Downtown Newburyport Family Friendly Restaurant – Italian & Lebanese Cuisine

Newburyport Family Friendly Restaurant

Oregano Pizzeria and Ristorante is a wonderful Newburyport family friendly restaurant featuring a welcoming and casual atmosphere.  They serve absolutely delicious Italian cuisine and Lebanese cuisine.  Located in a historic downtown Newburyport building, the restaurant has a charming ambiance with high ceiling and exposed brick walls, a beautifully framed bar and open kitchen.  In warm weather, the outdoor patio is great place to enjoy your meal.  In addition to offering Italian and Lebanese cuisine, Oregano is very well known for serving exceptional brick oven pizza.  They also prepare many delicious entrees such as chicken saltimbocca, scallop risotto, and braised lamb shank.  And for those who enjoy Lebanese cuisine, the lamb kabobs and falafel are not to be missed!  Oregano can delight the adults and satisfy the kids with delicious selection of pizzas or the option of the kid’s menu.  If you leave room for desert, the Pizza Cookie is a must.  Served with vanilla ice cream, the Pizza Cookie is a warm chocolate chip cookie baked in the pizza oven.  Try it once and it will become a tradition!

One of the unique features of this Newburyport family friendly restaurant is their oven, which was imported from Genoa, Italy.  This special oven heats up to 1400 degrees and can bake a pizza in three minutes.  Because the base plate of the oven is cut from one piece of Lumina stone, it helps the pizzas to cook evenly.  What does this mean for customers?  It allows the pizzas created at Oregano to be crispy and chewy at the same time.  Owners, Claude and Laura Elias believe strongly in using top quality ingredients.  San Marzano tomatoes are used to make the pizza sauce and marinara sauce as well as many other dishes, such as the braised lamb shank.  San Marzano tomatoes are grown in volcanic soil in the foot hills of Mont Vesuvius and known to be the highest quality most expensive tomatoes in the world.  The combination of the climate in this region and the volcanic ash make San Marzano tomatoes sweeter and less acidic than other tomato varieties.

Oregano is a terrific Newburyport restaurant choice for those who appreciate the option to pair great drinks and food together.  They not only serve crafted cocktails and high quality wines, but also offer imported and local craft beers.  The drink menu at Oregano features an extensive selection of wines by the glass.  Try a Malbec, Super Tuscan, Montepulciano, or the Lambrusco, a sparkling chilled red wine.  Stella and Peroni are always on tap, as are a rotating selection of craft beers from the greater Newburyport area.  Red sangria is offered all year and they also serve a refreshing and crisp white sangria in the warmer months.  The bartenders at Oregano create exceptional sangrias with the perfect balance of wine, fruit, and other ingredients.

Oregano Pizzeria and Ristorante is a family run and family managed Newburyport Italian and Lebanese restaurant that provides a high level of customer service.  Oregano is owned by Claude and Laura Elias and managed by the sibling team of TJ and Jill Kelly.  Claude and Laura Elias are very customer focused owners, and with their two sons Zachary and Sami they do many things to give back to the greater Newburyport Community.  They support and are involved in The Newburyport Education Foundation, The Newburyport PTO, Boys and Girls Club, and Anna Jaques Hospital, to name a few of the organizations they support.   Oregano is also a proud supporter of the Newburyport VIP Program offering discounts to Newburyport App/VIP Card Holders and raising money for local nonprofit organizations.  TJ and Jill do a fantastic job of managing the restaurant with TJ focusing on the restaurant and Jill on the bar.

Although Oregano Pizzeria and Ristorante does not take reservations, they do accommodate call-ahead seating.  Give them a call or stop in to add your party to the list.  Take a walk around town or relax while the kids enjoy the Inn Street Playground and Oregano will send you a text when your table is ready!  Come visit this Newburyport family friendly restaurant and enjoy delicious Italian cuisine and Lebanese cuisine.

Market Update – When Should You Put Your House on the Market? Are you waiting for the Spring market because you’ve heard that is the best time to list your property?  Some will say list your house, “just after the Super Bowl, or as soon as the snow starts to melt.”  Timing of when to put your house on the market is a very common question.  The answer depends on a few factors but the most important factors are: when is your house ready to show and when are you ready.

