Anthony is the Broker/Owner-CEO of Lamacchia Realty and is from and currently resides in Watertown, Massachusetts. He started as a real estate agent in 2004 after spending his childhood and early adult life working at his father’s Landscape Construction Company. It was there that he first learned about business development and management and what it takes to build, design, and showcase homes. He was responsible for all of the large-scale landscape construction, masonry and asphalt paving projects. Anthony obtained a Massachusetts builders license in 2003 and has kept it up ever since to remain current and informed on the latest updates in residential building codes.
After buying his first property at age 21 and several more properties by age 23, he readily realized the real estate industry was where he wanted to spend his life. In 2004, he made the jump into real estate sales with the very agent who helped him buy and sell a few of those properties: John McGeough. Anthony hit the ground running and had immediate success selling numerous properties. In 2005, he and John established McGeough Lamacchia Realty, Inc. with the help of their first employee, Sarah Chaisson, who is now the Vice President of the company. Since then, the company has experienced significant growth.
In September of 2014, Anthony became the sole owner of Lamacchia Realty as John decided to get back into commercial and residential development projects. Currently, Anthony spends his time running the company, training agents, and even occasionally advises buyer and seller clients. He is completely obsessed and passionate about providing all the agents and employees in the company with top notch technology and all the best possible tools available to leverage their time and excel in their careers.
In 2014, the company invested heavily in the Salesforce CRM platform which is the widely regarded as the top CRM in the world. Anthony’s idea was to build a customized system with cutting-edge mobile capabilities that agents could use to their advantage and so management could run the company from both the office as well as remotely. Anthony continues to work hard with his management team to consistently find ways to improve this system with the goal of providing every agent with a way to run, track and steadily grow their businesses. Agent success is always at the forefront of Lamacchia Realty’s technological development.
Anthony is involved and very passionate about advocating for home ownership, real estate development, tax policies related to Real Estate and fellow Realtors. He has traveled to Washington, DC to meet with members of Congress, Senators, and various regulatory agencies to defend homeownership, distressed homeowners and mortgage lending. In 2008, when the market fell apart and many distressed homeowners needed short sales; Anthony established relationships with executives at several of the nation’s largest banks and Government Sponsored Enterprises. He made it a priority to seek out the right people all over the country to ensure that clients of Lamacchia Realty were properly taken care of.
Anthony serves on many committees and groups within the Realtor Organization. He is part of the Government Affairs Committee with the Massachusetts Association of Realtors® which he’s served on since 2012 and served the Greater Boston Association of Realtors Government Affairs Committee in 2016. He has been serving on the Massachusetts Association of Realtors Board of Directors since 2013, the National Association of Realtors® Lending and Finance Committee since 2015 and joined the Northeast Association of Realtors Education Committee in 2016. In addition, Anthony is a President’s Circle member of the Realtors® Political Action Committee, which gives financial support to members of Congress who support real estate causes. Anthony currently serves on the Zillow Advisory Board.
Anthony is often featured on various Boston TV News stations as a Real Estate Expert. He has also been interviewed by other national media outlets including the Wall Street Journal. Anthony is a Boston Globe Correspondent who writes a column on a monthly basis. Anthony was the number one Realtor by sales in Massachusetts for several years and was ranked in the top 100 in the country since 2011 prior to switching out of a Team model and into a more traditional brokerage in 2015.
Lamacchia Realty has been recognized not only as one of the fastest growing companies in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal but has also made the Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America every year since 2012.
Outside of Work, I Enjoy:
“Being with my wife and children and doing all kinds of things like skiing, reading, exercising, and watching football.
My Favorite Charity:
Favorite Part of My Job:
“Since I was a young child, I always dreamed of building a company from the ground up. It is one of the most difficult things anyone can do and no one knows how truly tough it can be until they try it themselves. I enjoy all aspects of building our company including the challenges that come along with doing that. Most companies fail in the first year and even more fail within a few years after. Those statistics have always motivated me to do better and to grow the company in an aggressive but careful manner. Most of all, I enjoy the satisfaction of working with our great staff and agents to help home buyers and sellers!”
