Nancy Chu
Keller Williams NJ Metro Group
About Nancy

Nancy is a Partner in ChuBaldwinHomes at Keller Williams NJ Metro Group – Essex County’s #1 brokerage office again in 2018 -- and has been a real estate professional since 2005. A consistent top producer in Northern NJ, she is skillful in a wide range of deal-making - from 1-bedroom condos to luxury homes to investment properties. While based in Essex County, she is intrepid by nature and has developed a regionally-based business by selling in Essex, Bergen, Union, Morris, and Passaic Counties and beyond…in Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, and Somerset, too. “My primary goal is to explore the towns of Northern NJ, and to hone my expertise in all these areas. I think that real estate, like the rest of the world, is becoming more global, and so I feel that I must expand my approach both my world-view and my areas of business. My job is to listen closely to my client’s need, and because I have a wide knowledge base of the area, I have a better chance of helping them find the neighborhood they want to be in faster. There is nothing more satisfying than putting a family in the perfect home.” Nancy, who is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, cultivated a love for real estate when she helped her parents find their perfect home in Tennessee at age 16, and has not been able to stop following the real estate market since, owning a number of co-ops and condos in New York City, seven homes in Essex County as a serial renovator, leading to her present home in Livingston, and recently building a vacation getaway in upstate New York. Prior to real estate, Nancy spent 7 years in the Department of Ophthalmology at New York University School of Medicine. In addition, as a stage director, her work has been seen at The Public Theatre, Long Wharf Theatre, The Lucille Lortel Foundation, Columbia University, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Second Stage Theatre, and The Culture Project, to name a few. She is a member of several prestigious institutions, such as The Womens Project Productions and the Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab. She continues to direct occasionally with what little spare time she has left, as well as hanging out with her lovely husband, Raf Ricci, also a Realtor, and fabulous 14-year-old son, Declan. Nancy knows that her own fascination with real estate and her strong professional background translates perfectly into helping her clients find their dream homes.

Victoria Carter
Weichert, Realtors
About Victoria

I have been a resident of New Jersey since 1994 and a professional in the real estate industry since 1998. I am absolutely thrilled that I have not only succeeded but climbed up the ranks of the real estate industry over the course of my career. In 2017, 2016 and 2015, I was the #1 agent for Weichert, Realtors company-wide. Before I made the career change and became a realtor, I worked as a senior corporate executive in Manhattan at Saks Fifth Avenue. This corporate experience is what I credit with honing my skills in negotiating as well as enhancing my already competitive nature. These are the qualities that give me an edge when I negotiate on your behalf. I am a top realtor in northern New Jersey, and I completely understand the strains – both emotionally and financially – that these life-changing transactions can bring. Moving is undoubtedly one of the most stressful events in a person's life, but you can easily relieve yourself of some of the burden as well as the time involved by working with a true professional in the real estate industry. I am not the type of real estate agent who shows you listings or brings buyers through without any degree of personal connections. Instead, I make it my priority to work directly with you and your family in determining the best type of home that will fit your lifestyle and in such, helping to make your dreams come true. I will discuss with you and develop a list of your needs and search for the perfect property that meets these needs. If you are selling your home, you can count on me to be a trustworthy and wise advocate that will guide you through the selling process so you can leave the past behind in pursuit of your future.

Brett Sikora
eXp Realty
About Brett

The #1 team at eXp Realty in New Jersey in 2019 and 2020!! After being licensed for several years as a single agent, I started The Sikora Group with the intention to provide white glove service to our clients with a heavy focus on technology to make sure their needs are met. It's 2020 and we're seeing too many agents rely on outdated ways to market homes for sellers or solely focusing on what's available on the mls for buyers. We go well beyond that to find off market buyers for our sellers and off market sellers for our buyers. Reach out to us to discuss what works in today's market and I promise, you will not be disappointed. Our team services a 90 minute radius of New York City. Hudson, Bergen, Essex, Passaic, Union, Somerset, Morris, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?
Top real estate agents have more local expertise, prepare in-depth market analyses, and have industry connections that you can’t find by yourself. They know your neighborhood like the back of their hand and use their market knowledge to sell your home faster than the average agent and for money.
Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Maplewood?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Maplewood?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Maplewood, NJ.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Maplewood?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Maplewood?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
