Charles and Mildred Schlosser purchase the southwest corner of President and Grand Central Aves. in Lavallette, a small family resort town with a year-round population that has grown to 287 after having benefitted in recent years with such amenities as electricity, running water, a natural gas line and a sewage system.
Charles, a mechanic, opens two garages to house the summer visitors’ automobiles that cross to the shore over the narrow wooden bridge which serves as the connection between the mainland and the shore. He develops and manufactures the tools necessary to keep those automobiles in tip top shape and sells the gasoline with which to get the visitors back home after the summer.
Armed with a business degree, skilled in bookkeeping and shorthand, Mildred Schlosser opens Schlosser Real Estate. With a typewriter, carbon paper for copies, an operator assisted telephone party line, fountain pen, paper and pencil she forges ahead with her fledgling business. . .
And thus began the Schlosser Real Estate Story 90 years ago.
