Draisa Gale

Draisa Gale is Vice President of Columbia Equities, Inc., a South Florida real estate investment company where she concentrates on the design and restoration of historic properties in Miami Beach.

Draisa has participated in many innovative restoration projects and, in 2001, her company was presented with the City of Miami Beach Certificate of Appreciation Annual Beautification Award for best historic restoration. Perhaps her most rewarding restoration project came when her company entered into a public-private partnership with the City of Miami Beach.  Upon completion, she placed more than half of the newly renovated apartment units at rents affordable to those tenants of low and moderate income as determined by HUD.

Draisa is passionate about causes for women and children especially in her native Colombia and currently resides in Boca Raton.
