Brockton Real Estate Update
Brockton is the seventh largest city in Massachusetts with a population of about 95,000 people. It is sometimes referred to as the "City of Champions", due to the success of native boxers Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler, as well as the successful Brockton High School sports programs. Two of the villages within the city are Montello and Campello: both have the distinction of having their own MBTA Commuter Rail Stations and post offices. Brockton hosts a baseball team, the Brockton Rox and is one of the windiest cities in the United States, with an average wind speed of 14.3 mph.
