After 25 Years with Nestor Financial, Lisa is set for Retirement!

It is with a mix of sadness and excitement that my dedicated assistant at Nestor Financial, Lisa Mastropietro, has announced her decision to retire this year. Lisa has been with me from the beginning and we have shared the highs and lows of building the successful business Nestor Financial has become. It simply would not have been possible without Lisa by my side. 

It is impossible to state all the outstanding qualities that Lisa brought to our office. Our clients and partners knew to expect nothing short of the highest standards of professionalism and service, with that personal touch that made Lisa such an invaluable member of our team. Lisa is someone many of us are lucky enough to consider a freind, not just the voice at the other end of the line, offering advice, wisdom, humor, and assurance to everyone in the Nestor Financial family. 

Although we are all going to miss her terribly, and life at our office will never be the same, it is incredibly exciting for Lisa to be able to spend more time with her beautiful, and growing family. We know what a loving person Lisa is, so all of those grandkids are exceptionally lucky to have such a wonderful Grandma to spend lots of time with! Lisa also plans to indulge in her interests including gardening and traveling with her new found freedom.

We are eternally grateful for the 25 years that Lisa spent at Nestor Financial and the legacy she has left. For all your tireless work, friendship, love, and especially all of the laughs....Thank you. We love you and will miss you! Good luck.

Nestor Financial Network Community Service Award 2020

Our clients go above and beyond when it comes to community service. Beginning in 2018, we have honored an exemplary client for their efforts, not only with our Give Back programs, but with several others in their communities. In the past, we were able to have a more formal presentation at our annual Client Appreciation event. This year, we wanted to make a big announcement.


Joan Jacobs has been a client at Nestor Financial for over 20 years.  She retired in 2006 and since then, she has dedicated much of her retirement to helping others in the community. 


In addition to her active volunteer work at the United Church of Christ Congregational in Milford, Joan has been a huge supporter of the Nestor Financial Give Back programs.  She has baked endless cakes for the children at the Boys & Girls Club of Milford.  Regularly, she donates to our troops through Project From the Heart.  In addition, she enlisted the efforts of many to making dozens of hats for Chemo Caps for Kids.


It is with great pleasure and honor to award Joan the 2020 Nestor Financial Community Service Award.  


Thank you, Joan, for all that you do.
