Top NJ Family Business

Recognized by Governor Chris Christie as Top NJ Family Business


Pennington, NJ – October 20, 2015 – Weidel Real Estate, a leading independent real estate agency in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, was chosen as a semifinalist winner for the 2015 New Jersey Family Business of the Year Award and was applauded by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on the exceptional achievement. The winners were chosen by the nationally ranked Rothmans Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship to honor some of the best family organizations in New Jersey.

Each year, the Rothmans Institute reviews hundreds of applications and nominates only 15 companies throughout New Jersey that they feel truly exemplify a successful family business. Those selected make significant contributions to their community and deliver innovative strategies and business practices. Weidel Real Estate comfortably satisfied those requirements.

“A key component of our success has been the quality and dedication of our agents and brokers over the years. They share a unique sense of entrepreneurship and their extensive involvement in their local communities is an ongoing tradition in the Weidel history,” says Richard A. Weidel, Jr, President and CEO of Weidel Real Estate.

A panel of judges comprised of previous winners and members of the business community chose the winners, which were announced on October 14, 2015 at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, New Jersey. For more information on the event or to reach out about your real estate needs, please contact the Weidel Corporate Office at 609-737-1522 or stop by at 2482 Pennington Road, Suite 3, Pennington, NJ 08534.
