About Greg Margliano
Greg is originally from Ocean City New Jersey which is a lovely family resort and a great place to grow up. After high school he attended Northeastern University in Boston where he earned a BA in Finance with a minor in Marketing.
After graduating, Greg's first job was on the New York Stock Exchange Floor with Sanford C. Bernstein Inc. Eventually his success on Wall Street led him to start his own Hedge Fund and run a money management firm for high net worth individuals. After the devastating attack on our country on 9/11 Greg decided that he needed a change from the fast paced intense lifestyle on Wall Street and decided to move to Tampa to be closer to his family and to pursue a career in Real Estate.
Applying the skills he had in running successful businesses and his Wall Street work ethic Greg quickly became successful in the Tampa Bay real estate market and one of the top Realtors in the Tampa Bay area.
Some of his accomplishments include selling out several condo conversions and a number of new construction projects totaling in the hundreds of units. He has also listed and sold property from Lakeland to Tampa and from Pasco to the beaches in St. Petersburg. Greg is currently a Broker/Associate, an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), a Member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM), and since his first year in real estate he has been ranked among the top 1% of Realtors nationally.
In his free time Greg enjoys sailing, fishing, an occasional bad round of golf, and is a self proclaimed car "addict"!

Testimonials of Greg Margliano
Great experience in selling and buying. Very helpful and knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommended team and company to sell or buy a home.
We moved down to Tampa from 18yrs of life in Manhattan, and trying to find a home in such a different city could have been a harried experience. We got VERY lucky and met Greg. As a type A individual relocating from Manhattan, I was initially unsure of Greg's calm, almost passive, demeanor. He did not push us to buy a property, and allowed us to "look around". I know now that this was because he knew, from his years of experience in the field, that we were not ready to commit and buy a home. He got us a condo to rent, about 6 months later, reached out to us. We were familiar with the city and the neighborhoods and was ready to buy by then. I think I manifested even more of the type A personality and the aggressiveness, and emailed him an extremely detailed, lengthy email of my "musts, wants, would-like's but not necessarys" of the home. To my surprise, Greg is very much a type A individual when it pertains to getting the home of your desire. I received an email back of what is possible, what options existed, and what other aspects to consider that I might have overlooked. We met to look at 6 different homes, and each of the 6 homes had what I wanted. When we walked into the last house, we knew that this was exactly what we had been looking for. We made one date to see homes with Greg and was able to find our home. The entire process was without a glitch, and without any wasted time wandering around to see homes that did not meet our requirement. Most importantly, you can trust Greg to do what's right and what's in your best interest. He is deeply rooted in the Tampa real estate market, and wishes to help you buy your home, and continue the great relationship so that he can help sell your home. With such outlook, he has helped connect us to the best people (and economical!) we needed to remodel our floors, cabinets, walls, etc. If you are a serious buyer, even if it's not in the immediate future, Greg is an invaluable agent. You will not find anyone better in the greater Tampa area.Â
Greg has been extremely helpful and gone above my expectations with our negotiation of the Virage Condominium purchase.
Recent Real Estate Transaction
I used Greg for my recent real estate transaction. His professionalism and knowledge of the market is unrivaled. He provided great service and was extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns throughout the entire process.
First Business Property
Working with Greg was a really good experience; in purchasing my first business property I had a lot of questions and concerns; Greg was always available to answer questions and keep me up to date with new listings as they became available; I would HIGHLY recommend him and will be working with him again in the future with further real estate needsÂ
Greg is an Honest Guy
My first career was as a housing contractor and I can tell you that the most important trait for any real-estate agent is integrity. Greg is an honest guy who will spell things out for you and do what is right for your goals and budget. When we began this process my wife emailed Greg a list of priorities and questions, Greg's detailed line-by-line response sold her on him as a businessman; I was convinced by talking to people who had worked with him before. He took us to a number of houses that fit our criteria and financing, none were a waste of time, our favorite was one that his group held the listing for, which is a potentially difficult situation. Greg's clear communication between both parties, his ability to articulate both the buyer's and sellers positions helped everyone involved understand the deal and in the end we were all very happy. Prior to closing I had the house independently inspected and had a real estate investor look at the home and all Greg had told me, including the faults, were true. When you work with Greg you also get the advantage of his contacts. Greg has been in Tampa for a long time and has worked with many different people. For any issue with real estate that you need help with, Greg will give you advice on who to use, and accurately describe them. His referrals have never failed me and all the people he has directed me to have treated me fairly. This has been invaluable as we moved from out of state and know few people in Tampa. Finally, when a family member began looking for a house and needed an agent, but whose budget was roughly 10% what mine was, Greg took care of him as well as he took care of me. Greg understands how important reputation is and that clients are people who need help. He's a good guy and you will be happy you chose Greg.
First Time Home Buyer
As a first time home buyer, I trusted Greg Margliano to find a desirable home for me in the South Tampa area. Not only did he find a great house, but he found my dream home- a brand new model home, full of upgrades with a pool! I was quite impressed with how he listened to exactly what I was looking for and delivered quickly. After my initial consultation with Walters Margliano, I signed a contract on my house in less than a week. Without them- Greg in particular, finding and buying this house would not be possible. I recommend using them for home purchases 100%.
Ultimate Real Estate Professional
Greg is the ultimate real estate professional. He has a very comprehensive insight of the market, clearly understands property valuations, and is incredibly responsive.
Excellent Understanding of the Market
Greg has an excellent understanding of the market. He advised us and worked diligently to get us the best possible deals. His team was always available for questions and to show us new properties. We have used him for more than one transaction and plan on using him for any of our real estate transactions. Thank you for all your hard work.
Greg Came Recommended
Greg came recommended and we were glad we chose him over another realtor. After a week and a half of showings and good feedback our home sold. I would highly recommend him to others in the Tampa area. We moved out of the state of FL or we would definitely use Greg again.
Greg is extremely knowledgeable with the local market and very connected with the community. He was able to find a house that fit my needs in 24 hours and get an offer out in the same day. He is quick to respond and walked us through the process from beginning to end. He is the best in Tampa.
The sale of our house was a very comfortable and positive experience. Greg Marglianoâ€™s professionalism, knowledge of the housing market, business savvy, and laid back demeanor was greatly appreciated. He has a gift in selling real estate, which is shown through his extreme success in sales.
I would go to Greg with no hesitation whatsoever for either side of a real estate transaction. We bought both dirt (a beautiful lot) and a home from him as well as selling our owned property through his team. He has the perfect mix of long term historical knowledge and experience as well as being totally versed in current market conditions and trends. He is a good listener and was really good at zeroing in on properties of interest to us; not a lot of wasted time looking at irrelevant properties. At the same time, he also did a thorough job of educating us on what kinds of properties were available in our price range to help narrow down search criteria. I felt comfortable listening to his advice regarding pricing in general, both on the buying and selling side. He negotiated well and respectfully I think to both buying and selling side representatives. I'd trust him to do the same for us in the future and will absolutely seek out his and the team's services again when the occasion arises.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Greg. He joined our house search mid-stream following a less-than-ideal experience with another agent. Greg picked up the pieces, and became our most trusted advisor in our home search. He made honest recommendations, listened to what we wanted, was always available to us for questions and viewings (often the same day!), and (even after a couple fell through) helped to negotiate a deal that allowed us to buy the SOUTH TAMPA HOUSE OF OUR DREAMS!!! Greg's professionalism, patience, and kindness made the entire experience so much less stressful and helped us to close on our home in 30 days. Definitely a 5-Star Agent and property group.
