TESTIMONIALS

My wife Patti and I travelled down to our old stomping grounds in Avalon from Philadelphia this past April with the idea of just “looking” at some potential properties to either own or rent out. We hadn’t been renters since 2015 and hadn’t owned anything in Avalon since 1986 but with the kids out of the nest we wanted to recapture some of the fun of our youth. We decided to stop in unannounced at our former rental agents, Ferguson Dechert and see if Jack Binder Sr was able to show us around. He wasn’t there but his son Jack Jr was and within ten minutes he had us at our first property. The house was beautiful but a little too close to the main drag for a couple of old folks like us. The next house Jack showed us was near the ballfields on the quiet North end of the town. The couple that owned the property had just redone the house and it was perfect for us. Five bedrooms and three baths with a pool. The price was within our range as well. I think I called Jack on the drive back to Philly and within a couple days we reached an agreement on our new home away from home. Without Jack’s knowledge and understanding of the market and his quick assessment of what we were looking for, I’m quite sure we wouldn’t have bought anything that day. So, on behalf of my wife and hopefully future grandkids I’d like to thank Jack and his team at Ferguson Dechert for helping us achieve our dream.

The Jack Binder Group worked very hard with multiple parties to negotiate and move our shore property to close. They are highly recommended for the Avalon and Stone Harbor areas!

Jack Binder JR is a total pro. He knows the local landscape better than anyone on the island. Unlike most realtors, he is honest and PATIENT! We were current homeowners looking for a move to something a little bigger and he worked with us for months and months and months until we found the right  fit for us. He went on the home purchase roller coaster with us and really went above and beyond in every area. We recommend him without hesitation. In fact, we recommend him to all of our friends.

After searching for a vacation home in Ventnor, Margate, and Longport for a period of time, my husband and I ultimately decided to look into homes for sale in Avalon. We called Ferguson Dechert based on a property online, and was connected to Jack Binder, Jr. We requested seeing several homes which Jack arranged for us within our schedule. He also suggested another home which was exactly what we were looking for, and which we purchased. Jack worked with us throughout the process, answered all of our questions, and always provided sound advice. He was always quickly responsive and easily accessible; a true professional. We decided on a beautiful home in Avalon, moved into it in February, and couldn’t be happier. It was such a pleasure working with Jack. We have worked with other realtors and passed searches and purchases, but he stands out for his professionalism, and knowledge of the market and the Avalon community. He is personable and always made us feel like we were his most important clients. For those looking for a realtor, they can be confident to know they are in very good hands with Jack. Sincerely, Cathy and John Solari

My wife and I had been interested in purchasing a home in Avalon for many years. Jack would take us out periodically to better understand the housing market and to look at homes designed by various builders. During these excursions he never pressured us to purchase. When we were finally ready to buy, Jack was the first person we called. We saw a house on the market the first day it was listed and we called Jack. His advice was to come see the house that day because he thought the home would sell quickly. By the time we arrived later that day, there were active bids on the home. Jack's experience kicked in and he coached us on the proper amount to bid and took the lead on our behalf negotiating specific conditions that the seller was requesting. He quickly introduced us to a local lawyer and we submitted a contract right away. Jack's advice and experience paid off and we were awarded the home. Jack's support staff made the entire purchasing process very easy. Jack is a man of integrity, he knows everyone in town and has a long successful track record as one of the best realtors in the area. I would highly recommend Jack and The Jack Binder Group if you are interested in purchasing a home in Avalon or Stone Harbor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Avalon, NJ.


Jack and his team are the very best and most knowledgable real estate professionals when a seller like me needs representation at the high end of the Avalon market. He has a current feel for market trends, pricing and, very importantly, competitive listings and the seller's real estate value proposition compared to those other listings. Jack is very responsive and an excellent communicator. We also used his services when buying a smaller property.

