Pine Island IS a Gem!

Maybe you’ve never heard of Pine Island.  Or you may have heard that it’s a little town out in the middle of nowhere.  However, that’s just not true. Not only is Pine Island minutes from the Village of Warwick, it’s also right across the border from Vernon, New Jersey.  As a result, your commuting options are enhanced. Furthermore, so are your options for stores, restaurants, services and more.  Vernon provides access to the Appalachian Trail, horseback riding, ski resorts, restaurants, shops and Mountain Creek Water Park. The Village and Town of Warwick provide you with eclectic shops, restaurants, antique and consignment shops, more skiing, hiking and horseback riding.  Then you have wineries, cideries, breweries and distilleries throughout the area.

Pine Island itself is a delightful little town.  Or rather it’s one of Warwick’s hamlets. And it is evolving into a very special place to live. Known for its rich, black dirt, Pine Island farmland is famous for its onion production. It is also home to the well-known Jolly Onion Inn, which is enjoying huge success after its recent reopening. In Pine Island you will find dance schools, a music school and a preschool.  There’s a bagel shop, florist, hair stylist, yoga studio, delis and a farmers market.  There are even several places to order pizza from. That Place at the Onion, a consignment shop that had been a staple in the Village of Warwick, has relocated here. Furthermore, there are two gas stations, several auto repair shops, a sporting goods consignment shop, and a wine and liquor store. You can even stop by the Pine Island Brewing Company and sample one of their new craft beers!

And in this beautiful rural setting you can live the peaceful country life, on your own piece of Warwick.

For Jennifer DiCostanzo, Community Counts

While DiCostanzo focuses most of her energy on real estate, she also makes giving back to the community a priority.  With her previous agency she created “Light up Warwick.” This holiday light contest in 2013 and 2014 helped raised donations for the Warwick Valley Humane Society. Upon becoming a member of the Green Team she coordinated “Green Team Go Green for Vets” in November 2015.

Because Jen’s belief’s echo the firm’s policy of contributing to local charities as a way of giving back to the community, the Green Team is more than happy to support these efforts.  In 2016, she coordinated “Light up the Holidays.” This fundraiser benefited Warwick Valley Humane Society in that year, and in 2017 raised funds for Warwick Playground Dreams and the Vernon Township Senior Center. And each year she organizes a company-wide holiday basket drive for a family in need through the food bank.

In 2018 Light Up the Holidays was transformed into Team Up for Hope, an initiative to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for NAMI Orange County and NAMI Sussex County.  NAMI is a national grassroots organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those in our communities living with mental illness. Jen has been voted Citizen of the Year by her colleagues for her continuing efforts on behalf of several local charities for 2016, 2017 and 2018.  

DiCostanzo has also organized and co-chaired local fundraisers and remains involved with ongoing church events and youth activities.  

Originally from Staten Island, NY, DiCostanzo attended Drake Business School and worked as a Police Administrative Aide at the 1st Pct in lower Manhattan for NYPD.

Bought a Single Family home in 2019i in Warwick, NY

As first time homebuyers, we knew what we wanted but we didn’t know how to get it. From the very start, Jen went the extra mile to make sure we were informed and prepared to make the purchase of our home as smooth as possible. I cannot imagine how we could have possibly trusted our purchase with  any other Real Estate agent. Her knowledge of the local area and willingness to go the extra mile to keep all sides moving, made our first home purchase a complete dream. We could not possibly provide a higher recommendation of Jen DiCostanzo.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Washingtonville, NY

Jen was extremely attentive and helpful throughout the whole process and with no pressure, she kept reminding us that the house would pick us and we would know when it happened. She was always available to make appointments and was there from beginning to end. Can’t say enough good things.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Warwick, NY.

Jen is simply the best! She was so reassuring, helpful, and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. As first time homebuyers we really knew nothing about the process and Jen was such a patient and helpful guide. Jen truly looks out for her clients best interests as well. She was involved every step of the way. Jen is a grade A real estate agent and a wonderful person!  

