After a listing appointment with a client on Beacon Hill in Boston we were able to quickly dash over to the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum with the hopes of getting a photo for a blog post. Unfortunately no photos are allowed so I had to go with a hard to get outside shot. We took a short tour of the spectacular museum. Had an excellent late lunch at Sofra in Cambridge, before returning to our office in Beverly, MA.
On another day we were able to get away from the office and experience real estate as potential buyers. We went to look at properties on Peaks Island in Portland Maine. We were met at the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal by our Portland area Coldwell Banker agent Mike Bunting. He came with three bikes. We looked at many properties and he gave us a comprehensive tour of the island on bicycles. We were stopped once by four police officers at one property where I was sure we had set off an alarm, were a little lost taking a shortcut through the center of the island, think I had a dog at my tail when I was briefly separated from the group and had time to stop at the Umbrella Cover Museum, what a hoot, before getting back on the ferry to return home. John & Mike are college alum of Lyndon State College in Vermont. Mike is an excellent top producing agent serving the Greater Portland Maine area. What a fantastic tour!
