With extensive experience working with both buyers and sellers, we have helped numerous families transition to and from their homes.  We strive to make each transaction a positive experience for our clients, and maintain a win-win mentality from contract to closing.  Don’t take our word for it, though — read what our clients are saying about their experiences working with us:

I had the great pleasure of working with Judith Daniels this past year when we sold our house in Short Hills. She came highly recommended to us by our good friends whose home she had recently listed and sold. My husband and I could not have been more delighted with Jude. She was completely hands-on, responsive, smart, strategic, and helpful to us in every way.

Jude was our partner from the beginning to the end. From our first meeting, she had a plan to stage our home and get it on for the spring market. Since we no longer lived in the house, she helped oversee the various workers in the house (handymen, painters, window washers, and stagers). She also did a wonderful job with marketing our home, creating a stunning brochure and website that she promoted on Zillow, Trulia, and other websites as well as directly marketing it to local agents and those in major markets such as New York City and Hoboken. Not only did she make sure that everyone saw our home on the internet, but also made sure that our house showed its best for each and every showing (spotless, fresh flowers, and all lights on!).

Selling any home can be a challenging process, but it's a lot easier when you are working with agents you trust. There was never an issue that was too big to solve immediately and not once did we get the feeling or the response that it was our problem, not hers. And I am happy to report that we had a very good result!

We were delighted when our house sold and sold as well as it did, but we miss Jude. We would use her again in a minute.

Susan & Jerry W., Short Hills, NJ

Jude Daniels did an outstanding job as our realtor, exceeding all expectations! From the beginning, our listing brochure was an elegant reflection of our beautiful home. The staging was impeccable under Jude's direction, and highlighted the best possible spaces and decorating for the potential new buyers to see. Jude balanced all aspects of the real estate transaction with keen attention to details, especially the highly stressful aspects such as negotiating price and closing. Jude has boundless energy, enthusiasm and holds the highest levels of integrity, honesty and care. She is a rare gem! She helped sell our home in record time and in the highest price category that we had been hoping for, even in the more unpredictable Fall market! She effectively got us to closing with the least stress possible, with a solution oriented mindset! Buyers and Sellers need this kind of expertise and support during the home sale and buying process. I highly recommend her as a most dedicated, knowledgeable and trusted realtor for your most special real estate needs!

Renee R., Short Hills, NJ

Selling a home can be very stressful. That is why it is so important to find the right team to help guide you through the entire process. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the pleasure of working with your team with the sale of 2 homes. It is my opinion in order to have a great Real Estate team it takes passion and lots of attention to detail. This team needs to be creative, organized and be great communicators. Your team hits all of these points and then some. As a team you have explained the process, the potential roadblocks, and a few scenarios that could occur. You have always returned call promptly, make every appointment on time and take the best pictures. I thank you very much for making this process go as smooth as possible and the great experience of working with you all!

John P., Millburn, NJ

Judith is a very hands on listing agent and used the most current market data and her years of real estate experience to get my house sold quickly and way over asking. She educated me of the benefits of staging and doing work to the house before putting it on the market, and helped oversee the work as it was being done, keeping everyone on a tight schedule. Once the work was completed, she hired a professional photographer and writer to create a high quality brochure and website for my home.

Judith is an expert in the Short Hills market, pulling in 17 offers on my home in the first week on the market and negotiated the sale of my house at $200,000 over the asking price! I would highly recommend Jude to anyone looking to sell their home and I would also encourage them to take her advice each step of the way -- it actually works!

R. B., Short Hills, NJ

As first time home buyers, the task of finding our home seemed quite daunting. Neither of us are originally from Northern New Jersey and we were hoping to find someone who could lead us through the home buying process.

Jude was more than we could have hoped for! Her knowledge of this area is unparalled, due to the fact that she has spent most of her life here. Her style is assertive but not overbearing. Truly the perfect balance. She was able to determine exactly what we were looking for through pinpointing our specific preferences. We feel it was thanks to her warm rapport, guidance and perseverance that we closed on our dream home.

Jude is perfect--she guided us through each stage of buying a home with such a nurturing and intelligent approach--the process was seamless and fun. We'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the area.

