Our Story

Hello, we are Gabriel and Stephanie Nogalez; a husband and wife real estate duo who since 2015 has helped clients in San Diego, sell, purchase and manage properties across San Diego County. Let us share with you how we entered into the appliance repair business world. It was a true gift from God! While Gabriel was in deployment serving the U.S Air Force Reserves, his wife called an appliance company to repair their refrigerator that stopped working. After the husband’s return, because of Gabriel's service to this country; the business owner offered this couple the opportunity to take over his business for an exchange of a 6-month internship. Can you believe it! During that time, Gabriel was able to be mentored and learned all the ropes of the business. In August 2022, we were given as a gift the book of business from this amazing U.S Ranger, Todd Johnson who operated Appliance Science locally in San Diego for 15 years and decided to move out of state for his retirement. This huge blessing could not have come at a better time, COVID had majorly impacted many businesses; the real estate market took a turn in this country, and Red Ink Appliance Service was born. The business evolved into a brand new LLC, now operating as We Work to Give, LLC. We are honored to now be business owners of this growing gem. After taking a big leap of faith and a little bit of push from our mentors, we hired our first employee; currently we have grown to 3 part-time employees. This upcoming August we will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary having helped 475 clients with their appliance needs.

Currently Gabriel and Stephanie run two local businesses whose heart is rooted in always giving back, impacting our communities, giving 10% of all our profits, mentoring young adults to acquire skills sets that will be beneficial to them personally and professionally; while helping them establish a professional career. Whether you have real estate questions or appliance needs, we are here for you! Thank you for supporting our vision, we look forward to continuing to service you!
