Hi George! Lets start from the beginning. How did you get started in Real Estate?
I became a real estate agent because I saw a need for change in a very dated industry. Real Estate has become too much of a transaction and less of an experience. I wanted to give a fun and exciting spin to Real Estate by actually treating people like family. Since inception, the Scarpias Team has grown to a team of twelve like-minded, local parents.
What is your connection to Long Island?
Born and raised in Massapequa and a resident for almost 40 years, I have deep roots in the community. I graduated Massapequa High School as captain of the men’s soccer team and have three beautiful children in the school system. In fact, our entire team are local moms and dads.
My business involves buying, selling and renting both Residential and Commercial properties from Montauk to Manhattan. We have many ties to the local markets and have become some of the most referred agents in the local Moms and Dads Groups on Facebook. We are proud to have brought a fun and exciting real estate experience to over 400 local families from these groups.
What is one thing your team is known for over your competitors?
We give a one of a kind experience by always going above and beyond for our clients. Our family first approach makes every client part of the family.
We believe going the extra mile makes a world of a difference. Real Estate fast & furious leaves you with many questions. Our goal is to make your deal as smooth as possible.
What would you want current or potential clients to know about your business that they may not know already?
During the holiday season, we run a Christmas light show on our house that we customize with music and dancing lights. We are known as “The Massapequa Christmas House” on Facebook. We collect toys and donations for a local children’s hospital. During the pandemic, we were able to donate 10,000 “ear savers” for first responders.
What is the biggest “win” in your business’ history?
The biggest “win” for our business I would say, has to be the massive support we have received from the local Moms and Dads groups. The support has been amazing over the years and we are so unbelievably grateful every single day. The George Scarpias Team has become a household name for anything Real Estate.
Has your business won any awards?
Yes we have! We are proud of all of the awards and recognitions we have received:
- Companywide Top Listing & Sales Agent 2017-2020
- Top 20 Under 40 Rising Star
- Coach Pinnacle Agent Top 1% Sales Long Island

You mentioned the charitable work you have done through your Christmas House. What other charities and community groups are you involved with?
