DONNA - DIRECTOR OF COACHING
Donna received her real estate license in 1983 and went on to start her career at Century 21. 15 years later, she decided it was time for a change and moved to a Real Estate Investment Trust as a Portfolio Manager, managing properties throughout the United States with a combined property value of more than a billion dollars. In 2001, she was recruited to RE/MAX and in 2007 became an owner of the firm. Amongst her many talents, Donna found a passion in coaching real estate agents, and went on to become a Certified Professional Business Coach. After coaching for nearly 15 years, we were lucky enough to add her as a valuable asset to the JJE team!
ANTHONY - MARKETING DIRECTOR
Coming from a consumer packaged goods and spirits industry (yes, he drank on the job but called it research), Anthony is our innovative Marketing Director. He worked on brands such as Bacardi, Bombay Sapphire, Dewar’s, Nestle Waters, Nestea, Campbell’s Soup and many others as an account manager. His self taught Photoshop skills come in handy here and there but mostly knows how to think like most don’t.
Anthony is a graduate of Southern CT State University where he met his lovely wife and his golf buddies. Not only does he golf but he is the “King of Hobbies” like Crossfit, Softball, Snowboarding, Poker, Running (mostly after his crazy and wild Vizsla Brooklyn), Disc Golf, you name it, he’s probably tried it. Anthony is passionate about everything he does and offers our clients an unstoppable work ethic that makes things happen and look good.

She also has bragging rights to being one of the company’s first interns. We wouldn’t label her as a foodie, but she enjoys brunch and a great pizza just as much as your average Joe. Outside of the office, Alicia spends her time working on her fitness and planning her next outdoor adventure.
