Our Story

GSA Realty got it’s beginning back in 2008 with two founders, Chuck Gambone and Tommy Songer, and a vision for a different kind of real estate company.  We wanted to start a company where our agents were not “independent contractors” working under a managing broker, but instead bring together a cohesive group of inter-dependent real estate specialists working together to not only serve their clients but also the company as a whole.  We truly believe that our company, as a whole, is much greater than the sum of its parts when we are all working together.

At Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate - GSA Realty we follow and instill a lot of the principles outlined by some of the most influential business people of our time. The principals of Dale Carnegie and his lessons on how to treat people, both clients and co-workers.  Jim Collins, in his book Good to Great talks about hiring and working with the right people and how these people, if they work together, can go from being simply a good real estate company to being a GREAT one!  One last one, as explained in a book by Ken Blanchard, we strive to make all of our clients as well as our fellow agents Raving Fans of our company by providing better service and maybe something unexpected.

Describing some of the lessons we’ve learned from the mentors above, speaks to another one of our core values . . . Education.  From the first day, we knew it was important for us to strive to always Be Better!  We do this through education and constantly looking for knowledge and real-world experience to help us know our markets, our clients, and just about anything to do with real estate.  Referring back to our “inter-dependent” nature, we also know that if we don’t quite know the answer to your questions, I have a team of people right beside me that will and is happy to share their experience.

Our team has been serving the Central PA region for over 8 years now and has in that time built a respected reputation, both with our clients and with our pears in the real estate industry. The real estate business is changing and we are striving to be forward thinking and nimble to evolve with the times and trends with the ultimate goal of making the world of real estate seem much less daunting for you as our customer.

Client Testimonials

“I would not have found my forever home if it weren’t for the diligence of my real estate agent, Jodi Carts. She pinpointed exactly what I was looking for and kept me informed every step of the way. I feel she went way beyond the call of duty in meeting my needs, she worked relentlessly! She has ample knowledge of the Liberty Hill community that I now call home. I highly recommend her for all of your realty needs.” Mary Laura "Laurie" Jones - Liberty Hill at Boalsburg
"My family was relocating from Florida to the State College area 3.5 years ago for employment. We were unfamiliar with the area and naturally began to contact realtors to assist us in finding a rental with intentions on purchasing after our first year of living here. We were extremely disappointed in the level of service we received upon reaching out. We were not getting called back. We even had one realtor email back and tell us to check Craig's list!! The first email I sent to Karen Krupa of GSA was immediately responded to with a warm friendly response and a follow up phone call. We were relieved to find a professional to help us. Karen recommended a nearby hotel to stay during our first visit. Upon arrival of the hotel she had prepared a package of local attractions and information which was waiting at the front desk. This renewed our hope in finding the right realtor. Karen had also lined up several properties for us to look at while visiting. We eventually decided to purchase a home and in mid visit Karen happily showed us properties that fit our needs. After getting back to Florida we decided to buy a spec home which was being finished. Karen walked us through the entire process and kept on top of the progress that was happening on our new home. The extra time, care and concern that Karen showed to our family during the home hunting process went above and beyond any realtor we had ever worked with. If you're in the market for a new home or selling your home I would highly recommend Karen Krupa for her expertise as your personal realtor." The James Family - Bellefonte
