The Founders


Steven Lawton

The management and development of real estate has been a passion of Steven Lawton's over the past two decades. While Steve is well known for the companies he has built, grown, and managed in the service industry, he has consistently kept a firm footing in the long-term real estate market personally owning several hundred units over the years. Like many of us Steve has had to manage his portfolio through the various peaks and valleys, yet he still remains a true believer in the long-term benefits of Real Estate. Steve's vast experience finding, vetting, and hiring the various contractors that provide services to his personal properties as well as the properties managed by AMG is a difference-maker for our clients. Many of Rhode Island's top 100 companies have relied on the contacts and services Steve can provide to grow and manage their respective brands. Personally, ``Enjoying life and being extremely grateful for what we all have`` is the philosophy Steve lives his life by. When the opportunity presents itself for a brief reprieve, Steve loves enjoying time with his family at Lake Winnipesaukee or in Misquamicut, RI.
