My wife and I were looking for a nice Bayfront condo in Avalon or Stone Harbor as an investment for now and future Summer home. Given a tight budget and ridgid requirements, the Binder group not only found us a hidden gem but also provided names of workmen to help get the Bayfront in order. If that wasn't enough with less than 30 days to the start of the season the Binder group found us a suitable seasonal tenant. We couldn't be happier. Lucky ? No...unbelievable service, knowledge & expertise!

Bought a SFH in Avalon - June 2015 In one word, Jack Binder, Jr. is ELITE. If Avalon / Stone Harbor had a professional sports team, Jack & Jack Jr. would be their franchise-players. Personable, quick thinker, problem solver, intelligent, effort & action are adjectives that quickly come to mind when thinking of Jack Jr.'s skill-set. His attention to detail - when combined with his communication skills - cannot be overstated.

~ Steve and Ruth Ann S.

Nothing compares to Jack Binder Jr,'s energy, professionalism, knowledge of the Avalon/Stone Harbor real estate market and the importance he places on listening intently to his clients and meeting their needs. When buying a home in the area you may well feel like the slogan implies, that "you have arrived". But, others just want to "stay forever" and have had a deep connection and love for the island for generations. There is a rich history on the island and Jack understands the value of that. I cannot thank you enough for making the dream live on for my family. - Sharon Morrissey (Avalon family since 1964)

~ Sharon and Tom M.

Jack and his team helped me identify properties that fit my price range and needs. Once the property was under contract, they were extremely diligent with helping me through all the steps to get to closing. Jack, in particular, was very knowledgeable and responsive in the negotiation process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor that goes above and beyond for their client.

~ David D.

Jack Binder is on a whole level to himself - He is the most service-oriented broker, always willing to go the extra mile to make sure things are taken care of that aren't even something that other brokers would take responsibility for. He knows who to call on the island to get things done. He is very good at handling all the issues that come up in a transaction. He takes the time to understand what you are looking for. And his knowledge of the market is beyond what you will find anywhere else. He is tops, I can't even fit in this review all of the details that he looked after and all the ways that he helped to get our transaction done. Seriously the absolute best.

~ Robin F.

Jack sold our Avalon home and found us the perfect home in Stone Harbor in within a week while was on vacation in Florida! We could not have asked for a more committed and dedicated agent. Jack knows how to make it happen! He and his support staff made sure our 2 settlements went smooth as silk! Couldn't have asked for better service!

~ Donna P.

Jack Binder of the The Jack Binder Group is a consummate professional in all matters regarding the purchase and sale of real estate in the Avalon/Stone Harbor market. Jack and his entire team, including Judy and Tricia, were always available to offer guidance, advice, and support through the entire process from listing to closing. Jack works diligently to educate his buyers on the pros and cons of every property he shows and is extremely knowledgeable. Having now worked with Jack on the sale and purchase of two different homes, we consider him to be a trusted friend and advisor and would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone considering a purchase in the beautiful shore communities of Avalon and Stone Harbor.

~ Janet J.

When the time came to list our home for sale, we asked for recommendations from friends. Repeatedly, Jack Binder and his team were highly recommended. Every interaction with Jack and his staff served to reinforce our decision to select them. He and his staff were extremely attentive to every detail in marketing our home. We felt they valued our home as much as we did. Jack demonstrated superior knowledge of the island's real estate market. While being a good listener, he shared valuable suggestions. There is a reason why Jack and his team are the number one agents in their market. We highly recommend Jack Binder and his team.

~ Elaine and Joe W.

Jack Binder, Jr. recently helped my husband and I purchase a home in the Stone Harbor/Avalon community. Our experience with Jack was outstanding! His knowledge of the the real estate market in these areas was indispensable. Jack showed us all inventory available in our price range, thus ensuring we made an educated and informed decision. Nothing we asked of him was too great a task and he went out of his way to make himself personally available. (He never used an assistant to show us homes). Jack is one of, if not, the most professional and hardworking realtors we've come across. Jack is also well versed in the areas of permits, building codes, architects and builders in the area. Finding Jack was virtually a "one stop shopping" experience. Without any hesitation, we would high recommend Jack Binder, Jr. to help with any aspect of the real esate market.

