Stribling & Associates, a premier New York residential brokerage, announces that Gina Castellano has been named Brooklyn Director of Sales. Formerly an agent with Stribling for nearly three years, Gina brings a decade of real estate experience working throughout Brooklyn and a vast knowledge of the borough’s evolution.
“We are extremely proud to welcome Gina as part of the management team. She’s a natural leader who has more than proven herself in her time at Stribling, and I know she will continue to be an invaluable resource to our agents and clients as we continue to grow in Brooklyn,” said Stribling President Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan.
Stribling’s Brooklyn brokerage launched in 2013 with the opening of the Boerum Hill Office. Catherine Witherwax, the previous Brooklyn Sales Manager, decided to step down to return to her roots as an agent and will remain with Stribling at the Chelsea office.
In her new role, Castellano – a Brooklyn native - will oversee 29 agents as well as day-to-day operations in Brooklyn. “I am honored to be able to work and represent Brooklyn, my home, as part of the Stribling management team,” said Castellano. “I am very passionate about Brooklyn, its people, the neighborhoods, and all the changes that are happening in this very exciting market.”
Before joining Stribling, Castellano worked at two of New York’s most prominent real estate agencies, and built a solid reputation as a sophisticated and knowledgeable Brooklyn specialist. Prior to that, she worked in the fast-paced film and television industry for 15 years, which she says has prepared her for the brisk pace of NYC real estate.
Castellano attended both Hunter College and Rutgers University, and currently lives with her family in Park Slope.
