Since 1961, First Real Estate Investment Trust of New Jersey (FREIT) has been an equity real estate investment trust that takes pride in its investment portfolio. Whether apartment communities, shopping centers and commercial buildings, or mixed-use developments, every project we invest in is for the long-term. This is our focus.

We conduct our operations in compliance with the requirements for qualifying as a real estate investment trust pursuant to the Federal Internal Revenue Code. As a result, we receive favorable tax treatment as provided under the tax code. FREIT has recorded a profit and has paid dividends to its shareholders during each year since its founding.

Our impressive record of performance over the last four decades is a tribute to the outstanding efforts made by Hekemian & Co.,Inc., a real estate management and brokerage company that has managed FREIT's assets since its inception.
