A Better Way to Buy and Sell Real Estate!

I Am Your Neighborhood Expert. Welcome HOME!

I'm Esther Cruz, but most people know me as "Essie". I have lived in Manalapan, NJ since July 1992, originally from Brooklyn NY. My husband and I have raised two children, in Manalapan, and have enjoyed the wonderful lifestyle this town has to offer. For the last 27 years, I have had the opportunity to watch Manalapan and the surrounding neighborhoods grow from small towns into one of the most desirable areas in which to live.

For the past 21+ years, I have been a part of the Marlboro/Manalapan office of Weichert Realtors. My clients are my top priority and I put their individual needs above all else. I will be with you through every step of your real estate transaction. You can trust my experience and my knowledge. Each transaction is handled personally by me. This will ensure a smooth and successful real estate transaction, and the excellent service you deserve. A satisfied client is my primary goal!

I am proud to say that my extra effort to accommodate my client's needs has earned me the excellent reputation I enjoy today! I thank you for visiting my online real estate source. Please bookmark this site for future reference! Contact AGENT Essie Cruz today at 908-596-1801.
