Settled by the Puritans in 1640, Malden has long been home to generations of Massachusetts families. It’s located less than 10 miles from downtown Boston and known for its vibrant residential neighborhoods.

Diversity, affordability, and proximity to Boston make Malden an ideal place for young and old alike to buy real estate. Originally called “Mistick Side” because of its location north of the Mystic River, Malden today is a thriving city known for its leafy parks and family-friendly atmosphere. This Boston suburb bridges the old with the new and is home to a number of distinct neighborhoods, each with its own character and history.

Additionally, Malden borders the Middlesex Fells Reservation which is full of walking and hiking trails. And don’t forget about the “Jewel of Malden”- the 25 acre Fellsmere Pond.
