The Power of the Christie’s Network: Turpin Real Estate’s Insider’s Guide to New Jersey

It’s always about who you know to get the inside track, isn’t it?  We love our partners in the Christie’s network: smart, independent, luxury-focused firms who know the high end of their markets cold.  We’ve asked Turpin Real Estate, our partners in New Jersey, to give us their top five insights on their Northern New Jersey market, which includes some of the loveliest towns and rural landscapes within reach of NYC.

  1. Excellent Schools: New Jersey is the tenth largest public school system in the United States, serving 577 municipalities in nearly 2,600 public schools. Many of these schools are recognized for their top performances in national publications and websites. There are scores of nationally-designated Blue Ribbon Schools as well as a variety of charter and special education schools. Additionally, a wealth of private schools, colleges and universities are in our turf, from small private pre-schools to Princeton University.
  1. Open Space: New Jersey has some of the country’s most progressive environmental policies.  One of the most enduring is the state’s Green Acres Program, created in 1961 to meet growing recreational and conservation needs. Together with public and private partners, Green Acres has protected over half a million acres of open space and provided hundreds of outdoor recreational facilities in communities around the state.
  1. Proximity to New York City: Many communities in New Jersey are less than an hour from Manhattan via interstate, trains, buses or ferries. Residents are also close enough to New York City to enjoy live performances, museums, cultural events, world-class shopping and exceptional restaurants.
  1. Diversity of Housing Stock: Whether your tastes run toward a restored antique home overlooking bucolic meadows or a penthouse with bold views of the New York skyline, we can help you find a great place to live.
  1. History: George Washington really did sleep here, and New Jersey’s history comes alive with its  National and State Parks. Learn about the genius of Thomas Edison at his lab in West Orange, visit the Ford Mansion and nearby Jockey Hollow which served as Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown, or tour of one of the historic lighthouses dotting the state’s 130 miles of Atlantic coastline.
