Jack Conway Mansfield Realtor Ed Tartufo recently spoke to a packed conference room of colleagues from Conway’s local offices about the promising economic future of towns in their region.
“Since 1990, Southeastern Massachusetts has grown at twice the rate of the state as a whole,” said Tartufo, leading a discussion at Conway’s Lakeville training center. “People are moving here because they can buy land and houses for less money, enjoy a suburban lifestyle and still commute to Boston. And when the South Coast Rail is extended, that will spur even more residential and industrial growth in our area.”
Tartufo cited a report published recently by the Boston Herald that named a “Top 10″ List of Massachusetts communities that are “poised for growth.” Local towns were on the list based on such factors as: “the size of recent developments, available real estate and infrastructure, and innovative pro-business initiatives that help draw companies, including biotech firms, to the town.”
In the last 10 years, Jack Conway, Realtor has expanded its market share in S.E. Mass with the addition of new sales centers along the I-495 corridor. Conway CEO Carol Bulman believes her company is in “the perfect place” to serve the real estate needs of home buyers and sellers in these communities now and in the future. “We have Conway Country offices in Mansfield, North Attleboro, Norton, Taunton, Lakeville, Sandwich, Wareham, Mattapoisett, Dartmouth and Padanaram,” said Bulman. “And we plan to extend our footprint even further in this rapidly developing area.”
During his presentation to his peers, Tartufo touted the benefits that draw new residents to their region. “Our communities are close to coastal areas and major recreational sites like the Comcast Center, the TPC (site of the PGA’s Deutsche Bank Championship), and Gillette Stadium,” he said. “They are good towns, with good school systems, lower unemployment rates, and an increasingly educated workforce. This area is going to be in great demand as it grows and attracts new business in the years ahead.”
Tartufo joined the staff of Jack Conway, Realtor in 2001 when his former firm, merged with the 40-office company. He is a longtime director and past vice-president of economic development of the Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce serving Norton, Mansfield and Foxboro.
