RREIN Broker Spotlight: Gloria Nilson Realtors, Real Living – A Rich History Helps Carve a Strong Future
Maria Patterson: Please provide us with a snapshot of your storied real estate career to date. Dick Schlott: I’m a born entrepreneur. Even as a kid, a friend and I would pick raspberries for a farmer who would pay us 10 cents a pint, then we would buy them from him for 20 cents a pint and go sell them around the neighborhood for 50 cents a pint! I guess you could say I took that same spirit and energy to real estate starting in 1969 as a sales associate in Wyckoff, New Jersey, my hometown. I opened my own office with one salesperson in 1971, and opened two more offices in Bergen County, New Jersey, in 1976.
