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 able to sell our condo at above asking price only 3 days after listing. He organized the process from start to finish including strategy and staging, free professional photography, open houses, offer comparison, through successful and smooth closing. He even got us a Boston Magazine online feature! One of our favorite things was how tech-savvy he was; we were able to do almost everything via email rather than by paper. I would recommend him to anyone!

Joe helped me buy my condo in Dorchester which was new territory to me.

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 [...]

From the start, Joe understood that as first time home buyers, we needed a little more explanation and help through the process. When the seller tried [...]

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.
