Who Is Rumored To Be Taking The Old Joe’s American Space?

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

When people think of a great martini bar in Chestnut Hill, what do they think of?

1. Legal Seafood? NO

2. Aquitaine? NO…well maybe but still NO

3. Capital Grille? Nope

We will give you one more guess…………Ok, give up?  The answer is:

Met Bar

The Metropolitan Club, the sexy Bar and Grille located in Chestnut Hill, MA.  The wildly popular, lounge style, martini bar is well know for its delicious infused vodka’s and cocktail libations.  One look at the drink and food menu, one can see why this concept will match, if not exceed the excitement and popularity it has brought to Chestnut Hill and Newton, MA. We welcome The Met Bar to the neighborhood and hope  the Back Bay Associations do not give them too hard a time with their licensing and zoning.

Just a small sampling of the deliciousness patrons can expect when dining at The Met:

20 Brimmer Street Auction Results – SHOCKER

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

According to two very reliable sources (NOT in the brokerage community), and close friends of Luxury Residential Group, have told us that the Auction at 20 Brimmer Street was unsuccessful and failed to meet the minimum set forth prior to auction day. There were bidders that attended but no one stepped forward with a bid of $4,975,000+5% buyers premium or greater.  This is a total SHOCKER to the Boston Real Estate and brokerage community as the auction was highly publicized and well received by the public.

We feel that the developer would have been better off with an absolute auction format rather than setting a reserve.  This would have presented the TRUE value of the property.  Unfortunately, 20 Brimmer is now valued at, or below the $4,975,000 reserve price point.  A risk the developer was willing to take, but did not anticipate happening.

UPDATE: The home is now currently priced at $4,975,000.  If you are interested in receiving more information or to set up a private tour, please feel free to email us at or call Joshua Golden(Buyer Agent) at (617) 233-5800.

The Clarendon Boston Going All Rental Rumor is COMPLETELY UNTRUE

Clarendon Living Room

Clarendon Living Room

At Luxury Residential Group, we think it is essential that our clients are in the know when it comes to rumors regarding luxury buildings they may be thinking about purchasing in.  The latest rumor was involving The Clarendon, a new luxury high rise condo development in the heart of the Back Bay and steps to The South End in Boston. It was rumored that the property was going to be sold and made into an all rental project.  Through our sources, we have confirmed that this rumor is unequivically UNTRUE.  Construction and closings are moving along as scheduled (First quarter 2010) and buyers should have confidence moving forward. Should anything change, which we do not anticipate happening, our readers will be the first to know.

Sarah Palin Moving To Rhode Island???

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009


Some people may “Also” find this not that interesting, some may love it, either way, it is something to talk about. There is a rumor(Rumor – an opinion put out there with no real source) that Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska may be moving to Rhode Island to settle down. 

Now, what will this do for Rhode Island and maybe even Massachusetts Real Estate should it happen? Absolutely nothing what so ever, just thought our readers would find the rumor to be interesting. It will however put Rhode Island on the map for a hot second should it happen.
