REALTOR® STEPHEN MARTIN JOINS LUX REALTY NORTH SHORE

REALTOR® Stephen Martin joins LUX Realty North Shore Beverly, MA: Stephen Martin, a full-time REALTOR® on the North Shore has joined LUX Realty North Shore at their flagship office in downtown Beverly.

Steve’s extensive, 20-year background in real estate includes property development, mortgage financing, and sales. His passion is assisting individuals to grow their wealth through the purchase and sales of multi-family properties.

Steve's detailed “number crunching” and in-depth knowledge of the local rental markets provide his clients with financial snapshots that lead to sound and profitable decision making. Steve considers himself a natural people person and says one of his greatest strengths is “making connections and deals come together from my expansive network of Buyers and Sellers.” This, in turn, has placed Steve in the Top 1% of real estate agents for multifamily sales in all of Massachusetts from 2016-2019.

“I’m very proud to welcome Steve to the LUX family,” says Henry Pizzo, broker-owner. “He has an impressive acumen of multi-family properties and the uniqueness of their sales. I look forward to watching his continued success as he works hard to maintain his position in that Top 1% of agents for multi-family sales in 2021.”

March 31, 2020, The Daily News- Newburyport man buys thousands of masks for hospitals, first responders

DONATE TO THIS AMAZING CAUSE HERE

NEWBURYPORT – The first shipment of 2,000 protective masks arrived at the Hart Road home of Ward 6 city councilor and real estate agent Byron Lane about noon Monday and by later in the afternoon, they were already being given to hospitals and first responders.

Another 2,000 KN95 masks, the Chinese equivalent of the much-sought-after N95 masks, are expected to arrive at Lane’s home in the days to follow.

The masks’ arrival marked the end of a lengthy process that began more than a week ago and saw Lane work through a New Jersey-based company that he said employs a friend.

“It was a challenge” to get the masks delivered, Lane said.

Part of the problem was that the federal Food and Drug Administration has not approved the Chinese version of the masks for sale or distribution in the U.S. That has made hospitals across the country hesitant to accept donations out of concern they could be held legally liable, according to published reports.

Lane said most of the masks will be donated to nurses across the state along with ambulance providers, doctors and Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. Fifty masks will be heading to fire departments in Newburyport, Amesbury, Newbury, Salisbury, and West Newbury.

“Everything we can do to cover who needs them,” Lane said.

In an emailed statement Monday, Mary Williamson, executive director of the Anna Jaques Community Health Foundation, said the hospital is “grateful to so many individuals, businesses and community based ‘go-fund-me’ initiatives that have stepped forward to support health care workers and first responders who are putting patient needs first in our first against the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Lane said he spent $16,500 upfront for the masks, but after putting the word out on social media and other sources, he collected enough donations to cover his purchases.

The idea to track down and distribute the masks came from two sources, the first being his mother — a nurse for 42 years at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. The second came from the many calls he received from other nurses who said there was a desperate need for masks.

“It kind of hit home,” Lane said. “I sell houses, but there’s not a lot of that going on so I kind of took this on.”
