Finding homes for buyers and selling homes for clients isn’t just my vocation, it’s my passion. After 12 years, I still get excited about every transaction as if it were my first, and clients get the benefit of my experience. Today, I lead a top performing team at Keller Williams Premier Properties in Short Hills, which was recognized with the 2014, 2015 & 2016 Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agent Award from Zillow & Trulia. Our growth has largely been driven by referrals, a strong indicator that we are delivering results for our clients. When it comes to the home buying and selling process, that means anticipating issues, removing obstacles, and negotiating vigorously on their behalf. Our goal is to make the process less stressful and more successful for clients. Based on our consecutive growth, we know our approach is working for clients. In the local real estate market, experience and reputation make all the difference.

“I met Saritte through an open house and was immediately impressed. I would argue that her knowledge of construction, zoning & housing is in the top 1% of area brokers. Saritte found us a buyer that was willing to pay an above market price. I was continually impressed with Saritte’s commitment to excellence.” — Frank B, Seller
