Meghan Martin

Meghan Martin joined Lamacchia Realty in late 2017 and made a massive impression on everyone in the company, including agents, staff, and the leadership team.  During her brief time at the company, everyone noticed Meghan’s incredibly positive attitude as she treated everyone with respect, was gracious, thankful, and giving.

Meghan was initially diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and fought it with dedication and hope, raising awareness and funds during her health journey by contributing her time and energy to the Pan-Mass Challenge and to the Dana Farber Institute.  Her attitude never faltered during her initial diagnosis, nor when the cancer returned in 2014.  Meghan was always present, hopeful, dedicated, and thankful for all the goodness in her life, never letting this sickness get the best of her.

In her first year of joining the company, Meghan Martin accomplished her goal of being inducted into the President’s Club, for which she and her husband traveled to Aruba with the fellow President’s Club inductees and members of the management team – a time for which everyone on that trip is grateful for. While there, Anthony talked with Meghan and Genevieve Botelho about how they set their minds to making President’s Club and how Anthony was so proud of them.  One thing to note, is Meghan did not want to talk about her cancer in the video, so they did not. While it would have made an impression, that is not what Meghan was about. She did not want any excuses or special treatment.  Meghan’s passing in August of 2019 was incredibly sad for everyone in the company, but everyone also knew that she’d rather her life be celebrated with joy.
