First Horizon Realty Past and Present

Stephen Y. Blauvelt and Anthony M. Bruno founded First Horizon Realty Corp in mid summer of 1983 after having served apprenticeships with a local real estate firm. Both are licensed real estate brokers and licensed builders in the State of New Jersey as well. In 1983, the Blauvelt family purchased the building where it is presently located on the busy state highway 35 corridor which distributes the Jersey Shore summer traffic to popular Jersey Shore communities like Avon-By-The-Sea to Belmar to Ocean Counties and Asbury Park.
The Blauvelt family history can be traced back to the early Jersey Shore and Shark River Hills, Neptune Township, New Jersey history which pre-dates all early Monmouth County, New Jersey residential development and settlement.
 
Upon opening the doors for business, both Blauvelt and Bruno were among the youngest of real estate associates and brokers to be part of the Monmouth County Board of Realtors, South Monmouth County Board of Realtors and the Monmouth County Multiple Listing Service. Unlike today’s sophisticated computerized method of information disbursement, in those days the daily listing feed was supplied by courier consisting of hard copy reproductions of current property for sale.
 
First Horizon Realty Corp. is a multi functional real estate business handling real estate transactions ranging from residential sales, to commercial sales to leasing to short sale and foreclosure workouts to new construction and business property. Over the years, First Horizon Realty has been involved in hundreds and hundreds of real estate transactions in the State of New Jersey. Today’s company real estate associates consist of a star studded field of accomplished individuals whose own stories can be viewed in our about us testimonials.
