Increased Sales, Staffing Mark First Year Gains for Gloria Nilson & Co.'s Toms River Office

1481584220TOMS RIVER, NJIn late 2015, Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate opened its Toms River office at 411 Main Street with 12 sales associates and the intention to successfully invest itself in Ocean County’s second most populous municipality. When the company marks the Toms River office’s one-year anniversary on Dec. 10, that success will be evident:

  • Office closings exceeded 2016 projections by 47 percent
  • Office listings exceeded 2016 projections by 20 percent
  • Office team expanded to 20 full-time sales associates

“Toms River is a vibrant, inviting community that has really welcomed our team and the Gloria Nilson & Co. brand,” said Jacqueline ”Jackie” Paterno, the broker-associate branch manager for the Toms River office. “Our sales associates really embraced the idea of building our office and our business here, and their diligence has been key to our first year’s growth. We have several multi-million dollar agents distinguishing themselves and, as a result, our office.”

According to Regional Vice President Richard F. Martel Jr., the expansion into Toms River has not only yielded more business, but it has further expanded Gloria Nilson & Co.’s footprint in a desirable region. The Toms River Office is the hub of the company’s expansion along the Ocean County coastal market.

“As we continue to follow our long-term growth strategy, Toms River is one more example of Gloria Nilson & Co.’s ability to find the right location, assemble a strong team and provide ample support to ensure success,” explained Martel. “Meanwhile we’re continuing to focus on recruiting talented, new and experienced professionals to help us continue this positive trend in 2017 and beyond.”

Internal projections for 2017 promise a strong second year for the Toms River office. By focusing on recruitment of experienced agents, ongoing training and advanced technology and marketing support, Martel said Gloria Nilson & Co. is positioned for continued growth in the Toms River office.

“A strong brand relies heavily on good people to support it. That is one of the central pillars of our continued, sustained growth and none of the advances in Toms River would have happened without the leadership skills and determination of Jackie Paterno” said Martel.