Emily & Brian N., Short Hills, NJ

We had a great experience working with Jude as our realtor to buy our new home in Short Hills and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to move out to the Short Hills or Summit area. Throughout the home searching and home buying process, she was patient, readily available, not pressuring, and very knowledgeable of the area.
We had a three-bedroom apartment in Hoboken so we weren't in a rush to move and we were looking for the perfect combination of location, property and house that checked all of the boxes. For about 1.5 years of watching MLS alerts and numerous house tours we were feeling like we wouldn't find everything we wanted in one. When our house hit the market there were multiple offers on it. Jude helped guide us to make the winning offer, while feeling confident that we were paying a fair price for the home. She has great relationships with other local agents, which not only helped the process go smoothly, but can sometimes be the difference in getting a deal done.

Jude has become both a friend and a wonderful resource. She has tons of contacts for inspectors, lawyers, etc. We were very happy working with Jude and are delighted to be in our new home!

Tracy & Mike S., Short Hills, NJ

We worked with Jude to buy our dream house in Summit, NJ. New to New Jersey and first time home buyers, we were a perfect combination of clueless. It was such good luck when we met Jude and Deirdre at an open house! Having grown up in Short Hills, Jude has extensive knowledge of the area and local markets. She helped us narrow down neighborhoods that appealed to us and quickly understood what we were looking for in a home. We were always treated like a priority and Jude made herself available to us at any time of the day. She has a phenomenal personality and is very flexible and honest. Jude has a great network within the realtor community and got us in to view our house before it officially made it on the market. Even after we were under contract, Jude worked tirelessly with our attorney, mortgage broker and the seller's agents to make what was a very difficult process run smoothly. We highly recommend working with Jude!

Anusha V. & David W., Summit, NJ

Working with Judith to find our dream home was an easy and enjoyable process. From the beginning, Judith was patient with us and listened to what we had to say and what we wanted. She never pressured us into decisions and was always happy to take the time to go the extra mile for us.

Judith worked with us for over a year and showed us many homes. In the end, she was able to get us into our absolute dream home. Judith was great through the entire process, making sure our closing ran smoothly and followed up after. We would never work with another realtor and have recommended her to everyone we know!

Ariele & Jeffrey S., Summit, NJ

Jude helped us find our ideal and forever home and we are so grateful that we picked her as our realtor. We were a young family moving from New York City to the suburbs, and she was so helpful in so many ways distinct from home buying. She educated us about the town and its school district, recommended options for children's programs, and introduced us to many helpful people and potential friends. She was there every step of the way but still gave us space to make our own decisions, and above all she was honest and direct. We've been residents of Short Hills now for almost three months and love it and the house completely. We would highly recommend Jude for any residential real estate needs!

Michael & Melissa N., Short Hills, NJ

Jude is a one of a kind realtor - the kind who completely goes way above and beyond what any realtor would do. She helped my husband and I find our first home very recently and after we walked her through what we were looking for, she completely owned the process and did all the due diligence for us. After a week or two or working with us, she probably knew what we really wanted better than we did ourselves. This was evident because we originally didn't even look twice at the home we eventually bought, based on what we saw on the MLS. But Jude had previewed the house anyways and told us we had to see it and that it really couldn't be missed. And she was right - the house, in person, was exactly what we were looking for and more. Jude is meticulous, responsible, and extremely caring. She worked so hard for us, often previewing dozens of houses for us each week and taking us on multiple trips to see the ones she thought were the best fits. When we finally entered the bidding process, Jude was such a great guide on how to negotiate and how to work through what could have otherwise been a very convoluted and stressful process. We see her as more of a friend than a realtor now and can not recommend her more to anyone who is looking to buy a house!

Amy & Jason H., New Providence, NJ

Judith Daniels has put the joy back into home buying. Her passion and enthusiasm as a realtor is tempered with an unbiased, respectful approach and uncommon humility. She inspires confidence with facts, is patient and truly fun to work with.

Lis H. & Rob C., Summit, NJ

We cannot imagine having gone through the home-buying experience with anyone other than Jude. She was an expert guide through each part of the process. We valued her information and insight. And, most importantly, we appreciated that she always had our family's best interest has her top priority. We cannot thank you enough, Jude, for your tireless help and your friendship.

