Gabby Benton

Chief Executive Officer, Founder

Gabby Boardman Benton is a lifelong Augustan who saw a need in the Masters housing rental business for a different approach- a boutique style company which focuses on providing an exemplary customer service experience for both her homeowners and her renters. Combining her experience in hospitality, special events, and real estate with her natural enthusiasm and outgoing personality, seven years ago, Gabby founded Made Fore a Pro.

Having grown up in the "backyard" of the National, Gabby has always been an avid golf fan. Her love for Augusta has led to a strong involvement in the community, including serving as a board member of the Augusta Training Shop, the Morris Museum of Art's Gala board, and the Wilson Family. She is a current member of the Augusta Country Club, Good Shepherd Church, Young Professionals of Augusta, and the Southeastern Tourism Board, among others.  In addition to Made Fore a Pro, Gabby is the Major Gifts Officer for University Health Care Foundation which keeps her pretty busy! 
Gabby's greatest joys are her two children, Wheatley and Robertson, five and four years old.

Office number

Virginia Claussen

Relationship Manager

Virginia Claussen is a native Augustan and Gabby’s cousin. She began working for Made Fore a Pro in March of 2016 when she moved home to Augusta after 5 years in Los Angeles where she worked as a brand manager for international high-end designers. Augusta is Virginia’s passion, and in addition to working with Made Fore a Pro when she is able to, she is a spine specialist/sales representative for Stryker Spine and the co-owner of Bardot Boutique in Columbia County.  Needless to say, she stays busy!  Virginia’s strengths are myriad, but one of our favorite things about her is her ability to remain calm and calm those around her. She’s outgoing, thoughtful, captivating, loving- the total package, and we are so lucky to have her!
