The brokerage has offices throughout Northern New Jersey, Upstate New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania, including Butler, Byram, Fairfield, Little Falls, Oakland, Pompton Plains, Randolph, Sparta, Vernon, West Milford and Woodland Park in New Jersey, and Milford in Pennsylvania.  The firm also has affiliated companies that offer mortgage, title and home warranty services.

Realty Executives Exceptional Realtors recently received national recognition in the 2016 REAL Trends 500 report, placing in the top 500 real estate companies in the country ranked by closed unit transaction volume. 

“Our associates and our clients love our company, because we have professionals handling every aspect of the marketing and administration behind the scenes. Our support center staff handles all incoming phone calls and internet home inquiries and seamlessly forwards all calls and inquiries directly to the homes’ listing agent.  Who knows the house better than the listing agent?” asks Radford. “As logical as this system sounds, we are the only brokerage in New Jersey that operates this way,” he adds.
