Tri-County Realty Teams with Rand Realty

NANUET, NY – Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty continues to grow throughout Northern New Jersey, following their Wayne, New Jersey, office’s acquisition of Tri-County Realty, which was located in the township and owned by Joseph Palermo, a broker/salesperson.

“I’ve had the privilege of leading my brokerage for 20 years, and I’m grateful that my dedicated team now has the chance to work with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty,” said Palermo.  “My agents have a strong commitment to service, which will make them a perfect match for their new colleagues.”

Palermo has been licensed since 1980 and has held several distinguished positions within past agencies.  He has been a top manager for Schlott Realtors, an area manager for Coldwell Banker, and a regional vice president and Wayne office manager for Better Homes and Gardens Murphy & Co.  He has consistently achieved status as a million-dollar producer, is a member of the New Jersey REALTORS® Distinguished Sales Club, and is a recipient of their Circle of Excellence Award.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Joseph and his team of agents,” said Justin Wrobel, New Jersey regional manager for Rand Realty.  “The deep roots that they have in our markets are going to open new opportunities for our offices in these regions.”
