Meet the Max Dublin Team
MAX DUBLIN | A native of Cambridge, growing up near Fresh Pond in the heart of Huron Village. He has intimate knowledge of the city and can add both insight and a local perspective based on having spent the better part of his life in the area. He grew up going to both private and public schools in Cambridge and later returned to receive his undergraduate degree from Lesley University.
Max ventured into real estate shortly after buying his first home and becoming intrigued with the idea of being something different than your average Realtor. After a first hand experience of meeting numerous people in the industry that did not impress him, he felt there was a need for more good agents and there was certainly a place for a person like him in real estate. He has quickly become an incredibly successful agent over the last ten years and a favorite for other brokers to work with. Over the last two years he sold 117 properties with a gross sales volume of over $130M. He attributes his success not only to hard work but also taking time to connect with his clients and make sure they know he is working for them.
He has worked with a variety of clients, including first time home buyers, where he draws on his background in teaching to make sure that all parts of the transaction are fully understood. He takes the time to go through all of the details from start to finish in order ensuring that his clients understand everything they are agreeing to before signing anything. He also enjoys working with sellers, where his professionalism and attention ensure that all aspects of the home selling process go as smoothly as possible.
Before working in residential real estate, Max was an elementary school teacher with 5th & 6th grade students. As a teacher his patience and his ability enabled him to work with a variety of personalities. He has brought these people skills to his career in real estate and takes pride and gratification in helping people work through what can be a difficult and challenging process. He resides in East Arlington and when he is not working, enjoys spending time with his wife and three young sons as well as playing golf and basketball.

THOMAS LOMENZO | With parents as proprietors of a boutique brokerage on Cape Cod, Thomas developed an affinity for the unpredictable and rewarding experiences of the real estate industry at a young age. Summer mornings spent cleaning rental properties and winter afternoons checking on snow-covered listings were the genesis of his interest in the field. This intimate and early introduction laid the groundwork for Thomas’ understanding of exceptional professional service, marked by a personal touch. Prior to his involvement in residential real estate, Thomas became a certified personal trainer, eventually undertaking a position as associate strength and conditioning coach at his alma mater, Boston College High School. Following his time in coaching, he procured his salesperson’s license in April 2014, and balanced his professional endeavors while earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Thomas committed himself to representing buyers in Dennis and Brewster for several years, and assisted his parents with their top-producing business in the mid Cape. To broaden his skills in the industry, he joined the Property Management team at CBRE in downtown Boston in early 2018, managing high-end office spaces in the Financial District and Boston’s Seaport. This formative experience equipped Thomas with insight into the myriad operations of successful commercial buildings, as well as the skill to balance the desires of ownership and tenants alike. Thomas’ propensity for fostering lasting relationships and providing creative solutions called him back to his roots in residential real estate. He intends to continue the standard of “exceptional service without exception” in the Cambridge area for years to come, combining his management acumen and diverse background to provide buyers with a collaborative and engaging purchase experience. Now an Arlington resident, Thomas plays competitive tennis, serves as an alumni ambassador to BC High, and enjoys jaunts to the White Mountains for hiking.
