In early 1994, Country Classics new home builders, Scott and Todd Van Cleef, partnered with a local licensed Broker and their Director of Sales and Marketing, Jacqueline Mello, to form their own in-house real estate division, Homeward Bound Realty, Inc.
The original intent and focus was primarily to promote new home sales at the first Country Classics community of single family homes located in Hillsborough, New Jersey. With robust activity and a fast sales pace, Homeward Bound grew fast, branching off into the resale segment with outstanding success. Their experienced staff quickly attracted referrals from both inside and out of the Country Classics communities and they were off and running. Their hard work and passion for real estate has helped them maintain success in both strong and mediocre markets.
From the early days of only three licensed individuals and the first community, through almost sixteen years of sales and marketing for fourteen developments and multiple resales, Homeward Bound boasts over $445,000,000 in sales. They now hold licenses for close to a dozen real estate sales and referral professionals, many with decades of experience. They handle a wide spectrum of services and diverse products ranging from the sale of that first newly constructed single family home to listings, sales, and rentals of condominiums, townhomes, age-restricted dwellings, and existing homes. Moreover, their territory has expanded from central New Jersey to eastern Pennsylvania with the recent opening of their Pennsylvania office.
Adhering to the strongest ethics and with optimum professionalism, this well trained team is equipped to handle the many aspects of effectively listing and selling homes and seeing them through to closing. Homeward Bound sales personnel enthusiastically approach listing every home with a well designed marketing plan, energy, care, and concern. They are outfitted for triumphant results in the residential market.
In terms of Country Classics built homes, no staff possesses more knowledge or expertise in both the homes and overall communities more than the Homeward Bound team. With access to virtually hundreds of buyers, no firm is better positioned or offers more intense exposure to spotlight resales in the neighborhood. On-site sales centers, some with seven-day coverage, draw interested buyers of all types including those who are interested in the community, but not necessarily looking to purchase new construction.
Homeward Bound Realty, Inc. confidently looks forward to ongoing accomplishments and similar achievements at their new location in Williams Township (Easton), PA to those they have experienced throughout their many years of business in New Jersey.
