Licensed for over 6 years, Anna is a graduate of The University of Cincinnati, where she studied marketing. Anna specializes in working with buyers to find their dream home and also works closely with our sellers to ensure their listing and listing media is top-notch before hitting the market.

Whether it be sending copies of your paperwork, giving periodic updates, or scheduling your closing, she is always clued in on the details of each file. Taria’s motto is “I’m here for you!”
Living in the Dayton area for almost 18 years, Amy worked in corporate America before pursuing her passion of real estate. She hit the ground running and has become our buyer specialist in new construction and luxury real estate. She is a local Springboro resident, wife of 20 years to husband, Bryan Braswell and proud mom to their 13-year-old daughter, Olivia. When she isn’t helping you search for your dream home, you can find her cheering on her daughter, Olivia, at horse shows and cheerleading competitions.
Tyler is the newest member of our team and off to a quick start! He was born and raised in Springboro and is now a current resident of the Cincinnati area. In this fast-paced market, it is of key importance to us to be readily available to all of our buyers – Tyler makes catering to our Cincinnati clientele at the drop of a hat possible. We want our buyers to get in the front door of their dream home as soon as possible; No time to wait!
Stew may be the newest member of The Castro Team, but he certainly isn’t new to the Dayton area. Stew has spent the last 11 years working in acquisitions at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, sitting across the table negotiating high-dollar deals with many of our nation’s largest defense contractors. In 2020, Stew made it his goal to combine his acquisitions experience with his years of personal involvement in the rental property community, and ultimately pursue his real estate license. Stew joined the Castro Team in October 2020 with a primary focus on helping with our growing list of investor clientele. When he isn’t working on base or showing investment properties, he spends his time with his wife Jessica and their two dogs, Charlie and Weller.
