Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in South Orange, NJ.

We had a great experience with Robert Northfield and his team. Robert expertly guided us through the process. He gave us sound advice on what we needed to do in preparation for listing the house. And when several other homes in the neighborhood came on the market within days of ours, he was undeterred and in fact encouraging. In the end, because of a couple unique characteristics, it was over six months before the right buyer came along. Throughout the entire process, Robert provided thoughtful, insightful and strategic counsel. He is also a masterful negotiator. We have already referred Robert to a couple of friends that are moving/downsizing and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of selling or buying a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in South Orange, NJ.

Robert is terrific. Patience is his virtue. He never tires of how many homes you'd like to see. We were impressed how he never forms any opinions of stops you from talking all you want about your home. We took nearly 5 months to decide on our dream home and through Robert's expertise landed just the place. We love it and thanks to Robert and his staff on making the move in so easy.

I'd highly recommend Robert when looking for a home in the area or surrounding areas. We spread our search into 3-4 towns and he was very good in sourcing the homes just to our taste and liking. Thanks Robert!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Maplewood, NJ.

Expertise that is above the rest. No pressure and always solid advice, he truly looks out for his clients and we are more than pleased with our home.

I highly recommend him and even one meeting with Robert will tell you why he is so highly ranked as a realtor and more importantly, the obvious choice.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Maplewood, NJ.

Robert is honest, very knowledgeable and a caring person. Who uses these gifts to assist his clients through the emotional process of buying and selling a home. He improved the visibility of our home to show the character that it had by bringing in some of his own personal pieces.

In addition, when we were not able to be at the house to tidy it up so it could show it's best light, he did!!

He is a huge asset to have on your side.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Maplewood, NJ.

My wife and I worked with Robert when we needed to find a new home to accommodate our growing family. He helped us thoroughly prepare our home for sale and we were able to sell it for asking in a matter of days - no need for an open house. The circumstances surrounding our purchase were much more challenging. We found ourselves in a tricky situation that no one but Robert could have guided us through. He was able to find us an ideal home for our family and make the deal happen just when we needed it. I wholeheartedly recommend Robert as an agent. He's extremely knowledgeable and more importantly, applies what he knows to truly deliver for his clients.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in North Caldwell, NJ.

We enjoyed working with Robert and were glad that chose him despite the fact that he did not specialize in specific geographic area where he normally works.

Despite the slow down in the market toward the end of summer, Robert and his team continued to hold open houses and offer creative ways to add appeal to our home.

We also very much appreciated that Robert negotiated on our behalf instead of simply acting as a middleman with other agents/buyers.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in West Orange, NJ.
Primary point of contact: Jill Sockwell

I had a great experience with Robert Northfield and his team. We had an offer within days of putting the house on the market-- we didn't even get a chance to have an open house. We got an offer for significantly over our asking price-- but after a very weird home inspector came and pointed out tons of stuff wrong with the house (none of which was actually a problem) I felt like the deal started getting out of control on the buyers side and they were constantly teetering on the bring of letting the deal fall through. At the last minute my husband and I agreed (without too much advice from our side) to simply lower the price in order to keep the deal alive. I am not saying that there is much Northfield's team could have done when the buyer is shakey, but at some points I felt like I was doing a lot of the negotiations myself-- but that probably had to do with the fact that I am a control freak AND we could not afford the time of letting the deal fall through and finding a new buyer. At the end of the day, we settled on our list price after concessions-- which at the end of the day was still awesome. Jill Sockwell, on Roberts team, was ESPECIALLY helpful as she was the person I worked with most frequently. She was knowledgeable, personable and fun. She would come over the house to explain things if needed and be present at inspections when we wanted representation. I would definitely recommend them...I was very lucky that I chose them-- I felt like they were the main reason it took 3 days to get a contract on our house and close within... 60 days of getting that first offer.

Showed home in 2011 in Newark Heights, Maplewood, NJ 07040.

Robert showed us a house that I wasn't expecting, but it was a perfect fit. We hope to stay for some time, but when the time comes, we'll be happy to work with him again.

Robert is extremely professional and his knowledge of the area is second to none. From the beginning he made us feel welcome in our new town and in the end helped facilitate a smooth closing.

Robert is definitely an expert. He gets the job done and he manages the whole process with utmost professionalism. Buying or selling is an emotional process and Robert keeps everything in motion and in balance. We have bought and sold properties with him and both experiences were consistent and straightforward.
