Autumn, a time of apple harvests, pumpkin patches and changing leaves. New England is one of the best places to experience all of them. With so many places and a limited amount of weekends to have these autumn experiences it’s good to do a little web browsing before you hit the road.

 

Pumpkin Patches 

A full map of Massachusetts gives you a visual of where to find the best patches. Links to assorted pumpkin topics: how to choose one, carve one, eat one - in a pie, what to do with them after Halloween. It’s is one of the more entertaining autumn themed sites for adults and kids.

Apple Picking

Recently Boston.com published a list of 10 orchards located within an hour’s driving distance from downtown Boston. A Google map to plan your trip, and a listing of each orchard, which includes distance, contact information and rates, makes it easy to choose where to have your apple picking adventure(s) .

Fall Foliage Viewing

With a map, weekly foliage reports and slide shows, this website has all the information for you to make your 2014 leaf viewing experience a magical one to remember. There is also a Kid’s Corner where you’ll find some very fun art projects using leaves. You’ll be able to enjoy the artistry of autumn long after the beautiful colors have faded.

Man Cave - Fan Cave

by Eric Glassoff

 

It’s that time of the year. Baseball season is heading towards the playoffs, NFL and College Football games are kicking off every weekend, and the start of the NBA and the NHL seasons are right around the corner.

If you are a BIG sports fan looking to have the ultimate fan experience in the comfort of your home, then you may be ready for a sports-themed man cave. Before you get ready to paint and decorate your favorite team's colors in your designated room, you’ll want to do a little research. This is a major home improvement decision which can impact the value of your home, your finances and the environment of your family home.

Testimonials

I was a first time home buyer looking a place in Brookline, and Newton area for a quite well, and tiredly had worked with several agents in 2008-2009.  I decided to find a place myself, and it happened that I found that sales agent Eric Glassoff had lots of the hot units in Brookline for sale.  So why not work with him as buyer agent then?After I started to work with him, I was so impressed with his professional knowledge, ability to educate clients, working efficiency, honesty, loyalty, and the capability to make a deal happen in the best interest of his client.  After I looked at 2-3 properties, I happily bought a dream home at Newton.  I strongly recommend Eric to any home buyers, as his excellence in business as well as his loyalty to his clients will bring you satisfaction in purchasing your dream home.  "Susan Zhang"...
