The view to Saint Mark’s Church

Saint Mark’s Church was converted into loft-like condominiums in the 1980s. It stands in interesting contrast to its next door neighbor 70/80 Park Street, a mid-century high rise condominium association, and the location of my client’s home inspection last week.

I love showing and selling property in Brookline. If you are interested in seeing, selling, or buying property in Brookline, please be in touch!

Big love for Jamaica Plain

When I met Jen and Adam, they were newlyweds searching for a home where they would start their life and a family together. The competition and rising prices in Somerville and Cambridge were discouraging, so we added Jamaica Plain (JP) to the search. Jen and Adam were inspired by the gentler price points, the gorgeous green spaces, and the great neighborhood feeling that JP offers, and had an accepted offer in no time!

They’ve been in their home for nearly two years now, and when I visited a couple months back, they took me on a tour of the gorgeous improvements they’ve made– including the world’s sweetest nursery. Jen and Adam love their easy commute, the mix of suburban and city living, and how easily they can walk to Centre Street for good eats. JP was the right choice for them!

JP has experienced the same rising prices as other areas of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. The average sale price of condos was 9% higher in 2015 than in 2014 when Jen and Adam closed. (Based on sold data from the Multiple Listing Service.) More condos were sold in 2015 than in 2014 (34, to be exact), but at a price per square foot 13% higher.

Don’t be discouraged!  Patience, a strategic plan, and my support as your buyer agent will help get you closer to dreamy walks through the Arboretum and picnics by the pond. Please reach out. I’m here to help!
