Gerry MagnarelliLicensed NYS Associate RE Broker / CT Real Estate Salesperson
As a partner at Gino Bello Homes, Gerry Magnarelli’s fundamental attributes towards his everyday life are kept straight forward and simple. They are integrity and trust.
Gerry truly believes that for a real estate transaction to be successful it must maintain those two important core pieces. Establishing trust from the very beginning of the relationship is most important to Gerry and like any relationship it is sometimes the hardest. Once trust is established clients will return to you again and again. There is no limit to any relationship that is built off of integrity and trust and Gerry’s repeat clients are living proof of these morals. He also believes that his passion and success comes from just “truly liking people” as a whole.
Gerry discovered early on that he was a “people person” while working in restaurants as a teenager in the Bronx. He was able to connect the restaurant business and customer service industry to help build a successful real estate career. He always felt the pull of real estate for as long as he can remember and after a brief journey in finance at KPMG, he dove headfirst into the industry. Gerry built a commercial real estate business from the ground up over the course of eight years and spent time training new agents in Westchester and Connecticut. Eventually, he found the work to be too corporate and uncreative and had the inner desire to keep striving for more within the real estate field.
His childhood best friend Gino Bello had been asking him to team up to form their own real estate business and the timing finally ended upright. “I got Gino his first job in a restaurant when he was 14 and he got me the job that’s become my career and life’s passion.”
As much as he loves making his clients happy, Gerry’s biggest challenge is on occasion telling someone NOT to buy a house. In such instances, “we lose more than we make, but that goes with the territory.” This is the byproduct of the unshakeable integrity that is at the core of the business which he built from scratch with his buddy from the Bronx. “It can’t be about the paycheck, you really need to have your client’s best interest at heart.” As for Gerry’s interests, he adores his little niece and loves cars. “I’m a Mustang fanatic.” Lucky for his clients, Gerry remains a fan of people too. He is the agent they turn to time and time again for superior industry know-how, skill and
an unwavering commitment to a trustworthy working relationship.

"Gino and Gerry are the ultimate real estate professionals.... they were amazing every step of the way and sold our home immediately! We cannot recommend them more highly. They are simply the best!"-Colleen- MOHEGAN LAKE, NY
“We both bought and sold a home with the help of Gino & Gerry from the Gino Bello Homes team. In both cases, they made what are exciting, fraught, and stressful processes even when there isn't a pandemic as enjoyable and easy as possible. When we were buying our new home Gino & Gerry were always available to us, and gave us what I always found to be objective and reasonable advice without ever sliding into pushing us toward a decision we weren't sure about. Both Gino and Gerry always listened to what we liked and disliked, and were able to help us distill what we were really looking for. They made sure we'd considered all of our stated interests at the homes we visited with them, and they pointed out aspects that we hadn't considered. Throughout the whole buying process it felt like they were firmly in our corner and not simply trying to make a deal happen. When selling our home they sent a stager to help us understand what to do to get our home in order for selling. They answered all of our process questions promptly and clearly. What's more, when they took the pictures (which included a walk through and video) of our house, they were so well done it almost made us want to stay! In the end, Gino and Gerry were crucial to our finding a home we're very happy to have purchased as well as very quickly selling our previous home (which Gino helped us purchase the better part of a decade ago, in fact!) with results we couldn't be happier with. Should we ever need to make another move, they're the first people we'll be calling hands down.“-Kevek
We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with the Gino Bello Dream Team. Gino and Gerry were able to list our home and get us to contract at lightning speed. What sets Gino apart from the other realtors is that he puts a ton of effort and resources into any home he lists. I’m certain that if it weren’t for his guidance and marketing efforts, we would not have been able to sell our house as quickly as we did, and for the price that we did! He also helped us purchase our dream home. With his negotiation skills, he was able to get us that house with all of our requested repairs, even when there were other offers on the table. Gino lives locally and knows the lower Westchester area very well. All of the vendor recommendations he made to us have been spot on. We definitely recommend Gino Bello 100%!-Mai Peltz
