Living In The Pioneer Valley

Living In The Pioneer Valley


  • Outstanding Quality of Life
  • Low Cost of Living
  • Easy Access to New York City and Boston
  • Ocean beaches of Cape Cod, Rhode Island or Long Island Sound
  • Mountains of VT and NH with world-class ski areas and hiking
  • Vibrant and historic college towns of Amherst and North Hampton

SAS is centered in Springfield, MA, but our team members can choose to live in areas as diverse as the rural Massachusetts towns scattered among the hills of the Connecticut river valley, to the eclectic college towns of Amherst or North Hampton, to the vibrant suburban neighborhoods of Longmeadow, MA or West Hartford, CT.

Regardless, the Pioneer Valley boasts an excellent quality of life and low cost of living. The proximity to the major cities of New York and Boston, with their cultural offerings and transportation hubs, is juxtaposed against the easy access to beaches and lakes, and outstanding ski areas in the mountains of VT or NH.

Of course we don’t have to travel far for anything. The active arts community in North Hampton, the symphonies and theaters of Springfield, Hartford and
Tanglewood, the unparalleled dining of West Hartford and the convenience of Bradley International Airport all bring the draws of the big cities right to our doorsteps.
