Welcome to the Greater Bergen Association of Realtors®. By combining the former Eastern Bergen County Board of Realtors® with the former RealSource Association of Realtors® we now have over 7500 members throughout Bergen County, parts of Hudson County, and beyond. Our unified voice and commitment to building upon the strong history of excellence of both boards will allow us to rise to new heights!

Throughout the coming year we will be implementing changes as we combine operations. However, our focus will be to create as little disruption as possible for our members while building our new infrastructure. Our two offices and staff will continue operations as the Hasbrouck Heights Campus and the Waldwick Campus.

You are welcome to use the services and attend classes at either campus at your convenience. While we work to develop our new online home, you should continue to use the website of your previous board. 
If you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me or any of our leadership team. We’re counting on your participation and feedback to build the premier Association in North Jersey! 
Christopher Tausch,
 2019 President

Amazon First, Now Google and Apple? How These Major Expansions Impact Real Estate
Going into the new year, real estate is already expecting significant changes, including surrounding Amazon’s soon-to-be-built headquarters in both Long Island City and Crystal City. Now, Google and Apple are hopping onboard the expansion train, promising new jobs outside the West Coast which could attract an influx of relocating talent, possibly putting a strain on the local housing markets.
Help Clients Get Wise to Smart-Tech Hype
Smart choices are coming almost faster than you can say, “Alexa, please start the coffee.” Whether it’s Amazon’s virtual voice assistant obeying verbal commands, Google’s Nest Cam Indoor camera letting concerned relatives know grandma got safely out of bed, or Philips Hue’s smart lightbulbs altering a room’s ambience with the tap of a smartphone button, these products are changing how we now live in our homes.
