Resources Real Estate Utilizes Exclusive New Technologies to Showcase its Properties

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440Rumson, NJ, September 8th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate announced its collaboration with two technology companies, allowing the firm to use innovative, enhanced methods to market its properties to potential buyers and bring the remote property buying experience to a whole new level.

The first technology comes from Matterport, a Virtual-Reality (VR) company that makes real estate property listings come alive by offering 3-D walkthroughs.  Matterport supplies a dimensionally accurate model of the space, exactly how the human eye would see it.

Resources Real Estate is currently using this Virtual Reality technology for listings at 41 Marlpit Place in Middletown, and 45 River Avenue and 24 Gull Point Rd, both in Monmouth Beach.  Using 360-degree photography, this VR technology allows people to get “inside” the space, as well as see floor plans and a ‘dollhouse’ view of the homes.  The listings can be viewed remotely by wearing VR goggles or by logging into the property websites.  

“People who are looking to buy a house appreciate the ability to truly experience the space by walking through it remotely,” said Tammy Brindise, listing agent for the Gull Point Road listing.  “It’s one thing to see photos, but to be able to virtually walk through the property is incredible.  One has to experience it to understand it.  Resources Real Estate is, once again, offering innovative ways to market our properties. As an agent it’s extremely satisfying, and my clients love it.”

“As a luxury firm, we cater to many international and out-of-area buyers, as well as high net-worth individuals whose schedules may not allow for extensive property hunting,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker for Resources Real Estate.  “Using VR technology allows us to offer a higher level of customer service to both buyers and sellers by allowing more convenience and speedier results.  It ensures that in-person showings are more productive because their first visit via the VR experience is so true to life.”

The company’s second innovation takes the virtual experience to another level entirely.  Created with Mythic VR, it allows users to experience a completely immersive, computer-generated 3D model of a property that does not yet physically exist.  With this technology, located in the company’s Monmouth Beach sales office, a user’s movements are tracked and reflected in 3D space.  Not only may the user see the space but with a handheld controller they may also alter it: change flooring or wall color, select an alternate countertop or cabinetry, and more.  Resources Real Estate has been using this technology to showcase Sunset Villas Luxury Townhomes in Long Branch and is planning on implementing it on some other projects in development.

“The physical model built for Sunset Villas was quickly sold and we needed a way to show prospective buyers what the units that were yet to be built would look like,” said listing agent Helen George.  “With this tool people are able to not only virtually walk through all levels of the place, but also see their future views.  No more standing on a pile of dirt!  This VR experience is like no other!”

“We are excited to be the exclusive brokerage with this technology in central New Jersey,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “We have always embraced technology and we believe that innovation has been key to our growth and clearly sets us apart from our competition.  These tools enable us to better serve both our luxury clientele as well as our developer partners and we are likely going to use them for commercial development in the future.  And VR is actually a lot of fun! We really enjoy it.”

Resources Real Estate showcases their Virtual Reality technologies at their Monmouth Beach office.  Please call 732-212-0440 to schedule an appointment or for more information on accessing remotely.

Resources Real Estate Included in 2017 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – The Inc. 5000

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440New York City, August 17, 2017 — Inc. Magazine unveiled its 36th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000 – and for the second year in a row, Resources Real Estate was included.

The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and a representation of the USA’s critical segment – independent entrepreneurs.  These are businesses responsible for creating companies, creating value, and creating jobs – 619,631 of them over the last three years.

Companies such as Dell, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Pandora, Timberland, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

To qualify and make the 2017 list, companies had to demonstrate a rapid revenue growth over a three-year period, from March 2013 to March 2016.  All companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2016.  Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.  The minimum revenue required for 2013 was $100,000, while the minimum for 2016 was $2 million.

Inc. President and Editor in Chief Eric Schurenberg said: “The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive.  The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA.  Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and CEO Dan Price.

“We are proud to have our growth showcased on this exclusive list,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “In the last three years, we have not only physically expanded our offices and our team, but we’ve also expanded the markets we cover, and grown our commercial real estate division.  As always, we are dedicated to customer service and agent training, and the results are clear.”

“Looking at the other companies on the Inc. 5000, we feel very honored and very lucky,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “But it’s also a very rewarding feeling because we know well the amount of hard work all of us at Resources have put in the last three years.  So seeing the fruits of our labor in the acknowledgement is extremely satisfying.  We are also thrilled to see Resources Real Estate as one of only two real estate firms in NJ on the list – none of our local competitors are included.”

Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue, out on newsstands today.  Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Resources Real Estate Exceeds Sales Goals for 2nd Quarter of 2017 – and Advises Investors on Summer 2017 and Beyond

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440Monmouth County, NJ, August 15th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate, Monmouth County’s award-winning luxury real estate firm, announced that it had exceeded its 20% sales goal after the second quarter.

Through June 30th, 2017, Resources Real Estate’s overall dollar volume sales are up 23% relative to 2016, with unit sales up 14% and median sale price up 46.4%.

June 2017 proved to be a particularly strong month for Resources Real Estate, with over $20mill in total sales, over $10mill of them in Hoboken.

The rapid growth and development Resources Real Estate has seen during 2017 could be attributed to many factors.  Besides statistics of the local real estate market – more on that below – the firm has taken several strategic steps this year that have made a difference.

In April The Ozar Group joined Resources, expanding the firm’s reach to include luxury residential and commercial properties in Hudson County.  In May, Resources appointed office managers to the four Monmouth County locations to streamline operations by managing agent goal-setting and performance review and supporting agents through challenges and negotiation.  Throughout the year, Resources continued to emphasize the lifestyle aspect of their brand by highlighting Monmouth County towns and launching social media hashtag campaigns, as well as creating micro-sites dedicated to the activities and cultural happenings taking place in these communities.

“We are thrilled with the results of the second quarter,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon.  “We will continue to innovate to stay competitive in the luxury market, and we will keep on offering more and more international properties to our clients, as well as expose our clients’ properties to international buyers.”

On its award-winning website, Resources updated its “Market Report” section, detailing the current real estate market in Monmouth County broken down by major markets and showcasing Q2 results in comparison to last year’s.  One notable figure: increased sales in 75% of all surveyed towns for Q2 were followed by a deep drop in inventory, as most people prefer to use the summer for vacation and relaxation.  Despite that, price still plays a major role: two thirds of markets surveyed showed increases in median sale prices since last year and in those areas where the median sale price was $550,000 or less, sales have been particularly rapid.

Fair Haven has been a true gem for Monmouth County, reporting an astounding 60% increase in sales.  According to reports, Fair Haven’s median home values went up 4.55% since March 2016.  Fair Haven was followed by Long Branch, with close to 33% increase in sales.

In Hudson County, published reports show that Hoboken’s median home values went up 12.55% since March 2016, while Weehawken’s median home values surged a whopping 25.15% in the same time period.

“We offer our clients much more than just representation,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “We advise, educate, guide, make recommendations, help clients negotiate, and find new ways to market and promote our listings, as well as go out of our way to find properties for buyers.”

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440Resources Real Estate Agent Sells Over $10 Million in One Month

Hoboken, NJ, August 11th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate’s agent Christopher Ozar, from the Atlantic Highlands office, sold properties totaling over $10 million in one month, an accomplishment which helped Resources exceed its sales goals for the second quarter of 2017.

During June 2017, Christopher Ozar sold two 10-unit commercial properties in Hoboken totaling $7.4 million – 308 Madison Street for $4.324 million, and 301 Madison Street for $3.075 million – plus the multiple residential building at 1125 Maxwell Lane for $2.775,000.

Resources Real Estate Luxury Real Estate in Monmouth County, NJ 732-212-0440In Spring 2017, The Ozar Group, headed by Chris Ozar, joined Resources Real Estate, thus expanding Resources’ market from managing properties solely in Monmouth County to covering Hudson County, specifically luxury listings in Hoboken and Jersey City.  Thanks to this partnership, Resources Real Estate has been successfully representing buyers and sellers of commercial investment properties and multi unit apartment buildings in Hudson County.

The Ozar Group operates two real estate groups, one in Hudson County and one in Monmouth County.  The Monmouth County group is jointly managed by Chris Ozar with Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.

The joining of the group has been a coming home story, as Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, who founded Resources Real Estate in 2000, is Chris’ mother, and Chris had learned the real estate ropes at Resources’ Rumson office before launching The Ozar Group in 2012.  Chris was 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.

“Obviously I’m beaming with pride for Chris’ achievement” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon.  “But putting aside the fact that he is my son, The Ozar Group joining Resources has brought important value to our firm.  We are now regularly introducing the advantages of fine living in Monmouth County, with top schools, stunning water views, and vibrant communities, to people from New York City and Hudson County who are either moving or looking for a vacation home.”

“Joining the team and working with my mother again has been fantastic,” said Christopher Ozar.  “The Ozar Group made a name for itself for utilizing digital marketing and social media marketing to grow our business and it’s been exciting to contribute to Resources’ continuing success.”

“The joining of the two groups has been a strategic move, and we are thrilled to see it pay off,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “Our goal for 2017 has been to expand our offerings geographically, and to grow our commercial offerings, and we have been able to do both.”
