A Little Bit About Us
You’re special…that is why you should choose special people who know the market, who can analyze your options, anticipate your needs and – most important – deliver results.
We understand that clear, prompt communication is paramount in this process. You’re busy and you don’t want to spend time chasing after an agent. If you’re selling, you want prompt feedback about the last showing, and an update about how we’re marketing your property. If you’re buying, you want the reaction to your last offer or the results of an inspection.
Please meet the TEAM …
Gail Spada, TEAM Leader
Gail’s real estate career began in 1990 and it didn’t take long for Gail to discover her love for the real estate industry. In 2001, she began her real estate sales profession with Century 21 Alliance Realty in Spring Hill, FL.
In this age of ever-changing technology, laws and procedures, coupled with the quirky real estate market and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers, it is vital that real estate practitioners remain dynamic and capable of guiding their customers effectively.
Not only being a member of the National Association of REALTORS, Florida Association of REALTORS, Hernando County Association of REALTORS and the West Pasco Board of REALTORS®, Gail has focused on expanding her knowledge within the real estate industry. Over the years, she has attained the following designations and/or certifications: GRI, ePRO, AHWD, SFR, and OICP.
The GRI designation is reserved for the best and brightest in the industry, which Gail has proven to be time and again. With the increased reliance on the Internet for real estate transactions, Gail carries the ePRO certification, which means she has completed extensive training and is currently employing the latest online techniques and services for the benefit of her customers. To further show her commitment to the real estate industry, Gail earned the AHWD certification offered through the National Association of REALTORS®. Home sellers and buyers who work with a REALTOR® who has earned this certification know that they are working with a real estate professional who is trained to meet the needs of the county’s increasingly diverse population. Gail also understands that real estate is cyclical in nature, and has expanded her market reach to include the “investment side” of residential real estate. The OICP certification focuses on learning and understanding real estate principles for building “long-term wealth” using real estate investments as “long-term assets”. It is this well-rounded training and experience, coupled with her intimate knowledge of the Hernando County real estate market, that enables Gail to deliver results to the TEAM buyers and sellers.
Tina Schneegas, REALTOR®-Associate
Tina has been a Buyer Specialist with THE Gail Spada TEAM since 2004.

Tina’s husband, Mark, owns and operates the family’s electrical business, Suncoast Electric, LLC. With 3 grown daughters, Krystal, is married and has given them a granddaughter, Madelyn, “who is the light of their lives”. Krystal’s husband is serving our country in the United States Navy.

Phyllis Burroughs, Bookkeeper/Assistant
Phyllis has been a member of THE Gail Spada TEAM since July of 2010 and says she truly loves being part of the TEAM. She and her husband, Bill, moved to Spring Hill in 2005 from Erie, Pennsylvania, and love their Florida lifestyle as they are both avid golfers. Their children and grandchildren live near Erie, PA, and also in Colorado so they travel frequently and the flexibility Phyllis has with Gail is a real advantage. Although she started in Gail’s office as her bookkeeper, she now also maintains all the TEAM websites with current updated information. Phyllis is constantly learning new skills and acquiring a better understanding of the world of real estate. In 2011, Gail and her TEAM found Phyllis and Bill their Silverthorn dream home and quickly sold their former Spring Hill home. Phyllis says… “Call Gail and her TEAM if you are looking for the best!”
