Long Branch, NJ — Resources Real Estate announced the completion of residential leasing of 59 Brighton Ave, Long Branch, NJ. The recently constructed mixed use building of 12 residential units and two street-level retail units is located just one block from the ocean beach in the West End section of Long Branch.
“Marketing these rental properties was much the same as what we would do if we were selling them,” said agent Sahar Karykous of Resources Real Estate’s Shrewsbury sales office.
Her strategy included conducting open houses, extensive Facebook advertising and through videos, live streaming and more, Karykous emphasized the amenities as well as the oceanside location.
The building features 1 and 2 bedroom units each with a balcony, private laundry and an ocean view with shared rooftop access, gym, storage and security.
When assuming the project in March 2020, the property was 80% vacant and was completely occupied by November.
“The rate of vacancy is very important to investors, the ability to eliminate it with success, and quality in a short time is very important,” said Karykous, “I am pleased to have completed the project and look forward to more residential sales & leasing in the area in 2021.”
“The market in Long Branch in general and West End in particular is very strong,” said Thomas McCormack, Broker of Resources Real Estate.
“With all of the new development in progress along the oceanfront and now extending inland, Long Branch is highly desirable right now.”

RUMSON, NJ: Resources Real Estate has been selected for membership into Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (Leading RE), Thomas McCormack, Broker and Senior Partner announced today. This global real estate community comprises 550 real estate companies awarded membership based on rigorous standards for service and performance.
“As a member of LeadingRE, Resources Real Estate combines authentic, local expertise with unparalleled global resources,” said McCormack. “Combined with our membership in Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, this elevates our brand, our agents, our marketing and provides even greater international exposure for our clients through new marketing channels and referral relationships.”
Leading RE membership is awarded only to select, market-leading companies that have demonstrated excellence in service delivery and results. “We are thrilled to have been welcomed into this esteemed organization,” said McCormack.
Headquartered in Monmouth County, NJ, Resources Real Estate is an established leader in the New Jersey residential and commercial real estate markets and is currently celebrating 20 years of success along with their team of approximately 100 agents and staff.
With its membership in Leading RE, the company’s reach extends far beyond the local area. With 4,600 offices and 135,000 sales associates in 70 countries, Leading RE firms represent 1.1 million global transactions annually. These connections bring global exposure and a broader pool of prospective buyers for the homes Resources Real Estate represents. And for those looking for real estate outside of the area — perhaps even out of the country — Resources Real Estate can now provide assistance through LeadingRE’s worldwide network of vetted real estate firms.
“We are delighted to have Resources Real Estate as part of our distinguished network of premier brokerages. The company has an impeccable reputation in New Jersey, and we are committed to helping the firm achieve even greater success,” said Paul Boomsma, president and CEO of Leading RE.
The value of being aligned with LeadingRE, however, is much more than just a discerning third-party endorsement. LeadingRE members have access to world-class resources for marketing, technology and professional development for sales agents and staff.
“In an industry made up of over 100,000 brokerages characterized by dramatically inconsistent service delivery and customer experience, our members set the standard for quality in the markets they serve,” said Boomsma.
Membership in LeadingRE is highly coveted and the network’s commitment to quality is taken very seriously: only 20% of the companies that inquire about membership are extended an invitation to affiliate, according to Boomsma.
“All of our firms are deeply rooted in their communities – independently owned, with an uncommon local knowledge that allows them to help clients make better-informed real estate decisions,” Boomsma said.
“We have seen great volatility in our industry locally with mergers and acquisitions consolidating much of our competition,” said McCormack, “This has only strengthened our belief in the value of being an independent, locally-owned firm offering world class brokerage services that are not subject to the shareholder pressures and corporate interests of ‘big box’ real estate companies.” McCormack added, “We are fiercely proud of our independence and our partnership with LeadingRE will further support our mission to provide award-winning exceptional service to our clients.”
