In August of 2013 I needed to find a house to rent because I needed to move out of the house I was currently living in at the time. To be honest I was working with two realtors John and another realtor. Actually, John was the second realtor I working with and I ended staying with John and believe me it was the best decision I made. John cares about his clients he listens to their needs and wants in what they’re looking for in a home. Right from the beginning I was able to talk to John, he knows of my past experiences with my last landlord, the passing of my husband. I was staying with a friend for 2 months John knows of the situation and talking with John he knew I was about to go crazy John knew he needed to find me a place right away.Carla Harris
John and I talked just about every other day either by phone or via computer. John would call just to see how I was doing. Talking with John he knew I needed something in town, close to my job, and 4 bedrooms. Finding something in my place range wasn’t easy for John. To make a long story short one weekend John called and said I have two places for you to look at one had 4 bedrooms no dining room very very small rooms the other had 3 bedrooms with a dining room. I liked the 4 bedroom house it was small but I needed a home. John contacted the realtor listed with the house after about a month with no answers or returned calls we knew it wasn’t meet to be.
Then John called me on a Saturday morning and said I have found the perfect home for you. It’s on the street you grew up on, near your church we meet the next day Sunday morning as I’m entering the house I noticed wind chimes hanging near the deck we go inside and look at the house we talked about the price a little above what I wanted to pay, about forty five minutes later John called and said I had the house if I wanted it. I explained to John the significance of the wind chimes and how my husband loved them and he said it was meet to be.
That’s why I called John and still him call him my guardian angel. He really went far above and beyond to find my family and I a home. He worked with the listing realtor and was able to negotiate a rent that I was able to afford. On November 30 2013 John and I went and signed the lease and here it is a year and some months later John and I keep in touch with each other.
If I knew if anyone looking for a place to rent or buy I would definitely recommend John, as your motto says:
Anyone Can Find You a House
John Will Find You A Home
Bill and I would like to thank John Mirra for making our experience buying a home so easy. You truly go the extra mile for your clients. You know the in and outs of the real estate field. Any questions we had, you were right there with the answer. Thank you again for all that you have done to help us.Linda P.
Paul Strachan Jr.I have had the privilege of working with Patricia throughout this home buying process for over a year now.My future fiancé and I have nothing but good words, energy and positivity to say towards Patricia words can not describe how helpful she was.She worked us through a full year without really being prepared for the process at all.I would recommend her service to anyone she is extremely professional as well as genuine with everything she does. We are truly happy with our new home purchase and look forward to working with her in the future regarding our future investments.
John Mirra helped us to buy our beautiful home in The Hudson Valley. We dealt with a few realtors before stumbling upon John... John was immediately very responsive and eager to find us a home. He was also very patient with us when needed. No question was insignificant to John and he truly had our best interest at heart. What we liked most about John was that he LISTENED to us and what we wanted in our new home. He didn't waste our time taking us to homes that did not meet our "wish list". He knew our top priority was finding a great school district for our children and we are so happy he found us this. John also helped us rent our apartment in Rockland county very quickly to quality tenants who are still renting from us. Our experience with John was top notch and would recommended his services to all our friends and family! John also has a great sense of humor which makes working with him fun! "Very Happy Customer"!Helen Godfrey
I have worked on projects with Layla for a number of years. Layla is a professional and a pleasure to work with. She possesses an incredible amount of energy and works very hard for her clients. This is evident in her efforts to market her properties. I highly recommend Layla as an experienced, skilled, and personable professional!Bryan Hengst
Layla can't tell you how happy we are. You did such an amazing job. It's not easy to sell someone's childhood home and purchase new construction all in one day. Thanks again for everything!!!!Lance & Emily Whitman
Good afternoon my name is Conrad Emery, my family and I currently reside in Goshen, NY. We are originally from the Bronx. About 8 yrs ago we came across John Mirra while looking for a realtor to help us find and purchase a home in Orange County. John was very resourceful, knowledgable and honest when it came to looking at potential homes my wife is very picky but that did not deter John, he met every demand and must have that my wife wanted. It took us 18 months to find our dream home and through out it all John was right there giving us hope, even when we thought we would never find a home. His attitude never changed as the seasons did, he was more determined than we were to find our home! Even up to the closing John never left our side. My wife and I were very blessed to have found him.Conrad Emery
Layla can't tell you how happy we are. You did such an amazing job. It's not easy to sell someone's childhood home and purchase new construction all in one day. Thanks again for everything!!!!Lance and Emily Whitman
I am a first-time home buyer and I've been working with John Mirra for several months to find a home. It has been a great pleasure working with John. From my very first encounter with John when he reached out to me to introduce himself. I was pleased with how he interacted with me to obtain necessary information to help me find what I was looking for.
