Hamden - 203-288-1821 ext. 454

How long have you lived in CT?

I moved to Connecticut 30 years ago with my wife Beth when we relocated to advance our careers. We built our new home in the northwest woods of Hamden. In the 30 years since, we raised two boys and they have gone on to own a home of their own.

What part of CT do you live in and why?

We chose to live in Hamden for a variety of reasons, initially due to its central location which made it ideal for commuting while providing access to the fantastic CT shoreline. Over time, we learned that Hamden and its surrounding towns provide us with a very vibrant lifestyle that includes activities like free Concerts-in-the-Park, Farmer’s Markets, “Pick Your Own” at local family owned farms, Food Truck Festivals, Family Movie Nights, and very successful and competitive education and sports programs for the children. Having grown up in the “concrete jungle” of NYC, I have a personal appreciation for the wide variety of State Forests and Parks that are within a short 30 minute drive from home.

What’s your favorite local spot?

Sleeping Giant State Park with its extensive hiking trails, camping and picnicking facilities is a particular favorite as it is where my son, a fourth generation Eagle Scout completed his Eagle Project. Hammonasset Beach State Park, Mystic Seaport and the Peabody Museum of Natural History are also on my list. My wife and I occasionally enjoy excellent local theater productions at the Shubert, Long Wharf and Bushnell Theaters.

What’s your favorite time of year in CT?

While I would never claim to be a ‘winter’ person, every season in Connecticut has its appeal. My preference would be for the Spring through Fall seasons simply because those are what I have always associated with my childhood and “getting outdoors” weather.

What’s your favorite child memory?

When I was a child, my family had a tradition of taking unplanned and spontaneous road trips. My father would come home on a Friday night and sometime during dinner at our favorite local restaurant someone would say ‘wouldn’t it be nice to be in…’ and off we would go. We left from the restaurant and headed out to who-knows-where and ended up in places like the Catskills, the Adirondack Mountains, Boston, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, Montauk Point, etc. We never packed a bag or had a reservation -- we would just wing it. Sometimes we ended up in a motel and sometimes we went camping. We always had to stop for provisions like toothbrushes and underwear but we had so much fun! These were really adventurous times for me.

How long have you been part of the Calcagni team?

I have had the pleasure of working for Calcagni Real Estate for almost 3 years. My wife Beth has been a Calcagni Real Estate agent for more than 12 years and I am proud to be working by her side helping people just like you, find, build, buy and sell their homes here in Connecticut.
