Founder and CEO Nick Warren welcomes all the new Boston residents with some tips for becoming acquainted with their new city. He also shares advice for both buyers and sellers as we enter into the traditionally busy autumn market.

With the influx of new residents from Sept 1 (the biggest move-in day in Boston), what advice would you give to a new Boston resident?

The fall is my favorite season in Boston.  The heat and humidity of the summer begins to go away leading to those beautiful, crisp New England fall days that everyone loves.  Boston is a very active city so I’d suggest getting out on foot and doing some exploring. One of my favorite things to do during the fall is to go for a walk or run along our beautiful esplanade which is part of

Founder and CEO Nick Warren takes a look at Boston's South End and the changes he has seen in the neighborhood's real estate market over the past 10 years. He also discusses the exciting Ink Block development and new developments like 7INK, a proposed co-living space coming to the neighborhood.

How have you seen the real estate market in South End, typically one of Boston’s hottest, change over the years?

When I started in the business back in 2006, the South End had already gone through a major gentrification over the previous 10-20 years.  Since 2006, we have seen the South End continue this process and rise to become one of the most in demand, and expensive neighborhoods in Boston, especially over the last 4-5 years.  In fact, the average

The project would be Boston’s first major co-living development, emphasizing communal living.

Founder and CEO Nick Warren talks about some exciting new developments coming soon to the Boston area. He also dives into trends he is seeing in the marketplace and what you can expect this summer in the Boston real estate market. 

 

Summertime opportunities

Summer is traditionally one of the slowest seasons for Boston real estate.  Due to our seemingly never-ending winters, New Englanders generally put their search on hold between Memorial Day and Labor Day and hit the beach or the mountains instead.  I predict that we will see normal seasonal adjustments in both new listings and sold transactions this year. With that said, the summer can be a great time for a buyer to put a deal together due to less competition.  There will naturally be

Founder and CEO Nick Warren discusses how he got into the Boston real estate market over ten years ago and some of the secrets to success that have helped him build his brokerage to one of the top in Boston. 

I always knew I wanted to be in the real estate business.  I had been studying the investment and development side of the business since I was 12, reading whatever books about the subject that I could get my hands on (instead of doing homework). I went for my real estate license while I was still in college so that, when I graduated in 2006, I’d be able to start buying and selling my own properties - saving myself commissions.  After graduating, I began working as a real estate agent at a small firm on Newbury Street here in Boston.  I
