Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Gino was the ultimate partner to us during our home sale and search. He was with us and available through every step in the process. Given the current housing market and the unique issues with our home, we had a lot of challenges, but Gino was relentless in finding a buyer and placing us in a new home that better met our needs. He was always available to answer our questions, provide strategic counsel and find solutions. If you’re looking to buy, sell or rent in Westchester County – I really can’t imagine why you would choose anyone else.
H. & A. Mirza – Bronxville, NY (Chester Heights)
My husband and I bought our home through Gino, and we were extremely pleased with the service he provided. He never tried to sell us on a place just to sell it, but instead encouraged us to only buy a place if we absolutely felt it was the right fit for us. He was less interested in his commission and “closing the deal” then he was in our overall happiness and satisfaction, and we were very appreciative of that. There was never a time that Gino was unable to meet with us, and he was very flexible, and worked around our schedules, to show us different homes. Gino deserves his reputation as one of Westchester’s top realtors. I intend to recommend that everyone I know who is considering buying or selling a home to give Gino a call.

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.
E. Aldridge & S. Ricker – Ossining, NY
I worked with Gino to buy my condo and my home in Harrison NY. During both instances, Gino was very patient with my constant questions and requests to view homes. He always gave me very good advice, and always put me first. Gino is a subject matter expert at the Westchester housing market and his team is top notch.
M. Genadri – Harrison, NY
Selling a home you love in this uncertain market is daunting, but Gino Bello made it (almost) painless. Since we only had one shot at this, my wife and I interviewed a number of realtors, but when Gino came in, we instantly knew he was the One. He was polite, prepared and very polished and he knows the business. Our home sold in LESS than a week! He and his associate, Gerry Magnarelli, advised us on pricing, staging and guided us through every phase of the process – including helping us find a great contractor for painting and other light pre-sale touches. When I emailed or called, they responded. When we got several offers he told us how to handle it and he was right. My wife and I are very happy we chose him and his team. Gino is Primo!
M. & S. Cerulli – Hartsdale, NY (College Corners)
Gino helped us find the perfect house for us. He is very knowledgeable and responsive. Whenever I had a question, he would always return my calls/e-mails very promptly. He is very friendly and I would highly recommend him to any home buyers out there. I have worked with other real-estate agents before, but he is simply the best!
K. Lee – White Plains, NY
We were extremely happy with Gino’s professionalism, efficiency and responsiveness. Gino had a focused and effective plan for the quick sale of our house at an optimum price. We were very pleased with the outcome and would readily recommend Gino to anyone looking to purchase or sell a house.
C. Hastie – White Plains, NY (Fisher Hill)
This is the second time I have dealt with Gino Bello. The first time I was the buyer and the second time I was the seller. Both times the transactions went very smoothly. Gino and the entire staff at Gino Bello Homes are extremely very knowledgeable and professional. They answered all of my questions and concerns and were always available to take my call or answer a text message. I have complete confidence that I received the best advice and achieved the best available sale or purchase price. In addition, Gino recommended the attorney, Frank Salvi, who handled the closing. I would not even consider using another realtor in the future and would highly recommend Gino and his associate Gerry Magnarelli.
A. Orlando – White Plains, NY (Battle Hill)
Gino is knowledgeable, professional, personable and hard working. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with Gino and his team. My husband and I purchased our first home and the process was seamless thanks to Gino and team. I highly recommend using him as your realtor.
V. & A. Conde – Hawthorne, NY
My wife and I couldn’t have been happier with Gino serving as our broker for the home we purchased. To say he added value is an understatement. If you have the opportunity to hire Gino, you would be crazy to hire someone else. He was professional, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and the opposite of pushy. From beginning to end, he provided the highest level of service, and we felt that he truly had our best interests at heart. He was our strongest advocate throughout the entire process, including during the closing, and even for our renovations after closing. He had more knowledge, experience and connections than anyone else we encountered while buying our home (including the bankers, the seller’s broker, the attorneys and the contractors). And he was a joy to work with. We usually don’t write these reviews, but had to here because Gino went above and beyond for us.
