About Cambridge

Cambridge MA, sitting right across the Charles River from Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and Allston is known as the home of Harvard University and MIT, but it is far more varied than that. It sits right across the Charles River from Boston. The type of real estate you can find in Cambridge runs from student rental/investment condos to large houses dating back to the 18th century, particularly around Harvard. The demographic is very varied, running from blue-collar, to student, to tech and pharma professionals to academic personnel.
