Letter from the Broker

DON’T LOWER YOUR RENTS.

DON’T LOWER YOUR RENTS. Shocking to hear from your broker who’s trying to rent your apartments, right?  Truth is, for most brokerage companies, this is the default answer when a unit isn’t renting. Problem is that most of the time it just isn’t the reason why the unit isn’t moving.  I will preface this by saying there are indeed times when you need to adjust pricing. There’s no denying that.

Ganko Ittetsu Ramen

Those of you who know, know. This is, in our humble-yet-very-staunch opinion, the best bowl of ramen you can get your face into in and around the City of Boston.

@ The Brynx

So we’ve been doing this for a minute now. Going to new construction, seeing different styles and finishes and some get us going and some are just kinda “meh”. Let’s talk about The Brynx for a second because “meh” is not a word you’re going to read anymore in this “Inside Look” At The Brynx, you’re gonna get the old with the new. Those of us who love the “old Boston style” brownstone, brick building charm will be uber satisfied along with those who are looking for the modern, luxury flair that we’re seeing pop up all around us. The…
