PALISADES PARK, N.J.– The confidence and approval of the local real estate brokerage community unquestionably plays a significant role in the success of any new home offering that enters the housing market.
With a strong grasp of the buying public and in depth knowledge of the real estate landscape, brokers and agents are a key ingredient in introducing homes and lifestyle to prospective purchasers. At Trio condominiums in Bergen County’s Palisades Park, for example, a strong appeal to real estate professionals and ability to provide a housing product that fits client needs has fueled a high number of sales at the collection of 140 upscale homes.
One of the most successful brokerages, Top Realty in Englewood Cliffs, has sold five homes alone at Trio. The firm, which is active in eastern Bergen County and beyond, is one of the most experienced real estate offices in the area and has a comprehensive understanding of the niche and ethnic markets attracted to Bergen County’s Hudson River waterfront.
“Bergen County has all types of homebuyers with the largest percentage being young couples with children,” says Sonia Kwak, a principal and broker at Top Realty. “Many of the buyers are local. However, because Ft. Lee, Palisades Park and surrounding municipalities are a base for the Korean community there’s also interest from Korea.”
Ms. Kwak and her associates are charged with researching and discovering homes and buildings that can deliver the kind of lifestyle her buyers seek. Trio, which boasts one-, two- and three-bedroom homes and a comprehensive package of recreational amenities, has proven to offer exactly that.
“Trio has a significant advantage over comparable buildings, due to its location in Palisades Park,” Ms. Kwak points out. “Not only is it a few miles from the George Washington Bridge and New York City, but it is also minutes from many of the delights of Korean culture, restaurants and entertainment.
“Add in new and modern homes with the ease and convenience of its maintenance-free lifestyle and the building has all the elements buyers want. Of course, its extremely competitive pricing also plays a significant role in our buyer’s decision to purchase.”
Top Realty has been so bullish on Trio that two of its real estate agents most actively selling the building have made it their home. Meil Lee is currently a resident at Trio and Jennifer Park has also resided there.
Homes at Trio are priced from just $330,000 and boast floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, and modern recessed lighting and individual washers and dryer. Gourmet kitchens include granite countertops, stainless steel GE appliances, custom maple cabinets, and Kohler fixtures. Designer bathrooms feature Crema Marfil marble floors, granite countertops, custom maple vanities, and Kohler fixtures. Homes are available with immediate occupancy and come with covered parking.
Trio also offers a selection of two- and three-bedroom Penthouses priced from just $595,000. The magnificent residences are being offered with a special limited time incentive that provides up to $50,000 off the purchase price of the luxurious homes.
Five different Penthouse floorplans are now available at Trio with desired elements such as separate kitchen and dining areas, two-and-a-half to three bathrooms, spacious master bedroom suites with walk-in closets, designer kitchens and more. Some of the Penthouses offer spectacular New York City views, while others offer spanning vistas of the western-facing landscape.
An eclectic collection of resort-like amenities and services at Trio offers homeowners the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities. Found within the buildings is a lounge with billiards, ping pong, a large screen TV and catering kitchen, a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, game room, virtual golf simulator, outdoor terrace and a business center.
“Lifestyle plays an increasingly large role in a buyer’s decision on where to purchase,” says Honey Hwang, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors, exclusive marketing and sales agent for Trio. “There’s certainly no shortage of things to do at Trio. Our lifestyle amenities provide a well-rounded environment to enjoy, from a workout in the fitness center or yoga studio to practicing their drive in our golf simulator. Residents don’t have to leave the buildings for recreation and entertainment.”
Located at 800 12th Street in Palisades Park, Trio is ideally situated in an established residential neighborhood minutes from a number of transportation options, including bus service. Shopping enthusiasts will find a myriad of opportunities at nearby malls, such as Riverside Square and Garden State Plaza, as well as a host of brand-name stores, specialty shops and boutiques, which line Route 4 and Route 17.
“Of course, the proximity to the George Washington Bridge and the New York Waterway ferry service also puts Manhattan’s business, social and cultural offerings a quick trip away,” Ms. Hwang adds.