11/07/2018 – Powell914

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in New Windsor, NY.

Jen provided stellar customer service and formed a personal connection with my husband and me. We didn’t feel as if we were just nameless, face-less clients; we felt as if we were friends/family. She was extremely patient and understanding, as we were first-time home-buyers. We would not be  successful homeowners if we didn’t have Jen as our realtor.

I don’t believe there are words to describe Jen’s commitment and professionalism during this entire process. From the very first day, she went above and beyond her responsibilities as a realtor. She went out of her way to provide us with information about the towns in which we were interested. She was highly responsive, and took the initiative to take on additional responsibilities to unburden us from extreme stress. She served as a liaison between all parties involved, in order to get us into our dream home.

Jen jumped in and gave us hope and encouragement when our first attempt at home-buying was unsuccessful. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of home-buying (finance, home structure, legality, etc.), and she shared every piece of information with us. She held our hands every step of the way. Her warm, genuine, and caring personality made it easy to work with her and trust her. She is simply a superb professional, and great human being. I would recommend her a million times to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Florida, NY.

Jen guided us through our first home Purchase. Aside from being very informative and “holding our hands” through this home buying process, Jen was always charming, empathetic, professional, and a rock throughout it all. She was always readily available and I can’t describe how much we appreciate  the way she handled everything. I’ll recommend her to anybody and everybody. Thanks Jen. I wish we could you give you more stars!

Working with Jen as a first time home buyer was an excellent experience. Jen was informative, straightforward, and available throughout the entire process.  She really got a sense of what I was looking for and helped me find my perfect first home.  Jen was extremely knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and prepared me for those I didn’t even know I had.  Thank you for making this experience as seamless as possible!

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Warwick, NY.

I cannot put into words how amazing working with Jen was. As first time home buyers we had zero idea on what the process was for house hunting/buying but with Jen by our side it was like having our very own personal helper. She stayed with us throughout the entire process, even after her work was  done. Her knowledge, kindness, and professionalism exceeded my expectations. I don’t think we would have found our forever home if it weren’t for Jen!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Warwick, NY.

What can I say? After selling our home, we worked with Jen for over 15 months to find our new home. At times she needed to be a counselor and friend when things didn’t work out, but above all, she was a professional representative for us in this challenging market. She was always available and took  us to look at more houses than I’d care to admit. She always had our best interests at heart and never made us feel we were an inconvenience. Jen is the best of the best, and I’d highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Monroe, NY.

Jennifer is super AWESOME!!!  In late 2017 I went on a search to purchase my 1st home.  I found a house in Queens, New York where I resided at the time, but the deal went down the drain because of so many things that went wrong from the beginning.  After this I took a couple of months to re-group before starting my search again. One day I decided to browse the website Zillow and found a few properties I was interested in.  I contacted a few realtors listed on the postings, but they were either pushy or advised against me attempting to purchase a home until my credit score was over 700-800. This was a very stressful and disappointing time, but I refused to give up.  I continued my search and one day saw a picture of Jennifer DiConstanzo and her pleasant look forced my curiosity to read through her reviews. Immediately I knew this is who I wanted to help me find my home that I long desired to own. It was not long after submitting my information that she contacted me, and I just knew this was one of the best decisions I had made.  From the beginning Jennifer treated me with delicate care and offered the best advise as we searched for my home. She is definitely a woman of integrity, with great work ethics and understanding, who goes above and beyond to assist you. She is patient, honest and compassionate and will not allow you to invest your money carelessly. As Jennifer assisted me, she remained mindful that I was a 1st time home buyer that needed much guidance.  She provided me with various helpful references that enabled me to establish a solid team of people to help me achieve obtaining my home. I am so grateful to the Lord that he allowed me to come into contact with Jennifer. We worked very well together to find the perfect turn-key home for my family. In less than (3) months of meeting Jennifer, I became a new home owner (at the end of March 2018). God is truly amazing and I’m glad he created such a wonderful woman.  She held my hand from the very beginning all the way into closing. My family and I were, and still feel so overjoyed for our new home as desired Upstate New York. I highly, highly, highly recommend anyone in search of property to work with Jennifer DiConstanzo and her team. I promise it will be one of the best decisions you ever made. Jennifer is AWESOME!!!

