I was wondering if anyone can recommend a realtor in this area. I have a friend (first time buyer) who is looking to buy either a condo or multi-family house in the Cambridge/Arlington/Somerville area.
I can't recommend anyone but she should try the cambridgefamilies yahoo group this topic comes up a lot.
We're out in MetroWest so we don't have any recommendations, but the way we found ours was going to open houses and seeing how we liked the realtors.
We have a family member who does RE in Cambridge and Boston. He specializes in multifamilies and foreclosure listings.
His contact information is

He works for William Raveis
