Louis A. DiRisioBroker/Owner
Louis DiRisio is the Broker/Founder of Realty 3, LLC, a Rochester–based boutique real estate firm offering a comprehensive array of residential brokerage services. Lou was destined for a successful real estate career since childhood. From the time he was old enough to hold a hammer, Lou learned about homes and building from his father and uncle who had established a reputation as one of the area’s most accomplished craftsmen of custom built homes. It’s no wonder that Lou inherited not only their passion for real estate, but the dedication, integrity and business acumen that today fuels his success. Lou is a graduate of St. John Fisher College and the University of Rochester’s Simon School of Business. Before turning to real estate, Lou excelled in the telecom and banking industries, where he fine-tuned his organizational, analytical, financial and negotiating skills. It wasn’t long before he realized that his heart was with the homebuilding industry. So in 1986 together with his brother Bill, Lou founded DiRisio Builders, Inc., carrying on the family tradition: crafting quality custom homes with unparalleled attention to detail and backed by uncompromising customer service.
Fast forward to 2006 when Lou established Realty 3 LLC, a nimble and creative independent real estate brokerage firm, to ensure that his building clients receive a superior level of service throughout the entire new home buying/building process. It soon became apparent that Realty 3’s closely integrated team of knowledgeable, experienced and reputable professionals could be leveraged to also benefit existing home buyers and sellers – ensuring a smooth and successful conclusion to every real estate transaction.
The majority of Lou’s business is by referral, generated by more than twenty-five years of satisfied buyers and sellers who view him as the consummate professional. Lou is admired and respected by his colleagues for his hallmark combination of modesty, determination and skill and has forged many a unique and enduring relationship with his clients and their families.
Lou spends his free time with his wife, Keli and their son Matthew. He also finds time to sneak away to work on his golf game. Lou supports a number of charitable organizations and is a member of local, state and national Realtor and home builder associations.