~ Randy Bushner

We have worked with numerous real estate agents over the years and Jack Binder, Jr. is in a class all by himself. Words cannot express how Jack exceeded our expectations when we recently set out to purchase a vacation home in Avalon, New Jersey. He listened to what was important to us, wasn’t afraid to give his opinion and guided us through what ended up being a very quick search (and settlement) due to Jack’s extensive knowledge of the real estate market. Jack is polite, punctual, and always available via call or text which made the whole process uncomplicated. He followed through on absolutely everything he promised. The Jack Binder Group is the “go to” team when buying or selling real estate in Avalon or Stone Harbor.

~ Felix and Ann DiFiore

Jack Binder and his group is one of the most impressive and well versed brokers I have ever dealt with and I have dealt with many. His knowledge of Seven Mile Island and contacts are superlative and helped making the sale of our shore home easy and a pleasure. We highly recommend him.

Jack Binder Jr was extremely helpful and professional from the start of our house search to the closing of our purchase. He is very responsive to questions and is very knowledgeable of the NJ shore housing market. His relaxed approach was refreshing as we contemplated our choices and made our decision. We would highly recommend The Jack Binder Group.

~ James and Deborah Volk

Jack Binder Jr. was highly recommended by a trusted relative who had done some research and deemed him to be the best man for us. It turned out to be truer then we could have ever anticipated. From our first meeting Jack won us over. He was the utmost professional but at the same time he listened to every one of our wants and needs. We truly felt he knew what we needed better then we did. We relied on his expertise on the island, his knowledge of the builders' community, and the real estate market. His respectful attitude, his sense of humor and just the total package made our journey from buyer to owner successful and happy. We can't thank him enough and look forward to our first year in our new home.

~ Mark and Jill Baer

We have owned homes in Avalon for almost 30 years. We just purchased our third home there and Jack Jr was our agent. It was a long protracted closing process, but Jack went above and beyond to help make it happen. He was always available , very knowledgeable, of not only the area ,but also of all the negotiation skills needed to make a sale. He is very conscientious and gregarious, a pleasure to work with. Now he has been helpful in helping us find quality professionals to address repairs and improvements. We wholeheartedly recommend Jack!

~ Sue and Jeff Glibert

We could not have had a better experience while searching for a shore property than we did with Jack Jr. Every trip we made to Avalon was worthwhile and enjoyable. Jack Jr. was attentive to what we were looking for and always used our time efficiently for showing us the possibilities within the market. His knowledge of the island, Avalon real estate market, and his local network provided us with all we needed to select the beach home of our dreams. We fully endorse Jack Jr. as our preferred real estate agent in Avalon/Stone Harbor.

~ Conor and Claudia M

We worked directly with Jack on the recent purchase of a NJ Shore home and we were thrilled with his professionalism, responsiveness, local knowledge and expertise. Jack is a pro and very nice to work with to boot. He is trustworthy and hard working. Though we ended up paying a little more than we wanted, we did feel that we were being told the truth all along, and Jack never pressured us during our decision making. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in the Avalon/Stone Harbor area.

~ Graham F.

My husband and I have had experience with many realtors over the past 15 years. Jack Binder, Jr. is by far the best one that we have ever worked with. Within the first hour of our first meeting, it was clear that he had the most extensive network in the Avalon/Stone Harbor community and was far more knowledgable about home sales than anyone in the area. Working with Jack and his team was a very postive experience. They did everything to make the process smooth and seamless and were incredibly responsive to our questions and needs. Even after our home was closed, Jack and his team were available to help us with the next steps and advise us in some important decisions. We couldn't be happier and fully believe that the home of our dreams became a reality because of Jack. We would highly recommend The Jack Binder Group to anyone who is looking to own a property at the shore and we consider Jack our realtor for life.

~ Jim and Domenica M.

Jack Binder Jr. was exceptional in every aspect of our search for the right property, through the conclusion of the transaction. He listened carefully to us and provided a good sampling of homes to view within our range so we would make a good decision. The condo that we purchased is perfectly matched to our needs. We are enjoying it greatly. Jack Jr. was highly responsive whenever we would call. Likely the most motivated realtor we have ever worked with, Jack was genuinely interested in making sure that we got the right home, no matter what it took. The office support in finalizing the details for our purchase made the process run smoothly and with little effort on our part. We highly recommend The Jack Binder Group for an exceptional experience with real estate needs.

