Joe Castro

Real Estate Advisor


Joe Castro is a real estate broker with over 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.
