Managing Director

Joseph Gileno

Humble beginnings are often a great indicator of someone’s character. In the case of Joseph Gileno, they certainly are. Joe was born and raised in the Bronx, NY, before moving to Putnam County in 2014 together with his siblings, parents, nephews, and nieces.

Joe grew up in a big household that supported each other through everything. His parents instilled great values in him from a young age, leading to his success professionally and personally. They were also encouraged to look for new opportunities and not to fear risks, this helped give him a go-getter and a can-do attitude.

After attending Iona College, he decided to get his Real Estate License and started working in the financial services industry. He quickly made a name for himself as someone who was not only knowledgeable but also trustworthy. He has a close-knit client base that he considers friends and family.

From his Bronx upbringing to his current role as a family man and business owner, it’s clear that for Joseph Gileno, family is everything. Joe’s story is one of hard work and determination, shaped by the values he learned from his own family. Yet, despite his success, he remains humble, always putting his loved ones first.

He currently resides in Brewster, NY, with his wife Melissa and their four children. In his free time, Joe still manages to find time to coach his kids’ baseball teams and enjoys spending weekends with his loved ones.
