About the Builder

The Atkins Companies is an industry-leading, award-winning, New Jersey-based real estate organization active in the development and management of high-quality residential, retail and commercial properties throughout New Jersey and beyond.

Founded in 1949 by family patriarch S. Stephen Atkins, the company has its roots in residential building. Steve was one of the early post-World War II developers, putting in long hours to acquire land and build his hard-earned reputation. Today, Steve’s sons—Jack, Chick and Bob—and his grandson, Cory, continue the tradition in embracing the company’s high standards of integrity, hard work and ethical conduct. Building everything from starter homes to expansive custom estates, the Atkins family is committed to its homebuyers and cares about their satisfaction. This approach to building—with heart—is what has propelled the Atkins Companies to success.

Over the course of more than six decades, the company has kept pace with the demands of an ever-changing marketplace and has expanded into specialty markets. In addition to its residential communities, the company now manages more than a million square feet of space, including medical office facilities, retail, and mixed-use residential/commercial development.

Proud of the longevity of the family enterprise, the company is equally committed to preserving the core values which have been a mainstay of the organization: quality performance, integrity, a cutting-edge approach to development, and advancing not just the growth, but the betterment of the communities that it serves.
