Summer Slide

Cape Ann Home

I hope everyone is starting off the summer wonderfully.  I have some great news……Interest rates continue to slide and people’s buying power has been greatly enhanced.  Also people can save money too!

If you currently own a home, and are paying 4.25% or more in interest, or have an adjustable rate mortgage, now is the time to get a rate in the high 3’s and fixed!

I am currently scheduling personalized refinance meetings at my CrossCountry Mortgage office at 180 Main Street in Gloucester next week.  Bring your current mortgage statement, and I will run your credit, debt to income and savings analysis for free.  That way we can find out how much you can save each month.  We also have NO CLOSING COSTS loans and we also use local Gloucester attorneys to help us close these transactions.

If you want to find out how much you can afford on…

Holy Cow!

Thank you to the Holy Cow!  I ordered 100 of their famous ice cream sandwiches for a school event last week and they could not have been more friendly and accommodating.

The children LOVED the treats and it certainly helped make their last day of school field day that much more special.  Who doesn’t love ice cream after all?


Shark Sighting Manchester by the Sea

Manchester: Beachgoers urged to be cautious in water after shark sighting

MANCHESTER — Visitors to this seaside town’s beaches are being warned that a large shark was sighted off the coast of House Island on Wednesday.

The notorious sea dweller was spotted by a man was fishing off his boat in the area. The uninhabited House Island is on the outskirts of Manchester Harbor, between Gales Point and Misery Island.

The fisherman later notified Harbormaster Brian Pike of the sighting. Interim Police Chief Todd Fitzgerald and Director of Parks and Recreation Cheryl Marshall were also notified.

There have been no other sightings since then. Manchester Police said this is the first shark report this year.

The Harbormaster’s Office will continue to monitor the situation and updates will be provided as they become available.

It is unknown what species of shark was swimming around the shore this week. Pike said Manchester typically sees basking and sand sharks. There have also been reports of great whites in the past.

In July 2017, a fisherman hooked an 8-foot juvenile great white off of Rockport.

“Wherever there are seals, there are typically sharks,” Pike said.

Residents are advised to use caution while swimming in the area, which is still permitted.

To report a shark sighting, call the Harbormaster’s Office at 978-526-7832 or the Police Department at 978-526-1212.

The Fishing Shack

Cape Ann Home


In 1916 there stood a fishing shack on Rocky Neck.  Despite the amazing view, there was nothing special about this shack. Many like it shared the same beautiful scenery, overlooking the outer harbor and what lies beyond. As far as fishing shacks go it was nondescript. But great things come from humble beginnings.
