NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - On Friday afternoon, local business owners, public officials, residents, employees and executive officers of Prudential New Jersey Properties joined together for the grand reopening of Prudential New Jersey Properties’ New Providence Office at 1260 Springfield Avenue in the Village Shopping Center. The new location and state-of-the-art facility is just a few doors down from its previous location but employs a sleek, contemporary new look, cutting edge technology, and a more customer-friendly layout for today's real estate client.
Mike DelDuca, Office Manager of the New Providence Office, told TheAlternativePress.com, "We're absolutely ecstatic to be in this new location in a state-of-the-art office with top agents. It's a pleasure to continue to be in the Village Shopping Center as we watch more and more stores open up in the plaza." Realtor Michele DiBenedetto, who is the realtor for the Foley Square development at Murray Hill, added, "As an agent, I'm very happy to be part of this cutting-edge office in our new location. New Providence real estate is really heating up and I'm excited about all of the new possibilities."
Denise Bomberg of Dacker Sellew & Douglas designed the new location. Her company has worked with Prudential for over fifteen years. "It was exciting. We supplied the furniture and assisted in selecting the finishes. It's definitely a new concept for Prudential and is more technology-based," she said.
Bill Keleher, CEO of Prudential New Jersey Properties, said, "We are very very excited for the grand reopening and to welcome our very successful New Providence Office to this venue. This grand reopening comes at a very important time for us as we are on the verge of converting to the Berkshire Hathaway Home Services brand." "We are proud of this state-of-the-art facility which is technology-friendly and user-friendly for our realtors and welcoming for today's consumer," added Steven Janett, COO.
Chris Brown, General Sales Manager, said that his father, Gordon Brown, first opened the New Providence location in 1974 at the Murray Hill Train Station and moved to the Village Shopping Center in 1982. Brown/Fowler Prudential New Jersey Properties has now been in New Providence for over forty years. "It means a great deal to us to continue to be here and improve our facility and offerings to the public," Brown said.
New Providence Councilman Gary Kapner added, "It's a beautiful facility. We're extremely pleased that Prudential was able to relocate in the Village Shopping Center and build this cutting-edge facility and continue to be part of our community."