Jason W-Warwick NY: If you need to buy, sell or rent – you must contact Jen! She’s the best broker I’ve ever worked with. When you will contact her, you will hear back from her very quickly. She’ll listen to your actual requests and needs. She’s a fantastic negotiator too. Highly recommend!

Katie P-Warwick NY:  Jennifer was a pleasure to work with as our real estate agent. As first time buyers we were inexperienced with the house buying process, but Jennifer was extremely patient with us. She helped us figure out exactly what we were looking for and helped us find the right location in Warwick for a NYC commute. She was very responsive and we were very impressed with her expertise and professionalism. I would highly recommend her!
T.P. -Greenwood Lake NY:  3 years ago my dad had passed away and left me our family home. After cleaning out the home and finally deciding I was going to sell it this past June, I needed to find the right person to help me accomplish this task. After extensive research trying to find the right real estate agent in the area, I came across Jennifer DiConstanzo of the Green Team Realty.  And, after reading through her credentials I knew she would be the perfect fit. From the moment I first met Jennifer I knew I was right. She was overly optimistic (which I wasn’t) that there would be no problem selling this house. From signing the contract for her to sell my home to the closing which happened January 26th, Jennifer was with me every step of the way. There were quite a few bumps in the road getting there but Jennifer was always there to help. Jennifer went above and beyond and should serve as an example of what a great real estate agent is.

 Nikki T: Chester NY:Jennifer recently helped us sell and buy during a crazy market, in a very short time frame with some even crazier circumstances. She is a fantastic realtor and person which made working with her a breeze. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to refer her to family or friends.

 Bought Single Family Home in Goshen NY: Jennifer is the best. We were first time home buyers and this experience could be very overwhelming. Jennifer prepared us through all the steps. From the very beginning she listened to our needs and went above and beyond to help us. We are so grateful to have worked with her.
Rebecca C-Warwick NY: My husband and I fell in love with Warwick, and soon started monthly trips to the area. As soon as we knew we wanted to make the move from Manhattan to Warwick, we happened upon Jen’s realtor bio. Her personal experience with the NYC-Warwick commute and understanding of the city life we’d be leaving were invaluable to us. Jen’s response time was always incredibly fast, through phone calls, text, and email. She walked us through everything we needed to know about living in Warwick, including our choices for utilities, etc. Jen helped us find an amazing rental, but our ultimate goal is to purchase a home in Warwick. Without a doubt, Jen will be our realtor!

Chuck R- Greenwood Lake, NY: As first time buyers, we weren’t sure what to expect, but we soon realized that we were in the hands of a total pro. Jen was the perfect combination of tough love and hand holding. This isn’t just her job, it’s her passion. Her vast knowledge of the business and keen intuition make for a perfect  match. She provided multiple listing options of properties we though we wanted to see, but then slipped in what became the house we totally fell in love with and ultimately bought. Once we were under contract and things got quiet, she would routinely check in just to make sure we knew she was still there for us. Jen brings vision, patience, and experience to the table and we can’t imagine this process without her leadership.

Paul L- Greenwood Lake NY: From first contact to home viewings, through inspections, loans, and everything in between, Jen was the absolute best! Being a first-time homeowner, I didn’t know what was in store. Jen was always there to answer any question large or small, with the best communication skills. Her expertise  covered all that is involved in buying a home. I always felt comfortable, from her professional advice to the sometimes hand holding that I needed to get through the process. We couldn’t have done this without her! Use Jen DiConstanzo!

