One of the things I enjoy about being a Greater Boston Real Estate agent is helping other discover what makes Boston, Newton, Brookline or any of the surrounding areas such a great place to live.  Each community has its own style and unique offerings, but they have a common historic backdrop that brings a sense of the rich heritage of our country.

 

My goal is to, not only bring you great real estate tips and current Greater Boston Real Estate market information, but to help you discover the lifestyle of Greater Boston.  Whether you have lived in the Greater Boston area for some time or are relocating to Boston, Brookline or Newton; you’ll find endless restaurants, shops, places to enjoy local musicians and art and much more.   

 

Looking for a way to soak in Greater Boston history this weekend?  There are a few ways to learn more about the area whether you’re a long time resident or thinking about moving to this great town.  Take a look!
