Get to know Anne M. Costello
A REALTOR since 2007, I am passionate about serving the needs of my clients. As a native Philadelphian living in Bucks County many years, I approach real estate as a consumer, a relocated corporate wife and my "neighborhood expert".
I recently became the Sales Director for my real estate office. I am part of a Full Service Family owned real estate company in the Bucks County PA, Mercer and Hunterdon Counties in New Jersey. Outstanding customer service, expert market knowledge, and stellar communication with clients are hallmarks of the company and everyone of its agents. I love recruiting outstanding candidates to serve our public well. Real Estate is our passion, surpassed only by our passion to serve.
Working closely with Move-up or Downsizing families, I guide them in identifying their needs/wants and finding the right home or the right buyer allowing them to move to the next phase of their lives. We work together to identify neighborhoods and communities that work.
Life is full of transitions. For Engaged and Newly Married Couples, life is all good. My clients are happy and filled with hopes and dreams for their life together. For couples who are planning a wedding or recently married, buying a home can be particularly stressful. As they learn the art of compromise, they learn a lot about each and the home buying process.
For Couples Facing the Empty Nest, there are exciting decisions to be made: Do we want something smaller with fewer rooms and less work? Are we looking for an active community with pool and clubhouse and other amenities? Looking to move closer to the kids and grandkids? These questions open up a world of opportunities to re-imagine how and where couples live their pre-retirement and early retirement years.
Divorce and separation happen unfortunately, and handling the real estate issues is an important part of the process. I work with couples in all stages of the process to assist them in their real estate decisions. My Communication Plan for couples who are separating and/or divorcing is extremely fair and assures each spouse that I am not taking sides (I refer to myself as Switzerland) and will represent both their interests equally. I also work with attorneys where needed to communicate effectively about the sale process. My only goal is to sell my divorcing/separating clients' home as quickly as possible, allowing each spouse to move on with their lives.
Sometimes a family can find themselves in difficult financial circumstances and may need to sell their home using the Short Sale Process. I work with clients to determine whether a Short Sale is a viable solution for them. If so, we work together to prepare the home for sale, show it off to its best advantage and secure a buyer. For families in a Short Sale situation, life can be pretty stressful. I work with my families to reduce that stress as much as possible and to keep them informed every step of the way.
Families change and their needs change as well. Real Estate decisions are an important part of that process. It is an honor and a privilege to help my clients' real estate goals become a reality.
