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.

Front Entry Benches – House Parts We Love

One of my very favorite house features are the built-in benches you sometimes see flanking a house’s front entrance.  When I lived in New Haven Connecticut I used to walk each evening through the very beautiful neighborhood where I was renting.  Many of the large, handsome homes (they were gorgeous – I have two photo albums of the houses I passed on my walk. Some people have photos of friends, family or vacations – me? I have photos of my favorite houses.) had these benches outside the front door.  I’ve found some in Cambridge but, unlike New Haven, Cambridge isn’t a hotbed of front entry benches.

The photo above is actually of a house in Newton Massachusetts that I took while attending the Newton House Tour recently.  Newton is filled with absolutely lovely houses – so I took lots of pictures of course!

More House Parts We Love:

House Numbers Don’t Have to be Boring

Decorative Metal Doorknobs

Cutout Shutters Add Instant Charm

Arlington Porches with Curved Balusters


As a busy Cambridge real estate agent I get to see a lot of houses.  I’ve taken to carrying my camera with me so when I spot a beautiful stained glass window, a rose covered arbor, a handsome set of granite steps – I snap a photo.  Check back often as I continue to share my favorite house parts.  And if you’ve got house parts you love – tell us about them!
