Finding a place to call home is equal parts exciting and stressful, but with the help of a locally-owned real estate business, The Lane Team, house hunting can be enjoyable and stress-free. Established in Montclair in 1999, members of the Lane Team have lived in the area for decades, giving the team first-hand knowledge of the area. Keep reading to learn more about The Lane Team and how the family-owned business operates to help people find their dream home.
A Customized Real Estate Experience
On a day-to-day basis, the Team Leader Chris Lane and Brittany Forsyth, the Director of Operations and Marketing, ensure everything runs smoothly — while the sales agents work with buyers and sellers to find their dream home. The individuals of The Lane Team have lived in Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Cedar Grove, West Orange, Little Falls, Jersey City, and Hoboken — making them invaluable assets when it comes to selling and buying real estate in Essex and Hudson Counties.
“We offer full real estate services including listing and sales consultations for sellers and buyers, rental services, property management, and a referral network of agents across the globe,” Chris Lane told The Montclair Girl. “The best part of running our own business is the ability to directly connect to members of our communities and help them achieve their goal of homeownership.”
The Lane Team office is located at 113 Grove Street in Montclair. You can call 973-509-3500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
With the goal of helping the largest number of people sell and buy homes across the state of New Jersey, The Lane Team focuses on providing each client with customized real estate expertise.
“We have learned that every sale or rental is different and we have been able to customize our clients’ experience to best meet their needs,” Chris mentioned. “When you work with The Lane Team, we will always provide a world-class professional experience for each client with the hope that they become raving fans of our work.”
Clients Have Access to the Exclusive Concierge Program
As The Lane Team approaches $1 billion in sales, it has collectively helped more than 1,500 families move into their dream homes.
“In a competitive environment, we have risen to the top again and again,” Chris told The Montclair Girl. “Now that we have joined Compass Real Estate, we are able to help even more buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals.”
The Concierge Program sets The Lane Team apart from other real estate companies, as it literally provides money (up to $75K), with 0% interest for selling clients to use for home improvements, landscaping, and staging to get the house market-ready for sale. Anyone who feels they are being held back from listing their home due to improvement costs is welcome to talk with The Lane Team for more details.
As a result of teaming up with Compass Real Estate, The Lane Team also has access to extensive technology tools that provide AI to target the most likely pool of buyers for a listed home. This technology, combined with intentional social media usage, speeds up the process of selling a home.
The Vibrant Community of Montclair
A few reasons The Lane Team loves Montclair include the Saturday Farmer’s Market, shops, galleries, and boutiques throughout town. For potential homebuyers with young children, Chris highlighted the school system in Montclair, which features a magnet program that has been viewed as a model program across the country.
“We love the cosmopolitan feel of Montclair with its world-class restaurants, parks, and easy transportation to NYC by train or bus,” Chris said. “Montclair is a welcoming community with a diverse population whose interests encompass the arts, including music and theater — all in close proximity to a vibrant downtown.”
As a company, The Lane Team also works within the community to support local nonprofits to support and aid those in need.
