am glad to give Dino Virella my highest recommendation. Dino possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent real estate agent – he knows the market extremely well; he is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with me. Dino is both very professional and personable. He clearly takes pride in doing a great job. In my particular case, as a seller of a home that had a great upside value but needed lots of work, Dino saw the same potential value that I did and he was able to market and sell it for what we wanted in price where the previous agent was not able to do. We were also living an hour plus away from the home and Dino took care of everything we asked of him. There were several rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Dino was a great help.

It would be difficult to envision someone doing a better job than Dino or being anything but happy in choosing to work with him.
