FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The Ozar Group Joins Resources Real Estate

Monmouth County, NJ, April 21st, 2017 — Resources Real Estate, Monmouth County’s award-winning luxury real estate firm, announced that Christopher Ozar and the Ozar Group have joined the Resources Real Estate team.  Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440

The Ozar Group made a name for itself as a young, dynamic group, astutely utilizing digital and social media marketing to grow their business in the Hudson County area.  Last year alone, the Ozar Group delivered a total of $12 Million in real estate transactions.

The Ozar Group joining Resources Real Estate is truly a coming home story.  Chris Ozar’s mother, Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, founded Resources Real Estate back in 2000.  Chris received his license right out of high school in 2004 and then learned the ropes at the Resources’ Rumson office.  In 2012 Chris branched out from Rumson and created the Ozar Group, specializing in the Hoboken/Jersey City market.  Chris quickly became one the of youngest agents to be honored with the New Jersey Realtors® Circle of Excellence Award, as well as ranking in the top 100 of all Hudson County’s real estate agents in his first year.

“I’m excited to join the team and to be working with my mother again,” said Chris Ozar.  “My family started Resources Real Estate and I want to continue growing it.  Resources is already a dominant force in NJ, and I am thrilled to contribute with the Ozar Group’s digital marketing expertise and help further expand the firm.”

Under the Resources Real Estate banner, the Ozar Group will now operate two real estate teams: one in Hudson County and one in Monmouth County.  The Monmouth County group will be jointly managed by Chris Ozar with Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.

The Ozar Group’s geographic focus brings immense value to Resources Real Estate.  With many New Yorkers regularly moving west into NJ and many Hudson County residents attracted to the benefits of living in Monmouth County the Hudson-Monmouth connection is a powerful business advantage for Resources Real Estate.

“I am so proud to be able to say that the Ozar Group has joined Resources here in Monmouth County,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon.  “Besides being my son, Chris, in his own right, is an award-winning agent, on track for the Platinum Circle of Excellence award for 2017.  His negotiation skills and marketing know-how are unmatched.  I believe that the best service comes through innovation and change, and Resources is known for both.”

“I am beyond delighted to welcome Chris back to Resources,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “We are honored to have such a top agent join our team, and it’s even better that he’s family.”

The Resources 2016 4th Quarter Market Report is Here!

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440It may seem unfair but frequently we view the last quarter of each year less as an important sales period unto itself and moreso as a wrap-up for the year or sometimes even a harbinger of the Spring market. Anyone who has followed real estate trends in our market understands that the notion of “Spring market” has little or no relationship to the actual date of the vernal equinox a/k/a the first day of Spring (which this year falls on March 20th). Spring Market is simply shorthand for whenever the market shakes off its post-holiday, cold weather doldrums and shows signs of life. Many factors influence when and how dramatic the sales activity will manifest including weather, interest rates, consumer confidence, jobs and the general economy.The Resources Real Estate 2016 4th Quarter Market Report!

Of course, this past year’s last quarter played out in unique fashion due to the drama and suspense of the presidential election which, despite providing some relief by virtue of it simply being over, brings a continued sense of uncertainty in the new year as the new administration begins to take shape and take power.

That said, 2016 single-family residential sales in Monmouth County showed a substantial increase of 16.2% over the previous
year. As this follows on the great market improvement of 2015 (which was the highest year for NJ residential sales since 2005), it says a lot about the state of our local real estate markets.

While inventories were down, something which might and did embolden many home sellers to increase their asking prices, the homeowners that were ultimately successful in finding a buyer showed an overall 2.8% decrease in average sales price.

On a hyperlocal level, 2016 played out very differently depending on location. While many towns in our survey, including Atlantic Highlands, Long Branch, Rumson and Oceanport, showed dramatic sales increases ranging from 25-49%, others such as Fair Haven (long the leader of Monmouth County residential sales pacing) showed a significant downturn (over 24% fewer than 2015). Perhaps more than ever, it pays to be an educated consumer as past rates of sales, current inventories, and average changes in sales prices will be important factors for both sellers and buyers. Of course, your best ally in this transaction is a trained professional who knows your market, the inventory and the changing trends which impact sales in your segment of the market.

We hope you enjoy our current market report. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions specific to your market or clarification on any of the report data.

Have You Tried Booskerdoo Coffee?

It’s so Much More Than a Cup of Joe!

“It began with 5 pounds of coffee beans in a tiny Manhattan apartment. James Caverly was roasting coffee for the first time and it generated so much smoke that his girlfriend, Amelia, thought he had lost his mind. For James, it was a moment of clarity — it resulted in the best cup of coffee he had ever tasted. That’s when he decided to get out of sales and open up his first coffee shop.”
