About Rino

My approach to this business

Rino Maddalena Rino offers a different approach to his real estate practice by approaching his client more as a consultant, educating and guiding versus a typical salesperson selling and pressuring. He does this by fulfilling the role of being a trusted advisor and his purpose is to help his clients make good decisions that are best for them.

After college, he worked in Washington, D.C. and specifically on Capitol Hill as a public relations representative for a variety of trade associations and has successfully transferred the skills he learned negotiating with congressional representatives to his real estate practice.

A native of Maryland and a resident of Montgomery County for over 30 years, Rino has extensive knowledge of the metro region allowing his clients an opportunity to cast a wider search.

Rino is affiliated with a company that maintains high standards of honesty and integrity, believes in always putting the client first, is advanced in its technology, is full service, has market success and the most powerful marketing advantages that you won't find anywhere else. What this means is that his clients are assured they will receive the highest level of quality service.

Rino resides in Rockville with his wife Laurie, daughter Olivia, and son Luca.