Sarah & Brian F., Summit, NJ

Jude has taken our horrendous experiences with real estate brokers and turned them upside down. She significantly enhanced our house hunting process. Her organization, accessibility, and shrewdness were a huge asset to us throughout the process and way beyond.

Taryn & Darren L., Short Hills, NJ

Working with Judith was a pleasure! We were making the big move from NYC to the suburbs and needed a lot of extra attention. She was informed, patient and helpful every step of the way. Buying a home is more than just a huge financial commitment, it is an emotional experience. You need someone by your side who understands the 'ins and outs' of real estate, but also understands the human side of the business. Judith was incredible at both. She's hard working, dedicated and has a huge heart. We would recommend her services to anyone.

Deirdre and Jude represented us in the sale of our home in West Orange, NJ in Spring of 2017. We immediately thought of them when we knew we were moving as Deirdre had represented us a few years ago when we initially purchased our home.

Deirdre and Jude were both very knowledgeable about the current market conditions in our neighborhood. Whenever we met them or had calls with them, they
always came prepared with both useful and actionable information.

One of the biggest - and invaluable - benefits was that they, and their network of trusted and experienced vendors, provided a turn-key solution that included decluttering, staging, photography, marketing and managing a busy calendar of viewings. Their assistant Sandy was also tremendously helpful in keeping us on track and on point until our closing. This was perfect for two working professionals with young children, eliminating the stress of selling a home and allowing us to focus on our out of state move.

We ultimately received a price for our home that exceeded our expectations in a short period of time. This outcome wouldn't have been possible without their help, guidance and advice. We highly recommend Deirdre and Jude to anyone who is buying or selling their home.

Isaac & Amy H., West Orange, NJ

I first met Jude Daniels even before our family was in the market for a house. When it came time to leave Hoboken and look for a new home out in the suburbs I had no doubt who I would want to help me through the process. Jude took the time to show us a long list of towns and various neighborhoods and helped us narrow down which worked best for our family. Her knowledge and intelligence made what could have been a daunting and overwhelming process completely seamless. Once we found a home she guided us through a closing that, to no fault of our own, turned out to be complicated and drawn out. We always had no doubt that with Jude working for us we were in good hands. From day one of house hunting to closing day she displayed the utmost professionalism, patience and diligence. In fact, even after closing I knew I could depend on Jude for various house recommendations & advice. We consider her to be a true expert and the top in her field at helping families find a new home!

Helen T.

My husband and I recently made the move from Hoboken to Short Hills, initially meeting Jude and Deirdre at an open house. We knew immediately that we wanted to work with them to find our Short Hills home, as they both have lived for many years in the area and are extremely knowledgeable, patient and we expected them to be a great asset to a family looking to make a move to the suburbs. Everything about the process with Jude and Deirdre exceeded our expectations. They pulled off getting a contractor to come to a home we were considering with two hours notice on a Sunday, guided us after we decided that the type of home we thought we wanted was not really the best for us, and managed a long negotiation process. We found a house much quicker than expected, due to Jude and Deirdre's guidance and because they really took the time to understand the features of a home that would meet and exceed our family's needs. We also 100% trusted their recommendations for inspectors, attorneys and other service providers, all of which we are been very pleased with and made the experience even better. We would recommend Jude and Deirdre to anyone looking for two agents who are experienced, passionate, and truly care about finding your dream home.

Christine & Jannick T., Short Hills, NJ

We are very happy with our new house in Summit, NJ. Thanks to Judith, the closing process was both fast and smooth which allowed us to start enjoying our new house as soon as possible. Judith was prompt and courteous throughout the entire process. You will enjoy working with Judith.

- A. Kaya & S.K. Annadurai, Summit, NJ

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jude to purchase our first home. Jude was able to cater to many of our unique needs as first time home buyers moving from NYC to the NJ suburbs. Jude definitely helped to keep us focused and informed at all times throughout the process. She really made sure we had all the tools and information we needed to make an informed decision on our first home purchase -- and we couldn't be happier with the end result!

Amanda & Matthew C., Mendham, NJ

Jude Daniels is patient, kind and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking for a house or looking to sell. We were bidding in a competitive market and it wasn't easy, but she and her team saw us through.
