Bergman Real Estate Group marks 30-year anniversary
WOODBRIDGE, NJ — What started as a one-off purchase in Houston, TX 30 years ago, Bergman Real Estate Group has grown into a 32-employee- strong firm with over 2.25 million s/f and 18 suburban office properties throughout the Garden State. This year marks three decades since Jerome Bergman bought that first property, as he and his sons, Michael and Steven, worked tirelessly to grow the family-owned and managed real estate business into the full-service firm it is today. “An incredible amount has changed in real estate over the past 30 years,” said Michael Bergman, CEO and president of Bergman Real Estate Group. “We’ve experienced the highs of the late ‘90s through the mid-2000s, the lows of the 2008 recession, and the steady growth since, and have come out stronger and more experienced from all of it.” As one of the founding members of global real estate development firm Tishman Speyer Properties and a 32-year veteran of acquiring and managing property for national real estate firms, Jerry Bergman tapped into his experience to purchase his first garden apartment property in 1988.
