Get to know Gizo Ujarmeli Elena Naschke
The GEM Team Real Estate isn’t just our job — It’s our FIRST LOVE.
What does GEM stand for?
It stands for Gizo & Elena, the Matchmakers.
Together, Gizo and Elena LOVE matching people to their “just right” home. They know that finding a house is a very personal and emotional process. That’s why they’re committed to finding you real GEMs… instead of just looking. In fact, Gizo is known for saying:
Seeing a house is like going on a date… a House Date. You just KNOW when you’ve found “the right one” — and you fall in love. Something speaks to you from deep within.
Gizo and Elena’s underlying passion for Real Estate is evident in their energetic, can-do attitudes. And their sincere desire to use their time and talents to help others is apparent.
In fact, the entire GEM Team’s business acumen,unparalleled responsiveness, and sincere commitment to you and your needs — combined with their outstanding social media savvy — are just a few of the many reasons they continue to win recognition and industry awards within the Wausau community year after year.
They’re here to help you START YOUR OWN STORY of how you FELL IN LOVE with your new home.
So how did The GEM Team’s story begin? Read on…
It was love at first sight. (Would you expect anything less?)
Gizo saw Elena from across the room and just knew she was “the one.” Together, the couple became top-level figure skaters for the German National Team. Gizo, originally from Georgia (the country, not the state), is a 2x winner of Germany’s National Cup, taking the title in both 1991 and 1992. (You can click here to see a clip of him skating, if you’re interested.)
The couple soon married, and in 2000 they embarked on a global adventure together — moving from Germany to Wisconsin, making the Wausau community their home.
In 2001, Gizo and Elena started a figure-skating school offering professional-level competitive coaching and bringing expert coaches from abroad to the Wausau Area.
In 2005 — keeping with her family’s long history of 30+ years in the Real Estate industry — Elena became a Real Estate professional. A year later, Gizo fell in love with the industry himself and became a licensed Real Estate Broker.
