Managing family wealth while exercising caution and wisdom for the sake of improving our clients lives
The world moves at a fast pace, with a lot of noise to distract people from making sound financial decisions. We believe that like using a GPS on any long trip, people need a guide to get them to their financial destinations while managing the detours and potholes along the way.
We are that trusted GPS for our clients, helping to point our clients in the direction to meet their goals, while adding the security of having a guide working with them by their side. We will be with you through all stages of your personal journey.

He joined the Costantino Group in 2009 with his father, Fred Sr., to take a team approach to provide personalized financial advice for individuals and families.
Mike is an Endwell native but attended the School of Management at Syracuse University where he went on to obtain his bachelor’s degree.

He tries to help the community through his membership in Rotary. Another organization he has been working closely with since 2012, is the Magic Paintbrush Project, which is not for profit which provides unique programs for individuals of all ages with developmental disabilities. Mike also enjoys all types of sports including golf, tennis, basketball and now spends a lot of time doing crossfit. He recently completed his first half marathon and a Spartan Race. If not participating in sports, Mike can be found watching sports. Most of all, he enjoys going up to see his Syracuse Orangemen play basketball, but also spends a lot of time supporting the local teams such as the Rumble Ponies and Senators. Besides sports, Mike likes to do a good amount of traveling. One of his current endeavors is to visit every Major League Baseball stadium.