~ Maryellen K and Don R

Jack and his team led us as buyers through a short sale purchase. We looked at numerous homes in the beginning, in a very efficient manner. Once we decided on the home we eventually prurchased, Jack and the team helped us in about every way possible. Jack's knowledge of the home, the island, his relationship with lenders, the seller's agent, and all parties involved was outstanding.

~ Tom M

My wife and I had the privilege of working with Jack, Sr. and Jack, Jr. in finding us a beach home in Avalon, NJ. The entire experience exceeded our expectations as they were consistently responsive and knowledgable. The working relationship started off with them taking considerable time to really understand our requirements, needs and family situation. Thereafter, they were patient and diligent in constantly finding us interesting properties that were very much in line with our requirements and budget. They were supportive and insightful in helping us assess which properties provided us the best value. As we then focused our interest on a couple specific properties, their guidance was invaluable in helping us develop a strategy for negotiation, which concluded successfully. Considerable support was provided to us as we moved forward through settlement and they have continued to assist us with post-closing questions and issue resolution. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a team who intimately understands the real estate market and who is committed to the highest level of client services.

~ Steve M.

We contracted with Jack Binder in October, 2012 after languishing for three prior years with a competitor out of misguided loyalty. Finally, after years of inaction we decided to meet with the top seller on the island. That meeting turned our outlooks 360 degrees. The pessimism of the prior agent was replaced with Jacks realistically-optimistic assessment, his intelligent analysis of the tough market, and his high energy level. What a boost to our spirits! Within 4 months he sold our condo at a price which we could live with in this tight market. We learned why Jack is the top seller on the island and heartily recommend his services.

~ Happ K.

My wife and I worked with Jack Binder for months to find the perfect home in Avalon. Jack was extremely knowledgable, and was always available and responsive. Since we live a few hours away, it was difficult to schedule visits, but Jack always found the time to meet us and educate us on the local market. After our purchase, Jack and his team remains very available and willing to offer advice. Jack was highly recommended to us, and we can see why. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home at the shore.

~ Tom S.

We cannot say enough about our wonderful experience with The Jack Binder Group. We worked with Jack Binder Jr. and along with his market knowledge, his dedication to us and honesty, we were able to find exactly what we wanted. We not only truly enjoyed the time that we spent finding our house with Jack Jr, but his input was invaluable. His staff was also very helpful with everything that we needed in this transaction.. We love our new house and we have both Jack Binder Jr. and Jack Binder Sr. to thank.

~ Chris and Dena C.

So here’s the bottom line on Jack, his family and staff. You’re in great hands with The Binders. My wife and I first met Jack when we purchased a property in Avalon at least a decade ago during which time he represented the seller of the property we purchased. Since that time, we have repeatedly interacted with Jack, Cindi, Jack Jr. and his professional staff as they represented us in the rental of our property (probably for the last 5 years) and, more recently, as the listing agent for the successful sale of the property. We know them quite well to say the least. They’ve got it all, and it’s all together. Words and phrases we would use to describe Jack include but are certainly not limited to: the three A’s (ability, affability, and availability), exceptionally experienced and incredibly knowledgeable about the 7 mile island market, exceedingly hard working, industrious and with wonderful people and communication skills. Jack is a self-starter; you will never need to ask him twice to perform a task/solve an issue, never. His honesty and integrity are absolutely without question. The real scoop is: he is always working for you and representing your best interests.

~ David R.

We feel so fortunate to have worked with Jack, Jr on our new home purchase. While he comes across as easy going and lo-key, he was relentless with running down answers to our many questions. He is one of the most responsive people I have had of the pleasure of working with. As the market was heating up, Jack always made you feel like you were his only client and your transaction the most important. We never felt rushed or that we were being juggled. It goes without say that his market knowledge was outstanding; referencing different transactions as we drove the streets of Avalon during our house visits. It was also impressive how he understood our needs and managed our time together very efficiently focusing only on opportunities that were true considerations instead of a blanket tour of the market. The whole transaction was very smooth due to the incredible attention to detail and service provided by Jack’s leadership and the team-oriented environment of the Binder Group.

~ Ann G.

My husband and I worked with Jack Binder for the sale of our home in Avalon and the purchase of a new property there. Jack's expertise about the island and property values is unparalleled. Jack worked tirelessly with us till he found what we were looking for. In addition, he secured the sale of our home in a timely and convenient manner.

