canton ma real estate: Yes - Your Buyer Agent Can Show You Foreclosure Listings - 03/21/13 12:23 PM
Many first time buyers come to me very excited to look at foreclosures.  They're willing to put in some time and elbow grease to fix up a property if they can get a pretty good deal on it to start with.  They've heard there are a number of foreclosure properties.  
One of their first questions to me is....can you show me foreclosures?
Of course, as your buyer agent I can certainly show you foreclosures.  
However, there may not be as many foreclosures as you think there are - and many of them may not be suitable for you.

canton ma real estate: Cinderella - Now Appearing in Canton MA - 01/28/13 08:15 PM
That's right.....you don't need to go to Disneyworld to see Cinderella!  She will be appearing right here in Canton MA this weekend.   Last week I wrote about Canton's JFK Elementary School's production of Mything Links.  This week, it is time for the Dean S. Luce Elementary School's production of Cinderella.    
While each of the schools does a great job with their plays, the Luce School Play will always hold a special place in my heart because for six years I ran the play as the parent coordinator (a/k/a the producer), working alongside a very talented and dedicated director.  It was definitely a labor … (8 comments)
