Jon Stawinski-Broker

I have worked with large firms and have been selling a variety of homes in Long Island for the past 10 years. I have represented both buyers and sellers. By working for other top companies, I listened and learned and realized something was missing. I had a lot of clients that passed up opportunities because they didn’t have the time or resources to get what they wanted. My solution was to assemble a knowledgeable team with years of experience; attorneys, mortgage bankers, home inspectors, insurance professionals, and construction crews. Now you can have everything at your fingertips, the best of both worlds, think of it as one stop shopping at affordable prices. Our resources will be offered to you. Myself and my team will be dedicated to service you 24 hours/ 7 days a week.

We build long term relationships with our clients and continue to receive many referrals as a testament to their experience. We will represent you like we would our family and will always work with your best interest in mind. We will listen to your goals, and recommend ways to help you achieve them. Our objective is to achieve your goals. We will take the time and walk you through every detail and navigate you through the buying or selling process. The real estate process requires negotiation of complex issues: we are committed to represent your best interests.

We will help you secure the best possible price, with the most favorable terms, in the shortest period of time. We will work to ensure your purchase or sale stays on track and on time. You will receive outstanding customer service and our professional expertise.

Throughout my career I have focused on understanding my client’s needs and expectations, then working diligently to achieve our mutual goal.  As your realtor, either buyer or seller, you can be assured that I will work tirelessly for you, and guide you through every step of the real estate process.

I joined the team at Bracia Realty because of their dedication to client satisfaction and focus on full service, which is unique in the industry.  At your convenience I would like to schedule a meeting to discuss your real estate needs.

Louis Balestriere-Attorney

I graduated from St. John’s University with a degree in finance. Immediately following graduation I went to work at Salomon Brothers as a stock analyst in the Investment Policy Group where I was responsible for the Firm’s recommended list of US Stocks, forecasting the earnings of the S&P 500, and co-authoring the Investment Policy Weekly. After graduating from St. John’s University School of Law where I attained Dean’s List honors and was a member of the Bankruptcy Law Review, I remained at Salomon Brothers as a Bond Analyst where I determined the credit quality of over 100 banks and bank holding companies, and the investment viability of their bonds. I have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Bloomberg Business news.

For almost 15 years, I have been practicing Law, specializing in Trust and Estates and Real Estate. My responsibilities include the preparation of wills, trusts and ancillary documents to aid individuals in the management of their personal affairs, the preservation of their assets, and the disposition of their property. In addition, I assist personal representatives in the probating and administration of estates of all sizes, both contested and uncontested. I also assist individuals and corporations in the buying and selling of homes, co ops, condominiums and commercial properties of all sizes.

I currently reside in Bellmore, New York with my wife, Suzanne and my son, Giovanni.
