Hernando resident named a “Top 25 Travel Agent in the U.S.” by Travel Agent magazine

Hernando, Fla. (November 28, 2017) – Dream Vacations Franchise owner and Vacation Specialist Gail Pastor was recently named a “Top 25 All Star” by Travel Agent magazine. 

To be considered, nominees needed 10 or more years’ experience in the travel business, generate at least $1 million in annual sales for their agency and community involvement. Other qualities of those selected include skillful, savvy problem solvers and out-of-the-box thinkers.

“I am so humbled to be included on this prestigious list of the Top 25 Travel Agents in the U.S.,” said Pastor. “I truly love what I do and treat every vacation as if it were my very own. There is no greater feeling than to help make my client’s dream vacations come true and hear their vacation stories when they return home.”

Pastor began her travel career 25 years as one of the first travel agency franchise owners with CruiseOne (now Dream Vacations), and her accolades over the years include being recognized as a Franchisee of the Year and a member of the organization’s Circle of Excellence of Top-Producing Agents. She is active in her community, particularly with children’s organizations, American Cancer Society and her church.

“Gail is always our biggest champion and is a mentor to other agents, including her daughter and business partner Cheri. Together, they have become a mother/daughter powerhouse and exemplify the key traits of what we look for in a travel agent and as a person. That is integrity, passion, creativity and ingenuity,” said Debbie Fiorino, Senior Vice President of Dream Vacations.
