Professional Profile – Jimmy Grappone Joins Costello Real Estate & Investements (REI)

Share this:

Very recently, I changed real estate agencies and joined Costello Real Estate & Investments (REI).

Changing firms as a Realtor® is not uncommon, especially when one finds an agency and leadership which aligns with the values and goals the agent has for his or her business.

That’s what real estate firms are, after all – a conglomeration of businesses owned and operated by individuals who affiliate with other like minded individuals.

When making the move, I immediately set about updating my social profiles, websites and various biographies across the Internet.

I believe my bio for LinkedIn and my professional website,, sums up my story and my reasoning for being in this business.

On a Mission to Make Real Estate Simpler for my Clients and my Network Through Education, Communication, and Advocacy

I am proud to be a Realtor®.  My professional background is in communications and sales, and operating my real estate business allows me to harness all of my professional talents and interests for the benefit of others daily.

My motivation and inspiration begin at home.  Home is my “why” for being in real estate. Home is the place where we build relationships, enjoy family, and feel most comfortable just being ourselves.

My interest in real estate first surfaced as a child.  Driving through neighborhoods and visiting open houses on Sundays with my mom, I can recall going into new builds where she would point out to me what each room would eventually become.

When I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2000, I didn’t know I’d find a career in real estate, but I knew I wanted to have an impact on peoples lives.

I grew up in the suburbs of Richmond, VA (Chesterfield) and I lived in California prior to moving to Charlotte in 2006.  I’ve lived primarily in south Charlotte, Union County, and now Indian Land, SC since making the Carolinas my home.

I am active in the Waxhaw, NC and Indian Land, SC communities and recently served a two year term as President of the Waxhaw Business Association.  I co-founded the annual Pups ‘n Pints event in Waxhaw and I volunteer with Autism Strong Foundation and St. Matthew Catholic Church.

I love the variety in real estate and forming genuine relationships with my clients.  My duty goes beyond the transaction, and I strive to remain a trusted guide and advisor to my clients long after escrow has closed.

I am a story-teller at heart and I love telling stories through social media, blogging, and video.  I find it interesting to learn about my clients’ unique stories and their compelling reasons for buying or selling a home.

I am truly grateful for the role I get to play in my clients’ stories.

Perhaps one day I’ll be part of yours.
