Staff Star – Meghan Casagranda
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 the 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 Meghan Casagranda! Meghan is an administrative assistant out of the Worcester office who assists agents day in and day out with all parts of their transactions.
Meghan has been such a wonderful addition to the team and has been a tremendous asset in growing our Worcester office. Meghan’s attention to detail, knowledge of Real Estate, and a fantastic attitude make her the latest staff star and someone I enjoy working and depend on so much! – Angela Walker, Director of Operations
I’m thrilled to have Meghan as our Staff Star! She has been a tremendous asset to the company, especially for the agents in our Worcester office. She is always willing to do whatever it takes to help the agents and she does it all with such a great attitude. She goes above and beyond and we appreciate her hard work and dedication! – Jackie Louh, Director of Growth & Development
When did you start at Lamacchia Realty?
I started with Lamacchia almost 2 years ago. February 1, 2016 was my first day.
Describe your Role within the company:
I am an Administrative Assistant at the Worcester office. I’m here to answer agent questions & make them feel welcome. I also assist quite a few of the Worcester agents working closely with them throughout their transactions from the time their clients sign the paperwork to the time they close.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I like to enjoy a little retail therapy with my sister, a good crafty project, trying a new Pinterest idea or escaping for a weekend away to the beach with my boyfriend. You’ll also find me at the softball field in the spring & fall watching my daughter play softball.
What is your favorite project you have been a part of while at Lamacchia Realty?
I don’t have 1 particular project that has been my favorite, but I enjoy getting listings ready to go on the market. Editing the pictures of some beautiful homes & writing the descriptions to highlight the property. I also had the opportunity to help with a Blog on the importance of filling out the listing sheets completely and accurately – it’s always fun when you get to try something new!
What is the most important part of your job?
There are many important parts of my job but if I had to narrow it down to the most important, I would say it would be to help support the agents during the transaction. Working with the sellers, buyers, lenders, attorneys, and co-broking agents to ensure a smooth transaction helps the agents focus on their clients’ needs. I also love being able the help the newer agents understand the tools and systems Lamacchia has for them because once they get the hang of it, it makes their lives so much easier! They always come back with a genuine “thank you!”
How would you describe the culture at Lamacchia Realty?
Ah-Mazing! I know it sounds cliché but it’s one big family, from Anthony & Nicole to the management team to staff and to the agents. I truly enjoy coming to the office where we like to have fun & share a few laughs. It is such a great group of people!
What other places have you worked and what about Lamacchia Realty is different?
I worked at another real estate company for 7 years prior to Lamacchia Realty. At Lamacchia Realty the environment is welcoming & engaging. A place where everyone helps one another, shares ideas and learns from each other. I’ve been completely blown away by the training and support that the agents & staff receive. Lamacchia Realty trains their agents to grow and change as the industry changes. Some months the focus is on listings, or buyers, or price adjustments., etc. The management team teaches agents what to do with leads and how to successfully turn them into a client. The training for newer agents is like nothing I’ve seen and really sets them up for success. The systems, the support, the tools are top notch and are always improving to improve the lives of the agents & staff!
If someone outside of the company asked you if they should join Lamacchia Realty, what information or advice would you give them?
Be prepared to learn, to grow & to increase your business! You don’t know what you are missing out on! The grass IS greener on this side – your business, your family, your clients will thank you! There is a reason why thousands of agents across the country tune into Anthony’s trainings. Come see for yourself, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
