During this holiday season, we’re sending out a simple message of gratitude to one of our first and longest sponsors: Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency. I first met Susan Antalek Pagones during a joint BeaconArts / Beacon Chamber Member Mingle at St. Rocco’s, and it is an evening I will always remember for its illumination of how history is handed down in Beacon.
Right after introducing myself and saying I had just moved here and where my house was, Susan turned to her colleague, Terry Williams, to ask her: “Who’s house is that?” Now, I knew whose house it was from the young family we bought it from (they bought it years ago, and opted to move closer to the mountain), but Susan and Terry knew it from the two generations of the family who had lived there prior.
I have since heard about this other family from our first plumber who could identify the pipes in the basement as his own among the other pipes that were not his work. The next person who knew our home better than me was a handyman I hired for my office to hang an OPEN sign from the ceiling, who it turns out, was friends with the son of the family who owned our home decades ago. They have since both turned into professional home improvement professionals, which makes sense when I notice the creatively custom built details around our home.
Susan teaches me about community-centered business all of the time. Susan, her partner Vince Lemma, and their team of dedicated agents can help make insurance easier for you (home, condo, renters, business, health, car, etc.). Learn about how in this exclusive interview with Susan Antalek Pagones here, and the interview we did with Vince here.
Thank you Team Antalek and Moore for supporting local media and A Little Beacon Blog!
