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.

House Numbers in Cambridge and Somerville – House Parts We Love

Stick On House NumberHouse numbers are important – ask any Cambridge real estate agent.  As we’re driving around and around the block, craning our neck trying to find the house where we’ve scheduled an appointment, a bright clear house number is just what we want to see.  

House numbers are also critical for emergency personnel.  In fact, the Somerville fire department requires homeowners to have a visible house number in order to get the smoke alarm certificate that’s required in Massachusetts to sell a home.

So if you have to have a house number on your home – why not make it a special one?  Cambridge and Somerville homeowners have personalized their abodes with special house numbers – made of tile, of shiny brass, of polished nickel, in script, on plaques, in gilt on glass, even in one case in colored mesh on a garden gate.

Why would you want to settle for a paste-on sticker like the one above when you could have a stylish or charming house number like one of these?

    Nice selection of house numbers here. I especially like the number 38 example using art deco style numbers. We are a house sign company located in the UK who make house numbers as well as house names and full address plates. Some of our our house numbers ranges are reflective for better visibility at night.
