Anthony is the Broker/Owner-CEO of Lamacchia Realty and is from and currently resides in Watertown, Massachusetts with his wife Nicole Lamacchia and their four children. He obtained his real estate license 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.

Agent success is always at the forefront of Lamacchia Realty’s technological development.

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!”
