Some people put you at ease the moment you meet them. You feel as if they have been your neighbor for years, and you trust them to safeguard even your most precious possession—like your home. Lorena Costino was born with this gift, which is why people trust her with what may be the single largest transaction of their lives: buying or selling their homes. And sometimes both simultaneously.
When you meet Lorena, her radiant smile is the first thing you notice. That smile landed her many television commercials when she worked as an actor prior to pursuing her passion in real estate. Now Lorena has established herself as the “Trusted Valley Realtor Mom.” Clients, colleagues and friends describe her as a “walking Google search” for all things related to the Valley.
“I don’t know anyone who knows the Valley better than Lorena,” shares client Julie Kang. “When she helped me purchase my dream home, I would mention a location and she would rattle off every detail of each street! I was blown away by Lorena’s depth and breadth of knowledge of the Valley.”
Finding the right area to live in the Valley—especially with school-age children—can be overwhelming. Lorena helps clients identify the school that best meets their kids’ needs and find their dream property in that area. There is no substitute for talking to a real mom who has conducted exhaustive research on schools for her own children.
Lorena loves seeing people’s stress evaporate as all the pieces of the real estate process come together. “I recently helped a couple sell and buy a house while helping them decide on the right school for their son,” she says. “Their initial stress level was a 10 out of 10, but I made sure it declined with every step. They were thrilled with the sale of the old house, the purchase of their new, and their chosen school.”
Client Calleen Cordero says, “Lorena is not only one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with, she is also a really awesome person. Immediately I felt she had my best Interest at heart. I never felt any pressure, and she made the whole process easy and fast.”
Lorena and family
Selling and buying a home at the same time is a juggling act that requires flawless execution. Lorena has successfully helped many clients with the dual transaction and made it look easy, while working relentlessly in the background. She credits her own hard-working mom as a big influence for her unparalleled work ethic and commitment to deliver on her promise.
“My mom never rested, and now my husband and kids tell me that I never rest,” explains Lorena, who lives with her husband, two teenagers and an adorable miniature dachshund. “I take this as a compliment!”
Lorena enjoys volunteering at her children’s school and helping her community provide opportunities for less-privileged children. You can also find her cheering at her kids’ soccer games. “One of these days, I’m going to relax for an entire day and do nothing … OK, maybe half a day,” she laughs.
