FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Resources Real Estate Expands Support Staff to Promote Growth

Monmouth County, NJ, August 15th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate, Monmouth County’s award-winning luxury real estate firm, announced new administrative positions, in a continued focus to strengthen the support received by agents.

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440Alexandra “Lexi” Barrett was promoted and Georgeann Gallagher has joined the Resources Real Estate team.  Lexi was announced as the new Operations Manager, and Georgeann will be the Transaction Coordinator and Rumson Office Administrator.

During her four and half years with Resources, Lexi has filled a lot of roles, initially as the Red Bank office administrator, then growing to assume the additional role of Graphics Production Coordinator.  In time, Lexi was named Transaction Coordinator and Rumson Office Administrator and eventually held the Senior Admin position at the company.  Her success in fulfilling her varied responsibilities, her problem-solving skills and her commitment to the company’s growth and to the agents’ success has made her an indispensable member of the team.  In addition, Lexi has assisted in the development of company systems, tools and training to further support the sales efforts of the Resources’ agents.

As Operations Manager, Lexi will oversee operations for Resources Real Estate’s four offices, including systems management, facility maintenance and staffing.  In addition, she will be directly involved in new hire processing, commission payments and continued development of agent support structure.  Lexi will be based in the Rumson office, but will make regular visits to each office and will maintain regular contact with both office management and administrative staff.

Lexi was able to be fully tasked her with her new responsibilities once the right candidate was found to assume her previous job as traffic coordinator and administrator for the Rumson office, and Resources found that person in Georgeann Gallagher.

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440Georgeann’s depth of experience and knowledge of real estate admin support and operations is impressive, having worked at Coldwell Banker’s Rumson office for nearly 18 years.  The praise she has received from the agents she had previously worked with is a testament to her resourcefulness, work ethic and initiative.

Georgeann will be responsible for Resources’ transaction management solution system, ensuring the order and organization of all documentation, and assisting agents, as well as general admin support at the Rumson office.

Resources has continuously been making efforts to bolster the support given to its agents as well as the company infrastructure by amassing the best support team, already consisting of the following staff members:

  • Susan Chaney – Online Marketing Coordinator, Monmouth Beach Office Admin
  • Patti Fiasconaro  – Graphics Production Coordinator, Red Bank Office Admin
  • Jane Robinson – Advertising & PR Coordinator, Atlantic Highlands Office Admin
  • Colette Wester – Promotions & Leads Coordinator, Atlantic Highlands Office Admin

“We conducted a very long search for the right candidate for the Traffic Coordinator position and we are thrilled to have found Georgeann for the job,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon.  “As for Lexi, she has been a real asset to the Resources team and we are proud to be able to honor her with more responsibility.  Each and every single part of the Resources family is important, and having such a fantastic team is what makes us strong and keeps us competitive in the luxury real estate market.”

“The collective support of all of Resources’ managers, agents and admin staff is extremely appreciated as we continue to grow and strengthen our internal infrastructure and hiring, as well our sales and market presence,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “We are committed to providing the very best support for our agents, and are confident it further promotes growth, as well contributes to a more positive work environment for us all.”

August 11th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate announced the publication of the Summer 2017 issue of Portfolio, its lifestyle magazine.

The Summer 2017 issue showcases splendid Monmouth county homes in Atlantic Highlands, Colts Neck, Fair Haven, Highlands, Holmdel, Little Silver, Long Branch, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury, and Tinton Falls, as well as first-time home buyer opportunities, investment properties, and some exciting commercial properties for sale.

In this issue, readers will marvel in the splendor of an 8,000 square-foot English Tudor Manor house with panoramic views of the Navesink River.   This Locust, NJ home boasts seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, walk-out finished lower level with wine cellar and billiards, art deco theatre, outdoor large spa, private dock with two boat lifts, and a separate living space for guests

Foodies will enjoy ‘Small Town, Big Flavors,’ a piece introducing Porcini, a charming restaurant in the town of Highlands.  Owned by couple Chris and Alexandria, Porcini offers Italian American dishes with a hint of other international cuisines in an intimate atmosphere.

‘Make Your Home in Holmdel’ showcases a beautiful Colonial home in a town known for its fabulous landscapes.  The 4-bedroom, 3-car garage home is located in the coveted Falcons Ridge neighborhood and is close to the top rated Holmdel High School.

‘Waterfront Masterpiece’ presents a Rumson home that readers will have to see to believe.  Featuring over 8,000 square feet of luxury on a private lot, this five-bedroom, five-bathroom house overlooks the Shrewsbury River and offers 180-degree sweeping water views from its family room.  This three-level house boasts a dramatic marble foyer with elevator access to all three levels, custom gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, open floor plan, private theater, four fireplaces, wine room and custom finishes throughout, and a stunning outdoor pool oasis and deep water dock.  The master bedroom suite has its own sitting room overlooking the river, his and her office, private dressing room and luxurious bathroom with master Jacuzzi tub, oversized custom glass shower and marble top vanities.  Underground electric and back-up generators keep peace of mind during inclement weather, and a location within an easy commute to NYC via high speed ferry make this a truly rare find.  Make sure to check out photos of the property featured in the magazine.

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440

The end of year and start of a new one is a special time because it encourages each of us to review what has come before and envision what lies ahead.

For us at Resources Real Estate, we saw 2016 bring us many things, much of which will carry us into 2017 with great momentum. In September we were nominated for 8 awards by Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate (LRE), a prestigious global network of elite brokers and agents. Among the nominations were Best Website, Best Print Marketing, Best Digital Marketing, Outstanding Social Media Savvy, Most Innovative Marketing Technique (which we won 2 years ago) and others. Most every national real estate firm was among the nominees including affiliates of Sotheby’s, ReMax, Coldwell Banker, and more, as well as many fine independent brokers from around the country and the world. We are truly honored to be recognized in such fine company. September was also the month we were named to the Inc.5000 — Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This recognition of our growth was a welcome surprise and it demonstrates that our work has yielded real results.

In October the celebration continued as we brought home the award for Best Overall Marketing Package from LRE at their 21st annual Luxury Real Estate awards ceremony held in Aspen. This recognition was momentous as it acknowledged our efforts in print, digital and online, in our company branding, property marketing and agent promotion. Our marketing approach’s comprehensiveness was key to our receiving this award. October was also the month we celebrated our top agents by rewarding them with a luxury cruise vacation for their hard work and stellar sales. It was a joy to spend time with these wonderfully impressive people — not just great sales professionals but warm, compassionate and creative individuals. We aspire every day to fulfill our ideal of “Exceptional Service, Exceptional Homes, Exceptional Agents” and 2016 exemplified our success in inching closer to it. We look forward to an exciting 2017 and all it holds for us. We wish you the best in the new year as well.
