About John Astorino


After 25 years as a professional advertising photographer, I bring a strong sense of marketing and presentation to all of my listings. Selling a home is very similar to marketing any high end product. Close attention to detail is key to getting a home sold.

Selling real estate is a new way of meeting and making new friends. After joining Long & Foster Real Estate, I teamed up with the leading agent in Fairfax Station and Clifton. 5 years of Team experience has put me in the position of starting my own team. I'd like to think we have a New Team, with a New Approach to Real Estate. John Astorino & Associates will always put our clients first!

Risks And Rewards Of Selling Your Home Without A Realtor

From the perspective of a home buyer, the position of a real estate agent can seem unjustified in its existence.
