I’m Gabe Alford and have been a Putnam County native for all my life, 32 years to be exact. I was born and raised here locally and love the hometown vibe and the local community feel that you get just going out and about on your everyday errands. Living in various small areas of the county, such as Palatka, East Palatka, Bardin and Satsuma has given me hands on knowledge and experience of everyday life here in this great county and what it has to offer. Some of you may recognize me from my numerous years of managing and being your master mixologist at one of the most well-known places for locals to eat, drink and be merry, Corky Bell’s Restaurant. My passion for the food/hospitality industry allowed me to open a local food truck in the city of Palatka for a brief period known as “Grind and Drip Coffee Express,” that specialized in trendy coffee beverages and unique eats. In addition to my food truck, a good friend and I have also owned and operated an inflatable bounce house business that provided entertainment to locals at birthday parties and other unique events.
During my downtime, I love spending it with family, especially my two nuggets who keep me on my toes. There is never dull moment with these little guys. My significant other is a Registered Nurse at our local community hospital, where she provides comfort to many residents of the Putnam County area. As a family, the two of us love to give back to our local community. Whether, it be her providing treatment to sick patients or me accommodating someone into the sell or purchase of their first home. We want to see individuals succeed and live prosperous lives within our small, but growing hometown.
I am a go getter with an ambitious personality that is willing to do whatever it may take to get the job done. I strive in making sure that satisfaction is key. My work history throughout my years have proven this to be true. I can attest that hard work pays off. I enjoy seeing and making people happy and would love to be able to do that with the next purchase or sell of your home. If you, or anyone you may know has a real estate need, then I’m your guy. Feel free to give me a shout or shoot me a text (386) 937-6368. I look forward to helping individuals becoming happy homeowners.
