Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Growing Up In North Cambridge

North Cambridge Victorian

North Cambridge Victorian

Have you seen the magazine Growing Up In North Cambridge?  The magazine is a “journal of stories of years gone by” filled with articles, vintage photographs and reminiscences of people who called North Cambridge home over the years.

The magazine is really a treasure and a great way to learn about the neighborhood.  I’ve only lived in North Cambridge as an adult but it’s easy to imagine how much fun reading about the places and people of your childhood must be to those who grew up here. The magazine encourages submissions – articles, letters, and comments are welcomed.

An earlier issue had a fascinating article about the estate that occupied the land where the Porter Square Shopping Center was built. In the Fall issue, the ninth to be published, I was interested to read the article about the distinctive Victorian at 2203 Mass Ave pictured above.  The Cambridge Historical Society toured the house earlier this year and presented a talk about the development of the neighborhood.

I picked up my copy of Growing Up In North Cambridge at an insurance office on Mass Ave.  Local stores sell issues – Pemberton Market, Porter Square Books – look for a notice in the window of stores along Mass Avenue.  Back issues can be purchased online at the magazine’s website.
