About Me About Me

I was born and raised in Springfield, MA the oldest of 4 kids. Joining the U.S. Navy after high school I received orders to a class “A” school at the Naval Communication Training Center in Pensacola, Florida. There I developed communications and computer skills, which later came in very useful in sales and contract negotiations. After 4 years of service, both in Europe and at the National Security Agency, (NSA) Fort Meade, Maryland, I leveraged the GI Bill to further my education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I earned a BA in Language while minoring in Business/Marketing.

My business career began in the pharmaceutical industry with Beecham Labs, which eventual transformed into GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. I spent over 30 years at GSK in sales and contract negotiations with hospital systems and managed care organizations. I left pharmaceuticals as Senior Corporate Account Executive with many high achievements and honors in President’s Clubs and Winner’s Circle Awards, which were highlighted by trips to Hawaii, Europe and various U.S. Resorts. The skills and abilities I learned in my sales and negotiating experience have been instrumental in my last few years as a REALTOR® negotiating on behalf of our clients.

While at UMass I met my wonderful bride of over 40 years, Judy. Together we raised our family of 3 wonderful children Michelle, Joe and Sue in Old Saybrook. We have lived in this beautiful community for more than 32 years and our children are all successful graduates of the Old Saybrook School System. My pastime is spent enjoying time with my family including my wife, children and 5 (yes five) grandsons ages 3 to 11.

We enjoy traveling together, cooking (particularly with grill and Smoker) as well as golf, gardening and attending the Karate and sports events that my grandsons compete in. With memberships in the Old Saybrook Chamber of Commerce and the ROTARY Club we are current about what is happening in the community. We look forward to meeting and helping new friends and old alike.

Pete and Melissa did a wonderful job guiding Jim and I through the sale of our Killingworth home. We had been in the home for over 38 years and what a process it was. Thank you for a quick, painless sale. James & Stella Smith
It was great to work with WSPIR and Melissa and Pete. I find there instincts with regards to the real estate market, current trends, and valuation to be far superior than other agents I've dealt with. They are in a completely different class and go above and beyond to support there clients. I appreciated the attention to detail and felt confident with them as my advocate throughout the buying and selling process. I'm convinced that Melissa & Pete at WSPIR were able to get me top dollar for my recent sale. B&R Solutions, LLC
Melissa and Pete are an amazing team. They're professional, kind, savvy and great at what they do. They make properties shine and do a stellar job highlighting all the assets of the communities they work in, They know their market and are connected to anyone you might need to hire in the process of a real estate transaction -- contractors, cleaners, painters. They're worked with my family on the selling and buying end of transactions and are equally skilled at both. They work incredibly hard. But beyond their skills and diligence, they're very nice people who are fun to be around. I can't recommend them highly enough. George Gustin
