Agent Snapshot: Alyssa Spear, Realtor, McGeough Lamacchia Realty, Greater Boston Area


Alyssa Spear is a Realtor with McGeough Lamacchia Realty in the Greater Boston Area.

What was your first job in the realty industry? Realtor with McGeough Lamacchia Realty.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? Walking my dog gives me time to breathe and wind down when in the midst of a stressful sale or waiting to hear back on that offer. I also end up cleaning to keep my mind occupied – two things that I would need to do anyway!

Where did you grow up? I grew up in a small town on the border of Rhode Island, but moved to the Boston area after college. Now I live in Waltham, and I’m always keeping tabs on what new restaurants and stores are moving here. It’s such an accessible city without the parking drama, and it’s a quick commuter rail ride to Boston.

Growing up, what did you want to be? My dream job varied quite a bit – it’s gone from event manager to psychologist and now Realtor. I’d like to think I wear many hats, which can’t hurt in this line of work.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? I think Ellen Degeneres would be a hilarious person to have lunch with. Her remake of Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln Commercial had me in tears.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? Favorite place would have to be Cat Rock in Weston. It’s a great dog park where the dogs have their own lake where they can swim and they can run around off leash. We’ve met some great people and pups there.

What do you love most about the industry? It’s ever-changing and it doesn’t get stale. Your office could be your car one day and your bedroom or a coffee shop the next. I like that we’re not bound to a cubicle, and we have the opportunity to meet new people on a daily basis.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I believe that if you’re a hard worker and you do the right thing, people will pay it forward. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible buyers and friends who have continued to recommend me to others. This job is all about being a strong communicator and an even better listener. Utilizing the latest technology is something I make sure I continue to do as well, and it makes the process a little more seamless.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Keeping an even attitude, whether things are good or bad. You’re juggling someone’s potential home, and the market’s been moving very quickly, so there’s a lot of pressure that can get to you if you let it.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? I can’t pinpoint any one area, but I’d say I’ve met many new clients at parties or out in Boston. Once you say that you’re a Realtor, everyone ends up having questions about the market.

What has been your greatest accomplishment? My greatest accomplishment has been deciding to work at McGeough Lamacchia Realty. When you get your license, agencies tend to give the sense that you have to fend for yourself, and whether you sink or swim makes no odds to them. Anthony Lamacchia, our broker, is the exact opposite, and he does everything he can to make sure you’re the best Realtor you can possibly be. The training they offer is unmatched, and I know that when I have questions, a number of different people are available to give answers. It’s a fantastic atmosphere.

What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? The last great movie was “Gone Girl.” I read the book as well and knew the movie would be a thriller. The last book I read was “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” which I highly recommend. It teaches you that the most important way to build relationships is to not only listen, but to comprehend and find commonalities. I plan to read it a few more times so it really sticks.

What is your favorite restaurant? Favorite Restaurant is the Ocean House in Dennis Port Cape Cod. The food is phenomenal, and it has a great little tiki bar overlooking the ocean. Even if you’re not anywhere near the Cape, it’s worth the drive; just beautiful.

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Boston? In Boston, my favorite building is the Ray and Maria Stata Center at MIT. It looks like a futuristic, yet surreal, work of art.

What kind of car do you drive? For my next car, I plan to get a Jeep to survive these roads during Boston winters. I’d much rather invest in a second home, though, than a vehicle – it’s all about priorities!

Smartphone or paper? I rely on my iPhone for just about everything, and we’ve come a long way technologically. Why use paper when I can pull up any document electronically with the click of a button?

What is your favorite city after Boston? I love Portland, Maine. It’s an artsy city with great places to eat and drink, and it has beautiful views of the water, as well.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry? Find an agency that’s willing to train you.

What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app? McGeough Lamacchia Realty Home Search App – it tells you all the homes that are available based on your location, and I check it out at least three times a day depending where I am. I love it!

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? I like to know what’s going on in Waltham, so I follow @DiscoverWaltham and @WalthamNewsTrib to keep up with the latest stores or restaurants coming to the area. @CurbedBoston is also always full of tweets on up and coming buildings and business as well.