The Greater Newburyport real estate market is currently lite on inventory, as it frequently is in the middle of Winter months.  What’s this mean to sellers in the Greater Newburyport real estate market?  It means, don’t wait if your house is ready to be put on the market.  List now and you are likely to get a better price because there are many educated, quality buyers just waiting to act when they see the right property.

The Spring market is traditionally a very popular time to list, but sellers will experience substantially more competition because buyers have more options during the busy Spring market.  There are many very educated buyers in the Greater Newburyport real estate market place right now, many of which have been searching for quite some time.  These folks are sitting on the sidelines patiently waiting for the right property, and they clearly recognize when a great property comes along.   Don’t over-analyze when to put your house on the market.  This is a simple supply versus demand equation.  If your house is ready, jump in now and you are likely to get premium pricing while buyer demand is at its highest.

Finding the best agent just got easier, Newburyport MA

Finding the best agent just got easier.  In partnership with Zillow and Trulia, RealTrends.Com is a national site that provides rankings of Real Estate Agent performance.  They have been tracking Real Estate Agent performance at the agent, team, and brokerage level for the past eight years and provide consumers the data necessary to make an educated decision.

Buying and selling a home is typically one of the largest financial transactions you will make in your life time.  Therefore it is critical to choose a local experienced agent with a proven track record.  Do you purchase or sell a car without checking ratings websites?  Almost all people research properties online, but researching agents is also an important part of the equation.  You need someone you can count on to get the job done.

In real estate, like many other fields, the more transactions an agent has done, the more capable they are of effectively advising their clients.  At the end of the day, you don’t need a new best friend, you need someone with extensive knowledge and experience, which directly correlates with sales performance.

The Newburyport real estate market remains strong, but prices adjust with increased Newburyport housing inventory for the summer months, and Fall is starting to look the same.  The area saw premium pricing during the Winter months due to the low inventory but the Spring and Summer markets have provided buyers with many more options.  Properties in the mid and lower tier price points are selling as long as they are priced appropriately.  The upper tier housing market is not moving as quickly but again, the properties with realistic price points are selling.

Although we see some fluctuation in inventory and price points, the overall demand for Newburyport is strong.  The thriving downtown has so much to offer.  Newburyport serves as the hub for other North Shore and Southern NH towns with many great restaurants and shops and it’s beautiful views along the Merrimack River and close proximity to the beach.  The schools are strong as well with Newburyport High School just being ranked 253rd in News Weeks 2015 annual top 500 high school ranking and only one of 19 in Massachusetts.

If you are looking  to move to Newburyport, now is the time and if you are already a resident, it is highly likely that you have made a great long term investment by purchasing property in Newburyport. Contact Robert Bentley of Bentley’s to find out how much your Newburyport home is worth in today’s Newburyport MA Real Estate market.

Newburyport has become a top town on the Massachusetts North Shore, so when folks learn they are relocating here they first look to learn about this great community.  “Home Buyers are increasingly researching community first and not Real Estate as quality of life, schools, active lifestyle all remain large considerations to the home buying process” says Robert Bentley, Boston Power Player and the top agent in Greater Newburyport.

“We are seeing increased traffic on Newburyport.com and soon will have Newburyport Home Search built directly on the site’s real estate page that will allow visitors complete and direct access to MLS home for sale data updated real time.” Excitement for the value of Newburyport Real Estate remains high and inventory comes and goes, so working with a top local agent is critical to the Newburyport Home Search.  Reach out to Robert Bentley anytime with questions @ 781.858.5115.

Hearts Set on Newburyport

Consistent with the trends of 2013, the current real estate market in Newburyport, Massachusetts remains competitive as families look for entry points into the community.

“There was an uptick in luxury properties for a brief moment as developers raced to take advantage of converting smaller homes on the market into million dollar listings, but for the most part homes between $300,000 – $600,000 are what you’ll see on the market right now,” said Robert Bentley, owner of Bentley’s 

And though inventory has improved from the market’s dry patch over the summer, explained Bentley, because of the high demand for homes in this price range they don’t stay on the market long.

