We know great homes...And we know how to sell them.
What is your home worth?
June 2017 - Although sales have been robust locally, there has been a general slowdown insales across much of the country, and this cannot be blamed on negative economic news. Wage growth, though nothing to overly celebrate, has held steady or increased for several years in a row. Governor Christie has touted an improved state economy, but polls indicate that many New Jersey residents consider the local economy to be mending at best. The state's unemployment rate remains below the national rate, but employers cut 14,000 private-sector jobs according to the most recent report, and New Jersey has the nation's highest foreclosure rate, led by Atlantic City and Trenton.
• Single Family Closed Sales were up 7.3 percent to 3,208.
• Townhouse-Condo Closed Sales were up 9.4 percent to 699.
• Adult Communities Closed Sales were up 15.4 percent to 75.
• Single Family Median Sales Price increased 1.3 percent to $400,000.
• Townhouse-Condo Median Sales Price increased 0.7 percent to $269,450.
• Adult Communities Median Sales Price increased 9.3 percent to $345,375.
With mortgage rates remaining low, the pull toward homeownership is expected to continue. Yet housing starts have been drifting lower, and some are beginning to worry that a more serious housing shortage could be in the cards if new construction and building permit applications continue to come in lower in year over year comparisons while demand remains high. Homebuilder confidence suggests otherwise, so predictions of a gloomy future should be curbed for the time being.

I moved to Hunterdon County in 1986. I am originally from Staten Island, NY. We moved here with two young sons (6 & 3) who are now adults. I spent most of my adult life in sales. I started my career in real estate in 1990.
I enjoy my family. Arthur and I have been married for 35 years. We have 2 sons and 2 beautiful daughter-in-laws. They have given us 3 grandsons, 1 granddaughter and our newest member of the family, a 4th grandson. They all live locally and I am happy about that. I treasure when the grandchildren come to our house and want to sleep over. I enjoy cooking. I spend time daily exercising.

Claudia and her husband Arthur were extremly helpful to me as I was going through a divorce and needed to find a new home. They are very knowledgeable about the area and homes in general. They responded to my calls within 20 minutes and were able to get me showings within an hours notice. Finding the right place is not easy but they helped me every step of the way. I'm very pleased with this experience and would highly recommend them to anyone!
After 20 years of house hunting and 3 failed purchase attempts we are finally living in our dream home. This would not have been possible without Claudia's help. Claudia helped us compromise where necessary and overcome rather than flee the obstacles. When making the biggest purchase of you life it is important to work with someone you trust. In my experience Claudia proved to be completely trust worthy. I can't thank her enough.
My wife and I started our search for a home in mid-2015. We were first-time home buyers without a clue and we were fortunate enough to be paired with Arthur and Claudia Marquardt. We spent more than a year scouring Hunterdon County for the perfect fit, all the while balancing budget, commutes and an ever-changing list of must-haves. Never once did they make us feel as if we were wasting their time or being too picky. Instead, they spent all that time educating us on the workings of a home and guiding us through the home buying process. Where some realtors might have tried to make light of potential home problems to make a sale, Arthur and Claudia were so clearly on our side. They sought out disrepair and negligence to keep us informed and make us aware of every potential cost to get each home up to code and keep it that way, inside and out. The wait for our home was well worth it and the experience with Arthur and Claudia was invaluable. We love our new home and at the same time miss searching for one. My wife and I cannot recommend Arthur and Claudia enough!
Joe Hughes & Abbie Davis
Claudia and Arthur were very patient during the search process as well as accomodating. Their knowledge of the area and the history were an incredible help when choosing the area we wanted to be in. We would definitely recommend them when looking to purchase a home in Hunterdon County.

Hi Arthur --
Dear Mr. Lou Keleher,
My husband, Ed, and I just wanted to pass on our compliments concerning the Marquardt team. Claudia was the listing agent on our home in Clinton at 83 Grayrock Rd. We have moved 7 times in the course of our marriage and this was by far the best experience.
Arthur took pictures and created a virtual tour that showed our home to great advantage. Claudia was our daily contact person. She has been extremely reliable and helpful and is one of those rare individuals who delivers what she promises in a timely manner. Her knowledge of the market helped us to reach a realistic selling price. In this buyer’s market, it took a combination of open houses, savvy marketing, and perseverance to get our home sold. Claudia’s patience with our numerous phone calls and questions was appreciated.
When the buyer’s agent was unable to help, she made herself available to our buyer (who was out-of-state) and answered many of his questions/concerns about housing costs in the area and, in particular, about future development near our property. That she did this with a smile and without complaint says much about her character.
On September 19th, we successfully closed the sale of our home in Clinton and we are convinced this is because of Claudia and Arthur Marquardt.
Recently, we put a purchase offer on a home in Lake Cushetunk and this time used Claudia as a buyer’s agent. Ed and I know that we will have a smooth closing on this property as well. We won’t hesitate to recommend this team to friends and family and wanted you to know what an asset they are to your company.
Our Realtors, Team Marquardt (Arthur and Claudia)
When we were ready to move out of NYC, we contacted a few realtors. We had to contact other realtors several times for their return call or before we finally got to talk to them, but Arthur was responsive, luckily for us. First we requested him to show us several houses, and honestly we did not know what to expect from the house hunting yet. Arthur had an excellent impression on us from the first time. When we met him, he wanted to know what kind of house we are looking for but he really wanted to know what we are like. He showed us the different routes we could take, because he found out that we will be still commuting to NYC, showed us shopping areas, point of interest, and even the parks, because we are outdoor people. At each house, he was very diligent and had very good knowledge on picking the potential problems or positive things we could do to make further improvement on the house. The day with him did not end yet. After we returned to his office, he showed us what we can do on the internet for our house hunting. He set up our criteria in more detail for us to get the search by emails and showed us different useful websites for us to look up. He did it all for us, since he knew we did not live in the area where we were looking for a house. In this way, we were able to maximize our time with him. At the end of the day, we felt like we also got to know him well. We did not find the house that day, but we surely found the great realtor. After t first meeting, Arthur and Claudia were at every step of our house purchase process. One time we had our heart set for this particular house. Arthur went out to see the house for us before he showed us the house and sent us pictures of it from inside and outside, just to make sure that we won’t be disappointed when we actually see the house. Arthur and Claudia both came out so show us the house even on the day of their grandchild’s christening. All the information we need was notified by them promptly. Even after we completed the closing, they called us to see how we are doing. Not only that, when we needed some help after our move and we did not know anybody in the area, we contacted our realtors and they helped us. Our house hunting experience could not be better without them. They guided us through the process, and we are very happy with our new house and their dedicated service. All we can say are we found great realtors and good friends.
Thank you so much, Arthur and Claudia.
Claudia and Arthur were so wonderful to work with we used them twice! Always attentive, professional and patient beyond belief; they took a lot of the stress out of the relocation experience. We've recommended them several times and would use them again tomorrow if we were in the market.
