Jamaica Plain, also known as JP, was founded by Boston puritans seeking farmland south of the city. In the 19th century, Jamaica Plain became one of the first streetcar suburbs in America. JP is one of the greenest neighborhoods in the city of Boston. It is home to many of the Emerald Necklace parks, Olmsted Park, Jamaica Pond, Franklin Park, and the Arnold Arboretum. This diverse area attracts young families, academics, doctors, political activists, artists, and an LGBT community.
Jamaica Plain Buyer Testimonial:
We really can’t say enough about how great it was to work with Ariel Szabo when we were looking to sell our South End loft and buy a house in Jamaica Plain. In our 40 years of marriage we have bought and sold six properties. Ariel is the first realtor we have worked with whom we would give a five star rating.Ariel listened carefully to what we were looking for in a new home (how refreshing!) and she listened carefully to what we thought the selling points of our loft were. Ariel knew so much more not only about the Boston condo market than we did but also how to find a home in a sellers market. It can be daunting! She found us our home in Jamaica Plain, got us into the home for a viewing and helped us to make an offer all before it was listed! Extraordinary!We quickly learned that when there was a strategy decision to be made, our best choice was to ask for her opinion and to take her advice. We are convinced that she enabled us to get the best price for our loft and to negotiate the best deal on our new home.We give the highest marks to Ariel Szabo for her professionalism, expertise, and honesty.”- Elizabeth
