A Victorian home at 140 Hartford Ave. East, Uxbridge, built around 1900 for the Whitin family, offers amenities rarely seen today, such as stained-glass windows, a wrap-around porch, a foyer with a grand stairway, window seats and lots of natural woodwork.

Valerie Cohen, a Realtor in the Framingham office, received a pin for 20 years of service during the recent annual meeting of The Realtor Association of Central Massachusetts.
Valerie has extensive experience with clients seeking to relocate and working with military personnel. She was named to the Circle of Achievement, which includes agents who have sold at least 45 units or total volume of at least $6 million, for each of the past several years.
She co-chairs the Framingham office’s charitable giving committee, which determines where funds from the ERA Key Realty Services Charitable Trust will be donated. She also regularly volunteers for charitable events sponsored by the Framingham office.
She is a graduate of Queensborough Community College of The City University of New York (CUNY). She has earned certifications as an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), a Cartus Network Referral Specialist (CNRS), a Military Relocation Professional (MRP) and a Distinctive Property Specialist (DPS). She is a member of the Realtor Association of Central Massachusetts (RACM), the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
“During her two decades of service, Valerie has not only become one of our top agents,” Framingham Manager Ali Corton said, “she has also shown a real commitment to community service. Whether she’s helping someone in the military find a home or volunteering at a charitable event, she always seems to be helping someone.”
ERA Key’s Framingham office recently donated $500 each to the Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton, and the Metrowest Symphony Orchestra and Family Promise Metrowest, both of Natick.
The $1,500 in donations were made through the ERA Key Realty Services Charitable Trust. Baypath Humane Society is dedicated to providing shelter, care, humane treatment and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals. The Metrowest Symphony Orchestra has been providing classical and pops concerts, using both professional and volunteer musicians, for the enjoyment of area residents since 1973. Family Promise Metrowest provides shelter, education and comprehensive support to families that are facing homelessness.
“With all the challenges faced locally in the tight and expensive housing market,” Framingham Manager Ali Corton said, “we are glad to support local agencies providing much-needed resources to our community’s most vulnerable people and pets.”
