Albert J Rinetti, Feb. 25, 1934 – Sept. 2, 2010

.Al was the founder of Rinetti & Co., but he was so much more than that.  He mentored countless agents (some that didn’t even work for him).  His drive and passion for professionalism were the hallmark of his career.  Never one to mince words he often said it like it was, much to the chagrin of his daughter, but clients seemed to respect that and praise him for his candor.  More than one occasion we looked at each other and said “only Al could get away with saying that”.

He taught us more than business etiquette and real estate practices, he was a proponent of good manners, exceptional listening skills, and how to diffuse a tension filled moment in time.  From his dress to the way he carried himself to the way he made others feel about themselves, he was the embodiment of class.  I watched people light up when he walked into a room, or go out of there way to shake hands with him.  Always gracious and never one to back away from a friendly conversation Al taught me what it is to be a genuine person.

Forget his business acumen, Al made people around him better.  Better for knowing him and sharing in his life.  As much as I will miss his vast wealth of knowledge I miss the man ten times more.  He has played a huge role in our lives and we thank him for leaving such a profound positive impact on each and every one of us.

To a life well lived…cheers Al.