~ Fran and Mike S

In November 2012 I completed the private sale of my vacation home in Stone Harbor and purchased another home listed by The Jack Binder Group. I cannot say enough about the help and expertise I received from Jack Binder Jr. (and Jack Binder Sr.). Jack Jr. gave me extremely helpful advice concerning my private sale and did a terrific job regarding my purchase of another home. Neither of these transactions would have been completed without his help and expertise. Jack Jr. is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. Every question was answered completely and in an extremely timely fashion. His entire team was great to deal with, especially Judy Hess.

~ Ed and Rosalie G

We have been dealing with Jack Binder and his wonderful team for more than 15 years, both buying/selling, as well as rentals, and have had superior experiences all the way..... Jack has managed seasonal rentals for us at two properties - a 3 bedroom townhouse in Stone Harbor, N.J. for the last 15 years - as well as a 2 bedroom apartment in Avalon, N.J. for the last 10 years. We have counted on him and his team for support and advice, as well as procuring us responsible tenants. He recently managed for us the sale of the townhouse, making the entire process as quick and stress-free as possible.

~ Mur H. and Mark P.

Jack, Jr is my "walks on water man"! He sold my condo in 48 hours (was most pleased with price), and handled a difficult closing with patience and grace! I doubt that I would now be loving my new home in PA among family and friends without the skillful guidance of Jack Binder, Jr!

~ Carol L.

We had an AWESOME experience with Jack Jr and the Binder group. He did a great job in helping us purchase our first beach house. Jack Jr had detailed and extensive knowledge of the Avalon/Stone Harbor market. He spent the time to understand our needs and gave us a wide variety of homes to look at. When we found the right house, his advice allowed us to close the deal at the right price. This included helping the seller understand fair value and getting us some pertinent zoning information. I've bought my share of homes both personally and as an investor and this was the best experience I ever had.

~ Joe and Linda S.

"The best" - Jack Jr. listed my property. He always called when showing it. He found found a buyer himself who he felt would be a good neighbor (my property is 1/2 of a duplex and I am living in the other half). He negotiated a fair price and made settlement a breeze.

~ George and Eileen R.

Jack Jr. was great to work with. His knowledge of the island market was obvious as he helped to sell my unique property. The fact that he looked at my unique situation and, rather than call it a negative, turned it into an attribute demonstrated to me that he was willing to work to sell my property. I can't thank him enough for always keeping me in the loop after showings and all the way up through the closing.

~ Rita T.

Over the years we have worked with many realtors and genuinely liked most of them. However, Jack Binder Jr. has outclassed every one of them in every category. He epitomizes the highest qualities one would wish for in a realtor. To be specific, he is brilliant, inventive, possesses great financial acuity, and knows his market and products. On a personal note Jack has tremendous communication skills, very positive, but also honest and direct, with a great sense of humor. My husband and I were always treated with respect and kindness. Jack worked tirelessly in helping us find a beach home that met our many requirements. He is a highly skilled negotiator and perseveres in the best interest of all involved. It is unlikely that we could have found anyone else who would work as hard and put in such long hours, always returning our calls the same day, as Jack Binder Jr. He opened our eyes to possibilities we would never have envisioned!

~ Deb R and Lou C

Jack Sr assisted in the purchase of a home in Avalon, NJ, and was the listing agent for the sale of our other Avalon home. Jack's experience in this market spans approximately 30 years, and his innate knowledge and insights were invaluable as we were able to complete both transactions in a timely manner. Jack's suggestions as to the prices on both the purchase and sale were right on, and we were very pleased with the results.

~ Joe and Barbara M

Jack Jr called me about my house in Stone Harbor that had been for sale by another agent. The listing had expired and the other agent had not contacted me. Jack Jr saw this and took the opportunity to call me and tell me what he could do. I have never met him in the entire time he has been trying to sell my house. Yet I trusted him implicitly. He was always available and forthcoming. I truly appreciated his insight in to the market at the shore and in general. Thanks to his incredible effort the house finally sold. I would recommend him to anybody who wants to buy or sell a house at the shore of New Jersey.

~ Niraj P

Jack Binder Jr. is nothing short of a major find for me. I have dealt with 20 realtors in my career of building homes, and no one was ever more knowledgeable, responsive, honest, available, and down right smart. I wanted good deals, so he found them. I closed on two properties in three months, and another in thirty days. Simply the best!
