2012 a Banner Year at Gloria Zastko, Realtors

Gloria Zastko and Andrew Zastko, co-owners of Gloria Zastko, Realtors announce that once again the firm met its goals and surpassed its marketshare.  In 2012, its top producing agents sold and closed in excess of 350 closed transactions, more than a deal a day; once again establishing itself as a top-ranking agency in Central Jersey and, year after year, #1 in North Brunswick real estate.

A good part of what makes the Zastko firm so consistently successful is its ability to stay on top of the market.   The firm remains committed by emphasizing and advertising how today’s unprecedented interest rates and stabilized pricing create the greatest affordability in years, once again, making the “American Dream” of home ownership possible!

Zastko believes as the economy continues to improve and with continuing low interest rates, pent-up buyer demand will spur the 2013 real estate market, cautioning, however, that interest  rates could, of course, rise.

The family-owned business which began in 1991 when Gloria Zastko collaborated with her son, Andrew, and a select group of Realtors, will celebrate its 22nd anniversary on March 15th, which is also Zastko's 41st year in real estate.  "I feel my biggest accomplishment was when I opened at almost 60 years of age, and 1991 was a tough real estate year.  We were, however, an instant success and it worked out great.  We weathered the 1991 tough market, we worked harder and we worked smarter.  "Certainly, the vast experience we gained throughout the years is paramount to today's market", Zastko states.  "Actually, there is a great similarity in real estate in the 1991real estate market and this one", Zastko says.
