And the Bronze goes to…

Since opening its doors in September 2016, Green Team New Jersey Realty has had a steady showing at the Circle of Excellence award ceremonies. In fact, most of the 2020 recipients have received awards in past years.

And this year, Charles Nagy, Ted Van Laar, Alison Miller, Barbara Tesa, and Heidi Hyland are joined by Pam Zachowski.

According to Geoff Green, President of Green Team Realty,

“It was inspiring to sit back and watch all of these great Realtors receive their awards.  When you put 2020 into perspective in terms of the pandemic, the stop caused by the pandemic, then the massive influx of NYC residents to our market territory, it’s really an exhausting picture.  These people were not only able to survive it but to thrive in it.  I would take this team into the fox hole with me at any time for sure.  You will not find a more capable group of Real Estate professionals.”
