Welcome to my page! I am blessed to work as a COO with the most professional agents in Northeast Florida. 

    In a sense, Mona Lee Gardella has been
    in real estate for most of her life. She has resided in a total of eight states
    ranging from Michigan to Hawaii and has lived in a total of seven homes in the
    Jacksonville-area alone. Being a wife to a (now retired) career Naval Officer,
    she has experienced first-hand the physical, mental and emotional strain
    associated with packing up her loved ones and all of their belongings. Thus,
    she realizes the inherent value of a great real estate professional.




    She entered the real estate industry as a second
    career to elementary education during a time that many agents were leaving it.
    She was warned that it wasn't a good time to start. In response to this
    challenge and due to her tremendous work ethic, she sold $3.5 million in real
    estate her first year and was named "Rookie of the Year." More than a
    decade later, Gardella still loves the business and excels as a member of the
    Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty management team, having been promoted to Director
    of Market Development for Fleming Island and Oakleaf in 2015. In 2018, she also
    assumed managerial duties at the Avondale office. Success in this industry is
    contingent on hard work, and she has always prided herself on going the extra
    mile.




    Promoted to Chief Operating Officer of Coldwell
    Banker Vanguard Realty in 2019, Gardella uses her expertise and passion for
    real estate to mentor new agents in their careers and also help seasoned agents
    stay relevant and expand upon their previous success. She is proud to be part
    of a brokerage that makes its agents' success the primary business objective.
    She truly believes a leader must also be a servant and is honored to serve the
    agents in her care.




    In addition, serving the community means more to
    Gardella than helping people buy and sell real estate. She loves her community
    and enjoys spending her extra time giving back to it. She is a past president
    of CBV Cares, a nonprofit organization founded by CBV agents, the board Vice
    President of the nonprofit organization, Quigley House, has served on the
    School Advisory Council for Thunderbolt Elementary and Green Cove Junior High
    School and the Board of Trustees at Orange Park United Methodist Church.   Mona is a proud Rotarian, currently serving
    as President of her club and has served on steering committees for Tennis 4
    Cancer and Clay County Strides Against Breast Cancer. She also is a 6 year past
    member and past Chairman of the Clay County Utility Authority Board of
    Supervisors and is a graduate of Leadership Clay. Each of these roles has allowed
    Gardella to stay connected with her community and give back to others.
