Rocco was attending Danforth Tech High School, when his brother introduced him to Gail, a shy fellow student. They hit it off and eventually started a life together and are now going on 53 years of marriage. After high school Rocco drove a taxi for over 10 years, often feeling like a psychiatrist and getting to learn not just the city but also better understand people. Gail worked in office administration for a small bank. Rocco decided to enter real estate in 1982 when the couple was selling one of their homes and he strongly disagreed with the price the realtors were placing on the home...he felt it was worth much more. So, he decided to get his real estate license and try and sell it himself, only to discover that the realtors were right about the price. Yet, it was the beginning of a new career for Rocco and within a few years he found himself needing help with his growing business. He asked his wife to leave her job and join him. Rocco and Gail have been in the business working together over 32 years and still continue to learn and grow within the business working with Sellers and Buyers in and around the GTA.
