BOSTON MA – The new “job numbers” were posted last quarter. The government said there were 103,000 jobs added. We could have told you that weeks ago. In the past few months there were 10 small lease transactions totaling 27,000 sf.

As we all know, small companies create jobs, and these companies are no exception. The list of companies include diMagi, Altria, Kelly Services, Cogito, MAPC, Early Sense, Charlestown Veterinary Hospital, ProTravel, Semper LLC and First Call.  A variety of firms providing a wide range of services and products to companies and consumers. This list is very representative of the growth and expansion we are seeing in the greater Boston area.  One transaction was a renewal and one a downsize, but the rest are all expansions or new companies coming to the Boston market.

The Stevens Group is the Boston affiliate of ITRA Global, the International Tenant Representative Alliance, an organization of independently owned commercial real estate firms with offices in major markets in North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim.
