We Salute our Veterans

Today we salute our veterans: Past, present, old, young, those who served in combat and those who have in other ways.

Each and every one of them answered the call to defend freedom at all costs to benefit something larger than themselves; the greater good of the United States of America.

Team Spirit Oct 2014

Each month at Resources Real Estate we acknowledge the efforts of our agents – not only production but also team spirit.

Some transactions are so stressful and where others would throw their hands up and give up, we know that hanging in there and thinking outside the box and coming up with solutions that will get the client to the finish line is hard. We salute those agents that keep going to make it happen for their clients.

Resources Launches Digital Magazine

RUMSON, NJ: RESOURCES Real Estate in Rumson is proud to announce the launch of their new quarterly digital magazine, Portfolio Homes.

Each issue will highlight many listings as well as feature a local tastemaker, a building/design professional, and a Resources agent. The magazine will be available for online distribution and all agents are encouraged to forward to clients and database, to post it on Facebook and elsewhere on the web. The content will not be generic, syndicated material, but rather it will provide live links to content beyond the magazine.

Liz Mahon designed the magazine’s layout, individual property spreads, cover and masthead. Liz did an excellent job and we should congratulate Liz on her fine work,” said Carolynn Diakon, Broker-Senior Partner. “Of course, our professional property photos are another reason the magazine looks so good. Not every listing makes it into the magazine and the type of spread that a listing receives is decided in part by the photos available. If an agent wants to make sure a particular listing is included in the next edition, high quality photos should be made available.”

This issue will include:

  • Full spreads for select properties including 80 West River Road and 890 Navesink River Road
  • Feature article on local tastemaker, Claire Knopf
  • Q&A with local builder Kevin Hughes
  • Featured Agent Profile on Linda Gillespie
  • Featured Agent Ads of Helen George and Mary Lynn Hughes

“Let us know if you have suggestions for local tastemakers to profile,” said Thomas McCormack, Broker-Managing Partner. “We’ll be featuring the builders in our new construction division over the next few issues.”

Featured Agent Profiles will be selected from all of our agents who have completed and submitted their Your Agent listing presentation page for review and fulfill a minimum level of sales production. Agents should be sure to complete and submit their agent page for consideration.
