Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in South Orange, NJ.
Robert is a rock star! We received an offer within 24 hours of showing the house. He is an expert in selling homes in our community. He offered the right amount of guidance and all the resources we needed to ready our home for sale.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Maplewood, NJ.
My husband and I worked with Robert about 2 years ago to purchase a home in Maplewood. Robert has a great understanding of the town and was very knowledgeable about all of the houses we looked at with him. Once we decided on a house Robert helped to make the buying process Very easy! I have referred friends to Robert that have been very happy as well.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.075M in Short Hills, NJ.
We sold our house in Short Hills back in Summer of 2014, and Robert was our agent. Since we had to be away from the house most weekdays and all weekends (the reason we were selling in the first place), I needed someone to rely on to do pretty much everything for us. Robert stepped up to prep the house for sale, including any repairs that needed to be done, and managed the whole project without little to no help from us. His pricing strategy was great, and his negotiation skills were superb. After multiple offers, the house went to the highest bidder, who happened to be also the most qualified and deserving family.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Robert to anyone who is looking to sell their house in the area.
I have worked with Robert several times over the years, in several capacities. it's pretty simple ... If you want your house sold at the best price, if you want a realtor that is knowledgeable on all fronts, if you expect and demand to be treated with respect...and of course, do you want the best negotiator?.. Simple..have Robert list your house. His experience will be evident to you at the first sit down. Feel confident that Robert will listen to your needs, so while shopping for a house, he won't waste your time with homes you can't afford, or are not what you are looking for. I would highly recommend Robert whether you are searching for the perfect home or selling your present one.

Thank you so much for such a great review and thank you for all the referrals over the years. My family and I appreciate it
Bought a home in 2014 in Newark Heights, Maplewood, NJ 07040.
We worked with Robert for over 3 years! We weren't on a time crunch to move and had are hearts set on a very particular location and size of house in a difficult market. Robert never once asked us to compromise, but instead only brought to our attention homes that fit the bill. Finally, after much searching, he got us in to see the perfect place right went it went on the market. Now we're finishing a minor renovation and excited to move in. He even showed us another place we saw while we were in the process of closing, which helped prevent us second guessing. He and his staff were very accommodating to our schedules and were a huge help in getting access to the property for inspectors and our remodeling contractors. Along with that great customer service, he and his team know the area and available properties better than anyone. I highly recommend.

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.

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!

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!!

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.
