Being a member of the City’s East Cambridge/Kendall Open Spaces Planning Team (ECKOS for short), allows me to stay on top of things that are going on in this part of town — and there is A LOT going on! Check out this map documenting road improvements, work on parks, and various construction projects happening now…

If you lived at 44 Radcliffe Road, this would be your neighborhood bar/restaurant:
I’m co-listing these three newly converted condos with my colleague Natasha Burger, and in the few weeks we’ve spent in the neighborhood, we’ve both really grown to love it. MANY of the neighbors have stopped by our open houses and are super friendly — many have lived in their homes for decades, while some are new to the block. All of them are very excited about their newest *neighbor,* the bar/restaurant Sarma, which has really become a destination since it opened last month. I’ve already eaten there twice and highly recommend it!
Anyway, here’s some info on Unit 2, which we just posted to MLS this week. Note that Unit 3 is now under agreement and Unit 1 (which comes with 2 parking spaces) is still available.
44 Radcliffe Road, Unit 2, Somerville — 2BR/1ba, 1016 sf — listed at $389,000

I’m a big fan of having lots of art and photos on my walls, as you can see from this photo of my living room. But I know the prospect of hanging pictures can be daunting, so am happy to share a really great “how to” piece I found on Elle Decor’s site. It’s got great tips ranging from what to use to hang your art to how much space to leave between frames — check it out…

It’s that time of year again… Thanksgiving, which means family, turkey, football, and PIE! And while pie in itself is a wonderful thing, it can be doubly great if your pie comes from Pie in the Sky, Community Servings’ annual Thanksgiving “bake sale” supporting programs that deliver healthy, culturally- and medically-specific meals to over 1,300 of our Massachusetts neighbors battling cancer, HIV/AIDS, MS, Lupus and other acute, life-threatening illnesses.
Last year, my office’s pie selling team sold more than 1000 pies — that’s more than $25,000 raised for Community Servings — and we hope to do it again (or more!) this year. And that’s where you come in…
How It Works
Over 150 of Greater Boston’s best chefs, restaurants, caterers and hotels donate their time & resources to bake up thousands of yummy pies.
A network of ~ 600 pie sellers volunteer their time to market and sell pies to their family, friends, colleagues, clients and neighbors.
Thousands of individuals order our $25 pies (apple, pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato & sugar-free apple) in advance of the holidays, and pick them up on the day before Thanksgiving from one of more than 80 pick-up locations around Greater Boston.
Each $25 pie sold provides a full week’s worth of healthy, delicious meals to a person too ill to shop an cook for themselves.
How You Can Help
Want to be a part of this amazing endeavor? Buy a pie today!
Not going to be around for Thanksgiving? Buy a pie for a Community Servings client, or just donate money to the cause!

Conveniently located in the heart of the city near the library and City Hall, with easy access to Routes 28 and 93, Sullivan Station and just a half-mile to vibrant Union Square with its many cafés, restaurants, shops, farmers market and community festivals. And this neighborhood is poised for great things. Check out what’s on the docket…
Local celebrity restaurateurs Ana Sortun and Cassie Piuma, of Oleana and Sofra fame, just opened their new restaurant Sarma on the corner of Marshall and Pearl Streets, just down the street from 44 Radcliffe. The much-anticipated restaurant is a “friendly neighborhood mezze bar” drawing inspiration from Turkey and beyond.
And… The Gilman Square Station of the Green Line Extension will be right there too, with entrances on Medford and School Streets. “We aim to reestablish Gilman Square as a transit-focused civic, residential, and commercial location,” said Deborah Fennick, architect at Fennick & McCreadie Architecture, the firm that designed the station.

12 Silvey Place, Somerville — 3-unit with 6 BRs, 3 baths, 3021 sf on a 2777 sf lot — listed for $949,900
A rare example of a multi-family that can immediately generate great rents without any necessary renovation! This Porter Square 3-family is in great shape, will be delivered with two of the three units vacant, and the third unit will be vacated by the end of the year. Current rents are below market value, which should be in the range of $2100 per unit. There is no off-street parking, but there is a great back yard.
There won’t be any open houses and all showings must be accompanied, so if you have any interest, please get in touch.
