    Albert Celeste, Weichert Realtor and Licensed Public Adjuster
    Realtor & Licensed Public Adjuster
    Having graduated FSH in 1977, I'd had enough of school and went into the USAF. I spent 4 years as a Crew Chief on C-130's. Little did I realize it then but they were a great 4 years. I believe all young adults should spend some time in the US Military if not attending college. Worked at Solomon Brothers in NYC (4yrs).  Series 7 license in October of 1987 (Ugh) and eventually spent the next 9 years with Prudential, Citibank and Chase Bank, chasing commissions. I eventually became a Licensed Public Insurance Adjuster. I am a consumer advocate for Homeowners and Business Owners who have property claims AGAINST their insurance company. After 22 years of Claims, I needed to add to my repetoire and Real Estate seemed like the natural fit. I am thrilled to be involved with the Weichert Realtor's Team of Joseph and Jared Garcia, along with Anthony Garcia. Thank you for your acceptance into the Chamber and I look forward to meeting and working with you all. Peace. Albert
