I've always wondered how homeowners change light bulbs, dust shelves, or wash windows in those huge soaring entries popular in some newer houses.   Today I got one answer - at least for a commercial building with a multi-story atrium.   Seems like a lot to go through to change a light bulb.  You ...

This morning for the first time in days I had a soft boiled egg.  It's a usual part of my breakfast - it's even part of the cat's routine.  Champ and I call it "egg plate" - when I'm done he gets to lick the egg yellow off the plate. Neither of us is enthused about a hard boiled egg.  But that's ...

One of my favorite ways to amuse myself is what I call the "serendipity search" in MLS.  I really love houses. I admit it.  It's one of the reasons I got into real estate and a big part of why I love my job so much.  Whenever I search online I tend to use fewer, rather than more, words.  I simply...

Confession here - I'm no green thumb.  Gardening doesn't hold a lot of appeal to me - I don't like being outside in the summer heat and there are other ways I prefer to fill my time.  Happily though, I've become an accidental farmer.  Several years ago I bought a house that came with a grape vine...

Last night I was playing around with the IDX on my website.  I was startled to see that my listing search results didn't include the Description field - just photos and the little snippets of info about size, etc.  No matter how much I fiddled I couldn't get the Description to show. I was stumped...

A colleague told me this story about a listing and it's an excellent illustration of the value of staging. The house came on the market, furnished with the seller's possessions, and quickly went under agreement. Just days before the closing the deal fell apart. The house went back on the market. ...

Not to make light of addiction or treatment but I had to chuckle when I came across this AP story in the Boston Globe.  Turns out there's a new treatment center for online addicts. The center, called ReSTART, opened in Seattle as a residential treatment facility for internet addiction. I think th...

We've got really good bumper stickers around Cambridge and I've started snapping photos of them for my blog.  As a real estate agent I don't have bumper stickers (well I finally put one on my car last year for the election) on my car as much as I would like to. I'm sometimes tempted to put my all...

Cambridge real estate agents don't often use lockboxes so this was such an unusual sight I had to take a picture. My buyer and I were wondering about owner occupancy in the condo building we were visiting.  I had to guess after seeing this collection on the railing outside that it wasn't going t...
