Alan Ellenbogen

    • Alan, Nancy and their team are exceptional real estate professionals with knowledge of the Bloomfield housing market. From the beginning of the process to the very end they were there to make selling our family home as easy and painless as possible. Their marketing plan which included staging, a professional photo shoot and a narrated video, helped us sell our home the night of the first open house for above asking price. Alan and his team are dedicated and caring individuals. A special thank you goes to Connie for being patient, understanding and willing to communicate our needs with the buyer's agent and lawyer. We highly recommend Alan and his team!!! Thank you again, Mary Jo and Vinnie

    • From the decision to sell our house and signing a contract with Alan Ellenbogen to the conclusion of the sale of the house, Alan was thoroughly honest and truly an expert in Realestate. Within a week of the house being on the market we received an acceptable offer. Alan worked tirelessly to accommodate both the sellers and the buyers. He coordinated the several items required to conclude the sale within the buyers loan time frame. Alans connections with expert craftsmen and his ability to coordinate inspections was impressive. Without Alan Ellenbogens tireless efforts this sale would not have been completed on time.

    • We had a really great experience working with Team Ellenbogen. We were looking in the Bloomfield area and found them to be extremely knowledgeable. We didn't feel any pressure with Alan and Nancy- it was a painless experience throughout the entire process. Thank you, Alan and Nancy!

    • We couldn't have made a better choice to sell our home. Alan's guidance and advice were priceless in preparing our home for sale. He saved us quite a bit of money by directing us where to spend, (and not spend) our dollars to fix up the property before it went on the market. Most importantly, he priced our home perfectly. It sold in 8 days. During the period we were under contract, Alan "held our hand" through every phase, from inspection through closing. He was extremely attentive to our needs and concerns throughout the entire process, and always made us feel that we were his favorite and most important client. When necessary, Alan worked with our attorney to make sure all went well. In addition, he referred us to the highest quality contractors, who gave us very reasonable prices to take care of necessary repairs both before the sale and to respond to the demands for repairs received from the buyers after the inspection. Without a doubt, we would make the same choice if we had to do it all over again.

    • I recently sold my parents home in Glen Ridge, NJ with Alan Ellenbogen as my realtor. He came to me at a time when I was a bit overwhelmed with the whole process, knowing my parents home needed some much needed TLC before sale. He was extremely knowledgeable and had the right resources and contacts who were able to start the renovation process immediately and get it done quickly, professionally and beautifully. The home renovation exceeded all expectations that I had ever dreamed possible and was extremely worth the money invested. What was admirable in the renovation process was that Alan knew exactly what the home would need and knew what would give me a return on my investment and what would not. Alan also works with a design team who then stages the home and are experts in the field of making the home look amazing. They also have a natural talent of bringing out the genuine beauty and architecture of the home. Alan then used his expertise in marketing the home. Multiple offers were made the first week and the home sold above asking price, allowing me to recoup all of the money I invested in the renovations. It was a great pleasure to work with Alan. He was extremely quick to answer my phone calls and texts and always very concerned about how I felt about the whole process from beginning to end. He acted quickly when problems arose and continuously made my concerns a top priority. His main work ethic is to always be there for the client and I felt he was consistently on my side working hard for my rights, making it a number one priority that I get the absolute best outcome in the sale of the house. His kindness and humor are one of a kind and I highly recommend his services to anyone who has a home to sell.

    • To make a long story short - two years and countless houses later, and with searches that went beyond the area of focus for their business - I eventually purchased a home that met my needs & budget. Fast response, very experienced, extremely knowledgeable, very professional with a large network of resources for their clients. A superb team

    • Alan and Team Ellenbogen recognized and shared our vision of the uniqueness of our home. Team Ellenbogens marketing presentation was phenomenal - highlighting the character of our house and property. The combination of the marketing and staging far exceeded our expectations and brought in many interested prospective buyers and solid offers. Alans expertise guided us through the process every step of the way - from preparation, staging, through attorney review and to the closing. We strongly recommend Alan!

    • Thanks to Alan and Nancy, my fiance and I are now proud homeowners. They are both extremely kind and knowledgeable and made the entire process easy and enjoyable. We had a thousand questions and concerns as this was our first time buying a home, but they guided us every step of the way. They took their time to answer each question and put every concern we had at ease. We highly recommend them!

    • We started our search for a first home with an innocent prompt on Zillow. What we received was a wonderful guide who trekked us through each step of the arduous process that is buying a home. Nancy's patience in providing us with answers to the many, many questions we had was invaluable. We certainly couldn't have found our home if it wasn't for her guidance. We're forever thankful for her efforts and expertise!

