Operating out of Pennsburg, Brode and Brooks, Inc. Realtors is a local real estate agency serving Montgomery, Bucks, Lehigh, Berks and Chester counties in Pennsylvania. Brode and Brooks realtors assist with the purchase or lease of commercial & industrial, land or residential real estate, helping clients navigate every step of the property marketing and transaction details.
The founders operated two separate real estate agencies in 1945. Given their core strengths of industry expertise, integrity and building relationships the two agencies joined forces in the 1980s to become Brode and Brooks, Inc. Realtors. Today’s owners, Ed Brooks and Steve Rothenberger, shared more of the Brode and Brooks story.
“The Brode and Brooks team of agents have grown up and raised their families in this local area. With their years of experience, many Brode and Brooks agents have worked to assist in the sale and purchase of homes or property with multiple generations of families,” Brooks noted.
Combining their years of service with a strong network of connections to the community, Brode and Brooks agents have a wealth of local property knowledge to share with their customers. Steve Rothenberger currently sits on the Board for Upper Hanover Township and has previously served on the Upper Perkiomen Chamber of Commerce, United Way, and the YMCA’s Board of Directors. Other agents serve the community through Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Logan’s Heroes and other non-profit organizations.
“We know it here. We live here. We were raised here. Nobody knows this area better,” Rothenberger states.
Brode and Brooks realtors work to fulfill dreams and find the perfect answer to the needs of their clients, whether it be the sale or lease of commercial & industrial, land or residential property.
“I get the most thrill in helping young couples buy their first house. It’s really gratifying when you see a young couple achieve their dream,” Rothenberger shared.
For Brooks, who specializes in commercial real estate, there is a different passion in helping clients grow their business.
“I really enjoy the clients that have very difficult requirements. When it’s a challenging assignment, it peaks my interest to find the solution to the specific needs they’ve presented,” he states.
Brode and Brooks is currently spearheading the HomeTown project, marketing to developers for a site approved for 152 residential lots. While the land is in a rural location, there is an industrial park within 10 miles–an ideal site to develop a new neighborhood. And recently, Brode and Brooks completed the sale of 19 industrial acres located on Leesport Avenue outside of Reading, Pennsylvania for $2,450,000.
Always seeking growth, Brode and Brooks is looking for new agents—offering a mentorship program for those who need an experienced mentor to guide them into the full knowledge of the real estate business.
“All of our agents are very ethical and experienced. In this business, those two qualities are basically priceless,” states Brooks.
To be served by one of the most knowledgeable real estate agencies in the local area, visit Brode and Brooks, Inc. Realtors at their office in Pennsburg.
