Stacy Esser – Realtor & Team Leader, The Stacy Esser Group | Keller Williams Town Life

Stacy Esser
Stacy Esser is a distinguished REALTOR® based in Tenay, New Jersey. Stacy has been providing her excellent marketing, merchandising, staging, negotiation, and consulting services to sellers and buyers of residential property in Bergen County for the last eight years.

With an annual sales volume expected to exceed $55 million, she is a top agent in sales among all agents in her area and is ranked among New Jersey Multiple Listing Service’s (NJMLS) Top 1% of agents.

She currently leads the Stacy Esser Group with Keller Williams Town Life where she serves clients in Tenay, Alpine, Closter, Cresskill, Demarest, Englewood, Englewood Clifs, Haworth, Norwood and Old Tappan.

As she tells it, Stacy decided to go into real estate so that she could use her sales and professional experience to change people’s lives:

With an understanding that  buying a home  could  very  well  be the  biggest investment  someone makes in their life and the largest asset someone may own, I felt that becoming an expert in this arena meant my skill set could ultimately help families accomplish their goals. Buying a home is more than just dollars and  cents, it’s about  lifestyle.  Selling a  home  requires more than  simply placing a sign on the lawn and placing in the MLS. It’s my responsibility to be professional and competent when my clients are entrusting me with such a huge task.

Before entering the real estate world, Stacy spent seventeen years in the fashion industry as Director and President of Sales, running sales teams across the country and selling to both small stores and large retailers all over the country. As such, she recognizes the  power of merchandising as it relates to buying and selling a home, which prompted her to become  a Certied Staging Professional and ultimately be  accepted to the  Luxury Institute  of Home  Marketing. In 2013, Stacy founded Time to Stage and Staged to Live, which all of her clients have the benet of using for free. With the philosophy that her clients might not have the power to change the size or location of their home, but that they do have the power to change how potential buyers feel about the space itself, she prioritizes educating clients on the power of staging their homes elegantly, no matter what kind of space they are working with.

Today, Stacy prides herself in being a top agent in one of the most competitive markets in the United States. With its views of the New York City Skyline, Bergen County oers residents all of the perks of city life and being a part of the New York metropolitan area, with the comfort of living in a suburban area.

Beyond her passion and knowledge, Stacy’s success is rooted in her steadfast commitment to her clients. Her philosophy of always placing her clients’ needs before her own, oering impartial advice, assisting customers to understand the market and the options in front of them, and engaging them long aer they have nished their transactions to ensure all their real estate needs are met has given Stacy clients for life, with 80% of her business being referral based. She noted:

I  believe  in  being trustworthy,  passionate,  and  driven.  Building  relationships that  last  is  more important  than  one  deal.  We  offer  the  very  best  and  most  comprehensive  marketing  plan accompanied by a five-star luxury client approach, no matter the price range.

Providing leading industry service, Stacy has strategically built a team of specialists designed to take care of and provide the best outcome for their clients. Each team member is charged with doing one job and doing it well, rather than doing many dierent jobs. is approach is both professional and fool-proof, using systems built to support the  buyer and seller, allowing Stacy and her team to oer unparalleled expertise in all aspects of a real estate transaction. As a leader in her eld, Stacy couples this unique management strategy with the use of cutting-edge technology. To stay ahead of the curve, she keeps herself abreast of prevailing technology trends in real estate. Discussing her use of technology in her business, she said:

Most  recently, I  started using virtual  staging for both vacant and non-vacant homes. Facebook continues to amaze us with its powerful reach, and as it launches new features, I like to figure out how  they  can  help  sell  my  homes  and  reach  more  potential  buyers.  Live  streaming  is  really picking up  steam for my team—we will live  stream from our open houses or  even when we are door knocking. I have also been using drones on my marketing platform for a few years now, as well as 3D tours with Oculus capabilities. By using these tools, we can engage and interact with a large audience in real time.

When Stacy is not working, she is active in giving back to her local community. She volunteers with organizations such as the Tenay Building Improvement District, and has insider access and knowledge of the community, further beneting her team. As a current board member of the Temple Sinai, she has spearheaded many community programs; most recently, she helped launch the ‘Love Yourself’ series, which raised awareness for women’s health and raised money for a local women’s charity called Womens’ Rights Organization. She also donates a percentage of each sale to KW Cares, and she and her team hold an annual pie giveaway and food drive benetting The Center for Food Action.

With nearly a decade dedicated to real estate, Stacy envisions a bright future ahead. Her plans include building a team of highly successful team members and bringing her sales volume from 55 million to 100 million. Her team’s level of success is a testament to their professionalism and drive, and Stacy is immensely proud of that.
