HOBOKEN, NJ—Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty has entered the Hoboken, NJ residential real estate market.

The firm reported recently it had acquired Riverside Realty, which is located at 209 Washington St. in Hoboken, NJ.

“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.”

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.”
