Gregory F. Anderson
Gregory Anderson was born in Crooked River, Clarendon, a small town on the island of Jamaica. Greg’s parents, Herold and Eula went to the States when he was a very young child to pursue the American dream. He was raised by his grandmother in a very small modest home. Growing up with nature, animals, and the farm in the country, he enjoyed his childhood in the country as life was carefree. Life was always innocent as a child, with wonderful family members, the struggles of poverty and the hard day-to-day issues associated with life were non-existence to him and he will always be grateful to his family for that.
When Eula and Herold got situated in the United States, Gregory came to live with them, he came to the States at the young age of eight years old, arriving in New York and seeing snow for the first time, which was quite an interesting experience, to say the least... Not knowing much, he tried his best to adapt to the American culture. There was a lot of judgment and ridicule for not knowing the American life by his peers, however, he quickly adopted and began to go to school. As a younger teen, the presence of the inner city of Boston had some temporary negative influences, but he did not let that stop him. There were some hick-ups along the way, but he acquired his associate's degree from Roxbury Community College.
The next stop was UMass Boston, where he completed a Bachelor's Degree and that was not enough for Greg as school was one of his dear and true passions. As he knew that education could not be taken away like material possessions. He also wanted to make sure he made his parents very proud as they have dedicated their entire lives to him and his brothers. He decided to pursue a master’s program in which he completed a double master acquiring an MBA, and an (MSF) Masters in Science and Finance.
Real estate just happened to come into Greg's lap, while going to school he was working at State Street Corporation and quickly realized that this was not the job for him. Even though it was more in alignment with his educational pursuit, there was a need to pay for books and other expenses. Real estate was another opportunity that presented itself, it was almost accidental, he noticed an ad in the paper (Patriot Ledger) for 3A Apartments with a gentleman named Bob Birch (he and Bob are friends to this day and will always be grateful for Bob's introduction to this world of real estate) in the Wollaston area of Quincy. He quickly realized he had a knack for real estate, it was basically just communicating with people and solving their problems, and it provided flexibility while he was going to school and a good consistent cash flow for expenses.
He finished school with honors. Real estate was much more up his alley as he could communicate with people and realized he could create his own destiny by being an entrepreneur, which was always one of his dreams in life. After being with Bob for many years, Greg decided he would like to open his own practice, even though he appreciated all of the experiences learned with Bob, Greg decided to move on.
That’s when he opened ACB Realty, Inc. in February 2010. Since that date, the company has grown to a nine-person organization and he has acquired multiple pieces of real estate along the way including a mixed-use building in Stoughton where he renovated the entire building, which is currently the second office. Complete renovation with glass partitions, custom-made conference table, reception desk, and fully modern facility with expansion for more.
Greg is currently licensed to do business in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Connecticut and expanding to other territories. The inclusion of a JD (real estate attorney) is within the horizon, in addition to auction licenses and other tools to assist in the business of Real Estate. Greg has always had a passion for school, achievements and the potential is limitless and he believes, you only get one life. His passion and dedication are relentless, let’s see what the future holds for this entrepreneur from the tiny island of Jamaica.