“My suggestion is to be prepared. If you know Newburyport is where you want to be, have all your ducks in a row before you even begin your search. This way when you find something for your family, you can act fast,” said Bentley.

Flips & Resales Continue Into Fall

@KathrynCartini, Multimedia Storyteller

Bentley's Real Estate Home SearchHaving time only for a breathe after the summer/school deadline rush that carried through until Labor Day, Greater Newburyport’s No 1 Real Estate Agent Robert Bentley is now gearing up for the fall real estate season, which is proving to be competitive.

“It’s not a buyer’s or seller’s market at the moment,” said Bentley. “People are still waiting for more inventory to hit.”

According to Bentley, the Newburyport real estate market lacks single family homes for sale, with homes on the market down 25% from this summer. This leads him to believe our fall trend may be in land for sale.

“Currently there are 21 lots of land for sale, so we’re hoping builders will start snapping them up to create new single family homes and meet the demand,” said Bentley.

Prices for these lots of land range from $219,000 to $598,000, and Bentley is particularly keeping his eye on Twomey Drive by Caswell Development.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of this opportunity and listing your single family home on the market this fall, Bentley recommends starting with his Home Value Bestimate. This tool allows you to assess the value of your property online with a comprehensive report that compares the attributes of your home against those of other homes on the market or recently sold.

On the flip side, the Newburyport condo market remains strong as many renovations and resales continue into the fall.

“There are 48 condominiums on sale right now in the Greater Newburyport area,” said Bentley.

104 State Street, Newburyport, Massachusetts Home for SaleBentley’s represented the highest priced condo sold this year listed at $759,900. This unit is located in downtown Newburyport. The sale is scheduled to close this month.

Schools Sell Homes in Greater Newburyport

My wife Laura and I decided to relocate from Boston to Newburyport, Massachusetts several years ago based on the lifestyle in which we wanted to raise our children.

Newburyport is a great small city, with fantastic restaurants and shops. It’s also easily accessible to everything and everywhere, so it was easy to picture our kids having an amazing childhood here.

After the move I was so inspired. It was exciting to pour my energy into real estate and share the Newburyport lifestyle with other young families interested in joining the community as well.

Now eight years later, we’re living the dream. Laura and I have added three girls to our family. We all have access to the river and ocean, and love getting involved with Youth Soccer and Nature Camps. I’ve also recently expanded the Bentley’s brand to include a team of exceptional realtors, and Laura and I are in the process of creating a Coastal Lifestyle Site that spotlights everything Greater Newburyport has to offer.

If I said before, I’ll say it again. Newburyport, It’s a Lifestyle, and we, like many others, aren’t taken a second of living here for granted.

The Clock is Ticking

Each year around this time I always experience an influx of real estate closings, but none more powerful than within the past couple months due to the opening of Newburyport’s new F.T. Bresnahan Elementary School.

This state-of-the-art facility on High Street has some truly impressive early education amenities, and I’m excited all three of my daughters (6, 5, 5) will have the opportunity to attend Bresnahan this year.

So while there’s nothing new about assisting families find their dream homes within their desired school districts, the heat is definitely on this summer as the time clock ticks closer to those school registration deadlines.

Time to Get on the Market

Just prior to this whirl of activity, real estate inventory in the Greater Newburyport area was at a lull.

After experiencing increased business during the summer months of years past, and keeping up to date with the Bresnahan school construction given my girls, Bentley’s worked together with other area top realtors to get the word out about needing new property on the market.

It worked, and those who were able to list their homes are now be rewarded with fast closing deals, at full asking price, from qualified buyers interested in raising their families in Newburyport.

It’s a Lifestyle Easily Assessable

You don’t have to work in Newburyport to live here and enjoy everything the city has to offer.

Downtown Newburyport is minutes from I-495 and I-95. We also have easy access to the MBTA Commuter Rail’s Newburyport/Rockport line that lands at Boston’s North Station.

Plus the CJRide runs non-stop services to and from Logan Airport and South Station, so pick a commute that works for you, and look forward to coming home to Newburyport.
