Coldwell Banker | Community Realtors
Our FEATURED AGENT series will be posted every Monday giving us the opportunity to share an indepth look at each agent in our company.  First, let's start with a quick look at Coldwell Banker Upton-Massamont as a company.

As a locally owned company with national affiliation we offer the best of both worlds.  Local knowledge and national exposure with the most powerful real estate brand in the world.  Our full time staffs of REALTORS are long standing residents of the area and are familiar with the real estate market and its current condition, which can differ from town to town.  We offer professional, experienced service both in Buyer Agency, Seller Agency and we handle long and short term rentals. 

 Our three office locations serve the highly desirable region of Western Massachusetts, know as The Pioneer Valley.  It is an area rich in history and quality of life.  The combination of arts, education and natural beauty of this vacation destination region make it perfect for both primary and secondary homes.  Within the region there are 5 renowned colleges and many private secondary schools.  Many of the towns have vibrant downtowns, preserving their history and tradition while incorporating new ambiances, music venues and an array of restaurants.  An excellent highway system both north and south (Interstate 91) and east and west (Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 2) conveniently links the area to major cities and airports throughout New England.

A Valley Gem

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art
The Pioneer Valley is fortunate to have this museum dedicated to inspire, especially in children and their families, an appreciation for and an understanding of the art of the picture book. The Museum offers programs and workshops throughout the year that your family may well enjoy. 
While checking out their website I found special exhibitions, programs, events even projects to download.  This website also links to The Official Eric Carle website offering videos, newsletters and resources to help the young artist and writers alike. 
Great job!  Don't let the summer go by without getting your family to Amherst, MA to enjoy this valley gem!
