Estate Realty

You’re selling your mansion. You have antiques, masterpieces and grandma’s coffee table, which you never really liked. What to do. Husband-and-wife team Maggie and Jim Hobbes are at your service. The couple excels at managing the sale of... well, everything. From pricing to merchandising to moving, Hunt Estate Sales takes much of the stress away from a move.

Off Market

Sylvia Westphal is really good at researching. The former Wall Street Journal reporter, who has a PhD in genetics, spent her career reporting in-depth stories. That is, until she discovered her love for real estate. She’s launched The Private List, which specializes in ultraluxury real estate and connects homeowners with top real estate agents and other high-end service providers. Through a suite of concierge services, Westphal and her team can advise on staging or revamping a home prior to placing it on the market, and buyers can count on her to curate the perfect team of experts to remodel or decorate their new digs.

Insider tip Westphal plans to kick off a series of real estate events and panel discussions.

The lobby at The Revolution Hotel.

Home Away from Home

1200 Soldiers Field Road

Call it the little train that could: The Revolution Hotel recently hauled in a top award as one of the country’s finest. Nestled in the South End, the boutique hotel indeed sets itself apart with impeccable design (credit Adam and Company for that) and vision from its owner, Bruce Percelay, founder of the Mount Vernon Company. Inspired by Boston’s revolutionary spirit, the hotel is filled with cool, quirky and, make no mistake, luxe details.

Insider tip Dine at the hotel restaurant, Cósmica Mexican Eatery & Bar, the newest culinary hit from the team behind The Beehive and Beat Brew Hall.
