In 2019, Jordan Baris, Inc. REALTORS® affiliated with Real Living Real Estate and rebranded as Jordan Baris, Inc. REALTORS® Real Living. Ken Baris, president of the New Jersey-based brokerage, calls it “the most aggressive and exciting decision we have made since the company was founded in 1952.”
In addition to fully embracing the Real Living infrastructure, the company has become a developer for the entire New York metropolitan area, which includes significant territory in portions of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
“Now we will be growing our core business by expanding current offices and opening new ones, acquiring firms, partnering with ‘Net Branches’ and selling franchises,” explains Baris. “Having an extraordinary team is what has put us in the position to have this opportunity and to be able to fully capitalize on it.”
Baris, himself, is a dynamic leader who works hard to propel the brokerage and honor his father, industry icon and company founder, Jordan Baris. He says, “My role is to make a difference in our growing organization each and every day. The key to making this happen is to Envision, Empower and Energize our team.”
Baris, who's frequently in the media and a popular speaker at industry events, has also sat on numerous boards and won industry awards.
“The real estate brokerage industry is like an amazing canvas with unlimited opportunity through the use of vision, creativity, expression and commitment,” says Baris. “I strive to enhance our canvas every day.”
