Congratulations to Affiliate of the Quarter Connie Minervino of Atlantic Coast Title Company

Connie lives in Saco with her husband, Ed Pennell, and their 16 year old Pomeranian, Benny. Although truly enjoying being “empty nesters,” Connie misses her children: Sam, who lives and works in Denver, Carli, who lives and works in Ft. Myers, and Stephanie, who lives and works in Boston.

When she’s not at the closing table, Connie enjoys spending time at camp and boating on Big Sebago Lake, traveling with her husband, spending time with her extended family and being an avid Boston sports fan.

She is a Rotarian, serving as past Board member, Sargent at Arms and member of the Charitable Giving Committee. Connie enjoys volunteering and raising money for all causes, but the closest to her heart is ALS Association of Northern New England. With her Brother-in-Law, Joe Pennell, as the Captain of “Tonie’s Team,” the immediate family has been raising funds since 2008. Last year, they raised $17,000 and year to date over $115,000. Their fund raising effort kicks off each year with a pub crawl on Memorial Day weekend in Old Orchard Beach that has grown to host over 400 people. Their effort continues throughout the year with various events including the ALS walk around Baxter Boulevard every September.

Connie has worked for Atlantic Coast Title Company for 22 years and has been in the title industry for a total of 32 years. In addition to her membership at the GPBR, she is a member of the Women’s Council of REALTORS® and the Maine Association of Mortgage Professionals.

Connie considers her keys to success simple…treat everyone with respect and not accepting the words, “this can’t be done.”

As advice to other affiliates: joining a committee and being present at the events is the best way to get the most out of your membership.
