Ms. Kim, who oversees the sales program at The M at Englewood South in Bergen County, N.J., received the award at the 2016 Sales and Marketing (SAM) Awards banquet held at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.  Hosted by the NJBA, the gala event serves as the grand finale of the Atlantic Builder’s Convention and celebrates the most successful sales and marketing professionals in the state.

Ms. Kim was recognized for completing more than 25 sales at the 125-condominium community since joining the company last summer.

“This is a tremendous and well-deserved honor for Ellie and we couldn’t be more proud of her,” says Jaqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, which serves as the exclusive marketing and sales agent for The M.  “In less than a year, she has firmly established herself as one of the top performing new home sales representative in northern New Jersey by remaining committed to her buyers and working closely with the local real estate community.  Her approach, knowledge and experience have translated to a significant increase in contracts signed at The M over the past 10 months. ”

Ms. Kim is leading one of the most successful sales programs in Bergen County with more than 60% of the condominium homes at The M at Englewood South now sold. Much of the appeal of The M stems from its competitive pricing and ability to provide a variety of incentive and financing programs that open the door to homeownership for many first-time buyers.

Topping the list of popular incentives is a brand new program just rolled out by the community’s sponsors — Flatrock 3, LLC – that adds real value to new home purchases.  Available for a limited time, buyers can now receive $10,000 off the price of a one-bedroom home at The M at Englewood South and $20,000 off the price of a two-bedroom condominium.

The M at Englewood South also offers an innovative 97% financing plan that creates a down payment as low as $9,000.   The programs are just two examples of how the community is bringing homeownership within reach to many young couples and single-professionals.

“The M is ideally suited to fit the lifestyle needs of active and vibrant professionals, couples and families and our special offers play a big role in providing them an avenue to enjoy all the advantages of condominium ownership here,” Ms. Kim points out.

The M at Englewood South has made its mark in the Bergen County housing game with well-planned condominium designs, an energetic environment and desirable location near work centers in Manhattan and the many cultural, entertainment and recreational opportunities of northeast New Jersey.

In fact, with its location just minutes from the shops, restaurants and bars in downtown Englewood and an atmosphere that resembles nearby urban centers like Hoboken and Jersey City, without the hustle-and-bustle and congestion of City living, The M at Englewood South is drawing many former renters who want more space, paralleled excitement, and, of course, ample parking.  A parking space in The M’s enclosed parking garage is included in the purchase price.

“We’re getting first-time homebuyers from all ends of the spectrum,” says Ms. Kim.  “Those coming from apartment homes in Hudson County and New York City are not only excited to own a home, but also purchase in a multi-family building that offers a similar environment to these popular urban setting without the hassle of parking, noise, and more.  We’re also seeing a number of buyers who had been living at home to save money to purchase and are thrilled to begin a new lifestyle right next to the delights of downtown Englewood and ten minutes from to Manhattan.”

While atmosphere, ambiance and leisure-time enjoyment are added bonuses, the homes themselves at The M at Englewood South are at the heart of its sales success.  Priced from the low-$300,000s, the luxury residences  range in size from 755 to 1,499 square feet and feature open living space, sumptuous bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchens with maple cabinetry, under-counter lighting and granite countertops, large laundry areas with side-by-side General Electric washers and dryers, and large walk-in closets.

The ideal lifestyle at The M is further enhanced by its own on-site recreational amenities.  Preparing for its highly-anticipated debut this Memorial Day, the sparkling outdoor pool is a social hub for residents to bask in the summer weather.  There’s also a resident’s clubroom with a catering kitchen for large parties and entertaining.  Fitness enthusiasts’ greatly appreciate the one year membership at The Gym, a 40,000 SF state-of-the-art fitness center located at 20 Nordhoff Place.
