Colleen O’Brien is an “empty nester” mother of four. She is a people pleaser and really does not like the word “no”. She has a passion in a lovingly obsessed way for her family (although they may use the word strangely obsessed). She is true to her word, loves life, enjoys good company and a good belly laugh. She believes in the phrase “ treat people as you would want to be treated” and lives by that.
What made you want to join Lamacchia Realty?
“I came to know Lamacchia by listening to my niece Shauna rave about how great her company was. She was so excited all the time when she spoke about it. My niece had many careers before she found her passion and it was clear to everyone that it was Lamacchia. She knew always had an interest in interior design and encouraged me to look into taking a real estate course. I was hesitant because I was never a “student” or a “test taker” but as a new empty nester, I was looking for my new passion in life. I took the course and I knew when I sat in the interview with Jackie and Mell, I knew that this was the company for me. The atmosphere, the training, and the opportunities they offer to the agents are nothing any other brokers do. Anthony Lamacchia is present in his company and that was also very important to me. As a former business owner, I know how important it is to be present in every aspect of your business.
