For nearly 50 years, two generations of the Gardner family have made their mark on residential and commercial development throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The family's tradition of building excellence began in 1965, when Larry Gardner left a promising career on Wall Street forthe opportunity he saw in New Jersey real estate. He founded Larken Associates and remains its Chairman. Continuing the family tradition, his son David joined Larken Associates in the mid-1980s and is the company's President and Chief Executive Officer.
Each generation of the Gardner family shares a deeply ingrained, unique business philosophy that encourages creative planning and innovative thinking. Their philosophy rewards fine workmanship and rejects compromises where quality is concerned. It looks beyond the next home sale or execution of the next commercial lease to create trust and satisfaction with each customer to establish them as a client in the future.
Throughout the company's history, Larry and David Gardner have assembled a team of experienced professionals who share their goals and have made Larken Associates one of New Jersey's fastest growing and most well-respected real estate firms.
