About Robin Benjamin

 

Over the past seventeen years, Robin Benjamin has established herself as one of the most prominent and successful real estate agents in the Millburn/Short Hills, Maplewood, Chatham, Summit, and Livingston area.  She has a proven track record as an exceptionally successful realtor – both as a buyer’s and seller’s agent – in all kinds of markets.  Her reputation for client satisfaction continues to create repeat and referral business and has cemented her standing as one of the most sought after realtors in the area.  If  you’re looking for instant updates on NEW LISTINGS – notifications on reductions and want to be first to hear about New Construction and Exclusives, search for homes here, especially Short Hills and Millburn, Robin is the perfect choice!

Robin is considered one of the top realtors in the area due to her extensive real estate expertise, her personal and thorough knowledge of the area, and her detail-oriented and results-driven approach to the process.

Understanding the nuances of pricing requires local knowledge that isn’t always available to buyers and sellers.  This is particularly true in a location like Millburn-Short Hills, Chatham, and Summit. These properties are all unique and move a house one way or the other on the street and you’ve got a 5% variable.  Comparing homes in these neighborhoods and understanding the tax structure from town to town requires an intimate knowledge of the area acquired over many years.

“As a resident of Chatham and former resident of Short Hills for almost 30 years , she knows what buyers desire when they move to our closely connected neighborhoods in New Jersey. Selling your home is a major decision that requires careful consideration and lots of support from a knowledgeable source. She will make sure you are supported throughout the entire process and that your home will be represented well.  “My goal is to get your home sold, at a price you like, in a short amount of time.”

Robin specializes in the issues facing buyers in this constantly shifting market. She previews homes and can immediately assess how a particular home will meet a client’s needs, whether it is well-priced, and how to proceed with negotiations.  Her extensive experience in real estate and deep familiarity with the area give her an expert perspective that is invaluable to her clients.  She will provide clear, candid advice at every step of the way, as she guides her clients through the process of buying or selling a home.

Until very recently, real estate agents almost always represented the seller, not the buyer, in the real estate transaction. Even the real estate agent who drove a buyer from home to home was not working on his or her behalf. By law, the agent was required to work on the seller’s side – to get the highest price and the best terms for the seller.  More than one million people in the United States are licensed to sell real estate.  Of those licensees, fewer than 2% are Accredited Buyer Representatives (ABR).  Robin received her ABR accreditation in 2006 and has gone on to become one of the top buyer’s agents in the area.

Essex, Union and Morris Counties are among New Jersey’s most desirable locations, offering beautiful neighborhoods, prestigious schools, and an easy commute (less than 45 minutes by train) to New York City.  These areas are comprised of a network of picturesque towns, including Millburn-Short Hills, Maplewood, Chatham, Summit, and Livingston. These areas offer many different styles of communities, ranging from urban to suburban…including a beautiful and expansive horse country!

On a personal note 

Having lived in the area for more than 30 years, my extensive knowledge of the community and its various neighborhoods definitely gives me an advantage, and makes me the perfect person to search for homes in these towns,  especially Short Hills and Millburn.  I’m intimately familiar with the local schools, having three children who attended Pingry, Kent Place, and the Millburn-Short Hills school system.  I can advise on the various nuances of each neighborhood and know the joys of raising a family in this part of New Jersey. Whether you’re looking for the best place to find “junior tennis” or the right school for your “gifted child”, there isn’t much I don’t know or haven’t heard!

Over the last three decades in the Short Hills and Chatham areas, I’ve enthusiastically taken advantage of everything these communities have to offer. I’m a passionate foodie, loving dining out with friends and always eager to try the many new restaurants popping up in the area.  I’m also an avid athlete, having competed on the tennis courts for many years.  If you’re looking for a great local hiking spot, check out the South Mountain Reservation. With a 2000 acre preserve stretching between Millburn and South Orange long known for its winding paths that we dog lovers all seem to find ourselves. A lifelong photography buff, I often bring my camera along on these excursions. My kids are grown and living in the city but my life continues to be here where I can have the best of both worlds. The ease of the Midtown Direct and the proximity to Manhattan and knowing I can be home in 30 minutes!
