No more home delivery is an ode to my father, John Lawfer and a passion he shared with me. One of my first memories about real estate wasn’t real estate at all, certainly not in my 8 year old head.  I was just out working in the middle of the night with my Dad.  He was a home delivery milkman.  This was a different time and people left their doors open for us to come in and look in their refrigerator to see what they needed. Some people left notes in milk bottles out on the steps with what they wanted and I would run up to the back steps and pull the note and run breathlessly back to the truck to tell my Dad what they needed.  I would be handed milk, butter, cottage cheese, or whatever was needed.  I would run in to the folks house and carefully place the items in their refrigerator.  ...

Emerson Woods Milton Mass 02186 Just wanted to take a moment this morning to discuss Emerson Woods in Milton. Emerson Woods is one of the newer neighborhoods in Milton. Emerson Woods is comprised of an area just off of Canton Avenue. The largest landmark nearby by that people in town would know of is the Ulin Skating Rink.

This week I wanted to take a moment to discuss one of the most beloved neighborhoods in Milton. The neighborhood I am speaking of is The Columbines. The neighborhood that many people really enjoy owning homes in is the Columbine neighborhood.  This neigborhood appeals to many due to the fact that there are great homes of all styles in this area. People like the mature trees. A favorite in the area is the Shields Park and Playground where many youths in Milton have learned to play baseball.  Shields Park is roughly around 400 Eliot Street. Many city dwellers like access to the trolley either from the Capen Street stop, Eliot or Central Ave. This trolley takes your directly into the Ashmont Station for direct access to Boston.  A major draw to the Columbine Neighborhood is the fact that p...
