  • Strong Understanding of Valuation Process and Techniques - Why is this important?  The agent who understands valuation techniques can offer sound advice on pricing when property is put on the market.  If the owner prices property too high, no buyers come to look at it.   If it is priced too low, then the seller may suffer a loss.

Personal Background

Three generations of a family in building and real estate with a reputation of customer satisfaction and quality construction as a contribution to society with memorable appearance as the built outcome. 

In 1930-1931, one of the largest public building construction projects in the Capital District area was the new Albany County Jail, representing an investment of approximately two million dollars and was occupied in September, 1931.  This was built by Marinello and Stanco General Contractors (Anthony Marinello and Giuseppe Stanco - Principals).   Marinello and Stanco General Contractors also built the Washington Park Lake House, a beautiful building of Spanish type architecture in Albany, New York.  The exterior of the building is of buff colored face brick with cast stone sills, coping, etc. and terra cotta ornamentation.   The sloped roofs were covered with red Spanish tile.  The general construction of the Washington Park Lake House is of concrete, partly submerged in the water of the lake;  walls of solid brick;  floor slabs are reinforced concrete;  roof slab was of gypsum block.   

Marinello and Stanco General Contractors also built several brick apartments, churches, schools, police and fire stations in Albany, Schenectady, and Schoharie before the firm was restructured during World War II.  After WW II Stanco Builders specialized in new construction of residential homes in Albany (South Manning Boulevard and New Scotland Avenue), North Colonie (Loudonville), Schenectady and Niskayuna building approximately 200 homes in the Capital District area using proven construction techniques which still meet the tastes and lifestyles of occupants today.
