What made you want to join Lamacchia Realty?

“I have been watching Anthony’s Lamacchia’s success and the success of a lot of Realtor friends and decided I needed to learn more.  I spoke with a good friend, and she told me everything she loves about Lamacchia Realty and referred me to the Business Development Team.   After hearing about the pre-listing services, the technical services, the admin support, and the marketing I was sold.   I feel I am in a much better position to support my clients at a very high level.”

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

“I love to travel and try to plan a trip to a new place each year. I also enjoy entertaining, spending time with family, and am often the host for holiday dinners for 25+ guests.  I am an avid reader and try to do the New York Times crossword puzzle each day.  I am also involved in local politics serving as a Commission on the Shrewsbury Housing Authority and as a Town Meeting Member, both elected positions.”

Do you have a favorite charity?

“I am a Past President of the Rotary Club of Shrewsbury and a founding member of the Shrewsbury Rotary Foundation. I am a strong believer in the Rotary Motto “Service over Self” and work with my fellow Rotarians on local charitable endeavors. My Family are very strong supporters of the V Foundation. The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by legendary Coach Jim Valvano with one goal in mind: to achieve Victory of Cancer.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

I love meeting new people and in the Real Estate business, every day is different. It is impossible to get bored.”

Do you have any pets?

I have a 14 year Golden Retriever who I refer to as my best friend, Sam McSweeney.   Sam is getting a little older, so we don’t do too many walks, but we still try to hit the streets each day.”

What are your favorite sports, and sports teams?

“My father took me to my first Patriots game when I was 10 and I have been hooked ever since. I love the Patriots but will watch any football game, pro or college if the Pats aren’t on.  I also love my trips to Fenway and the Garden and will occasionally take a road trip to see a game in a new stadium or ballpark.”

Kathy was responsive, professional and enthusiastic throughout our work together. She made consistently good recommendations during my buying experience. The searching and buying experience is fraught with many headaches and challenges. Kathy guided me through all of those, with expertise, kindness, and patience, to find a home I love.
