New Years Resolution? Make a Home Resolution This Year and Every Year! This past weekend, we updated our Seller’s Guide and it reminded us how vital it is to regularly update your home. Every year, you should make an update; a #HomeResolution. This is not a repair, or maintenance! This is about keeping your home […]
Simple, thorough vacuuming helps hot water baseboard heat more efficiently and you breathe easy. Many homes in the Boston area are heated with hot water baseboard radiators. Some houses were converted from steam radiators, as their popularity faded in the mid-20th Century and hot water baseboard stole the spotlight by being more discrete. We’ve heard […]
After comprehensive community collaboration, we will undertake to (re)build and pay for an innovative and attractive $94.9M preK-8 Lincoln Pubic School, meaning a 17-19% increased property tax bill. Property value impact cannot be forecast; it was a decision the town needed to make without market speculation. The project makes it EVEN MORE important to use […]
Our analysis revealed that gains made over 2017 seemed to firm up in nearly all price brackets this year. What is the historic context for our current strong seller’s market in Lincoln? Here’s our sneak-peek look at the year in review. We’re also interested in what Lincoln looks like when compared to other neighboring towns […]

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!
