Real Estate Company Takes a Different Approach

waterfront marketing with a twist

RUMSON:  When most real estate agents “show a house” they usually drive up curbside, walk down the front walk and unlock the door.  One local real estate company takes a different approach… literally.  At least for waterfront homes.

Resources Real Estate, with offices in Rumson and Monmouth Beach, recently had their annual company boat launch party with a get-together at the Shrewsbury River Yacht Club in Fair Haven.  It was an opportunity for the agents to catch a little sun and learn a different way to market waterfront properties.

“We call our boat the ‘Resourceful’ and we find that it’s a unique way to market and show waterfront homes,” said Carolynn Ozar Diakon, senior partner and founder of the company.  “Let’s face it, when people want to live on the water, they want to experience it first-hand.  We thought it was important to provide them with water access.”

The 34’ boat is not just a way to travel to waterfront listings, it has also served  floating classroom for the past several years.

“We are lucky enough to live in an area with rivers, bays, lagoons and the ocean,” said Thomas McCormack, managing partner of the company.  “We’ve been able to learn first-hand about the local waterways and teach our agents so they have a better understanding of waterfront properties.”

Many agents said they have had clients who came to the area because they wanted to keep a boat at their home.  Others mentioned clients who are recreational fisherman or who enjoyed sailing and water sports.

“It makes a lot of sense because we sell a lot of waterfront homes,” said Helen George, sales associate.  “Anyone can open the door for you, but how many agents can allow you to arrive dockside to your new home?”

Diakon opened Resources Real Estate, a full service real estate company in 2000. McCormack, with the company since 2002, joined her as a partner in 2010.   Resources Real Estate is located at 112 East River Road in Rumson, NJ, and at 36 Beach Road in Monmouth Beach, NJ.  For more local real estate information or to inquire about a career in real estate, you can call 732-212-0440 or visit resourcesrealestate.com.

Re Bank Art Walk

Red Bank Art Walk a Success for Resources Real Estate

Red Bank, NJ – The arts are alive and well and growing in Red Bank– so much so that one local real estate company transformed itself into a gallery.

Resources Real Estate’s newest office recently served as one of the venues for the Red Bank Art Walk, held on Saturday, November 24th, with an exhibit showcasing the work of celebrity photographer and Red Bank native Danny Sanchez.  The show features photographs of notable musicians, artists, writers, and prominent professionals from the Red Bank area.  The images are from Sanchez’s “Forty Faces” exhibition which was presented at Monmouth University earlier this year.

“Resources Real Estate is honored to showcase Danny’s work and we encourage everyone to stop in to view the show and take a short break from this holiday season’s retail therapy,” said Carolynn Ozar Diakon, senior partner and broker of the company.   The exhibit will remain throughout the holidays and into the new year.

Also on display were portraits of Resources Real Estate’s agents who were all recently photographed by Sanchez as part of the company’s marketing and re-branding efforts. “Danny’s work with our agents is very special and we were eager to continue working together with this show,” said Thomas McCormack, Resources’ managing partner.

Resources Real Estate’s new location at 4A West Front Street (at the intersection of Broad Street) is the company’s third in addition to its flagship office in Rumson and a branch office in Monmouth Beach which opened earlier this year.
