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.

Graduation Dates – 2009 College Commencements in Cambridge and Boston

Graduation DayIt’s college commencement season. The colleges around Cambridge and Boston play a large role in making the city such a lively and vibrant place to be.  And nothing’s more exciting than graduation day.  It’s always fun to spot new grads in their robes accompanied by proud family members. 

And if you’re not lucky to attend the commencement you can’t help but hope to catch a glimpse of the honored guest here to provide words of wisdom to the new grads – Larry Bird, Smokey Robinson, Matt Lauer, Gwen Ifill, Ted Koppel and Steven Speilberg are among those scheduled to speak this year or to receive honorary degrees.

Boston and Cambridge hotels will be full. Soon after, the last of the UHauls will pull away from curbs lined with discarded furniture.  The summer is a quieter time in Cambridge and Boston – there are parking spaces to be found, the lines for brunch are shorter, and the subway’s not quite as crowded.

So when are the 2009 graduation ceremonies?
