About Us

Building Relationships.
Delivering Value.

As a commercial real estate agency, our approach is simple: we focus on building relationships and delivering value for our clients.

Building Relationships

For decades, we have built relationships with our clients, including investors seeking commercial property and land and business owners seeking commercial property to buy, sell, lease and manage. We have relationships throughout both the private and public sectors, and these important partnerships allow us to best serve our clients.

Walking the hallways of a city or town hall in Greater Lowell, or traveling throughout the Merrimack Valley and in Southern New Hampshire, we see familiar faces with whom we have worked for years. We regularly introduce clients to tradespeople and trusted service providers to help our clients achieve their goals.

Delivering Value

The value we deliver is best measured by our clients. Our commitment is to help our clients be successful. Success is measured in terms of increased value in investment properties and steady revenue streams resulting from the ability to attract and retain quality tenants. Our clients also benefit from the value of our insight and strategic thinking.

There are many choices for commercial real estate service brokerage and property management companies. It is the combination of experience, local market knowledge and breadth of services that sets Bell Tower Commercial Real Estate Group apart.

Our Story

The Edge Group, Inc. and Bell Tower Management LLC announced they were joining forces back in 2021, building on each firm’s reputation and success serving the Greater Lowell and Greater Lawrence communities. Since the announcement, Fred Faust and Gary Sidell have worked together on identifying and implementing best practices and building on core capabilities. Now with expanded regional reach and expanded staff capacity, the two firms have merged and operate as one entity:  Bell Tower Commercial Real Estate Group.

Edge Group Inc.

The Edge Group, Inc., founded by Fred Faust in 1997, earned its reputation as a leading commercial real estate agency serving the Greater Lowell market with brokerage, property management, project management and consulting services. Faust’s background includes public and private sector experience and community leadership.

Bell Tower Management

Bell Tower Management LLC, founded in 2001 by Gary Sidell and his late father, Chet Sidell, built its reputation for excellence in property management services and the redevelopment of historic properties in Lawrence, MA. With a hands-on philosophy, they built the business through a personal dedication to serving each client and the community at large; the business now serves clients throughout the Merrimack Valley. Today, these relationships remain strong and are the reason we work hard and love what we do.

Bell Tower Commercial Real Estate Group

Bell Tower Commercial Real Estate Group builds on the reputations and legacy of these two successful commercial real estate companies with a continuing commitment to focus on being accountable, building relationships and delivering value for our clients.

Naturally, The Edge Group brought to the table the market knowledge and experience we needed, but it was their personal approach with the community and the people involved that were most important in helping us make our transaction successful. We couldn’t be more grateful for their good work.
