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.

Centers and Squares Debuts

I’m one of those people who likes to go back to the beginning of a blog to look for an introductory post to get a handle on what the writer’s intentions are, what’s likely to be found on the site, what’s the plan, etc.  So if you’re “one of those people” too this one’s for you!

What You’ll Find on Centers & Squares

I’m a real estate agent in Cambridge, Massachusetts at Coldwell Banker on Huron Avenue and I love what I do. My intention is to share my enthusiasm and expertise by writing a lot about real estate – what’s happening in the real estate market, exciting new listings that have come on the market, how to meet your goals as a buyer or seller, real estate news, and more. My territory is broad but since my job is to help sellers sell their homes and buyers to buy properties, I can’t possibly find the time to write about every town in which I work.  Initially, my goal is to write about the Massachusetts towns that form the inner core of my market – Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Belmont, Arlington and Watertown.  If you have questions about other nearby towns please let me know – it’s your questions that I aim to answer on this site.

I’ve been selling real real estate since 2000 but have lived in New England my entire life, primarily in Massachusetts where I grew up.  I love where I live and look forward to sharing the rich resources of this area with you – whether you already call the area home or are considering a move to Cambridge or nearby.  So look for posts on local history, culture, natural resources, architecture, and more – all that gives this area its unique charm.  Cambridge and Boston have a wealth of colleges and universities and that guarantees there’s always lots to do often at no or nominal cost.  Check back often for information about local events – lectures, movies, fairs, festivals, exhibits, sporting events, etc.  And since I’m a huge fan of house tours, garden tours, and open studios you’ll find the most complete lists of upcoming tours here as well. 

What’s Up With the Centers & Squares Name?

It’s not unusual for a newcomer to the area to ask, while we’re driving around the city on tour, “What’s up with all the squares?” It can sometime seem that you hit another city square every few blocks. Almost all of the Red Line T stops on this side of the river (that’s the Charles River of course) are squares – Kendall Square, Central Square, Harvard Square, Porter Square, and Davis Square.  And the squares don’t end there – there are at least a half dozen others in Cambridge and Somerville alone.  Venture outside the city and you’ll hit the town centers of nearby communities – and more town squares too.  So “Centers and Squares” it was – my best stab at describing the diverse communities that make up the greater Cambridge area.

Search For Real Estate

Since this is primarily a real estate site, after all, I want to be sure to point out that there’s an excellent real estate search tool on the site.  The button is at the top of every page, on the side bar, and often in individual articles. Search by map or search by your criteria – whatever works best for you.  And if you want to schedule a showing or ask a question about a property that you find, I’m only a phone call, text message, or email away.
