We have just finished production of a new video about living in South Orange and Maplewood, NJ that we are excited to share with you!



We planned a get-together with some local residents of South Orange and Maplewood to talk about life in these beautiful suburban communities. In our video you will get an inside view of the look and feel of SOMA through the eyes of these local residents. They talk about the town’s diversity, best features, commuting, schools and more.

When our residents were asked about the first thing that comes to mind when they think of South Orange and Maplewood, culture and community were highlighted. The many festivals and events throughout the year offer something to do for everyone of all ages. The ability to walk to the train, the village and the parks is a huge feature offering convenience and accessibility. The residents of South Orange and Maplewood have very diverse backgrounds and are welcoming and inclusive of all; they treat each other with kindness and respect.  And the area is beautiful with its many parks and gorgeous old trees.

The residents we spoke to also seemed to appreciate the short commute of approximately 30 minutes to NYC. It offers some quiet time to de-stress and focus or plan for the day. And the short walk to and from the station is a pleasant way to start and end a work day.

We hope you enjoy our video about living in South Orange and Maplewood as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Thank you to our wonderful clients who provided their perspective on living in South Orange and Maplewood. And thank you to Acres Land Title Agency, our local experts in title insurance, for their sponsorship of our video.
