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-1980's 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; one that rewards fine workmanship and rejects compromises where quality is concerned, a policy of looking beyond the next home sale or execution of the next commercial lease, to creating trust and satisfaction with each customer to establish them as a client in the future.
Throughout Larken’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 well-respected real estate companies.
