bio2Gina Ragot, Office Manager
Gina (Severino) Ragot is the Office Manager of A Classic Touch Painting and a Broker-Associate at Karlhaus Realty. Gina is a native to the Daytona Beach area, born at Halifax Hospital to well-known local business owners Budd and Linda Severino.  Gina is no stranger to hard work and dedication. Her ambition and work ethic were acknowledged at the age of 17 when the Daytona News-Journal published an article naming Gina a “Rising Star”.  What was once considered a “dizzying schedule” of going to school full time, working in the evenings, riding her horse, participating in sports and other extra curricular activities, competing in various competitions and making time for her family and friends is now Gina’s normal everyday life.  
Gina has always worked to support herself and her horse. Her first job was at local restaurant Long Horn Steakhouse.  She began as a hostess at the age of 15 and worked her way up the ladder to server and trainer.  After graduating early at the head of her class, Gina accepted a position at two sister apartment communities in Jacksonville. She was responsible for leasing the apartments and taking care of the leasing offices.  This opportunity sparked Gina’s love for Real Estate. She enjoyed property management so much that she decided to get her Real Estate License. At the age of 21, Gina returned home to Daytona to help her family’s business, Budd Severino Advanced Home Exteriors, Inc.  
While working full time to help run her father’s business, she procured her Real Estate license and began practicing as a Sales Associate for First Class Properties.  Her passion for Real Estate grew and she then acquired her Broker’s License.
Gina Ragot currently owns A Classic Touch Paining with her husband Maurice Ragot.  Together they built a reputable painting and home improvement company that was voted “Best Around” in 2011, 2012. 2013 & 2014 Readers Choice Awards. She was the Broker/Owner of SEI Realty, Inc. and successfully handled numerous real estate transactions of all kinds. Her clients sing her praises for the amount of effort and dedication she puts into every person and home she deals with. “I want this to be as stress free and as fun as possible.  I listen to my clients’ every need to make sure our time is productive, and the end result is success” says Gina.  
Gina and Maurice are proud parents of two beautiful children.  Gina still has her horse and rides as often as possible.  Instead of the room full of ribbons and trophies, she now prides herself with letters of recommendation from her clients. “She has a high level of professionalism with a competitive edge” says one of Gina’s clients.
As you can see, not much has changed. Gina is still an energetic, motivated, dedicated girl. She is excited for both of her businesses and all the wonderful opportunities in front of her and her family.
