1. Best Marketing
Arlene provides the best presentation of your home–Arlene hires the best professional photographer to get the highest resolution photos. Arlene will have aerial shots done and dramatic night shots taken too! Our brochures are considered the best! The most thorough presentation! Our extensive marketing will get your home the maximum value. We market our listings in several platforms, ranging from digital to social media to print.
Digital: Our website, GonnellaTeam.com is consistently ranked by Google Search as one of the most visited websites in New Jersey Real Estate. We spend over $300,000 on internet marketing as a whole, more than any other agent in Short Hills. Furthermore, GonnellaTeam.com places your home on 30 other real estate search engines and websites across the country. We own 100% of the 07078 and 07041 slideshows on Trulia and Zillow. Arlene is the only agent in New Jersey that advertises on Juwai, the #1 Chinese international property portal, offering exclusive access to an audience of high net worth Chinese looking to buy property overseas.
One of our newest initiatives in digital marketing is via Zillow & Facebook – where Facebook will target those who have been actively searching on Zillow in a certain town and price range and send them our listings in that price range. So we’re targeting real prospective buyers that are frequently searching on Zillow in that price range and making sure that our listings are fresh in the minds!
More exposure = More buyers interested in your home = highest price possible!!

3. Qualifying Potential Buyers
We make sure potential buyers are not wasting your time by pre-qualifying them. You want to be working with potential buyers who can really afford your home.
4. Knows the market better than anyone
One satisfied seller said “For many realtors, selling real estate is a side gig or just a hobby. For Arlene, it is a passion. She knows the market better than anyone!” We know the market like the back of our hand. Arlene is very quantitative and will give you all the information you need to make a wise decision. Through detailed comparisons between your home and recently sold homes, and other properties currently on the local market, we can determine what your home is really worth. In the industry this is called a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA. We will do this for you, for free. Pricing your home right in the end gets you the highest possible price.
5. Staging and Design
We will arrange and pay for initial consultation with a terrific professional stager. We will walk through your home together and advise you on how to present your property to maximize its selling price. Some improvements are worth it, and some are not! We can recommend handymen who are responsible and within 24 hours will help you get your home ready for sale! We will put together a professional floor plan and professional photographs of interior and exterior of home. We will also create an interactive Google Earth Map, allowing clients to explore your neighboring streets online. We will help you understand what changes will help you get the highest price for your home.
Contracts are complicated, and intimidating. You don’t want to go to a closing with some doubts. You will have the full benefit of our Short Hills, Millburn and Summit real estate experience and knowledge for a smooth and successful closing. We recommend that you do not sign on any dotted lines without asking us first.
7. NJ Laws and Inspections
We will make sure you conform to any and all New Jersey statutory disclosure requirements. We will also inform you of any inspections that you should consider having done ahead of time to smooth the negotiating process with buyers to ensure a successful escrow and closing. If there is an issue discovered by inspections we will help you get estimates so the problem is quantified and resolved!
