Where Is The Marchany Home Selling Team?
The Marchany Home Selling Team is everywhere you want to be in central New Jersey! Lorraine and Gil's primary focus is in South Brunswick (Middlesex County). They also serve Monroe in Middlesex County. If you're in Mercer County, The Marchany Team will help you find your perfect home in Princeton Junction, East Windsor, West Windsor, and Robbinsville. If you need to sell a home in Franklin Park or Hillsborough (Somerset County), Lorraine and Gil are ready and willing to find the buyers looking for your home!
In the twentieth century, South Brunswick saw extensive transformation as a result of American industrial technology. The New Jersey Turnpike opened in 1951 on the eastern edge of the Township. One notable effect of the Turnpike was the transformation of the agricultural area on the southeast corner of South Brunswick to that of a burgeoning industrial development.
With increased mobility and a growing population, suburban residential development began after the Second World War. Since the early 1900's, the town has matured from a tranquil and rustic farming community to a vibrant, diverse and active suburban town. While South Brunswick has been growing rapidly, much of the town's 42 square miles remain undeveloped, and there are still significant amounts of wetlands, woodlands and open space within the community. There are presently over 2,000 acres of municipal, county and state park land within South Brunswick, and the town is committed to pursuing the purchase of additional open space lands to maintain the quality of life within the community.
Today, Middlesex County is a thriving part of New Jersey. It's close to New York, and an easy trip to Philadelphia, yet retains small-town warmth and personality. The area had a 2009 population of nearly 800,000; South Brunswick's population was close to 40,000. The estimated median household income in 2009 was $75,531, and the estimated median house or condominium value at that time was $348,100. Median monthly housing costs for homes and condos with a mortgage are $2,348. The primary employers in the area are Rutgers University, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Merrill Lynch and Company.

What The Marchany Home Selling Team's Clients Are Saying
"Gil encouraged us to discuss [each] property, gave us some supporting research and kept us focused on our goal. From the beginning of our working together, we never felt rushed, and Lorraine and Gil demonstrated care and concern for our needs and specific home search criteria. They were knowledgeable about the marketplace, current conditions and property value, and always willing to discuss.
"They made it very clear that it was not their job to sell us a house, but to help us find the right home...at the right price for our family no matter how long it may take.Their honesty and integrity in that respect was displayed throughout our home search. They were diligent and patience.
"The home buying process, even for those like us who have purchased previously, can seem at times a stressful experience with many unknowns. However, we found those times easier to bear as a result of Lorraine and Gil's positive outlook, negotiation and problem solving skills, and accessibility. They were persistent in helping us achieve our goal of finding the right home and provided high level of commitment and service. We would certainly feel comfortable in recommending them to our family, friends and neighbors who maybe thinking about buying or selling a property.” Rajiv Mallick
"Lorraine did an excellent job matching me to my first home. She was always accessible and went out of her way to make sure my first home purchase went well. I'll always remember her positive attitude, staunch determination and great personality during our house hunting time together." John Magliula
“Brian and I just wanted to thank you for all of your help throughout this process. It has been great working with you and we will be sure to refer to any friends we have selling/buying houses in the area.” Joanie Layden
“I'm writing to thank you...for all your help in selling my home. I appreciate you and Gil coming over to show my home when I wasn't available. I also appreciate all the open house days at my home and the innovative marketing plan you implemented to sell my home. Obviously it worked. I will recommend the professional Marchany Team to all my friends.” John Casullo
“The Marchany Team has an excellent knowledge of the market, new regulations relating to HUD and made a very precise assessment of the price at which we would be able to sell our home. In these tough times when the housing market is in the dumps and homes remain on the market for an average period of 2 to 4 months they were able to help us sell our home in 3 weeks. They understood exactly what our requirements for our new home were and were very proactive in the entire process. They had an excellent follow up too. We will definitely recommend them to any person we know who are in the process of buying and selling their homes.” Arshad and Sameena Kallagawa
"Thank you very much for the hard work you both have done in selling our home. We greatly appreciated your determination and patience, and most importantly, the fact that you managed to sell our property within the given time frame. Because of that, we were able to close on the sale of our "old" house and the buy of our new home on the same day. And all this during a time of an economic crisis in which the real estate market was in a down turn. We doubt that we would have gotten those kind of results from any other agent.
When we talked to both of you, we knew that we had found the right partners. Your marketing plan made sense, you presented the best package of real estate selling tools, and you immediately had a calm and realistic approach which put us at ease during this difficult time of recession and financial instability.
Within a few days after you started to market our house we had our first offer already and after three months you found us a buyer. Lorraine, [you] were the calm voice in times when unreasonable buyers dropped their bids after we had started the attorney review and left us with major uncertainty. Gil always provided us with all the financial information and backed up Lorraine perfectly when needed.
You both kept an active communication approach during the whole marketing process and we always had the feeling that you both are on top of things, even during difficult times. We felt that we could always trust your judgment and the final result speaks for itself. We will definitely be back should we ever need to buy or sell a home again, and we will certainly recommend your services to our friends and business partners if needed." Rainer & Lisa Schwam
