Dr. Karin Johnson

Dr. Karin Johnson moved to Springfield in 2008 to work in the neurology and sleep medicine department at Baystate Medical Center. She purchased a Victorian row house in the downtown neighborhood, and loves her new community. She grew up in a similar neighborhood in Boston and wanted to find that same sense of community when she came to this city.

 Karin looked at places in Longmeadow and Northampton, but chose Springfield because she preferred the more diverse, urban community, and because she could get a lot more house for her money. Some of her favorite things about living in Springfield are the Mattoon Street Arts Festival, the thriving downtown restaurant scene (Onyx and 350 Grill are her current favorites), and the live music available indoors and out all year long. She also enjoyed the 2008 Shakespeare in the Park performance.

 Karin’s home is convenient to her job, her social life, and to get to the highway for her Boston friends to visit her. She says she’s met more neighbors in the first few months of living in Springfield than she did when she lived in East Providence for four years. Karin tells prospective homebuyers that Springfield has a lot to offer; her friends who visit agree.
