Having worked as an attorney specializing in the conveyance of real estate, Paul brings extensive legal experience to Griffin Properties and to the zealous representation of its clients. He recognizes that, underlying considerable emotional elements, the purchase or sale of a home is a significant business transaction that must be continually nurtured and monitored up until the time of the deed’s recording. The foundation of Paul’s business acumen and negotiating skills began during his work in the Tax Division of Price Waterhouse, and has continued to grow during his many years at Griffin Properties where he evidences the concern of an attorney, the care of a doctor, and the compassion of a counselor. Paul holds a B.A. in Economics/Finance from Saint Lawrence University in Canton, NY, A Juris Doctor from the New England School of Law in Boston, and graduate degrees in Canon Law and Sacred Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome. A native of Cambridge, Paul lives in the Peabody School neighborhood of Cambridge.
Joanna C. Kirylo
Phone: 617-354-5888 x 204
A native of Somerville, MA, Joanna has evolved into a true Anglophile after having spent her junior year of college in London. A trip “across the pond” is a casual event for her, as she has developed close ties to many people in her adopted city.
Although Joanna has been associated with Griffin Properties for several years, her exposure to the world of real estate development began in her previous position as the office and purchasing manager for a large construction company, a post that led to her becoming a licensed construction supervisor. The skills that she developed while helping to coordinate large scale construction projects in a timely and cost efficient manner have been transferred to her work at Griffin Properties, where she is known and respected in the real estate community as a diligent and efficient salesperson who takes pride in the level of detailed attention that she affords to her clients.
She holds a B.A. in Journalism from Westfield State College, and lives in the Porter Square neighborhood of Somerville.

Adam Levesque comes to Griffin Properties after 20 years in the computer game industry. Adam used the knowledge gained working at Infocom and Papyrus Design Group to start his own company, Blue Fang Games. Blue Fang experienced considerable success for 10+ years, recognized most notably the game Zoo Tycoon published by Microsoft. At Blue Fang Adam was a Lead Designer, Executive Producer and Manager of over 50 people.
As the game industry went through a transition Adam realized it was time for a change. Since Chris and Adam have known each other for over 35 years and already worked together on real estate development projects it made sense for Adam to come work with Griffin Properties. Adam’s patience and ability to listen and solve problems will help him transition into the competitive world of real estate.
A native of Cambridge and a product of the Cambridge school system, Adam currently lives in Sudbury with his wife and two teenage children.
