Bostoniano's new real estate columnist, Dino Confalone.

This past spring, we could classify the real estate market as a “beast” and it truly was not for everyone. However, with historic low interest rates and steady appreciation, ...

After all, she spent two years working on her memoir at home in Cambridge, finding time to write whenever she wasn’t occupied with her duties as a full-time mom of three, including caring for her eldest son, who has autism ...