Jason S- Chester NY: We chose Jennifer because of her great reviews on Zillow; needless to say Jennifer exceeded our expectations. As first time home buyers we were apprehensive when beginning our search. Jennifer made the process of viewing properties seamless. Jennifer’s expansive real estate knowledge allowed us  to view various properties within the local area that met our preferences and budget. Jennifer also provided a flexible schedule that allowed us to view properties after work and on weekends. We appreciated the ease of communication with Jennifer via phone calls and text messages which allowed us to inquire quickly, and receive important feedback immediately. Jennifer handled all negotiations with the sellers promptly and professionally. We cannot thank Jennifer enough for all her help. Under her guidance we were able to make our dream of home-ownership a reality. She will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Sarah K- Williamsbridge Bronx, NY: Jenifer was a great agent. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the whole home buying process. She was super patient with us and was available for whatever we needed from the day we walked into her office until yesterday when we signed the papers and bought our first home. I’m so  happy we found her I can’t imagine going through this process with anyone better!

Bruce G- Warwick NY: 5 Stars isn’t enough to describe how professional Jennifer was with a personal touch. She made the selling of my house a enjoyable experience. It seemed she was a available 24/7. There wasn’t a question we had for Jenn were she didn’t know the answer off the top of a head.I would highly recommend  Mrs DiCostanzo to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Christopher R– Chester NY: Jennifer was my broker on my recent home purchase in Warwick. She is one of the most professional people you can ever deal with. Extremely responsive, always your best interest at heart, proactive and taking great initiatives to ensure the whole buying process is more pleasant and effective.

I deal with plenty of people on a daily basis in my business and Jennifer is at the top of my ranking.

Salvadore R- Warwick NY: Words cannot describe what she did for my family. She was extremely helpful when buying our first home. She is the complete package, went beyond her means to help us find our forever home to raise our family. We closed on our house on 8/23/2016. we took her advice from day one, at closing there were no hiccups because of the team we chose which she recommended. Look no further, she is the real deal!!

Sam B- Goshen NY: Jen was an absolutely incredible realtor for my wife and I. We purchased a home in Goshen, NY. My wife would call/text Jen every other day for a month span and she called/texted back asap every single time. Jen was engaging, informative and trustworthy every step of the way. It was clear the whole time that she passionately had an interest in making the process go as quick and as smoothly as possible. Our process was an absolute joy, the exact opposite of what is expected in a home buying experience. I can safely say that Jen was a major reason for that.

Jim S- Warwick NY: Jen is terrific and made the purchase process of our home move quickly from start to finish.

Jen is a wonderful person and agent. She is always willing to help however she can to match you up with the right property. She works hard to make the entire process as smooth as possible. After working unsuccessfully with other agents, I can say with confidence, that Jen is one of the best agents around. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She negotiated a very fair purchase price for our home.

She was instrumental in clearing a violation that enabled us to get our CO in a day or two so that we could close on our home at an earlier date.

Kathy S- Warwick NY: Jen is a wonderful person and agent. She is always willing to help however she can to match you up with the right property.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home

Joseph C-Chester NY: Jen was great. Although it took us longer than expected to find a home, Jen kept us confident that we would find the perfect home. She was right, we found a great home! Jen was always available for us and answered any questions we had.

Kevin K -Warwick NY: As a NYC Sergeant and a married father of three, I wanted to find the best agent in the Warwick area to assist us in looking for our dream house. I found her!! Her name is Jennifer DiCostanzo and she’s awesome!! Jen never rushed us, insisted that we take our time, and she was always available. Jennifer truly cares about her clients and goes out of her way to keep them calm during the stressful moving period. Jen breaks down the complex process of buying a home and makes it simple to understand.

