Rome did a fantastic job helping me sell my home. Not only providing guidance for how to approach it but also closing the deal. Can't thank him enough.

Rome Celli and his team, Paul Manuse and Carol Gerbasi are excellent. I highly recommend them to sell your home or find you a new one! They practice with the highest degree of professionalism. They got to know us well as buyers. Their vast knowledge of the market, community and structural details of the homes we viewed was critically important as first time home buyers relocating.

These people are in this business for the right reasons. They WANT to help you find the home you’re gonna love, they do not skip over flaws in a home bc it could sell faster. They really work for you. I have to say, I feel GREAT abt where our agent payment was going when we closed. I almost feel like it wasn’t enough! Rome Celli and Paul Manuse always found time to show us a house no matter how busy they were and when we’re ready to sell, we know who to call!

We reached out to Rome to help us challenge our assessment for our home in Brighton. He responded instantly, gave us excellent advice--and declined any compensation!! We were totally impressed with Rome's integrity and professionalism. We recommend Rome unequivocally!

We knew Rome Celli was the best Realtor for us at the very beginning of our interview. While other Realtors were ready to start looking at listings and start showing us houses before they really knew who we were; Rome asked questions. What is our type of home, neighborhood… We were moving from out of the area and Rome was already thinking out of the box about the best strategy for us to find a home in a runaway market. Rome and his associate, Paul Manuse, were quick to point out the good and bad features of each house and weren’t afraid to give us honest and sometimes firm advice. If we ever sell or buy again in the Rochester area we’ll be calling Rome. Highly recommend them

The first time Rome helped us was in 1998. We were selling our home to move to Colorado. After interviewing several Realtors, Rome stood out as being the best prepared, the most knowledgeable, and just a straight shooter. Needless to say he sold our house at the right price and saved us money with a nugget of valuable advice. Our son is now relocating to Rochester and Rome made such an impression I didn't have to look up his name. Rome helped our son find a place with the same professionalism, market insight and dedication as before. If you are considering hiring a realtor I can honestly say that Rome is the best, period.

Rome is extremely detail oriented and is very knowledgeable about real-estate. In this market you really need to work with someone who knows their stuff.

Rome's dedication to his clients is amazing. He puts homeowners at ease in what can be a stressful time when they are selling or buying a home. He brings to the table years of experience and a closely knit team of professionals. He was a pioneer when it comes to photographs of homes on the market and the importance they have. If you are in the market to purchase or sell a home please consider using him and remember.....All roads lead to Rome.

Rome gets rave reviews for his knowledge of the Rochester marketplace and his professionalism. Rome has represented me as well as several of my personal clients. Everyone wishes he was available to help them buy their new home in the state they moved to because nobody sells homes like Rome!

Personable. Knows the market. Listens. These are just a few of the many traits that are why we are giving Rome a five star recommendation.

We've used Rome Celli to sell our city house and to buy a suburb house (our current home). Most recently he provided a benchmark analysis of our home. The thoroughness of the document is amazing and we now know more about the current market and have ideas on what we might get if we were to sell and what we could do to improve our home that would help it sell.

Rome doesn't disappear after a sale. He brings his clients together regularly for events such as movies, ice skating and networking. If you like a consultative selling approach from your realtor, consider Rome as one of the realtors you interview! Many of our friends have used him too. We plan on using him again!
