Turpin Real Estate and Town & Country Properties announced that they are joining forces. The combination of these two firms, both leading independent brokers in the New Jersey residential real estate market, will bring increased resources to home buyers and sellers across the north-central part of the state.
Town & Country has been a force in the Chatham and Madison real estate markets since the company was first formed by a group of top agents fifteen years ago. Turpin has approximately 100 agents across five offices in Bernardsville, Far Hills, Mendham, Oldwick and Chatham, plus relocation, title and referral services. Founded in 1960, Turpin Real Estate is now in its third generation of family operation with John Turpin serving as president and broker of record, a position he will retain after the merger.
Town & Country Properties founders, Nancy Cook, Pamela Fairley, Deborah Hennessy, Marjorie Tompkins and Barbara Veeder, along with T&C associates, will join the existing Turpin sales team in their historic building at 186 Main Street in Chatham. Veeder will assume the role of branch manager for Turpin’s Chatham office.
“The Turpin brand has long-stood for quality in our region. Merging with Turpin now gives our agents access to a wealth of new marketing channels and tools that will help them grow their businesses,” said Veeder. “Furthermore our clients will benefit from the increased exposure available through Turpin’s network of global affiliations.”
John Turpin was equally enthusiastic about the merger saying, “The founders of Town & Country have built a culture based on top notch service and unwavering ethics, which makes them the perfect fit for our organization. I could not be more thrilled to be in business with these stellar professionals.” He added, “As for Turpin’s clients, they benefit from our expanded presence in the more easterly markets, where experience tells us that newcomers to the Somerset Hills, Harding, the Mendhams and Hunterdon County often originate.”
