The seaside communities of Southeastern Massachusetts are more than just tourist attractions. They offer a quality of life that attracts and retains skilled workers. A range of residential options are within a short drive to both Boston and Providence.

Effective July 15, the South Regional Office will be closed. Our new Fall River location will be updated upon tenancy. During this time, please send all mail to 99 High Street, Boston MA 02110.
