Coral is more than a seller of homes, she is an enthusiastic and generous doer who has complete empathy for the people in her life. She’s been described as tenacious, direct, curious and loyal. She expects the best from people, most of all herself. Having a childhood that began in Las Vegas, stopped over in South Africa and ended in a small town in Southern Arkansas, prepared her for not only understanding the complex emotions involved in moving, but helped her become a sponge to learning and thriving in drastically different cultures. The diversity of her friends, foods and client base is all an amazing dividend of this unique path as a child.
For 17 years, Coral has been a happy Arlington resident and homeowner, driving the streets, trying to learn the method to the madness of the street names, finding the best way to get from Arlington to Oakton and back during rush hour, exploring the parks with her kids and dog and hiking the trails along the Potomac whenever possible. She is blown away by the beauty of this area and an enthusiastic ambassador for living in Northern Virginia. When she is not obsessing about real estate or her family, she’s likely to be found dining al fresco, shopping or listening to Pod Save America.
Coral knows the chaos of moving can be unsettling, but she understands that home can be anywhere life leads you, and helps people find where they’re meant to be. Whether it’s first time home buyers, move up sellers and buyers second or third homes, downsizing sellers, or investors, Coral will navigate the complexities of the Northern Virginia real estate market for you with a direct and snarky sense of humor and great dose of reality.
She’s been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, and Arlington Magazine as a top agent in the area, named as a most influential agent in the nation and recognized for her innovative approach to real estate by Inman News and a regular panelist at their Connect Conference. Coral gives back by donating each month to Giveback Homes, volunteering for animal rescue organizations, her kids’ schools and by serving on the board of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors.
John Gundlach, who she met in Detroit while they both worked at Young and Rubicam, is her better half, personal ad man, and has been by her side supporting her dreams since 1997, and keeps her clients well fed with home made chocolate chip cookies. After moving to San Francisco and getting married in Sonoma, they moved to DC and they live in Arlington with their two super hero, pastry chef in training sons, Jackson and Logan, dog Chloe, and Instagram stars, cats Harry and Tony.
