Not too long ago, I had a couple years where Church Street in Somerville was my second home — I listed and sold I think eight places on this cute little Union Square street. So this week, my listing feels a bit like a homecoming. I have written another post on the backstory, which is kind of fun — if you want to check it out, here’s the link.
