Relocating to Boston

Moving from a small town or suburb to Boston can be an intimidating proposition!

I serve as a dedicated Boston relocation expert who uses in-depth knowledge of Boston and the surrounding areas, such as Cambridge and Somerville, to make your overall move a seamless and stress free experience.

I know you want to find the right property in the perfect neighborhood as quickly as possible and for the lowest price. I specialize in Boston’s prime neighborhoods including: Back Bay, Beacon Hill, West End, South End, Waterfront, North End, Downtown, The Fenway, the Seaport District, the Leather District, Chinatown, and Midtown. I also specialize in Greater Boston’s Brookline, Allston, Brighton, Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Watertown, Belmont, and Newton.

When you arrive, I would be more than happy pick you up from the airport or your hotel and take the time to show you the city. I will spend all the time necessary to familiarize you with the neighborhoods and properties you view and will be right beside you every step of the way until I find you the right place.

The Relocating Guide:

Research before you move. It’s important to understand the culture you’re joining. Do research online and find out about the Boston school systems, the various unique neighborhoods, public parking, weather, public transportation, and laws that are native to Boston and Greater Boston. If you can, visit! Visiting has proved invaluable before moving. Try to connect with someone who’s lived there before such as a friend or family member.

Have a plan. There are a lot of steps to go through before you start packing the moving truck. Find housing before you leave, or at least know where you’ll stay while you look for a home. Never sign a lease on an apartment that you haven’t seen. If you can’t get there, find a friend or an employer to check for you. Have a job waiting for you, or if that’s not possible, know what you’ll do for money in the first few weeks of living there. Try to line up things like driver’s licenses, car insurance, renter’s insurance, and parking passes ahead of time as well.

Get involved. Meeting people in a new city such as Boston can be daunting. Don’t expect the neighbors to knock your door down with a casserole when you arrive: city life is often too noisy and hectic. Take the initiative. If there are things you liked to do in your town, find ways to do those things in the city. Try new things. Volunteer. Big cities offer so many opportunities to engage other people, so find what you like.

Mind your wallet. City life is expensive. Everything costs more: food, insurance, clothes, rent. There are also a lot more ways to get ripped off, whether legally or criminally. Be careful how you spend, and know where your money is going.
