Michael Hern
Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty
About Michael

Who you work with Matters!!! Michael Hern and his team have dominated the local NJ Real Estate market since 2010. Their continued growth has been talked about nationally and they have been ranked as one of the best teams in America for production, professionalism, and ethics. Michael is continuing to lead by example for both his team and other agents in the industry. Michael grew up in Sussex County in a small town called Hardyston. He was raised by his loving parents Michael and Marlene Hern and was the baby of the family. He has a brother Jason, a sister Stephanie and two dogs Cooper and Bruno. He is a proud Uncle of two twin boys named Vincent and Gabriel. After high school, Michael attended Montclair State University and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree. He was born and raised in New Jersey and has no plans to leave, this is his home! One of his favorite things about New Jersey would be the seasons, he loves getting to enjoy Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Aside from being a hard working realtor, he lives a normal, laid back life. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing sports in town leagues, fishing, surfing, snowboarding and enjoying everything the area has to offer. Michael lives in West New York, NJ in the Port Imperial area. He lives here because he loves everything this area has to offer and it’s right in the heart of where he works. West New York offers access to NYC via Ferry Boat, NJ Transit Bus or even by car using the Lincoln Tunnel or George Washington Bridge. It’s what many people consider the hybrid of city living and suburbia. You have all the conveniences of the city, but more space inside and outside of the home. It is kid friendly, dog-friendly, safe and an overall great place to reside. Getting into Real Estate was not by choice, but by chance. Coming out of college, Michael was waiting for an opportunity to be hired as a Health & Physical education teacher within Hudson County. He saw his life teaching, coaching and mentoring kids at the high school level in hopes of providing a positive experience for them much like the one he had with his teachers and coaches. With limited opportunity at the time, he was approached by a top producing agent to help with his business and instantly found his calling. From starting as his buyer’s agent, he learned the ropes of the real estate industry and loved everything about it. He continued to hear a saying that excited him more than anything which was “you will get out of this business what you put into this business”. Michael related it to sports and found himself in an atmosphere that he was already familiar with which made him very comfortable. Since the beginning, the positive experiences he has shared with clients continue to keep him going and he is so grateful that he found something he loves to do. Michael has now been in business for 10 years and nothing can slow him down! Michael brings a level of service to his clients that will exceed their expectations. It’s a service that is built off the principles of being honest, reliable and trusted. Aside from a high level of service, he strives to create lasting relationships with his clients. He loves the feeling he gets when he sees a buyer’s face after walking into a home they love, or a seller when an offer is presented for more money than what they were expecting or the laughs he shares with clients who have turned into lifelong friends. There is nothing better than the personal interaction that he gets to have on a daily basis. Michael specializes along the NJ Gold Coast, which is a stretch of land along the Hudson River on the NJ side that sits across from New York City. It stretches from as far South as Jersey City to as far North as Fort Lee. If you need help within this area, he’s your guy! Professional Awards/Honors: 2011 – COE Bronze, 2012 – COE Silver, 2013 – COE Gold, 2014 - 2020 – COE Platinum, REALTOR Magazine’s 30 under 30 Finalist, Real TRENDS top 1% nationally

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Rutherford?
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 Rutherford?
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 Rutherford, NJ.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Rutherford?
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 Rutherford?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
Why should I use HomeLight to find a Rutherford real estate agent?

We use actual home sales transaction data to compare Rutherford real estate agent and will only introduce you to the top performing agents.
