OUR HISTORY
Paramark Real Estate Services was originally founded in 1971 under the name Weis Management Company.  In the early years, we provided residential property management services exclusively to support the affordable housing development of Joe and Gene Weis of Weis Builders.  Eventually, the company grew and branched out into 3rd party residential and commercial fee management.

In early 2006, Weis Management made a strategic move to clear up any brand confusion in the market with its sister company Weis Builders by changing its name to Paragon Property Management.  In late 2006, Paramark was formed through the merger of two well-established real estate service companies: Paragon Property Management and Lanmark Property Advisors.  Founded in 1993, Lanmark Property Advisors provided property management and brokerage services for residential and commercial assets.  In addition, Lanmark provided facility services both within their portfolio, as well as to standalone Facility Services clients.

The merged company selected the name “Paramark” to reflect and retain the strengths, reputation, and legacies of both Paragon and Lanmark.  Today Paramark manages over 5,000 housing units, over 1 million square feet of commercial property, brokers over 60 commercial lease and sale transactions a year, and oversees a portfolio worth $1 Billion in asset value.
