We have the Celtics, Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins. All of our major league sports teams are simply awesome. It’s one more reason to live in New England. Today was the Bruins Stanley Cup parade and rally. It’s been 39 years since the last Stanley Cup win so it’s little surprise that more than 1 million people turned out for today’s event. Watch some footage and see some pictures below.
June 8, 2011 – On a beautiful Wednesday morning, RE/MAX Prestige sponsored the “Soar with the Wind” event at Dutile Elementary School in Billerica, Massachusetts. The event, occurring on the field next to the school, starred the RE/MAX balloon in front of hundreds of students, giving rides, and letting students and teachers participate in the set-up and take-down of the balloon. The students, ranging from first to fifth grade, were ecstatic at the opportunity to see a hot air balloon and help as much as possible. As the balloon gave its final ride, the students gathered in a balloon-shaped oval and chanted their school song in celebration for the RE/MAX balloon.
After the hour of balloon rides, the pilots visited some of the students in their classrooms to hear questions about their experiences with RE/MAX and hot air balloons. Below is a clip from pilot Chris Mooney’s visit to a fourth grade classroom. For pictures from the event, visit www.facebook.com/MYREMAX.
On June 6th, MassDevelopment, in cooperation with Transformations, Inc., broke ground on a new sustainable development in Devens, Mass. The overall goal is to provide affordable, yet sustainable housing for residents of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The development, known as the Devens Green Housing Project, will be comprised of eight homes that will generate as much energy as they use, while refuting the common belief that eco-friendly homes are only exclusive to those with deep pockets.
R. Carter Scott, President of Transformations, Inc., the developers of the subdivision, spoke first at the groundbreaking. He began by saying that the true economic drivers that have fueled the take-off of zero-energy developments were the raising of the tax credit for solar energy from $2,000 to $14,000 and the lowering of the price of PVC cells (otherwise known as solar cells). These two factors were crucial in minimizing the costs so that zero-energy homes are “not just for the exclusive.” Mr. Scott also called upon the whole country, developers and homeowners, to look at this development as an example of what should be done throughout the nation.
Marty Jones, the newly appointed President and CEO of MassDevelopment, also spoke at the ceremony, celebrating the cooperation between local, state, and federal forces, including Governor Deval Patrick’s Solar Energy Committee, to which Mr. Scott contributes. In looking forward, Ms. Jones hopes that the Devens Green Housing Project serves as a model for fellow communities in the northeast to follow. She went on to state that in an economy such as this, creating both homes and jobs is an important task–one which this project executes impressively. She also stated that the overall goal of the project is to bring economic development and sustainable housing to the Devens community and that this process was replicated exponentially in the future. For a glimpse at what was said, please view the video below.
This is the first of hopefully many more Zero-Energy developments developed by MassDevelopment, a state-funded organization that “works with businesses, nonprofits, financial institutions, and communities to stimulate economic growth across the Commonwealth.”

Today marked the first official broker open house to announce the new condo development at The Homes at Fort Hill in Lowell, MA. The property is a historic building that is being restored to it’s original glory. Agents from all over attended today’s event and the developer/builder beamed with pride as he explained all the amazing details about the property including the 200 year old oak tree in the common yard and the property’s placement in the historical register. This builder has an amazing reputation and the listing team (Team Bisson from Pelham, NH) did an incredible job at drawing agents to attend this open house. Maybe it was the aggressive property pricing, or perhaps the gorgeous finishes in the model property, or maybe it was the nice weather and great food and company at today’s open house…but if the incredible agent turn out at today’s event is any indicator of the level of interest in these new condos….well, I guess all I can say is you better hurry up because these condos will not last.