As a result of her patience and hard work I’m proud to say we found our dream house in Warwick NY. Thank You Jennifer for all the guidance and help

Nicole P- Florida NY: Jen was fantastic from start to finish. And every second between. She was knowledgeable every single step of the way. Jen knew names of people to contact (and contacted them before us!) when ANY problem arose. She controlled us, kept us in line, kept us from panicking and kept every single thing in motion. She hustles, and doesn’t settle for anything but the best. I have absolutely nothing but positive to say about her

Jeff D-Warwick NY: Jen made the entire process easy and clear. She answered all of our questions clearly and concisely and was very proactive about communication. Jen has a great deal of knowledge about the area and was patient and understanding in regards to our needs. And, she helped point us in the right direction at every turn, including after we closed with numbers to call for setting up of services and local restaurant and handyman recommendations. She truly made what could be a difficult process as seamless as possible

Ted G- Warwick NY: It was a pleasure to work with Jen. Initially my wife and I were looking at a number of houses, all of which were unavailable to us due to prior contracts. Jen asked about our taste, wants, needs, and absolute no-go’s and suggested that we still go out and look at a few homes in the area which she felt that we might like. We agreed and after the third house we found exactly what we were looking for and put in a bid that day.

When it came down to selling our house, Jen was honest with us. She laid out exactly how the market looked and gave us an idea of what we should list our house for to ensure a sale within the time period which we were looking while still getting the getting the highest amount possible.

Throughout buying and selling, Jen walked us through the entire process step by step. There was no “hard sell” just honest advice. I highly recommend Jen as she is professional, reliable, friendly, and knowledgeable. Communication was excellent and we never felt as though we were on our own

Joseph M-Washingtonville NY: As first time home buyers, we didn’t have the best understanding of the process. Jen went above and beyond and took the initiative to educate us along the way. She always had our best interest in mind, and we couldn’t be more grateful for all of the work that she did for us. We highly recommend Jen

Natasha W- Warwick NY: What a wonderful experience to work with Jen! Highly recommend as she is personable, reliable, knows the business well, and just an overall great person to work with. She showed us homes that fit our criteria, got us a great buyer for our old home, and we purchased our dream home. Jen was professional, always communicating with us on status of everything….We couldn’t have done it without her!

Toni Ann P- Warwick NY: Jen did an amazing job from start to finish!! She was there and on top of things constantly for us! She sold our home and got us our new one in such a quick turn around, we could be happier or wish for better. I recommend her to everyone I know buying or selling a home!

We’ll be without a doubt recommending Jen to our family, friends, and anyone we encounter looking to rent, buy, or sell – and when we’re ready to purchase our first home, Jen will be the first phone call. She’s an absolute asset, and made this potentially stressful process a pleasure!

Jaydeen V- Warwick NY: I contacted Jennifer because I was looking for a place for my parents so they could live closer to me. My parents are elderly and require a lot of patience and Jennifer rose to the occasion. She took her time explaining the process and also meeting their needs. She was very knowledgeable and got the job done. When it came time to close not only did my parents have a condo that met their needs we also had new friend.

Becky D- Chester NY: Highly recommend Jennifer to any homeowner who is looking to sell their home. My home sale was complicated due to unforeseen problems, Jennifer’s dedication and service helped secured the sale of my home. She went above and beyond keeping me informed daily up to closing day. She not only provided Excellent representation but exceeded my expectations. Thank you Jennifer!!

Tina -Warwick NY: When we decided to look at homes in Warwick, my husband and I received a personal referral to contact Jennifer.

As soon as we contacted Jennifer we knew she was an expert at her trade. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, answered all of our many questions and really listened to our needs and found the perfect home to fit our family!

Our purchase wasn’t without a few “bumps” in the road, but Jennifer was there to make the process as smooth as possible.

I already recommended Jennifer to my friends and family. In our opinion, her knowledge in real estate and her guidance through the process is unparalleled.

Sandra F- Denton Ln, Warwick NY
Jen helped us so much throughout the process of relocating from Queens to Warwick! Her knowledge about the area was key in making the process a lot smoother. She got to know us well enough to narrow down our options until we found the perfect home for us.

We are really glad to have worked with her and highly recommend her!

Errol B- Florida NY: Working with Jen made finding and purchasing our first home too easy. Jen was not only our real estate agent, she quickly became our first friend here in Warwick. We experienced none of the difficulties or surprises many current home owners warned us about. That was mostly due to Jen’s great knowledge and experience in real estate. Her knowledge and experience also allowed us to quickly find and close on our new home.

