After graduating from Rutgers University with a Bachelor’s in Communication and Psychology, Bridget decided real estate was indeed her professional calling. She began her career in 2004 working for the leading national home builder, K. Hovnanian Companies, initially at their home design gallery and then as a sales consultant. Bridget excelled in selling various types of homes, from active adult single-family residences to townhomes, to condo-style living, winning her the title of 2006 Rookie of the year at the New Jersey Shore Builders Conference as well as K. Hovnanian 2006 Rookie of the year.
Since 2005, she has sold numerous condo buildings on the Hudson River Waterfront, including K. Hovnanian at Paulus Hook, Lofts at Riverwalk, and Grandview at Riverwalk. After departing K. Hovnanian, Bridget joined Douglas Elliman at Hudson Club at Port Imperial where she advanced to Sales Director and was tasked with the responsibilities of sales, marketing, and sales office operation. Over the years, she has been active in both residential resales and working with developers on new construction and design. At Douglas Elliman, her focus was on the Gold Coast - Jersey City, Hoboken and Port Imperial, as well as Monmouth County. Most recently Bridget sold and designed from the ground up the prestigious townhouse community of Carriage Gate at Little Silver. Following this project Bridget successfully designed, marketed, and completed the lease up of Bay Village, a luxury rental building located in Atlantic Highlands.
