Gloucester, MA 01931
We have sold two houses and bought two others with the help of Margaret over the course of 13 years. We hope to never move again but if the need arises we wouldn’t think of using any other agent. Ms Belmonte is very knowledgeable about the North Shore cities and towns and goes above and beyond for her customers on a regular basis even finding last minute financing for one of our buyers when there original lender backed out. She is a true professional!

For its compact size, Cape Ann is surprisingly diverse, and Gloucester’s many “towns within a town” express the many local personalities. Settled in 1623 and serving as home to America’s oldest seaport Gloucester, with one of the finest and fairest harbors in Massachusetts, remains among the busiest of fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard.
Nestled within Gloucester are the quaint villages of Lanesville, Annisquam and Magnolia. Located between Ipswich Bay and the historic woods of Dogtown, Lanesville, with its proximity to abundant, cod-filled waters and granite quarrying, rose to prominence during the 1800’s. Today, many local artists call the area home and gather for such annual events as the Lanesville Music Festival and Art in Lanesville exhibition. Annisquam, an early fishing and shipbuilding center, is located just minutes off scenic route 127 and boasts the Annisquam Harbor Light Station, established in 1801, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Just above Manchester lies charming Magnolia, home to Hammond Castle Museum.
