newton luxury homes: Convenience is more important than location - 09/09/15 09:54 PM
Convenience is more important than location, I think. The real estate truism is, location, location, location and I disagree. Convenience is more important than location. A property that is convenient but in a poor location is more likely to sell than a property in a good location but convenient to nothing. I am just saying that location is only important in real estate if that location is convenient.
47 Dudley Road, Newton MA. MLS 71897990 is convenient to everything. Located on the eastern edge of Newton Center and right off Boylston Street this property is hidden behind a wall of old growth … (6 comments)

Welcome Home, Newton, MA Luxury.  You know the feeling.  Some houses just have a good feel about them. The scale, the flow, the light are some of the characteristics people often speak about and 114 Shornecliffe Road has all this and a good bit more.  If you can not judge a book by it's cover, than you certainly can't tell this exquisite Colonial Revival home by its curb appeal.  It's curb appeal is imposing. This home has sat on Farlow Hill as a testament to it's owners since 1911.  Five families have raised successful and loving families inside these walls. What … (4 comments)

Home delivery milkman's son's story about real estate. Growing up in Doylestown, Pa back in the days when people didn't lock their doors, left their car keys in the ignition and knew their neighbors I had the privilege to join my father in his job.  He was a home delivery milkman.  Beginning with the pick up of the products at the dairy farm each morning at 2 AM we would set out into the dark with excitement those mornings, at least I was excited. I knew I would be going into peoples houses and checking their refrigerators for what they needed.  … (26 comments)

The Needle in the Haystack, Newton Luxury Home. With all the inventory of luxury properties available right now in Newton it takes some focus to pull out the wheat from the chaff.

This makes the Newton Luxury real estate market a Buyers market. Sounds good for the buyers, right? Well it is, but this comes with the caveat that you can get a great deal, … (0 comments)

Heartbreak Hill, Newton MA Location, Location. Any runner knows this stretch of road through beautiful Newton on the way to the finish line of the famed Boston Marathon.  A turn East onto Beacon Street off Centre Street begins the trek up.  The homes that line Beacon Street are beautiful and stately. The hill is not really a true hill, but the heartbreak is that it goes on for many, many, many blocks until you pass Boston College and head into Boston itself near Cleveland Circle.  At this point twenty plus miles into this world class marathon you may be running on … (9 comments)

newton luxury homes: Prospecting is the real business - 01/16/15 08:06 PM
Prospecting is the real business even though we are in the real estate business.  In most states it is not too difficult to get your license to sell real estate. It is always less time and less money than any college degree. Lots of people have their license.  The low income averages of real estate agents across the country I am sure have lots to do with people who have a license and work barely at all, part time or not very well.  Following the adage that even the blind squirrel can find the nut sometimes then any agent can find … (65 comments)

400 years of architecture in Newton MA redux.  Last month I went through the beginning era of architecture in Newton.  The link to that is right here.  Newton MA is a town just south and west of Boston only 7 miles from downtown Boston.  It is comprised of 13 villages with their own distinct feel, but as a whole they make us one of the nicest communities in Massachusetts.  I left off with Classical Revival which is also known as Neoclassical.  My current listing at 114 Shornecliffe Road on Farlow Hill is considered one of the nicest examples of this architecture … (4 comments)
