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.

Nancy knows that her own fascination with real estate and her strong professional background translates perfectly into helping her clients find their dream homes.

Out of the 252 families we helped buy, sell or rent in 2019, 242 were either referrals from past clients or repeat business. We are very proud of this as we know that the best PR is word of mouth from happy clients.

Amy Paternite
Coldwell Banker
About Amy

I'm a native New Yorker who moved to the Garden State over seventeen years ago. Since making the transition from NYC to the suburbs, I have enjoyed learning about the wonderful communities and homes along the midtown direct commuter rail lines and throughout New Jersey. My family first traded a small, third floor brownstone walk-up in Brooklyn for a beautiful 1927 Maplewood center hall colonial, complete with a picturesque backyard and a private driveway. Later we upsized to a spacious 1958 mid-century modern ranch in the Newstead section of South Orange. As a realtor for over fourteen years it has been my pleasure to help people buy and sell homes in Maplewood, South Orange, Montclair, and the surrounding towns. My clients benefit from my extensive local knowledge, proven marketing strategies, exemplary customer service, and expert advice. I have over one hundred five star client recommendations plus I'm ranked in the top 1% of NY/NJ metropolitan area agents and in the top 1% of approximately 92,000 Coldwell Banker agents worldwide.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Newark?
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

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.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Newark?
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 in Newark 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 in Newark 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.
