Spectacular New Construction Condominiums At 35 Farragut Road

People have been calling me lately about the new Gregg Donovan built condominiums at 35 Farragut Road in South Boston.

"How Many, How Much, How Big, When Are They Going To Be Finished." Even Joyce Lebedew called offering her expertise,

and assistance. Now you know I'm in trouble. Actually, the buildout will mirror the Edson On First project, and Joyce has furnished

me with a key to the model unit. The building will consist of 2, two bedroom, two bath flats (2100sf) with direct elevator service, and a

three bedroom, three and half bath penthouse duplex (2900sf) with two roof decks, and two garage parking. All three of these special homes

 will have deeded storage rooms in the basement. They are priced from $1.399 million to $2.199 million. Please 

contact me for a private tour of this property. March 2018 completion.

    Milton Academy

    As I embark on my new campaign in Milton, I wanted to remind everyone that some of the best years of my career were at the Coldwell Banker "Dewolfe" office at 17 Canton Avenue. I was the top associate there in both 2003 and 2006, and worked with a lot of great people, many of whom are still there at the 60 Adams Street location. Perry DiNatale Realty is a private, elite brokerage with infinite knowledge of the Town of Milton. Pictured above is Wigglesworth Hall at Milton Academy on Centre Street, where I studied as a child, and the adjacent Strauss Building.

      10 Damrell Street is Sold

      I am pleased to announce that I sold the two story brick warehouse at 10 Damrell Street in South Boston last month for $4.2 million to a Boston based real estate developer. GF IMPORTING had sold the property to the Mansour Family nearly forty years ago for under $200,000. They used the warehouse for their own importing business until 2004, before scaling back the family business.

                PERRY DINATALE BOSTON.COM FEATURE ARTICLE

                This month, I was interviewed by boston.com about my billboards. Read the article below:

                On a busy stretch of West Broadway, you couldn't miss it:

                "I'm short and fat. How about you?"

                The billboard, which was located right above Rondo's Sub Shop last year, was an attention-grabber, but somewhat cryptic in its message. Then, about six months later, a new billboard replaced it. This one had an image of a mid-rise building that read:

                "You'll like it on top."

                This one was easier to understand, but certainly tongue-in-cheek.

                Both were the work of Perry DiNatale, a 53-year-old real estate broker. The Southie native and father of two young boys has seen the neighborhood completely change over the last 50 years, and realized that with a changing and expanding market, he needed new ways to advertise his business.

                That's why about five years ago, he started buying billboard advertisements. Since then, he's had more than a dozen signs sprinkled around South Boston and the waterfront. As for the "short and fat" declaration, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision.

                "It was how I was feeling about myself at that time. I just threw it up there," DiNatale said. "Normally realtors are bragging in ads like, 'I'm No.1.' It's just how I was feeling that day. I was hoping to get people's attention."

                At 5'5?, he considers himself a short guy, but at 165 pounds, DiNatale is hardly fat. Still, his boards have drawn a mix of shock and laughter from the neighborhood--and potential clients. Even though he says he's been in business for 20 years and handled more than 1,000 real estate transactions, five years of those large ads earned him the reputation of being called the "broker on billboards."

                "This is the best board I had. I sold four houses from this billboard," DiNatale says. "People order 'small Italian' sandwiches at sub shops. This was in reference to my small stature and Italian heritage. ?I'll take the 'Small Italian' to sell my house." --Perry DiNatale

                This billboard replaced the notorious "short and fat" ad. --Melissa Malamut

                "I've seen South Boston change in front of my eyes. I'm in shock," DiNatale said. "The prices have just blown me away. They keep going up and people keep paying it."

                That's why DiNatale still has two billboards out around town, even in an ever-changing media and advertising landscape. The current displays are more tame than his wilder advertisements, and DiNatale says that he just wanted a new campaign.

                "One says 'Perry sold my house' and the other says, "Perry sold my house, too," he said. "It's been less successful at bringing in the clients."

                For now, DiNatale is going to stick with these more conservative displays to see how it goes.

                "This is all stuff I just think of in my crazy head," he said.

                  MILLION DOLLAR SALES IN SOUTH BOSTON

                  The first week of April was a busy one for me, as I represented two buyers who closed on units at the fabled 945 East Broadway development.

                  Retired Rosscommon Health Care executive, Robert Nolan, purchased Unit 9, a 2200sf penthouse featuring three bedrooms, three baths, direct elevator access, and two garage spaces for $1.3 million.

                  Unit 4 was purchased by an insurance executive and his wife, who are moving into the "Hood" from Milton Ma. Unit 4, a Philadelphia Style three bedroom, three bath condominium also has elevator access and two car garage parking. It went for $1.2 million. Both parties will be moving into their new digs in May.
