About Steve Facella
I was born in Brooklyn, NY to the children of Italian immigrants. Mom and Dad wanted to get out of the big city so when I was 10 we moved to Orlando. I lived in Orlando for over 30 years and watched it grow from a small town to a big city in its own right. Because I am really a big kid at heart, I am also a big fan of the theme parks in Central Florida.
In my early 20's, at my fathers' urging, I applied and was hired by Ma Bell (AT&T). He kept saying "Get a job with benefits!" because every parent wants their children to be well taken care of. I reluctantly obliged and ended up manufacturing computer chips, which turned out to be a pretty cool job.
Then the dreaded words "downsizing" and "spin-off" echoed in the hallways and before I knew it, they closed the factory where I had worked for 21 years. Luckily they offered incentives to take classes and train for new jobs. I had become interested in real estate after buying and renovating my first home. So I decided to further my interest and take Real Estate classes and was licensed shortly thereafter.
I have since relocated to Lake Worth and begun my association with The Pier Group and now ReMax Prestige Realty. I fell in love with this area as soon as I arrived. The miles of waterfront, the historic downtown area and the incredible diversity of its residents have captivated me. I now look forward to helping others discover Lake Worth's irresistible charm and all of the wonderful cities that surround it.
