Headquartered in central New Jersey, Edgewood Properties ("Edgewood" or the "Company") is a leading real estate development and property management company with several million square feet of retail/commercial space, over 3,000 apartments and various for sale communities, existing and/or under construction throughout New Jersey. Founded on the principles of family tradition, superior design and great customer service, the Company supports its aggressive growth via in-house engineering, architecture, leasing/sales & marketing, excavation, legal and property management departments. For further Company background, please visit our website www.edgewoodproperties.com.


Given ongoing construction and development plans, our current apartment portfolio of 3,000 plus units is expected to double in the next couple of years and rise to over 10,000 units in the next five years. Given our rapid portfolio growth, coupled with ownership's desire to develop and hold rather than sell, the timing is ideal for qualified candidates to come onboard.


Edgewood is currently seeking an experienced Sr. Accountant with a SOLID STRAIGHT-UP ACCOUNTING and DIVERSE INDUSTRY (clientele) in CPA ACCOUNTING.



This is a real "head in the books" accounting position making accounting sense of over 270 separate business entities and more than 50 bank accounts.  The successful candidate will have a few years of CPA - type general accounting experience after college graduation along with the maturity and dedicated focus in accounting in multi-tasking for alll our entities and bank accounts. It can't hurt to have been exposed to real estate development and property management from a client relationship at a CPA firm.  You do not necessarily need to be a property management accountant or controller aspirant focused more on the financial aspects rather than the accounting nitty-gritty day to day. In fact, we would prefer someone with and understanding of our industry, rather than someone totally imersed in it.


The following are among the overall responsibilities:


  • Insurance
  • Tax Return Prep
  • Financial Statement Prep
  • Monthly Construction Draws
  • HomeOwners Associations
  • Monthly/Quarterly Sales Tax Filings
  • Tax Appeals Interrogatories
  • Review 1099's
  • Expense/Deposit Coding
  • Monthly Cash Books
  • Internal Control Audit Lead
  • Assit Controller, CFO, President as required
  • Maintain Master Entity and Tax Control Schedules


BS in Accounting + 2-4 years previous experience as an Accounting Manager, preferably in a CPA role having been exposed to Real Estate Development and or Property Management client work as part of a larger portfolio.



In return, we offer competitive compensation, along with comprehensive benefits, including medical and dental and vision benefits, life insurance, a 401(k) with company match and a corporate team environment. For immediate consideration, please apply online or email your resume with salary requirements directly to info@edgewoodproperties.com

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or protected veteran status.
