As a New Jerseyean for over 15 years, I bring a wealth of knowledge about Northern New Jersey, including Summit, Short Hills, Millburn and neighboring towns. I am an active member of my community and neighborhood in Summit, where I live with my husband and two daughters - both attending Summit’s excellent elementary schools. 
My clients and friends describe me as having deep empathy for my clients’ needs, a strong ability to negotiate, and a steely determination to deliver outstanding results for my clients. 
I get how hard a move can be. Over the last three decades, I have moved between a dozen homes in multiple cities (across four countries and three continents!) I know that finding the right partner who is always available on a moment’s notice to help, guide, and fight for you can make ALL the difference. That’s what I’m here for.
When you’re a client, my goal is to do whatever it takes to make your move a delightful one, whether you’re buying into a new home or selling and moving out. I try and go above and beyond in getting you expert guidance every step of the way, while also helping you become familiar and comfortable with the neighborhood you’re considering. Whether it’s showing you the popular playgrounds, restaurants, parking, dog parks and local businesses or looping you into the cultural and social aspects and amenities unique to each neighborhood. 
I’ve had a long, successful sales career in hospitality around the world. I’ve worked for globally renowned hotel brands like The Intercontinental Hotels Group, Millennium Hotels and the Orient Express Hotels (now Belmond Luxury Hotels). And I’ve had the privilege of traveling to over 28 countries across Europe and Asia, collecting remarkable experiences along the way - such as trekking in the Himalayas; attending university in Salamanca, Spain; running with the bulls in Pamplona; skydiving in New York; and enjoying a front row to cricket test matches at Lords in London.
Throughout my career, I’ve strived to provide my clients uncompromising service with integrity and enthusiasm. Few things are more gratifying to me than to see clients absolutely delighted to have worked with me.  

"Pooja was a godsend for us given how tough and competitive the housing market has been in 2021. Right from our first interaction to well after the home closing, Pooja held our hand throughout the process. She was so transparent, knowledgeable and always went that extra mile on our behalf. She has been the best Realtor I have worked with and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor. If there ever was a white glove service for realty, Pooja would be the queen of that space!"

"Buying and finding a house at this time of COVID 19 was not an easy task. Pooja was very professional as well as personal. Our stresses were high as all our criteria needed to be met. Pooja is not only a fantastic realtor, she is an excellent support system. ANYTIME there was a house we wanted to se Pooja moved fast as houses were flying off the market. She negotiated and helped us obtain the house we wanted, working hard to make sure the whole process went smoothly. Pooja and her team are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home, you wouldn’t regret it. We are so thankful for the amazing friendship we build through this process!"

"We couldn’t have bought our first home without Pooja! She was exceptional and incredible. What we loved about her is that she is extremely honest and very receptive towards your likes and dislikes. She guided us step by step through the process and recommended other vendors as well. She is extremely easy to reach and super responsive to any number of questions. In this tough and competitive housing market, she was the reason we were able to both find and win the offer. She went above and beyond to get us to see the right neighborhoods, homes and the right streets. I highly highly recommend her. If you have her on your team, your home buying process will be a breeze!"

"We meet with Pooja in one of the open house in New Providence, and that's how the journey started. In this hot market she showed us more than 50+ home, the best quality in Pooja is , she never say NO for any property whether it is 2 miles from Summit or 40 miles from Summit, any whether condition, snow storm, rain or anything, i remember we saw one home and to reach to the door, we have to go in like 3 ft of snow. So in a nut shell, she is very professional, expert in her domain, nice negotiation skills, very much responsive (many times she responded 1230am midnight as well). A BIG thank you Pooja for helping us o get out sweet home :)"
