On June 29th, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties held an event to commemorate the past and the future of the company. Continuing to celebrate the 2021 achievements of the company’s top sales teams and agents, this event also was the first held as a brokerage under HomeServices of America.

Gino Blefari, CEO of HomeServices of America, was the keynote speaker at the event and has had this to say on the recent acquisition of BHHS New Jersey Properties, “Bill, Chris, Steve, and Nancy, together with their leadership team, managers, agents, and employees have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to providing exceptional service to their buyers and sellers and have built an extraordinary company,” said Gino Blefari, CEO of HomeServices. “We are committed to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties’ continued growth and success, and we are proud to welcome them to the HomeServices family.”

In his remarks, Bill Keleher, chairman and CEO of BHHS New Jersey Properties, said, “Although 2021 was a banner year for the overall industry, I am proud to point out that in most of our local markets, our company outperformed the overall market. These results were due to the amazing determination and incredible courage that our agents and managers demonstrated.”

BHHS New Jersey Properties recognized the top agents and teams in each of the company’s 19 offices for succeeding in an extraordinarily tumultuous year. The 2021 Pinnacle Group contains the top ranked agents and teams among more than 800 sales professionals companywide—with 49 agents and 18 teams qualifying for membership last year. The countdown ended with the announcement of the 2021 Top Agent in the Company, Anthony Garofalo, Sales Associate of the Sea Girt Office, and 2021 Top Team in the Company, Orsini Real Estate and Marketing Group, led by Lauren Orsini, Sales Associate of the West Essex Regional Office.
