Pennington, NJ—Richard A. Weidel, President and Brenda Maxfield, Director of Operations are pleased to announce that Weidel Realtors is celebrating 95 years in business this year.
“When my Grandfather started this company, his main goal was to help people realize the dream of homeownership and to ensure their assets were protected,” said Richard A. Weidel Jr. “In almost 100 years of doing business, that philosophy has not changed. We are here to help people with their real estate, mortgage and insurance needs while providing the utmost in customer satisfaction.”
Founded in 1915, Weidel was established as an insurance and real estate brokerage by Karl Weidel Jr. In 1949 his sons continued the business after honorably serving in WWII, with Karl Weidel III overseeing the insurance division while Richard A. Weidel Sr. began working in real estate sales.
In 1959, the company broke new ground as one of the first real estate brokers in central New Jersey to expand their operation by opening a “branch” office. In the 1960’s, Richard A. Weidel Sr. became a founding member of Mercer County’s Multiple Listing Service and company innovations included the creation of the Valu-Vision Show of Homes and the Rand-O-Matic Electronic Home Selector, one of the first “computers” used in real estate.
The 1970’s were marked by the expansion of multiple branch offices and national recognition through affiliations. In the 1980’s, the Richard A. Weidel Corporation broadened its business focus to incorporate all aspects of a comprehensive real estate services organization. Continuing the family legacy, Richard A. Weidel Jr. expanded the company’s services through the implementation of an internal mortgage company, national relocation department and a real estate pre-licensing school. In the 1990’s, Weidel Realtors’ services extended to include an insurance arm offering title, general liability and homeowners insurance.
