Committee Member: Massimo LoPorto
San Francisco - Realtor at Vanguard Properties
When the recession left Massimo LoPorto without a job, he pivoted to a passion he long held: real estate. With his nose to the grind, the former transportation planner studied and obtained his real estate license, becoming one of San Francisco’s elite sellers. Now in the prime of his life, the thing that keeps him going is the fact that, “Every day is different.”
San Jose, CA.
Castro District, San Francisco.
B.S. from San Jose State University.
Although I don’t play sports, I thoroughly enjoy working out and regularly taking Barry’s classes. My alarm goes off at 5:15am each day, and I head straight to the gym or Barry’s. I find it’s a great way to start the day, and helps keep my weeks consistent.
Rio de Janeiro for New Year’s–the fireworks were the most incredible I have ever seen. Visiting Christ the Redeemer was equally amazing.
It would be amazing to take a month or two off and sail a yacht through the Mediterranean and spend time in Barcelona, Nice, Monaco, Capri, Malta and Santorini.
Anything Mexican! I love the flavors, and if you choose right, it is well-balanced.
The banana split at Bi-Rite Creamery, hands down!
I keep it simple – chicken and rice.
I recently went to Mexico City and had amazing Oaxacan black mole enchiladas at Azul Historico. Incredible!
My 4 grandparents. I would ask them all the things I never got a chance to.
Friends–I will still watch an occasional episode on Netflix when I can’t fall asleep.
The Dark Knight.
U2, Maroon 5.
Lady Gaga’s new residency show in Las Vegas, Enigma.
2018 Porsche Macan GTS. Perfect blend of sports car and SUV.
My current one!
A cool glass of Flowers Rose.
Lambert Bridge Pinot.
Anything from Sonoma.
Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro.
Going to the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building.
Never give up.
