Another Honor for Franklin, Massachusetts


Franklin is a great family community.  We have the “T” to Boston and commuting is very easy.  It’s a wonderful town in which to raise children.  The activities are tremendous.

The town of Franklin, Massachusetts has just been voted as one of the best places to retire by US News and World Report.  The article notes Franklin’s location which is a convenient 45 minutes to both Boston or Providence, its low crime rate, wealth of recreational activities and close proximity to some of the best hospitals in the country.

This is definitely not the first time that Franklin, MA has been honored in the national media.  During theFranklin sign past few years, two major publications have voted Franklin as a best town to live.  Family Circle Magazine August 2007 issue named Franklin as “Top Ten Places to Raise a Family”.  They based their decision on communities that provided “big-city opportunities with suburban charm” and that offered “affordable houses, good jobs, top-rated schools, wide-open spaces and a lot less stress.”  They also took into account commute times, health care, crime rates, air quality, cultural amenities and volunteerism.  Franklin was the only New England town chosen based on an initial list of 1,850 municipalities with populations between 15,000 and 150,000. 

CNN Money also voted Franklin “Best Place to Live and Launch” for those looking for great living and working opportunities and also cite the town’s appeal to businesses.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