Buying a home is not an easy process as I ran into a few kinks but working with John made it better. John has been flexible and has always been able to accommodate me and answer my questions and provide resources for various things involved with the home buying process. I could tell that John is committed to what he does and I am happy that I had the opportunity to work with him to find my first home.Diane C.

I just would like to make a comment about John Mirra, Real Estate Agent. I met John in 2009 when I was forced to sell my house post divorce and he was assisting me in looking for an apartment rental. I eventually found one through a private listing, yet John was once again available when it was time for me to move a year later (temporary situation). He assisted me in securing an apartment at a condo complex I was determined to rent with in Monroe, even though he was not the listing agent in 2010. I was very happy to secure this place for two years that I had hoped to rent. He has kept in touch and is always available to answer questions no matter how much time has gone by. I have recovered from post-divorce financial issues and have been renting in Highland Falls for over four years. John has always made it known he is only a phone call away if I need another rental or I am ready to take the next step in securing my own home again. It’s very nice to know that John is always interested in helping me find a home no matter what my circumstances are! He is an asset to any company! As he says, anyone can find you a house, but he will find you a HOME!
Layla I just wanted to let you know how happy Linda and I are with your quick responses to all of our questions regarding the sale of our house. This is very important to us and we appreciate it very much. Your professionalism is the reason why we chose you and your company to represent us.Les and Linda Howard
John at Monroe Realty Center, Inc. Did a remarkable job by helping me get into my new apartment. We had a 4 day window to get everything done and he did it. When he says he'll get it done he means it. I cant thank him enough for the help he gave.Nick Salgado
John Mirra sold our building at 26 Gilbert Street extension in Monroe in 2014.
He worked tirelessly to get it sold and was always in contact with me to discuss what was happening in the market.
He always returned phone calls promptly and always conducted himself in a professional manner.
John was always hands on and worked very hard to get my building sold.
I would work with John again if the opportunity ever presented itself.
Mat Manufacturing Corp
I would like to say thanks for all the effort John Mirra put into selling my house at 119 Bodle Cr, Maybrook NY. He was a pleasure to work with and went out of his way several times to accommodate my needs and request. He is an asset to your company, with his positive attitude and friendly demeanor, I will use him again selling my other property. I also look forward to using his services buying our new home.Kevin Zullo
I’m writing this not to thank you for the amazing help, support and guidance throughout the process of buying our first home. As you are well aware buying a home is a daunting and overwhelming experience, even more so for a first-time homebuyer. You made us feel at ease, provided us with knowledge and guidance throughout. We are extremely appreciative for your patience when answering all of our questions, especially how lovingly you addressed my daughter with all the questions related to her new school. We also want to thank you for always listening to what we wanted, even when we weren’t saying it out loud. Your professionalism is evident in every step of the process. We will wholeheartedly recommend you and Monroe Realty to anyone and everyone who is looking for an agent. We also consider you a friend and neighbor even though we just met! Thank you so much your excellent services have meant the world to us!
Again, THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUT HEART!! YOU WERE AMAZING!!Monica Martell, Socrates and Sabrina De Jesus
I can't thank you enough for the time and effort and hard work you put in to selling my house. Traipsing through the snow to show it to the inspectors just was one example of what you had to go through. You dealt with the radon problem and went back to take the samples and mail them, thank you for that too. I always knew that between you and Layla, I was in the best hands possible.
