Returning to the resale market is an exciting opportunity, say Maria.  “I can combine my love of design, the experience gained in new construction from the ground up with my 28 year knowledge of the northern Bergen County housing market.  I have lived in Bergen County my entire life.  I know these neighborhoods intimately . . . Their style, value and vibe, which is always evolving.”
