RESOURCES REAL ESTATE MOURNS THE LOSS OF COMPANY FOUNDER, CAROLYNN DIAKON | 1/30/19

RESOURCES REAL ESTATE MOURNS THE LOSS OF COMPANY FOUNDER, CAROLYNN DIAKON

SHREWSBURY, NJ  January 29, 2019:  With great sadness, Resources Real Estate announced the passing of founder and Senior Partner, Carolynn Diakon, at home among family on January 27, 2019.

Diakon created Resources Real Estate to fill a need for an independent, non-corporate, agency with a highly trained sales and support staff and top-of-the-line marketing. She opened her first location in 2000. Her focus was always on providing exceptional service to clients and hiring agents who subscribed to the highest level of professionalism, ethics and training.

Diakon’s bold, sometimes brash, out-of-of-the-box thinking yielded great results which resulted in the company’s numerous accolades including being listed on Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. — the Inc. 5000 — for three years running, as well as NJBiz250 which similarly recognizes the top private companies in New Jersey.  The company has also received multiple awards for its marketing.

Active in her local community, Diakon was a philanthropist and advocate for many causes. She worked and supported numerous local charities including Monmouth Historical Association, Mental Health Association of Monmouth County, Lunch Break and 180 Turning Lives Around and was awarded the Clara Barton Corporate Humanitarian Award by the NJ Red Cross in 2013. Diakon was a contributor to the Huffington Post and Forbes.com, a frequent recipient of the NJ Realtor Circle of Excellence award, a member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, the Board of Regents of Luxury Real Estate and the Forbes Real Estate Council.

Both of Diakon’s adult children, Christopher Ozar and Gabrielle Diakon, are currently agents with the company and have expanded the company’s business into Hudson County, NJ. Her husband, Bob Diakon, has been an active participant in the company’s activities.

Along with partner Thomas McCormack, Diakon grew the company to over 90 agents and staff with four sales locations including its new Shrewsbury office which opened last week. Diakon was always active in expanding the company and new business development. This past year the company opened a real estate school, NJ Real Estate Prep, a corporate management and marketing center and a title company, Resources Title.

“Carolynn’s passing is a tremendous loss, not just for Resources Real Estate, but for the entire real estate community,” said McCormack. “We have heard from agents across the country and around the globe expressing their grief. She had a commanding and dynamic presence that filled the room. Her passion for living life to the fullest, persevering despite obstacles and always striving for something greater has inspired many both within and outside our company to excel. And that legacy will be felt for years to come.”

Resources Real Estate Releases Its Third Quarter Market Report | 11/19/18

Resources Real Estate Releases Its Third Quarter Market Report

A TALE OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND

Shrewsbury, NJ, November 15th, 2018 – Resources Real Estate has announced that it has released its Third Quarter Market report for 2018. The report, which can be found on the company’s website, tells the tale of shrinking inventory, and higher prices in certain price ranges  for many of the towns in Monmouth County.

With homes on the market for a shorter period of time, turnover is a main thrust of the report. Homes were selling quicker, with “Days on the Market” down almost across the board. Lower inventory, which has been a factor in the national real estate narrative, was an issue for 75% of Resources Real Estate’s surveyed markets. The good news is that the median sale price was up in 75% of the surveyed markets, as well as in the county as a whole. Unit sales were up in half of the communities surveyed.

“The supply vs. demand dynamic is always at work and our market is no exception,” said Carolynn Diakon, Founder and Senior Partner, “Scarcity brings the opportunity of higher prices,” she said. However, pricing correctly, readying the property for the marketing launch and the superior level of the marketing we offer makes a huge difference to the successful sale – even when limited supply.

“For buyers, it means being diligent and working with a professional who has the tools and market knowledge to help you succeed in identifying suitable properties quickly, understanding market value and implementing a strategy to make sure an offer is accepted,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner. “Likewise, for sellers, blind enthusiasm is not the best strategy for success and smart pricing remains key,” he said.

Prime Commercial Property in Red Bank Sells With Resources Real Estate | 10/25/18

Prime Commercial Property in Red Bank Sells With Resources Real Estate

JO ANN DAVENPORT RESOURCES REAL ESTATE COMMERCIAL DIVISION SELLS ONE BROAD STREET

Red Bank, NJ: Jo Ann Davenport, Resources Real Estate Commercial Division Manager recently sold One Broad Street in Red Bank in less than thirty days. The retail property, which is in a prime commercial location at the gateway to the town’s downtown, had been for sale with multiple brokers and by owner for the last four years.

One Broad Street, a mixed use building and former home of Heritage Liquors, sits on a prime corner of Red Bank’s retail district — at Broad and Front Streets.

“All this property needed was the right team behind it,” said Jo Ann Davenport, Resources Real Estate Commercial Division Manager. “We were able to use our extensive resources to market the property for optimum exposure and identified the buyer in less than 30 days.”

“This is one of the best retail locations in Red Bank but clearly needed a true local market expert to get it sold otherwise it wouldn’t have sat on the market for so long,” said Carolynn Diakon, Founder and Senior Partner of Resources Real Estate.  “The sale of this property is a testament to the power of our firm. We know the Red Bank commercial market and have the know-how to get the job done. Jo Ann Davenport did an excellent job.”

“The expansion of our commercial division under Jo Ann Davenport’s supervision is an exciting development for Resources Real Estate,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner. “In addition to the quick sale, this transaction was notable because of its sale price at $367 per square foot — recent sales have been closer to $290.”

With the company’s focus on training and marketing, Resources Real Estate’s commercial division is already seeing positive growth.

“This sale speaks to our brand’s power and position in the marketplace,” said Davenport. “We are excited to be working with more and more commercial clients throughout Monmouth County.”
