Building on the success of the global real estate brand’s Hoboken location, Engel & Völkers owner Lisa Troyano-Ascolese announced the opening of a second shop location in Jersey City on June 9.
A grand opening event is scheduled for Wednesday at 4 p.m at the new location at 284-286 1st St., featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by a 5:00 p.m. reception in front of the new shop in the Hard Grove Cafe parklet, located directly next door.
In expanding the company’s footprint to Jersey City, Troyano-Ascolese and her team of real estate advisors will continue to service home buyers and sellers across Hudson and Bergen counties, including Jersey City Downtown, Jersey City Heights and Jersey City Journal Square.
“There’s a natural overlap between the Hoboken and Jersey City real estate markets,” said Anthony Hitt, president and chief executive officer, Engel & Völkers Americas. “Residents are looking for more options and space when it comes to real estate while still enjoying easy access to Manhattan. However, the communities here offer so much more than a 15-minute commute into the city. Lisa has a true understanding of what makes each neighborhood unique.”
Just a few blocks from the Grove Street PATH station, Engel & Völkers Jersey City will assist area residents in navigating a fast-paced market that boasts a distinct mix of old and new–offering everything from high-rise lofts and modern waterfront condo buildings to 100-year-old brownstones at a variety of price points.
“Jersey City’s proximity to New York City is what may initially attract interested buyers from Manhattan and elsewhere,” said Troyano-Ascolese. “But it is the people, culture, art and food that makes them stay. Our expansion here has been fluid and makes total sense; Jersey City is a global community and Engel & Völkers is a global real estate network comprised of experts from around the world that specialize within their local markets. There may be a great deal of industry noise at the moment, but our attention remains laser-focused on marketing properties at the highest level of professionalism and individualized service.”
