jimI am Jim; and, I’m presently beginning a career in Real Estate. Agent Rising has prepared me well. The technology skill level however is presently a “work in progress”.

Prior to this career choice I was an educator in various school systems as a teacher, a guidance counselor and a Coach. I coached all 4 major Sports (Football, basketball, baseball and track) for 50+ years.  Football was my major sport and I served as the Head Football coach for most of the 50+ years. I began as an assistant football coach in 1958 and became a head football coach in 1964, and remained as one until 1995. Most of those were successful and winning seasons with several league championships. The schools were: New Bedford Vocational High School, Monsignor James Coyle High School, Wareham High School, Fairhaven High School and Bishop Stang High School. My coaching experience culminated as an assistant at Greater New Bedford Regional V­T High School. I retired from teaching and counseling in the Spring of 2015.

My marriage to Geraldine Ann in December of 1958 has been the bed­rock foundation of a wonderful family of 7 great children, 22 wonderful grandchildren and a brand new great grandson. Geraldine was a registered nurse and helped in every way possible to bring about a wonderful loving Family. A Christian Family trying to do the Right Things.

Working as a Real Estate Agent for my daughter Kate Lanagan MacGregor, Broker and owner of Bold Moves Real Estate, will give me the opportunity to “give back” service to others. Having worked as a bartender at some family oriented restaurants (Mike’s, Cathay Temple, Harbor Beach) also made me aware of people and their needs.

I want to bring all that has come my way, A 100% Effort and an open relationship working to serve you as your Bold New Agent.

Jim Lanagan
