Why We Love Western Massachusetts-The People

Stone buildingMarcia Brooks, agent with the Coldwell Banker Upton-Massamont REALTORS South Deerfield Office, offers a well shared opinion of the Pioneer Valley and why we love it here!

The Pioneer Valley is a hidden gem that has carefully and lovingly been polished over the past 40 years to reveal its' inner beauty.

SF Library

There is a wealth of resources to mine; Historic, Cultural, Recreational and Educational .....all available for the taking.

It is a preserved way of life that has been cherished for generations. Its' simplicity is both cultivated and progressive enough to stay on the cutting edge.

SuguringWe offer the original farm-to-table living.....which city dwellers relish.

While we might appear to be too far out in the country for some, we know otherwise.

It is an easy trek to Boston, New York, or points north and south whenever the mood strikes.But mostly, it is the people that live here--that bring it all together.  Whether it's festivals Winter Racethat celebrate the rivers, the hills, the libraries, the arts, the fruits of our labor,  or simply.....the four seasons.  It is a special way of life .... the spirit of a community and knowing your neighbor.

It is Americana at its best.
