Start Your Home Search
During our intro meeting we discuss in-depth, your criteria and vision for a future home and community in Maplewood, South Orange, Montclair or any of the other NJ to NYC commuter towns, while establishing the most important foundation of any relationship - clear communication and mutual understanding that sets the stage for our work together to follow.
Education is power. Throughout the home search process we study market trends in Maplewood, South Orange, Montclair or other NJ to NYC commuter towns of interest, through past, current and predicted outlooks, and apply this info to inventory. This data-based approach yields effective results and supports intelligent decision-making throughout the entire transaction.
Through viewing homes that meet your wants and needs, we learn to employ an educated eye based on the analytics of our market - the New Jersey bedroom communities of NYC. We begin to rely on our knowledge of data from our research, and learn to see past initial impressions, which are not always the most accurate read on a home. This results in a savvy and informed purchase.
Making an Offer & Beyond
Once we find a home that you love in your desired NJ to NYC commuter town, we evaluate it with regards to your criteria and review its value in its particular Essex County market. Based on these considerations we compose a smart, competitive offer package that gives you an edge. Once accepted, I provide strategic options, counsel in negotiations, and offer general support along the way, and beyond.

She is THE BEST.”
