Welcome to the beautiful and historic counties of Morris and Somerset. I’m Adrienne Francis and I’ve lived and worked in this area for many years. I know it well, and understand each community’s uniqueness and its special features. You will find that these communities offer charm, character, wonderful schools and a very enviable lifestyle.
My commitment to my clients is to provide an exceptional real estate experience that includes very personal service, focusing on the needs of my customers by providing you with comprehensive information and in-depth knowledge gained from serving buyers and sellers locally. My unsurpassed signature service honors your time and your confidentiality, ensuring your complete satisfaction and accomplishing your real estate goals. I understand the relationship between emotions and the homebuying experience, and can transform this into an exceptional experience for you. I offer a relationship that guides you through every step of the buying and selling process because buying a luxury home often means buying a "lifestyle", not just a property. Lifestyle's are different for everyone and being able to interpret that can save my clients time and money.
Whether you are buying or selling a home, every home needs to be marketed to the right clientele and that requires a huge internet presence for starters. Today's affluent are citizens of the world and a successful agent must know how to reach them.
I am committed to my clients the entire way: from the sale or selection of your perfect property, through inspections, contract and closing. At every opportunity, I deliver attention-to-detail and impeccable customer service. Please call me today and let me know how I can help you.

"Relocating from one state to another is not on my list of favorite things, however after our experience with Adrienne Francis I would gladly do it again as long as she was the real estate agent representing us as a seller and a buyer. We recently relocated to the Basking Ridge area with her help and were so pleased with her professionalism, knowledge, recommendations and work ethic. It is rare to find a business these days that has such a dedicated employee who is nothing but helpful, always there with the right questions and the answers when needed. I felt as if Adrienne never left our side, representing our interest whether we were present or still back in our home state preparing for the move. We were always informed of every detail during our negotiations, Lawyer Review and closing, every step of the way. Her follow through was amazing and we never felt neglected. I can definitely say that Adrienne took a tough task and made it very user friendly."Ann and John Thomas, Basking Ridge
We had listed our home with two previous realtors with zero success. The house sat on the market for over a year with the last one with no bids and no guidance from the agent. Feeling very defeated, we decided to try one more time and list with Adrienne and we could tell right away that she was going to get it sold. Her expert knowledge of the market and the area allowed us to price the home accurately and her superior staging techniques got people to notice. She was able to pinpoint exactly what buyers were looking for. Adrienne is appropriately aggressive and extremely determined to get the job done the right way. We were also very pleased with her constant communication with us and keeping us updated throughout the process. We are so grateful that we found her when we did. We were able to move on to a larger home to accommodate our growing family. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Adrienne to anyone!! Ellen and Dave Johnson, Bedminster, NJ
Adrienne is a very professional Realtor with great knowledge of the area and market demands. Persistence and confidence were the two characteristics that made her stand out from the other agents as I went through my interview and selection process. However, it was here knowledge and professionalism that ultimately got my house sold in this tough market. A year ago, I listed my house with another Realty and agent but we were not successful in selling the house - the listing sat for six months with no offers. With Adrienne's guidance and support, we were able to sell the house within 30 days from re-listing. Adrienne had solid advice on what attracts the buyers and a realistic approach to handling the selling process. I highly recommend Adrienne!

I wanted to tell you how grateful I am to you for your prompt, efficient, professional and warm guidance during the sale of my existing home and the purchase of the new one. As a business owner, the only way I could realize my dream of a larger home, was to move quickly. I did not want to be unduly distracted and jeopardize my client relationships. You moved the process at the pace I needed from day one. You were attentive, creative, energetic and an advocate for me. You showed me how to stage my home. It was by far the most attractive of all 4 for sale in my complex at the time. It was on the market in 2 weeks from our first meeting and within 3 weeks I had two potential buyers bidding and a third who wanted to join in. My sale was the first Allen unit sold in 9 months.
This move is a great financial and personal move for me. My final and accepted offer was 8% higher than the first offer I received. Thanks to your direction and work to make it all happen, I did wind up with substantially more money from the sale than I would have without your help. I work with a number of professionals in my business and your level of service far exceeded all of them! I can't thank you enough.

