Meet Gates...

I really believe that every person deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. This belief was formed in me in 1989 when I was a volunteer with the Georgia Tech chapter of Habitat for Humanity. I saw how a home can change a life. Since then I've dedicated my career to helping others have a place to call home. I am a HUD subject matter expert, and I have worked with over 60 nonprofit organizations across the country over the last 22 years. I help these non-profit housing groups ensure a strong and secure future for their residents. Read my full bio here.

Gates’ impressive level of knowledge and expertise, coupled with her calm approach to maintain the focus and momentum of all parties involved in the complex process of refinancing a Section 8 property, proved invaluable to Gwinnett Christian Terrace.  She is a brilliant consultant and a true advocate for the owner.
