About Eileen Pinto
NYS Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
Eileen was born and raised in in the Lower Todt Hill area of Staten Island, one of the 5 Boroughs of New York City. As a youngster, she attended a private school called St. Teresa School, located in Castleton Corners and later went on to attend the public school, Susan E. Wagner High School.
Shortly after high school, she began a career on Wall Street working for a top firm who specialized in NASDAQ trading. After a five-year stint, she decided to start a family with her high school sweetheart and now husband, Robert Pinto. Robert is also a Staten Island native and grew up in Westerleigh. He is now a retired New York City Police Officer of 21 years.
After having two children and becoming a homemaker, Eileen found time to volunteer in her sons’ school programs like the P.T.A., and Boy Scouts, and was able to participate in many Staten Island community functions. Eileen also was able to raise monies for them by doing hand-painted wall murals, faux finishes, refurbishing furniture, and doing other creative interior home design projects for customers and friends while still being able to dedicate time to her family.
Eileen and her husband purchased their first home back in 2001. That is when she realized her passion for real estate. During that first purchase, she had the confidence to take control of the negotiating, the mortgage process and followed up with all aspects of the transaction. This invigorating first time buying experience prompted the couple to buy investment properties; as Eileen noted “the market seemed to be on an incline” and it gave them the perfect opportunity to begin investing in real estate.
After five years of investing, Eileen turned towards helping others with their real estate goals. She decided to obtain her real estate license and began working with some of the most notable realty firms on Staten Island.
Now, with over 16 years of real estate experience and continued education in her field she has obtained the following designations:
- An Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) which is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation.
- Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) counseling clients of age 50+ through major financial lifestyle transitions in relocating, refinancing, buying, or selling the family home.
- Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) to help sharpen her negotiating skills for her clients.
Eileen was awarded the Staten Island Board of Realtors Silver Top Producer from 2011-2015, and also received a Five Star Professional Award featured in the 2015 October edition of New York Magazine. In 2013, she decided to also obtain her New Jersey Real Estate Salesperson license to better serve her clients transitioning from New York to New Jersey.
