Empathy. Experience. Connectedness. Commitment: Gail's clients know that her greatest strengths lead to their windfall during real estate decision-making. A #1 ranked agent in El Dorado County with roots in the Bay Area, Gail is known for her creative solutions to real estate's puzzles.
It’s one thing to be awed by Gail’s marketing and negotiating skills or by her suite of pre-listing services that result in shorter market times and higher sale prices. At least as meaningful is Gail’s deep grasp of what drives real estate success in El Dorado County.
Having begun her luxury real estate career in the Bay Area’s Palo Alto before relocating to El Dorado Hills in 2015, Gail understands, firsthand, the particular factors motivating buyers in El Dorado County.
And when she partnered with Val Turner in 2018, Gail and the entire market quickly realized how the team’s combined expertise puts each of their clients in a position of strength. Through the partnership, the team gained Val’s marketing communications expertise and her knowledge of working with investors.
When people speak with Gail’s clients and meet her industry partners, they are reminded how important it is to work with an experienced, connected agent who thoroughly understands the nuances of the local market.
Gail’s consistently high rankings indicate far more than her production volume. Being the #1 team in El Dorado County, with Gail as #1 ReMax agent in the region, reflects the fact that Gail is consistently embedded in the market. She has developed and earned the respect of industry partners and tradespeople who know that her expertise, efficiency, connections, and service-minded approach translate into results. And she shares her network and knowledge with the clients she represents.
When you start working with Gail, she will be in touch regularly, often answering questions before you think of them. She gives you the reasons for every suggestion she makes and devotes herself to ensuring that everyone always knows where things stand. There are no surprises on timeline or on what to expect in the days and weeks to come.
In addition, each member of The Turner-DeMarco team not only has their clients’ backs, but they support one another in exceeding every client’s needs and expectations. That means that, when working with Gail, you have access not only to her knowledge, expertise and connections, but to the resources and knowledge of her entire team.
It means that, when something comes up, you’ll receive immediate feedback and sound choices about how to address the decision-making process.
And it means that, when you’re ready to move to the next chapter in your story, Gail is ready to listen, learn and exceed your needs.
*Ranked as the #1 RE/MAX Gold agent in Greater Sacramento, Gail DeMarco-Bolger closed over 100 transactions in 2020 for a total of $85 million in sales.
Innovation. Organization. Attentiveness: The people who rely on Valerie Turner during some of
life’s biggest decisions know that they are getting the straight story, sound advice, and reassurance. And with that, they gain the knowledge and confidence to make smart decisions and close profitable transactions.
For more than a decade before entering real estate sales, Val learned the industry’s ins and outs while working as a marketing director and corporate trainer for a West Coast REIT. That experience, combined with her marketing communication degree and incredible instincts, positions Valerie – and her clients – for imminent success.
Her consistently high rankings prove Val’s point that the busiest agents are the best agents. She and the members of the Turner DeMarco Group are deeply embedded in the market and well known for achieving creative solutions amid the complexities of real estate sales.
Val truly understands the buyers and sellers in the Greater Sacramento Area and she has a special appreciation for El Dorado County. Think of her listings as buyer-magnets; she tailors each one to reach the ideal buyer relocating here from places like the Bay Area and Southern California.
As a mother of school-age children and a toddler, she’s living the life that buyers are seeking within the beautiful communities of El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Folsom, Rescue, Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay, Loomis and the rest of the Sacramento region.
You might say Val is married to the industry, literally; her husband is a mortgage broker. She is extremely attuned to the market, investment opportunities and mortgage options, and she regularly shares her insight with the Turner DeMarco group and the clients they serve.
Val fully embraces the Northern California lifestyle that she has been blessed to promote for buyers and sellers since 2007. When she’s not showing homes or creating impact for listings through her design and pre-listing expertise, you can find her hanging out with family, camping, dirt biking, snowboarding, paddle boarding, boating, traveling, and enjoying all things that life in Northern California offers.
Having served hundreds of buyers and sellers over the years, and have witnessed all kinds of market scenarios, no residential real estate situation can surprise Val. She’s equipped with the right resources and the perfect attitude to handle anything she and her clients will face in a competitive market.

When you call on Jay to help you, you can be assured you have the right Realtor for the job. His many repeat clients refer to Jay as someone you can count on from start to finish—not only in a transaction but for years to come. A California native who was born in Southern California and raised in Roseville, Jay now calls Granite Bay his Home. He graduated from Oakmont High School before earning a bachelor's degree in business with a focus on logistics management from the University of Nevada, Reno.
After more than four years managing sales for an automotive publisher in Southern California, Jay (a self-described “car guy”) and his wife, Christina, decided it was time to improve their quality of life. Naturally, this meant a move back to Roseville, where they could be near family so they could start a family of their own. Their daughter Eliza was born soon after in 2004 and their son Calvin was born a few years later in 2007.
By 2004, Jay realized that he was ready for a change in his career and decided to transfer his people and service skills to a Real Estate business. The only things Jay likes more than cars are houses, so it made complete sense. Jay knew that there would be lots of competition and that he would have to be exceptional to be successful. Failure was not an option, as he had a family at home depending on his success. He knew he had to give the best service to build the relationships needed to make it in this business.
“Every time someone entrusts me to help them sell or buy a home, I consider that a blessing from God,” says Jay. “After more than 16 years in this business, I knew it was time to amplify things and offer even more to clients and the community.”
To Jay, the opportunity to join forces and build a team with Gail DeMarco and Val Turner is an enormous honor.
“Now all of us are in even better positions to share our blessings with clients,” he says. “This is an impressive, highly trained, and very talented team of Realtors. I’m thrilled to be a part of it and I am so excited for our team’s future together.”
Hard work, devotion to clients’ needs, dependability, and excellent follow-through have positioned Jay as one of the top Realtors in the Sacramento Valley. Given his ongoing referrals from current and past clients, Jay works the whole Sacramento Valley but loves when he gets the opportunity to work close to home in areas such as Granite Bay, Roseville, Rocklin, and Loomis.
His clients and business partners know Jay as a local area expert. They all know that they can count on him and his team with their real estate needs and that when they refer Jay and his team to their family and friends they will get the best service. They know that Jay always treats his clients' homes as if they are his own, applying the golden rule to each client relationship. With their best interests at heart, he provides transparency, honest guidance, and only the best advice for clients. Having grown up in Roseville, raising his kids in Roseville/ Granite Bay, and working the valley since January 2005, Jay possesses the experience and insight to represent clients across the entire Greater Sacramento Area.
“I truly love this area. I pride myself on understanding each corner of it and the ways that different communities can meet different buyers’ and families’ needs.” he says. “When I’m working with sellers, it’s fun to put that knowledge to use to target our marketing to the perfect buyer.”
Jay’s humility and genuine care for others define his approach to real estate and the relationships he’s built in the community. Continually ranked among the Top 10 Realtors in the area, his clients, referral partners, and team members know he’s an excellent listener whose first goal is to exceed people’s needs.
“My clients’ success is my success; that’s all that matters. It is a win-win,” says Jay. In both his personal life and his professional life, Jay is grateful every day.
“Next to my family and friends, my greatest passions are traveling, enjoying our boat, playing with cars, and helping my clients with their real estate needs.
“We need to enjoy this great gift called Life,” he adds. “It’s a good life and every day is a blessing. We should make the best of each of those days, making great memories in every one of them. We don’t get any do-overs!”
