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.

Cambridge Comes Out On Top

Today’s Sunday Boston Globe was chock-a-block full of real estate related articles.  If you didn’t get your copy there’s still time to hit the corner store.  There’s loads to read for the real estate obsessed.

The Boston Globe Magazine was all about real estate with the cover article titled “Top Spots To Live: The Best Communities in 15 Categories”.  The Globe polled realtors for their votes.  I’m a realtor but I don’t remember voting.  But even without my admittedly biased vote, I’m happy to report that Cambridge placed more times than any other Massachusetts city or town

And the winners are….

Cambridge MA Takes Top PrizeCambridge was anointed “Top for Singles-Friendly Activities and Night Life

Cambridge also won Honorable Mentions for:

  • Fitness Minded Folks
  • Foodies
  • Arts Lovers
  • Hipsters
  • Public Transit Fans

Somerville was the winner in the “Top for Hipsters” category and won Honorable Mention in the Singles-Friendly Activities and Night Life category. I remember years ago when Utne Reader magazine called Somerville one of the hippest places in the US.  At the time I thought it was a stretch but Somerville has been trending in that direction ever since.  With a vibrant arts community, rejuvenated Davis Square (not to mention Ball Square and Union Square), and a forward-thinking local government, Somerville deserves the kudos.

Arlington received Honorable Mention in the Foodies category. Arlington has become a hot bed of restaurants since the blue laws regulating the serving of alcohol were relaxed.

Melrose received Honorable Mentions in both the Car Commuters and Public-Transit Fans categories due to its easy access to commuter routes and to the three train stations in town.

Brookline won in the category “Top for Great Schools and Kid-Friendly Activities” and received Honorable Mentions in the Retirement Lifestyle and Public-Transit Fans categories

I’d say we did alright – no wonder we love living here! 

And if you’d like to live here too and want some help with your search – I’m just a phone call or email away!
