The Town of Carlisle Massachusetts


Carlisle is an affluent, rural town northwest of Boston, located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. English colonialists first settled the area comprising the town of Carlisle in 1651 on parcels of land of the neighboring towns of Acton, Billerica, Chelmsford and Concord. Carlisle became a district of Concord in 1780 and was officially incorporated as a town in 1805.

Carlisle contains a library, a country store, a dentist’s office, an automated teller machine and many residential buildings. Kimball Farms is an ice-cream store fairly well known in the state of Massachusetts. On the east end of town there is an auto body shop. The town newspaper, the Carlisle Mosquito, has appeared as the weekly independent newspaper of the town since 1972. The paper includes local news, announcements and logs.

Carlisle is located about eight miles south-southwest of Lowell and 19 miles northwest of Boston. It borders the towns of Concord, Acton, Westford, Chelmsford, Billerica and Bedford. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 15.5 square miles, of which 15.4 square miles is land and 0.2 square miles is water. Conservation land makes up about a quarter of the town’s area. Besides town-owned land overseen by the town’s conservation committee, Carlisle is home to Great Brook Farm State Park and a portion of the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge neighboring the Concord River.

As mentioned elsewhere on this website, a good real estate property management company knows that one key aspect of the job is to attract tenants. To do this effectively, the message must be appropriately focused on the target market. An experienced property manager considers offbeat advertising: Instead of investing the entire advertising budget in one place, the manager will be creative, trying new venues to better reach the target audience. At the same time, it’s important to reconsider traditionally expensive venues, such as billboard ads and expensive print advertising. Not to be overlooked is the powerful effect of property signage, the most effective way to attract tenants. We all know that offering free rent ultimately affects the value of our properties but that doesn’t change the fact that people in our newly bargain-conscious society still like to get something for free. Instead of free rent, the property manager may consider offering a goodie such as an iPod with a Bose docking station or a gift certificate to a popular local restaurant, upon signing an apartment or office lease. Even in the most challenging times, both business owners and consumers will still need places to live, work and shop. The astute and experienced property manager understands that applying creative and sensible techniques, focusing attention on the property’s target market, represents a solid recipe for marketing success. With the right property manager, success is virtually guaranteed.
