Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
About Giovanni
Giovanni Castro has spent the last 17 years "sinking buzzer beaters" in the New York City retail real estate industry. He cut his teeth as a salesperson at a brand-new firm when he first started. He quickly rose to Chief Operating Officer there, tasked with guiding newer agents looking to achieve success in the fast-paced world of New York City renting and buying. He even went on to acquire his very own boutique brokerage which he ran successfully for 4 years. At any given time as COO or Principal Broker there were 10-70 agents working under him. It follows that Gio has seen it all in this business.

After garnering an extensive amount of experience as well as success in residential real estate – Gio then started to take a look at the development and investment side of the industry. For the past 5 years, he has focused his energy on his network of former college classmates, contacts, friends, and anyone else expressing an interest in owning property. He currently owns over 14,000 square feet of residential and commercial real estate with an acquisition value of $4.2M and a current market value of $10.5M. In 2020, Giovanni notched sales of a little under $20 M and the number is rising for 2021.

It has gotten to the point where Gio no longer has many clients – but rather fans. His attention to detail and desire to position his clients to profit even in the worst fiscal climates make him an invaluable asset to those looking to keep their money safe and growing with the property. Gio currently has over $60 M in off-market homes in Brooklyn which is a big reason why most brokers call him first when they are looking for multi-family buildings in Brooklyn.

Gio's peers and fellow investors know him as a relentless worker and most importantly as an honest, upfront person. He excels by always telling his business partners what they need to know and never just what they want to hear – this approach keeps expectations in check and lofty goals attainable.

When not at work, Gio spends his free time coaching girls’ youth basketball and enjoying time at home with his wife and 3 kids. 6 of the girls he has coached over the years play D1 college basketball. He is also an alumni board member for Moravian Academy in Pennsylvania, as well as for his alma mater, Lehigh University.
