Allison Ziefert

After a dozen years in real estate I love my job more than ever. I am blessed to have a career that combines several of my passions– architecture and design, building community and helping people.

I am a founding agent of Compass NJ where I lead a top-producing team.

Before I became a realtor, I worked as a project manager for a large construction management firm, ran a downtown development organization and worked in local politics. I studied Art History at Barnard College and received a degree in Urban Planning and Historic Preservation from Columbia University. My educational background and work experience have given me a unique skill set that is an added value for my clients. I enjoy meeting and working with all kinds of people and I never get tired of looking at houses!

I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and have lived in Maplewood/South Orange since 1995. I have three children- two who are out on their own and one in high school. You’ll often see me out on long walks in my neighborhood with my dachshund, Archie. I also love fitness classes, cooking and antiquing.

When it comes to local eats, Northern New Jersey is a real slice of life! 😉

Living in suburban NJ communities, great pizza is something that we consistently expect and can get around here. Local eateries are often a critical part of a homebuyer’s decision-making process and help create that special sense of place that makes each town special. After all, if you’re not factoring in local pizza joints, how serious are you really about buying?

Here are some of our favorites:
🍕 Village Trattoria
🍕 Roman Gourmet
🍕 Razza
🍕 Arturo’s
🍕 Reservoir

And that's just to name a few! Head over to our stories to read more on the blog. 💻

Guiding Our Clients from A to Z ✨

“We were so overwhelmed at the prospect of buying and selling locally, but Ginge and the entire A to Z team made it as painless as possible! They are true experts in the local market and guided us through every step of the process with ease. They are responsive, well-connected, friendly, positive, and professional. They were honest and detailed with us about exactly what we needed to do to prepare our house for sale, and the result of our collective effort was a sale price beyond what we hoped for. They also helped us find and secure our beloved forever home! It was a true pleasure to work with Ginge and the team; we cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Ask Allison Series: Finding the Right Agent 🏡

Here are some things to keep in mind when you're talking to an agent about representing you in the sale of your home!

There are 3 topics that are very important: Price, Communication, & Marketing.

✔️ You want to make sure the agent knows the market very well and has sold many homes in your area so that they can price your home correctly!

✔️ Communication is also a huge component in the home selling process. Make sure they have a good system in place to keep in touch with you throughout the process.

✔️ Take a look at their marketing plan and make sure everything looks super professional and that you feel confident that they will present your home in the best light!

BONUS TIP: Reviews & Testimonials! These are a great indicator of the type of service that you will receive from that agent! ✨

7 Ways to Add Interest to Your Kitchen 🍽️

While a new kitchen is a wonderful thing to behold, with smooth, clean surfaces, gleaming tiles and backsplashes, it can sometimes feel like something is missing. As beautiful as it may be, if your new kitchen is lacking character, it can feel soulless.

Here's how kitchen experts answer the question: How can I add interest to my kitchen? ⬇️

✨ Choose Shaker-Style Cabinets for a Look That Never Dates

✨ Add Texture and Drama with Dark, Natural Materials

✨ Brighten with Backsplash Tiles

✨ Install Statement Lighting

Add More Than One Timber to the Scheme

✨ Add Interest to a Kitchen with Layering

✨ Add an Unexpected Sculptural Lighting Design
