After more than a decade in IT development, project & people management experience, I embarked on a new career path in an entrepreneurial direction to build and develop a real estate services company.
What started in 2004 as a small home based title agency sales office required a new long term strategic and multi-year expansion plan when the real estate bubble burst. Despite the serious economic & real estate declines we outlined a long term strategy and business goals to successfully expand and grow the business.
Over the past decade, we have expanded the organization in many areas of the real estate industry. With a deep understanding of the transactional and legal requirements through our title agency foundation, we now offer both retail and commercial brokerage services.
Under our Mantrose Group holding company we are direct buyers of commercial properties as well as land development/construction for both residential and commercial projects.
The most recent expansion area has been into the engineering and surveying professional space. We successfully acquired New Lines NJ – Engineering & Survey and have grown it to focus on Civil Engineering for residential multi-family housing, institutional and commercial properties. Surveying for purchases, land development and construction layouts of all sizes and finally a Soil Lab for permeability, water table tests, etc…
Currently my focus is on New Lines NJ management and growth as well as new projects into other real estate or business opportunities.
In early 2007, I joined this home based real estate title agency to design & execute a strategic long term business development plan. Over the next few years I expanded its products & services yet maintained its boutique style of service dedication.
In March 2008, TOMA was launched initially to being its title processing in house to fully control the transaction process to provide better service to our clients.
In 2010, we expanded services and opened up 2 new ventures: a real estate training school under the Licensing Training Center of NJ entity and TOMA Real Estate focusing on residential brokerage sales.
In 2012 we refocused on the commercial side of the business. We focus on 3 lines of service at this time:
– Commercial Sales & Brokerage
– Bank Notes & Off Market Products (i.e. syndication)
– Mortgage products for the commercial & construction market
Additionally, we began a series of free real estate/business seminars focusing on the first time home buyers, first responders, employee to entrepreneur transition, and more. This is our way of offering to the community some knowledge, experience and know-how that could assist them in some way as well.
As we continue to grow and never stray from the strong service level we seek to match up additional services and products that fit with our business and service model.
Our primary service products include:
– Title abstract & insurance
– Residential Sales & Brokerage
– Development & Construction
– Commercial Sales & Brokerage
– Commercial Mortgage Brokers.
