In a Home News Tribune Reader’s choice contest, Gloria Zastko, Realtors was again voted Best Realtor for 2012. Gloria Zastko, and Andrew Zastko, co-owners of the firm, are delighted with this award which the firm has repeatedly received. Zastko states, “Every day, every hour, we strive to be the best”. "Becoming No. 1 is an awesome feat . . . Remaining No. 1 is an every-day challenge." "Seeing longtime competitors and now the new kids on the block copying our innovative sales programs, must mean we are doing something right," Zastko added. “Independent, Trusted, Powerful” are the keywords to our firm’s success, cites Zastko.
Gloria Zastko, Realtors celebrated its 21st anniversary in March as it vowed to remain the "No. 1 Hometown Realtor". Zastko, who has been listing and selling real estate for over 40 years, feels the success of a salesperson is directly related to his or her knowledge of the product being sold. She said a Realtor should "Know your buyer," "Know your seller," and most of all, "Know your market."
During the past 21 years since Zastko formed the company with her son, Andrew Zastko and a select group of charter members, many of who still remain with the firm. Gloria Zastko Realtors strives to set a standard for excellence in service and reliability.
Zastko says that “Our business is built on referrals. We love to serve our clients over and over again. Our clients are so pleased with our service they refer their neighbors, sons, daughters and other relatives to us so that they may experience the same success.”
This year again, the Home News Tribune Reader’s Choice Contest added a category for the Best Real Estate Agents in Central Jersey and Andrew Zastko was voted Best Real Estate Agent for 2012, as he was in 2011. A newcomer to the Best of the Best is Zastko's own, Joyce Ann Staples, who was voted One of the Best Real Estate Agents in Central Jersey.
Staples, a Realtor-Associate, has been with the firm for more than 20 years and each year achieves top salesmanship. She is a member of the NJAR Distinguished Sales Club. Along with her full-time and successful real estate career, Staples finds time for another passion. She is the author of "Cooking with a Jersey Girl", a compilation of authentic, old fashioned Italian recipes, which is being sold in all major bookstores, as well as on line. Staples can be reached by calling 732-297-0600, Ext. 30 or email: email@example.com.
The firm handles short sales and represents many banks and financial institutions. Presently the firm is handling five new major housing developments; The Estates at Dunham’s Farm and The Pointe at Turnbury, both in South Brunswick; Mae Brook Estates at Farrington Lake and Hartland Square, both in North Brunswick; and Farrington Woods in East Brunswick.
Gloria Zastko, Realtors prides itself in being a “Family-owned business with National Connections” by relocating clients from coast to coast or anywhere else in the United States through the efforts of award-winning relocation director Ginger Boyle and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. “We believe in providing the best and most extensive service to our clients,” Gloria Zastko said, “and Ginger and our team provide just that. Being successful at what we do is great, but being selected time and again is a testament to our ability.”
Zastko feels that 2013 should be a status quo real estate year if interest rates remain low, prices remain stable, and buyer-demand continues.
Among its many contributions to the communities it serves, the Zastko firm sponsors its annual horse and buggy rides at North Brunswick’s Heritage Day; scholarships to North Brunswick students and many other charities related to North Brunswick and other surrounding communities. Soon the firm will be assembling their annual Thanksgiving baskets with turkey and every imaginable fixing for a gala Thanksgiving dinner. These baskets are given to North Brunswick Township for distribution to those in need.
