Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Gino Bello, Gerry Magnarelli and staff are absolute Westchester real estate superstars! Having both worked with them personally and referred them on multiple occasions now, it's easy to see why the Gino Bello team is a leader in the Westchester real estate market. They bring the experience, (many transactions handled) diligence and expert marketing and negotiating skills you need when you are buying or selling a home.

Gino Bello and his associate Gerry Magnarelli are by far the best realtors I could've ever asked for. I was looking to relocate from Brooklyn to White Plains, and they helped me to purchase my first place. From the beginning it was apparent that they were very passionate and knowledgeable about their job. They were honest, patient, and anticipated my needs when I didn't know that they even existed yet. My journey to home ownership was plagued by some hurdles; some seen and others that left me feeling devastated. As a result, there were many times I wondered whether to just throw in the towel. They never let me do that though. They worked tirelessly on my behalf, always keeping in touch with me to see how things were going. One of the things that I appreciated was that they made me feel valuable as a buyer and not just another potential sale to them. They took the time to get to know me, both on a professional and personal level. I love the tight knit crew that they have established. I never once felt stressed, or out of my element thinking that I'm moving to a new place and basically don't know anyone. They recommended some of the greatest people that I've had the pleasure of working with- Frank, Adele, and John just to name a few. Even after my purchase, I can still call them with any questions/ concerns and not feel like I'm being a bother. It was truly my pleasure working with them. They'll be my agents for life. Would never dare work with anyone else!

Gino and his team are absolutely fantastic. Their knowledge of the Westchester market is unparalleled, and they are extremely supportive and responsive through every step of the sales process. This was our first experience buying/selling real estate and Gino/Gerry made it very easy for us. We were selling a relatively old house, and despite that had over 20 showings in the first week and multiple offers shortly thereafter. Don't think this would've been possible without their dedication. I would highly recommend Gino and his team for anybody looking to buy or sell their home.

When we were looking to move out of NYC and buy our first home, we went with Gino's team based on a friend's recommendation. We also went to several open houses on our own, and when we said we were working with Gino, the reactions from the showing agents made it obvious that he's quite the bigwig in the industry. Gino's wife was very pregnant/had a baby while we were in the process, so we mostly dealt with his colleague and good friend Gerry. We really liked Gerry. We jokingly called him the Dream killer because he would point out things that we should be wary of that could bite us (or cost us lots of money) down the road. We really liked that he was looking out for us rather than trying to make a quick sale. Once we found the house, Gerry recommended how to proceed to make the offer and navigated through some shenanigans the seller played. They recommend a bunch of great people too. We went with the mortgage servicer he recommended, who held our hand through every step and made it go through without a hitch. I hear so much about closings being stressful and issues coming up, but this guy made it completely smooth (and our lawyer, who was great and reasonably priced and also came based on Gerry's recommendation, said he's never had an issue closing on a house that our mortgage guy handled). He even recommended an agent for homeowner's insurance, and we got a rate from him (also got an auto policy) that was far below every other quote we got. Heck, we're having renovations done and after meeting with several contractors, we're using the guy Gerry recommended (someone he arranged to have meet us at a house that we weren't even really interested in, but that needed some updating that other houses we might see might need, just so we would know what would be involved in possible future renovations). Our monthly mortgage/tax payment is less than the rent on NYC apartments we considered. And we have equity. And a yard (and a swing set, and a sandbox, and a garden...). I highly recommend Gino's team to anyone making the move.

As we interacted with Gino in our search for a house, it quickly became clear why Gino was so good at what he did. His aim was not to just sell us a house, but to ensure we got the house of our dreams. During the entire search process, he never hesitated to advise us on what would work and what would not be a prudent choice for us. He was very knowledgeable on locational benefits, taxes, hidden costs, electrics etc. As we walked through houses in our search, it was comforting to observe Gino watch our expressions as we looked at houses as he tried to understand what we really needed and not just what we were able to articulate. At times when we struggled to make a decision, he made it easier with his response of "maybe this has everything you're looking for, but I don't think you've fallen in love yet, we need to keep looking."
Today, thanks to Gino we are living in our dream house.

From our very first conversation with Jenifer about what we were looking for in a house, we felt confident that we were in excellent hands. Jen was nothing but professional, friendly, warm, and extremely knowledgeable, and through our entire process of finding the right house for us, she never made us feel pressured or rushed. Jenifer was very patient with us, as we were searching for many, many months and passed on several houses during that time. The whole time, she always did her best to make herself available to us and answer our million questions with clear cut answers and a positive attitude. She was flexible with her time to show us houses, and often met us at a showing in the evening due to our work schedules. She always had a smile and never made us feel that we were inconveniencing her. Thanks to Jen and how hard she worked for us, we are now in a house that is truly a HOME, and one that we see ourselves growing in for many years to come. Jenifer is truly the best there is, and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to really find the home of their dreams! We are so grateful to her and truly feel we would not have landed our house if we had been working with anyone else! She is simply the best!!

Jenifer was very helpful and very easy to deal with. She made my first time home buying experience very easy. I recommend Jenifer to anyone selling or buying a property. You will be very satisfied. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Jenifer was kind, courteous, and attentive to our needs. She worked hard to understand what we were looking for in a house, and was flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Jenifer, and have already given her contact information to someone in the area who is also looking for a house.

We bought a single family home in New Rochelle this past year and Jenifer helped us navigate the process with impressive expertise and heart. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions, but she walked us through every step of the way and made herself available whenever we needed. She also connected us to her network of local expert specialists, which helped us make the right decisions along the way. We loved working with Jenifer and getting to know her. We would not hesitate to work with her again, and highly recommend her services.

When we bought our home 3 years ago we were new to the location. Jenifer's guidance through the process, and her knowledge of the local area proved absolutely invaluable. We've kept in touch since and would not hesitate to ask her to represent us in the future.
