Joe Castro is a real estate broker with nearly 10 years of experience and is highly regarded for his exceptional knowledge of the industry. Growing up in upstate New York in a family that built their own homes, Joe was introduced to the world of real estate at a young age. After moving to Boston, Joe thoroughly enjoyed buying, gutting, and rehabbing his own home.
From blueprints, design, permits, construction, modification, and sale, Joe understands the entire process. He sees what others might overlook, anticipating issues and next steps, and striving to avoid problems down the road. He brings a genuine desire to do right by his clients, even if it means not pursuing a particular sale. With a hands-on, stress-free approach, transactions are smooth and often run ahead of schedule, a rarity in the industry.
Joe gets huge satisfaction from helping others and readily admits to excelling under pressure. At age 16, he volunteered with his local fire department as a Firefighter/EMT. After becoming a paramedic, Joe moved to Boston and worked at Boston Medflight doing air medical rescue as a Critical Care Transport Specialist before launching his real estate career.
In addition to his real estate license, Joe holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Business, Summa Cum Laude, from Northeastern University. He lives in Dorchester with his dog, Riley, a Weimaraner. Joe is also a licensed pilot and enjoys taking to the skies whenever he can to admire all the beauty New England has to offer.

Joe was an amazing help through my home buying process! He was always available to talk and was on top of all of the properties in the area that would fit my needs. He was incredible from start to finish and very attentive to my needs as a first time home buyer. Joe is able to navigate the fast moving and competitive Boston market through his hard work and dedication. I could always trust and count on him to notice things that I missed about a home. This process would not have been as [...]
MARY FRACCHIA - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
Joe helped me buy my condo in Dorchester which was new territory to me. He knows everything about Dorchester and I quickly felt secure in knowing I was getting someone with such a thorough understanding of the community. We searched for several months and I never felt rushed or that I had anything less than his full attention and always in a timely manner. He understood what I was looking for and helped me to find the home I feel was perfect for me. This condo was my "downsize [...]
AUGUST ZUSER - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
I can't recommend Joe highly enough! This review is long overdue. I had a fairly complicated situation of needing to sell my condo in Dorchester, that was still being rented out to long term tenants, while I was living in California. When I first spoke with Joe he assured me he would take care of everything for me and he did not disappoint. From lining up the lawyer, working with my existing tenants to doing an amazing job setting up and showing the condo (he managed to get me over 5 [...]
MICHA SAN ANTONIO - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
It was great working with Joe! From beginning to end, he was always very responsive. I had many questions throughout this process and he proved to be very resourceful and knowledgeable. I was able to trust Joe and always knew that he had my best interest at heart. Joe took the time to study and analyze the market and use his local knowledge. At the end, his critical analysis and excellent negotiation skills made it possible to get the house (in a multiple offer scenario). Even during the [...]

Joe has been accompanying us toward our first real estate purchase. He’s been super responsive and proactive. He knows Boston very well and understood our needs and our project right away. His advices were extremely precious, from the initial search to price negotiation, bank loan hunt, home inspection, all the way to the purchase itself.

P. MENORET - ROXBURY, MA
My husband and I worked with Joe to purchase our new "downsized" home. He showed keen insight and helped us find the right area for us. Joe is knowledgeable, personable and extremely patient and he incredibly generous with his time. I truly cannot say enough good things about him!!
ANTANERY - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
Joe Castro is a true Gentleman and advocate. Honest, sincere, responsive and knowledgeable of the market. I highly recommend Joe to anyone in the market buying or selling!
J. USER - BOSTON, MA
Joe's high level of competency and professionalism served us well in our recent acquisitions of two condos, one of which serves as our primary residence. I can't imagine how my wife and I would have been able to sort through all of the information that Joe provided us with if we had been working with another broker. Joe was tireless in his efforts towards listening to our needs and showing us several listings until we finally found the perfect places that allowed us to check all of [...]
J. ZUSER - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
Very consultative and was there when I needed him through the multitude of first time homebuyer questions! Highly recommended. Joe is also a great resource for local attorneys, lenders, and home rehab crews.
SAMUEL WEINER - NORTH DORCHESTER, MA
Joe and everyone he recommended made my first-time home buying experience a walk in the park. In fact, I probably complicated things more than they needed to be by virtue of the fact that so many people warned me about how grueling the process would be and how many pieces needed to be juggled--that I was over-questioning. Still, Joe was unflappable, responding to my every question with speed and accuracy, humor as necessary and unending patience. I entered the market months before I had any [...]
