Praise Shadows

We’ve been waiting to feature Praise Shadow’s on our Kingston Local for quite some time. Matter of fact, we had something queued up last year but, well, life, the pandemic and a zillion other things got in the way! Nevertheless, we persevere and are so excited to chat with you about this incredible art gallery in Brookline’s Coolidge Corner! Praise Shadows is located right on Harvard St. near the intersection of Babcock St. It’s clean, quaint and wonderful showcasing a rotating gallery with a particular focus on emerging or mid-career artists. They also have a retail space for art books…

Letter From the Broker- 2021 EOY Edition

Inside Look

@ The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s

Right off the bat, we’ll let you know that this development is a BEAST. Comprising over 550 total apartments across four buildings, The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s feels less of an apartment complex and is more reminiscent of a small European village. Scanning the grounds, you’ll find things you just won’t see anywhere else in Boston. The Fatima Shrine still rests near the entry welcoming you in as you wind up the driveway. To the west is a cloister garden and walking grounds. You can really feel the history here.  The original Monastery constructed in 1906, now dubbed Overlook Landmark, has…
