Boston Real Estate


A rambling Boston real estate broker.

In the last few days, rush hour traffic on the T is back to the way it was during the before time.  Last year at this time it seems like the streets were lined with cars on Charles Street in Beacon Hill, now the cars are gone, apparently, restaurants are taking over the parking spaces. I have no problem with that, I do wish it was more uniformed on the appearance.

I have talked with friends and family who are going back to the office and so far none of them really want to go back. One family member lucked out when his company was purchased by a company that is located out of state. He gets to stay employed and work from home. Nice!

I ride my bike sometimes from Lexington and I noticed there is a lot of traffic on the bike path on the Charles in the evenings and on weekends too.  By the way, what’s up with these little electric scooters. Are these youngsters smirking at me when they pass me by? with till I lose weight, I’ll show them who the king of the bike path is.

What else do I want to talk about?

I have to pay my own health insurance and I don’t get paid during vacations and there is no pay for sick days. That might seem like a bad thing but it is a trade-off. It would be nice to have benefits and freedom but that isn’t a thing.

It will be interesting to see if the pandemic has any kind of long-term impact on where people want to live.  I don’t have any advice on this except to say that buying a downtown Boston condo, please consider me as your broker, remember, purchasing a Boston condo is more of a longer-term commitment than most employers will make. I still live in the home in Lexington that was close to jobs but I haven’t had any of those jobs for 20 years.
