Long & Foster Grows in Monmouth County, New Jersey

March 12, 2018

Opens new Middletown office led by Realtor Matthew Taetsch

Long & Foster Real Estate will open a new office in Middletown, New Jersey. Matthew Taetsch, who has recently joined the The Kilbride & Cagnina Group of Long & Foster, will head the new location. The Middletown facility will operate as an additional location for The Kilbride & Cagnina Group, which currently has offices operating in Colts Neck and Fair Haven. All three offices will now operate as Long & Foster Monmouth County, and it will be managed by Barbara Mulvenna, who also oversees Long & Foster’s Cherry Hill location.

“Long & Foster is committed to growing our presence in New Jersey, and opening this new office with Matt and the Kilbride & Cagnina Group allows us to increase our footprint and better serve home buyers and sellers in Monmouth County,” said Bob Albanese, senior regional vice president of Long & Foster’s New Jersey region.

Taetsch, a native-born of Monmouth County, first entered the real estate industry while attending Temple University in Philadelphia. While in school, he obtained his real estate license and began serving in and around the greater Philadelphia area, specializing in luxury new construction and development. Shortly after graduating from Temple, Taetsch joined the U.S. Navy, where he served in Operation Enduring Freedom. After serving the country, he returned to New Jersey and continued his career in real estate.

With the help of his family, Taetsch purchased a large piece of land that he then subdivided and sold to a developer. Through this transaction, he gained knowledge about how builders market their developments, and subsequently established his own division to handle those responsibilities for developers. Taetsch provides them with trained real estate agents to sell and show their properties. His division handles everything from advertising and marketing to contracts and closings.

He’s worked with a variety of developers, including Martelli Development Group, Gotham Group, YMCA and United Way. Taetsch and his team currently represent several new construction developers and communities in the greater Monmouth County area, and they continue to work with individual home buyers and sellers as well.

“For the past 50 years, Long & Foster has been home to the best-trained, best-equipped real estate agents and leaders in the industry, and we have no doubt that the new Middletown office will be the go-to resource when consumers in this area are looking to make confident, well-informed buying and selling decisions,” Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, said.
