Sometimes you get far more then you pay for. A service that cost me nothing matched me with one of the finest Real Estate Agents in the city. She seemingly knows someone for every single step of the processes that are necessary to buy a house, as well as having pretty spot on knowledge of the nuts and bolts of houses. Any questions I had (and there were many) she either knew from experience or could get me the answer the same day. I am embarrassed to admit how many times I texted her after business hours about something petty or non pressing and received a response in a few minutes or the next day. Im equally embarrassed to admit that I was a nightmare home buyer who had to be shown dozens of houses with lengthy checklists of needs/wants on a shoestring budget. Dina found me a house that checked all my boxes and waded into real estate battle with a nightmare "for sale buy owner" seller. I have a few friends who bought homes before me who recommended realtors to me that were less (as they described them) responsive or affable as Dina was. 5 stars for Zillow's realtor matching service and 5/5 stars for Dina Castillo.

She helped us buy our second house and then helped us quickly sell our first home in less than a week. She is a knowledgeable/experienced agent and is very familiar with the current market trends. She also has a vast network of contacts within the real estate world. When a problem arises (and it always does), she knows the person to call in order to fix it. She is a stellar negotiator landing us over asking price for the house we sold. She is easy to get a hold of and hustles to take care of business. You can tell that she has a passion for her career as a real estate agent. She always has a positive attitude and a smile on her face. You can’t go wrong with Lauren!

Dina was very helpful from the beginning with ensuring she was addressing my husband and my many needs related to purchasing or first home. We had an issue under contract that was not Dina's fault nor responsibility, however she was able to provide solutions almost immediately to help rectify the situation, demonstrating how much she genuinely cares about her clients and their overall experience during this stressful process. Dina is professional, reliable, honest, and fair. I strongly recommend Dina whether you are a first time home buyer or not. She even took the time to provide extra follow ups post closing to ensure my husband and I were happy. Go with Dina! The best in Pittsburgh.

From my first conversation with her I could tell she was the perfect agent to sell our house. Her knowledge of the housing market for the South Hills of Pittsburgh is incredible. The professional photographer she had take photos for our listing was amazing. She truly captured our house from all the right angles and made it show online like the warm and inviting home it is. Our home was under agreement in under 48 hours from listing. Unfortunately, the original buyers weren’t ready to own a home that was 90 years old. Not to worry, Lauren had new buyers lined up and ready to go the following day. If you are looking to buy or sell a home give Lauren a call!

This was my first house and I had no idea on the legal-requirements, processes, documents and negotiations. Dina went above and beyond to make the first time home buying like a cakewalk. Her process knowledge like making a full chronological road map of things to be done with specific dates, to her suggested team of extremely knowledgeable experts for closing, mortgage, insurance who would respond to my calls and text in minutes even on weekends and holidays. The whole process was excellently handled to closure. I still remember asking her in the middle of the process "Is home buying, this simple always"? Her prompt reply was "NO" then she added "but you have a great agent!". I cannot agree more.

She is the most fun, on point agent I have ever worked with! Having been an agent previously, I knew the process pretty well but my experience was in another state, and Lauren was the exact agent we were looking for! She is helpful, knowledgeable in all necessary areas, timely (not on realtor time hehe), funny, and just really great to work with. If you need an agent in the South hills and beyond she should be your first call.

When I was ready to get serious, I got really serious and needed to move fast (wanted to move before my second child arrived!) . She was completely unfazed with our timeline and we went from viewing to offering to closing in six weeks! She had great recommendations for us as first time home buyers and helped us through the process. She was very communicative, calm, and down to earth in what can be a crazy process. I definitely recommend working with Dina!

She was his agent to help him buy a home for his family and he highly recommended her. She encouraged me that we would find the perfect home for my needs and we did! She is extremely professional and navigated the process so well that we could close a few days early! I have bought and sold other homes before and she is far and away the best agent I have worked with.

She has a true acumen for real estate and handled everything flawlessly. Her myriad talents also include her beautiful eye for detail with staging, and collaborative efforts with the photographer. Her creative vision for marketing is unmatched. She handled the sale of our prior home, and the purchase of our current one during a pandemic- unbelievable! We couldn’t be happier with the outcome, and she is to thank! If you’re looking for a realtor who is thoughtful and fabulous, we highly recommend Dina!

She marketed our house so well, negotiated a price we were comfortable with, and sold it in less than two weeks! As far as buying she moved fast which was needed in the market we were working in and got us our dream house! We would recommend Lauren to anyone!

At the time, we didn't have an agent, but we started talking and just hit it off! Location was a big deal for us, and her knowledge of the South Hills market was very helpful. We are first-time home buyers, so the process could've felt overwhelming, but Dina always had our backs. She spent countless hours helping us get into our dream home, going above and beyond for us every step of the way. Not all agents are created equal, and Dina Castillo is a head above the rest!

Lauren was very helpful and patient, even showing homes to our family before we arrived. In the end she found a lovely home that wasn’t listed publicly yet. I was happy with Lauren’s availability and commitment to find the right home for our family.

She was spot on with market evaluation and home improvement suggestions that led in our selling the house within 24 hours above the asking price. It was a pleasure to work with her for her responsiveness and great attitude.

She's such a lovely person and would recommend her to every one looking for a real estate resource!

Lauren is a rockstar. My wife and I started looking in 2017 and Lauren stuck with us for a year until we found the right house. She helped educate us on everything along the way.

Lauren was very professional, responsive and had a great sense of urgency during the home buying process! We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable realtor. Thank you!
Buyer
She was very helpful in finding excellent houses in our price range, and came up with a number of recommendations for us. I would say she specializes in young couples.
Buyer
