A New Home in Boxford

After helping Maryles' extended family find a new home in Boxford a few month's earlier, Nest's Debra LaPorte guided Maryles on the next stop of her journey in finding a new home near her family in Boxford.

It was quite an honor for Debra LaPorte to recently work with Maryles Casto, author of a newly released book “A Hole in the Clouds: From Flight Attendant to Silicon Valley CEO (Silicon Valley Press). Appearing in Forbes.com, Maryles noted, “We always hear about the men who built companies in Silicon Valley, but what about the women?”  Originally from the Philippines, “Hole in the Clouds” tells the story of how Maryles Casto turned a $1,500 startup into the Silicon Valley’s go-to travel agency working with titans of the industry including Apple’s Steve Jobs, Intel’s Andy Grove and Oracle’s Larry Ellison.

Finding Home in Boxford

Having lived in San Jose, CA for many years, Maryles’ extended family – son, his wife, and their two daughters relocated to Boxford, MA in early 2021.  When Maryles came to visit, she fell in love with the area and understood why they chose it to be their new home. “I love the feeling of being out in the country – the apple picking festival was a winner!” says Casto. With the beautiful trees and spaciousness of the area, Maryles decided to purchase a home near her family. As luck would have it her love of gardening was satiated with incredible organic gardens surrounding the home.

“Our relationship will continue,” notes Debra, "as Maryles is interested in getting to know new people and places of interest."
