I have lived in CT. all my life, born and raised in New Haven. My wife and I now live in Hamden, CT. with our Bulldog.
My favorite local spots include East Rock and West Rock Park overlooks, Branford Shoreline, Playwright Irish Pub in Hamden, and Caseus and Modern Apizza in New Haven.
My wife and I love taking road trips; always excited to explore new areas of New England on a weekend. I enjoy building things, hiking, soccer, pub trivia, libraries, book groups, and I love animals.
My father was a Broker and property manager when I was growing up. His success in real estate was due to his honesty, integrity, an ability to cultivate great long-term client relationships, and his incredible carpentry skills. I wanted to be like him. And make money. That is what led me to becoming a residential contractor, and more recently, a Realtor.
I was a residential remodeling contractor and rental property manager for many years.
I wanted to join a Brokerage that had a reputation of professionalism, honesty, integrity, and frankly, high sales numbers. I loathed the idea of being associated with the “used-car salesman” feeling that I got from some of the other Real Estate companies I interviewed with. When I walked in to Calcagni, it was a breath of relief; I was presented with a great team of Realtors and staff, led by a seasoned professional Manager, in a modern, attractive office. I wanted to be part of that team.
