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.

Happy Valentines Day From Centers and Squares

Early Valentine With House In The Background

Early Valentine With House In The Background


Before I became a real estate agent I was an archivist. I’ve always loved old paper and have collected all sorts of ephemera.

Not surprisingly there’s often a common denominator in what I collect – house images are everywhere. 

Catalogs, greeting cards, postcards, magazines, letterhead, and yes – valentines – often have very charming vintage house images.

Here’s a vintage Valentine from the early 1900s, maybe the 1920s or a bit earlier.  I love the sweet little Cape in the background and the curving path behind the swinging gate. You  just want to pinch the rosy cheeks of the boy and girl – him in his sailor suit, her in her gingham bonnet.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
