North Shore Massachusetts Real Estate Market as seen from an outsider
I had another blogger that wanted to write about the North Shore Real Estate Market of Massachusetts . Though she seemed really nice, she was from Indonesia and apparently her grasp of the English language was not very strong. Still, the blog makes for some...

Serving Home Buyers and Seller on the North Shore of Massachusetts
Introduction

I have been a resident of the North Shore for most of my life. Born in Chicopee, MA,  I moved to Danvers in 1961.

After receiving a degree in Conservation Technology, I worked in Salem in the marine electronics industry before opening a retail store in 1978 - Armstrong Animals Pet Center. I successfully operated the store for 19 years, acquiring vast knowledge & experience in customer service and marketing. 

I received my real estate license in 2000, and  became one of the top 3 Realtors® in Salem by 2002. I was promoted to manager of the Salem office of Vernon A. Martin, Inc. Realtors in the fall of 2002.

Following in the steps of my grandmother, Lilienne Field, who was one of the most outstanding and respected Realtors® in Salem from the 1940's through 1978, I opened my own office, Armstrong Field Real Estate. Like my grandmother, my focus is on customer service.

Though I lived in Salem for over 30 years, in 2008 found a great deal on a bank owned home in North Beverly that was too good to pass up.
