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.

Fences – More House Parts We Love

Diamond Patterned Fence Near Harvard Square in Cambridge

I think of fences as house parts since it’s the whole package  we fall in love with when a house catches our eye.  And a fence is often the first thing someone sees when they walk up to your house. 

If you’re trying to decide on a style, Cambridge is great for getting ideas – you’ll find all styles of handsome or charming fences here – from the modest to the elaborate or fanciful.  Most are made of wood – believe me you won’t be seeing any plastic on these pages – from picket fences to grander versions, some vintage cast iron can be found as well as ones that use granite for posts or bases.

There are a couple of popular companies in our area if you’re thinking of adding a border at the street or want to enclose your yard:

Walpole Woodworkers‘ exquisite work can be spotted along Brattle Street and elsewhere in Cambridge.

W.J. McDonough Fence has done a couple of fences for me and does very nice work
