Nina Gallo
Nina Gallo is a perfect addition to the Home Grown Real Estate team. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and she currently resides in Ridgewood, Queens with her husband and two children. She bears the trademark knowledge of a lifelong resident of the boroughs that gives Home Grown Real Estate its edge in the field, and she adds her own unique touches and experience that make her an agent of note for clients.
Ms. Gallo began her real estate career as a purveyor of rental spaces. This experience gave her the opportunity to hone the skill of matching the requests of clients to spaces that matched both their desires and needs. Ms. Gallo also discovered that her love of photography became an asset in her career in real estate.
Because she is a wife and mother, Ms. Gallo was immediately in tune to the subtle designs of a living space that make the day to day of family life smoother, but it is the keen eye of the photographer that allows her to find the beautiful aesthetics in a property and accent them to the benefits of her clients.
Whether her clients are looking to purchase a property or sell one, Ms. Gallo’s experiences and talents will bring together the right people with the right properties. It is her pleasure to be using her talents to help her neighbors by joining the team at Home Grown Real Estate.
Kristen McGowan

Kristen McGowan began her real estate endeavors working alongside Corcoran’s top sales brokers.  She spent four years gleaning invaluable insight into New York’s high – end residential real estate market before using her experience to launch her career as an associate broker.   In the last four years that she spent as an independent associate broker with Corcoran, she has been able to provide customers with a unique and prosperous real estate experience that resonates with her commitment to provide customized service and guidance.

Her ability to understand the needs of each individual customer comes from a perspective that allows her to hone in on the details that make the real estate experience exceptional for both buyer and seller.  Born and bred in New York, she earned a communications degree from St. John’s University in Queens.  Her clients’ trust and security in Kristen’s ability stems from the fine details that she learned in school combined with her ability to bring home grown knowledge, affability, and reliability to her work.

As a vested member of her community who has varied interests and life experiences, both buyers and sellers can be confident in the knowledge base that Kristen is able to bring to the table.  She has close ties within her home community of Sunnyside where she lives with her husband Brian, their three children, and their mastiff Sampson.  The family has deep seeded roots within the neighborhood where she owns her home and supports her husband Brian’s family business. As an active member of her community, she is involved in her neighborhood homeowner’s association where she serves as the secretary.  This conscientious attentiveness to her own neighborhood affords Kristen an unparalleled ability to experience the issues that are important to people when selecting a real estate property, and it radiates in her commitment to her clients.

With a wide array of personal interests, Kristen enhances her insider’s perspective to New York City and it’s surrounding locales.  She spends her free time enjoying the many benefits of having a wide variety of restaurants and theater choices nearby, as well as, being able to find new and scenic places to enjoy a run.   The joy with which she shares her knowledge and experience with her clients is matched only by her passion for making a perfect real estate match.
