About

Gino Bello

NYS RE Associate Broker

For Gino Bello, if his heart isn’t in it, he just can’t do it. That’s why it was a relatively easy decision to leave his accounting job at KPMG to pursue a career as a realtor. “From the time I was pretty young, I knew two things: I loved real estate and I wanted my own business.”

So, at the age of 25, Gino began making his way in an industry where 92% of his colleagues don’t succeed. “That’s what drove me. I refused to fail.” And, it didn’t take long for him to realize he’d truly discovered his passion, and a deep commitment to his craft. “Two weeks after I got my realtor’s license, I changed my license plate to ‘Top Realtor.’ Sure, I got laughed at, but my goal was to be the best at what I do.”

Fast forward 15 years, and Gino is among the top real estate agents in Westchester County. Behind him is a wildly successful team-based business he built from scratch with Gerry Magnarelli, his childhood best friend from the Bronx. He boasts about 1000 homes sold over the last 15 years, and knows the ins and outs of buying and selling in Westchester like the back of his hand. Calling him “straightforward” and a “pleasure to work with,” clients return to Gino again and again, relying on his expertise, his patience, and above all, his integrity. “I have no trouble sleeping at night because no matter what, the client comes first, not the commission.”

Married to his college sweetheart, whom he met at Fordham University, this ambitious boy from the Bronx feels right at home in White Plains where he’s raising three kids. “Every time I make a decision, I ask myself, what would my family think?” In this emotionally-charged business of complex but rewarding life-changing decisions, “there will always be rainstorms,” he says, “but doing the right thing is what matters to me.” And, for this accountant turned top realtor, “I just don’t want to do anything else.”

Client Testimonials

Gino is voted best realtor in Westchester for a reason! We had an excellent experience working with Gino to buy our recent home. He is smart, responsive, honest (candidly pointed out the pros/cons of every house we viewed with him), has an exceptional network and relationship with other realtors (which can make a difference in a competitive buying market), and he is completely low pressure and truly wants his clients to be happy with the most important purchase they will make in their lives. For those who think that realtors are a "commodity" - think again! A great realtor like Gino has the ability to get you the best possible price using every available strategy and make sure that you are making a smart investment. Buying a home is also an emotional experience with lots of ups/downs in the process and Gino was always there for us and backed us 100% as he guided us through the process. I purchased my home through Gino and when I am ready to sell, you can bet I will be listing with him as well. Go with Gino as your realtor and you really can't go wrong...I highly recommend working with him!

Throughout the entire home buying process Gino was competent, helpful, and responsive to our needs. We were involved in a few properties that could have potentially been our new home which is not easy for the agent, considering the amount of time it takes two show multiple properties, multiple times. However, this was no issue for Gino as, from beginning to end he was the consummate professional. I highly recommend working with him.

Fantastic to work with Gino and his team. Made us feel very comfortable during what could be a very stressful process. Gino and his team took the time and had the patience to show us countless properties until they found the one that exactly suited our needs. I couldn't have asked for a better partner to find us the exact home we had been looking for and to sell our existing property quickly and painlessly. We got the price we were looking for with only being on the market for 10 days. Highly recommend this team!
