"After going through the home buying process (for the first time!), it became very obvious to us that all realtors are not created equal. And we totally struck gold with Ginge and the AZ Team! We’ve read many of these reviews and are here to tell you that they are 100% accurate. Ginge. Is. Awesome! Brooklyn people, or any people for that matter...if you are considering a move to the New Jersey suburbs, we really could not recommend Ginge more highly! Ginge and the entire AZ Team know the market inside out, provide honest, practical and strategic advice, and really spend time getting to know exactly what you are looking for in a community and a home to steer you in the right direction. Buying a home, especially for first-timers, can be confusing and frustrating at times. Personally for us, it was a long and tedious process (about 18 months), but Ginge was in our corner throughout it all. She never once wavered in her enthusiasm and support. Ginge is a true professional; extremely knowledgeable, honest, tenacious and ethical – exactly what you want (or should want) in your realtor. The SOMA market in particular is very competitive and you are going to spend a lot of time with your realtor, so you really want someone who listens to you and is there when you need them. Even if you end up needing them...a lot :-) In addition to being a wonderful realtor and advocate, Ginge is funny, engaging, cool, has great taste and is clearly well respected in the broker community. The kind of person you want to spend time with, no matter what! We love our house and seriously cannot thank Ginge enough for all of her hard work. Call her now!" - Jonathan & Abby
"When we decided to move to the SOMAWO area I knew that the only way we would be able to secure a house in this competitive neighborhood was with an extremely savvy, critical thinker, powerhouse of a realtor. And when I met Ginge, I immediately knew that she was the one that fit this criterion.
In the craziest real estate market in history, i.e, no inventory, lots of competition - Ginge found our house. But not just any house - an off-market completely renovated home completely exclusive to us. A literal diamond in the rough. Ginge used her outside-of-the-box thinking, her keen knowledge of the West Orange area, and her relationships to make this happen. Without Ginge, I would still be refreshing Zillow several thousand times a day in a puddle of tears. Instead, I’m now enjoying my refinished backyard patio in the West Orange sun. If you’re losing hope in this crazy pandemic market, give Ginge a call. She will work tirelessly and strategically to find you your dream home. " - Mike & Erin.
"Ginge is the best of the best. She is hands down the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. We recommend her with the highest degree of confidence. Ginge combines exceptional strategic savvy and professionalism with good cheer, kindness, poise, patience, and exceptional client relationship skills. She always responded very quickly to our e-mails and offered us a wealth of amazing resources. Her counsel was spot on time and again. Searching for a home from halfway across the country during a global pandemic was not easy but Ginge made everything so much less stressful. She even mailed us chocolate on Valentine’s Day! Ginge genuinely had our best interests in mind throughout our home search process and we will remain forever grateful to her and the AZ team for helping us find our dream home. Thank you!" - Steven & Sharon.
"Ginge and the AZ team are absolutely fantastic. Ginge is very warm, patient, knowledgeable, an excellent communicator and an advocate for her clients. But what sets her apart is that she really goes above and beyond. As first time homebuyers coming from the city during a pandemic, we were overwhelmed on so many levels. Ginge walked us through every step of the process and helped us navigate a very competitive and rapidly evolving real estate market. She wasn’t just an agent to us, she also stepped in as a consultant, designer and therapist when necessary, guiding us through all the decisions and emotions that come along with buying a home. There were times when we started to feel antsy and were considering homes that weren’t the best fit for us, and it was Ginge who talked us off the ledge and told us to hold off until we found the right house. We took her advice, found our dream home and couldn’t have imagined a better experience getting there." - Kevin & Olivia.
"There's no doubt selling your home is daunting and emotional. Ginge has a deep understanding of both the market, and people. That combination makes her skill set a rare find, as she can both communicate the risks and rewards of real estate and also empathize with the decisions you are making as a seller. Ginge and her team were incredibly organized and responsive. They also were respectful of boundaries and kept all parties moving forward with the sale at a pace that matched our desire to move quickly and we closed within a month. There is an understated skill in managing relationships in what is often a combative transaction and we will forever appreciate that Ginge absorbed much of that stress for us and worked tirelessly with us to sell our home. We have moved before and I have never been inclined to write a review for our agent - Ginge is a special human being - as a seller you place so much trust in your agent, I would do it again 10 times over. Ginge is a powerhouse and you will not regret your decision to work with her." - Ali & Alex.
"If you are moving to Maplewood, South/West Orange area you only need one team, Ginge Calhoun and Allison Ziefert, to make all your suburban dreams come true! Ginge masterfully and so thoughtfully led us through our extraction from tiny-apartment-Brooklyn-living to our gorgeous dream home in West Orange! We could not have been more lucky to have had Ginge by our side as she helped us navigate and curate our first home buying experience. We were impressed at every turn by Ginge’s deep knowledge of the area and her endless network of helpful resources.
Ginge’s sparkling reputation in the community precedes her. You know have the right realtor when other real estate professionals and contractors you meet through the home buying process continually say, “you’re working with Ginge? You’re lucky. She’s a pro!” And they were right. She is an incredible, honest, reliable resource and she will stand behind you every step of the way to get you your dream home!" - Marlena & Ryan
