Century 21 Semiao and Associates announces that Billy Pena and Amelia Pena have joined their marketing team. Formerly agents at BH&G Coccia Realty of Kearny, the Penas led the area in listings and sales for the past three years.

Amelia, a lifelong resident of Kearny, is very active in the Portuguese and Brazilian community. The New Jersey Association of Realtors recently presented her with the coveted Circle of Excellence Award, Silver Level for 2014 and Billy, born and raised in Kearny, also was awarded the Silver Level this past year. Together they are credited with generating more than $24 million in real estate transactions for 2014.

“We are proud to have the Pena team join our company,” said Fernando Semiao, broker-owner. “Amelia is a well-respective professional within the Hudson and Essex County markets. She is a current member of the Board of Directors of The Portuguese Cultural Association of Kearny and is a caring professional who strives to fulfill her customers’ needs.”

“I chose to join an organization that values and rewards its agent’s hard work. Century 21 Semiao and Associates has built a quality reputation over the past 20 years within the real estate community, and I wanted to affiliate with a company I could be proud of,” said Amelia.

“Billy Pena represents the new face of real estate. His tenacity for meeting customers’ needs and expectations have helped him dominate the Kearny area market over the past three years,” said Semiao. “Billy has 11 years of real estate experience and 16 years of experience in sales and customer service,” Semiao said. “Billy takes great pride in providing his clients and customers with the best of service and care and his goal is to help buyers realize their dream of purchasing a home and to help seller’s sell their home for top dollar.” Establishing clients for life, said Billy, is most important to him. He cited Century 21 Semiao’s “indepth” advertising and marketing of properties and its commitment to client satisfaction as his primary reasons for joining the company.

Billy’s background as a financial consultant, said Semiao, allows him to better counsel his customers on mortgage programs and real estate investments. He has worked as a personal financial representative, providing service in auto, home, long-term care, life insurance, mortgages and wills. He also specializes in mutual fund investing, retirement planning, annuities and college savings plans. Billy’s membership in The Portuguese Cultural Association of Kearny and The Asian Real Estate Association of America’s annual “A” List is viewed as a reflection of the organization’s diverse and talented membership. The list recognizes top producers serving Asian American homeowners and communities. Billy earned a bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Montclair State University. Billy is proud to be a member of the Pre-Cana at Saint Stephens Church in Kearny and part of the Kearny UEZ.

Both Penas are fluent in Portuguese and Spanish.
