Star Rating - 12/18/2014
Quincy is a seaside community and has an approximate population of 90,000 people. Settled by Myles Standish and Captain Wollaston and established as a township in 1620,Quincy is the 8th largest city in Massachusetts.
Quincy was the home of 2 US Presidents John Quincy Adams and John Adams. Statesman John Hancock also was born on Quincy.

A seaside community with natural resources such as fishing and lumber. Granite was quarried and led to the creation of the first commercial railroad in the US. Granite Rail. Soon shipbuilding was a major economic driver employing thousands during WWII and beyond.

Contemporary Quincy is a diverse community with a changing mix of races. Home values have increased 4 fold over the decades and is considered a highly valued suburb by virtue of its proximity 5 miles to Boston. Transportation options unlike any other surrounding town include The T, Commuter Rail and major highways all running through
I am proud to say I was born and raised in Quincy Massachusetts and currently work as a Realtor of Century 21 Abigail Adams Agency, my familys run business in Quincy for over 35 years.
