Nest Seekers Goes Big: Peek Inside an $11.95M French Chateau, and more

Jersey Digs

Since opening their doors in March, Nest Seekers has made a giant splash in the New Jersey market. Not only are they breaking records in Hudson County, but the company is now pushing its way northward into some of New Jersey’s most premier neighborhoods.

Recently, Edward Moran invited Jersey Digs up to Cresskill to tour their newest listing – an $11.95 million, 18,000 square foot French Chateau. The home features 9 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, an elevator, indoor pool and hot tub, sauna and steam room, movie screening room, and a climate controlled wine cellar. Outside, it boasts a regulation-sized tennis court, private vineyard, and lush manicured gardens.

But that isn’t their only listing in the area. The company is also marketing a $4.99 million, 20-acre equestrian estate in Bedminster as well as a 2-acre development site in Demarest directly next door to The Stone Mansion.

Back in Hudson County, the company has a combined unit at 45 River Drive South listed for $2.249 million, are in contract at 923 Castle Point Terrace, and represents three units at The Watermark in North Bergen.

Nest Seekers is also gaining traction with developers. They’re the exclusive broker for over 120 units in an array of new condo and rental projects currently under development. One of which is 25 Division Street, a boutique condo project featuring 5 floor-through units in the Village neighborhood.

Nest Seekers success can be contributed to a few factors. For starters, they’re highly connected to the NYC market. Moran is the New Jersey representative for The Serhant Team, led by broker Ryan Serhant. Their client base includes celebrities, athletes, and executives.

The company also takes a different approach than most local New Jersey brokers. They bring with them a slate of technology that allows them to market their listings differently. One of their favorites, WalkthisHouse, is a 3-D visualization company that offers everything from high end architectural renderings to interactive 3D models. These details not only set them apart from the competition when pitching listing clients, but they also tap into the psyche of today’s high-end buyers. Clients want to learn as much as they can online before venturing out to see a property.

Up until now, a firewall of sorts has separated NYC from New Jersey. That is now shifting. Since Nest Seekers has broken down the barrier and proven the model, it won’t be long before more companies set their sites on New Jersey. Luckily for Nest Seekers, they’re already leaps and bounds ahead.
