Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty Opens Office in Morristown, NJ

NANUET, NY – Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty is pleased to announce that they have opened a new office in Morristown, New Jersey, at 163 Madison Avenue, Suite 110.

“It’s a modern-day workplace in an office building, which is a perfect meeting spot for agents and clients,” said Jeffrey Halpern, business development manager for the New Jersey offices of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty.  “It has all of the technology, support, and space that’s necessary for the agents’ success, and we look forward to tackling this market with our growing team of Realtors.”

Morristown is at the center of Morris County, making it the ideal location from which Realtors can reach out to the community.  It’s a small urban area in a suburban environment, complete with a train station that has a direct line into New York City, eateries, offices, upscale shops, the famous Mayo Performing Arts Center, and the highly rated Morristown Medical Center.  This office will serve all of Morris County, as well as Upper Union County.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join forces with the Rand family and their amazing company,” said Keith Kirkwood, manager of the Morristown, New Jersey office.  “I’ve always admired the exquisite design and lifestyle brand of Better Homes and Gardens, and I feel blessed and optimistic about the future.”

Kirkwood, originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, moved with his family to New Jersey in 2011, and he has been a licensed realtor ever since. For his excellence in the field, Kirkwood earned the New Jersey REALTORS® Circle of Excellence Sales Award at the Platinum level for 2016. To reach the Platinum level, a member must achieve a minimum of $20 million in closed dollar volume and 30 units, or 125 units. Last year, Kirkwood and his team, “The Kirkwood Group,” successfully helped over 50 families buy and/or sell their homes.

“Morristown is one of the most vibrant areas in New Jersey, and we’re thrilled to be given the chance to immerse ourselves in this market,” said Matthew Rand, CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “Morris County is a fast-growing market and represents a huge opportunity for growth of our firm.”
