Treasures of Cambridge #13 Treasures of Cambridge #13

Joshua Slyman pictured in front of the vault in the former Bean Head’s Coffee House has lived in Cambridge for most of his life-- some twenty-six out of his twenty-eight years. Joshua loves the “small town feel” along with the sense of community he has here, "the closeness I have with others and the artistic accessibility of the area". His fondest memories of living here are growing up on Main Street, "running the town from one end to the other... it is safe and a fun place to be and my parents did not have to worry about me."

After working for a advertising agency in Manchester, Vermont, Joshua began to realize the majority of the publications devoted to selling real estate in the area left room for improvement, and so he left the security of working for someone else to pursue the dream of becoming a publisher. He now publishes the Hearthstone Guide right here in Cambridge, a guide that has quickly become the finest quality publication for people looking to buy or sell real estate, with a circulation of approximately 25,000 throughout New York's Capital District, the Saratoga / Lake George region, and Southern Vermont.

"Starting my own business has probably been the most interesting, exciting… and scary thing I have done in my life. It has been a lot of fun and a huge learning experience". Joshua would like to be remembered as being a fun person to be with, "I am not trying to achieve anything huge, I just want to hang out with my friends and have fun".

With all the time and dedication Joshua puts into his business venture, it takes a place like Cambridge to allow for that balance of hard work and play. You can contact Joshua at The Hearthstone Real Estate Guide (518) 677-3912
