LIVE & LOVE NJ ~ Follow Your Heart

Home is where the heart is. And judging from the real estate data, a lot of hearts have fallen for New Jersey.

Even before the pandemic, people like me, originally a New Yorker and now a New Jersey resident, were looking for a new place to call home with a vibrant culture, good schools, accessibility to the city, and more space.

In 2020, as everyone began spending more time at home, rearranging their living space to accommodate Zoom meetings and classes and 24/7 family togetherness, more urban dwellers realized they needed something different. Good news is, New Jersey is abundant with counties booming with urban energy. Once-quaint towns like Westfield, Summit, Madison and Morristown have become the new “it” spots for quality of life and proximity to the city.

So what happens when your heart seeks a home but you don’t want to sacrifice the things you love about your current one? This is where you need a trusted source for authentic living. As a local reporter and licensed Realtor serving all of New Jersey, I’ll use this monthly column to share what I know about area real estate trends and the latest news across the Garden State.

So where will your heart lead you? Send me an email and let me know!
