The Market Leader in Luxury Residential

The team at Brown Harris Stevens works diligently to keep its spot at the forefront of the industry by offering unmatched access, education, and insights to each buyer, seller, and renter. One thing that sets the staff at Brown Harris Stevens apart is the local knowledge, global reach, and shared market insights which allow for streamlined real estate service.

Since the real estate experience is about more than just the transaction, Brown Harris Stevens has built some of the most comprehensive property technology systems in the industry, and continues to raise the bar to work faster, better, and more efficiently for clients. 

“For over 15 years, we have called Montclair home — previously under the Halstead name and since our merger, under the Brown Harris Stevens name. We are committed to not only providing personalized service but over-delivering for our clients,” Eugene Cordano, President of Brown Harris Stevens NJ,  told Montclair Girl. “Even though our agents are known for their industry-leading sales, luxury at Brown Harris Stevens is not defined by the high-end properties we represent, but by the high-touch service we provide at every price point.”

BHS agents average more than 20 years in residential real estate — the highest in the industry. To further support their ongoing education, the company has created BHS X, an advanced training program offering weekly educational seminars on a variety of topics that enhance the agents’ business.
