Dear Home Buyer,
Depending on the time of day a commute from Waltham to Winchester can be as low as 25 minutes or approx 10 miles. If you do not have a vehicle then the MBTA Commuter Rail is an option for you too. Please contact me if you need more information.... more
I would be very careful when considering any of the condos at Parkview. Some of the units have been redone and look nice for sure, and the prices are obviously very appealing but please get a buyer agent to represent your best interests and perform due diligence in researching the history of the building, condo association, etc. I am happy to provide more specifics if you would like to contact me directly. Best of luck.... more

I'm very familiar with the complex and the area and am happy to pass along a comparative market analysis at no cost and no hassle to you.

In the future, make sure your agent asks the listing agent if all bedrooms conform.... more
