Jan and Terry became sweethearts after meeting at Lincoln High. They married and moved to Kansas City starting their careers as a Registered Nurse and in Manufacturing. Three children later, Lincoln and the "good life" became home again.
Jan started her Real Estate career in 1978 and was instantly successful, in fact so successful, she convinced Terry to get his license so he could share in the fun. "My twenty years in nursing gave me an edge to understand people, truly have empathy, patience, and most of all the ability to enjoy every day to it’s fullest," says Jan.
Over the years they have enjoyed helping clients find their dream homes and making long lasting friendships while working together through the buying and selling process. These same families once had babies in high chairs, now those babies are buying their dream homes through the Gabers. Many past customers have sold and purchased homes four or five times.
Terry enjoys fishing with lures, reading, exercising and painting in his spare time. Jan enjoys researching collectibles, music, cooking, and watching six grandchildren and one new great grandson grow.
They both look forward to date night, seeing movies, sharing time with family and friends, and their next Real Estate Appointment.

“Terry and Jan Gaber worked with my husband Lance and I to help us find our new home. I have to say that they are extremely patient people, as we were very picky home buyers and wanted to find a house that really felt like the perfect fit for us. It seemed like we could find something “wrong” with every house they showed us! However, Terry and Jan never became frustrated with us or seemed to want to give up. They kept telling us that our perfect home was probably coming on the market soon and that we’d just keep looking! They made us feel like they were willing to show us every home in Lincoln, if that is what it took! We were very impressed with their diligence to find us the right house for us and how friendly and patient they are. By the time we found and bought our home, we felt like Terry and Jan had become more like close friends of ours, rather than partners in a business transaction. They are just such warm people!
When putting in an offer on our new home, Terry and Jan really went to bat for us with a seller that was not initially very pleased with our offer. They were able to point out the many reasons that our offer was reasonable and warranted in the housing market at the time. We were thrilled with the price they were able to negotiate for us with the sellers and felt we were really able to purchase a lot of home for our money!
Terry and Jan also helped us to sell our previous house and, although there were many homes in our neighborhood for sale, somehow ours sold within 6 weeks! We were extremely satisfied with the way this was handled and elated to have our home sold much more quickly than the average house in our neighborhood at the time. They also helped us to negotiate a price that we felt was fair to us and that we were comfortable with accepting. We have since found out that many of the homes in our neighborhood that sold shortly after ours sold were for much lower prices and we feel so thankful that we had Terry and Jan on our side helping us to negotiate a reasonable price.
We received great communication from Terry and Jan in regards to our home closings. They made it so easy for us! They were always willing to meet with us when it was convenient for our schedules and worked with us to make sure we did not miss any important deadlines or forget any steps in the process. The entire home selling and home purchasing process went very smoothly and we know that most of the reason for that is due to Terry and Jan’s organizational skills, expertise, knowledge and experience in the real estate market. We were really lucky to have such amazing partners on our side! We really miss seeing them now that our sale/purchase are complete!”- Lance & Melinda Beck
