“Real estate flows through her veins like water,” says Block, 53. “If you think she’s just this little old lady, watch out.”

Freddie Molson, a competing agent for another Florida company, says some brokers brazenly try to recruit his clients right in front of him. Not Abrams.

“I think she’s the type of agent that other agents should aspire to be,” he says.

Dan Lambert is part of an investment group that has worked with Gorbach on about 10 deals over the past decade. Next week, Lambert is scheduled to close on the sale of his mother’s condo, and Gorbach is his agent for that, too.

“I didn’t even know he was 90,” says Lambert, 52. “It’s a non-issue.”

Neither Abrams nor Gorbach intends to call it a career anytime soon. Abrams might get indignant if you even mention it.

“Are you kidding?” she says. “If I retired, it would be the end of me. I really believe real estate is what’s keeping me alive.”
