Expands company’s presence along southern Jersey shore

Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, today announced that it has joined forces with Premier Properties Real Estate, Inc., a real estate brokerage in Longport, N.J. Going forward, Premier Properties Real Estate will operate under the Long & Foster brand at its existing location in Longport, N.J.

“Like Long & Foster, Premier Properties Real Estate has a long history of success in real estate, and we’re pleased to welcome their team to our family,” said Terry Spahr, regional manager of Long & Foster’s Delaware, Eastern Shore and New Jersey region. “Together, we’ll build upon and expand the already high quality of support and services that we offer home buyers and sellers, as well as vacationers, in southern New Jersey.”

Currently owned and operated by owners Jerome and Angel DiPentino, Premier Properties Real Estate specializes in vacation and luxury home sales throughout Atlantic County, including the communities of Longport, Margate, Ventnor and Atlantic City. Its team of almost a dozen licensed real estate professionals has served the Jersey shore for 25 years. During its history, Premier Properties Real Estate has grown to become the dominant real estate firm in Longport, N.J.

“Long & Foster is known not only for providing the highest quality of service and support to home buyers and sellers, but also for helping real estate agents achieve success in the business, so joining the Long & Foster family presents an extraordinary opportunity for both the Premier Properties Real Estate team and our clients,” said Jerome and Angel DiPentino. “We’re excited to take full advantage of all the marketing, training and technology that Long & Foster provides, including its exclusive relationship with Christie’s International Real Estate in southern New Jersey.”

Jerome and Angel DiPentino will remain with Long & Foster and continue to list and sell real estate as in the past. Jerome DiPentino will remain as broker, working with the Longport office’s new Branch Manager Mike Mavromates, who currently leads Long & Foster’s Avalon, N.J., office as well. Jerome DiPentino brings more than 35 years of experience in the residential real estate business in both southern New Jersey and the Philadelphia, Pa., area. Angel DiPentino, who has 25 years of experience, will continue her existing sales role with the company.

The acquisition of Premier Properties Real Estate aligns with Long & Foster’s overall growth strategy and expands the company’s presence along the southern New Jersey shore. With the addition of Premier Properties Real Estate, Long & Foster now has 12 offices in New Jersey. The company also serves as the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate throughout the southern New Jersey market where Premier Properties Real Estate is based.

“Long & Foster strives to serve as the No. 1 choice for home buyers, sellers and vacationers in Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and the addition of Jerome & Angel and their Premier Properties Real Estate team helps position our company, our agents and their home buyers and sellers for continued success,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Through our regional growth, we create the foremost place for real estate agents to build their careers and to help their clients achieve their homeownership dreams.”
