Tony was born and raised in Vancouver, and currently resides in Burnaby. He was married in 1991 and they have three children.
Tony graduated from Simon Fraser University in 1985 with a double major degree in Business Administration and Economics, with a core concentration in marketing and finance. He graduated from law school at the University of Victoria and has been a member of the Law Society of British Columbia since 1989. The fact he passed the bar and still remains a member of the Law Society has surprised not only his close friends but several of his university teachers.
After working in a mid size law firm in downtown Vancouver, Tony joined a small law firm in Port Coquitlam. In 1991 Tony, along with two partners started Bell Marsden Spagnuolo Legal Offices. This firm has evolved over time and is now Spagnuolo and Company Real Estate Lawyers.
Spagnuolo and Company Real Estate Lawyers is the only law firm totally dedicated to residential real estate, making the experience of buying, selling or refinancing residential property a smooth, easy and stress-free experience. This positioning has allowed Spagnuolo and Company to become the largest residential conveyancing law firm in British Columbia, and perhaps the country. We assisted over 13,000 clients purchase, sell or refinance their properties in 2006 and 2007.
Tony has been active in a variety of business and charitable areas. He is a Past President of the Chamber of Commerce serving Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. He is also a past Director of the Mortgage Brokers Association of British Columbia and the Coquitlam Foundation and currently sits on the Foundation for St. Thomas More High School and the executive of Burnaby Minor Lacrosse. He has donated time and money in the past to Habitat for Humanity, The Looking Glass Foundation, the Huntington Society of Canada, Union Gospel Mission, dozens of local kid’s sports teams and countless other worthwhile causes.
Tony participates in a number of sports, including golf, hockey, mountain biking and squash. Of course, he is no good at any of them. When not in the office, which is normally the case, he can be found being involved in his family’s activities, in particular coaching all three children at various times in lacrosse, soccer and hockey. Poor kids! They want a good coach for once.
Feel free to contact Tony directly at 604-777-7406.