She was very informative throughout the entire process and after. Any questions we had were quickly answered. Jen also provided us with great information about the area and its surroundings, transportation, schools, etc.

In the end we were able to find the perfect home for our family at the right price. I would definitely recommend Jen for your real estate needs and have already recommended her to many friends and family members.

Bette K- Warwick NY: I was looking for a rental, very difficult, in Warwick Grove and contacted Jen. I found her name on Zillow attached to a home that looked like it might be right for my needs. Jen was incredibly helpful, reachable, and knowledgeable.

I found her also to be a delight to work with. A lovely combination of both attentiveness without becoming overbearing.

Frank C- Greenwood Lake NY: From our first meeting I knew Jennifer was going to get my house sold. There was not one day that she didn’t call me to offer advice or encouragement or give me an update. She knew exactly what needed to be done and how much we should expect; she marketed our house the right way and offers came in within one week.

I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone; work with her and you won’t be disappointed

Lisa- Greenwood Lake NY: My house had been on the market with another realtor from another agency for almost a year, people came and went and we never got an offer, he never followed up or let me know what was going on. We contacted Jennifer in September and the house was sold by November and it was not the first offer, it was not an easy sell and Jennifer knew exactly how to present it and what kind of buyer she was looking for. Jennifer never stopped showing the house, and she kept me aware of everything that was going on, not just a phone call but a follow up text or e-mail.

Jen is not only a fabulous professional agent but she truly understands and cares about her client. She was there every step of the way and sat with us at the closing which made me feel at ease. I’m really going to miss Jen and hope that we stay in touch. I highly recommend anyone who is selling or buying or even renting to contact Jennifer, you will feel like you are dealing with a friend

Balancing Emotions When Selling Your Home…

Balancing Emotions When Selling Your Home…

Balancing emotions when selling your home… without losing your mind!

The day has come. You’ve decided to list and sell your home and embrace a new beginning.  Now comes the emotional roller coaster ride that everyone goes through. You are not alone. Understanding the phases involved will help you in balancing emotions so that you can overcome the ties that bind you.

Phase 1: Excitement

Excitement starts the early wave of emotions when you’ve made the decision to sell and are getting ready for your next venture and new beginning. The stars are aligned.

Phase 2: Second Thoughts

Second thoughts are the silent partner of anxiety. Will my home sell? How long will it take? Is it priced right? Why don’t buyers see the value in my home? Why did that one sell and not mine?  These thoughts will run through your mind on a daily basis.  Don’t let them!!!  Your home will sell to the buyer who is meant to have it. It’s that simple. Don’t overthink the process. Leave that to your realtor.

Phase 3: Buyer Feedback

Buyer feedback! The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, are opinions that are not about you, but the experience buyers had while viewing your house. Take note, make adjustments, and forge forward. Remember, not every home is for every buyer. Improve the showing experience for the next showing.

Phase 4: It’s worth more than that!

It’s worth more than that! You’re frustrated and annoyed the offer received was below list price. It’s a starting point to continue further discussion. Don’t get offended! Seize the opportunity of buyer interest.

Phase 5: Inspections, contracts and appraisal… OH MY!

Inspections, contracts and appraisal… OH MY!   Calm heads will always prevail. You are only allowed to panic when I tell you to” is a rule to be followed. You can’t stress the unknown variables. They will balance out. Leave that to the team you hired.

Phase 6: Relief, excitement and melancholy…

Relief, excitement and melancholy all rolled into the closing day and accompanied by exhaustion. Not that it’s laborious, but emotional! Remember you started the process with the goal to get you where you need to be, and now that it’s finally here, it’s a win/win!

Expecting these emotions to surface will help you understand it’s not just happening to you!  Limit stress factors with preparation and by hiring an experienced realtor to safeguard a smooth transaction in your home sale.
