Owners and management of Ocean City based Weichert, Realtors - The Asbury Group, announced a second office opening in the heart of the famous Boardwalk town this week.
“We are the only real estate franchise located in A.C.,” said Broker Associate Gerard (Jerry) Barker, who is Branch Manager at the new location at 524 Pacific Avenue. “And, the word is apparently out, since we’ve signed over 20 new listings in the past month, even before announcing our official opening,” he added.
Barker was joined in the announcement by Broker/Owner John Moore and Managing Partner/Realtor Len Scannapieco, along with the start-up team of Radhika Shah, agent/assistant to Len Scannapieco, and agent Karen Rodriguez.
Moore joined the Weichert network in May 2004 when he opened Weichert, Realtors-The Asbury Group in Ocean City. He brought Barker aboard two months ago to prepare for the Atlantic City opening.
Barker is a 33-year Atlantic County resident, living in Hammonton. A member of the Atlantic County Board of Realtors, he brings seven years of real estate experience to the company, following a career in banking and with the United States Marine Corps.
The new Weichert office is located in the Bella Condominiums, across from the new beachfront Revel Hotel/Casino Resort.
“Atlantic City is not just a place to visit, but a place to live,” Barker said. “This is the perfect time for buyers and sellers, as well as real estate agents, to benefit from what Weichert has to offer.”
