About Mario Berno

My Client-First Philosophy

I am a full time REALTOR® dedicated to my profession and clients.

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Greater Trail and Christina Lake waterfront real estate professional, I have also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.


This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I have found that the latest technologies is enabling me to do everything I have always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Trail, Rossland, Warfield, Montrose, Fruitvale, or Christina Lake areas, please contact me.