Jim and Barbara Summers


The Jack Binder Group did an excellent job of pricing and marketing our home. We signed the Agency contract on a Thursday, on both Friday and Saturday the Group had two showings and on Monday we entered into sales contract They also were very helpful in dealing with sale related matters right up to the closing. Very nice people to work with.

James and Joanne Keith


I've worked with The Jack Binder Group for both the sale of my property in Avalon, NJ and also with searching/buying a home. I refer them to everyone because I received the absolute best service that any agent ever provided. Jack Binder prepares me for every single step of the process, ALWAYS answers all of my questions, pays attention to my requests and details. They are extremely prompt and available to us. It feels 100% right from the start to the finish of each transaction. My family trust and love working with The Jack Binder Group and will continue to do so with all of our future dealings in real estate. No one knows the island better. I give the highest rating possible for The Jack Binder Group in every department!

Sold a Condo home in 2018 in Avalon, NJ


Jack Binder Jr was very knowledgeable on the Stone Harbor area and spent significant time with us. He helped in the negotiations and also stayed with us during construction thru the closing process. We would recommend Jack as an excellent realtor.

Michael and Michele Pessina


The Jack Binder Group team were incredible to work with from day one. Jack knows the real estate market down the shore like the back of his hand and was extremely helpful in answering any preliminary questions we had. He also made it a point to equip us with all of the necessary facts before making a decision all while not pushing us to do something we did not want to do. However, when we made up our minds on the property we wanted, he was extremely aggressive/creative and did everything in his power to ensure we were the ones that won the bid (We were just one of multiple potential buyers for the property). I can’t say we would have gotten our house had we been represented by someone else. Jack’s relationships and experience were absolutely vital in getting the deal done. We were then handed off to Judy, who was extremely organized and thorough in walking us through the rest of the process to ensure we closed on time. She was fantastic. They are class acts through and through.

Nick Alfier


I have owned several properties in Avalon/Stone Harbor. Jack has been involved in the sale of three different properties. He is excellent in every respect and he is clearly the lead guy on the island. He and his son make an excellent team and they will never lead you astray. You can't go wrong with these guys.

Bob and Barbara Jacobs


Jack Binder, Jr. was thorough, thoughtful, and provided consistent follow up during the listing and selling process. He never overpromised, nor did he underpromise to lower my expectations - he only shared his viewpoint in realistic terms. But that was just the business side... on a personal side, Jack understood our family's emotional attachment to the property, and he handled the process in a way that paid great credit to our love for the home. After this experience I have no problem saying Jack is an exceptional and professional realtor. Even better, I would happily tell anyone he has become a friend of our family.

Eric and Jeanne Savage


Our "seller" experience with Jack Binder, Jr., was exceptional. All aspects from our listing to the settlement were seamlessly perfect. Jack's professional and spirited conduct was on at all times. His knowledge of the Avalon and Stone Harbor markets were spot on when it came to and negotiating the sale. We have the highest regard for the Binder Group. Jack was convinced without a doubt that we were priced correctly and that he would have us a buyer before year end. He was spot on. Jack's negotiating skills put our buyer within a half percent of listing price. Way to go Jack Binder Group!

Irene and Fred Hill


Jack Binder Jr. is a true professional and the best real estate agent I have ever had. We met Jack last year and he was quickly able to assess and meld what my husband and I were looking for and showed us several great properties. He also helped us understand the Avalon and Stone Harbor real estate markets, and the potential pitfalls of some properties we inquired about. Jack is honest and seems to genuinely care about his clients and does not oversell the product. He also is incredibly connected and is able to get the answers to questions about the property or services needed almost immediately, which is very helpful when making important decisions. Additionally, Judy in Jack's office made the whole closing process a breeze and went above and beyond to be helpful. I would highly recommend Jack and his agency for your Avalon/Stone Harbor home purchase.

Rashna and Paul Staid


Positive experience working with Jack Jr. Very impressed with his knowledge of the Avalon-Stone Harbor markets. Questions answered promptly......excellent communication skills.

