With 12 years of experience in the New York City residential rentals and sales market, Giovanni Castro is the broker for you! A seasoned, hardworking agent for buyers and sellers alike, “Gio” – as he is affectionately known by his peers – takes pride in the fact that he would never recommend a property that he wouldn’t love to live in himself. Prior to landing with Compass, Gio was an agent at Corcoran and Chief Operating Officer (COO) for New York Living Solutions, LLC. He later went on to open his own boutique real estate firm, Brown Castro Realty. With a degree in finance from a premier university under his belt as well as the fiscal acuity developed during his time at New York Living Solutions, Gio combines his gift for numbers with a natural passion for real estate that promotes confidence within his customers throughout every aspect of the real estate transaction.
In today's climate of exorbitantly high-priced rentals, many people new to the New York City real estate environment are caught at a crossroads – many can't decide whether renting or buying into a townhouse, co-op or condominium is right for them. In response, Gio has dedicated himself to assisting clients with figuring out what would make the best use of their financial resources. Gio will crunch all of the numbers involved to make sure your move is worth the investment. That's why he is known as the “hardest working broker in the biz.”
Following such success, it was natural that one of Manhattan’s largest real estate firms – Compass – came calling when they sought both a real estate marketing wizard and a breath of fresh air within their organization. Together, Giovanni Castro and Compass are now a winning team that pairs gifted salespeople with eager customers who demand the best New York City has to offer.
As a native New Yorker, husband, and father of three young children, Gio understands better than anyone the hard work involved in striving to achieve a high quality of life in New York. “The Big Apple is a demanding place to work,” he says. “Coming home to a place you love makes all the difference in the world.” A gifted athlete and Lehigh University alumnus, Gio enjoys spending time with his family, playing basketball, golf, skiing, exercising, cooking and fishing in his spare time.
