We bumped into Athena Saunders at an open house and automatically knew that we wanted her to lead our home search for us in Hoboken.

She was extremely thorough and walked us through every bit of the stressful house buying process.

Paul De Zagon recently helped my husband and I buy our first house.

We started working with Paul right around Thanksgiving of 2014 and we closed on our home at the end of June. Paul was great to work with! Very easy to talk to, honest, and responds right away. Paul didn't just treat us like clients--he treated us like friends. Being property virgins, he made sure that we weren't making mistakes and digging ourselves into a financial situation that isn't ideal for first time home buyers. Paul took out the time during weekends to show us houses without rushing. He walked us throughout this entire process, which definitely helped reduce our stress. I would recommend Paul and his services to anyone. I have already in fact! Nothing is better than working with an agent who understands what you are looking for and works with you to get it. Thanks, Paul!!


Athena Saunders helped us find our first home together.

She was very professional and a pleasure to work with. She always made herself available around our busy work schedules, even meeting with us late at night to finalize paperwork and make sure we were the first to submit an offer for our apartment. She was very knowledgeable, honest, and provided great advice every step of the process. We can't recommend Athena enough to anyone who is looking to buy or rent in Hoboken!


Dave listens to his clients needs and responds appropriately with the right properties for the right time in their life.

I relocated from Hoboken from Chicago and he helped me acclimate into the market.

My family and I had the pleasure to work with Dave to buy our first home in Fairview.

As first time buyers, the process can be intimidating, but David was an excellent guide throughout the transaction. His knowledge of home finishes and construction is second to none and really helped us to understand the costs involved with home ownership & renovation. He is always available (at all hours) and went out of his way to make us feel secure throughout the process. His skills in negotiation helped us to get the house at a price that made us very comfortable. Dave made sure to keep in touch with the attorneys and lenders throughout the process to ensure that the deal was progressing as planned. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone buying or selling in the area

Anthony Pinto helped us in finding and purchasing an investment property in Hoboken.

He was extremely nice and personable from the first time we met. He asked all of the right questions to zero in on exactly what we were looking for in an apartment. We appreciated that he showed us what we were interested in, and not things out of our comfort zone. Anthony is extremely professional and knows all of the ins and outs of his business, while still maintaining a very friendly relationship with his client. He also has extensive knowledge of Hoboken and the surrounding areas, as well as knowledge of the buying process, looking out for his client and walking them through the purchase.

Dave was extremely helpful when helping me find a new apartment I love.

Moving to an area I was unfamiliar with would normally be very stressful but Dave was so knowledgeable and patient, he really made the process an enjoyable experience. Dave was also very intuitive to my preferences so there was no time wasted visiting properties that I was uninterested in or viewing apartments outside of my financial requirements. Dave was extremely accessible, positive, and dependable throughout and I greatly appreciated his commitment to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend his services to potential buyers and sellers in the area.

As an investor, David Sarnowski has helped me buy and sell multiple properties over the years.

He is very knowledgeable about the local areas, property values, and rehab/construction. He is also fairly accessible and prompt when responding to my phone calls, texts, and emails. I would highly recommend Dave for your real estate buying/selling needs

I have worked with Paul de Zagon on a number of different real-estate transactions over the years, including the purchase of my primary residence and investment property.

Unlike other realtors, Paul's background is unique as he is able to combine his in-depth knowledge of the real estate industry with his 15+ years experience of working on Wall Street. He is extremely hard-working and transparent, and truly has a passion for helping individuals and families find the right home - whether it is a rental/purchase/sale - or investment property.


I am incredibly happy that I selected Brian McCarthy as my realtor for the sale of my apartment in Hoboken.

From the very beginning, he gave me thoughtful and honest advice as to the best way to sell my apartment for the most money in a reasonable period of time. His advice proved 100% correct and I was able to quickly obtain a fantastic price. Brian also went the extra mile throughout the entire process. He stayed in constant communication with me and answered all of my questions regardless of how randomly and frequently I asked. I simply cannot say enough good things about the experience I had and I enthusiastically recommend Brian McCarthy to anyone and everyone.

Where to begin. boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a condo in Jersey City/Hoboken around fall of 2013. We met Athena Saunders at an open house after working with another realtor who we felt just didn't care too much about us, which is par for the course in Hudson county. We knew right away Athena would take care of us. We could not have had a better, more amazing home buying experience with any other realtor. Not only was Athena there for advice when looking at apartments, she helped us with every last tiny question and detail throughout the buying process since this was our 1st time - she made sure we understood condo by-laws, when she saw an impending issue, how we could transform a room to make it work, when we'd have to talk to our attorney, what options we had when we almost backed out of the offer, etc. One defining moment with Athena was our final look at the condo we eventually purchased (and now love!!). My boyfriend was still hesitant if we were making the right decision with our purchase, and Athena took him into his "problem room" and basically said, "tell me what it is you're uncomfortable with, let's talk it out, if you can't see past it, let's get out of here now and rescind the offer". I thought that was a fabulous trait of Athena's and thankful for it - we knew we were always getting her honest opinions and were never pressured to buy. Simply put: she was amazing to work with, and you are lucky to have her as a realtor! CALL HER! You will thank me!


Dave helped me get an amazing duplex apartment in Weehawken that I love, he took care of everything in the process and was on top of his game!

Thank you!
