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.

Shovel The Snow – It’s The Law In Massachusetts

Let It Snow! Then We'll Shovel

Let It Snow! Then We'll Shovel

Shovel The Snow – It’s The Law   Nothing better on a hot summer day than reading about snow shoveling!  Makes you feel a little cooler if only for  a moment.

The Boston Globe reported today that  the Supreme Judicial Court:

“In a historic decision, the state’s high court ruled yesterday that landowners must make sure their property is clear of any snow and ice that could cause injury to others, regardless of whether the snow came from Mother Nature or from a plow or other source”.  Read more.

Poorly shoveled sidewalks are a constant source of aggravation – and danger to pedestrians – during the winter in Cambridge. Homeowners will want to make sure that their sidewalks and driveways are clear of snow and ice or risk a lawsuit.

I’ve got my shovel ready!

    Hi CM,

    I appreciate your concerns. Winter presents challenges for us all and particularly for the elderly. You may want to contact the City of Medford (that’s not this site) at http://www.medford.org

    Just about all of the things you claim is supprisingly legitimate and it makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. But at this time there is just one issue I am not necessarily too comfortable with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual main idea of the issue, permit me see just what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.
