For the third year in a row, Century 21 Cedarcrest Realty has been voted “Best Realtor in Essex County” in the Suburban Essex magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards. As you’ll see on our Facebook page, we are proudly showing off our Best of Essex gold medals for 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Our 2017 gold medal, for quality customer service, was hard won as it always is, but there are many reasons behind why we provide consistently excellent customer service to home buyers and sellers, year after year.
At the top of that list is our real estate agents, of course, who understand we operate in a highly competitive market in northern New Jersey. They love what they do and they’re really good at it! They know the markets we work in (we specialize in Essex County but work throughout the region), they take the time to listen to what our customers are looking for, they research competitive listings to arrive at the smartest asking price, and so much more. Plus, they appreciate our ongoing professional development training that we offer in our on-site training room, the support they get from and teamwork they experience from each other, and the mentorship they get from our office management.
They also appreciate the second major factor in our real estate agency’s success: the fact that we are part of the Century 21 system. Century 21 is the nation’s most recognized name in real estate. Really! The company reaches millions of Americans through its sponsorship of U.S. Soccer and advertises on high-profile sports broadcasts (such as the Olympics), it is a supporter of the Easter Seals, advertises on major television broadcasts/specials.

In addition to our on-site training, our team has access to Century 21 University, which offers online training to help them sharpen their real estate skills; in fact, Century 21 University is a nine-time winner of Training Magazine’s Top 125 Award. In fact, there is a wide array of technology and sales tools at their fingertips for helping our team through every phase of every transaction so we can always provide the best customer service in our field.
Century 21’s lead generation program and marketing tools enable our real estate professionals to help our customers market and sell their homes more effectively. We have many programs available to promote our listings and showcase homes to their best advantage. For instance, our powerful listing strategy displays your listings on over 500 real estate search websites. And, if you follow us on social media, you’ll see our featured listings every week—one of them could be your home.
At Century 21 Cedarcrest, we also use a proprietary contact management system that helps everyone stay in touch with buyers and sellers—past and present—to ensure those important lines of communication stay open, especially when a property come up that looks like a great fit for someone looking to buy a home.
We have much to be proud of at our real estate agency and have much to be thankful for—especially of our customers who voted for us in the Best of Essex Readers’ Choice Awards. We appreciate the votes of confidence and the many referrals we receive from customers who’ve worked with us in the past. If you know someone who’s looking to buy or sell a property in northern New Jersey—whether it’s a townhome or a distinctive property that will be marketed through our Fine Homes & Estates division—we hope you’ll recommend they contact Century 21 Cedarcrest Realty for a “best of Essex” real estate experience.
