"Let what you love be what you do!"

    A few years ago, I took those words to heart. With a leap of faith and a passion for homes, interior design, and helping people, I launched into a career that I love-real estate.

    As a real estate agent, I love getting to know my clients, listening to what's important to them, working hard to exceed their expectations, and building relationships that continue long after the time of closing.

    I believe that a person's real estate experience should be as smooth as possible, and clear communication is a big part of that. If people understand each step along the way, the process becomes much more enjoyable. Therefore, I provide my clients with the information and guidance they need to make decisions they feel 100 percent comfortable with from start to finish. After all, this should be an exciting time!

    In addition to real estate, I have a few more important loves in my life-three of them-my two sons and one daughter. I'm incredibly proud of my kids and love spending time with them. We've lived in the Omaha area for 21 years, and it's been a great place to call home. When I have free time, I enjoy working out, baking (now you know why I have to work out), watching sports, and spending time with family and friends.

    If you have been thinking about buying or selling a home, let me know how I can help. I get to experience such an incredible feeling every time I watch my clients discover they've just walked into their perfect home! Let's make it happen for you!

    If you want a realtor who makes you feel like you are the only one shes working with - that would be Sheila!!! Very attentive and quick to respond to your queries no matter what time of the day, flexible scheduling and same day showing was crucial as time is important in a sellers market.

    Sheila made my first home-buying experience seamless and stress-free. She took the time to answer my endless questions, and offered me guidance throughout the process.

If you're searching for someone who is not only knowledgeable, but truly cares about their clients, Sheila's the one for you! Kristen Buell 7/3/18
    Sheila is the best real estate professional I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She both helped us purchase our home and sell our former property. Sheila is professional, attentive, extremely knowledgeable, prepared and kind. She is a shrewd negotiator and had our home sold within hours due to property researched comps and physical preparation of our home for sale. She uses her team at Better Homes effectively and has a robust network of professionals to help with home related repairs, maintenance and remodels. The homes we bought and sold are located in the Dundee area and Sheila had an excellent understanding of the unique characteristics and challenges of dealing with older homes. John & Allison 1/18/19
    Sheila Gates is so personal, thoughtful, and genuinely cares about the house you buy! I cannot say enough good things about who she is as a realtor and person. Sheila made the house-buying process enjoyable and smooth. She was attentive to what we were looking for, easy to get ahold of, and made us feel like we were her top priority. Sheila will help you not only find your house, but your home! I recommend her to EVERYONE! Alex & Andy Miller 1/19/19
    Sheila is very knowledgeable about real estate and prices in the Omaha area. She gets information in a timely manner. Sheila also listens well to what you are looking for and creates searches that represents your needs. Finally, Sheila has great hustle which is something hard to find these days. Ryan and T 1/24/19
    Sheila was amazing in listing 2 of my properties and getting them sold pretty fast. What was amazing about the sale was that one of the properties had been labeled as a difficult property to sell. But Sheila did a wonderful job in getting it listed and sold at a very short time. Coming from a person who had lost patience with realtors, Sheila did an amazing job in building my trust back up. I will recommend her anytime. Thank you Sheila. --Tim B 3/12/20
    Sheila did an amazing job in all aspects of our home purchase process. She understood our needs, found properties that matched and helped evaluate fit and value after the showings. Sheila helped develop excellent negotiation strategies and saw them through on our behalf. She proactively and successfully organized all tasks and issues throughout the process in a timely fashion. I highly recommend Sheila as an agent for anyone buying or selling a home. --E&K 6/2/20
    She's the best. Helped us get into our home at the beginning of the pandemic. Sheila made multiple trips from Fremont to Omaha running paperwork to our Loan officer for me. If I had a question during our home tours, she would find the answer before I arrived back home. Her work ethic and genuine goodness is top notch. We were lucky to have her. --Drew and Michelle 6/4/20
    Sheila was great to work with. She walked us through our first home purchase. Sheila was always available for our texts when we had questions for her. If she didnt know the answer then she would find out for us. Thank you Sheila! --Ronnie and Kierra 7/3/2020
    I'm usually not excited to "give a review", but Sheila really deserves it. Her level of professionalism paired with her calm demeanor takes what is normally a stressful experience and makes it very exciting and enjoyable one. Sheila went above and beyond, more than once, when she really didn't have to just to help us find our dream home. If you are looking to buy or sell, Sheila is the one you need to contact! We couldn't be happier! Ryan & Amanda 9/8/2020

    Sheila was a fantastic realtor and we are so grateful to have connected with her for our home search. She was a diligent listener to what we were looking for and showed us properties that matched our family. Once we found our home, she went above and beyond to advocate for us throughout the contract/close process. We really felt taken care of and that our interests were being fought for. Could not recommend her enough! 9/92020
    Sheila helped me buy my first home in Omaha and was incredible at helping me navigate through the process as a first time home buyer. Sheila went above and beyond helping me get in touch with contractors and handy men to help with some of the renovations we were looking to make.
