As a resident of Montclair since 1979, and having recently made an empty nest move to our new home over the hill in Cedar Grove, I am intimately familiar with all of West Essex County and love sharing this knowledge with newcomers in all price ranges. Before settling in Montclair, I had moved 13 times in 40 years, and I truly enjoy introducing my buyer customers to the variety of housing and locale options available in this wonderful community.
With over 25 years experience as a real estate sales consultant, my focus has been on being an educator, a negotiator and a problem solver. I work as an advocate for sellers, helping them understand the current market conditions. I introduce them to our innovative marketing process so they can make sound business decisions. I have a proven track record in guiding my clients in achieving the highest selling price for their home, regardless of the market.
Other Awards and Recognitions
I have consistently been in the top quarter of all realtors in New Jersey in terms of production since becoming a licensed realtor in 1980. I spent the first 28 years of my career with Schweppe & Co., Montclair's leading broker. In 2003, Schweppe & Co. was acquired by Burgdorff Realtors which in 2009 was merged into Coldwell Banker. In the first quarter of 2010, I was excited to rejoin many of my original colleagues at the new Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty office in Montclair, a boutique company operating under a global umbrella.
I am a member of the New Jersey Association of Realtors (NJAR), and a recipient of the NJAR Circle of Excellence award since 1981. Other memberships include the NJAR Distinguished Sales Club, the Garden State Multiple Listing Service, the New Jersey Multiple Listing Service, and the West Essex Board of Realtors.
My hobbies include travel, photography, gardening and meeting all my interesting and diverse customers and clients. As Mary Schweppe, founder of Schweppe & Co. used to say - "Everyone is Special to Us".
