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.

Green Line Extension to Route 16

It's not the Green Line - but you get the idea - and it's such a beautiful shot

There’s a meeting this Wednesday to talk about the possibility of extending the Green Line to Route 16 / Mystic Valley Parkway.

This is the kickoff of a “community visioning process” to discuss the benefits and impacts of the potential Green Line extension to Route 16.

I’m a big proponent of bringing the Green Line to 16 – there’s a dense neighborhood that will be served by a station at Route 16 and it would be a huge loss to only bring the Green Line to Tufts. My fear from early on is that we’d end up with another T line built to serve a college, rather than a neighborhood, a la the Boston College line.

The Green Line extension will improve property values, make transportation so much easier for Hillside, East Arlington, Somerville and West Medford residents, and allow locals to consider going car free. It will improve quality of life for decades to come.

Just think… you’ll be able to hop on the T and head into Boston, take the T to the airport rather than a cab, invite friends and family over to visit even if they don’t drive, tell prospective tenants that “the house is two blocks from the T Station”, etc. $4 a gallon gas – heck, $6 or $8 a gallon for gas – no problem – commute on the T and rent a Zip Car when you want to drive.

The Community Visioning Kick-Off meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2011 from 6 to 8 pm at the Brooks Elementary School, 388 High Street, Medford MA.
