Meet Matthew Morizio

Matthew Morizio recently joined #TeamMonticello and I recently sat down with him to learn more about him.

If you could live anywhere in the world – where would it be and why?
I am a true New Yorker at heart! Though I have lived in 5 different states including Hawaii, I keep coming back to New York. Both the culture and the people here are truly home to me. 

Would you rather sit on a beach or hike a mountain?
That’s a tough question. I like both really. They are equally therapeutic to me. Waves crashing. Trees rustling. 

What is your favorite meal to cook?
Lasagna! It’s something ALL of my family loves. Besides, it’s my favorite meal to eat.

If you could be a superhero – who would you be?
If Jesus Christ was a superhero it would be him. He’d be that very unassuming character that had the power of all superheroes. Fully human and yet forever divine.

What is your favorite season?
Actually, I like all of the seasons we have here in New York, yet summer offers the opportunity to ride my motorcycle.

Up Close with Sara Abramo

Sara Abramo is one of the newest realtors that joined Monticello Real Estate. We recently sat down with Sara to get to know her.

What is your favorite meal to cook?

I don’t know if I have a favorite recipe to cook. Instead, I like to be able to take what’s in the refrigerator and figure something out. Taking all the ingredients and creating something is a lot of fun and it allows me to show my creative side. Somehow it all works when I am done.

If you could have a superpower – what would it be?

I would love to fly. That way I could get to places faster and sell more real estate!

What is your guilty pleasure TV show?

I loved Game of Thrones…that is until the ending. I was not happy with how it ended.

What is the best way to spend a Sunday morning?

I love exploring different hiking trails in the Hudson Valley…and I also love to go to brunch.

What is one of your hobbies?

I play poker. I love it because it’s a normally male-dominated table game. When I win, men often say, “Ladies Luck!” Little did they know that I just bluffed them!

Up Close with Michael Pandolfo

Mike Pandolfo recently joined Monticello Real Estate. We are happy to have him on board and we sat down to get to know him a bit better!

What is your favorite dish to cook and why?
I don’t have one favorite. I like grilling in the summer and authentic Italian dishes in the fall and winter months.  I always try new dishes that the family will enjoy.

What is your “happy place?”
My happy place is any time spent in the outdoors- solitude.  I spend many weekends up in the Adirondacks during the summer months.

What superhero would you like to be?
Superhero?  I thought that’s the definition of parent. LOL

What is your most treasured possession and why?
I’m not big of possession- they are fleeting.
Where would you live if you could be off the grid?
I would like to live in Montana on a big spread with minimal human interaction.
