Looking for a home?
You’ve come to the right place.
It’s a tremendous undertaking to buy a home. It can be exciting and unsettling especially leading up to the transaction. If you’re like most people, we bet you’ll likely want some expert advice along the way — and you’ll undoubtedly need a real estate agent looking out for your top interests.
Selling your home?
We can help you with that too.
We know that selling a home can be a daunting task. As well-connected agents, we’ll strive to get the best prices and get it sold quickly. It’s easy to snap up the first REALTOR you meet, but deciding on the best agent takes a little time.
About Castro Realty Group:
Castro Realty Group is a Central Florida Real Estate Brokerage serving the community for over 20 years.
My name is Marcia, and I am the broker/owner of Castro Realty Group. I have a few different real estate interests, and below are just a few that Iâ€™d like to share with you:
REO/Foreclosures and Short Sales:
I have worked successfully with foreclosures and short sales for several years and often list foreclosure properties for various banks. I have specialized training in these types of properties and really enjoy working on them.
What can I say about short salesâ€”they are long, involved, and oftentimes difficult and frustrating. However, I am happy to say that I have been very successful in negotiating short sales with banks. I am experienced in working with short sales, pre-foreclosures, and foreclosed properties with various banks including SunTrust, WAMU, Countrywide, Bank of America, First Franklin, HomEq, Carrington Mortgage Services, Ocwen, CIT Financial, HSBC, Chase, and others.
Down payment assistance programs:
I am honored to have been chosen on multiple occasions as the real estate expert speaker at both City of Orlando and Orange County down payment assistance classes. I have successfully placed many families in these programs and providing these families with the opportunity to find their first homes is truly why I love this career.
Selling your Home:
I have been very successful in home sales, consistently selling my listings faster and for more money than the competition. Part of the reason for this is because we answer all sign calls and we aggressively market properties for sale so that your home can get the exposure it needs to get it sold.

A Note About How Our Office Works:
I am thrilled to say that we have an excellent customer satisfaction rating, approximately 90% of the companyâ€™s business is generated through word of mouth and positive referrals from satisfied customers. Our office is small and personalized, so you will never feel â€œlostâ€ here. I believe very much in a team approach because I want more than one person to view your paperwork, and I also want to make sure that when the right property for you comes on the market, you can view that property right away. So, often times you will start off by working with me, I will create automatic searches based on your criteria and will work closely with the lender to make sure your financing is underway and going smoothly. You will most likely view the homes with myself or occasionally another agent in the office. This agent will be selected because he/she specializes in your area of interest and is experienced in your type of financing, and because he/she has the availability to show you the homes in the fastest time possible. Throughout the process, the agent, lender, and I will work closely to make sure your experience is as smooth and successful as possible. I am always personally available to you, and welcome your phone calls. My personal cell phone is 321-228-9967, or you can email me at [email protected] .
