WELCOME MARITSA NUNZIATA

Terrie O’Connor, President of Terrie O’Connor Realtors, is pleased to announce that Maritsa Nunziata has joined the Allendale group as a Sales Associate.

Before joining Terrie O’Connor, Maritsa worked as the CEO of a surgical device company, Apollo Surgical Industries., and recently led Apollo Surgical through a successful acquisition.

Maritsa first obtained her real estate license over 10 years ago and can offer several areas of expertise to her clients. She has worked as a mortgage underwriter for Fannie Mae and is also currently licensed as a home improvement contractor as CEO of her company, Hera Homes LLC., which focuses on rehabilitating distressed homes. Transitioning into a real estate career made sense for Maritsa because of her wide interest and background in the industry.

After graduating from Tufts University with a degree in psychology, Maritsa lived in downtown Jersey City as president of her HOA board for over 10 years, and can offer extensive knowledge about the Hoboken/Jersey City area. After marrying her husband, whom she met playing pick-up basketball as a freshman at Ramsey High School, they decided to move back to Bergen County to raise their family. They now live in Allendale with their two young daughters and adopted dog, and both of their immediate families nearby.

Maritsa is enthusiastic about helping her clients above and beyond their expectations in every aspect of their search.

She can be reached at Terrie O’Connor Realtors’ Allendale Office at 201-825-0500 x21 or on her cell phone at 201-739-6979. She can also be reached by email at mnunziata@tocr.com.

July "Question of the Month"

Our July Client Newsletter poses the question, "Where does the term housewarming come from?"  The answer is:

It is an old tradition that guests would bring firewood as gifts to new homeowners and fires would be lit in every fireplace to warm the family and ward off evil spirits, ridding the home of bad energy.
