Real Estate Brokerage, Permitting, Government Relations
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Seaport Landing 152 Lynnway Suite 3A (Lynn) is the "new home" for Lynnway Associates Group, a real estate brokerage, consulting, and government relations firm. More than 60 friends, colleagues, and business associates helped Lynn native Lou Markakis cut the ribbon at their new Lynnway office. During his short speech, Lou thanked Lynn City Council President Jay Walsh, Lynn Ward 6 Councilor Fred Hogan, Lynn Ward 2 Councilor Rick Starbard, Taunton City Councilor and former Lynner John McCaul, Revere City Councilors Tony Zambuto, and Gerry Visconti, a current Revere mayoral candidate, and Alex Rhalimi-Revere City Council candidate. Also in attendance were Lynn City Council candidates Roger Garcia, owner of April's restaurant who catered the event, and Don Castle, candidate for Lynn City Council.
Blessed by 80+ degree temperatures, the afternoon opening was the culmination of a real estate career that began in 1976 in California, then Massachusetts in 1980. After spending the last five years working with C21NorthEast as Lynnway Associates Group from a Revere office next to Revere City Hall,
Lou and his partners, Bernardo Sepulveda (Sr VP/Partner) of Revere, and Rosa DeCastro (VP/Partner) from Saugus, decided to "make the move." After great success and a 5-year stint affiliated with Century 21NE, the team has leased a beautiful penthouse suite
overlooking the marina at Seaport Landing. Markakis stated,"After knowing, working with, or servicing 55 of the 62 actual Lynnway stakeholders for the last 35 years, it made sense to return home to the Lynnway. We had a great run and were successfully working with a first-class organization at C21NE, but it was the right time to return to my roots.
We don't want to be the biggest, we just want to be "the best" at what we do!
The company's focus is real estate, residential and commercial sales, with a track record of permitting difficult real estate projects through the company's experience in government relations. Also stopping in to say hello and sign books for the crowd was Celebrity Chef Johnny Ciao, who met Lou in 2000 at a Boston Chef's event. (Www.JohnnyCiao.com)
Lou thanked everyone in attendance and looks forward to servicing the North
Shore in areas of real estate, government relations, and permitting. An Emerson College graduate and a seasoned political operative, Lou graduated from Lynn English High.
