In 1965, Raymond Birchler founded Birchler Realtors, a brokerage focused on the real estate needs of the Jersey shore beach communities. As the years went by and the Birchler team expanded, Birchler Realtors became the go-to real estate office for anyone looking to buy, sell or rent on the Barrier Island.
Years later, the torch was passed to Raymond’s son Eric, who continued the Birchler legacy of personal service, uncompromised integrity, and trusted expertise that only comes from decades of hard work. Eric’s leadership aided in the transition of operating a real estate office in the digital world. A cutting-edge website was developed and technology was implemented throughout the offices in order to improve efficiency and upgrade customer service.
Meanwhile, in 1996, after years of experience owning and operating the Taylor Agency, George Broome founded RE/MAX at Barnegat Bay in Forked River. After the success of this location, offices were opened throughout Ocean County in Manahawkin, Toms River, and LBI providing expert real estate assistance for anyone looking to rent, buy, or sell in Ocean County.
In 2023, Eric joined forces with George under the “Birchler Group” banner closing the real estate circle around the Barnegat Bay. RE/MAX’s brand recognition, combined with George’s industry expertise, made the decision to operate as part of the RE/MAX family an easy one. With over 100-years of combined experience, Birchler Group operates with the same great sales team under the management of Eric.
