History of the Board



The Gloucester County Board of REALTORS® is a vibrant and forward moving organization serving the public of Gloucester County and surrounds since the late 1930’s.

From the time when William R. Storrie was the first president, the Gloucester County Board has grown from a small group of REALTORS® who often met for lunch at the Homestead restaurant in Woodbury, to a large and progressive board.

The public well remembers many of the original members and officers who served with the Gloucester County Board, such as “Oats” Holston, the Crist brothers Ed and Sam, P. Mason Fox, Ada E. Wilkins, Lawrence J. Darms, Pearl Budd Coy, William Finger and Elizabeth H. Worthington.  It is a tribute to Gloucester County to have had these and other fine members serve with honor the board and the public.

A new group of officers, under the past leadership of Jack Green, George Koelmel, William DeLaney, Jack Darms, Nort Worthington and many others, had come forward to keep pace with the times.  The Gloucester County Board developed a modern multiple listing service to offer the public, with competence and a high standard of business ethics.

With Presidents Harry Wohlfarth and John Gligor, the Board began to look for permanent headquarters.  On July 2, 1980, settlement was made on a building in Mantua, New Jersey under the leadership of President Dena Green Kimmerley.

Through the efforts of Gloucester Board President, Rick Zammer, and Salem County Board President, Tom Moulder, the merger of the Gloucester and Salem Boards were approved on November 6, 1991 by the National Association of REALTORS®.  We are now known as the Gloucester Salem Counties Board of REALTORS®.

The Gloucester Salem Counties Board of REALTORS® is a partner of the National Association of REALTORS®, and all members abide by its strict Code of Ethics.  We are also a shareholder of the Trend Multiple Listing Service, which is comprised of 14 counties in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