The thing that I always appreciated about the two of you, was that you were always accessible which meant so much as I was not in the area. There was not one time when you didn't either return a question of mine with a phone call, or e-mail. Thank you, Patricia. Know how much I appreciate what you did. You and Layla are a wonderful team.Ann Horner
The Dario FamilyMy family experience with Patricia Spagna was fantastic, she made the whole process pleasant and calming. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful. We're almost certain that she went beyond her duties to help us find and acquire our home. Dealing with Patricia she didn't make us feel like just a client, she made us feel like we were the best of friends. She was always there to answer our questions and always returned our calls. Her suggestions was always clever and very useful (listen to her when she tells you something). We would definitely recommend Patricia to anyone looking to buy a home. We are so happy with the home she helped us find. We not only find a home I also found a friend.Patricia, thank you so much for your patience and your kindness. Like I always tell you "You are an Angel". God bless you and thank you....The Dario Family
I would just like you to know how happy we were in working with John Mirra during our search for a new home in Monroe. With us being first time home buyers, he made the whole process a breeze and has constantly guided us from searching a home and up til closing. He was always available if we had any questions and has gone above and beyond more than once if we ran into any issues. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know that is planning on moving to Orange County area.Bobby and Katrina Dalmacion
I have used Layla Rose several times with great success, after speaking with her the first time we met I just knew she would be very reliable and consistently trustworthy. She has a great knowledge about, and exactly what our needs are and what we are looking for. It was a pleasure working with Layla Rose and my associates and I look forward to the next time we work together.Gene Schwanke
A big THANK YOU goes out to Rosemarie Karg for her help in finding me the home of my dreams. Thanks to her expert negotiation skills, I was able to secure a nice piece of property at an amazing price. I could not have done it without her. Rosemarie became an extended member of my family too. My aunt, grandmother and siblings all had a great experience with her. She is very professional, kind and got right down to business when we needed to. I had a a great time working with her and I know I will be requesting her services again when Im ready for my next venture into the real estate jungle. I highly recommend Rosemarie. I am one happy Ex-Brooklynite!Frankie D. Wright
I wanted to take a moment to offer my gratitude to one of your salespeople - John Mirra. Our home was on the market for sometime and we were getting discouraged - difficult market time for home resales. We spoke with John and explained our situation that we now lived some 4 hours away in Pa. and were naturally apprehensive about our chances of success in such a shaky market. John assured us that he would do his very best to help us move this property and in short order he accomplished that and more.
There was some minor work that needed to done at the house and John was there for us - offering to meet contractors at the property and in some cases recommending trustworthy people to help us. Again, being so far away and unable to really vet the contractors - his assistance was invaluable. His recommendations were professional, reasonable and got the job done in short order. I don’t know how we would have managed to make that trip back and forth so many times (not spring chicks anymore). Johns knowledge of the local market and current buying trends were invaluable in completing the process. We are now just waiting on the banks and attorneys to come together and get a closing date set within the next two weeks.
I don’t know how this experience could have been any better for us and it’s all thanks to John. Any snag that came up John always responded with a calm demeanor. No problem - I’ll take care of it. You hear that often but in this case John actually did as he said and delivered on all of his promises. We are thrilled that Monroe Realty handled our sale and even happier that John was our agent. Thanks again.Paul and Joanne Daly
Dear Patricia,The Rodriguez Family
After finally settling down in our beautiful home, we wanted to thank you for finding the perfect home for my family. We really liked the fact that you listened to everything we wanted in a new home and showed us those homes, while also keeping us in our price range. Lastly, thanks for the patience you showed us when it came time for us to make an offer and never pressured us into making a quick decision. If we ever know anyone who is looking to buy a home we will gladly recommend you as a realtor.
