Staff Star – Amy Annunciata
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. Our first was Jacqueline Morse then it was our marketing coordinator, Cole Gargaro and this time around the award goes to Amy Annunciata!

I started at Lamacchia Realty almost 2 years ago exactly in April 2016!
Describe your role within the company?
Besides being the face of the Westford office, I’m also a receptionist answering calls and emails as well as an administrative assistant which means I provide support to agents throughout their real estate transactions from start to finish. My responsibilities include assisting and supporting agents from anywhere between helping them with something in the office to transaction coordinating to checking for necessary paperwork and many things in between. I also speak with people looking to buy or sell a home and help get them connected with the appropriate agent.
In my free time I love to hang out with my dog Petey, whether it’s cuddling on the couch, or taking him for a walk, he is usually always by my side at home. When the weather is warmer I love to travel when I can and hang out by my pool with friends and family. I have a trip coming up soon to Iceland and I am very excited to see the beautiful sights and views it has to offer!
What is your favorite project you have been a part of while at Lamacchia Realty?
I would have to say going to the Zip Trips in the summer. They are a blast! It’s fun hanging out, meeting new people, taking pictures for our social media and getting to see Anthony speak with Michele Lazcano live in person.
What is the most important part of your job?
I would say the most important part of my job is being readily available to agents to provide them the support they need to succeed in their career.
How would you describe the culture at Lamacchia Realty?
There is nothing like it! All the staff are extremely helpful, supportive and friendly! Everyone is dedicated and has a hard work ethic! Anthony creates a positive work environment with his upbeat, motivational personality. I have never felt as close to my coworkers as I do here, everyone helps each other out.
Previously I worked in child care for about 6 years. As anyone knows, caring for children is no easy task. It took a toll on me and it was hard to feel truly appreciated or cared about as a person in that industry. At Lamacchia your managers want you to succeed and they give you the advice and tools necessary. The management team is great! They’re extremely accommodating, they always answer your questions, ask about your weekend, sympathize through rough times, and generally show they care about you and your growth. We are all a team and we help each other out if someone is sick, on vacation or just needs and extra hand that day. It’s not a gossip fest and there are no favorites, everyone is treated equally and fairly. Anthony is great to all of us, we have fun/ interactive company meetings, outings, dinners, and even vacations to those who win some of the competitive contests we do here. We are always being rewarded for our hard work and acknowledged, which is something A LOT of companies lack! It’s honestly a company like no other I have ever worked in and I am proud to say that I have been here and learned so much in the past two years!
If someone outside of the company asked you if they should join Lamacchia Realty, what information or advice would you give them?
Go for it! This company is improving and growing every single day. When I started here two years ago there were about 50 employees total with staff and agents and now there are over 120! If you’re thinking about joining, what are you waiting for?! This is by far the best and fastest growing company I have worked for and the training and support is like no other!
