Meet Micéal Chamberlain of Historic Homes in Newton Centre

Today we’d like to introduce you to Micéal Chamberlain.

Micéal, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born in Ireland and came to this country with my sister at age 10 to live with my aunt and uncle in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After graduating from college, I worked for the Boston Red Sox selling advertising and shortly thereafter was hired by the New England Patriots to work in marketing and sales. After 15 years at the Patriots, I was ready for a new challenge. Given my love for architecture, house renovation and marketing real estate seemed to be a natural choice. At that point I started Historic Homes, and we are enjoying our 28th year in business.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It is always stressful when one starts a new business. I went through a couple of years of not knowing where the next listing or buyer would come from. But with strong community roots and marketing background, we were able to build our brand and compete with the more established firms. The advent of the internet also helped as it leveled the playing field allowing information to be delivered instantaneously and worldwide.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Historic Homes – what should we know?
What makes us unique and separates us from other firms:

1. We specialize in a specific segment of the market (middle and upper end).
2. We negotiate the best possible price for our clients.
3. We are constantly looking for ways to create added value for our sellers and buyers.

Having lived in the communities we serve has been a great benefit as it has allowed us to build relationships with building and zoning officials, architects and attorneys all important players in the real estate process.

What keeps me focused and excited about our business is our commitment to do the very best for our clients. I get great satisfaction and enjoyment being able to place our buyers in a property that best fits their needs as well as making sure they’re investment is financially sound. As a broker/owner I feel we have a moral obligation to protect our clients.
