With 20 years of corporate national account experience and 10 years working in local real estate, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I believe a home is not just a house, but a lifestyle. I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Betsy is very supportive and trust worthy. Unlike some other agents who just say nice things, she gives candid and genuine opinions/advice to help us make better informed decision. She is reliable and responsive. She is always either early or on time for appointments which demonstrate her commitment and professionalism. When some challenges occurred with counterpart during the process, Betsy's professionalism and her abilities to handle the situation really help to navigate to weather the challenges. I felt I was in good hands. I strongly recommend Betsy if you want someone with experience and good support."
Jason, Livingston, NJ
"Betsy expertly guided us through the sale process. Gave us great advice as to what improvements to make for the best return from our investment. She shared contacts with us to get the work done and house cleared out. And also did a great job staging the house to look it's best. We could not have done it without her!"
Ellen, Livingston NJ
"Betsy Bergman goes above and beyond in every aspect of her job. We picked Betsy to sell my Dad's house. There are four siblings who all know many agents, but everyone felt very comfortable entrusting Betsy to sell the house that we all grew up in (sentimental). Betsy was very sensitive to this and very accommodating and respectful of the family's wishes in handling the property. She recommended people for work that needed to be done that were reasonable in price and reliable and produced quality work (Exterminator, painter, cleaners). In fact, she would often meet the people at the house and saved our family a trip which was so appreciated (We all live about 40 minutes away from the house).We had that much confidence in her decisions that needed to be made and in directing some of the subcontractors. The house went on the market around July 4th and we were closed early in August. She meticulously handled all the issues to close the deal quickly. The house sold for greater than the asking price. My family expressed over and over how thankful we were to have Betsy handle this transaction."
Brenda, Madison, NJ
“We are very fortunate to have found Betsy. She was incredibly helpful with the process of searching for our first home. Aside from being very professional and knowledgeable, Betsy genuinely cares about her clients and it felt like working with a close friend. She provided us with great advice and support throughout our journey and continues to do so even after we have settled into our new home. If and when the time comes for us to find our next home, we will definitely turn to Betsy for help again.”
Jill, Garwood NJ
"We loved working with Betsy on both selling our old house and buying a new one. Betsy was able to provide us with the right level of guidance that helped us through the entire selling and buying process. She was always available - day or night - to meet with us or to answer our questions."

Thank you for helping me sell my house. You are an excellent and tough negotiator. Remarkably, you are also warm, caring , resourceful and perceptive. You always knew what was needed and had the resourcefulness to solve any issue. . You were unbelievably helpful to me in planning and working side-by-side with me to physically move from my home of over forty years, and later to move to my new home. I am an elderly, legally blind man who is not so sure I could have done it all without you.
Thank you. I wish you continued success. I will be happy to heartily recommend you to anyone who wishes to sell or buy a house. "

Joel C. Gelbman, DDS - Livingston, NJ
"We got to know Betsy at an open house. We were very happy with the service she offered. She was fair, patient, professional, and diligent in her work. She painstakingly helped us resolve every concern that we had on the house, no matter how small it was. We have been very happy since we moved to town."
Jun and Rose, Livingston NJ
"Thanks to Betsy's hard work, solid advice, and smart insight, selling the house was a seamless and terrific experience. We were no longer living in the area at the time of the sale, and she both anticipated and then took care of all of our sale-related needs. We got the best advice from her; she made selecting a realtor easy. When we needed some help down the road with another matter, she was there for us again. Betsy really went above and beyond to make sure that we got the help we needed. She was super responsible AND responsive. I recommend her absolutely."

"A big thanks for Betsy for helping us to find our new home in Livingston! From the very first time we met she was there to answer all of our questions and to provide us with tons of useful information and advice. Her greatest assets are her broad expertise, kindness and the always-willing-to-help attitude - with all this we managed to find the best rental matching with our needs and we moved in very quickly. Ever since then we're fully satisfied with our choice that she recommended - even after moving in she also helped us in various matters related to the rental and settling in. Thank you!"