    • Alan & Nancy I dont think we can ever thank you guys enough or give you the review you both deserve. The time and professionalism you both give is outstanding. My wife and myself felt like we had been brought in to your family and well taken care of. The talent and experience you both brought forth was second to none. Your local knowledge priceless and most wanted. And because of it we are now 1st time homeowners in the most perfect house we could ever dream of. I wish anyone reading this to seriously consider this pair I honestly believe you will not find anything or anyone better

    • We had an extremely positive experience working with Nancy Oppenheimer-Ellenbogen and Alan Ellenbogen. We were first time homebuyers, trying to navigate an aggressive sellers market at the time. Nancy and Alan were wonderful about guiding and advising us, but doing so in a way that never felt pushy or put-on. They know the Bloomfield/Glen Ridge/Montclair market extremely well, down to every unique little neighborhood within the towns. They ultimately found us a beautiful home that we love, and we didn't overpay for either (even in the sellers market). Nancy was our primary point of contact, and she was very responsive to our texts and phone calls, getting back to us quickly every time even if it was outside typical "business hours." She was patient in answering all our questions about the process, and wonderful to talk through decisions with. She was also just a delight to be around. Nancy and Alan built a team around us (mortgage broker, home inspector, etc.) who all were wonderful in their respective responsibilities/jobs, and worked seamlessly together. Above all, Nancy & Alan are good people... something that can be in short supply in the world of real estate. We felt that they really cared about us as people, and from beginning to end had our best interest at heart. We would recommend them highly!!!

    • Alan and Nancy, what a team. They took the time to really get to know our home and my family. Their dedication and passion is refreshing. They use the perfect narrative when putting our home up online and the house was sold within the time frame that they provided. They ensured all aspects of the sale were well coordinated including the staging, open houses, walk thru and turn over. I would 100000% recommend them on both sides of the transaction

    • Once again, Alan and Nancy delivered. We have sold several homes with their assistance and like always, we had multiple offers and sold over asking. Their intimate knowledge of the market, realistic price expectations and their overall lovely demeanor makes the whole process - start to finish - as easy as it can be. I would highly recommend them to everyone!

    • I think back often to the day when I was on the subway platform debating whether or not to call your office. We were already working with a realtor but Massimo insisted. He said "Call, we have nothing to lose. Alan looks like a nice person. The house looks nice and could be good for us". I reluctantly called, but was immediately comforted with Alan's kind tone and his rapidity in connecting me to you (Nancy). Immediately, you took us under your wing. Offering us advice, giving us space to feel comfortable to make an offer, and properly warning us of houses that would not be a good fit for us. Through your patience and expert knowledge of your field, you guided us weekend after weekend to see houses, make offers, and just get to know Bloomfield better. Not only were you a true professional, but you showed your personable side by wishing us well wishes for the birth of our son, giving Maxime a bag when she was playing with the rocks at the house at Beekman street, and overall just trying to get to know us as individuals and a family.You made us feel valued, safe, and most importantly we trusted you with what was a big step for our family: buying our first home. When you advised us to go see Clarendon, I was getting increasingly worried about our situation. But as always, you assuaged our fears and encouraged us to be positive. The house immediately spoke to us. We loved the character, the proximity to downtown, and the fact that there were extra rooms for us. Through the arduous process of offer, acceptance, attorney review, etc. you stood by us and advocated for us, helping to create a strategy that was beneficial to all parties. Through my (incessant) emails, you were always quick to respond with the right words to make us feel confident with this sale. For all of your hard work, your time, your expertise we are eternally grateful. We hope that you will both remain in our lives as more than our realtors. The closing could not have come at a better time. Last Thursday, I was working on a difficult case and stayed at the office later than usual. I usually am home by 5:00pm with the kids but that day I was running late. I, and the kids, arrived home at around 6:00pm and I was greeted by dozens of firemen, concerned neighbors, and random people asking me if I lived in apartment 5G. I was startled and confused, but I maintained my composure for the kids. I went upstairs to look at the apartment, leaving Maxime to play with the cops and Gaetano to be cooed by our neighbor. Our apartment had been burned and destroyed by a fire. A million things ran through my mind, but fortunately, I was able to grab our passports which had not been destroyed and Maxime's favorite book which was charred by the fire. Otherwise, we had nothing. No clothes, no breast pump, nothing. From Thursday night until now as I am typing this, we have been staying in a hotel. Last night we showed Maxime and Gaetano the kids to their new house and talked to them about the new adventure and experience they will have living in their very own house in Bloomfield. Reading your lovely note last night, we were once again reminded of your kindness, thoughtfulness, and dedication to us. Thank you for the lovely note and gift card! It's safe to say that we left NYC with a bang! We could not have done this without you. We are forever grateful, and we hope to have you over for a nice glass of wine and Massimo's fabulous cooking. Thank you again and I know we will see you soon.

    • Alan delivers with a professional stager, a professional photographer, online home tour, advice on home improvements, and a clear marketing strategy that will get your home sold fast. Our house went into a competitive bidding war before even scheduling an open house.
