Our History

FirstService Residential Massachusetts was founded in 1907 as The Niles Company, Inc. and developed the reputation as the property management firm of choice in Boston and the surrounding suburbs by acquiring and managing residential real estate. The company expanded during the Great Depression by managing properties for banks and other owners who were suffering with financial problems. In the 1940s and 1950s, The Niles Company continued to grow as many banks turned to the company for real estate expertise. The 1970s and 1980s brought high interest rates and the rapid conversion of apartments into condominiums. This volatile time period also marked the beginning of the transformation of Niles into a full-service property management company. Moving into the 1990s, The Niles Company broadened the services they offered by and ushered in a period of impressive growth. In June, 2016, The Niles Company became part of FirstService Residential, North America’s largest manager of residential communities and the preferred partner of HOAs, community associations and corporations in the United States and Canada. In May, 2017 The Niles Company officially rebranded to FirstService Residential. Today, we are recognized as one of New England’s premier property management companies.
