Bushari Welcomes Tammi McElroy


We are happy to announce Tammi McElroy as the newest member of the Bushari Real Estate team. Tammi is an accomplished real estate professional whose career in the industry started in New York City in 2002. For over a decade she worked as a residential sales and rental agent, specializing in international relocations, at two of Manhattan’s top firms.

Tammi grew up in Boston before attending Hunter College in New York, where she double-majored and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Media Studies.

She is an avid reader, and if she is wearing headphones, she’s probably not listening to music but either an audiobook or podcast about real estate or professional development. Tammi also enjoys skiing and swing dancing.

Tammi is a member of the Greater Boston Association of Realtors and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board.

The Parsons – Coming Soon


The Brighton neighborhood has become a hotbed for suburban residential developments. While downtown Boston sees an influx of high-rise towers throughout the city, its surrounding suburbs have boomed with modern dwellings. Its location is ideal for those looking for residential or commercial properties cheaper than downtown, but still relatively close to job centers in the city. Credit for its boom can be given to the rise of commercial activity following New Balance’s footsteps into the area.  The Brighton neighborhood has since become a thriving hub of boutique businesses and residences flanked by lush green parks and gardens.

Amongst the exciting new developments underway in the neighborhood is The Parsons residences at 88-94 Parsons Street.



The multi-family project, which is now undergoing interior finishing, will bring four outstanding new town homes to a vibrant street in Brighton. The Parsons is comprised of 2+ bedroom, 3.5 bathroom residences with spacious, open layouts ranging from 1,600 to 1,700 square-feet. The residences are complete with a shared patio and parking. Its sleek, contemporary architecture reflects the dynamic image of its redeveloped suburban space.

Residents will benefit from The Parsons close proximity to Saint Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Harvard Business School and New Balance Headquarters. Its convenient location, situated by the Massachusetts Turnpike is ideal for commuters and those ready to be whisked off to more urban excitement.

These four residences will be soon hitting the market. Inquire now at

88-94 Parsons Street | Brighton

4 townhouses | 2+ bedrooms | 3.5 bathrooms

1,600 – 1,700 square-feet

Parking available
