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.

New on the Blog: Who Knew? 10 Surprising Things Realtors Do 🏡

Some people think being a New Jersey-based real estate agent is an easy way to make lots of money while keeping a flexible schedule. Think again!

To be successful as a real estate agent you need to cultivate a varied skill set including marketing, construction and design, economics, negotiating, project management, accounting, human resources and psychology (believe me some days my skills as a crack psychologist are critically important).

In reality, we have a checklist of up to 90 items on our standard “transaction checklist” that encompasses all we do with a client from beginning to end.

With the number of moving pieces on any real estate transaction, this is how we are able to repeatedly deliver a seamless, luxury experience to our clients.

Do you have a real estate question on your mind? Do not hesitate to email me at [email protected]. There’s nothing more exciting for me than chatting real estate, and I’d be happy to share my expertise with you!

Here is our May Market Minute 🏡

Prices have gone ⬆️ year-to-date from April 2022 to April 2023, but days on market has also increased and list price to sale price ratios are not necessarily as high as they’ve been in the last couple of years.

This is telling us that prices may increase slowly but may be leveling off.

It’s still competitive for buyers out there with very low inventory and lots of houses are continuing to get multiple bids.

Our team has years of knowledge and experience with the best contractors and service providers in our area. So if you ever have a house question or need a great recommendation for someone to take care of something in your house, please use us as a reference!

We are always happy to connect you with the best and it’s so important to have great people to help you maintain your home. Feel free to reach out with any house or real estate questions!

West Orange living at its best. 🏡

This home almost didn’t hit the market. We love it so much that we almost snapped it up! 😍

Perched like an aerie with wonderful city views, this Tudor gem has a current and cohesive style throughout, as it was attentively and lovingly renovated by its designer sellers with excellent taste.

The side porch has views over Manhattan, and it flows to the level backyard. Backed by a wooded ravine you’ll have plenty of privacy.

Absolutely nothing to do here but move in, relax on your side porch, and enjoy the view!

Great location in close proximity to Hazel School and Seton Hall Prep, jitney to NYC train and highway transportation.
