Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties is pleased to welcome Broker Associate Joe Rivello to the Newport Beach office. An industry veteran with over 35 years of experience, Rivello has a successful background in residential sales, property development, and real estate investing.

Rivello is excited to be the newest associate for John McMonigle’s team, a group of accomplished real estate professionals that represent some of Southern California’s most luxurious homes and coastal estates.

“We’re excited to have Joe on the team,” says McMonigle, the team’s founder and principal. “Our associates are hand-selected for their professionalism and understanding of negotiations, market valuations, and client service. Joe has a proven track record in all of these areas.”

A lifetime resident of Southern California, Rivello believes that his complex knowledge of the area’s neighborhoods and client-centered approach will make him a valued member of the McMonigle Team. “Working with John and the team will take my career to the next level,” explains Rivello, who has a working proficiency in Spanish. “I look forward to learning from them and I hope to incorporate my experience to help drive the team’s success.”

Over the years Rivello has not only managed, renovated and sold a large number of properties, he also founded his own successful property development firm. Throughout his professional endeavors, he has earned a reputation for his enthusiasm and high standards of personal integrity.

“I always put myself in my clients’ shoes,” explains Rivello, who has a background in finance. “It comes from my genuine passion for real estate.”

Rivello’s passion does not end with real estate, however. He is an active supporter of Christopher’s Way, Snowball Express, the American Breast Cancer Foundation and the OC Chapter of the ALS. When he is not working, Rivello enjoys spending time with his family, riding motorcycles and relaxing on California’s beaches.
