Matterport Photography Available in Boston

We recently got our Matterport Camera a few months ago and I am amazed with the product and the final images it produces. This camera takes 360 degree images and turns them into an immersive 3D rendering of interior spaces. Personally, I am not a fan of traditional virtual tours, where you click on a room and just spin in circles and look up and down. This technology is more of a “google street view” for interiors. you can actually “walk around” and explore the home without even physically going there. it also allows you to rotate the entire floor-plan and view the home in the “dollhouse view” where you can figure out the flow and the layout while having the option to go back to a particular room by clicking on the space. it’s quite amazing and this is definitely the future of real estate marketing.

Amazing Rental at the Belvedere. $15,000 a month just oozes luxury

I can’t believe after being in the real estate game for 7 years, I have never been in the Belvedere. This has to be one of the most posh and luxurious buildings in Boston. I took some pics for this particular spot and the views are amazing. Many people dream off city skyline or Charles River views, but I would take these any day of the week. Check them out.

Memorial Day Charles River Boat Ride

After a pretty dismal weekend, Memorial Day turned out to be a beautiful day. I was happy to get a message from my friend asking if I wanted to go on his boat for a little cruise from the harbor to the Charles. I’ve actually never been through the lock system so it was a bit of a treat to do both.

Here are a few of the pics I took.

One of the Best Lofts in Boston!! Right on Winthrop Square

One Of a Kind Loft in Charlestown

 

If you are looking for a one of a kind loft in Boston, you have come to the right place. I shot this amazing loft yesterday and immediately fell in love. The exposed beams, the reclaimed pine floors, the open layout and the attention to detail, all make this one of my top 10 favorite homes in Boston. This is one of those places that will make you move to Charlestown even if you weren’t considering it before.

The History of this building is also absolutely amazing. This was the old training field school which was relocated across the street and overlooks the field it was once situated. A Bit of the History can be read here, and the park used to be an old training field for colonial militia.

The bottom line is someone I know needs to buy this!!  It’s 2200sf. 3 beds, 2.5 baths  and an office. The bedrooms are huge and the layout is perfect. The bedroom has views of the city and of the masts of the US Constitution.

Price… 1.2 Million

Here are the pics, and if you know someone who is looking for something like this, Give me a call.

Latest Photo Shoot… Comm Ave 2.5 bed in Allston

Today I went to Allston to Shoot a great 2.5/3 bed right on Comm Ave. It was in my old stomping grounds and brought back some great memories of the year and a half I lived in the area. This was a large unit all on one level and had a really nice open layout. The living room was large and the dining room is huge, big enough to turn into a legitimate 3rd bedroom if you want. The kitchen is renovated and has plenty of space to make it a fully functional eat in kitchen as well. The hallways add to the spaciousness and creates a nice flow to all the rooms in the condo. I was told the square footage was around 1200sf and the price will be in the neighborhood of $450k, but I can confirm that at a later time.

Here are the Pics.
