The Santana Properties Team began in Cambridge in 2009, when two of the area’s top Realtors, Hudson and Lisa Santana, joined forces. They wanted to create something extraordinary in Cambridge, Somerville and Boston real estate: a professional team of realtors with a unique combination of experience, market knowledge, and an unexpected level of client care. The office has grown with the addition of Todd Denman as a Listing Specialist, and with Buyer Specialists Matt Slowik, Victoria Goodman, and Carlos Ramirez, yet the founding principles have remained the same. Every member of the Santana Properties team strives to bring enthusiasm, integrity, and fun to the home buying process all the while being incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and possessing a love for all things Real Estate.
