Request Information

Gail vacationed on Block Island as a child, due to her father's family ties, moved to the Island as a young adult, and then became a year round resident in 1984.

Gail obtained her Real Estate License in January of 1985, hired by Blake and Michele Phelan.  She became the Rentals Manager in 1987 and continued to work for the Phelans for a total of 12 years.

Gail launched Ballard Hall Real Estate in October of 1997.  She then purchased Phelan Real Estate in December of 2000.  The business has grown due to the longevity of her relationship with the Phelans and her staff who have joined along the way.

Gail has enjoyed becoming a part of the community.  She was on the Board of Canvassers for 11 years and continues to serve as Treasurer on the Fred Benson Scholarship Committee and The Block Island Lions Club. She served on The Block Island Conservancy for 8 years and is now serving as a Trustee to the Rhode Island Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.

Gail and her family truly enjoy their life on Block Island along with grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles.  She loves to travel with her husband Geoff and son Griffen, and upon the return of each trip recognize their comfort in the fact that this is the place they have chosen to call home.
