Sales Associate JoAnn Davenport, who works in the Red Bank office, was named Agent of the Month.  This award is given to an agent in recognition of his or her sales success in the previous month including new listings, recent contracts and sold transactions, as well as past client recognition of their efforts, and other business-building activities.  JoAnn represented both buyers and sellers of the sale of the commercial property at 64-66 Bridge Avenue, both buyers and sellers of the multi-family home on 96-98 Wallace Street, and the rental of the residential property at 11 Louis Cir, all in Red Bank, and her closings for the month of February totaled $4,394,800.

The closing of the commercial property sale on 64-66 Bridge Avenue for $2,050,000 granted JoAnn two additional honors – the Commercial Agent of the Month Award and the coveted Significant Sale Award, given for a sale of a property above $2M.

“JoAnn is the Director of our swiftly-expanding Commercial Division,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker.  “Her more than 20 years of experience in real estate and specifically in Red Bank – a booming real estate town – has been a valuable asset in developing our commercial offerings and in maintaining our overall rapid growth.”

Tammy Brindise from the Rumson office was named the Top Listing Agent Award, an honor given to the agent with the most new listings for a given month.  Tammy’s four new listing for the month of February included the five-bedroom, six-bathroom single family home at 52 Blue Hills Drive in Holmdel, the newly constructed four-bedroom, three-bathroom 4050 square foot single family home at 44 Forrest Avenue in Rumson, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 3200 square foot single family home at 20 Blossom Road in Rumson, and the four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 4488 square foot single family home at 1484 Ocean Ave, Sea Bright, which offers incredible water views.  These last three listing propelled Tammy to also be named the Featured Luxury Agent, for having several property listings topping $1 million each.

The Rainmaker award was given to Mary Ellen Cestone from the Monmouth Beach office.  The Rainmaker award recognizes the efforts of agents to build their business in an innovative or otherwise significant way.  In pursuit of a home for a buyer client, Mary Ellen reached out directly to homeowners not currently on the market, an initiative that resulted not only in locating interested sellers, but bringing to the table multiple offers.

Lastly, the Perseverance Award was presented to Patrice Cicalese-Carden from the Monmouth Beach office.  This honor is given to a sales associate who closes a transaction despite great challenges.  Patrice managed to successfully close a high-end rental property that required a tremendous amount of diligence on her part in order to ensure the client was protected.


“February was another month showcasing productivity, determination and team spirit on the part of our team,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker. “We are continuing to grow our commercial division side by side with maintaining our successful residential division, and utilizing advanced marketing strategies to win listings and new exciting projects.”
