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... More

"Gino Bello sold our house in four hours, for $25,000 over asking price, all-cash deal. Clearly, he's the man. But wait, there's more. - He is strategic, and a true partner. Having someone like this on your side makes all the difference. - He knows the market. He's a skilled negotiator, and makes it look easy. - Gino works all the time and is available 24/7. I don't know when he sleeps. - He helped us through a tricky legalization before we listed our home. It was painful, but Gino guided us through every step of the way, and it all worked out. - He listens. We asked for no open house; no problem. I wanted to change some language on the MLS listing; no problem. - He's patient. There were times when I called him crying, and he was totally cool with it. (Bless him.) - He has good industry connections. From a mortgage broker who got us an outstanding rate, to movers to lawyers, Gino seems to know everyone. We highly recommend Gino!"
A. Mason – White Plains, NY
"Gino is the best agent we worked with, period. He stands out in a couple of ways: 1.) he is not trying to sell you any house to collect fee. Every time he shows a house, Gino honestly points out the good and bad sides of the house, so that we can make informed decision; 2.) Gino is super responsive. He usually responses to Email and txt message in couple of minutes, which is very important during the high-stressed house buying process 3.) Gino certainly has the right connections and great negotiation skills. All the professionals he recommended (mortgage, lawyer, insurance, inspector, etc.,) are all great. we are very satisfied 4.) Gino understands the market, and his negotiation power is superior. He hits the price target for us. Great job! I would recommend Gino to every house buyer."
L. Yang – Purchase, NY
"Gino is a true professional putting client service above all else. He dedicated himself to us and our property as if it were his own and was essential in both selling our condo and purchasing our new home. He worked to sell our condo when there were many other similar properties available. He used a stager, photography and wasn't scared to give us a bit of tough love (which was needed). He then orchestrated our new home purchase to get us in very quickly. His knowledge of the market and counsel on all topics real estate related were invaluable every step of the way, and he was patient to answer any question at any time. He far exceeded our expectations through the whole experience putting past relationships with other agents to shame. Gino has strong relationships through out the community and a reputation of integrity and excellence. He knows how to get things done, and is absolutely a pleasure to work with."
A. Roldan – White Plains, NY
"Imagine moving to a place where you know no one and know nothing about anything. Seriously, that was my wife and me after moving from Los Angeles to Manhattan and being completely unfamiliar with southern Westchester. I'd used two different agents before finally meeting up with Gino. That's all it took. He was literally always a phone call away and "had our back" throughout the entire house-buying process. He is prompt, honest (yeah, there were some things we didn't want to hear - but had to), reliable, knowledgeable, and the dude has conncetions everywhere! Not sure what else anyone would look for in an agent."
M. Rodriguez – Eastchester, NY
"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
"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)
"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)
"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."
R. Elfand – 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 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)
"I knew before jumping into the home buying process that we wanted to use Gino Bello. He has a rock solid reputation for being the best in the area, and we knew that the buying process could be extremely competitive and challenging due to low inventory in the neighborhood we wanted. Gino made sure he understood exactly what we were looking for in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and financial affordability. He is professional, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the Westchester real estate market. If I had to move again (which we won’t be anytime soon since Gino found us exactly what we were looking for), I wouldn’t use anyone else but Gino and his team at Houlihan Lawrence. He gets the job done."
S. Tasnady – White Plains, NY (The Highlands)
"Gino is an expert. He lives and breathes the real estate market and seems to have all of the inside scoop. He gave us great advice, was very straightforward and when he gave us information, it was spot on. He is extremely efficient, answers or returns calls very quickly and if he doesn’t have an answer to a question, he will get it ASAP. He made the process a breeze. I really can’t say enough about him, if my husband and I have any further real estate needs, he is the first person we will call!"
D. Decktor – White Plains, NY (The Highlands)
"Gino and his team are absolutely fantastic. Their knowledge of the Westchester market is unparalleled, and they are extremely supportive and responsive through every step of the sales process. This was our first experience buying/selling real estate and Gino/Gerry made it very easy for us. We were selling a relatively old house, and despite that had over 20 showings in the first week and multiple offers shortly thereafter. Don't think this would've been possible without their dedication. I would highly recommend Gino and his team for anybody looking to buy or sell their home."
B. Lanman – White Plains, NY
"Gino Bello and Gerry Magnarelli achieved an amazing result for us! We had tried other realtors to sell our house in Hartsdale, and were disappointed for a long period of time. But when we gave the listing to Gino, he and Gerry and their team swung into action, and within days they had lined up showings to qualified buyers and in a matter of just few weeks we were in contract with a cash buyer, and we closed on the house quickly and efficiently. We recommend Gino and his team 100%--they are great!"
L. Bonner – Hartsdale, NY
"Gino is a high energy results oriented agent. Within a week of our house being on the market, he brought in multiple offers (the first offer being made within two days of hitting the market). We ultimately landed $35k over ask. Throughout the transaction it was clear that Gino has a strong sales / support team and deep network in the community, which drove traffic to our property. His business partner Jerry was awesome and made the process feel so seamless. Gino is a distinguished agent and I would recommend leveraging his network, sales process, and market expertise. It makes a big difference when trying to squeeze out every bit of value during the transaction."
J. & K. Delgado – White Plains, NY (Orchard Hill)
"In one word, Gino Bello was AMAZING from start to finish! We chose Gino to represent us for both our sale and purchase. Throughout the entire process, Gino made himself available for any questions and responded immediately when asked to do anything. It was evident that Gino takes tremendous pride in what he does and that he truly cares about his customers and their happiness! Buying and selling a home is a scary process for anybody, but when you have someone like Gino Bello representing you, it makes the process so much easier because you know that you will be taken care of in all matters. Gino always made himself available and responded to our calls immediately. He truly went out of his way to make sure that the process was running as smoothly as possible. His approach when dealing with the other parties was always professional, yet assertive enough to make sure that we as his clients were receiving what we needed. My husband and I cannot thank Gino enough for making what could have turned out to be a horrific process go so smoothly. I would recommend Gino Bello to anyone because he truly is the top realtor!"
K. & B. Spohrer – Rye Brook/Eastchester, NY
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!
L. Avolio - Eastchester, NY
Gino genuinely cares about your goals as a client, more than just making a transaction, which takes a lot out of the stress when you're selling a home. His team is exceptionally professional, always polite and considerate of your home when you are selling, and they do whatever they can to help you find your new home. In our case, we were renting after our sale, and though he didn't benefit financially, he still helped us find a new home. If I sold a thousand houses, I'd have Gino and his team represent me a thousand times.
M. Cateer - White Plains, NY
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 with 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%!
M. Peltz - White Plains, NY
I highly recommend Gino Bello! He guided me through the sale and purchase of a new house through each step of the way. Gino truly knows the market value as he was able to sell my house at asking price after only 3 days it was listed for sale on the market! Then, he also guided me through the buying process and was able to not only find my dream-home, but also negotiate the perfect price! Gino also knows many professional & highly competent people from various industries that he can refer to, for any housing-needs, upon request. Overall, I am very pleased with Gino & his team! They are very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, available, experienced, and cohesive! Thank you!
