About Olga C. Ferreira
I am currently the Broker-Owner of Ferreira Realty located at 2000 Morris Avenue, Union Center, Union, New Jersey. I have been licensed since 1995 where I began my career with Weichert, Realtors. My first year with Weichert, I became Rookie of the Year for the region and soon began selling an excess of 100 homes per year, independently without the assistance of a team. I realized that I had found a profession that fit me perfectly. I love working with people and I am very driven and motivated. It is very fulfilling to me being trusted with the opportunity to serve my clients in the biggest financial decision of their lives. I grew up in Newark, NJ, a proud graduate of East Side High School, and like many people from humble beginnings, I had to work very hard all my life in order to achieve certain goals. Prior to becoming a Realtor, at the age of 19 years old, I built my first home in the Poconos. I then went on to purchase my second home when I married my high school sweetheart. I began a career in rehabbing homes, staging them and selling them for great profit. No doubt it was hard work but I truly enjoyed it. I realized that the nature of real estate for me wasn't just about having a roof over my head, it was also about using my experience to help people achieve their dreams of owning a home. Real estate enabled me the opportunity to make a great living for myself and my family. Prior to getting involved in real estate, I was a legal secretary/paralegal in NYC. I am also a licensed Title Insurance Producer. My past experience along with my current experience has helped me tremendously in providing guidance to my clients.
I married John at age 21 and we have three amazing children. My son Justin became a volunteer EMT at the age of 16 and at the age of 19 became the youngest Captain of the Squad to serve our community. He is currently employed as a full time Paramedic. At the age of 24, he purchased his first home. He is very kind and a hard worker. My daughter Samantha finished four year college in three years. She is currently a teacher and has also volunteered at our church since the age of 16. She is calm, sweet and is very excited about her new job. My youngest son Joshua is a freshman in high school and is my mini me. He says he wants to sell/rehab real estate with me, he just might as he has watched me over the years and asks a lot of questions about the business. A great family and a great career, life is pretty good !!
We also have an extended pet family. Three dogs and five cats.... plus a stray that I feed and am still trying to catch, three were rescued from a kill shelter and were very sick and well, they ended up staying. Rescuing animals is certainly one of my passions.
I have also gotten a group of ladies together to crochet with and we donate to hospitals and senior citizen locations. This past Christmas, we donated over 50 hats and other items to Mountainside Children's Hospital. I am always looking for volunteers.
My motto is "do unto others as you would like them to do to you". I am a great listener and when hired by my clients, I provide them with the best service and experience imaginable. I don't always tell you what you want to hear, if I think you are making a mistake, such as buying a home that is out of your budget, I will ask to sit with you for a chat. I take my job very seriously and want everyone to buy their dream home and not be financially strained. I recently sold two homes that I valued at $50,000 and $80,000 more than other Realtors' valuations and sold them both for the extra value, one even had multiple offers. Anyone can put a sign on the lawn, anyone can list a property, but not everyone can sell a property for its true market value. I have excellent references from past clients. Sell a home today, do the right thing and you will have a friend for a lifetime !!
Whether you are looking to sell your home (we will provide you with a complimentary true market value), purchase a new home or wish to invest in some great deals currently on the market (it's a great time for flipping/rehabbing)... please do not hesitate to call me. I am here to help and guide you every step of the way !!
