FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Todd’s Book Break Launched by Resources Real Estate Agents

Red Bank, NJ, November 28th, 2017 – This Thanksgiving season, the children of Red Bank had one more thing to be thankful for.  Resources Real Estate’s sales associates (and husband and wife) Allison and Mark Gregory launched Todd’s Book Break at the corner of Bank & Tilton streets in Red Bank, right next to their home at 109 Bank Street. Todd’s Book Break is a small library that allows children in the area to borrow books as well as leave donated books.  The library box was created in honor of Norma Todd, the former owner of the house.

A longtime Red Bank resident, Norma Todd, who passed in April 2008, was famous for co-founding Lunch Break, a non-profit charity organization that provides food, clothing, life skills and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.  Mrs. Todd served as the organization’s Executive Director for more than 25 years and left a legacy of love and determination as her banner.

The name Todd’s Book Break was chosen by Norma Todd’s daughters, Angela Todd and Ann Todd.  The daughters wrote a book about their adventures traveling the world with their mother and father, James Todd, who served in the US Foreign Services.  Copies of the book are also available at Todd’s Book Break.

“When we bought the house we didn’t know Norma Todd used to live here,” said Mark Gregory. “The library box was inspired by the steady flow of visitors to the house.  These were people whose lives had been influenced by Norma Todd.  They wanted to share stories and, I think, make sure we knew how special the home we bought was.  We realized we have to keep her memory alive.”

Allison and Mark held a small ribbon cutting ceremony on October 28th to dedicate the library box.  Guests at the ceremony included Gwendolyn Love, the current executive director of Lunch Break, several representatives of the local Republican Committee, who donated the box, and colleagues from Resources Real Estate, who assisted with refreshments, materials and distributing flyers to get the word out.  Home & Land Development of Rumson mounted the library box in the ground, and the library was ready to go.

“Both Mark and I are proud agents at Resources,” said Allison Gregory.  “We are grateful for their support of this event and for helping to make it happen.”

OCTOBER, 2017 – We’ve been busy! As members of the global Board of Regents of Luxury Real Estate we were in Toronto earlier this month as part of their annual international conference where Resources Real Estate was nominated for 5 marketing awards and honored for our company’s special culture & agents. While there, Tom was a featured panelist (Carolynn has been a past conference panelist) and we deepened our relationships with brokers from around the world. This esteemed gathering is a critically important source for new trends and business practices in our industry, as well as referrals, and their acknowledgment of our achievements is greatly valued.

2017 3rd Qtr Market ReportThe following week Resources Real Estate was in Palm Desert, CA, to be honored as part of the Inc. 5000 – the fastest-growing private companies in America. Having now been named to Inc. Magazine’s list for the 2nd year in a row is a powerful independent confirmation of our sales success on a national level. We are one of only two NJ real estate firms to be honored.

Closer to home, we have been awarded NJBiz250, presented to the top 250 private businesses in the state of New Jersey because of outstanding growth and sales.

And to share some of this red carpet love with our sales team, later this month, we will be rewarding our top agents with a luxury vacation at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, FL, in recognition of their having received the NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence Sales Award.

Frequent flyer miles & trophies aside, all of this celebration is due to our sales growth & superior marketing efforts which resulted this quarter in a YTD unit sales increase of 21% over last year… significantly higher than the Monmouth County average of 12%.

We are proud of our progress and of our exceptional sales team & staff and are pleased to serve the residents of Monmouth County with our sales & marketing expertise. Please let us know if you have any questions about the market in general, home values, or other real estate concerns.
