I have been a real estate professional for the past 17 years. My husband and partner, John Schwartz, the other half of Team Lois and John, moved to Boynton Beach, Florida in December 2020. While keeping our team going at Keller Williams City Views in Fort Lee, NJ, we will now be serving new clients at Keller Williams Innovations in Boynton Beach for the Palm Beach and Broward County areas, specializing in 55+ gated communities, golf course communities and waterfront condos. As background, Edgewater had been my home for the past 34 years. I was active in my community of Edgewater where I served as an elected Councilwoman for 3 years and a member of the Planning Board for the 9 previous years. I would like to think that I contributed to making our tiny town into a premier destination on the Hudson River Gold Coast. I was a founder and President of AHOME (Affordable Housing of Metropolitan Edgewater) whose mission is to provide affordable OWNED housing to qualified families and President of the Edgewater Beautification Committee. I am proud to say that The New Jersey Association of Realtors (NJAR) honored me with the 2006 Good Neighbor Award –Third Place - for this project and that Bergen County Habitat for Humanity honored me with the Builder of Year Award for the same project that year. While serving the town, I became very familiar with property values and what can be done to enhance them. So when I chose my new profession, it was logical to choose real estate.
As a REALTOR®/Sales Associate with Keller Williams City Views in Fort Lee, NJ, I have been able to utilize my knowledge of Bergen County, Hudson County, the Gold Coast condo market and surrounding area single family home market, my contacts and my years of sales and marketing experience to create value for my clientele. I think out of the box to find solutions to problems and have been very successful in assisting my clients to buy and sell homes. With my husband, John Schwartz, a REALTOR®/Sales Associate and entrepreneur, We are ranked in the top 10% of all Bergen County Realtors. Together with my husband John Schwartz, we have continued our award winning success and we were awarded from one of Bergen County's leading developers the opportunity to lead a group of Keller Williams realtors in the conversion of the Waterford Towers senior community into a new luxury rental community called The Metropolitan. There we have rented over 250 units in the past 2 years and were awarded Top Agents for units transacted in 2017. Our combined sales since joining Keller Williams City Views has continued to grow and our Team Lois and John have a lifetime combined total sales of approximately $250,000,000.
We plan to continue our successes as members of our new Board in Florida and members of Keller Williams Innovations. We look forward to meeting you.
