The Town of Everett Massachusetts


Everett is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, four miles north of Boston. Originally part of Charlestown (and later Malden), Everett changed in 1892 from a town to a city. On December 13, 1892, Alonzo H. Evans defeated George E. Smith to become Everett’s first Mayor. The town separated from Malden in 1870. The city was named after Edward Everett, who served as a U.S. congressman, senator, the 15th Governor of Massachusetts, Minister to Great Britain and United States Secretary of State. He also served as President of Harvard University.

Everett is bordered by Malden on the north, Revere on the east, Chelsea on the southeast, Boston and the Mystic River on the south and Somerville and Medford on the west. Glendale Park is the city’s largest park. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.7 square miles, of which 3.4 square miles is land and 0.3 square miles (7.63%) is water.

Everett has eight public schools, including six elementary schools, five middle schools and one high school, Everett High School. The city also has a number of private schools, including three K-8 schools and one high school, Pope John XXIII High School. Sites of interest include part of the historic Revere Beach Parkway listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Also, the Leavitt Corporation has been manufacturing its trademark Teddie Peanut Butter in the city since 1924.

J. Butler Property Management, LLC. : Everett, Massachusetts

A property management company that is not truly on-the-ball may not be aware of how prospective tenants view the property, relative to similar properties in the area. Often, these are conversations and perspectives that the leasing broker is attuned to but may not think to share with the property manager unless they’re working together. Working in the same office takes this potential partnership to a new level, given the benefits of sharing this type of information in an open, transparent setting. This partnership helps create a competitive edge. For example, if a competitor was performing a green retrofit by installing a new lighting system, instituting a more aggressive recycling plan and low-usage water appliances in a nearby office project, a property manager may never know without the eyes and ears of a leasing broker who is familiar with what amenities, services and renovations that competitors are making to retain existing tenants and to attract new ones. This sort of relationship is symbiotic: leasing brokers can benefit from the insight property managers provide when marketing a particular property. Since brokers may not be aware of the intimate details of what makes a property unique, property managers provide details that may facilitate filling vacancies with new tenants and maintaining existing tenants by pointing out where projects like retrofits or other scheduled upgrades can be made. Remember that efforts can be enhanced when leasing and management are working as one.
