Nasuti, Corton Featured in Milford Daily News

Whitinsville agent Robyn Nasuti and Framingham Manager Ali Corton were featured in a Milford Daily News article Thursday about the housing market. 

Spring has sprung, but not for real estate market. Tight supplies crimp buyer

With the arrival of spring, residential real estate markets in MetroWest and Greater Milford would normally flower with new properties, something that typically lasts until July.

But this year the blooms don't exactly look lush.

A tight supply of available properties and sharp increase in prices have squeezed buyers into scaling back on what amenities they would like in a new home. Robyn Nasuti

Upton real estate agent Robyn Nasuti, of ERA Key Realty Services, said a robust spring market had been the only hope for buyers, and that isn’t exactly happening. 

“Compared to last year, I would say we are under where we were at this point,” Nasuti told the Daily News earlier this month, in terms of available inventory for sale. “Typically, by March we have between 10 and 12 properties ready to go on the market and even 15. Right now, we're between six and eight.” 

Despite the appeal of selling a home that has sharply appreciated in valiue, homeowners who are thinking about selling are not convinced by the available options, which are currently tagged with inflated prices themselves and don’t have the desired criteria.  

Nasuti said this cycle has forced sellers to stay...

Contemporary Spencer home on water's edge lists for $950,000

SPENCER — This 4,600-square-foot contemporary has lots of space for houseguests and entertaining as well as more than an acre of lush yard on the water’s edge of Thompson Pond.

The three-bedroom, 3½-bathroom lake home at 5 Nottingham Circle is listed with Donna Flannery with ERA Key Realty Services for $950,000.Donna Flannery

Flannery says this hard-to-find contemporary is “the ultimate haven” that’s big enough for entertaining yet intimate enough for quiet evenings alone.

“It’s a nice open first-floor plan. There is space for a home office on every level, and the basement is completely finished for an in-law or guests to have their own separate space that walks right out to the lake,” she said.

The home was built in 2000 on 1.06 acres with 100 feet of water frontage.

“It’s a wonderful great lake community,” homeowner Cindy Krackovic said. “We’ve been very fortunate to be living in our vacation home. From...

Eidinger-Taylor Named Business Leader of the Year

Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor

ERA Key President and COO Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor has been named "Family Business Leader of the Year" by the Worcester Business Journal. Below is what the Journal wrote about her.

Eidinger-Taylor keeps family values in real estate

Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor has sold more than 500 homes since she began her career with ERA Key Realty three decades ago. As the company grew, so did Eidinger-Taylor’s role: progressing from sales into managerial, regional, and then company leadership positions.

Eidinger-Taylor finally hit a ceiling five years ago when she was named president and chief operating officer of the entire operation, dedicating the organization to being a true family business.

“Under Cheryl, and the entire Taylor family's leadership, Key has continued to grow and impact the lives of all our sales professionals and their clients,” said Charles Hunt, executive vice president and COO of Hunt Real Estate Corp. in News York. “Cheryl leads with great vision and an exceptional focus on caring for everyone affiliated with us.”WBJ Call-out

Eidinger-Taylor’s governance proved pivotal throughout the coronavirus pandemic. While many industries came to a screeching halt, real estate exploded.

“When I look back, I think a lot of our success maneuvering through this pandemic has been because of sensitivity to everybody's needs,” she said. “In the long term, people made decisions...
