The Clifton, NJ-based company launched the incentive – called Value Cares – earlier this year to give directly back to dedicated renters who have chosen to establish firm roots in a Value Companies’ community over many years.  Receiving rewards from Value Cares is simple.  For each milestone five-year anniversary celebrated in a Value Companies’ home, renters receive a $100 Value Cares Gift Card.  For example, a five-year resident is gifted $100; a ten-year resident $200, a fifteen-year resident $300, continuing up.

“We are enormously grateful for the thousands of residents who choose to call our communities home,” says Jack Linefsky, Vice President of Property Management for the Clifton, N.J.-based company.  “Value Cares is the perfect way to thank them for being a long-term member in our family of neighborhoods and lets residents know exactly how much we value them.  The introduction of Value Cares couldn’t have been more successful and well received.  We’ve already presented dozens and dozens of residents with gift cards.”

For over six decades, Value Companies has reported high retention and occupancy rates throughout a roster of more than 3,000 apartment homes by providing the highest level of professionalism and a dedication to excellent customer service.

Headed by CEO and President Andrew Abramson, Value Companies has an outstanding background in property management and is well established as one of the northeast’s leading real estate developers, owners and managers.

Founded in 1952, the firm’s residential properties have been built and managed by a highly-skilled, in-house management team of more than 80 industry professionals which oversee all aspects of Value’s communities, including construction, leasing, maintenance, property management and administration.

Value’s third-party management business, Value Asset Management (VAM), provides full-service management capabilities and customized asset solutions to a growing list of third-party real estate investment and property owner clients.  Value Companies also received numerous industry awards for its various properties as well as being a 4-time recipient of the New Jersey Apartment Association Management Company of the Year award.

Cliffside Park Takes a Turn in the Spotlight in NY Times Living In

The New York Times recently turned its spotlight on the Bergen County Gold Coast Borough of Cliffside Park as a feature in its weekly Living In.   Entitled “Cliffside Park, N.J.: A Brooklyn and Queens Vibe in Bergen County” the publication looks at how the Borough has drawn residents from New Jersey and New York attracted to its Hudson River views, proximity to Manhattan and vibrant downtown.   The story highlights new residents who have moved to Cliffside Park, such as “Kaya Abe Magee, 56, a floral designer, moved to Cliffside Park from Bernardsville, N.J., to be closer to New York’s flower markets. “I can go to the city easily and come back for a little peace,” she said.

Ms. Magee’s son is heading to college in the fall, so she no longer has to live near his high school, the Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J. She recently bought a two-bedroom condo in a new building, One Park, on Adolphus Avenue. She declined to disclose the price, but two-bedroom units in the building range from about $800,000 to $1.4 million.”

Huggies & ShopRite Help New Jersey Combat Diaper Need

baby-in-diapers-huff-postFrom July to October, ShopRite and Huggies donated 250,000 diapers to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a member of the National Diaper Bank Network.  This helps the 1 in 3 families struggling with diaper need in New Jersey.

How you can help:

  • Donate leftover diapers – have leftover diapers your child outgrew? Your local diaper bank can use them! Opened packages are fine, too.
  • Volunteer at a local diaper bank – donate your time, skills, experience, education or man power to support (email info@diaperbanknetwork.org to find a place to volunteer near you)
  • Host a diaper drive – every package of diapers you collect and every dollar you raise will impact needy infants and toddlers

The initiative is part of a larger donation of 500,000 diapers and $10,000 to the National Diaper Bank Network to help tackle diaper need—the struggle to provide enough clean diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.*

NY WATERWAY EXPANDS FREE FERRY BUS SERVICE TO SERVE RESIDENTS OF ONE PARK IN BERGEN COUNTY’S CLIFFSIDE PARK

Avora Port Imperial Ferry TerminalDMG Investments, the developer of One Park in Cliffside Park, N.J., has entered into an agreement with NY Waterway to expand the ferry operator’s complimentary shuttle bus service between its main terminal at Port Imperial in Weehawken and the new luxury condominium building located at 320 Adolphus Avenue.

The new bus route launched in conjunction with the arrival of the first residents at the 14-story, 204-unit luxury building.  The free public shuttles will connect to NY Waterway’s Port Imperial terminal in Weehawken where ferries carry commuters across the Hudson River to the West 39th Street Terminal in Midtown Manhattan in eight minutes, and the Wall Street and Brookfield Place terminals in downtown Manhattan in under 20 minutes.

Multiple busses will operate on the route during morning and evening rush hours.  One Park is situated just three miles from the Weehawken ferry terminal.

The noteworthy announcement reflects both One Park’s and Cliffside Park’s ascension into a preferred New Jersey’s Gold Coast residential destination.   With a unique location atop the Palisades offering uninterrupted views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, One Park blends modern residences and a full complement of world-class amenities and services with a favorable commute to Manhattan and close proximity to the dynamic waterfront lifestyle scene below.

The enhanced commuter convenience also follows the start of the Route 495 viaduct construction project which promises to snarl traffic into and out of the Lincoln Tunnel for the next 2 ½ years – a major inconvenience that won’t affect One Park residents who opt for the carefree ferry ride to Manhattan.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join with NY Waterway and introduce the expanded bus route which will pay great dividends to not only residents of One Park, but the entire Cliffside Park community,” said Jacky He, Executive Vice President of DMG Investments.

“This public service will unlock yet another commuter option by providing a worry-free trip to the New York Waterway ferry terminal, the most reliable Hudson River crossing and quickest access point to Manhattan.” Continue reading

Walkers were welcomed back to the promenade after their stroll along the river with a live DJ set featuring spooky Halloween hits and special treats from the City Place retailers.
