Gina was raised with the understanding that she owes much of her success to the people in the communities she serves, and investing in them is another one of her passions.  Over the past 21 years, Guarino has served on the St. John Evangelist Home and School Board as Treasurer, Vice President and President, while coaching various soccer teams, tee-ball teams and cheerleading squads throughout the tri-town area.  She's currently the President of the Rosewood Estates Property Owners Association and a proud member of the St. John Chamber of Commerce.  She also contributes a portion of every commission she earns to the Coldwell Banker Charitable Foundation including the Ronald McDonald House.


Guarino’s first foray into the industry was at age 16 when she was hired as a part-time secretary at her mother’s brokerage.  At the age of 21 she earned her real estate license, and as a sign of the success that would eventually follow, sold her first home within that same week.  Although she took a few years off to start a family about 20 years ago, Guarino never lost her desire or drive to work in real estate.  When the 2008 recession distressed the real estate industry, Guarino turned to Coldwell Banker.  Though it was Guarino’s first experience in a corporate environment, she easily surpassed her own expectations, becoming the #1 CB Agent in Northwest Indiana.  Gina’s long track record in the Real Estate Industry includes:

Top CB NWI Agent
24 years of sales experience

Guarino can find you your dream home or get you top dollar for the home you wish to sell!

*We're very pleased with how our first home sale went, thanks to Gina and her team. We interviewed a number of Realtors before ultimately selecting Gina. We felt that her professionalism, energy, passion and tools that she employs made her the best fit for us. Our house was on the market for 17 days before we got the offer we approved. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gina and use her in the future!

* We have lived in Indiana for 12 years and have always heard that if you want to sell your home in a timely manner, and get the price you want, that Gina is the realtor for you. We had the pleasure of using Gina's services this year and all I can say is if we didn't have Gina selling our home, we never would have closed. She works 24/7 and is always available to speak with you. She never makes you feel as though you are taking up too much of her time as other realtors do. I have no problem recommending her to family and friends. And in fact, you would be foolish not to use her.

* Gina sold my house and assisted me in the purchase of my new location. Her knowledge and expertise of the market made both experiences remarkable. From the very beginning to the closing, every facet of the process went smoothly. Whenever I had a question or concern, she would respond very quickly. I HIGHLY recommend Gina as your agent.

* Gina guided us through both the buying and selling process. Our house in Crown Point was under contract within a week of listing. Her internet marketing and photography was exceptional. On the buyer side, she navigated us through the difficult process of buying a bank owned property. Her relentless effort, negotiation skills, and knowledge of the Saint John area resulted in us securing the home of our dreams at an unbelievable price. I recommend Gina without reservation. There is not a better agent in Northwest Indiana.

* Gina is a seasoned professional who truly looks out for the best interest of her client during a sale. Gina is knowledgeable in her market and knows the "ins and outs" of the business, she's also a very caring and genuine person who goes the extra mile to do things right. She understands the needs of her customers and helps them achieve their goals.

*GINA=Amazing. Professional, Accommodating, Sincere, Trustworthy, Accountable, Dedicated. Always goes above and beyond. She’s The Best!!

*Gina Guarino helped me buy my dream home and I feel this would not have been possible without her. She is extremely knowledgeable in her profession. She was always available when I needed her and very prompt. I feel that I can now say that Gina Guarino is not only my realtor for life but also my friend.

*Gina was extremely professional and confidential. She investigated our taxes and even got them reduced. Her pricing was right on and suggestions proved fruitful. Gina knows her business!
