What do you like to do outside of work?

“I love anything to do with the water; the ocean, lakes, ponds, etc.  I live on a gorgeous lake, where I love to fish, boat, waterski, wakeboard, jet-ski… you name it.  If it involves water, count me in.”

What is your favorite charity?

“My brother was diagnosed with ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, in 2013. He passed away in early 2014.  The disease took his life extremely quick, as it does the majority of people who are diagnosed with it.  My desire to help make a difference in treating this terrible disease came about after my brother was diagnosed.  There are no known cures for this disease, and there are so many restrictions on drug-testing set forth by the FDA, that donating to organizations that will contribute to making progress in treating this disease is imperative.”

What is your favorite part of your job?

“My favorite thing about my job is working with people from so many different backgrounds on a daily basis. I am a people person, and I consider myself lucky to be in this profession.  The majority of the time it doesn’t even feel like work, I’m just helping people’s dreams fall into place!”

Do you have any pets?

“I have a rottweiler.  His name is Luca, short for “Luca Brasi The Dogfather.”  The irony in the name is that as intimidating as he may look, he is actually the most gentle dog you could ever meet. He loves being around people, and people love to be around him, kind of like me!”

What is your favorite sports teams?

“My favorite sports team would most definitely be the New England Patriots.  Although I am a huge fan of all our incredible New England sports teams (as most of us from N.E. are), football is my favorite sport to watch, attend, and follow throughout the season.”

My elderly father moved to a new home in a different state to be closer to family after his wife's passing. He was stressed out, packing and moving was exhausting and he was seriously considering selling his former home as-is, off-market for pennies on the dollar because he didn't want to deal with what he thought would be a time-consuming labor-intensive selling and closing process. He finally agreed to at least talk to a couple of realtors. AJ Bruce listened to my Dad's thoughts and concerns without making him feel pressured into listing. AJ's responses to questions were straight to the point and Dad slowly began to trust him. AJ drove hundreds of miles to check out the property and determine an appropriate list price. His positive, assuring attitude and upbeat manner brought new energy to my Dad and Dad agreed to give a short-term listing a shot. AJ and his team at Lamacchia did all the work to get the property photographed and listed, including working patiently with Dad as he navigated the world of electronic document signing. They enabled countless showings over the 4th of July week. In the end, Dad received multiple offers that he feels were at least three times what he would have received if he had sold his property off-market and there was little difference in closing timelines. Best of all, the process was effortless. Thank-you AJ and the whole team at Lamacchia for giving Dad peace of mind!

A.J was an absolute dream come true! My husband and I truly didn't even know where to begin, we just knew we wanted to buy a home! AJ set up showings right away for any address we were interested in. He answered our calls, texts and emails right away (day or night) He explained everything in a way we could understand. Even after we purchased our dream home, AJ was still there to help answer questions an offer recommendations! I would HIGHLY recommend AJ to anyone who needs a realtor.

My friend recommended AJ as a realtor and I couldn’t have been more grateful! He was extremely knowledgeable in the town I was looking in which was so helpful since I am still getting to know Massachusetts and the housing market. I found my dream home within a month of working with him and he was so fast with getting an offer together. I’m a first time home buyer that’s new to this whole process and he basically held my hand the whole way. He answered all my questions before I even asked or thought of them. His insight and great personality made my first home buying experience an amazing one! I couldn’t have done this without him!