Raymond Naumann


We found Jack Binder Jr. to be exceptional with respect to his knowledge of our interests, the local market and deal value assessment. He also deserves the highest marks for responsiveness and persistence through a 1 year+ search to find us a property that aligned with our personal and financial objectives. We couldn't imagine having a better experience

Matt Adams


Our family had been looking for their "dream" vacation home at the shore for almost a year and was about to give up when we met Jack, Jr. Immediately he took the time to learn what our needs, likes and dislikes were and began to match us to homes that were compatible to all 6 of us, which was no easy task. Jack made what had been an uncomfortable and disappointing process enjoyable, and his unmatched knowledge of the market found the perfect home for us in less than 30 days. Every step of the way, Jack advocated for our family in a professional and caring way and his patience with us when we turned down house after house until we found just the right one was what set him apart from all other agents we had dealt with. Where other agents disappeared after we would reject the house, they wanted to sell us, not the one we wanted, Jack just dug in even more until the right one came along. Even after settlement, Jack was there for us to help us learn all about Avalon. He remains a friend and trusted advisor and we unequivocally recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect vacation home.

Pete Villari


When we decided to list our home, we wanted someone with the expertise and knowledge of the islands market. From the beginning we knew we made the right choice in choosing Jack Binder. His support and guidance ultimately aided us in selling our home in 48 hours after it hit the market. The professionalism and efficiency of his team was seamless.

Patricia Kelly


Working with Jack was an incredibly easy and terrific experience. He made what I expected to be an onerous and frustrating experience into a completely enjoyable one. Jack was always available by phone, email or in-person. I had high expectations & he exceeded them! His network of contacts was invaluable to get things done! I would highly recommend Jack to my family, friends and anyone looking to buy in AV or SH!! 

Tom Mullin


Working with Jack Binder Jr was a great experience. He is extremely professional and so knowledgeable of every aspect of buying a home in Avalon. I would highly recommend his group to anyone!

Kevin McGeary


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 than 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 than 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.

Jill and Mark 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.

Sue Crovetti


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.

Deb Volk


Our experience with Jack Binder, Jr. was the best experience we've ever had buying a home. Jack insights and knowledge about Avalon are unmatched which really helps you make an informed decision. I would recommend Jack Binder, Jr. to anyone looking to buy a home in Avalon.

Gary Benedict


I have worked with many realtors over the years and Jack is number one!!!!! He and his team were helpful, friendly and supportive from start to finish. Jack made us feel welcomed to our new hometown!!!!!! My husband and I only worked with Jack a few months and in that time, we feel we have a friend for life. You have seen the rest Jack Binder is the best!

Dominic and Michele DiDonato


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 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 highly recommend Jack Binder, Jr. to help with any aspect of the real estate market.

Randi 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.

Ann and Felix DiFiore


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.

Marc and Catherine Manoff


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 rigid 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!

Bob Bednar


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 agent in their market. We highly recommend Jack Binder and his team.

Elaine Watson


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 Pouliot


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 Farley


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 Joachim


We had a very positive experience working with Jack Binder, selling a beloved home that has been in our family for almost 50 years. We were very impressed with Jack's extensive knowledge of the Avalon market, specifically bayfront properties. He spent many hours on conference calls with our families, on updates, new listings and strategies. His responsiveness to any questions/concerns was always immediate and when it came time for negotiations, we felt confident in Jack's skills, and were kept informed throughout the entire process. He handled the delicate task of selling a beloved family home with respect and concern. It was a pleasure to work Jack. He is very knowledgeable and professional.

Penny McNally


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 knowledgeable about home sales than anyone in the area. Working with Jack and his team was a very positive 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.

Domenica Mastroianni


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 and Jennifer Foster


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 Hayman


I recently acquired an investment property through the Jack Binder group, and I found their team highly professional in providing my wife and I a full array of real estate services and insight. From the first meeting through the date of close and now following they are your partner and advocate.

Dan Ostien


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 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.
