The PORRETTA GROUP and their professional network consistently deliver results that go beyond expectations and promote long-term loyal relationships. The team’s year-over-year success in the buying, selling, and leasing residential Real Estate is a direct reflection of their clients’ experiences.

It was the mid 1980’s when Nick (Francesco and Lina’s father) decided to embark on a career in Real Estate. Shortly after, Nick opened doors to First District Realty. Founding a real estate firm in a downward spiraling market was no easy task. Nick knew that if he could make it through the tough times then all his hard work, unflagging commitment and dedication to the career he loved would eventually make him a success, and it did. That was just the beginning of what would turn out to be a long and impressive real estate career.

Being raised in the exciting world of real estate it was no surprise that Francesco and Lina followed in their father’s footsteps. In 2005 Lina acquired her license, Francesco’s license followed in 2008. With a rapidly growing business and the need to service their clients, Nick formed The Porretta Group, alongside his wife Sylvia and children. In 2010 Nick was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and on June 16th, 2010 he passed away. Nick’s same goals, principles and aspirations remain as the driving force behind the group’s success; professionalism, uncompromising integrity, and exceptional service. And as they say … “It runs in the family” … Francesco and Lina became real estate partners, and their mother Sylvia, their executive assistant. They continue to set new sales records year over year and are excited for what the future holds!