Based on a recommendation from a friend in the real estate business, I asked Adrienne Francis to be the agent for a house I inherited and was selling in Bernardsville, NJ. Adrienne turned out to be the perfect agent for me. I was impressed with her knowledge of the housing market; her leadership through the complicated process, her guidance with each step along the way; her recommendations for professional inspectors, contractors, and lawyers; and finally, her tough contract negotiation skills. I quickly realized that I could trust Adrienne, that I was in good hands, that we worked well together, and we became friends. Thanks to Adrienne, the house quickly found the perfect buyer. It was a win win outcome for all parties concerned. Richard Felton, Bernardsville
Moving a large family is not an easy task. But from day one you knew exactly what we needed to do and helped us stage our home, remove clutter, you gave me a plan in which to follow so that I could remain organized and focused as you guided us through every step of the process. Your innovative marketing got our home sold fast (eliminating me having to keep it clean all the time) which was a great help to me. That was just to sell our current home. You also showed us through different properties and supplied us with information until we felt we knew where we wanted to live and you showed us home after home until we found the right one. Then you helped us through inspection issues, which in Bernardsville involved septic and well inspections through to closing. We could not have accomplished this without your guidance, you expertise, your professionalism and your negotiation skills, all which helped us buy the home we wanted. Having worked with other realtors in the past, you clearly are exceptional and we appreciated all your hard work. Thank you. Wendy and Greg Supron, Bernardsville, NJ
On the occasion of our one year anniversary of moving into our new home, I just wanted to put on record our deepest gratitude for the wonderful efforts that you put into the sale of our previous townhouse, the purchase of our present home and the never-ceasing helpfulness in the follow-up that you have provided to us in the entire process. You were always available for questions, provided answers in all cases and gave us the most excellent advice at all stages of the sale and purchase. Your knowledge of the housing market and it's smallest details kept us fully aware of what we needed to know to make this a successful series of transactions. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and we have already recommended you to friends who are contemplating moving. As a person who has moved a large number of times in different parts of the world, I can state without hesitation that working with you has been the best experience I have ever had with a realtor. Keep up the good work............ Martin Kendall and Jean Laird, Basking Ridge
What a nice letter and a great touch. That's why you're so successful. Working on this deal with you has been a pleasure, not only are you knowledgeable but from one realtor to another, and I've dealt with many, your follow through is second to none. Very professional and very real. Thank you so much for your assistance in every respect and I look forward to that gin and tonic. Mine will be a martini. Remember to bring your bathing suit! Cheryl Sonners, Realtor
I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how incredibly happy we were with Adrienne’s services. From the first time Adrienne and I spoke, she was incredibly helpful and informative regarding all the facets of life in Somerset County. Her expertise and knowledge of this market helped my family and I to find the perfecthouse in a community where we felt “at home” since the first day. She worked tirelessly on our behalf. Whenever I had a question or request, I had a response in an unprecedented timely manner. There were no bounds forwhat Adrienne would do to help us with our relocation. Even after our close last week, she was still helping us with services that we needed in our new home. She is truly a rare commodity in the customer service industry today. I would like to know that I speak from experience when it comes to moving and relocating. In the last 10 years, this home is our seventh place of residence. Within that time, this most recent move is our fourth relocation to a new state with my husband’s firm. Adrienne is the first agent in all these years that I would be proud to recommend to any of my friends or my husbands colleagues to relocate.
