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..

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.
