As the Owner of a South Florida-based real estate firm Petrino Properties Inc., Gene Petrino offers comprehensive residential services throughout Broward County. With more than 16 years of real estate experience, his boutique firm specializes in buying, selling, mortgage planning and luxury residential properties.
Gene knows and understands real estate in the most organic way possible: His grandfather was involved in farms, ranches and residential/commercial endeavors, while one uncle maintained a successful brokerage in Colorado. Another uncle owned a 300 lot mobile home park. Three aunts are real estate investors. And his father paid for his college education through proceeds from rental properties. Get it? Real estate is in Gene’s genes!
He entered the business after an egregious process with the real estate agent that “guided” his first home purchase. Realizing that the industry should be about serving the customer instead of a focus on commissions, he founded Petrino Properties, with a mandate: “Real Estate The Right Way.”
With additional extensive career expertise in real estate lending industry, Gene is able to offer clients additional expertise so that there are no surprises leading up to closing on a property. His savvy in the marketplace has made him a go-to expert in the region, with multiple interviews as a pro real estate resource in The Sun Sentinel.
Aside from business, Gene loves English bulldogs—not only with four paws on the floor, but also all variety of artwork, photographs and memorabilia about the breed.
