Oldest Historic Towns in Massachusetts

 It's no wonder, every time I travel, I find myself comparing the landscape, architecture, and feel to home. New England is bursting with charm, history, age, and most of all, roots; and that includes the people. Generations of folks rooted in their hometown right down to the family owned hardware store or donut shop where the 100-year-old floor boards creak and first-names are commonplace, create an energy, a vibe; it's palpable. Historic towns with historic homes and endless history will always be home to me. What town has more First Period homes than any other in the nation? That same town is on permenant exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. You know the one! Where are the oldest towns in Massachusetts?

President Betty Slatko!

Betty has been busy making the most of her term as President of the North Shore Association of Realtors. We couldn't have been more proud, seeing her at the lectern, before a packed house at the Salem Waterfront Hotel at the March Legislative member event. It was a day of important information, networking and support for private property rights.

Jay Ash, Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, spoke, told a few jokes, and gave us his perspective on the status of housing in the state and an inside view of plans for economic growth. He's actually a pretty funny, approachable guy! 

The event was a huge success and raised over $19,000 in support of the Realtor Political Action Committee"s (RPAC) mission to protect homeowners rights and support the goal of expanding homeownership for MA residents.

Betty is enjoying her presidency and we are enjoying seeing Betty serve her role with passion and gumption. Hail to the Cheif!
