville and needed to purchase a home. Rana came highly recommended to us. After a wonderful experience, this is a recommendation that we would like to pass on! We knew little about Gainesville, the different neighborhoods and Florida in general. Rana has a multitude of experience and knows all of the ins and outs of this city (whether is it something house related or not!). We changed our minds regarding what we were looking for during our search. Rana patiently showed us many, many, many homes until we found the perfect one that we now call home! During the process, Rana always answered emails and phone calls immediately. There were times when we would call her to see a home and her response would be, "Are you free now?" If you are looking for professionalism, excellent knowledge about Gainesville and an agent with lots of experience-we highly recommend Rana.

We were very, very fortunate that our daughther's pre-k teachers knew and recommended Rana Schafer. She took her time looking over our home, inside and out, and made a few suggestions to improve appearance, which we followed. She used a very good photographer, and she staged our home with a few simple props that helped buyers visualize the potential. When we started getting multiple offers, Rana was our guide, offering excellent advice all the way to a smooth closing.

My wife and I would recommend her to our own family and friends, or anybody looking for an Alachua County realtor.
