On the Move
Buschman Partners, the Lenox Drive-based commercial real estate firm that has been operating in central New Jersey since 1984, has made a strategic alliance with the GVA Williams New Jersey organization, which is based in Parsippany and is strong in North Jersey. A new name and website is expected to be announced.
Previously allied with Insignia/ESG, Buschman Partners ended that association when Insignia merged with CB Richard Ellis. “We are delighted to announce this very exciting strategic alliance, with GVA Williams New Jersey,” says Buschman. “Their firm has built a very formidable operating platform with tremendous talent, depth and resources.”
With more than 250 professionals in the Tri-State region, GVA Williams manages more than 200 commercial properties, and it is a founding partner of GVA Worldwide, which has members in 27 countries serving markets.
“We are honored to be partnering with one of Princeton’s true pioneers and the team of highly respected real estate and business professionals,” says Eric Witmondt, CEO of GVA Williams New Jersey.
