Prudential GOS, Blonsky Agree to Partner
Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders and George Blonsky will work together for clients seeking consultation, development and supervision for real estate project development and asset management.
William P. Saunders Jr. and Kay Beran, of Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders Inc., and Blonsky, principal of Keystone Co., recently made that announcement.
Blonsky will serve as the coordinator for real estate projects and development for Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders. His expertise in the area is well known from his 20-year association with Pinehurst Inc. and Club Corp of America, where he served as senior vice president of real estate and project development.
In that capacity, he was responsible for the operations of real estate projects and capital construction projects. He administered the planning, development, financing, marketing, sales, operations and management of land development and construction projects in the United States, totaling more than $237 million, a news release said. Local projects he administered were Pinehurst Resort and Country Club construction and renovations, Pinewild Country Club, Pinehurst No. 8 development, Fairwoods on Seven, Fairwoods Estates, Club Corp Realty and Pinehurst Acquisition Realty.
"Our first venture will be the acquisition and development of the 545 Bennett Street townhome development, a proposed 36-unit mixed-use development located between Broad and Bennett streets in downtown Southern Pines," Blonsky said. "Our second will be the planning of an 80-acre tract in the Eastwood area of estate-sized properties."
Blonsky will coordinate these activities from the Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders Southern Pines office at the corner of Illinois Avenue and Broad Street.
"Aligning our two companies is the next step in growing our business and enhancing the quality of our service in this field," Beran said. "We have compatible visions and progressive growth-oriented operating styles. We benefit from the power of the Prudential name, and as a company of Prudential Financial, Prudential Real Estate and Relocation Services Inc. has the same qualities of 'strength, integrity and trust' -- which reflects Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders' own service philosophy.
"We look forward to the added benefits of this strategic move, and are confident this partnership will greatly enhance the excellent reputations that both companies already have for satisfying clients."
Prudential Gouger O'Neal & Saunders is a 39-year-old company that became a Prudential Real Estate affiliate in November 1995. Gouger O'Neal & Saunders has been in the residential and commercial real estate business since 1971.
