Relax. It's Summer. We've Got you Covered.

Who wants to think about moving when it’s a beautiful beach day? This summer especially, you have to take advantage of the sunny warm days when you can.

So go! We insist.

When you have Steve McKenna and The Home Advantage Team for your real estate needs, you’re not just working with one real estate agent. You have a talented staff of professionals searching for homes on your behalf, processing the paperwork, facilitating negotiations, researching neighborhoods, promoting your home  - so you can dip your toes in the ocean or get a quick nine holes in before lunch.

We cover a broad market in the Greater Boston area, and we cater to the specific needs of our buyers and sellers – from Millennials to Boomers and everyone in between.

So go out and enjoy some local summer fun - check out Reservoir Beach in Arlington, Medford Boat Club, Walden Pond in Concord, Charles River in Watertown, or just relax in that hammock that's been calling your name since June.

Summer is fleeting, but we’re not.

As the #1 REALTOR® and #1 real estate team in Arlington Massachusetts for 30 years, we’ve got your real estate needs covered.

Three Truths and a Lie - Annie Kelly

Just when you think you know someone...

You may THINK we’re just a real estate team, but there’s more to us than meets the eye.

In case you missed it, we called out Mike Pallotta and Tracy Wallace on their three truths and a lie, and now we're going to see if Annie Kelly can dupe us into believing hers.

Can you guess the lie?

I am Annie Kelly and …

 

… I kissed the Blarney Stone.

… I met my husband in London, England.

… I am a six-time Bocci champion.

… I have been white water kayaking and hiking in the Alps.

Ponder that over your coffee, make your best guess, and head over to Three Truths and a Lie for the answer!
