Roberta Destri - REALTOR®
Hi. My name is Roberta Destri but please call me “Robbie”. Like so many of my friends and neighbors, I moved to Essex County, NJ after years of living in NYC and Brooklyn. Looking to buy, we were outpriced, (who isn’t anymore?) and slowly looked west, fearful of moving to the bland ‘burbs. How to leave friends, great restaurants, culture, easy work commutes and city sophistication? Luckily, we discovered Northern, NJ and the towns of Maplewood, South/West Orange, Millburn, Montclair. Only 18 miles from NYC, we bought our own lovely home (with a lower mortgage payment than our previous rent) in a quaint historic town with great schools, a backyard for BBQs, space for extended family stays, hip bars and bistros, lush parks, art galleries and Performing Arts Centers. But most importantly, we found the perfect place to grow our family in a community of diversity, acceptance and deep connection, filled with other NYC exiles and transplants from all over the country.
Our family has been here for 9 years, and we’ve met amazing neighbors and friends. Our daughter has excelled in the local schools, my musician husband has found kindred spirits to jam with, and I have found my calling as a Weichert Realtor transitioning my skills as a professional marketer, to bring the joy of homeownership to buyers and sound guidance to home sellers who are upgrading to a larger home or downsizing, when the kids leave home. Knowing that your home is your most significant investment, I guarantee you will have my full attention and expertise. I will work my hardest to ensure the process is as seamless as possible, to from start to finish, based on my deep market knowlege, inside information about the towns, current home prices and inventory.
I hope to work with you soon!
