Get out the ladder, it’s time to clean out the leaves and whatever-else from your gutters so the rain and snow wash away rather than freeze and create ice dams! It’s a super easy #hometiptuesday and a total DIY, unless of course your ladders don’t reach (or heights are not your thing) in which case […]
We gave away 500 pieces of candy, a hundred “bones” pens and a hundred slime-covered “eyeball” bouncy balls from our ‘haunted house for sale” at the Rec Department’s trunk-or-treat. Our past clients got mini pumpkins, too. Jeannine was a spooky ghost hiding in our darkened van. Ours was a popular trunk!
We woke up to a crispy frost this morning, and it was a good reminder to shut off outdoor faucets so they don’t freeze (and run the risk of bursting) when the temps drop. If you’re like me and have no idea where October went, let this be a your reminder – it is such […]
To support the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust, this fun 5k really brings the Lincoln community together! Grateful Barrett Sotheby’s supports this event, a stones throw from our office. We get to see favorite clients!
There is so little on the market in Lincoln and the pent-up demand feels palpable. Is it borne out in the data? YES! But less so in surrounding towns. One year ago, today, there were 25 single family houses on the market in Lincoln, now there are 16. That works out to only three months’ […]

Top notch restaurants and shops meet at a commuter rail station that serves Cambridge and Boston. Concords great schools (No. 2 High School in Massachusetts!) resources for kids and families, walkable village center and […]
This August was the warmest on record in Massachusetts. My basement was cool and dry, though, and another important way to protect your investment is to make sure that yours is, too. Even if you don’t have living space in your basement, dampness means mold (which can ruin anything stored there) and it also invites […]
Have you gotten your septic system pumped yet in this year? Private septic systems are the way rural suburbs like Lincoln, Weston, Concord, Carlisle, and other MetroWest communities deal with what goes out residential drain pipes. Even if you have no plans to sell, taking care of your septic system is one of the most […]
There are still only 12 houses on the market in Lincoln. That is extraordinarily low inventory, which has meant higher than expected offer prices for those houses that have come onto the market this spring. There is so little on the market, and what there is makes new listings look SO GOOD, but it is […]
