Our mission is to develop long-term client relationships by providing the most professional, informative, loyal and dedicated service in the real estate industry.


It is a tough market for buyers right now and you need to be prepared and position yourself to compete for your new home. There are a lot of factors to consider such as taxes, community, municipal services oil versus gas and the list goes on. Contact us to help you prepare!


If you are thinking of selling your home you should talk to us BEFORE you start making renovations and changes. We can guide you through the process and give you an estimate of what your house will likely sell.


 The most important steps in selling your home are preparing it for sale (clean out and updates) and pricing it correctly based on the condition from the onset. It's a well-known fact that overpriced homes take longer to sell and sell for a lower price. Be prepared!

About Festa Home Team

We work primarily in West Hartford, Simsbury, Farmington, Hartford, Avon, Newington, Wethersfield, Canton, Rocky Hill and other nearby towns. We focus our efforts on residential real estate and we prefer to work directly with buyers and sellers spanning all price ranges and property types.

Ana is multi-lingual and can speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and French majoring in languages at the University of Connecticut. Meanwhile Tom is still working on English after spending his entire life in the US and graduating from Fairfield University. Our combined and shared interest is our love of travel, meeting people in other countries and cultures and spending quality time getting to know people. Our interests are shared but we have complementary skill sets.

Ana has been licensed in real estate since 1997 and is the managing broker for eXp Realty of CT where she is involved in hundreds of contracts every year. Every transaction is different and experience is critical – a real estate purchase of sale is a major life decision (for most of us) and having Ana on your team is invaluable. Ana is a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), a member of GHAR, ECAR, CAR and NAR and probably some other acronyms we’re overlooking. In the past Ana has held other designations including the CDPE (Certified Distressed Properties Expert), the ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) and was an Accredited Staging Professional.

Tom’s background in real estate also spans back to 1997 but he didn’t get his license until 2019. Tom spent his time behind the scenes running “the show”, creating websites, networking computers, setting up mail servers and anything needed to keep the lights on. His experience ranges from running the IT department of a travel company overseeing 40+ offices, business analyst at Lincoln Financial, partial owner of RE/MAX Premier in West Hartford until 2010, owner of a technical services company and director of project development at a national digital marketing company..

We have worked with Ana three times, as both a buying and selling agent and would highly recommend her. Her expert knowledge of the market and excellent negotiation skills were key in getting us our new home. She has a great attitude and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her expertise and demeanor made a sometimes nerve-wracking process bearable. She responded to all our calls and requests promptly and kept us up-to date on the status every step of the way. We recommend her to all of our friends and will definitely be working with her again when we are ready to sell/buy again.

My husband and I recently used Ana as our realtor when buying our first house in West Hartford. She was amazing. Kind, caring, patient, accessible. I would highly recommend her. I always felt like she has our best interest at heart and always helped lead us in the right direction.
