Staff Star – Kelly Dolan
Lamacchia Realty has some of the best real estate agents in the state of Massachusetts. They couldn’t be the best if they didn’t have strong support from our inside staff which is why we started the Staff Stars series. Our Staff Star interviews will highlight a new staff member that goes above and beyond for the company, the agents, and for our valued clients. This time around the award goes to Kelly Dolan.
“Despite a relatively short time in her new role, Kelly has done an amazing job not only assisting me but also any of our agents who have approached her for help. Her experiences while being at several other brokerages before joining us, really allow her to understand how our agents are feeling especially when they have recently joined the company and/or are new to the business. Among the many things she has taken over for me, Kelly was completely responsible for the entire planning and execution of our first ever Dial-A-Thon which was a huge success. Kelly is a crucial part of the Sales Department’s plans for the future and every agent within our company is lucky to work with her.”- Dave Karoly, Vice President of Sales
I started in July 2018 as an agent and joined the staff side in July 2019.
Describe your Role within the company:
I’m Dave Karoly’s Executive Assistant. I assist with lead generation and coordination, answering lead-related agent questions, and any other tasks that need to be done to keep the Sales Team operating smoothly.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Anything active, especially yoga and dance.
What is your favorite project you have been a part of while at Lamacchia Realty?
Definitely the Dial-a-thon. It was a blast!
What is the most important part of your job?
Allowing Dave to focus on the big picture, but I like to think that it’s also answering agent questions. I was a coach before getting into real estate and getting to be hands-on and helping agents through whatever they’re struggling with really fills my cup.
How would you describe the culture at Lamacchia Realty?
Unmatched. I’ve never seen so many positive, encouraging people in the same workspace in my whole life. Every person here is a solid contributor who cares about the people around them.
Before coming to Lamacchia, I worked at two brokerages in Florida. One was a big name, the other was 100% commission. There were things I liked about both, but I knew I was missing the structure and guidance I needed to succeed. The combination of advanced tech, training systems and staff support for agents at Lamacchia is very rare. After checking out the company and everything offered, joining was a no-brainer.
If someone outside of the company asked you if they should join Lamacchia Realty, what information or advice would you give them?
DO IT! Check out the Crush It page, come to a training, come see what this company can do for you and your business. If you feel like something is missing in your approach to the business or the support you have, I guarantee you’ll find it here.
