Co-founder & Realtor®
With over six years of residential development, property design, and land acquisition experience, Raffaellina Merlino’s journey into real estate began alongside her business partner and husband as co-founders of the Cityscape Development Group. Raffaellina is a top real estate sales leader serving as a liaison between the millennial home buyer and dream home builder in Philadelphia and South New Jersey. Selling over 50 units in her first two years of business, Raffaellina came into the industry after leaving the corporate world as a business development manager for high luxury fashion brands such as Christian Dior. Her recent venture into mix-use commercial building has sparked a new passion for community development and small business initiative.
As a North Jersey native she believes that she has the “newcomer“ advantage, where she sees so many positive opportunities and attributes that Philadelphia has to offer . When she’s not building or selling homes in Philadelphia, you can find her serving less fortunate communities around the world. Her most recent trip was to the “garbage dump” community in Guatemala, where she and her team built two homes for less fortunate families. With 10% of every home sale donated this year, she hopes to make a difference in the world through green initiatives.
Raffaellina is the co -founder of Table Share, a Christian based charitable organization that believes in serving and engaging. Raffaellina is also an alumni of the Fairleigh Dickinson University school of International Tourism and Hospitality. Growing up around entrepreneurs and restaurateurs, motivated Raffaellina to discover her passion for working with people and serving.
Raffaellina is a new mother to her daughter Avia which has sparked her initiative even more to serve the women around her and to inspire them to be their best selves through empowerment, partnership and mentorship.
