What made you want to join Lamacchia Realty?
“I have been watching Anthony’s success and the success of a lot of Realtor friends and decided I needed to learn more. I spoke with Judy Patterson and she told me everything she loves about Lamacchia Realty and referred me to John Millen. After hearing about the pre-listing services, the technical services, the admin support, and the marketing I was sold. I already 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 35+ years.

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.”

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 an 11 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.
