For 50 years, Balistreri Realty has been
providing buyers, sellers and developers of properties superior real estate
services and a whole lot more—including relocation services, mortgages, and
title insurance. Our dramatic growth locally has allowed us to expand
our market and our products and services regionally, nationally and
Joseph S. Balistreri, who had relocated his
family and real estate business from Wisconsin to South Florida, established
the company—then operating as Joseph S. Balistreri, Inc.—as primarily a
residential brokerage in Pompano Beach in 1964. After initial careers in the
military and in construction management, his sons Joe and Jim earned their real
estate credentials and joined the firm.
In 1991, Joseph S. Balistreri retired. Joe
and Jim, by then seasoned veterans in the business, bought the firm. They
renamed it Balistreri Realty, and immediately set about its growth,
building rapidly on the foundation their father had established.
Under their stewardship, Balistreri Realty went
from a 65-Associate sales force in one location to a 225-Associate sales force
in four regional sales centers, each with a veteran, top-producing sales
manager at the helm.
They created an in-house marketing/media
relations department to provide maximum exposure and support for the
company’s associates and their customers.
They added the “one-stop-shopping” concept
to Balistreri Realty to the firm's business practice, putting under one roof
real estate-related services clients might need—relocation and vacation-home
services through Leading Real Estate Companies of the World™, and Realty Referral Network®; title insurance and closing services through
Integrity Title; and mortgage financing through Academy Mortgage.
Joe and Jim expanded the company’s scope of
service to include commercial and business-opportunity brokerage, as well as
new-development and multiunit sales.
They also initiated a rigorous training and
professional-development program to upgrade Associates’ skills and give them a
competitive edge in all aspects of real estate.
State-of-the-art technology is standard in each
well-appointed Balistreri Realty office; Sales Associates have
instant access to the information they need to be even more productive and competitive.
Today, Balistreri Realty is a recognized leader
in the real estate market, in South Florida and beyond, both for our superior
service to clients and for the heavy investment we make in the professionalism
and entrepreneurial success of our Sales Associates.
