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.

Monthly Market Minute 🏡

“For the first time in 10 months, all the statistics I look at are trending positively.”
- Compass CEO Robert Reffkin, CNBC

If you missed it, Compass CEO Robert Reffkin made an appearance on CNBC this week to discuss the market and where he thinks we are heading in 2023. He believes that Q4 of 2022 was the bottom of the recent real estate market cycle and that things are really starting to pick back up!

Here are some of the key indicators as to why Robert Reffkin thinks that things are on an upward trend. ⬇️

1. 25% increase in weekly mortgage applications.

2. Mortgage rates continue to move down to a 4-month low.

3. Increase in buyer interest, open house traffic, and offers.

4. In the last quarter of 2022, 42% of sellers were giving concessions to buyers at the closing table, a 10-year high.

5. Home builder sentiment improved for the first time in 1 year.

6. Pending closings were down 30+% at points in the fall but over the last few weeks, we have seen pending listings in most of our markets nearly flat year over year.

What Our Clients are Saying ✨

"My husband and I had a wonderful experience in buying our first home with Allison’s group! We worked with Jaime Richter and truly had a painless and pleasant experience from beginning to end. We met Jaime at an open house and loved her energy. From first contacting her later to start the process of looking for our first house for our growing family through closing and to the present day, Jaime listened to what we wanted, was candid about what to expect, and genuinely cared about us. Jaime quickly helped us find the perfect house (which just happened to be the first house we saw) and get a great deal with a closing just a week before our son was born. It’s clear that Jaime really cares about her clients as she continues to check in on how we are doing and gives us much-needed advice as first-time homeowners. If you’re considering working with Allison’s group or with Jaime, I wouldn’t hesitate. They also know the Maplewood and West Orange areas extremely well!"

Inside Info: How We Select Comparable Sales To Price Your Home 🏡

If you are thinking of selling your home in Maplewood, South Orange, or surrounding towns after the holidays, one of the most critical decisions facing you is how to price it.

When you price your home correctly from the start you avoid leaving money on the table or having your home languish on the market. But how do you determine the best selling price for your home? ⬇️

That’s where a market analysis of “comparable sales” (“comps” for short) comes in.

Head over to our stories to read more in-depth about what comps are, and if you are wondering about the value of your home and how we would position it to perform its best in the market, don't hesitate to email Allison at [email protected] to set up a time to chat!

Next on the Ask Allison Series: Picking Comparables to Price Homes 🏡

Comps are recently sold homes in your neighborhood that are similar in size, style, and condition to yours. When looking for comps to price your home, you should try to compare apples to apples.

In Maplewood and South Orange that can be VERY tricky because no two homes are exactly alike (that’s what keeps me on my toes!).

When finding comparable homes, you should take into consideration the location, size, property type, style, features and condition, and intangibles.

Wondering about the value of your home and how we would position it to perform its best in the market? Do not hesitate to email me at [email protected] to set up a time to chat!

Mohonk Mountain House 🏔️

We took a trip to the historic Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY, and had the best time!

One of the greatest things about New Jersey is that so many easy weekend getaway spots are in close range like the Mohonk Mountain House. The mountain views are beautiful from the many porches and balconies. My daughter and I love to go there for getaways. It’s really a special place! We tried snowshoeing and spent too much time eating and in the spa. 🍽️

The place was decorated so nicely for the holidays with multiple trees and gingerbread houses in various themes. We highly recommend a getaway here!
