Why choose James Lockard as your Allendale, NJ Realtor?
A long time resident of Allendale in Bergen County I have an in depth Knowledge of Northern Bergen County Residential & Investment Properties, Single & Multi-Family Homes.
Prior to my years as a Realtor I was a project manager in the information technology field and also owned two restaurants(one in Allendale) with my wife. I understand planning and customer relations. I have carried my life experieinces over to the real estate field and approach helping both buyers and sellers in a systematic and profitable manner. I provide my expertise to my clients in order for them to become more knowledgable which ultimately leads to smarter decisions and financial gains. My clients and I become partners with the objective to buy a house or sell a house and in many cases both. Each of us has obligations to each other in the partnership in order to achievel the goal, a successful transaction!
I have found many of my clients become my fiends during the process and we remain friends afterward. This is probably the most satisfing part of my job and the ultimate reward for what I do. I have attended many of my new friends house warming parties and then have gotten to know more people in turn.
From the business side, being part of RE/MAX has allowed me to control how I operate my business. I have the latitude to treat each client differently and cater to each of their special needs without having to clear it with a manager first. Every client has different needs and I find what they are upfront and tailor my services for them. You are special, and I treat you so.
