Providing Excellent Service with Specialized Partnerships
As a REAL ESTATE BROKER with over 13 years full-time experience, I have had great success and enjoyment working with an experienced professional partner. Susan DeRosa and I manage RESIDENTIAL sales as The Gill Home Team. Our primary market includes towns in Essex and Bergen counties that serve the NYC commuter base, and our network includes real estate attorneys, lenders, architects, inspectors, contractors, designers and other relevant professionals.
Susan DeRosa is a highly experienced sales agent with 25+ years in residential real estate, and a home stager whose work has been featured in the HGTV series "Bought and Sold", New York Times, Star Ledger and ABC Nightly News. She has a wonderful and calming demeanor. Her experience, attention to detail, dependability, and strong negotiating skills bring together the essential elements needed to guide home sellers and homebuyers through a successful, though sometimes emotional, real estate experience. We’ve worked with: homeowners buying up, downsizers, first-time homebuyers, pro-athletes and people in the music business, and families dealing with transition - divorce, estates, guardianships, foreclosures, short sales and relocations. Be sure to check out The Gill Home Team website at www.TheGillHomeTeam.com.
We are fluent in Social Media and Internet marketing as well as traditional marketing. We do our research, are straight-shooters, follow through and follow up, and know how to negotiate. Guided by core values of Integrity, Success, Excellence, Dependability and Energy, we are empowered to provide the highest level of customer service.

I've lived in Montclair since 1990 where I raised 3 awesome kids. My son Tanner is attending Colgate University, Class of 2018, and is a graduate of Montclair Kimberley Academy (MKA Class of 2014) where he attended since 6th grade, previously at Edgemont School. Both of my daughters graduated from MKA. Bonnie (MKA '03) graduated from Boston University in 2006, got her masters from the American University in Paris, and is currently attending the University of Virginia in a doctorate program. Hannah (MKA '07) graduated from James Madison University in Virginia in'07, spent a full successfull years as a licensed NYC real estate agent, and has now moved to Austin Texas.
Work Hard/Play Hard/Smile Often
Cycling, jazz, good food, sports, art .... these are my passions.
In 2013 I rode my bikes over 2200 miles - road, mountain bike and touring: Nova Scotia, riding with the wounded vets as a safety marshal, Lancaster County PA, New Jersey Winery tour, and many 'local' rides. My cycling goal for 2014 is 2000 miles including a multi-day tour of Cape Cod. I attend numerous Jazz events including the Newport Jazz Fest, NYC jazz clubs and local events; I enjoy good food whether home-cooked or out, or at events such as the Montclair Food Fest and Amanti Vino's Cru vs Brew; I'll rework my schedule to catch a Giants, Yankees, Knicks (oh, never mind!) game and of course, Tour de France; Storm King Sculpture Park and Dia: Beacon are two of my favorite places, and you'll catch me at the Montclair Art Museum, any of the NYC museums, and local art events. With my colleague Lynne Oliver, we co-direct The Gallery at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties, Montclair office.
I'm an alumna of Wellesley College and Drew University.

I wanted to thank you for all you have done to help our family with our move! We appreciate everything.

Real estate sales and administration is a long process involving relationship management, technical sales skills, knowledge of the real estate marketing and finance. Sharon did a great job in all of these areas for us, especially considering the terrible market in which we found ourselves.
- Joe & Lisa, residential seller and buyer
Sharon Gill saw an opportunity for my partner and me to sell our multi-family residential property. She approached us about it, convinced us she had a good idea and successfully brought the transaction to a happy conclusion. Her timing was impeccable and the results were very satisfactory. I am very happy to have worked with her.
