When Ben Beiler began his real estate career with Jim Arnold in the white building at the intersection of Route 1 and 41 in the early 1970’s, they had a handful of agents and an aspiration to grow the business one customer at a time, with a commitment to treat everyone with respect and loyalty.

Today, Beiler-Campbell Realtors is led and owned by Anthony Beiler and Brian Campbell and is celebrating its 50th anniversary as one of the leading real estate companies in southern Chester and Lancaster Counties.
Ben purchased the company - then known as Arnoldmont Realty - in 1973. Brian Campbell joined the business in 1979 and later became partners with Ben. Ten years later, Ben’s son Anthony Beiler joined the company and later became partners with Brian. Beiler-Campbell expanded to offer appraisals and opened additional offices in Kennett Square, Oxford and Quarryville. A Farm and Land Division and Auction Services were added that serves throughout western Pennsylvania and northern Maryland, as well as a Commercial Division. Recognizing the needs of clients to have access to all transaction services under one roof, Beiler-Campbell also founded a title company – Anvil Land Transfer – and a mortgage company – Delaware Valley Financial Mortgage.

Over half a century, Beiler-Campbell has helped thousands of families, individuals and businesses open the door to a new chapter of their lives and their livelihoods. Every transaction, every handshake, every late-night phone call with a client and every closing when keys are handed to a new homeowner, stems from the vision that Ben Beiler had to build a company that could serve the community with excellence. “My father already had a lot of connections in the community – particularly in the dairy business – and what he saw early on was the natural gravitation of people who wished to move from the eastern part of the Route 1 Corridor to the western part,” said Anthony Beiler, President of Beiler-Campbell.

Anthony Beiler is quick to acknowledge that their years of growth wouldn’t be possible without their clients and their team of agents. “We never forget that we owe our growth to the efforts of each team member, our families, and our clients,” he said. “We are grateful for the trust our clients placed in us over the years. We have a responsibility to hold ourselves to high professional standards in conduct, speech and attitude.”

As in nearly every facet of modern life, the real estate industry has evolved to a streamlined world of communication and online transactions. Beiler-Campbell has mastered the art of utilizing forward edge technology while nurturing the face-to-face per- sonal connection that clients desire. “We stay on the forward edge of technology,” said Board Chairman Brian Campbell. “We provide our agents with the current tools, resources, experience, and knowledge for them to succeed, but so much more importantly, it begins by hiring the right individuals. We have been blessed along the way by these phenomenal people, some of whom have been with us for as long as 40 years. We treat everyone in our company like they are a member of our family. We help them to succeed, we bring continued education to them, and we want them to know their field. If you are able to build trust with your clients, develop authentic relationships and are excellent in your field, you will thrive.”

There is an intangible linked to the growth Beiler-Campbell has experienced over the last six decades that may not be named in the sales projections or end-of-the year financial reports. Nonetheless, it has become the fabric of the company. “I give a lot of credit to my father, because his philosophy was always to maintain a high level of integrity, serve the people and place their needs above our own,” Beiler said. “The culture of service and support has been strengthened as like- minded individuals joined the team over the years. We have an outstanding management team that share in the vision that we are customer-based. We start by building a relationship with our client, understanding what they are looking for, and then serving their needs – all with a high level of service and integrity. It’s not about pushing transactions through, rather building relationships in the community. Being a locally owned company gives us the heightened responsibility to do business in a way that benefits our entire community.”
Soon after Campbell began at the company in 1979, he learned a lasting lesson from Ben Beiler. “He gave me great counsel and mentorship,” he said. “I remember one challenging transaction Ben told me, ‘Ask yourself, ‘What is right and what is wrong?’ I was a young guy just starting in the business and Ben demonstrated that it is about doing the right thing based on Christian principles. He always said that if we take care of people with exquisite service, the rest will take care of itself.”

From management to the sales agents to the administrative staff, “we have a remarkable company culture, and we all support each other,” said Marketing Director Kristine Pirrung. “We celebrate our individual milestones and are also there for each other when someone is going through a challenge. Beiler-Campbell has an atmosphere of positivity – a feeling of wanting the best for each other and the people we serve.”

The commitment that Beiler-Campbell has for the community goes far beyond real estate. It’s a priority to Beiler-Campbell to give back to the community. It’s common to see them coaching youth sports, volunteering for local organizations, serving on local non-profit and civic boards and in places of faith. In addition to sponsoring a variety of local teams, community events and groups, the company holds two annual charity events: a Day of Service with Food Drive and a Charity Golf Tournament. The Day of Service’s goal is to serve local homeowners who need a helping hand and non-profits. They go into the local community to help with lawn care, painting, building, cleaning, repairing.

The annual Charity Golf Tournament is generously sponsored by local businesses and private individuals and donates upwards of $40,000 to local nonprofits every year. “Years ago, Ben suggested that managers and owners get involved with one or two nonprofits, so the call from him was to give back to our community,” Campbell said. “While it sounds great that we are serving, whatever we give, we get back ten-fold. The joy and spirit of helping others becomes a feeling that we treasure.” “For the past 50 years, the staff and agents at Beiler-Campbell have been honored to be a part of what is often the most important transaction in a client’s life.

“For the seller, their home has rewarded them and opens the next chapter of their lives, and on the buyer’s side, they are equally as excited to begin the next chapter of their own journey,” Campbell said. “To know that we have been the fabric that helped make that happen continues to bring us great joy.”