I am a former client of John Mirra. I utilized John to rent a home in Middletown in 2013 and he did such a great job I referred him to a friend of mine who he also helped in Orange County. John is a likable, personable and honest agent. If I were to be asked for an agent in Orange County I would refer all to John. Understand that I know many, many other RE agents but John is the one I entrusted to help me when I needed his expertise most. I am now a home owner in PA but if I ever go back to Orange County, NY and he is still in the business I would not hesitate one iota before contacting him.Carlos Soto
Buying a house is an exciting time, but it can also be very stressful. Working with Patricia Spagna with Monroe Realty Center, Inc. was a pleasure from start to finish. Patricia always made us as if we were her #1 client and concern. She addressed any questions or concerns we had and always made us feel at ease. She listened well and was able to direct us to the home of our dreams. Her patience, understanding and fast respond time to our issues made this not only a pleasurable situation, but the beginning of a wonderful business relationship. She was even able to direct us to an inspector and mortgage broker to make the whole experience complete.
We would recommend to anyone looking for a home to work with Patricia Spagna. You will be glad you did and the experience would be made easy and rewarding. Patricia is a professional, knows her job well and is a world of knowledge in the field.
Thank you Patricia for all your help and support in putting us in the home of our dreams. Our “Tranquility Cottage” fulfills our every dream and expectation of the home we wanted to call our own.Suzanne and Patrick Flannigan
Patricia Spagna really helped me find the right condominium, in a location that I preferred and at a price I could not resist. During the journey from showing to closing, Patricia was patient, polite, and helpful. In these days and times, with all of the new regulations on mortgages and lending, it can be confusing and mysterious. Patricia is able to guide and explain the customer through the process in a way that builds confidence and ultimately gets the job done. I would recommend Patricia to anyone I know as my agent of choice. Patricia made the right referrals to get my loan serviced and approved. Patricia adeptly dealt with coordination communication between all parties involved to close the deal in a timely manner.Matt R.
John Mirra is a great person and a honest person. I found him to be very helpful when I was looking for a realtor to rent both my house and apt. He listened to my concerns about what kind of tenants I wanted and in each case he took the time to find the right ones. He not only is a realtor in my opinion, he becomes a friend. One you can rely on in making changes in the home if needed. He also can give you advice on things in the home that make a difference to the renter or buyer. I appreciated any input he gave me an was not sorry for taking his suggestions.Marie Salom
I've had the pleasure of working along side Layla Rose and her energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and dedication are all really rare. Not only is she super creative, intelligent and hard-working, she is so fun and inspiring to be around. She provides enough positive energy for a whole room of people and it certainly always is contagious.Steve Silver
We wanted someone who would communicate to us on a personal level and Patricia did just that. There are realtors that push some properties on clients even though it’s out of their range, but Patricia always stayed true to what we wanted and made sure that this process was not stressful. Patricia has been an amazing Realtor and we greatly appreciate everything she has done, especially with quick responses to all of our questions. Thank you for everything you have done.Kirsten and William
We highly recommend Layla! it's clear, she's extremely caring & pays close attention to detail for her clients. Given her knowledge of the area and understanding of client needs, enables her to find the perfect property with ease. Combines some rare traits for a Realtor in a market where a quick buck means more to many than integrity and building a long lasting business relationship. She is extremely trustworthy and honest, and loved working with her!Catharine Maketa
Dear Rose Marie, Loretta and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your dedication to your profession and your hard work to help us find a beautiful home for our granddaughter and her family we had several people working on it and it was going nowhere, when I spoke to you and explained the problem you responded immediately you went above and beyond what you had to do to make it happen quickly. The kids are happy in their new home, they now have plenty of room our great grandchildren are running all over the place and having a good time thanks to your efforts. Loretta and I would have no problem recommending you to anyone. Thanks again!Loretta & John Cavaliere
Hi Patricia, working with you was a pleasure. You were very informative, knowledgeable, and flexible throughout the home buying process. You were quick to respond with any and all questions that came up during the viewings, and helped us decide on purchasing a home we are very pleased with. I feel very comfortable recommending your services to anyone looking at home purchase in orange county in the future.Neesha Duggal
