Susan Condrick has draws on her background in history to sell homes in and around the Belmont/Cambridge market. She pores over the details of a home while she’s walking through, listening to the owners’ stories, and often researching building permits, the local Historical Society and other sources to knit a narrative together. She says the stories help connect prospective buyers to the property for many of the same reasons the sellers originally did. This year, the approach helped her list a couple of large historic Cambridge homes.

Surprises are common in complex construction projects, but it’s not every day of the week that they come in the form of a centuries-old shipwreck buried beneath an office tower site.

Michael Carucci has had a long and storied career in Boston’s ultra-luxury real estate market, and he said he’ll never retire. He’s had a lot of success and taken his share of shots on his way from growing up in public housing in Somerville to his home overlooking Boston’s Public Gardens in the Four Seasons. Today, he and his team broker fewer than 25 deals a year, but they’re all multimillion-dollar properties.
