Lamacchia Acquires First Team Realty and Enters Chelmsford Market
This week Lamacchia Realty completed its acquisition of First Team Realty. With a strong presence in Chelmsford for just under 15 years, First Team has built its business on relationships and reputation. The First Team office at 6 North Road, located in a beautiful building in the center of town directly across from the common, is now a Lamacchia Realty location.
“We have been considering moving into Chelmsford for over a year and I am absolutely thrilled to be doing it along with the Realtors at First Team Realty. I can’t think of a better way for us to make an entrance into such a wonderful community. The best part about this acquisition is it’s a great cultural match between our agents and staff and I am excited to see the First Team agents collaborate and meld into working with our Lamacchia Realty agents to form a powerful group.” – Anthony Lamacchia Broker/Owner
Top agents from First Team Realty are excited to be joining Lamacchia Realty, including Maryellen Russo, Paul Dubuque, Debbie Smith, and several other Realtors. Broker/owner Michael Dubuque will stay on to assist with the acclimation of the team and work hand in hand with the Leadership team at Lamacchia to help lead the transition period.
“This is a move that is truly beneficial to all parties involved. I have been trying to find the right ‘next chapter’ for First Team Realty for a couple of years. First and foremost, I was looking for a buyer that would be the best fit for my great team. Ultimately, a couple of key people, including my father, Paul, have been running the office for me for a period of time. This has allowed me to allocate my time, energy and focus on my family and my role as the Chief Member Experience Officer at Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union.
The merger into Lamacchia Realty provides the First Team agents with access to top notch training, cutting edge technology, and marketing and sales support we were not able to offer as a small real estate office or find anywhere else. Their culture of supporting each other and doing the right thing for their buyers and sellers is what I have been searching for. While I will stay involved through the transition, I can ultimately exit the company knowing that the First Team Realty agents are in a better spot to grow their businesses. I look forward to witnessing Anthony and Lamacchia Realty make a huge impact in Chelmsford and in the Greater Lowell area.” – Mike Dubuque
Additional local agents will be joining Lamacchia’s Chelmsford office in the coming weeks and months due to all the products, tools, services, technology, marketing power and the top-level training that Lamacchia offers to its agents. This includes the company’s massively upgraded custom CRM system, LamacchiaForce. The average rate of growth that agents experience in the first twelve months of joining the company compared to the prior twelve months at their prior company is 318%.
“I am so excited for this move! We have been considering a move to Chelmsford for some time now and doing it with First Team Realty is perfect. Their culture aligns perfectly with ours so it’s a natural fit. I’m really looking forward to seeing how well everyone is going to work together and support each other. We are thrilled to be in the Chelmsford community and I’m excited to see what the future holds.” – Jackie Louh, Vice President of Growth and Development
A heavy marketing campaign has been initiated to dramatically boost the Company’s market reach in Chelmsford and surrounding areas to help add more top-rated agents to the Chelmsford office. This will kick off in March and includes additional billboards, postcards, newspaper ads, and much more.
In 2019 Lamacchia Realty announced the grand opening of its sixth location in Leominster with local top agents. That office has tripled in size since its opening and is continuing to grow. The same is expected to happen in Chelmsford. In 2019 they also moved their Woburn office to their new permanent location at the Four Corners. The Company was named #1 Independent Brokerage in 2019, as well as in 2018, in four out of six locations.
