*Owner: Associate Professor, a BU graduate and 15+-year resident of this neighborhood--it's a great area, both residential and convenient to downtown. I know almost everything about Boston and getting around, the best places to eat and shop, etc., so just ask if you have questions throughout your stay. I'd like to rent my place to a fellow academic while I'm away, and I'm looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and tidy person/couple who will be respectful tenants of the condo building.
