Pat Bell's relationship with Gloria Nilson began in 2000, when GMAC acquired Gloria Nilson Realtors of New Jersey and appointed Ms. Bell as President and CEO of Gloria Nilson GMAC Real Estate. In 2009, Brookfield RPS purchased GMAC and subsequently sold the Gloria Nilson division to Dick Schlott. After the sale, Ms. Bell continued on as President of the newly created entity, Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate. For well over a decade, Ms. Bell has dedicated herself to the growth and expansion of the Gloria Nilson brand. Under her thoughtful leadership, the company has successfully expanded to 20 offices with over 700 sales associates.
Ms. Bell began her management career in mid-1970, when she owned her own real estate company in Princeton Junction, NJ. In 1985, she sold her business to Schlott Realtors and remained to manage their Princeton Junction Branch. With her guidance, the office became one of the top producing offices in the Schlott organization. In 1991, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage purchased Schlott Realtors, and Ms. Bell was named Regional Vice President of the new organization. Her territory became one of the top 10 countrywide Coldwell Banker regions, and in 1999, she was promoted to Senior Vice President. Soon after, she joined GMAC as Senior Vice President.
During her tenure with GMAC Real Estate, Ms. Bell was selected to be the President and CEO of their New England Company, EMRE, with over 60 offices in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, as well as the Gloria Nilson division. She continued this dual presidency until November 2004, at which time she resigned her position at EMRE in order to focus exclusively on Gloria Nilson.
With over 40 years in the real estate business, Dick Schlott is a well-known and highly regarded professional in the industry. He founded Schlott Realtors in 1971 and grew it to 140 offices and 4,500 salespeople across 5 States with over $7 Billion in sales. Schlott also developed the Home Mortgage Network before selling Schlott Realtors to Coldwell Banker in the early 1990s.
Schlott then ran the ERA Franchise system until its sale to Cendant in the mid-1990s. He moved on to develop GMAC Home Services and served as President and CEO from the late 1990s through early 2001. During this time, one of the purchases he made for the company was that of Gloria Nilson Realtors.
After leaving GMAC, Schlott purchased The Bernards Inn in Bernardsville, NJ.
However, Schlott's dedication to the real estate business could not keep him away for long, and he is once again involved with a company he helped grow, in an industry he knows so well.
