Billie Jean King's Lesson to Collaborate is Still a Perfect Match by Leslie Allen

Billie Jean King was one of my mentors on the WTA Tour. Billie's credo to collaborate with your "competition" still resonates with me today in my work as a keynote speaker, Win4Life mentor, and real estate salesperson. Working with Janis Devito, Broker of Record at West End Residential (WE) also reminds me of my pro tennis days with Billie Jean King, the mentor to everyone in the “locker room”. With her indomitable spirit and can-do attitude Billie taught us (regardless of ranking) our responsibilities as pro tennis players and instilled that it was our duty to always put out the best product possible (Women’s Professional Tennis). Janis, like Billie, has an indomitable

WE Introduce New Agent

JAN BARONE

WE sat down with West End’s newest agent to learn more about her path to becoming an agent and what she loves about being part of the WE family.

Tell me about yourself: I raised my kids in Bergen County and we were there for 16 years. My husband and I are empty-nesters and in October we bought a house in Morris County because it was closer to work. We found a house that was two blocks from South Street so we could be close to town and walk around and take advantage of everything here. Professionally, I have always been in the business of client care in one way or another. I worked for airlines for many years before having my children and when my daughter went to school full-time I started working for Mercedes

Homes have been flying off the market (sometimes before a listing even makes it online!) and buyers are clamoring to get in the game. It is a great time to be a seller! With the 2018 spring market on the horizon those that are ready to sell are in an ideal market. Here’s why..

1. Rates are low, drawing buyers into the market

Hovering just above 4%, today’s 30-year mortgage rates are historically low. While experts agree mortgage credit will remain relatively cheap for most of the year it's been widely predicted that they'll reach 5% before year's end. Buyers know that the longer they wait to buy, the more expensive it will be. What does this mean? It means that you'd be wise to list your home earlier in the year, before more rate hikes kick
