NANUET, NY – Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty is pleased to announce that it has acquired Riverside Realty, which is located at 209 Washington Street in Hoboken, New Jersey.

“We received a high demand of requests from agents in Hoboken to find out when we were going to be entering that market, and we’re very excited to arrive there and work with Riverside Realty,” said Justin Wrobel, New Jersey regional manager for Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “Over the past few years, our company has worked hard to build a strong presence in New Jersey, just as we have in New York, and our expansion into Hoboken will continue that enterprise as we establish lasting connections in that locale.”

Riverside Realty was founded by Neima Grandela on July 7, 1986, and is currently owned and managed by Mary M. Knapp, a 21-year experienced and respected broker. Riverside Realty has been a dedicated group of agents in Hoboken for more than 31 years.

“We are so proud of what we have accomplished with our team of experts in Hudson County and the surrounding areas over the years,” said Knapp. “We chose to join Rand Realty because they share our same core values, which are to provide the best service and create lasting relationships with our customers. We care about our community and are eager to take a hold of the countless opportunities that will come our way in this new stage of our careers.”
