Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors of New Jersey recently celebrated their 15th anniversary

Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors of New Jersey recently celebrated their 15th anniversary. At an event hosted by owners Doug Radford and Kyle Poskitt, they acknowledged the outstanding work of their support staff, management team, dedicated associates and industry partners, saying, “It takes an incredible group of talented professionals working together to make it all happen.”

According to Radford, the partners teamed up in 2001 “with a dream of offering superior client service” and have now grown to over 260 Executives in 12 branches. The brokerage has offices throughout Northern New Jersey, Upstate New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania, including Butler, Byram, Fairfield, Little Falls, Oakland, Pompton Plains, Randolph, Sparta, Vernon, West Milford and Woodland Park in New Jersey, and Milford in Pennsylvania.  The firm also has affiliated companies that offer mortgage, title and home warranty services.

Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors recently received national recognition in the 2016 REAL Trends 500 report, placing in the top 500 real estate companies in the country ranked by closed unit transaction volume. 

“Our associates and our clients love our company, because we have professionals handling every aspect of the marketing and administration behind the scenes. Our support center staff handles all incoming phone calls and internet home inquiries and seamlessly forwards all calls and inquiries directly to the homes’ listing agent.  Who knows the house better than the listing agent?” asks Radford. “As logical as this system sounds, we are the only brokerage in New Jersey that operates this way,” he adds. 

The firm is continuing to grow and expand, with plans to open their 13th office in Wayne, New Jersey this summer. “We are looking forward to another 15 years of success for the Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors® brokerage, as well as the continued growth and development of the Realty Executives brand throughout New Jersey,” says Radford.