In closing, I would like to add that Adrienne alsofound me a training and boarding facility for myhorse. This may not seem like a major issue to you, however in my mind, finding the right barn to keep my horse at was second only to finding the best school for my children. Adrienne knew this because she truly listened to ourneeds.......Debra Sweeney, Bedminster
Dear Adrienne, We wanted to thank you so much for all your help over the last months. Home selling was more involved and stressful than I anticipated, and it was nice to be able to work with someone that we trusted. We appreciated that you were always available to talk things through, responsive to our needs and able to give us great advice throughout the whole process. We always felt that you were working in our best interest as opposed to just "trying to get the deal done". and I don't think we would have felt that way with many of the agents out there. You also have good negotiation skills which became evident in some of the latter stages of the process, and we appreciated that you never divulged more than was necessary. Also you have a great sense of style when it comes to interior decorating, staging and arranging the outside of our home. This helped us a lot as we tried to prepare our home to sell and I know it got our home sold much faster. Overall, we were pleased we chose to work with you and we will happily recommend you to others........Anna & Ed Forzani, Basking Ridge
We are finally settled into our new home. I wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for the incredible work you did for us during the sale/buy process. Your follow-up, attention to detail, knowledge of the market and handling of even the smallest issue for us made the whole experience a pleasure. Your professionalism was first rate. Your guidance was essential and allowed us to realize our goals. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us. Having worked with many realtors before you, I can tell you first hand that you have moved to the top of my recommendation list at the firm..... Steven M Resnick, Esq. Basking Ridge
Adrienne was our single greatest asset during the home buying process. It was the peak of the market, and high demand and bidding wars made everything so stressful—we were ready to give up looking. She took the time to really listen to us and understand our needs, and kept a mindful eye on the market. We didn't have to scour the listings because she did it for us. She would tell us about a home as soon as it hit the market, and made herself available to see it when it was convenient for us. She never discouraged us from making an "unrealistic" offer and in addition, never wasted our time seeing homes that didn't meet our expectations. Adrienne is a sophisticated partner and a keen negotiator to have by your side, and knows "tricks of the trade" that prior agents never seemed to suggest. In our case, it won us the house of our dreams. She will never pressure you into buying something that isn't what you want just to "get the sale", she wants you to be happy and will forge a lifelong relationship with you. I trust her completely, and believe her skills as a real estate agent are simply unmatched in this area. She gets my top recommendation and I thank her immensely for her knowledge, her patience and her diligent work in helping us close the deal on our new home." Erika and Gene Desimone, Bernardsville
Over a year ago we met one of your agents, Adrienne Francis. After being exposed to other agents in the Somerset and Morris County territory, we realized immediately that we found a true professional. Our experience with the vast majority of agents left us with a somewhat cynical view of your industry. Typically, agents send you a barrage of badly chosen listings and fatigue quickly if the buyer does not choose a home. Our initial meetings at the broker offices were meant to inform us of what was available and to express our wishes to Adrienne. We scheduled home viewings from there and she gained even more insight after we gave feedback on the homes we had viewed. She had a keen sense of what our desires and needs were although we didn’t always articulate them. Each subsequent home viewing was closer to our intended wishes and requirements for a home. We live very far (nearly 40 miles) from Somerset County and therefore Adrienne made it a point not to waste any of our time. She was always punctual, scheduled viewings in a timely manner and professionally dressed. Never a hair out of place! Of course her knowledge and experience are her greatest assets. Adrienne worked diligently to forward as much information as possible on relevant properties. As a sales representative myself, (in a different industry) we probe and then sometimes cajole prospects to buy our product or service. The challenge is to create a representation to convince the buyer the product will meet their wants and needs. She never relented despite our sometimes unreasonable requirements.
I commend her incredible energy, professionalism and incredible knowledge of the real estate market in her chosen territories. Irene Michalos, New York
Peter and I want to thank you for helping us find our way out of New York City and finally into a real home in the suburbs. When I think of all the weekends you showed us around, looking at so many areas, I'm tired again just thinking about it. You were so patient and so understanding of our needs and wants. We so appreciate all your hard work. Your guidance and expertise of the area was amazing and your relentless negotiations on our behalf were so professional. As soon as we are settled in, you are coming for dinner! Look forward to seeing you again....... Peter and Debbie Johnson, Morris Township
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your help and guidance in finding our new home. While it isn’t our first home, but our first house, your advice truly made the experience much smoother for us. Your expertise and quick perception of our tastes were such an asset in identifying only houses that were worth viewing. You knew immediately whether or not a house was something we were going to like. With our limited time coming from New York City and of course our “baggage”, this was crucial in the process. Thank you again for all your help. We look forward to entertaining you on deck in the near future. Corrie and John Thomas, Chatham, NJ
Adrienne Francis has been a great individual to work with and I fully endorse and recommend her if you are seeking a professional, dedicated, seasoned, efficient and caring realtor in the Somerset Hills, Bernardsville, Basking Ridge, Morristown and Somerset and Morris County areas.
I have had the pleasure of working with Adrienne on a number of real estate transactions. She found us a new home and sold our old home. Additionally, she represented me on the acquisition of a commercial property for business purchases. Adrienne is most efficient, thorough and dedicated.
I have found that realtor offices are revolving doors with many taking a quick course, getting a license and trying to sell homes. If there is one thing that you should take away from this review is that you must insist upon dealing with someone with experience, who understands the market, negotiations, the area and you the buyer! Do not just accept who the next "salesman" in line at a real estate office is...look for someone with the qualities I've described. You want an experienced, mature realtor. There is a big difference. In my mind, you will never go wrong with Adrienne, who I completely endorse her Mark Corigliano, Gladstone, NJ.
