Anthony Ursillo started his real estate career over 40 years ago in Hudson County. After years of working with residential properties, Anthony decided to branch out on his own and create a name for himself in the commercial real estate. What began in a small office on Johnson Avenue in Hackensack, NJ, as a one man show, banging on doors, gradually became a successful commercial real estate company over the next ten years.
The early years proved to be challenging for Anthony as a newcomer to Hackensack. However, he was determined to succeed. His perseverance was best showcased in the business and trust he earned from the developer of a local high-rise apartment building. Anthony met the developer everyday at 7am, bringing coffee with him, to discuss the progress of the project. After several weeks, Anthony had earned the trust, respect, and eventually, the business of the developer.
Soon, Anthony had the reputation of an honest, hard-working commercial real estate broker who went above and beyond for his clients. He help with the site selection, acquisition dollars, and approval process of several unique properties including the first Honda dealership. Three of his earliest multi-family projects (88 Units) still stand today in Little Ferry – Cinnamon Court, Ginger Garden, and Cardamom Lane – a converted bus terminal which was prominently featured in local papers.
Over the years, Ursillo Realty, Inc. has successfully brokered the sale of over 40 acres of land along River St from the Little Ferry Circle to Anderson St, including assembling 13.5 acres that would become known as River Front Plaza. Not only did Anthony successfully assemble and sell the property, he also helped to install the anchor tenant, Shop-Rite. Another prominent brokered deal was the former site of the Sifford Pontiac dealership – a lot totaling almost 8 acres.
Anthony has been active in many associations and organizations throughout the years. From the Rotary Club, 200 Club and the New Jersey Business & Industry Association, Anthony has actively participated in local functions, helping to raise money, generate awareness, and create lasting partnerships and connections. He has also proudly served in leadership positions in the Builder’s Association of Northern New Jersey and most recently, as the President of the Hackensack Regional Chamber of Commerce, which has over 300 members.
