★★★★★
"When we decided to sell our home we immediately signed on with Mary and her team. Performance and execution are both paramount in all business transactions especially when selling a home. Mary and her team have a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as having a command of the real estate industry, not just in Franklin Lakes but in Bergen County. The entire process of preparing the house and presenting it for listing (their guidance, advice and inputs were perfect), through the open house , series of offers, contract execution, inspection and final closing was as seamless and collaborative as could be. The bottom line is we closed within 30 days of the house being listed with a price we were extremely pleased with. Overall the process in selling our home was a very satisfying, efficient and productive event." -Mark P

★★★★★
"Mary is a rock star and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Bergen County market. Mary represented us in purchasing a home in Ridgewood from a relocation agent, which adds complexity to the transaction, while we lived in California. With this two added twisted to a normal transaction, Mary kept the purchase as smooth and easy as possible. I've recommended Mary to other friends and we have all felt the same way about Mary. She is easy to work with and extremely professional."

There was never a time I couldn't reach Mary with a question or concern. No question was too small. She was always engaged and highly motivated to complete our transactions. She brings a wealth of experience and knows her market from the most expensive to the most modest of homes. I recommend her without reservation. It was a pleasure to work with Mary Premtaj."

About Mary
For more than two decades, broker associate Mary Premtaj has delivered impressive real estate success by placing her client's needs above all else. With Mary, buyers and sellers have a highly analytical strategist at their side. She's well-versed in every aspect of real estate and local market data, but more importantly, she knows what that data means in terms of pricing, trends and negotiability. Like a great chess player, Mary is a superb dealmaker, always thinking several steps ahead. She's a fixer, a planner and an elite problem solver. But Mary is also a warm, accessible ally who simply loves helping people realize their real estate goals.

Originally from Southern New Jersey, Mary graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Rutgers University with a double major in economics and finance and a minor in calculus. She launched her professional career on Wall Street in an entry-level position at Merrill Lynch. Leveraging her talent for relationship-building early on, Mary made her dream of working on the trading floor a reality by landing a role on the newly formed foreign exchange desk. Over the next decade, she thrived in making markets and taking proprietary positions in foreign currencies during The Street's notorious 1980s heyday.

Marriage, family and a move to the suburbs came next. In fact, it was her own unsatisfying experience buying a home that first planted the idea of a career in real estate. "The process was unorganized and chaotic," she recalls. "It was such a big deal, and I just felt like I didn't have the proper guidance and resources I needed." Mary knew there had to be a better way. On a gut level, she understood that by combining her Wall Street expertise, business acumen and creativity with a genuine commitment to service and care, she could elevate the entire real estate experience. It's a recipe that has made her the top realtor in Franklin Lakes every year since 2009 and an annual NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence award recipient since 2010, with platinum-level recognition since 2017. But it's her long list of repeat and referral clients that is her proudest achievement.

As the leader of The Premtaj Team at Compass, Mary proudly serves buyers and sellers throughout Bergen County, with a special fondness for marketing luxury properties. True to her initial business goals, her clients always feel supported and cared for. She fights for their needs, addresses their worries and responds quickly. It's no surprise that she's closed more than $475 million in career sales, including $60 million in 2021 alone.

Mary resides in Franklin Lakes, where she and her husband have raised three kids. In her free time, she loves anything active and outdoorsy, including tennis, paddle tennis, skiing, running and all water sports, but she enjoys spending time with her family and their German Shepherd most of all. Mary is an avid supporter of local nonprofits, especially those helping children and women, and she makes annual trips with her church group to build houses for underprivileged families in the Dominican Republic.
