This happened a few weeks ago, but still worth talking about. Picture 180 real estate agents from downtown, Wellesley, Arlington, Newton, Weston Cambridge and Brookline. In town cars, Mercedes buses and on foot. Give them a chance to tour eight phenomenal properties in Beacon Hill, Back Bay and the South End – from $1.8M to $6.3M – and you have a wonderfully dynamic mix of properties and personalities. Ken Tutunjian was the creative director of the tour and Jeffrey Heighton was the Beacon Hill office host.
And I was transportation director, go figure. You try coordinating six vehicles picking up and dropping off 180 agents over three hours at eight different addresses who were all hungry and needed restrooms by 11AM. Amazingly, the tour was a smashing success.
The goal was to group some of our best luxury properties so that a broad assortment of agents from downtown and the near metro west burbs could see a remarkable representation of downtown luxury inventory. Transport them in luxury, arm them with pertinent information, give them guided tours of each home and of course, provide a sumptuous luncheon at Smith & Wollensky’s sponsored by Boston.
My personal favorite was 129 Charles Street. It was the only single family residence on Charles Street. What a surprise! A totally reworked interior, very modern, very open and unbelievably sophisticated – all inside a very traditional Charles Street brick exterior. $4.75M
