Since joining Gebroe-Hammer in 2011, Pomerantz has been instrumental in dramatically ex- panding Gebroe-Hammer’s pres- ence within Passaic and Bergen Counties while representing client interests in the greater Northern NJ metro.

The North Jersey market specialist, whose submarket focus is Passaic County and Bergen County, has arranged sales involving over 400 units that sold for $53.1 million on behalf of clients spanning these two counties as well as Essex, Hudson andMiddlesex counties during the past 10 months. In Passaic and Bergen alone, Pomerantz has recorded a total of five transactions. The prop- erties spanned the strong-hold municipalities of Fairview, Ro- chelle Park and Ridgefield Park in Bergen County and the City of Passaic in the county that bears the same name. “Apartment buildings domi- nate the ‘genetic makeup’ of the overall housing stock in Bergen and Passaic counties, due in large part to the post- war middle-class housing boom that occurred on the edges of American cities,” said Pomer- antz. “On average, apartment units account for 71% of the housing stock, with some mu- nicipalities like Passaic ringing in at a resounding 84%.” According to the U.S. Census a section of the MARE Real Estate Journal 350 Lincoln Street, Suite 1105 Hingham, MA 02043 P: 781-740-2900 Fax: 781-740-2929 www.marejournal.com New Jersey
