Cindy Cantrell

Residential Leasing Agent

“I was inspired to get my real estate salesperson license after a disappointing experience as a buyer. I got my start at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Winchester in 2001, worked for Charles Associates in Cambridge from 2008 until March 2020. I pride myself in providing expert service and an overall positive, stress-free experience. Outside of real estate, I’m a freelance writer for The Boston Globe and numerous other newspapers and magazines. I have also taught memoir writing classes and volunteered by reading to youth members at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence.”

Pat Murphy

Waltham Rentals Team Leader


Known for her positive energy and easy smile, Pat Murphy has been involved in community service in Waltham for several years. Awhile back she was asked to assist a local nonprofit by gathering donations for their Christmas holiday party. The support from the community was tremendous and the donation drive was a success. Pat realized she had a knack of connecting together people in need with those that had time, money, knowledge or items to donate. Over the years beneficiaries of Pat’s skills have included the Waltham Senior Center, Dancing with the Waltham Stars, Friends of the Waltham Seniors, Africano Waltham and the Waltham Community Day Center. Utilizing Facebook, Pat has had donations dropped at her Waltham home or will drive around town to pick them up at people’s homes. Pat says “People want to donate, but they don’t know where or how to do so. I make it easy for them”. Wishing to continue her volunteer activities while working as a real estate agent, Charles River Properties supports Pat in her efforts. Watch for Charles River Properties events to support those in need through Pat and her connections.
